Today I want to share some Valentines featuring doilies and Sweet Sentiments papers by Graphic 45. I’ve mentioned on previous posts that I like to use doilies with my cards, especially Valentines. When I saw the beautiful Sweet Sentiments papers, I knew that the two were made for each other. The paper is so pretty, and the colors are so delicate and distinctive. There are just so many possibilities!
I used the 8×8 Sweet Sentiments paper pad for my cards (it is also available in 12×12). As usual, Graphic 45 provides many unique/beautiful elements that can be used to enhance cards. The cards that you

Today my project is a mini-album featuring papers from Mother Goose by Graphic 45. This paper is so fun, and makes a perfect baby mini-album. The colors are very vibrant, and in the 8×8 paper pad there are journaling cards, borders, stamps of various sizes, and other depictions of Mother Goose characters. There are also chipboard stickers and stamps, etc. in the collection if you’re interested.
If you have the right tools and inspiration, mini-albums are actually pretty quick and easy. It is best to start with a good die set to cut your pages. For this project, I chose

Happy New Year, everyone! I can’t believe that 2013 is coming to a close – the year seemed to go by very fast. I’m also excited about the promise of a new year – I hope that 2014 is the best ever for all of us!
I have a couple of simple projects to share with you today. The first is a cupcake wrapper. This is a Lifestyle Crafts die (formerly Quickutz), and is just too much fun! The wrapper piece has the “Happy New Year” at the top, and you only need to add the numbers for the year and the stars

Only 15 days to get those cards and projects done for your Valentines, so I am trying to get prepared and have created this little Valentine Treat Tin and Pocket Tag!
The tin was acutally a Christmas tin that I got from a catalog (I think it was Collections Etc.) a couple years ago. It had a gingerbread man on the lid, so I covered it up, and now you can’t even tell it was once for Christmas! I pulled out my trusty Sizzix Big Shot machine and went to work with some of my new Quickutz dies from Lifestyle Crafts.

Today I have some great products to show you that we saw at the Lifestyle Crafts/Quickutz CHA booth! Not only do they have great dies for scrapbooking layouts and cards, but for alternative projects like what you see on the board below.

If punches strike your fancy, then here is a preview of their new punches being released!
If you thought that was cool, then you will love these new dies that are being released throughout the next few months! I have a doily fetish, so I

Cut multiple shapes at once with fun Quickutz Punches! These punches are unlike most punches where you can only punch one shape at a time. You can easily cut multiple shapes at once with one pass through your die cutting machine!
Quickutz Punches are Cookie Cutter dies which means they are trimmed to just around the cutting edge of each die. They are wafer thin and will use the same sandwich formula as the smaller Quickutz dies, however, you may need extended plates if you only have standard plates, as these dies are similar in length to Border Dies.

There are a variety of border dies on the market, but the Quickutz Cookie Cutter Border Dies by Lifestyle Crafts are rather unique. First of all, they are NOT for use to cut cookie dough, so don’t even try! Cookie Cutter is just the type of die, so named because the die is shaped around the cutting edge like a cookie cutter. Please don’t get them confused! Some Cookie Cutter dies have more substance than others. The dies I demonstrated in the following video from the Pool Party Collection are only an outline of the shape. Very simple. See HERE

Okay, so now that we have received these wonderful new Die Cutting Machines for Christmas, do we have the right tools that will enable us to use them to their best capacity? I’m not talking dies or image cards, because we all know that we have to have those. I’m talking about the tools that will enable us to pick up and place tiny images once they are cut out, or scrap them off of our cutting mat without tearing them up!
