Peg Rounds lives in East Moline, Illinois with her husband and best friend, Kevin and their son Josh and 2 dogs. She was an elementary school teacher turned stay at home mom, and later a home school mom. Over the years, she designed cakes on the side and went to school to become a certified chocolatier. She always has loved to craft since she was young and it was something that she wanted to be doing, but set it aside due to her busy life. After 15 years of doing cakes she decided it was time to stop and focus more on her family. She began doing layouts, then cards and it went from there. Before she knew it, next to spending time with her family, she spent every free moment creating something and blogging about it. One thing led to another and here she is today! Check out Peg's blog, Peg's Crafting Corner to see what else she has been up to!

Q: Can I use only the company’s dies that are the same brand as my die cut machine or can I use others?
A: As long as you follow your instructions from the manufacturer of your die cut machine and the plate stacks that they recommend you will be able to use other dies in your machine. Each type of die will require a different plate stack and some may require the purchase of specific plates so be sure to check first so you don’t cause damage to your machine.
Add some color and dimension to your backgrounds using the grid technique. It’s a great way to make a main image stand out and a way to create a background that matches the theme of your card. This winter themed card is a great way to show off this technique.
