I’m excited to share a sneak peek at some brand new dies from Suzanne Cannon. They’ll be shipping soon, so be sure to watch for them! I chose a flourish from Calligraphic Elements 3 and used all four word dies that come in the Brave/Bold set (Be, Brave, Bold, Yourself).
It’s such an easy project and quite versatile. Make several to send as cards, but be sure to make one to keep. Display it framed or propped on a desk, bulletin board or dresser so you won’t forget to stay true to yourself and embrace life to the fullest.
Hello! Diana here today with not just one but two cards to share with you using just one die. The initial setup takes a bit more time but it makes for two fun and shimmery cards. I chose to use the A Way With Words Happy Birthday die as my focal point. Sometimes you just don’t want to cover up the background too much, right?
Hi Artlets! It’s Suzanne here today with a sweet summer card guaranteed to cheer anyone up. What’s not to love about summer (if it’s not too hot for you)? Choose some happy paper that feels like the season and start creating!
Hello Crafty Friends,
This is Anita here with another inspiration from Susan’s Garden.
Nature is a blessing bestowed upon human life and proximity to nature brings solace to us. So keeping this in mind, I moved away from my usual style of flower making and have used the CountryScapes Mountains die set to create my card. There is sunshine in the valley and a sparkling snow-filled landscape.

Today’s project is a reusable sign to display on the table, mantel, or near the doorway at a birthday party! I picked bright, happy colors, but the color scheme is up to you. Go for school or team colors, a masculine or feminine palette, or something holiday-related. (If you pick shades of red, leave off the word ‘Birthday’ and use only ‘Party’ the sign is just right for Valentine’s Day and Christmas!) The optional easel folds flat for storage.
Hi Everyone, it’s Tina here today for the Die Cutting Team. Today I am going to show you how to create texture with your stencils. Below you will find instructions and photos so you can replicate the Follow Your Dreams card.
Hello, Diana here with another card sure to brighten the day for that garden-lover in your life. My mom has not only a green thumb but her whole hand is green! Seriously, she can stick a stalk in the ground and it will grow. She had many, many kinds of flowers in her garden but dahlias always bring her to mind. I’m pretty sure she would like this card even though I know she prefers live plants! Who would you send it to?
Hi Artlets! It’s Suzanne here today with a sweet card to remind someone special that you’re always with them, even when you’re apart.
To get the best look with your A Way With Words dies you want good contrast between the letters and the background. I thought it would be fun to use the ModaScrap Flower Lace 2 as a background with a different colour behind it, but that creates a far too complicated pattern and the words disappear. We need more contrast! There are a number of ways to work around this problem, but here is the one I chose.
Follow along with me to see how you can make this card!
Hello! Diana here with a Summer Fun card I made after the Scrapbook Expo in Chantilly. I had such a great time helping out at the ECD booth with the Silk Microfine Glitter demonstrations that I got some and continued to play with it once I got home. At the Expo, I also picked up the Slider and Spinner die set. Here’s my card combining the two. It’s been a while since I made a slider card and what I love about this die set is that there are four different shape slots you can make for the interactive feature instead of just the usual straight line. The A Way With Words Dies ‘Summer’ and ‘Fun’ dies are the perfect topping for this card.
