Oh how sweet and fun! Favorite moment, indeed! Let’s take a closer look at how I’ve used the Knockout Words Metal Die in three different ways on my layout!

1. Create a big title that packs some punch! 

I couldn’t resist using the negative cuts from the Knockout Words Metal Die to form my “Favorite Moment” title with the Good Times Paper Stack. I used the deep blue patterned paper to make this punched-out title look even more striking and effective! I could have also backed these die cut words with another patterned paper or even some clear acetate, but instead I opted to messily machine stitch through mine to compliment my overall page design. 

2. Create your own custom embellishments!

With such a loving theme to my page’s story, it was an obvious decision to make my own heart die cuts from the heart-shaped die. Again, I used a Good Times Paper Stack patterned paper with the die set, but cork, vellum and fabric would have been a terrific option for this too! The star in the Knockout Words Metal Die could also be incorporated this way. 

In keeping with my distressed and messily machine-stitched page, I also stitched the custom created hearts onto my layout. Repetition and continuity in design is everything to me! 

3. Use the Knockout Words alphas to create your own sentiments! 

Beneath my photo cluster is the machine stitched and die cut sentiment “love you more,” which I created from combining the “Love You,” “Favorite,” and “Moment” word dies. I rearranged the die cut alphas to make a sentiment that suited my story and needs—simple, but such a great way to maximize this versatile metal die set! 

These are simple, striking and really easy ideas to use the Knockout Words Metal Die in your everyday scrapbooking projects! I hope my layout has inspired you to get creating with this awesome die set today!
