Welcome Back

The theme for The Virtual Crafting Challenge for July 2008 is;


Die Cuts & Punches


Die Cuts


Die cut embellishments and toppers are commercially available. If you have a die cutting machine, you can create your own items from plates available.   There are many different designs and styles of plates available for the specific machine you have.

  • Creating main images
  • Creating boarders
  • Creating apertures in cards
  • Creating embellishments



There is a wide selection of punches available, different styles of punch are useful for different projects. If you have dexterity issues the leaver stlye are easier to use than the button pushed ones.

  • Creating main images
  • Creating Boarders
  • Creating apertures in cards
  • Creating embellishments

These are just a few ideas to get you started, remember this is your journey make what ever you like the important thing is to have fun and try new techniques.


My best tip is to type your chosen die cutting machine into the search box of www.youtube.co.uk and see what comes up, there are many tips and tutorials on there on all sorts of machine.

Best wishes and thanks for reading
