Tuesday Tip/Technique

Hello friends

This week's TTT is about looking at dies in different ways.
For example let's take a look at hearts - Classic Scalloped Hearts.
They are pretty but are they just hearts??
Whenever I receive a new die set I run them through the Grand Calibur with 
a piece of copy paper, the die cuts always look different to the dies 
and it can often spark off a creative idea.

How about clustering the hearts to look like a flower?
You could use the edge of the hearts to create a scalloped border
as detailed here on this memo peg wallet.
This complete project just uses one die set - Scalloped Hearts.
It certainly adds versatility and value to your dies.

Not long now until Santa visits and just in case I do not get the chance to blog  
over the festive period, I want to send out this message to you all....
You are all such wonderful friends and I truly appreciate you stopping by my blog each day.
2015 promises to be a busy creative year and I am really excited about travelling
and hopefully getting the chance to meet lots of you in person.

The most important member of staff donned a Christmas hat too!
Now to the important stuff - time to open the Quality Street and sherry!
Take care friends.

Hi Christine. Love the heart peg set, the border idea is great, another idea to remember.
Thank you so much for all of the fabulous cards, projects and inspiration over this last year.
You will all be able to enjoy this Christmas so much more than last year won't you. Wishing you, Mitchell, Elliott, your Mum and Dad and of course Bella a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. May 2015 be the best yet. I do hope that you will be coming to the Oxford/Swindon area so that we can get to meet : )) Enjoy the sherry and Quality Street. Take care.

Merry Christmas to you too Christine, and the boys, your family and Bella and the Kitty's. I hope you all have a wonderful time and thank you for all your great tips and inspiration, I enjoy reading your blog throughout the year and feel honoured that you have shared your very emotional journey with us all, and hope that Elliott stays well, he is truly a remarkable young man. Enjoy your Sherry, I always have a Snowball on Christmas morning, it's a bit of a tradition, I don't drink it any other time of the year. Have lots of fun.

Hi Christine
Another great idea to store away In our archive. Love the heart pegs and I must try to remember that you can use borders. Love Bella in her christmas hat. I do hope that you have a fabulous 2015, and I do hope that your coming to the Oxford/Swindon area next year.

AnneRD said...

Hi Christine. It's good to be shown the versatility of dies, it's often difficult to see beyond the sample die cut unless you play with the shapes. Lovely project too. Super picture of Bella, cute as ever! Anne x

Claire said...

Lesley Thomas said...

Good morning Christine, I've just got my veggies, fruit and turkey, so I am done ! All I need to do is prepare veggies, and a bit of tidying and that will be that.

I hope your preparations are going well, Bella looks great in her hat too.

Patricia Howarth said...

Hi Christine, I would love to wish all the Emberson household a very Happy Christmas and Best Wishes for 2015.
Great ideas and tips today, I will certainly look at my dies in a different light from now on !! When I eventually get my new glasses that is !! I got a phone call to let me know not to come in today for them as there has been a problem with shipping, and now I may not get them until January, as as my eyes are really uncomfortable at the moment, I wasn't best pleased haha.
Bella looks absolutely gorgeous in her Christmas hat.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

utilitygirl said...

Hope you have a wonderful Christmas with your family - Bella looks very festive in her Santa hat!!
