Default Saturday 8/10/13 12PM EST TECH TALK 03 Positively Negative

Title: Positively Negative
Hostess: Cheryl (Motherload)
Keyword: TechVSBN03
Day/Date: Saturday, August 10, 2013
Time: 12pm EST

Do you ever wonder what to do with the paper you have left over after punching or die-cutting an image? With a little advanced planning, you can save that scrap from your trash can and use it on your layout.

First, punch or die-cut a shape. Be sure to leave a little space around all sides.
Cut around the negative space (the hole that shape left) in a square, rectangle, or tag shape.
Back that piece with colored cardstock or patterned paper and use the resulting embellishment (as well as your original die-cut) on your layout.

Some variations on this technique include using 3-D foam tape to pop up the negative piece, using the negative space as a journaling area, placing a photo under the cut-out instead of paper, or creating a border using multiple cut-out spaces backed with another color cardstock or patterned paper.

My sample page: Fort

TechVSBN03 Gallery

I really like this one, Cheryl! You have some good suggestions too. I may not get this one done today as I'm supposed to visit my mom. That might not happen since I've inherited DH's cold and really shouldn't expose my 93-year-old mom. So we'll see.

Isn't it 1 pm EST? I gotta get it straight, since I'm due to post next!

Wendy, I thought EST is 2 hours ahead of PST at this time of year due to daylight savings. Did I mess that up? If so, I'm sorry, gals. Wendy, I would just post when you feel the time is right, since we're all dying to see your challenge anyway!

Love it and I know just what I'm going to do. Just happen to have my new CTMH Artbooking Cricut Cart and I cut out a page piece to use and I realized the background was JUST as cute! Hoping I can get this paper I'm writing for one of my classes done soon so I can play

Nope, other way around--PST and EST spring forward together, so it's 3 hrs in summer. Arizona doesn't change, so California and AZ have the same 3 hr. difference from EST during DST. It always confuses me too, because I'm originally from NY (EST) plus we don't observe DST in Arizona.

Anyway, I'll post at 3 pm EST, so there'll be the 2 hrs. between challenges.

hmm...another challenge for digi. I'll have to ponder this one to try and make it work. I've got the other 2 pages done so I need to upload and then I'll think a bit and cruise through my digi files to see if anything similar catches my eye....

sorry to hear you're not feeling well...seems odd to have a cold in the heat of the summer, doesn't it? We just had some cooler weather here last week and DH was complaining about not feeling well because of the change.

I like your page Cheryl. This will be easier than I thought it would be so now I'll just need to find the pictures to use and off I go!

In Arizona, we have the "heat" no matter what season--so it's not so uncommon! DH hardly ever catches anything, so it was really a surprise that he caught it (not so much that he gave it to me )

It's so nice to have you here scrapping this weekend, Terry! Sorry it's due to your immobilization!

Just got home from Mom's and too tired to do this, but it is a great challenge! You make it look so easy, but I can't come up with any quick ideas. Last week-end I had company all week-end so couldn't work on the challenges. I got three of them done. I can use this challenge later, it just won't be within the time.
