Enjoy the journey with Sizzix


I'm having a lot of fun with the March 2015 release of Tim Holtz Alterations dies for Sizzix! Here's a layout made with some of these dies.
 
 
To make this layout, I used:
660228 Sizzix Thinlits Die Set 3PK - United States
660240 Sizzix Movers & Shapers L Die - Envelope
660212 Sizzix Thinlits Die Set 13PK - Adventure Words: Block
657900 Sizzix Big Shot Machine Only (Powder Blue & Teal)
655093 Sizzix Accessory - Cutting Pads, Standard, 1 Pair
656499 Sizzix Accessory - Standard Magnetic Platform for Wafer-Thin Dies

Others: cardstock, patterned papers, adhesive, stickers, brad

Now let me walk you through the steps.

 
Lay a Standard Cutting Pad on the Magnetic Platform. Place a patterned paper on the Standard Cutting Pad and the United States die  blade side down on it and cover with a second Standard Cutting Pad. Pass the whole sandwich through the Sizzix Big Shot Machine to die cut the map. The Magnetic Platform holds the die in place allowing for neat and precise cuts.
 
 
Lay the Envelope die on Standard Cutting Pad blade side up, a patterned paper on it and cover with a second Standard Cutting Pad. Pass the whole sandwich through the Sizzix Big Shot Machine to die cut the Envelope.
 
 
Lay a Standard Cutting Pad on the Magnetic Platform. Place a patterned paper on the Standard Cutting Pad and 'enjoy', 'the', and 'journey' dies from the Adventure Words: Block set blade side down on it as shown and cover with a second Standard Cutting Pad. Pass the whole sandwich through the Sizzix Big Shot Machine to die cut the phrase.
 
 
Assemble the Envelope.

 
Attach patterned papers to the backs of the die cut pieces.
 
 
Play around with the elements to see which arrangement you like best. Attach to page when you are ready.
 
 
Place a brad on the map to mark the location where your photo(s) were taken.

 
Tuck some fun elements, ticket stubs and memorabilia into the envelope to finish.
Hope you enjoy :)
