My Grandma's Teacups Scrapbooking and Craft Supplies: TIANYANG Dies: Layout #5



This is my favourite layout that I created with the dies I received from TIANYANG
This window die is beautiful and the the flowers are just so versatile I can see the possibilities for so many cards and layouts. The stamped images were done using my Close To My Heart acrylic stamps and the freehand drawing was done using ShinHan markers.

My Grandma's Teacups Scrapbooking and Craft Supplies: TIANYANG Dies: Layout #4




This is the fourth layout in our series reviewing the TIANYANG dies.  This is one of my favourite dies that I received. The legs on this ballerina are so delicate it is incredible.  I found it hard to decide which of the many ideas this cut inspired would make it to the studio table.

Heroes of the City on Youtube


One of our young Heroes of The City fans trying the HOTC Baby App


My family has long been huge fans of the Heroes of the City franchise. With it colourful characters and positive messages it is a wonderful series to immerse your child in. When I heard that Heroes of the City had started a Youtube channel I knew I needed to share the news with all of my friends with little ones. Last summer I had several of the local kiddos in our area try out the Heroes of The City Baby App and every one of them was in love immediately. Now the kids can see more of their favourite characters on Youtube. The channel is full of Heroes of The City episodes, guessing games and crafts. Be sure to visit the Heroes of the City home on Youtube




My Grandma's Teacups Scrapbooking and Craft Supplies: TIANYANG Dies :Layout #1

One of the wonderful folks from TIANYANG Dies approached me about trying out some of their cutting dies in my work. Generally I do not use dies as I have a Cricut explore but after several conversations I agreed to test their product. TIANYANG provided several dies for me to work with and I wanted to share what I created with you.

Layout #1


I used the TIANYANG product Product ID:32263845233 and 32263845263 
to create the lovely flowers in the layout. I was surprised by the number of sheets of cardstock that these dies can in fact cut in one pass. The edges of the cut are very clean and slightly embossed for a professional feel when working with the petals. I really liked the versatility of the design as I was able to make several variations with one die.
