Under The Sea Shaker Card

Hi and welcome, everyone! Today I'm over on the Craftin Desert Divas Blog for Tuesday's Craft Tips/Tutorials. I have a fun project to share using partial die-cutting and a shaker card showcasing the adorable Under The Sea Stamp and Die Bundle.

Who says the top of the card has to be straight? Not me!

Let's get this party started! 
1.Using the Stitched In Circle Die cut the largest scalloped circle.
2. Using the smallest scalloped Stitched In Circle Die center and lightly make a few marks around the outer edge, move die-cut to the side for now.

 3. Decide how you want to arrange the die-cuts. Easy so far, right?

This is where it gets interesting. 
4. Position the edge of the die slightly over your pencil mark.
5. Place top cutting plate over the die and line it up with pencil mark and run through the machine. 
Remember you don't want to cut the whole die.

That was the hard part. 
6. Now you have to die cut the smallest scalloped Stitched In Circle Die to create the frame.
This is very important, be sure the die is UNDER the partial cuts or you will cut through them. 
All that work for nothing, what?

Do You Know Pet Parents?

Hi and welcome, everyone. Today I'm over on the SVG Attic Blog sharing a few ways to present Pet gifts. I think often times we forget that some people consider their pets to be their children, especially, couples who can't have children. And how sad is it that we don't acknowledge their fur babies. I was one of those people, and I say let's give "Pet Parents" and their babies some love, too! So here are a few ideas next time you want to give a Pet gift.
With just a few SVG Attic Files you will be passing out these cute Pet gifts yourself.
I created the Fire Hydrant Treat Box using the JGW Little Fire Chief Kit, the gift card holder using the SVGA Holiday Cheer Gift Boxes, and the card using the paw print from SVGA Jack's Tracks. One of the best things about all the Kits listed, they can be used for multiple projects. The Little Fire Chief Kit makes for an awesome birthday party or load that fire hydrant up with homemade cookies for your local fir…
