Thinking of You

This is my post on the
Dies R Us blog today.

Hi there!

Today I had fun using all scraps from my scrap bags
and a couple of fun dies from the Dies R Us store!

I cut three 4 1/4" square white card bases and added a 
pretty and very detailed butterfly to each using
and a few colorful scrap designer papers and card stocks.
Now this die is called small, but it is pretty good sized,
as you can see.

Also a little hint to cut such intricate and detailed dies,
is to use a piece of wax paper in-between the die and papers.
I also always use a shim with mine, but that totally depends
on 'your' machine.

I added a sentiment to Cheery Lynn Designs Horizons Fishtail Banners

These were pretty easy to put together
and I just love all the detail in the butterflies!
