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;-(.
As I was wasting too much time on Pinterest yesterday, I so a pin that inspired me to make these mini pockets & tags. It was french bread in a translucent bag-so I grabbed my new MFT's treat pocket die and some vellum. It's not like I haven't seen little projects done like this before, but it was something about that pin that inspired me to do it. And now I think I need to buy a pillow box die-I really want to make little pillow boxes made from vellum. Don't you just love the way you can see a hint of what inside?!
Just sharing a few love cards I made last week and just found the time to post them. I ordered some new dies from Papertrey-the dotted hearts, arrows, and x/o's. I love them so. I have ordered so many new heart dies that I have been trying to play with-my desk is a mess of red & pink hearts!
***For those who have said that it is really hard to leave a comment, I have placed a ticket with typepad. I hope that they can figure out what is causing this issue. Sorry for the inconvenience. Thank you for the comments.
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...
OMG!! Happy 2014!! I am thrilled to start the New Year off with brand new (and awesome) products from My Favorite Things. MFT's is a huge favorite of mine-I use their dies over and over again for so many of my projects. I stalk the website every month waiting to see what's new-this month I am honored to be a guest designer. I am so excited to be able to share projects I made with the newest MFT's dies & stamps.
