Thurs May 1st

penguin

so here is a cute penguin card…I don’t know why I’m still on snow!  But I’ve been playing with my new triple swing dies that I have been cutting.  I’m going to include some instructions today for how to place them.

so my whole piece of paper is cut at 12″ x 5.5″  You will have a little waste to cut off but I say better too much then too little because once it is cut off there is no putting it back on 🙂

On the left side there is a score at 4.25″  I then place the back straight piece of the die along the 6.5″ ; tape it down then cut it out.  That is really how easy it is!  You will notice once you fold it there is a little area to cut off!

For those of you interested…I did purchase the Brother Scan and Cut Machine.  I spent a total of about 30 minutes on it today and I have to say I’m impressed!  It basically takes the majority of your stamps and makes them into a die cut.  I will have some samples in the morning!

    Oh, I’ve been so tempted by that machine! I need to sell my Cricut cartridges first, though! 🙂 I love what the Brother one does and I think I’d use it so much more than the Cricut now that I’m doing more digital scrapbooking and I love fussy cut images, just not the tedious job some images create! You’ll have to keep us posted as to what you like about your new toy!!! 🙂
