I hope you had a wonderful time on 11/11/11 celebrating our Veterans and joining in on the Blog Hop! What an amazing journey checking out all the wonderful cards! :) A special thank you to Operation Write Home for organizing the hop!
During the Hop, I was actually in Seattle, at the Creating Keepsakes Convention. Imagine my surprise when many people came up to me asking when we released our Framelits dies. ;)
I guess I was just a little surprised that everyone didn't know about them! :) They seem to be my 'go to' dies lately! Why? Because you can see exactly where you are cutting, so they are GREAT with stamps!
Here's a small sampling of the Framelits...
Here's a great project by Cara that shows off using the scalloped circle Framelits.
Cut a Lunch Bag out of patterned paper using the eclips machine and Albums, Bags & Boxes Cartridge. Fold along score lines of the Box and assemble. Cut a piece of cardstock to fit across the bottom of the Bag, stamp with a sentiment and adhere in place. Die-cut a border of your choice from cardstock, trim away excess and adhere along the base of the bag. Die-cut Scallop Circles from a variety of color-coordinated cardstock. Stack the Scallop Circles for an amazing 3-D effect and adhere in place to form a flower. Embellish flower center with a button and string. Cut a length of ribbon to form the stem and adhere to the Bag. Place treats in Bag and secure closed with a ribbon bow.
Other Supplies: Button, Cardstock, Ink, Patterned Paper, Ribbon, Stamp, String
