Spellbinders Hip Llama Tutorial

Hello friends - thanks so much for stopping by today.  I have a tutorial for Spellbinders to share today - using the adorable Hip Llama - and he lives up to his name beautifully - such a fun die to play with and so much potential.  I decided to make a desert scene with him - the cacti work beautifully don't you think!

Die D-Lites Hip Llama Etched Dies is a set of three dies and just like the name, it is one hip llama! A perfect design to add to any of your trendy and fun projects. -Spellbinders.
