How often do you cut your pictures to shapes other than squares or rectangles?
What keeps you from cutting your pictures in other shapes?

Bonus points!!

Do a layout (single or double page) that has at least 1 picture cut into any shape other than a square or a rectangle (rounding corners doesn't count) and post it in this thread by 11:59 PM Mountain Time June 29th 2013 for 5 bonus points in the Post/Scrap Challenge!

I havent done it in at least a year.. What holds me back is that I dont have a circle cutter. so just using a stencil and free-hand cutting them dont turn out very nice..

I rarely do anything other than square or rectangle. When I first started I did a lot of oval, because I have oval cutters.

I round corners a lot. I just prefer the square or rectangle more.

I'll have to see what I can come up with for the bonus challenge

I'll break out my Creative Memories circle and oval cutters every now and then. Really should try to get them out more often. I've not tried triangle pictures yet (or other shapes). It's been a looooong time since I cut out part of the picture (think that is called cutting out the silhouette??).

I hardly ever branch out with shapes. I have a circle cutter, but I'm not good at working it! I do the occasional circle picture... even if I don't use my circle cutter I can find something that's the right size circle and trace it. Or cut it out with the cricut and trace it and I can usually do pretty well. Not perfect, but it doesn't look awful.

Here's a heart collage I was really proud of!

Besides the rectangles & squares, I cut pics into circles using my circle cutter. For another page, I actually cut up the pictures to create the title, that's probably the most unusual shapes I've cut pics into. I've also filled in a swimming pool frame (just posted the page in the UNO thread). That took some creative cutting to fit.

That heart page is great, Janessa! I've cut pictures and used the other pieces of the picture as accents, but mostly rectangles. I'll have to see what I can come up with....or at least try to.

I used to cut pictures into random shapes (usually with stencils) all the time! I kind of grew out of it, though. I'll have to see what I can do. lol

I forgot about cutting pics into titles! Definitely counts as cutting them into other shapes!

Yep, did it in about half an hour, too, from start to finish.

Great page, Brittanie!! I love how you used circle pics to make the Zoo title. Very very cool and I may scraplift from you AGAIN.

the Z in the title is also a picture. Of a peacock in a tree. But it's sideways and hard to see.
