True confessions time in light of "Authentic Life, Authentic Paper Art." I won a Slice die cutting machine from Making Memories when it first came out. I used it a bit and even purchased the embossing and drawing add ons. I'm such a snob for cutting things by hand that I really didn't put the effort into learning much about what it would do. Before this week I never used the drawing or embossing tools. This month I've personally challenged myself to learn all I can about my die cut machine and make the use of it in my style.
This is my sister back in the early 80's I believe.
Paper Collection from Making Memories Chloe's Closet.
Other ingredients: Prima flowers, American Crafts flower ribbon, Ranger's Perfect Pearls (spritzed on the flower ribbon) Tim Holtz Distress inks Vintage Photo and Wild Honey.
How about challenging yourself. Whether it is a tool or technique you've been wanting to learn more about, set aside time during the month of April to learn. Create a project/layout with what you learned. Leave a comment about what you learned with a link to your project here on this post. Making Memories has donated this incredible prize pack. From the entries Random.org will draw a name at the end of the month.
In the midst of all these awesome goodies is a Slice Desktop Unit. If you don't have a Slice you can certainly use it for other organizational items for your scrapbook table. Thank you Making Memories for your generous prize pack!
Please note that you must have a US address to be eligible.
Let me know via firstname.lastname@example.org if you have problems or questions about the challenge.
Have a Crafty Day!
