From Els at Elizabeth Craft Designs . . .
How cool are these pieces of jewelry made from Shimmer Sheetz? I can't wait to find out how Els made these!
This is a draft of a new peel-off design that Els is making for Elizabeth Craft Designs.
I can't wait to see what Els has been working on 'in person' at CHA next month.
From Dave Brethauer at Memory Box . . .
If I could pick one die that was our most popular design of the year, I would have to say that it was the Flowering Christmas tree. Since we released it July 1, 2011, we have sold this die more than any other in our collection (it is in stores in 21 countries!). My goal when I began designing dies this year was to create die cuts that would change the way people used dies - to make the designs as intricate and artistic as possible. This die really stood out and has been our go-to design when making samples and classes for the past 6 months. I created a video that shows a some ideas and tips using the die - enjoy!
I simply cut out two trees - one with red cardstock and one with green cardstock - then used scissors to cut out the red flowers to be glued onto the green tree.
