Lots to Do - Use a machine

The Lots to Do Challenge this week is "use a machine." I've been collecting spellbinders dies for a while but using them doesn't come naturally. I love the geometric neatness of these dies and very much admire those who make such gorgeous layered cards with them. I've finally managed to put something together using the basic design from this lady's wonderful blog. I've used a Zip e Mate and I find it cuts the nestie dies pretty well. (oh yes - another easel card LOL)

A fantastic approach using the Spellbinders Carol. Something along these lines would make a good masculine card too.

Nice take, Carol. I know what you mean - I'm exactly the same way with the nesties. I only have hexagons and one of the labels, but I really struggle to use them, even though I love SOME of the things other people do with them. Just not very creative at the moment, lol.
