I am a little behind with my blogging lately. Life is busy and with Josh studying on the computer a lot at the moment with the HSC I have had little access to the computer. BUT I am here now. Just squeezing in a little time while he is still in bed!
By now you would have known about the wonderful new products released just this past week. I thought I would show you what I have been doing with them.
Firstly, have you seen the new Thinlets Card dies??? These make fun, interactive cards in no time. Check them out.
These come in the Labels shape or the circle and come with lots of other fun bits to add to your cards. They are $55.95. I had a chance to play with Leonie’s circle thinlets the other day as I am still waiting on mine to arrive. (Thank you Leonie). Here is a fun, birthday card to create.
I have used the set ‘Sketched Birthday’ and the paper is from ‘Birthday Basics’. This is really a great pack of paper. I think it gets lost in the catalogue. Leonie kindly gave me a piece. (Thanks again Leonie!!!). You are a star 🙂
I think it was the 1 3/4″ circle punch I used to punch the circle in Summer Starfruit card and the Whisper White scallop circle is the 1 3/4″ scallop circle. I added a little bling to this too.
Now on to the Envelope Punch Board. I have been having so much fun with this new little gadget. You MUST have one of these. Not only does it cut up to 66 different size envelopes BUT there are so many other fun boxes and projects you can do with it PLUS it has a corner rounder punch on it if you need one for any of your projects.
Here are some little treat pouches I have been making with them.
Made with the ‘Sweater Weather DSP’ and ‘Label Love’ stamp set. I added a little Burlap Ribbon. Add a little treat and this might be a good one for the men in your life???
How about a Christmas one with the ‘Season of Style’ DSP.
The label is from ‘Chalk Talk’ and stamped in Gumball Green. The ornament is one from the ‘Best of Christmas’ sets and stamped in Cherry Cobbler. You could add ribbon and hang these in the Christmas tree with a special Christmas treat. These are the right size to hold a Gift card. If you want to make one you can use the Gift card size shown on the Envelope Punch Board. The original idea came from Angie over at Chic N Scratch here.
Here is a little sneak of another project I created using the Envelope Punch Board. If you are on my Facebook Business page you would have already seen it. (BTW: You can click on the link in the right hand column and ‘LIKE’ my page to see my projects I show there). I will show you the rest of this project in the new few days.
So I hope you grab yourself the Thinlets Cards Dies AND the Envelope Punch Board. I can tell you they are essential 😉
Have a good day however you spend it.
