The Epic Six

I got my Epic Six about a month ago when it was first released and I have to tell you - I LOVE IT! I was a bit skeptical when I first took it out of the box, but no more - it's fabulous!!

I did a short video demo to show you how it works and the types of things it will cut. I also wanted to mention that if you have been thinking about purchasing this tool, NOW IS THE TIME! If you order before August 31st you will get a rebate for a FREE 6" die from Quickutz!

So without further ado, here is the video...

When Life Gives You Limes...

Make Margaritas!!!

I just can't stop using the new 100 per/scent stamp set from Scent My Cards!!

For this card I used the Lemonade paper pack from Basic Grey and cut 1 1/2" squares from several of the papers. I then started in the center of the card and worked my way out in a quilt pattern.

I took a fine tip brown marker and created the look of stitching around each of the squares.

I finished it off with some Basic Grey Bling!

For the margarita glass I used the Quickutz adhesive backed vellum. I stamped my image and cut it out and then I ran it through my Epic Six with an embossing folder from Quickutz. The adhesive backed vellum is the most awesome product! I have always had issues with finding an adhesive that didn't show through the vellum, but this solves that problem! It also looks cool when it's embossed :)

Well that's it for today! Have a wonderful Friday!!

An American Crafts layout...

My two favorite products from American Crafts are Flair and Paper and this layout definitely has plenty of both!

This layout was completely inspired by the American Crafts paper that has kites all over it. it's from their Backyard collection and is called "Quack". I thought that it worked perfectly with the photos of my husband and daughter flying a kite!

My Supply List:

American Crafts Backyard Collection paper: Quack, Ribbit, Pop
American Crafts Craft Collection paper: Faye Needleworth
American Crafts Everyday Collection Paper: Howdy
American Crafts Flair: Fashion Flair Cool, Everyday Flair Smile
American Crafts Thickers - Vera font in taffy.
Basic Grey Bling (pink)
Papertrey Ink Hibiscus Burst Ribbon
Quickutz Silhouette was used to cut the sun.
Stampin' Up Ticket corner punch was used to do the corners on the journaling block. As soon as the new Corner Chomper is available I will be trading in my SU punch for it!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
