It's Tool Time at Creation Station



It's Tool Time this month at Creation Station.  We are sharing tips, tricks, and techniques to maximize any of our Stampin' Up! tools. 


I chose to highlight the Rectangle Stitched Dies as they are one of my go to tools that I use all the time.  I customize rectangles to fit my exact needs.  I also  cut arrows, triangles, chevrons, and lately photo corners.  I love a big flashy photo corner to add a bit of spunk and flair to a card.


Earlier this week I received the Peace and Joy Bundle.  I have had my eye on the stamps and dies for quite a while.  I enjoy creating with text and this bundle includes three focal text images and matching dies for lots of added dimension.


Along with Real Red and included Just Jade, Balmy Blue, and Whisper White colors.  Being a super fan of bling I layered in some Balmy Blue Glitter Paper and Blue Adhesive-Backed Gems.


1.  Use two Rectangle Stitched Dies to cut a chunky frame.
2.  Place a larger Rectangle Stitched Die diagonally across the frame to create a photo corner.
3.  A finished cut photo corner.


It's my hope that you enjoyed my quick photo corner trick.  Next up along today's hop is Sara Levin.
