Day 2 of our CHA Review brings us into the Elizabeth Craft Designs booth.  And you are going to “DIE” when you see all these wonderful products! (Hint:  Die Cutting Dreams Ahead!) Looking at the “Susan’s Garden” collection of dies is like stepping into a beautiful real life garden of projects. There are varying die sets that make varying dimensions of so many flowers. I had the pleasure of meeting Susan Tierney-Cockburn, the creative mind behind the stunning floral dies. Did you know about the tiny ladybug that is found in all of Susan’s designs? Karen Burniston is another incredibly talented designer who has a line of well-known 3D interactive die sets. Her Engineering background has produced the fun die sets called “Pop It Ups.” One theme is “Hot Air Balloons.” Jinks the monkey is new and oh so cute, with a coordinating bananas embossing folder!

Our family spent a wonderful 3 days of the Christmas break in Jasper, so I snapped lots of photos and wanted to scrapbook them.  I love this shot of my son and his girlfriend, hockey sticks in hand, skating on the outdoor lake with the mountains in the background. I used the new BoBunny winter collection “White Out.” It is such an awesome collection for any winter layout! The collection comes with papers, stickers, ephemera, die cuts, buttons, etc. all matching to make designing the layout really easy. For my title, I hand lettered the word “Frozen” with a Tombow Dual Brush pen and then scanned it and cut it out with my Brother ScanNCut machine.
