Friday Die Day

 Hello friends
Wow Fridays come around really quickly! 
So what do I have for you this week..??
I'm visiting Edgeabilities® - the set I have chosen to showcase is Classic Scallop
 The way Edgeabilities work is that you receive one edger die template and two decorative inserts.
They measure 8" in length.
Here is the scallop edger with the scallop insert.  
You can see that I like to use removable tape to fit them snugly together 
and hold them securely in place.

This is how it looks cut/embossed.
This time with the circles decorative insert.
Cut/embossed - the embossing really shows.
This reminds me of lace.
And it wouldn't be Friday without a tag!
My parcel tag stamped with Newsprint stamp and inked the edges. 
I've then lined up my die cuts, leaving a gap between.
Added some pretty lace and trimmed the sides of the tag.
I then went down my 'odds and ends' drawer and discovered the snowflake that 
I had created some weeks back - the Create-A-Flake dies are so pretty and timely!
 Added twine and stamped a sentiment onto Labels Twenty-Two.
A close up - I did add a little bit of sparkle to the snowflake...well, it is nearly Christmas!
There are a selection of Edgeabilities in my Amazon Shop, so useful for all crafty projects,
as well as shaping your cards and adding an extra touch to envelopes.
Before I go - answering a question from yesterday, the papers I used to create the
Grand Peony Creations are Tim Holtz - Shabby Chic.
Have a lovely weekend dear friends.
Take care.

Love to see these dies Christine, i have all the edge dies and have never used them, i can see many gift tags on the pressies this year using them. Thanks.

Morning Christine, what a pretty tag. I actually have these dies too so great inspiration for me. Wouldn't have thought about using them like this with the pretty lace though.
Have a lovely day.

Morning Christine, I love this tag, I don't have any edgeabilities, but after seeing your tag, I will be putting on my Wish List. I have looked at them at shows, but couldn't work out how to use them, as some say 'inserts' and some say 'edges', I was confused ha ha.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Hi Christine. I just love Friday die day. I don't own any edgeabilities but they are on my ever growing list of must haves. The end result today is beautiful. Love the snowflake and the background - in fact love all of it.

Hi Christine

This is a lovely tag, so pretty as always. I also don't have any of the edgeabilities, but you're slowly changing my mind!
I also love the background stamp you've used, gives a lovely effect.

Hope you have a good day.

This is a gorgeous tag Christine - I love all the clean lines and am so glad you have focussed on the edgey dies - I have been struggling with them to be honest. You make it look so easy - I really mean to keep practising.

Hugs to you Sue Pxxx
