Top Tip Tuesday

Top Tip Tuesday is a challenge blog with a twist, you don't enter a card but you enter a tip!  So without further ado here's my tip for this week:

How to cut out digi images using your nestie's

I usually arrange as many digi's as I can on a page (keeping in mind how I want to cut them out).  On the picture you can see the top right hand corner of my A4 page.  I place my nestie on the page and then work out where I want it to be (or spend ages trying to decide which shape/size works best.)  I then use masking tape to lightly stick the nestie (on the outside) to the paper.  I trim around the nestie so that it's an ok size to go through my big shot.  You can then emboss.  I also use this technique to create apertures (remembering to put the masking tape on the inside) and to create frames i.e. using more than one nestie.


  1. Great tip to use the low-tack tape Heather. I very often end up cutting mine out totally as I try and cram too many on one page at a time!!!

  2. Love this idea also, and using the tack on the outside, can't tell you how many images I ruined because they slipped. Thanks for joining us at Top Tip Tuesday this week.
