Open Book – Love This Die Set


Hello you all {waving madly}. It is Ifa Zainon with you today and with a slight departure from my normal 5 products focus.

I couldn’t  resist Maggie Holmes Open Book – Love This Die Set and couldn’t afford anything else this month.  That reindeer is just too adorable, no ?

Love This Die Set

I started with a line up of five die cuts on this layout. I sew them on the background card stock and used them as the base of my title. I wanted to mix up the title a bit so I used the wooden words from last month’s supply with a die cut “this” from the die set. Naturally, I threw some other embellishments on the title…

The layout turned out a bit crazy and rather eclectic which suited the photo of the four of us at The Dungeon in Blackpool last summer.

For the next layout, I showed some restraint and used just one deer. I also used some frames from an old pack of Maggie Holmes Notes & Things.

    Love the use of more than one deer on the layout, and the colours really ‘pop’ to show the difference.

    Fabulously put together Ifa – love your style… and now I’m tempted by that die -set !
