spellbinders die cut lettering ideas + review....


friendsssss! i have a new craft tool that i am O B S E S S E D with -- like, major love.  

my friends from scrapbook.com & spellbinders recently sent me a spellbinders platinum die cutting machine to play around with & i am completely smitten with this nifty little fella.  i feel like my bible journaling pages & DIY booklet creations are about to go to the next level with all of the pretty things i'm going to be die cutting for my upcoming crafty projects!

the first thing i did when i received my big box of die cutting happy mail was to youtube how to work this fab contraption.... with this being my very first die cutting machine i knew i needed a smidgen of visual guidance.  

y'all need to check out the super easy peasy tutorial that the lovely lindsey created using custom painted papers for her own lettering project! her youtube channel is amazing :]


i decided to grab up some of my illustrated faith gratitude documented paper pieces to prep alphas for the upcoming november gratitude documented project.  i used lindsey's wise tip for washi taping my dies together which helped SO much for cutting multiple alpha sets!



after a quick run through the spellbinders platinum die cutting machine, i peeled off the washi taped alphas & used my [amazing] tool-n-one to pop out the little pieces of paper from each die....



i spent about a half hour cutting tons of lower case alphas for my upcoming projects & i am SO excited to use them in my bible margins & DIY booklet projects :]


of course, i already have some paper packs set aside for my next alpha die cutting projects.... i'm completely addicted to making custom & coordinating alphabet sets for #allthethings now!!

a few favorite paper packs i'm getting ready to die cut with....


other goodies on my ever-growing wishlist include these adorable acorn dies, magnetic die cutting platform + a set of uppercase alphas! christmas is right around the corner, right?! ;)


okay, y'all -- so i also need to share this little scrap hack i came up with on the fly during an instagram live bible journaling sesh ;) 

make sure you save your die cut papers -- the ones that all of the alphas are cut OUT of.  the lowercase alpha set from spellbinders fits perfectly in my fiskars medium circle punch & this is a fab way to use up some of that scrap paper.... seriously, friends -- NOTHING is trash!



thank you so much to scrapbook.com & the spellbinders team for providing me this free machine to create with!! this post is a 110% honest review on a product that i truly love & want to share with my favorite crafty friends -- you! xo
