Square Aperture

Hello crafters!  It seems like it has been awhile since the last launch as there wasn't a launch in December, but here we are now!  As always, we are giving away one set of each of the dies based on drawings of those of you that leave a comment on the posts.  Go ahead and leave a comment on every post for more chances to win, but lease only one post per die post.  I would also like to remind you to make sure that you sign your comment with your name and add in either a surname, your last initial, the city or town where you live or just a funny alias.  I need some way to make sure that only one person claims each of the winning dies (I only have one set of each to give away)  and there may be more than one person with the same first name (get where I am going with this!)  You will have a bit of time before I do the drawings, they will be done and posted on Feb. 3rd.
On to the first die set now!  Introducing the Square Aperture die set here.  It took me awhile, but I worked out how to do the decorative squares and also an inner scalloped die in the same set!  With this set, you can use either the square apertures with the decorative squares around it or you can use the inner scalloped aperture or you can use them both together as I have done in this sample.  I will explain more about this as we go along.  If this set is singing to you, then just leave a comment on this post.  I will return at noon today with post number two.  All for now, Sue x

So it may have taken a while to figure out but you did it beautifully and its going to be so popular. I can't wait to see more samples using this die, and I'm looking forward to the rest of launch. What a start xxx

June Smith said...

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, oh I have been so looking forward to another of your releases and this scalloped square aperture die is going to be very popular, think of all the things you can put into the squares, I am loving the ones you have used, but what about all the (dare I say Christmas dies) ones we already have that would fit into them and love the sentiment to, yes you know this is a winner.

Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

Hi Sue. What a really useful die as you have done all the measuring for us (I do appreciate that it was quite a task for you). I particularly like the way you can include the decoration in each aperture or not.

Hi Sue, a beautiful card to kick start you latest launch. I love square cards and this die set is brilliant. I can see me mixing and matching all my accessory dies between these and my slimline dies and it is this that makes the multi-functionality of your dies such good value.
