A Fancy Fold, you will want to try!

Hey there Friends!

Is it too early to think about Christmas layouts? I think not! 
The Comfort and Joy paper collection is beautiful! In person it is GORGEOUS! I have paired some New England Ivy, Glaicer and Candy Apple Red cardstock with the pattern paper to create this stunning layout. 
Check out the little cluster of gems at the bottom with the cut out trees from the versatile Comfort & Joy - Cardmaking stamp + thin cut set. 
 
This weeks class in my DanYellScraps & Friends Group on facebook, we learned how to create this Fancy Fold layout! 


If you love this layout, and want to join my crafty classes on Wednesday nights through October, I'd love to have you! My Classes are FREE and for my amazing customers and Friends.

Why I Love Card sets!

Hey There! 

Welcome to my page! Today I am sharing an adorable card holder for a set of cards. 
Do you make, give or receive card sets? I love card sets as a gift so many reasons; they are handmade, they can be personalized, they can be made ahead of time, they can be given as a gift. 


This adorable holder is chunky and bulky! It holds three handmade cards. Ready to keep or gift! 


The front of the holder shows off the cut wishing you everything thin cut set. The balloons, banner and sentiment are stamped in intense black ink. The balloons are colored in with the amazing Tri-Blend markers. 
 

This Chunky, bulky card holder was taught this week in my DanYellScraps VIP Group on facebook. My group is open to non-CTMH consultants and USA residents. :) 

Thank you for stopping by!

3 Thincuts Every Crafter Should Own

Hey there! 

Welcome to my page! This week I want to talk to you about 3 ThinCut dies that are a must have in every crafters stash. 

#1

A sentiment die with a base layer! Layers can make or break a layout or card. When you are able to shadow your sentiment, it stands out and really brings the attention the theme of the occasion. For example CTMH has a Thincut "Thanks" that comes with two dies. You can see in my example, I have made the sentiment pop against the rainbow of colors using neutral cardstock. 

#2

Nesting dies. A set of nesting dies is create to create dimension easily with a monochromatic or rainbow color theme. When you nest the dies together, add a bit of washi tape behind them. Cut all layers at once several times in as many colors as you have layers that will cut. For example below I used the Square ThinCuts, because it gave me 6 frames, I choose 6 colors. 



#3

Shaped Thincuts - shaped thin cuts offer more than just their shape. Use the star shaker cut window Thin Cut set to create a cute chevron design. Cut 2 or more colors several times. Cut the triangles off the stars and nest them together. You can also do this with the square or rectangle Thin Cuts. 





Thank you so much for stopping by!  I hope I have given you lots of inspiration and additional ways to use your Thin Cuts from CTMH. 

Want more inspiration? Join my VIP Group DanYellScraps on facebook, for FREE Classes each week. 
Open to non-CTMH consultants and residents of the U.S.A. 

Danielle!
