Hi Luci...right now I just use one-my Big Kick. I LOVE it-because it is so simple and fast. I do use dies from different companies-I have not had a die that couldn't work with this machine. The only problem I have had is if I want to cut thicker papers-they don't usually work well with the thin metal dies. A few days ago I tried to cut through clear acetate with a wafer thin die, and it couldn't make a perfect clean cut;-(.
OMG, day 7 already! For today I am using-Laina Lamb Design Treat Pocket Die-namics, Lots of Love Die-namics. The Lots of love dies is a must in my book, especially for Valentine (and so much more than that). I can use the 'you' & 'love' over and over again! And I have. Now the cute little treat pocket will work for little projects to hold gift cards, tags and of course sweet treats too.
I have so enjoyed my guest time with MFT's and thanks for stopping by, dropping comments, and hopefully finding inspiration.
Banners, banners, banners! Today I am showing off the new MFT's Dimensional Banners Die-namics. I have wanted a die set of banners for a while dreams do come true! It's funny how you want something for so long, you get it, and then you get stumped about what to do with them. That was my situation for most of my day yesterday. I finally got my act together by midnight thank goodness school was cancelled.
Today-I am sharing Laina Lamb Desings Picture This stamps & Cute Cameras 2 die-namics, and Centerpieces Framed Lovebirds die-namics. The camera/cellphone dies are super cute, and I love the stamps perfect sayings. The last card almost didn't happen, lol. The red doily dies are covering up tears from ribbon that was there. The lovebirds are sweet, I had to do what I could to save that card(it didn't turn out as I envisioned). I hope you enjoy today's release on my blog & MFT's blog/&links...
TGIF! I can't believe that it is 5 days until Christmas. I think I am already-checking my list, twice. Here is a fun little project for holding a card & a gift card I made for my TCD's dt blog post today. I used the TCD's Santa's list line and MFT's bow & tag dies. Merry Christmas!!!
The Christmas decorations are done! I just need a TREE, which won't happened until next week. This year I am doing Advent with the girls, and they are loving it! I still have a few more boxes to make, like 12 more. I am having trouble finding the sizes I want, argh. Last night I made the NOEL garland-I used some glitter spray paint, that stuff is awesome! I am going to hunt down more stuff to spray this weekend. Not that I need more decorations!
Over the weekend I grabbed a few sheets of my favorite gold glitter & mirrored papers from Michael's-since they were on sale. I made a few Thanksgiving decorations with the golden papers & my Big Kick-a garland and some framed art. I only wish that my photos turned out better, I tried & tried! It is so hard (for me) taking photos of things with lots of white. Argh!
Today-I have these Christmas cards on the MFT's Blog. Once I started making one Christmas card I really got into the holiday cheer and made quite a few! It was nice playing with the chalkboard look-I thought I didn't have the right stuff on-hand...so I used white embossing powder and some really old Pebbles chalking set-viola! I was so happy that I didn't need to buy stuff to do the chalkboard look!
