Tuesday-ish Tutorials - Spellbinders Die Cut Machines

Hello my peeps! Sorry for the delay in getting this post up. This week I am playing with 2 of Spellbinders die cut machines; The Grand Calibur & The Artisan Explorer. I will show you the benefits for each machine and show you a bit of how they are different. 

You can watch this week's video HERE.

I ended up with a TON of die cut goodies by the time I was done and I made the layout below.

The large flower is die cut from Want2Scrap cardboard using my Bitty Blossoms die.

My Sprightly Sprockets can be die cut from cardboard using either machine.

The Grand Calibur's large plates allow you to make a TON of die cuts at once. I always use the Grand Calibur when I'm making lots of flowers.

The denim and cheesecloth bows are from last week's tutorial on the Bow-it-All.

I used the negative space circles from the inside of the Sprightly Sprockets on this layout as well.

Spellbinders dies: Bitty Blossoms, Carnation Creations, Grand Peony Creations & Sprightly Sprockets
