Extending Your Dies 2 Ways {and a tip} with Savannah O'Gwynn

Hello, friends:}

Savannah O'Gwynn here today! I've created a video sharing how to extend your dies 2 different ways (esp. the Paper Smooches Notebook Basics die). I've also shared a quick tip on how to use some scraps from your dies on one of your creations!!!

Here's the video:
Here's a couple of pictures of the finished cards: 
Extend your die by using an embossing pad
Extend your die image by cutting it up-- and use some of the scraps for dots 

I hope you will try extending some of your PS dies using these two techniques!! I also hope you will use some of your scraps for embellishments on your creations:) Please leave a comment below with a link to your creation or project! I'd love to check it out:)

**And don't forget if you leave a comment, please add your blog address and email so I can visit you too:)

THANKS so much for stopping by! Be blessed:}

Savannah - perfect niche for you: videos and tutorials to showcase your creativity! All are wonderful - especially this one (and now I'm off to ponder ordering this die!). You're an excellent teacher; as a former teacher myself (resigned, not retired...long story), I consider your skills mighty darn impressive! Thank you for sharing, inspiring, creating, motivating...
Have an excellent Saturday; blessings to you.
