A little while ago, I was contacted by Top Dog Dies,
and asked if I'd like to work with some of their products.
Um, yes, please!
You may not know Top Dog Dies. It is a new online store that offers their own brand of wafer-thin and steel-rule dies, along with dies from brands you already know and trust, including My Favorite Things, Sizzix, Savvy Stamps, and Cheery Lynn Designs. Tog Dog Dies is also the leading U.S. retailer for Tattered Lace, a new line of intricate dies designed by U.K. designer Stephanie Weightman.
One of the projects that I'm sharing today is a mini-book I made using their Heart Mini Album die.I decided to make it about all of the things that I love.
For my album I used a mix of Crate Paper and Fancy Pants patterned papers.
For my cover, I used a Reverse Confetti Love Note heart die, backed with a
Crate Paper embellished heart.
The arrow is part of the Heart Mini Album Finishers Set, which I die cut from some
smokey shadow cardstock. The decorative brad is My Mind's Eye.
The alphabet dies that I used on the cover and throughout the mini book are Mama Elephant.
I'm not sure what happened, but I ended up cutting my back panel incorrectly, but I was able to salvage it by die cutting it again with the large heart die from the Heart Mini Album Finishers Set
-- so fabulous that they are exactly the same size!
which I used to make a baby card for Jonah & Sage's kindergarten teacher.
I die cut the Onesie Card die from sweet blush card stock.
I diecut a heart (using Reverse Confetti's Love Note dies) from the front panel.
I stamped the sentiment from Reverse Confetti's Lots to Say stamp set.
Then, I die cut the onesie liner from Onesie Card Finishers Set and layered it under the front panel.
I traced the heart with a pencil and proceeded to fill it in with some Pretty Pink Posh sequins.
Then I adhered it to the front panel using some dimensional adhesive.
My favourite thing about this card?
I stitched on some ribbon to give it a ruffly bum!
Another Onesie Card Finishers Set die cut adhered to the inside
hides the stitching.
I hope you like my projects and check out Top Dog Dies for yourself!
