Memory Box Dies - HOT, HOT, HOT!!
I wanted to share some projects with you that I made with a new Memory Box Die. If you haven't heard of these dies yet - you have to check them out. They are the HOTTEST thing we've seen hit the paper crafting world in a long time! We can hardly keep them on the shelves - and there are a LOT of these little guys!
I was hanging out with my fellow crafty SGD divas last week - and we were discussing these strip dies - and what exactly to do with them. The package shows a nice pattern, all in a row. But when you use the die, you see that all the little pieces actually pop out. And they are pretty small.
So I took one home to play with - and here's what I discovered! They are meant to be used in REVERSE! Nope, I haven't been sniffing too much glue or too many Copics (well, maybe, but that's a story for another day).
These strip dies punch out a beautiful pattern from a paper - that you can then overlay onto another paper!
OR - as above - you can use it as your own mask! Another super hot commodity in the store lately has been the range of masks - especially the ones that come from Mister Huey - totally off topic - but check out this one - omg - LOVE!!
So here is another card I've made with the same Memory Box Strip Die.
You might notice I've used a couple of other super HOT lines on these cards:
Tim Holtz Limited Edition Summer 2012 Ink
Bo Bunny Country Garden Collection
By the way - Memory Box also make GORGEOUS stamps. I've used this one on my first card above.
SO much fun!! Take a moment to check out all the other Memory Box Dies!
