Expression Thinlits Fun

   Wow, the time has really flown by since I lasted posted.  I have just returned from a family reunion in Angola, Indiana.  What great times we had. It took me a while when I returned to get back into the stamping mode, but a meeting of the Jubilant Butterflies last night helped me get back in the groove.
     I gave a brief demo on how to use the Expressions Thinlits in an easy and non-frustration manner.  Mary Fish has a tutorial you can access here that demos what I am talking about.

1. First if you have a magnetic platform your job will be so easy, otherwise a regular platform for a Big Shot will work just fine.

2. Layer in the following order cutting plate, cardstock or DSP, waxed paper, thinlit, second cutting plate.

3. Run through the Big Shot, then use a paper piercing tool to poke all holes and inside shapes out.

4. The cut out piece will come out so easy because of the waxed paper.  I tried several samples and they all worked out just fine.

   I can't wait to make some more cards using these delicate phrases.  Come back tomorrow for a great hint on how to glue the phrases to your project.


  1. These are SO pretty! Glad you had a good trip. Can't wait for the fall wreath class!

  2. Thanks Marty, I have a wonderful picture of the wreath on my misplaced camera. I am excited about the class.
