A little sneak peak...
I managed to get a few of the new dies before they were released and got to work making a card right away! The black lacy frame is a new die set called Fancy Weave and the butterfly (solid and lacy) are from a set called Les Papillions. Both dies are quite intricate so I used waxed paper when I cut them. If you don't know the wax paper trick - take a piece of wax paper, like you use in the kitchen, and make your regular Cuttlebug, Big Shot or Grand Caliber sandwich but place the die on the wax paper then the cardstock then run the die through. If you can leave the wax paper in the die (some dies don't hold the wax paper and that is OK just use a new piece each time you cut. After a while the die may not need wax paper).
Hope everyone is having a great loooong weekend! Thanks to all those teachers out there who do not have a long weekend because they are setting up their classrooms! :)
