Flip It Fun

 OK, so I saw a blog post using the Sizzix Flip-it Dies, and immediately ordered 2 (they just happened to be on sale at could I not?) Of course, once I got the die, I will admit, I wasn't sure what to do with it, and now I can't find the blog...and being on dial-up, I just couldn't even get to the 1 minute video on really is getting ridiculous!! Lay some cable up the hill for criminy's sake@!!) So, after playing around, I came up with an idea..and now I have to ask...How is it possible that I can't find even a scrap of patterned paper to go on that itty bitty front flap??

Please go to exhibit A: The big box of my 6 x 6 paper pads....and exhibit B: where 80% of the stacks on the left side, 2nd and 3rd sheet are patterned paper packs, and 40% of the paper stacks on the right side are too..Really??? I can't even claim I had the perfect sheet, but it was the last one and I didn't want to use it(hoarder syndrome!) I just couldn't find anything!!!  Thank heavens for the embossing folders...added nice interest.  And the new tattered florals border...I'm finally using up small scraps of paper; just lay them down, and bingo! Now I need a small basket to start storing all my little die-cut pieces-parts! 

Exhibit A
I also have the ornate frame die, which I think can make great birthday apparently I need to get the Framelets die, with the big circle to make layering a snap... And I guess I should start my planning by picking out a nice patterned paper, then going from there...because obviously I can't work base out! LOL!
Exhibit B


  1. I think most of us have hoarder syndrome Kim but nice use of the embossing folder and flowers die Honey.
    You do realise that if you use your papers you create a space which has to be refilled with twice as much as you had there before? Great trick!!

  2. You are not alone on that Syndrome girl, we are all in it with you.... If someone says they are not, they are telling fibs.....

    I love what you have done with the flip it, now I have do get my act into gear and do mine. I did start the other week but work sadly got in the way and sleep. Important for me...

    Thanks for letting me know you completed the card, it is just beautiful.
