Happy New Year, Craft Friends!!! I hope you have had a wonderful holiday season, despite restrictions and whatever else might be going on in your part of the world. 2021 will start the same as 2020 left off, but I think we are all hopeful for how the year will play out.
All I know for sure is that I plan on being crafty! Maybe not as much as in 2020, but as much as I can! I look forward to going to crops again, crafting with friends... I've really missed that. Zoom craft days are OK but never quite the same as being in the same room.
It is the first Friday of the month so the gals from the Scrap 'n Stamp Design Team are here with our first Blog Hop of 2021! We have all been playing with the Slimline Die System from Picket Fence Studios. I have made slimline cards in the past, I'm talking many years ago, but they aren't always my favourite to create. The idea of them has taken off in the last several months and many of the big companies have come out with products that make the process (and measurements) a little easier. I will definitely try to make some more now that I have this great die set!
Please be sure to leave a comment on each stop on the hop (listed below) for your chance to win your own Picket Fence Slimline Die Cutting System from Scrap 'n Stamp Canada!!! In addition, place an order to celebrate the new year and use the code "finally 2021" for 21% off your regularly priced items!!
I paired this die set with some stamps and dies by My Favorite Things... and came up with this card....set to cut a piece of grey cardstock as a layer on the front. I was worried that I might need the longer plates for my Big Shot but I didn't. It just barely fit. Next time I'd probably use some purple tape and secure the die to the cardstock and cut it twice, flipping the piece around to start the second pass where the first pass ended, just to ensure I got a clean cut (I had to do a little surgery with a craft knife and ruler).
