Ok, lets talk thin dies! I am really excited about this group of dies. I really wanted to offer things that would be versatile. My thinking is that if I spend $20-$25 on a set of dies, I want to be able to use it in multiple ways. That is one of the reason I avoided anything to themey. I like good basics, things you know you can use over and over again no matter what you create- cards, pages, mini books, journals, planners, and more!
Those basics start with one of my favorite things- tabs. I have four different sets of tabs in two different styles. The first two are a flag style. The first set is Frayed Tabs. Frayed Tabs look a bit worn and ragged.
The second set is Shortie Tabs. Shortie Tabs are the same basic shapes as the Frayed Tabs, but they are a bit shorter and have cleaner edges.
Both Frayed and Shortie Tabs have a score line in the middle so that they are easily folded in half. The score line is subtle so if you decide to use the tabs flat like a label you can.
Seriously, look at what you can do with these tabs! They make great flat labels, mini banners, flags on pins or toothpicks, wrapped around bundles of fibers and ribbons, tabs on the edges of pages or photos, and folded over paper clips to create fun clips for your pages and planners. I am sure there are more uses and I can’t wait to see how other crafters use them!
The second style of tabs are a more traditional style of page tabs.
I had fun drawing them and included lots of shape variations. So many that we had to break the tabs into two sets!
Like the Frayed and Shortie Tabs, these tabs aren’t limited to just the edge of pages!
They are super cute on the edges of photos and on top of tags in pockets as pull tabs or on the edges of….
a waterfall page!
I love waterfall page elements. They are a great way to add an interactive element that adds extra pages to a layout or mini album. I love filling them with small Instagram style photos. They help you add a lot of “real estate” to a project.
There are two sets available, each with two different styles. You can mix and match or build the waterfall from just one design.
You can also add as many pages as you want, so you can add one single flap or ten! I’ll be sharing an assembly tutorial soon when these ship so that you will be able to see how to assemble them.
Finally, there are five styles of mini envelopes! Aren’t they so cute?
I love how handy these little envelopes are. Tuck them on a page for a bit of hidden journaling to a page or include one on a gift as a small gift card. There are just tons of ways to use them.
There are five different styles available. Each comes with a note card die.
Each pocket is super easy to assemble, but I will have some videos to show how to assemble them a little closer to the shipping date.
I still have steel rule dies to share with you tomorrow and then I can finally dive into sharing some projects. I can’t wait to show you what I made with these dies!
PS. The ship date for all of my products is April. They will be available at stores worldwide (independents and online) and online at www.spellbinderspaperarts.com!
