Hello! Nichol here today with some tips and tricks on utilizing 3x4 (or 4x6) Sn@p! Sets cards for die cutting.
Whether you use a digital die cutting machine like the Silhouette Cameo or a manual die cutting machine, I've got some ideas on making the most of your Sn@p! products in non-traditional ways!
Digital die cutting completely changed the way I scrapbook and I can't imagine being without my Silhouette Cameo! And the icing on the cake? Why, the fact that Simple Stories now offers cut files in the Silhouette Store, of course!
I used the following cut files for my first project share today, a layout utilizing eight different designs!
I used some of the cut files "as is" and some files I altered to fit my layout needs. I'll show you how in the accompanying video.
Video How To:
I used the polaroid die cuts to "frame up" my page, with a title and journaling in the center of my layout. By layering the die cut polaroids with Sn@p! 3x4 Cards, I was able to create a cohesive page with simple layers and lots of color.
Once the base of the layout is together, layering on stickers, additional die cuts and dimensional embellishments make the page pop!
The polaroid frames were cut using a variety of 3x4 Sn@p! cards. Most of the cards are from the awesome Office Card Foundations. I implemented many of the Wedding Sn@p! Squares and Pieces, Love Sn@p! 3x4 Cards and Homespun Squares & Pieces into the frames. Don't be afraid to mix and match your Simple Stories Collections!
For my card, I used a metal balloon die in a manual die cutting machine (the Sizzix Big Shot) to die cut balloon shapes from the Birthday 3x4 Sn@p! cards. I also trimmed the greeting from one of the Birthday 3x4 Sn@p! cards.
Adding detail to the die cuts with Glossy Accents, a glitter marker and string make these die cuts a cut above the rest! ;)
The balloons didn't take much paper from the Birthday 3x4 Sn@p! cards so I filed the scraps away to use on more die cutting projects!
