the new nesting circle dies....

Wow, I cannot believe all the dies you get in the new nesting dies, like the circles, scallop circles, squares, and ovals ~ definitely worth the price which is unbelievable!!
I started playing with the circles today and you pretty much have every circle you need to make whatever you want!!  Since it's Winter ~ I made snowmen!!!  The candy box ornament was from a friend that I just reproduced with the circles ~ love it!!!

Quick & Easy gift idea

Here is an easy gift idea you can whip out in seconds with the help of Lifestyle Craft dies!!  Great idea for that workout enthusiast, sports fan or maybe the mailman.......
-Take a piece of 4x11 cardstock and score at 3", 6", 6 1/2", 9 1/2" and 10".
-cover the first 3" and between the 6 1/2" and 9 1/2" with pattern paper.
-using the circle cookie cutter dies, cut a circle out of the first 3" section large enough to slide over your bottle.
-using the scallop oval cookie cutter dies, cut an oval out of the other pattern paper piece to showcase goodies of choice.
-fold up the scored pocket and staple closed with goodies in a clear bag.
-decorate outside as desired.
(I used nesting scallop dies and snowflake dies)

One of the new Black Friday dies.....

In keeping with the "snowy weather", I thought I'd create a layout and in looking at the new Flourish Border die that was released on Black Friday, I thought what a great addition to the "snow" feeling I wanted.  This is another die I can see a whole lot of different looks/themes with.
(dies used: flourish border and Teriyaki Alphabet Font)

Die Transformation......

Take a Lifestyle Crafts die and change it up!!  Don't limit yourself to what the "package" says and see how many other looks you can get with one die.  Take the new 4x4 Reindeer die and instead of leaving him like the silhouette look, layer him, use scissors to cut out and viola, you now have a "Rudolph" die cut!!  Thanks to ScrapyLand for this awesome idea that I took and made my own:
