June 14 Die Cut post challenge and DT introductions!

Happy Friday, Die Cut Lovers! We have another great challenge for you today! Here it is already mid-June .... now, how the heck did that happen? Seems like the year is just swooshing by! So, in honor of Summer (or everything outdoors for those of you in the Southern Hemisphere and craving some sunshine), the Die Cut Challenge this time is: 

Your project must be new ... and a Die tool or Die Cut machine must be used!! No stickers and no stamped images unless that are subsequently Die Cut. 

Before we go any further with our Reveal, we'd like to introduce you to some new Die Cut Team members! Here they are:

Hi, I’m Sheila!   I am so happy to be a part of the Stuck on U Sketches die cut team!  I am a wife, and a stay at home mom to two beautiful girls and one insane cat.   Most afternoons, I can be found in my sunny scrap room, working on a project.   My style changes often…I like to follow trends and try new techniques!  I love haunting thrift stores and garage sales for my next project.  Besides scrapbook supplies, Ihoard  collect glass bottle stoppers and miniature tin can chairs.  You can find more of my work at:

Hi, my name is Kim Hill. I have been crafting and upcycling (it’s “altered art” now, I think) for as long as I can remember. My love for paper crafting began with scrapbooking in high school during the 1980s. Since then, I’ve added card making, home décor projects (think paper wreaths, frames, etc), and book binding to the mix. Stuck on U Sketches is my third opportunity to participate on a design team. I love inspiring others and being inspired by others to create beautiful things. When not in my craft studio, I can be found hanging out with my wonderful family or working on my PhD dissertation.

My name is Brenda Lawrence,  I am 53 years old and I'm mom to 6 boys/men and grandma to 6.  I love crafting, reading, being with family, camping and outdoor activities as my health allows.  I love my husband who is my soul mate and our life on the farm. I'm a country bumpkin through and through!  I don't often leave the farm because this is the best place to be!  I have so many blessings and I thank God everyday for them and now I have one more to be added to my blessing list and that is being on the SOUS design team! What an honor for me!!!! I look forward to many challenges with these talented ladies!!

Hi everyone,
My name is Melissa with Moe Creations,I started out scrapbooking in 2004 which spun into card making and have been loving every minute of it! I occasionally make some altered projects,  love making little boxes, oh, lets just face it, anything that has to do with paper, I just love!!  I started my blog on April 8th, 2010, have met so many wonderful people, designed for some amazing crafters such as;
