Oh those Memory Box dies!

Have I told you how much I love Memory Box?  Oh, right, I have -- over and over again!   My Mojo just flows with these dies and here are two cards that I'll be doing at the Whitman Community Center in February.

I've adapted a technique that Dave Brethauer from Memory Box used.  It just so happens it answered a question that many of my students have been asking.  I've taught glitter and peel-offs in the past, but many have asked for a refresher course.  This sort of fits that niche, but it's got an easy twist to it.  I also have been driving myself nuts making little rosettes lately.  I can't seem to stop!  They're just so easy and fun to do and I can make them any size I want -- and there's no die involved!  Gotta love that!

So here's the two cards we'll be doing in February.  This butterfly is absolutely one gorgeous die (2 dies/separately priced), but I've discovered that this technique can be done by using only one die (money saver!!).  The other favorite die is Elegant Scrollwork.  I don't seem to run out of projects using this die -- it's a keeper!

Oh, and I think you'll see clear evidence of the Craft-Dee BowZ on one card (LOL!). 

Well, that's it for today.  Hope you enjoyed these cards!

Ciao for now!

Ciao Bella!

Is it sick to say the sympathy card is elegant?

How gorgeous! Both cards so unique - isn't it interesting what the two sayings convey together? Thanks for sharing your gorgeous cards! I NEED that die!

No, it is not sick to say a sympathy card is elegant. I like to keep my sympathy cards simple -- this was a little bit of a stretch because I added the little flower to it. So glad you liked it!

Oh my goodness! That never entered my mind! Sorta "live for today because you never know what tomorrow will bring..." I'm not sure if I'm embarrassed or if I made a happy (dichotic) mistake!!
