My Favorite Things - Pre-Release Pep Rally and Die-Namics Feature!

Greetings!!  Today I'm here with the My Favorite Things New Release Pep Rally. Over the last six days, you've seen all the new stamps and Die-namics releasing tomorrow night.  It's just so fun and exciting!  I hope you've been enjoying as much as I have!! 

My focus today is to share a sample, along with some tips and tricks I've done using one of the newest Die-namics dies - the Mix and Match Banner Set.   I used ALM - Ski Bunny as my sample stamp set but what I'd like to have you focus on is the vertical sentiment banner I've created on the right hand side of my creation.  

This is a super easy way to utilize your shorter and smaller dies in a whole new way, giving them a second available design option!  A great way to get more out of your dies!! 

Instead of a photo tutorial I decided to create a video for you!  I'm VERY new to creating video tutorials (this is only my second one EVER) and only have my iPhone as a camera but all in all I'm happy with the way it turned out!  If you have any questions please don't hesitate to pop them in the comments section and I'll be sure to answer them!  



Here is the sample card completed!!  When I ended the video I was unsure of how I was going to use my extended banner panel but I am thrilled with how it turned out!  I hope you enjoy!!  See you tomorrow at the Release Party!!!

Neat idea Meredith. Unfortunately, I couldn't see the video. It stated that it was private.
