Ahhhhh....my last Friday alone until the new school year starts!
Today is also challenge day over at CSAYL and this week the challenge is "To Die For". Use a die cut as your main image. It can be from a Sizzix, a piece of chipboard, pre-printed ones....whatever makes you happy! I recently picked up a scrapbook page kit that came with the most adorable holiday die cuts by My Minds Eye.
I love me some die cuts, especially cute matchy-matchy ones like these. Add some jewels, a couple of glitter swirly things and 10 minutes later you've got a card. The only thing I hate about pre-printed die cuts are those little paper nubby things that stay attached after you've punched it out.
You know what I mean...
Seriously....they make me crazy, and I can never quite get them off with scissors.
When I put this card together yesterday, I decided to try a little something, and what do you know? It worked like a charm!
I have a sanding block that looks like a jumbo nail file. It was one of those free gift thingys that got put in a drawer and never used. I unwrapped it, and gently went around the edges a couple of times.
Bye-bye paper nubbys!
Ok kids, that's it for me today. I can't let my last Friday of freedom go to waste! Hop on over to the CSAYL challenge blog and give our "to die for" challenge a go!
