Playing with my new toy...

... an Accucut Grandemark die cutting machine.  I splurged on it and got a number of dies that I can use to make mini albums.  (Well, okay three of them are actually mini-album dies.)  This is my first experiment.  I made a coupon holder or receipt holder book.

I made a video of how it opens in a fan shape.  (Click the image to go to the video!  If you have choppy video, pause for a bit while some of the video loads ahead of time.  Then play smoothly.)

I used a tutorial I found on Club Scrap.  I really like Tricia Morris as a project instructor.  She is animated yet still very clear and easy to follow.

My next project will be the sample card for the first workshop of 2012 benefiting the Southern Ontario Animal Rescue. We are learning the "Joy Fold" card.  It's a bit like small card on a bigger one.  Well... you'll see when I post it!
