~Thank You Teacher~

There are a few more challenges I was inspired to play with today.




(Papertrey Ink Communique Curves Sentiments,Papertrey Ink eyelet lace border die,Papertrey Ink Fruit fusion apple die and stamp,DCWV natural stack,American Crafts AC cardstock, Piggy Tales DP,Ranger Tim Holtz Distress ink marmalade,Memento ink black)

My colors brown and white were drawn from




Die Cutting Challenge in the Moxie Fab World
encouraged me to use my apple die INNOVATIVELY...by using the negative but only filling part of the apple.


I wanted it to look like a heart.


The best teachers incorporate their heart, don't you think?





Creating Backgrounds with Border Dies demonstrated by Dawn McVey,


encouraged me to use my eyelet lace border die-which I love.


I ran the borders through my Xyron and zigzagged the background.


Thank you for stopping by today. ;)
