Getting more from your dies…

Hey there.

Just sharing a video I did awhile go for Hero Arts. In it, I show how to get more from your dies by letting the edge of the die hang off the cutting plates. Sounds confusing but it is simple…

Now you may be saying, “Use a longer die!” Well, I didn’t have one! :) And there are many ways you can do this “hang off the edge” technique to get more from your dies. Shaped cards, etc. Start playing – you will have fun with it. (If you took Holiday Card Boot Camp, you saw on Day 1 another use for this technique.)

Simple is sometimes the best way to go…

Here is the die I used…

Here is another option for creating a zig zag border – a fun EK Success punch. (Mine is currently MIA. Need to find it!)

Off to rest. Had Colin’s 6th birthday party today. I am wiped out. Night!


Oh, and I decided to do a random giveaway to a random comment left last week on my blog. :) The lucky winner is Betty M and she won this great stamp set from Hero Arts and Studio Calico…
