Have you ever wished for a magic wand that creates professional looking layouts, perfectly matted cards, and multi-layered paper crafting projects in the wink of an eye? The revolutionary Cut, Mat, Create Collection from Heartfelt Creations is a unique system designed with stress-free crafting in mind. You can finally liberate cherished family photos hidden away in dusty shoe boxes and create stylish scrapbook pages with ease—and without restrictive plastic pockets! The dies create a grid that fits perfectly on a 12" page, allowing for limitless layout possibilities. Use with stamps and papers to create precisely matted cards or mini albums. The 4 die sets contain 27 individual dies. The 6 coordinating stamp sets also complement previous collections. The luxurious papers work hand in glove with both dies and stamps. Whether you are a paper crafting novice or a design diva, you will love the freedom, simplicity and versatility of this innovative, must have collection.For my first project using the Cut, Mat, Create collection, I decided to show how fast and easy it is to make a mini album with this collection.
I made simple photo mats so photos can be easily added later.
