Diecutting transparencies and more

Torrey left to go back to Texas last Saturday....but I still have videos! This is the last one and she is going to answer your questions about diecutting transparencies. Of course, if you still have questions, just post them here and we'll do our best to answer them!

Here's the sizzix daisy - look how well itcut the lines:

The edge of the nestability circle:

The nestabilities inked with alcohol inks

The quickutz ballerina - just look how clearly it cut the face:

  The inked stencil from the ballerina - not shown up close in the video but I know I can do something with this!

This is the ballerina that Torrey inked on plain typing paper, using alcohol inks from the stencil she made above:

And yes, you can cut any "plastic" this way.  If your plastic is soft/flexible it is going to be less likely to cut with your thin rule dies.  But if it's like regular printing transparency sheets - it will cut just fine if you build the sandwiches like Torrey shows in the video.

Now, go thumb through the Lucy McGoo manuals and let us know what you'd like to see in video format.  We'll make a list and put together more videos in the future.  Hope you have enjoyed these!!
