Did you know you can create a folded (double) die cut from regular dies? Well, you can and it’s as easy as can be.

First cut a piece of paper (preferably cardstock) double the size of the die. Double either the length or the width depending on how you want to fold.

Second, place the folded paper on the die so that the fold lies just within the cutting edge of the shape. Keep in mind that every bit of paper outside of the die blades gets cut, so it is super important to keep the fold within the die’s cutting edge.

Third, cut the die as normal, and voila… you will have a double, folded image of your die shape!

This is a great way to make shaped cards or stand up shapes (by placing the fold at the bottom). folded_die_cut_book_mbottom_fold_die_cuts_m

Whoo Hoo!  After so many requests, I’ve decided to teach an October card class.  You will absolutely love the four new designs that I’ve come up.  They are so, so cute!  With Halloween just around the corner, I’ve decided to include two Halloween Cards.  And, since we all need an early start with our holiday card making, I have also included two Christmas cards.   Last year, my holiday card class was very popular and both classes sold out.  Call up SGT to secure your spot asap.  Hope to see you in class.

I’m leaving tomorrow for a week of R&R. Of course, I just *have* to take something scrappy to work on while I’m gone. I wanted to share my plan with ya’ll because who knows? It might be helpful to someone out there.

I have me a nicely packed 12 x 12 handled case with card making goodies galore. It has mini alpha and sentiment stamps,  a few inks, small dimensional stickers, scrap paper, left over die cuts, a book of card sentiments, some pens and other supplies for making cards. You get the idea. I even have some unassembled card kits in the mix.

What is cool about the box is that it was already packed up from my last trip and it is going to stay packed for anytime I have to “run” out the door and want to take small no-brainer, stress-free crafting with me. I *love* having this box ready to go whenever I am!
