Art Journaling with Sizzix

Dear Fellow Journalers,

One of my favorite crafting tool  is my Sizzix die cutting machine. I have made so many different cards and paper crafting items with the dies and embossing folders that are made specifically for this machine. So when I came across this tutorial I had to read and share. This tutorial uses any type of die cutting machine and a Spellbinders die. This is useful for making a statement on a journal page or highlighting an image. Enjoy!
