NEW product test.... you'll love these!

This month I have had the privilege of playing with some amazing NEW products. The first designed by the talented Laina Lamb who is on the CK Dream Team with me.

3) Die-namics LLD Accent It - Story Title
3) Die-namics Western Star Border Duo


4) the Fiskars FUSE die cutting & embossing machine. 

Adapting the MFT's dies for the FUSE is a simple process. One can purchase the adapter plates to make the dies thick enough to go through the FUSE rollers.

This is my plate sequence:
1) Adapter base plate
2) Adapter Shim A
3) Rubber mat.
4) Adapter cutting Plate

As you can see from the tutorial above, you place your paper on the rubber mat, then the dies cutting edge down and the adapter cutting plate on top of the dies. Twist the handle a few times (which takes no effort at all) and your die cut elements pop out the other size.

Notice how clean the dies cut with great rounded corners.
Fabulous quality!

This is the page I created using these goodies together with the Down by The Shore collection from Fancy Pants Designs.

I encourage you to take a look at My Favorite Things online is chocca with great stamps & dies. Hope this inspired you to haul out your manual die-cutting machine... I love the insta vibe, no waiting just place & cut.

Happy Friday my creative friends!
