New Die Preview :: Marianne Buttons and Card

As I plan to cut out my dies to go in my filing box as i get a new one i thought i would show you how they cut too as often shapes can look different to the images on the package and with more of us shopping online its nice to see what you would get before you get it!

my new die this week is this Tag and Buttons Die I have some projects planned for this but also thought it may be nice for mounting little gifts and things that i make too!

Too many dies..... Could this be the solution?

As many of you know I am a mega die cutting fan!!
But as my collection grows and grows i find sometimes i get a little stuck for ideas as i have too much to choose from or i find that dies i have really wanted go on my shelves and collect dust..... So I needed to find a solution!

And I am hoping this is it! it is an 8"x5" index card box, I got it from ebay for around a fiver posted
My plan is that from now on as i use an old die, or get a new one i will cut an extra one and pop it in my box

The plan being that when i want to work on a card i can grab my box and layer up the shapes i have cut from scraps to see how they would work together then i can get the dies out and cut the shapes if they work, I think this will let me get much more use from my dies!

I have already made a start and just written on the die cut what die was used

I like it as i can see if something will fit or work without hunting down the die and cutting it out first!

Just an idea i wanted to share with you, it ay not work for everyone but it may help some of you get a little more from your dies!
