An old friend got in touch with me recently to request that I decorate a poem that she wanted to gift to her brother. Her brother had tragically lost his son and she thought this would be the perfect gift to bring him some comfort.
I found it a little challenging because it was for a male, and I didn’t know him. For a female, there are so many flowers! But using High Tide, I was able to fill up the space and I love the results! This set is so versatile and I hope you take a second look.
Once I was happy with it, I made a card to match her gift:
The colors are Pretty Peacock and Pool Party- so nice together! The Designer Series Paper I used is the Poppy DSP that’s retired now.
I hope this poem brings the family comfort as they remember their dear son.
Stamping’ Up! just released their new Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine and let me tell you, it’s a dream to use.
There is so much to love about this new machine:
- Durable machines with high-quality results. The frame is constructed from solid steel and has rubber feet to securely grip the work surface, producing crisp, clean, precise cutting and beautifully detailed embossing.
- Easy to use. All plates are labelled and numbered with a color code for easy reference and use when building your ‘sandwich’. The Magnetic Cutting Plate has a fully magnetic surface to make it easy to securely position your dies and keep them in place, just like the name suggests.
- Simple to store. The platforms fold for space-saving storage. It gives a sleek, clean design to suit any crafting space.
- Portable. With its folding platform and ergonomic carrying handle, it’s so easy to use this machine at home or on the go. If you attend any crafting get togethers, it’s so easy to take it with you.
