Today I'm blogging over on the Simple Stories Blog with some tips and tricks on utilizing 3x4 (or 4x6) Sn@p! Sets cards for die cutting.
Whether you use a digital die cutting machine like the Silhouette Cameo or a manual die cutting machine, I've got some ideas on making the most of your Sn@p! products in non-traditional ways.
Digital die cutting completely changed the way I scrapbook and I can't imagine being without my Silhouette Cameo! And the icing on the cake? Why, the fact that Simple Stories now offers cut files in the Silhouette Store, of course!
I used the following cut files for my first project share today, a layout utilizing eight different designs!
I used some of the cut files "as is" and some files I altered to fit my layout needs.
I'll show you how in the accompanying video.
I used the polaroid die cuts to "frame up" my page, with a title and journaling in the center of my layout. By layering the die cut polaroids with Sn@p! 3x4 Cards, I was able to create a cohesive page with simple layers and lots of color.
For my card, I used a metal balloon die in a manual die cutting machine (the Sizzix Big Shot) to die cut balloon shapes from the Birthday 3x4 Sn@p! cards.
Adding detail to the die cuts with Glossy Accents, a glitter marker and string make these die cuts a cut above the rest! ;)
*I will be update links both here and in the description on youtube when the Simple Storie DIY & DIY Boutique products are available.
As always, I appreciate you spending some time with me. :)
