Diamond Mine & X Factor
Four Corner Cut-Out & Corner Strips
Jodi used the Four Corner Cut-Out centered in the middle of her page and added four Corner Strips to each corner. Four 2x2 squares and 1x2 Canterbury Border Die filled in the empty spots. We love how she used patterned paper on the largest Corner Strip to make a large frame for her layout.

Crisscross & X Factor
The Crisscross and X factor are a couple of our most popular and advanced collections of dies. Not every single die will connect with these two collections but they do work well together.
Take, for instance, this page by Jodi. She used the Crisscross 4x6 die in the center of her page and the Crisscross 3x3 Dies in the corners. On the left and rights sides she added the Crisscross 3x4 Dies. On the top and bottom of her page she used the X factor 2x4 Die. The X Factor Die connects to the smaller triangles from the Crisscross 4x6 Die.
Tami expertly used the Crisscross 3x5 and 4x6 along with the X Factor 2x4 on her page, "Cotton Field". She has two X Factor 2x4s on either side of the center Crisscross 4x6 focal point. Then she put two Crisscross 3x5s side by side on top and bottom of her page. The two collections work seamlessly together.
We love how Tami used patterned paper to create a rhythm on her page. You can see the diamond shape the floral paper she chose makes on her layout. Her couple in the center really stand out as the focal point.
"UP" by Candy Spiegel - Free-styled pattern
Look at this page, "Up" that Candy made. She used the Crisscross 4x4 Die for her center element. Then she used the X Factor 2x3, which comes in a set with the X factor 3x5. For the corners of her layout she used the Corner Cut-Out Squares Die.
We love how she extended the photos from her X factor 2x3 dies into her Crisscross 4x4 Die! She tied everything together by using the same brown colored card stock. She made a great nautical page using these great and different collections.
Clover & Going in Circles
Here is an interesting combination you may not have thought of before - Clover Die and Going in Circles!
Looped 2x2 & Clover
"Japanese Gardens" by Paije Potter
We love the design this makes looping around the page. She also used the Gratitude 12x12 grid paper from the Happiness Collection as the base of her layout.
We love how this page with the Clover Die and Looped 2x2 Die turned out. Try putting together a similar combination on your page!
Angles & X Factor
Here Paije put them together for a great design. The X Factor Die comes in a set of two 3x3 X Factor Dies. She put four of them in the center of her page with an Angles 2x6 Die around the outside edges. Did you notice how she aligned the horizon in her photos on each side of her layout?
We think Paije did an amazing job bringing these two dies together!
Angles & Diamond Mine
Did you notice how she place her floral, garden, and leafy tree pictures together? Putting similar photos together makes her design more cohesive. And in turn, the photos that are different, like the houses in the triangles of the Angles 2x6 Die really stand out.
Try Stacking the Dies!

We love how elaborate her page of simple fruits and vegetables look when she stacks these dies together!
We hope this article gave you ideas for combining different Mosaic Moments Dies on your pages and layouts!
