Hi Fellow Project Lifers!
Today I am working backwards a bit and showing you my week 24. This week I had a bunch of fun playing with some brand new dies from Die-Namites! You have seen in previous posts that I am very fond of my silhouette die cutting machine, but the one thing I find that I have a hard time with is getting really good intricate cuts from the machine. Thats why these dies rock! There is so much detail that brings a little wow to your project life without bulk. To cut my dies I use an Epic 6 by lifestyle crafts, but any manual die cut machine will work.
Here is the full two page spread:
And one of just the left hand side:
For my title card I used the Die-Namite’s Scrolly bird design. I originally cut it from a heavy white cardstock and then colored it with a light blue copic marker. I took a piece of cream cardstock and attached various strips of washi tape. I fussy cut the different pieces of washi to fill in the different parts of the bird. It really helped the die cut pop and didn’t add any additional bulk to my pocket. I LOVED the result.
I used two different Die-Namites dies for this section. The first was the Floral Corner die. I cut two of these corners out of heavy watercolor paper and then played with some greens and pink watercolors. I put the two together to make a little frame around the title. The watercolors add a little more than just coloring with a marker or cutting from cardstock.
The second die in the last pocket was the Flowering Tree die. I cut this from heavy white cardstock and colored in with copic markers. I added red enamel dots on the tree to mimic apples. I thought this was fitting being next to Snow White. Cutting off the very edge of the die makes the section of the layout flow a bit better.
My oldest daughter had a wonderful opportunity present itself, to be a disney princess for a local production company, these photos of her are her trying on the different costumes.
