  3. I learned something new today! I love how you showed how to make the ribbon fibers! That is neat! I'll have to try that on a project.

  8. Hi Erica! Super cute card. I loved that paper the minute I saw it in the catalog. I plan on getting some for sure. Would it work to put the scraps on and then run it through so you didnt have to cut around it. Just wondering how many layers it will work on.

    Thanks for all your great ideas.

  13. I haven't had any mojo for quite a long time. I want to try this method. I too would like to know if you couldn't re-run it through a second time.
    Fun lesson.
    Thank you!

  14. Okay...that didn't look as hard as I imagined it to be. I am going to have to try something like it although I know that mine won't end up nearly as cute as yours!!!! I knew you'd get great ideas from leadership :)

  15. Hi everybody! I am sure it would work the same...I can cut two layers easily with the framelits, and a third sometimes. DSP is thinner than CS, so I bet it would work! I just like that "reveal" when you turn it over after snipping them all off!! It's such a huge "WOW! It worked!!!" kinda moment! LOL! Thanks for all the comments!
