Very cool Patty! I really like how trimming this die shape gives so many different looks when stamped. Great tip!

Carol Burnett

Really never thought of altering the framelits. But I found three you could alter. Oval Accent bigz clear p.232, Labels collection p231, and there is one in Chalk Talk that could be altered p.230. Thanks for the tip I am going to have fun.

This is a great tip, Patty! I love seeing ways to use SU products in non-traditional ways. TFS!!


Thanks for the great idea. I altered the label die and it makes an interesting shape. It is always good to be able to use a product in many ways.


What about Deco Labels? In the catty, what is the pool party peeking out from the altered window frames framelet?


What about Deco Labels? What is the punch/framelit peeking from behind the altered framelit ?

Love this idea and can't wait to try it.

That label in pool party behind the window framelit looks like
Artisan Label punch cut in half so it looks like it fits the width of the altered Window framelit.

What a neat idea, gives a hole new look to the framelit. Always looking for something different to use on a card. Thanks for the video tip.
