July 6th!!

Mark your calendars!  The LARGE platform on this die cut/embossing machine is the bomb.  Do I large cut or several small cuts.  You can get more done and done easier with the electric feed.

For my last project with the Crafter Companion team, I created this little book.  It can be anything you want it to be.  It measures 5 1/4 x 4″.  Maybe a grandmas’ brag book?  It could be a note book if you add white lined papers attached with repositional adhesive.

I did not have any regular chipboard, so I used this thick backer board.  I knew the machine would not actually cut through (this stuff is VERY thick… but what it did was emboss the image deep into the chipboard.  I was so happy with the result.  I cut a piece of chipboard for both front and back.  Patterned paper was adhered to the front, inside front, inside back and back cover.

The inside is made of 4 3/4″ x 7 1/2″- scored in half.  I did several.  They are simply glued back to back.

The circles hide magnets that are 1/2″ round by 1/16th inch thick.  They are super strong.

My farewell to the Crafters Companion team is bittersweet.  I enjoyed working with the team, but I am looking for that these next few months have in store for me!
