A Berry Sweet Feature Friday

It’s berry picking season so I decided today that  it was time to pair my Die-namics Berry Box with some new, summery patterned paper.  I’m using Simple Stories: Summer Fresh, I love the bright, happy, and homespun feel to this collection.

I pulled together a coordinating thank you card using little Pure Innocence: Berry Girl.  She’s been finished with a little bit of paper piecing (If you’re not familiar with the technique, you can find a how-to video here.)  I’ve used both sets of Circle STAX today.  Remember, if you purchase both the Set 1 and Set 2 STAX you’ll be able to get close layers like this.

When you have a pattern paper you’re loving, go on ahead and use a little more of it to finish your card inside and out. I mirrored the outside layout using two smaller Circle STAX Die-namics to add a sentiment.

I tied a quick Cheater’s Bow using the Wild Cherry Ribbon, this ribbon really ties such luscious bows, I’m pretty are you’ll love it as much as we all do! (If you’re having a tough time with bow-tying, the Cheater’s Bow might work for you.  You can see how to tie one on this video.)

While I was at work, I set up my camera so that I could share a quick How-To video showing how this Die-namics works.  You’ll love the embossing features on this die.  The Die-namics will pre-score all your fold lines to speed the box assembly and create a beautiful debossed seed pattern.

Here’s a this week’s video, showing how to create these cute little berries.  I put together an eight pack of berries last night while catching up on programs on my DVR. I added two berry flavored candies inside each of my Berry Boxes, and tucked eight finished berries inside this fun ceramic berry box I picked up on a recent trip to the mall.

Thanks for stopping by today, have a GREAT day!
