Good Saturday Morning Ladies,
First up today I wanted to share the other project I made for that Banner die I was sent, both Danielle and I tried to think 'outside of the box' and come up with different idea for the die other than Banners/bunting.
I decided to make a little Keyholder, I used the last of the beautiful Shabby Chic papers that I had left over from my swap with Kay, adhered the paper to a piece of thin chipboard, used my new 'Crop-O-Dile to add some eyelets, which makes such a huge difference, it looks so much neater makes it easier to pull the ribbon through too.
To decorate I die cut a large 'H' out if chipboard and the rest of 'Home' out if Kraft card and matted them onto a tag die cut, I stamped the word 'Welcome' onto another flag die cut, I made a dangle charm using some 'Lock &Key' charms and some ribbon and beaded trim, I attached a Seam Binding bow to the charm and attached a jump ring to fix it to the Library clip on the top of the Hanger, I thought that would be a good place to hang your keys from.
Just a novelty decorative item but its fun and gives another element to the die.
Michele came up with the idea of having a more 'in depth' look at one magazine each week, rather than having little comments on lots of magazines, which I think is a great idea. Today is the first of those, featuring the 'Papercraft Essentials' magazine and its free gifts......
Michele's In Depth Magazine Review (No.1)
Fist magazine to be reviewed in depth is Papercraft Essentials which comes with this fantastic Cut & Emboss Folder plus stamps.
Inside there’s a 3 page feature showcasing Circle Dies which definitely makes you think about using them more.
Also there’s a 4 page article on Faux tie-dye backgrounds which looks great.
More ideas, simple but lovely ideas.
Third feature using the free gifts.
I think this issue has a really versatile and great quality free gift .
Next review the following Saturday-Diecutting Essentials.
Thank you so much Michele for a fantastic in depth review, its great to see all of the features as it makes it easier to decide if this magazine is something we would find useful.
I hope that you all have a lovely weekend,
Love and Hugs to all,
