Friday Die Day

Hello friends

This week it's a rather impromptu Friday Die Day or let's just say...rushed! 
Yes it was the heat, it has really hampered creativity. 

I've chosen to feature one of the Classics die sets - 
When I say 'Classics' these are actually new, they are a twist
on the original Nestabilities in that they have more detailed edging,
either dotted or scored.


Six dies in this set and the approximate measurements are:

First: 4.25 x 4.25 in. 10.80 x 10.80 cm
Second: 3.70 x 3.70 in. 9.40 x 9.40 cm
Third: 3.20 x 3.20 in. 8.10 x 8.10 cm
Fourth: 2.70 x 2.70 in. 6.90 x 6.90 cm
Fifth: 2.15 x 2.15 in. 5.50 x 5.50 cm
Sixth: 1.65 x 1.65 in. 4.20 x 4.20 cm

Instead of step photos I've put together a video,
it's quick, again big thanks to Elliott's editing skills, it's just one minute.
Just click below and it will take you to our Hope and Chances' Facebook 
page to view.
Sorry I cannot post direct here, the videos are a little bit too large for 
Blogger...apparently...by 12mb...double dutch to me! :)


I'm using a very simple technique of layering up strips of card 
(got to get through that scrap box eventually!)
and then die cutting the scallop circle shape.


Loving the dotted edge detail on these dies.

Rose Buds (also in the sale!)

On Hochanda today, the one day special is Spellbinders,
it is the new Sweet Christmas Collection designed by Sharyn Sowell.

 

  

We've taken early delivery of the designs being featured on telly
and you can view them on the website here.  
Isn't it wonderful for a moment to think of snow, ice and 
all things generally cold!  
Yep, the heat is definitely getting to me! 

Take care friends, what are you up to this weekend?
