Cheryl bagged herself a bargain 'Tattered Lace' Top Hat die set from a Craft Declutter site last weekend, the lady was really prompt at posting and in fact Cheryl had the first hat mostly finished by Tuesday evening!! I think that these are stunning Cheryl, what perfect gifts for a Mum, Daughter or anyone really, I am guessing that if it's a Top Hat die it would make Men's top hats too! You have decorated both hats beautifully Cheryl, the pink one is Giorgina's and the Blue and Lilac one is for Cheryl's Mum, she is going to have a smile from ear to ear when she opens that box Cheryl. These are great for using all of the lovely ribbon and laces in your stash, that vintage looking lace on your Mum's hat is beautiful.
Thank you so much for sharing your creations with us XXX
Michele's Magazine Review
Here’s the delayed issue of Diecutting Essentials. There’s a lovely free gift this month it’s an interactive pop up slider Die,
Here’s some ideas of what’s inside the magazine.
Here’s the first feature using the free gift.
More ideas using the free gift, some of them are made using just the extra dies.
Even more inspiration using the free gift.
Dry embossing using nesting dies to create an impression great technique.
Heat embossed Diecutting produces such lovely cards.
I know we won’t all have these dies & stamps but I’m sure we have something similar & could adapt these ideas.
Gatefold cards made using coordinating dies & stamps. This makes a really impressive card
Some great ideas using hexagon dies
Ideas using large letters-you could use stamps or dies for these projects.
Diecut mono print-not something I’ve heard of before but it looks great.
More lovely ideas.
Some ideas using flower dies which I’m sure we all have!!
That’s all for this week so
Thank you so much Michele for another brilliant review, this edition is packed with amazing inspiration and some fantastic Techniques, I love the look of the 'Mono Print' technique so that will be going onto my 'to do' list. There are some fantastic ideas for using Nesting dies to create the focal point on your card rather than matting and layering. A great Hexagon feature too. Thank you so much for writing us another great review.
I hope that Phil makes it home on time and that you have a lovely weekend together XXX
