COMING SOON!!! New AWESOME 2 die-for Ribbons in SnC

.
Going back to our first passion at Scrap-n-Crop.com, we've imported in more awesome ribbons - jacquards, tulle, satin, grosgrain - with unique designs that will leave you dizzy with choice.



This shipment in particular is getting me all excited as I had always, always wanted bolts and bolts of them as I was growing up … but with the type of pocket money I had (more so in "seashells") they were way above my budget.

I suppose after all these years of hard work, it finally paid off. I can buy cartonS of them!
{at times like these, despite all the hard work, it's great having a scrapbooking store!}
.
Oh just so you are forewarned, do not be alarmed if I spot the gypsy look in no time.
I'll be dolling up Beck's skirts for sure!
.
.
Lastly, if there's any one of you out there who are into ribbon craft, mixed media artist who loves incorporating these great ribbons and would like to share your creations with us by way of Featured Artist and/or Crop.Arty, please contact Scrap-n-Crop.com at admin@scrap-n-crop.com

Kill Your Monday Blues with Hils Hints: Diecut Machines Part 2

.

Part 2: Die-ing for Dies -  Which One Is Right for You?


In Part 1 we ventured into the world of die-cutting with a look at the main die-cutting machines that are available, and how you could choose the one which best suited your needs.

This week we are looking at the dies themselves.  There are so many die manufacturers to choose from these days, it is hard to know which dies to go for.  Which will cut chipboard or felt?  Which will work with which machine, and what sort of combination of sandwich plates do you need for it to work properly?

The sandwich plates issue is actually pretty easy if you have access to a computer – and since you are reading this you must have!  Just Google die-cutting sandwiches, plus the name of your die-cutting machine (eg Cuttlebug, Big Shot, etc) and you will be presented with a choice of compatability charts that should tell you exactly what plates to use with which dies.

As for which dies to go for, well that is somewhat more complex.  Some will only cut paper and cardstock, others will cut virtually anything – felt, chipboard, grungeboard, foam, cork, and so on.

Sizzix are very good at making it absolutely clear on their website the materials that their various types of dies will cut.  If you have a specific material in mind, simply go to www.sizzix.com/catalog, scroll down slightly and on the left you will see a menu item “Material Compatability”.  Click on this, choose the material you want to cut, and you will be shown all the dies that will meet your needs.

As a general rule of thumb though, Sizzix Originals and Sizzix Bigz are the ones which are most versatile.  Chipboard, felt, fabric, foam, magnet material, leather, craft aluminium and grungeboard are among those listed as compatible.  These dies are a little more expensive than others, but their high quality, versatility and longevity makes the extra cost well worth it.

Coming soon to Scrap-n-Crop.com is a popular, relatively new, brand of die called My Favourite Things Die-namics.  These are thin, metal dies, and so are more limited in their cutting abilities than the Sizzix Bigz and Original.  Nevertheless they can still handle felt, cork, acetate and more.  They also have the advantage of having stamps that match some of the die-cuts.

Another manufacturer that is currently very much in demand (though not yet available at Scrap-n-Crop.com) is Memory Box.  These are favoured for their amazing and very intricate cuts.  Like the MFT dies, they are thin metal dies, and will cut card, felt, fabric, shrink plastic and more, but not thicker materials such as chipboard. 

Spellbinders have had a loyal following for some years now.  They produce Nestabilities, Edgeabilities, Shapeabilities and more.  Many of these emboss as well as cut but, to the best of my knowledge, are largely limited to cardstock and paper.

These are just a few of the many manufacturers who are now producing dies, and it is worth spending some time surfing the net to see which styles and dies you prefer.  Be careful though, not all manufacturers put on their website what their dies are capable of cutting.  I think it is wise to assume that if they don’t say otherwise, then you should stick to paper and card only.  You could experiment with other materials if you wish, but I really don’t recommend it as there is a serious risk of spoiling the die, or, even worse, your die-cutting machine.

Over the next few weeks we’ll look at some fun ways of using and making the most of your dies.
Top tip – Don’t panic if your cutting plates make a worrying cracking sound as they go through the machine.  This sound is completely normal!

Crafting with Lissa: Wizardry Halloween Mini

.

...
and what do you do with scraps?

A rather common "problem"for all of us scrappers. Well, since Scrap-n-Crop.com's Kit of The Month are such great deals … here's what Lissa did with the extras … another Halloween themed 6" x 6" mini album from Graphic 45 Wizard of Oz Collection
.

.
Check out the details below - hidden compartments and pockets to allow more "storage" spaces and journaling spots - as well as great use of embellishments.
.

.
I'm so inspired by this - noted, not a hard task given our craze for all Halloween - I'm going to make myself a mini album too.
.
Hopefully Becks will be in a good mood to dress up and pose for photos.
Sigh!

And guess what? after all this, Lissa still has extras! She's thinking of making a LO and a Memory Puzzle Game!

NEW ARRIVALS!!! Somerset Memories August 2012 in SnC

Cynthia Shaffer uses her signature paper towel art in a lovely collage tutorial that you can tailor to your own altered style. 

Learn how scrapbook artist Anna-Maria Wolniak's incorporates watercolor magic into her beautiful layouts, and don't miss our digital expert, Michelle Shefveland, as she explores even more techniques for printing your digital designs on fabric.
