First I must thank Julia over at Stamping Ground for hostessing this super fun blog hop where you get to peek in at other crafters workdesks, all over the world! Follow the link to see and learn more. So, here is my desk this week:
I saw a tutorial on YouTube about making swinging panel cards with any Spellbinders/dies and your Cuttlebug, which I don't have. But I do have a BigShot so I figured a way to make her idea work for my machine, with some adjustments, of course. :) I have the edge cutting pieces from BigShot, you know the ones about 2" wide and 12" long? The clear thing in the picture below. So I scored my paper in half then one side got scored in half again, which is where my swinging panel would go. I placed my die in the center of the panel and in the center of the 2nd score mark, taped it down so it would wiggle and then placed my full size shim under the whole card and my 2" wide shim on the side of the die I wanted cut, right up to the fold/2nd score mark. Here is the result, with the die used and a smaller die cut piece of a solid blue already taped down:
Hope everyone is doing very well and enjoying the day or night, whichever it may be!
P.S. I have received a few fabulous ATC's and am planning a special post on them next week, when hopefully the ones I sent will also have been received...but we shall see! lol :)
