So you kind of like making cards. But have you thought recently that maybe it’s time to take the next step in your relationship with the hobby? Have you been eying a die cutting machine? Well, you might want to think about getting one now (if you don’t have one already) because we have the perfect complement for such a purchase. Introducing Die Cutting for Paper Crafters!
You’ll find projects by the Go-to Gals, shaped cards, boxes, bags, tags, party ensembles, home decor, and cards. Plus you’ll see lots of projects that use all kinds of die-cutting mediums like cork, bark, felt, and so much more. (We’ll go into this more on Friday!)
And since we wanted to make it a little easier for you to quickly find a project at your skill level, we’ve added a new icon to our issues that tells you for each project whether it is simple, moderate, or ambitious.
Plus, (I know, I’m kind of running out of breath here) you’ll find projects made with the Silhouette CAMEO, Big Shot, Vagabond, Cuttlebug, Cricut Mini, Grand Calibur, and more. AND in the back of the issue you’ll find our machine comparison chart, which lists the details on the most popular die-cutting machines so that you’ll be able to pick out the one that works best for you! (Phew, okay I’m done for now.)
We have a section in this issue that contains boxes, bags, and tags, like this cute carton by Vanessa Menhorn.
There’s also a section on home decor where you’ll find this Pretty Tea Light Jar by Jamie Greene.
And one of the most fun things you can do with your die-cutting machine (in my opinion) is make cute shaped cards like this one by Jaclyn Miller.
Beyond these, you’ll find a plethora of cards, all which couldn’t have been created without a die-cutting machine. I mean, check out this elegant card by Angeline Yong Jeet Leen!
From our 2012 Reader Survey, we know that about 4 out of 5 of you own a die-cutting machine, with half of you owning both a manual and electronic die-cutting machine. But the real question is do you have an issue like this to help you maximize your creating power?
So how about a chance at a copy of this issue right here, right now? I’ll give away three copies of this issue, so leave me a comment telling me if you have a die-cutting machine, which one you have, which one you want, or anything else regarding your die-cutting status. I want to know! Make sure you leave your comment by Wednesday, November 14th at 5 pm MST for a chance to win. I’ll randomly pick three winners!
Thanks for checking in, and head on over to the Moxie Fab World blog for more about this issue!
