Paper Sweeties October Release Party!

It's time to party!! The new releases are available and I have to say that this is one of my absolute favorite releases to date.

In addition to the releases, I have something else that's new and exciting for you today. I made my first ever video tutorial!! It's probably not as smooth as others who have been making videos for a long time, but it was my first try. I really wanted to share a way to get your dies to cut perfectly around your stamped images.

The stamps in the Joy set are very narrow and the dies are closed, so this technique is a great way to line up the two for a perfect cut every time!


 If you're on a mobile device, or you're having trouble viewing it in the post, click here to watch it on YouTube.

Now for my card. I used the Joy sentiment from the new release also called Joy. The pattern is made up of holly leaves cut from a die in the set Snow Friends. The dies in this set are designed to coordinate with an existing stamp set that I don't yet have, but that didn't stop me from getting use from these dies!


Take a look at the rest of the design team's creations. You are going to love what they did with these awesome new sets!!

WOW! First of all what a wonderful helpful video! You did a great job explaining how to achieve a perfect die cut with the stamps! I've never seen this helpful hint before, so I truly appreciate it, thank you! And, your Christmas card highlighting the joy sentiment is perfect!:-)

Wonderful video and card! I loved your tip! I have also seen people use the die cut piece to line up letter i's and j's that need to be dotted in the proper place on a project. I hope we see many more wonderful tips and tricks and paper sweeties products shown off via You Tube!
