Photo Clippie Cube and Beautiful Butterflies Die

I'm sure there is better name for this! This is a really pretty photo holder that my convention roommate Mara made for a 3-d swap she was in. This is an extra she had.


I am thinking of making these for the 3-D swap at the SCS event this year.
I'm going to try to make one up for Valentine's Day using the Candy Lane papers and the Love You Much set from the new catalog. We had an opportunity to use these products along with the new heart to heart punch at Stamp club last week-end. I'll be posting those samples as soon as I can get David to take the pics with the good camera. The one I had been using is not working right for me :(

On the bright side, I got some of my NEW STUFF today- yeah!!
I think I am most excited about the new Butterfly die, I can't wait to use it. It is a sizzix die made exclusively for Stampin Up! Wanna see??

The die doesn't look like anything because it's hard to tell anything on the all black foam, but here is the index sheet that comes packages with the die... aren't they pretty?

The half butterflies are of course meant to be used with folded cardstock. You place the fold in the middle of the 1/2 butterfly so that when you cut it, it will open up to a full butterfly...like the pennant dies that were carried over from the last mini catalog.

There are even instruction on how to do it on the back of the index sheet:

Kind of hard to see on the scan, but I'm sure this will be very helpful to some people.

This die is part of Shelli's signature collection, and I was tickled to see her signature printed on the back of the die.

Tomorrow I plan to upload some projects I get made using my new stuff. Or at the very least, pictures of what results from my playing around with it.

See you then!
