I am in love with these two boxes! The colours, the die cut shapes, the everything!

Not my usual style of crafting at all, it’s a much longer video than I usually make at almost 20 minutes, but I think the end result is worth it, even with the butterfly ‘issues’ that I had.

I’ve since discovered that yes it was my plate that was causing issue. It had bowed so badly that it wasn’t allowing a neat and clean cut. I’ve since swapped the ‘sandwich’ around now and it’s cutting absolutely beautifully as it was just a couple of days before. I totally blame my Mum and her request for numerous gold and glittery butterflies for her tree!!!! I’m kidding! We had a great time!

But I am thrilled with how the blue colours worked out. I wasn’t sure, I never ‘practice’ a colour combination before I film it, but the mixture of Tempting Turquoise and Soft Sky was spot on.

I hope you like it, and that you bring out your Thinlits and Framelits too!

  2. So pretty with all those die cuts! tfs!

  3. Loved your box and your use of thinlits for the top of the box. I look forward to your posts and thank you so much for sharing your creativeness with us every day.
    I flatten my acrylic plates by putting them in the oven. Preheat oven to 325. Wrap plates individually in aluminum foil and place on a bake pan with a heavy pyrex or casserole dish on top. Heat for 20 to 30 minutes.
    Hope this is helpful.
