Creating Brackets and a Tip with Savannah O'Gwynn

Hello, friends:}

**Sorry for the delay in posting-- YouTube was giving me some problems. But all is good now:) 

Savannah O'Gwynn here today! I've created a video sharing how to create bracket die cuts using the Paper Smooches Duo Die 2. I also share a quick fussy cutting tip near the end of the video:)

Here's the video:

I've used this technique before on THIS card. Here's a picture of my finished creation from the video:
I hope you will look at your dies in a different way! Please leave a comment below with a link to your creation or project using this technique or fussy cutting tip! I'd love to check out your creation:)

THANKS so much for stopping by!

OMG, fabulous tips & ideas! I've been using washi tape to hold dies down on the cutting board (it kills me to be usig my nice tape for this)- the painters tape is a great idea! And the fussy cuting tip? Brilliant! I use n Exacto blade to do it, but your tip so much easier!

Seriously clever! Great video. You were so clear and easy to understand. I think it looked easier than it was!

Outstanding video! From explanations to the visuals of what you were doing, this was wonderfully educational. As a former high school teacher, I'm continually in awe of solid, engaging 'lessons' - and this video most certainly is! I came away inspired and excited to try out this new technique! A++++ for you!
Thank you for commenting on my 'woohooo' chick card! Even though I know it was a 'long shot' in connecting to the kissy-fingers inspiration phote, I had so much fun playing with my new PS stamps. That you invested time in sharing a few words with me - well, that means more than you may realize (oodles more!) in amping up my motivation and confidence to carry on. One of these days (far, far down the road...)I'll have a 'knock 'em out' card! Until then, I'm going to just enjoy the journey!
Love your cards and site; hope to see more video tutorials from you!
