A few days ago I received an email from Laina Lamb (she is an AMAZING designer by the way) asking me if I would like to "play" with some of her dies and stamps. Umm...YES! TOTAL no brainer there! When they arrived I looked at them and didn't really have any inspiration for the first day, the next day I really looked at the stamps and found this one:
I knew EXACTLY what I wanted to scrap, my pictures from my daughter and I going to see the Hunger Games movie! These pictures have been waiting and I knew that I wanted to add the mocking jay on the page as well. (it's something I made using my silhouette, using it on our shirts as well....) I had to pull good old red out of the dusty closet OLD SIZZIX die cutting machine (seriously like 12-13 years old):
These are the dies I used, you can find them HERE:
Here is a little closeup of the die cut title (This is the same die cut as from above):
I used another die which can be found HERE:
This is what I used for the background can be found HERE:
The fun little stars came from this set found HERE:
I can truthfully say I enjoyed using my die cutting machine, it's been YEARS since I pulled the thing out but these dies cut SO nicely, it was like BUTTER! I will definitely be using these dies again SOON! Also, these stamps stamp clear with no shadowing. I sometimes stamp stuff and it isn't a clear image all of the stamps I used stamp so crisp. I can't wait to use these stamps on cards and my project life. Thanks SO much Laina for the opportunity I REALLY appreciated it!
