I created a "build your own album" bar for the local scrapbook store that had more than 4 dozen different Accucut album pages cut from both karft colored and black Grafix Chipboard as well as borders, frames (for the convertibles album covers) that could be purchased by the page and mixed and matched to create the customer's own unique chipboard album. It was a big, big hit with customers.

I like to mix and match chipboard for assorted mini albums or SMASH style albums, I like to sell them "naked" and promote that you can have your paper cut to fit as I have the dies in store. I like to die cut smaller shapes from the waste from bigger die cuts and sell them in themed sets or indivually. I Like creating sample from the dies as they were intended to be used or in creative ways to show their versatility. I like using black chipboard for albums, because you can decorate them without having to fully cover with cardstock or designer paper. I like to create my own Faux pinnovation dies with standard dies to give me more options.

When I'm getting down to the end of a paper line, I like to make a card supply kit: a bunch of similarly themed 6x6 papers and a bunch of die cuts plus any embellishments you want to throw in (ribbon, buttons, etc). For example, I recently made a Christmas kit with 10 Christmas papers and then a set of both red and white poinsettia die cuts and a set of gingerbread men die cuts. It's a great way to move inventory before it gets too stale.


Making personal favors and decorations is how I see making money with the dies. Suppling the zip lock bags with the pre made flower headers. Putting photos on the bags and boxes. Giving the hand made feel and touches that people don't have time for. And that I love to do.


I have done a few parties for little girls where we do a few cards and mini-albums. They are a great hit with the kids and moms. This of course has led to additional sales for crafting kits from the parents.
