Everything I already had except the Spellbinders Nestabilities. I bought them today @ Michaels with my 50% off coupon. This is my first set of Nestabilities. I wasn't sure what I was going to do with them, but after thinking about it today I thought they'd make GREAT journall spots. So, I gathered some paper scraps (keeping the colors of my counterfeit kit in mind so that I can use these with it). I also pulled the ink from my add-on color kit.
Step 1 - run Nestability die through my cuttlebug.
Step 2 - cut a proportionate circle from kraft cardstock.
Step 3 - adhere circle to Nestability die.
Step 4 - Decorate kraft circle to whatever fit your project. I used some journal stamps on a few, other I drew my own lines on with a pen.
And here's what you end up with! =]
The Spellbinders Nestabilities dies that I bought today come with 6 different dies. They also emboss (which I did not do). If I would have embossed the scalopped circle I could have created a dimensional look with my journal piece (great idea! May have to try that tomorrow). These dies are so neat, and a lot easier to store than other large bulky die plates. I think I might have to go back with another 50% off coupon and get the squares!
Another alternative if you do not have any Nestabilities is to use your cricut. I know a few fonts have scalloped circle shadows, and of course plain circles.
My challenge for you is to create a journal spot using one, two, or any of your diecuts! The possiblities are endless when it comes to creating! =]
