I want to share with you again this week my creative space which is my craft table!
The first thing I was working on was trying out a new Sizzix die which I recently purchased.
It's called Tattered Florals and it's from the Tim Holtz collection.
What I love about these dies are that you can cut not only paper but fabric and felt, too!
How fun it is to create your own felt flowers!
There are several flower shapes on the die, which I cut out of both felt and fabric and layered together with a brad.
Last year I picked up several sheets of this really cute Valentine paper by BoBunny but didn't get around to using it. So, I pulled it out today to start creating a mini scrapbook with it.
To create my scrapbook I am going to bind it using a really cool tool called, the Cinch. The Cinch, is a book binder that punches and uses book wire to create a professional looking book!
We carried this tool in the scrapbook store. I thought it looked really nice, but didn't take the time to learn how it worked, until one weekend when I was working our traveling store at a scrapbook retreat.
I was always the "demo girl" as I was very patient with the customers. Mostly I taught people how to do inking techniques with our popular Tim Holtz products. When I found out I was expected to teach how to use the new Cinch Book Binder to hundreds of ladies I was scared! But by the end of that day I knew I was going to have to get one for myself!
I am looking forward to this project and will share lots of photos of it here as I go along!
I wish you all a wonderful Friday, Lindsey
