Three Ways To Achieve Fussy Cutting Without the Fuss. Using MFT Double The Fun Stamps.

Hi There Crafty Friends, I hope your all staying well.  If like me, your not a fan of fussy cutting. I've come up with a few, ways of cheating, winging it, what ever you like to call it.  Let me explain. When images of animals contain tails, ears , or feet. It can be impossible to fussy cut them.

Partial die-cut heat embossed border card - Pink Fresh Studio - Leafy Decor

Hello there, it is Verity here from Pretty Little Button for the Bumbleberry Design team. So who says leaves have to be green?!

A Very Quick, Die Cut Card Made With A Monochromatic Theme. Bringing inks,cardstock and patterned paper together.

Hi There, Crafty friends This week I've been looking at how I store my Inks, Cardstock and Papers. I realized they were, not near each other and I had been over looking how they all work together. Brands bring out ranges, so we use them to coordinate.(Something I failed to remember) But when we have lots of different materials around us we forget to pull them out together. So operation company re-organisation was put in to practice.   Cardstock and Pattered Papers      This Is Lawn Fawn Cilantro Cardstock, I then went through my pattered papers, from Lawn Fawn...
