partial die cutting photo tutorial

Today we have a super fun photo tutorial on partial die cutting to create a tag by Elena! Let's check it out!

She used the Critters on the Savanna stamp set and dies for this, but this idea works for any die!


This creates a small lion shape tag that opens for a special message.


Washi tape or even post-its or painter's tape would work to hold the die in place!


Adhere the colored and die cut lion on the tag, and you're done! So cute!!

Thank you so much for this photo tutorial, Elena. It is awesome!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! We have lots of fun family timed planned, and I am excited for that!

I just love the soft and pretty feel of this card by Yainea! She used mists along with our Summertime Charm set and So Much to Say. She also used Lime Lawn Trimmings around the jar which is so cute!

She created this for the Lawnscaping challenge. You guys should check it out! :)

a creative take on a Punky Sprouts mini album

We have an awesome treat today as we have a very creative use of a mini album by Elena! Our friends over at Punky Sprouts sent us some of their gorgeous mini albums, and Elena thought it would be fun to create some Easter treats! Check it out!

These are just too cute! I love how she used the Pink Lemonade papers and mini album pages to create these treat bags!

Some Dewey Decimal works great for Easter, too!

 Bannerific stamps and Lawn Cuts dies are perfect with the Happy Easter bunny!

 I love how she used Interlocking Backdrops to decorate her die cut!


I love the idea of using a mini album in a creative way, and Punky Sprout's are perfect for this because of their fun and different shapes!
Thanks for sharing these awesome treats, Elena!
