Hey everyone! I’m switching gears and focusing on something different from Close to My Heart while I wait for my next order to arrive.
This particular item came with last months’ order, but I haven’t set aside time to play with it until now. This is an item I’ve wanted for some time. It carried over to this catalog (Seasonal Expressions 1)- which blew me away. I thought I’d missed ordering it, but I didn’t! Phew! You still have time to order it, too. One month to go!
Introducing CTMH Thin Cuts Decorative Borders. Look at all that border-y goodness! The third one from the bottom- it’s a fringe. Hello! I’m super excited about it! The cross-stitch border is super cute, too. I used it in a layout that I made today. Have a look!
So, I’m incredibly thankful I hung on to my Sorbet card stock rather than selling it when it retired. This paper was made for layouts of my daughters’ bedroom. It coordinates so well!
Can you see the sweet little X pattern in the border just below the photos? That’s how the cross-stitch die looks after you’ve ran it through your die cutting machine. I’m looking forward to trying out the other ones! I’m loving the notebook border, fringed border, the scallops…really, all of them!
CTMH thin cuts works with a variety of die cutting and embossing machines. Try it with your Sizzix, Big Shotz, and Cuttlebug. They all work! Also, make sure you use the B and C plates, as well as the base plate if you’re using a Cuttlebug. Join me tomorrow and I’ll walk you through the steps to die cutting with our Thin Cuts using the Cuttlebug. There is a secret to it!
Watch for more projects using this tool, as well!
