Hi everyone. As some of you already know I have been taking a bit of time off recently from teaching but all being well I will be back teaching at The Glitter Pot next month. I have added a new page to my blog where you can find out where I'll be teaching and demoing. Haven't loaded up too much as yet but you can click here to see or simply click on Classes/Demos under my header. As from now my classes will be limited to a maximum of 6 people at The Glitter Pot which I hope will benefit everyone more so if anyone fancies booking on it'll be great to see you!
Grand Calibur die-cutting machine. Haven't really 'played around with it too much yet but here is one of the cards that I did create with it towards the end of last year in order to try it out! I must say that I was REALLY pleased with the machine as it cut through the two layers (A4 folded in half) really easily and enabled me to make this shaped card using the Grand Labels 1 Nestabilities die.
Now the Grand Calibur only takes thin metal dies but I did find that with a little bit of trial and error that I was able to emboss my Daisy Pattern with it too by using one of my plates from my Cuttlebug along with the Grand Calibur plates. This means that I am able now able to emboss far bigger panels of cardstock which I was very pleased with!
Aspects of Design No.58 Fancy Flourishes) for the base panel and used the Daisy Pattern embossing folder for the top panel. The wording was also from my Fancy Flourishes stamp sheet.
