I have something a little different to share with you today. As most of you know Die Cuts are my favourite creative tool, I use them in some way or another on everything I create. Marianne Design Divas is having a DT Call at the moment so I couldn’t resist using some wonderful Marianne Designs Dies to create some interesting projects to share.

The first is a Carousel using some gorgeous Marianne Doily Dies and Magnolias sweet Mini Princess Horse:

I was really pleased with how it turned out, I’m sure any little girl would love one of these to decorate their room

Next I have 2 beautiful shaped cards, the first is a Christmas card in Non Traditional colours:
