Friday Die Day!

Yes it's Friday and it's Die Day!
I apologise straight away that my photos are not so good, 
I actually put this together late last night and I was struggling with light.
I think my two shows went pretty well, I really enjoyed being back on C&C and thank you all for your support - so thrilled that one of my blog followers - Christine was picked out of the spotty cup!

Back to Die-Day - it's okay, your eyes are not deceiving you..yes it's snowflakes in Summer! 
Because I work months ahead I have been creating Christmas projects 
so I thought I would share something festive!
This is Create-A-Flake Three, you receive 5 die templates in all.
 This is how they look cut/embossed and stencilled. 
 And, looks so beautiful when cut with felt.
Here is one stacked in order (laying exactly on top of each other), 
much like the flowers - use foam pads between each one.
  I chose to stack this one 'off centre' using white felt and some pale blue star patterned paper.
I'm rather partial to these tags aren't I!
So something a little different, a little but rushed this week what with extra work and TV.
As usual, please email me any Friday Die Day requests.
Have a super day dear friends - I'm going to be unpacking my demo stuff and 
taking Bella on a nice long walk.

Hi Christine, you said the C word oh now I will have to start thinking about making Xmas cards. Loved your shows yesterday have also recorded them so I can pick up all hints and tips from the demos.

Had to work yesterday so gutted not to be glued to the box. Love the background to this piece - music score and the colours used are not traditional Xmas, which is great! Hugs, Buttons x

Hooray, I have got this die! I love all the snowflake dies but this is my fav and I used it last Christmas, but never thought to layer it up, it looks amazing, thank you Christine. Loved the shows, you are such a natural and you brought a bit of glamour to the proceedings - well done! A x

Hooray from me too, like Anne above I have also got these dies and used them a lot last year. Thanks for the inspiration today to use them differently.
Loved the shows yesterday, you are a natural on tv. Your boys must be so proud of their Mum.

Hi Christine, I really enjoyed your shows yesterday & will be giving the glue & seal a go as I love covering chipboard but have difficulty getting the edge to stick exactly.
These dies look fab. Have already started crafting for Xmas so will have to think hard about how to fit them in with my current design plan.

Hi Christine, watched both shows were great as always!
I don't celebrate Christmas, so normally wouldn't buy these dies. BUT, because you show them made up, I think they make a very pretty alternative flower! Thanks for die Fridays, cos they are so informative, and it's great to see them made up, so we get an idea what they look like..:)...Enjoy your

CraftyJo said...

Love the details in these snowflake dies, I've already started making the odd Christmas card, hate to be rushing them all at the last minute! Enjoyed your shows yesterday btw :)

Hi Christine, have only just found your blog so have now added to my favourites along with Sue Wilsons. Enjoyed the shows yesterday & have already taken some inspiration from you & made a book. Am really pleased with it thank you.

Hi Christine - I love your tags and this snowflake die is now on my 'must have' list.
Loved your shows yesterday - very inspirational...

Hi Christine, Love the tag and yes, I will forgive you for it being a Christmas one. Loved your C & C shows yesterday, and I did get all that ironing done too! Carolyn. x

Hi Christine,
well I thoroughly enjoyed your shows and your giggles with Leonie were very infectious, it made for a very fun show indeed. All your beautiful board books/journals looked wonderful and so much better when shown up close and personal. Not that there is anything wrong with your pictures but seeing them handled just gives them more life.
Thanks for the tips. Oh, I think Bella stole the show though, the picture of her with your son was the highlight I think!! lol! Hugs Linda

Hi Christine,
Really enjoyed your shows yesterday, the boys got me out of bed to watch them as I'm not well at the mo and we can't record them.
Love todays demo, I do have one of the snow flake sets but not this one, will have to add them to my list. Hope the weather is better where you are as It's been throwing it down here!
Have a great day

Great shows on Create and Craft and even had my email read out.Have had this die for a while but never inked through the die and this is why I love your Friday Die Days as you give us ideas that perhaps we had not thought of so keep up the good work
