Today I want to share my doodling with you. I’ve found it’s a fun pastime and often I’m surprised at how well the doodling turns out. I had watched a fellow YouTuber doodle flowers and then make them into cards. I couldn’t find any flower stamps that would work but I did find Spellbinders in’spire Caged die, and it was a great size to divide into sections and doodle.
I’ll show you the step by step for the one on the left in the video plus I’ll share still photos of all the cards shown along with one extra one to give you

I’m back this week with another set of cards using Spellbinders Die D-Lites Create-a-Flower dies. This week I’m using the Lily dies to create two cards and three different colored lilies to give you some inspiration and ideas for your own flower garden of cards or embellishments.
You aren’t going to pop these flowers out in a minute or two, but the time you spend will be will worth it when you hold the finished product in your hands. They are so delightful to make. Once the petals and stamens are glued to the base you can really see the flower

Today I’m sharing two versions of the same card using Spellbinders Majestic Labels 1 and Spellbinders Shapeabilites Gold Corbels & Accents. By using my suggestions everything else can pretty much be grabbed from what you have on hand. That’s always a nice feeling isn’t it, using up our stash and stockpile, and yes, I know you have one just as I do!
This card is 6″x6″, a little larger than I normally make, but I wanted to have room for the center aperture to take the focal point. I cut the dies nestling one inside the other, all but the outer

Still have some Christmas cards to make? Perhaps you can do what I did here, take a focal point from your paper, I used Heartfelt Creations - Frosty Blanket Collection. Find part of the paper that draws you, in this instance it was this gorgeous door and then build your card on that. I actually have only two layers on the card base, the decorative paper and a brown mat. By taking the photo of the door, that’s printed on the decorative paper, you can expand your card to any degree of fussy.
I embellished with Martha Stewart’s Pine Branch Punch

Valentines Day is right around the corner and what a better way to celebrate than to make A Spellbinders Valentine Card. I have always had a hard time finding that perfect card to express my love and appreciation to those I love and so I thought,” why not make my own?” I have designed my card using the products that you can find on our Cut At Home website. I started with a warm brown color cardstock and cut it down to a 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 size sheet. I used Authentique 6×6 collection “Lovely” paper to add some color and character. I

Okay, so the “Men in Black” take off may not be the best way to describe Want2Scrap Silhouettes-Embellishments In Black, but they since silhouettes are usually classy and black and men in black suits are generally classy, you now can see where I made the connection. Well, maybe only if you think like I do (and I’m a little off today).
So, back to the Silhouettes….. These are GREAT! I really like using them. Reasons?
#1-they come pre-packaged so I don’t have to do the work of cutting them out and have more leftover scraps of black cardstock, nor do I have

I am so thrilled to introduce the Decorative Lace Border Die! It is a custom Heartfelt Creations Die manufactured by Spellbinders. This die coordinates with the Wedding Collection stamps. This die has more intricate details, so if you have a “loose” machine, you will have to cut a couple times. You will need to run it through your machine and cut once and then turn it 90 degrees and cut again.
I actually ran it 3-4 times through my Cuttlebug Machine then turned it before running it through 3-4 more times just to make sure! It is well worth the extra

I appreciate when customers email with questions concerning products that I can use on our Blog! One of our customers asked today for ideas using Spellbinders Borderabilities Dies. She also asked if she could use the 12″ Borderabilities Grand in her Cuttlebug Machine even though she did not have the Extended Cutting Mats.
Yes! You can use the 12″ Grand Dies with standard plates if you are just needing a portion for a card or something short! Just make sure that you don’t bend the die where it is hanging over the edge!
If you do have the extended plates, you can

Okay, so I have to share with you this incredibly fun idea that one of our local customers shared with me today! Using the Heartfelt Creations exclusive Spellbinders Die- Daisy Patch and her die cutting machine, she has made these adorable hair bows out of soda cans! Amazingly, the cans do not dull the dies and are not sharp once the shapes have been cut! Awesome!
Laura started her hair bow business only 3 weeks ago and her hair bows have literally blossomed on Facebook! She is a stay at home mom who also runs a daycare out of her home!

It is crunch time to get you gifts done for Mother’s Day if you haven’t already! Here’s an idea for a card box if your mom likes cards, but needs a place to store them, or you can fill the box with pre-made cards for her to use when needed! Of course I used roses, because that is what mom’s like! Right?
The paper I used for my tin box is the Rustic Paper Stack from DCWV ( It is an exclusive to JoAnn Stores), and the Shimmer Stack for the roses. To cut the roses I used QuicKutz Roses die.

The Easter Bunny arrived here at Cut@Home, but instead of eggs, he brought us shiny, sparkly Nestabling from Want2Scrap! This is what we have been waiting for since CHA! Choose from a large variety of color,and shapes in either Rhinestones or Pearls to coordinate with your Spellbinders Nestabilities! They are self adhesive, so you can just carefully pull the shape off the packaging and apply it to your coordinating die cut!
For example we have Nestabling Beaded Square BlackR to coordinate with Spellbinders Beaded Squares, Nestabling Classic HotPinkR that goes with Spellbinders Classic Diamonds, Nestabling Labels Nine GreenR with Labels Nine,

Today I want to show you the adorable new QuicKutz Whirlpool Alphabet! I have a weakness for swirls! The more swirly the better as far as I am concerned! This alphabet is so dang cute! You get 65 dies in upper and lower case letters, numbers and punctuation! The letters are approximately 1″ tall and come in strands held together with the tiny tabs that I mentioned yesterday with the Blue Sky Alphabet. This is the same with the new Carousel and Handmade Alphabets. I used my Cuttlebug with my extended 6 x 13″ Cutting Mats to cut a bunch
