Negative Space!

Hi, this is Sue Bruch again, this time taking over the hosting duties from Tamytha.  Tamytha, a Florida resident is facing evacuation from her home as Irma makes landfall.  I am happy to be filling in and am hoping she and her family remain safe.

So, Negative Space...what does this mean?  For our purposes, it is the space remaining after die cutting, using an electronic cutter or a punch.  We are hoping you will take out your favorite cutting tool, papers and maybe stamps and inspire us with how you make a negative space a very positive thing! Just remember to use at least one Close to My Heart product.

Not sure how to start? For your inspiration, here are projects from the design team.
