Queen Mary said...

I completely agree with Angela! I LOVE all things postage stamp-y, I LOVE these, I LOVE your scrapbook page and I can't wait for CHA to be over so I can buy these! And I will ALWAYS put the cut side up and I like the hint about placing, taping, and turning! Excellent tip!

Pam said...

OMG! These just shot to te top of my wish list! Love your card & envelope. I just have to have these...soon...very soon.

Rox-Ann said...

Super project love the postage stamp layout E looks so cute. Great video and I love the card

Diana said...

Instead of arranging the die face down on the base plate and then turning the paper and the die over, why not just arrange everything face down on the cutting plate, layer the base plate, and then turn the plate sandwich over to run through the machine? I'm not even sure you need to turn the sandwich over, but I'd have to look back at the manual. Anyway, your project is smashing and very clever!

Davi said...

Very pretty envelope and card. Great LO. Love the new dies.

Vicki said...
