Columba Triple Gemini die


Hi bloggers!  For the final post of the day, I would like to introduce you to the Columba Triple Gemini die set.  I just love the shape and the detail to this one.  Since it is a triple Gemini set, you have more options for how to use the dies too.  The sample shown here uses both of the decorative dies with one of the cutting edges to create a lovely pair of side borders for this card.  You can see that Ella looks stunning when sandwiched between them as well.  Leave your comment on this post and join us back here tomorrow morning for the final day of the launch.  We are starting at our usual 6am time.  All for now, Sue x

Cetus Gemini Die


Hi crafters!  The next die on the launch is the new Cetus Gemini die set.  Shown here, you can see the pretty opportunities this was will give you for side borders, layers or even frames.   You may have even noticed it on the Baby's First Pram card earlier in the launch as it makes a great decorative accent too.   Since it is a Gemini die, you also have options for using the different sides of the die to create unique looks for your projects.  I hope that you will take the time to add your name on to the comments so you will have a chance to win this set.  The last post of the day will be online at 3pm.  You are not going to want to miss it!  All for now, Sue x

Sagitta Triple Gemini Die

Hello there my crafty friends!  We only have two days left on the blog launch and both of these are slightly shorter days.  We are starting first with the new Sagitta Triple Gemini die set.  Shown here, you can see what a pretty side border it makes and it plays so well with the Frames and Tags from this launch too!  This is a triple Gemini so you have extra options of using each piece separately or mixing them together for more detailed looks for your projects.  Just think what you will be able to do with this set!  I know you are going to want to put your name in the hat for this set!  I'll be back at noon with another one for you.  All for now, Sue x

Victoria


Hello bloggers!  The last post of the day belongs to the Victoria Frame and Tag die set.  I absolutely love this set as there are just so many ways to use it.  Shown in the sample here, you can see how this set makes quite a statement for your focal element.  When you consider that this is a smaller die shape, that is quite the feat!  I am always asked for smaller die sets to use and this one definitely fills the bill!  Don't let the size fool you though,  it still packs a real punch!LOL  Leave me a comment and let me know what you think!  We only have two days left now to share with you, but we will be starting at our usual 6am.  All for now, Sue x

Fairy Snow Globe Scene

Hello and welcome back!  The final post of the day is dedicated to the Fairy Snow Globe Scene die set.   I just love the way that the fairy lends itself to so many fun things to put in the shaker card.  Everything just looks like fairy dust when added to this cute scene; iced Snow, iced flake, stars. glitter, you name it and it works!  Don't limit yourself to just putting this cute fairy into the Domed Snow Globe either, be creative, use her on her own by simply nipping away the outer frame edge.  There are just so many things you can do with her.  Put her next to your favourite sentiment (like she has just conjured it up with her wand!)  If you like the look of this set, you just need to drop a comment on the post.  If you have never done it before, it is very easy and there are instructions written on the right hand side of the blog for you to follow.  See you tomorrow at 6am for the start of day number six!  All for now, Sue x

Hot Air Balloon Snow Globe Scene

Hi bloggers!  As promised, one of the dies designed to fit the Domed Snow Globe; the Hot Air Balloon Snow Globe Scene.  I just couldn't resist using the clouds again, not to mention, the pixie powdered background piece that is missing from the background of the scene was a perfect fit for the background in the snow globe on the previous blog post (did you notice that?)  While you can use this die without making it into a shaker card, it is just so cute with Iced Flake, micro beads or tiny stars in it, don't you  think?  I am looking forward to seeing what everyone does with these!  Leave a comment on the post before you go.  I will be back at 6pm for the final post of the day.  All for now, Sue x

Domed Snow Globe

Hello crafters!  I am featuring the new Domed Snow Globe during this blog post.  I had so many requests for a non Christmas styled snow globe that I just had to comply.  There is a matching domed treat cup for it as well as you can see by the sample shown here.  I did say that the cloud from the previous post would come in handy too! LOL   There are also some matching Stamps To Die For in a Christmas theme if you would like to turn this into your Christmas card design too.   Please feel free to use the Pin button to add any of the cards or dies to your boards.  If you join me back for the final two posts of the day, I will show you the matching scenes that are available to go with this design too.  Comments, don't forget.  All for now, Sue x

Twinkle Twinkle Cloud And Stars

Hi bloggers!  Day five of the blog launch is upon us and we are starting with a sweet set called Twinkle Twinkle Cloud and Stars.   Again, another set that has been designed with previous sets from the New Arrivals category in mind.  There is beautiful styling in the simple stitched edge that matches all the other sets too.  Both the cloud and the star have matching treat cup shapes and you  will notice from the sample shown, how cute the matching cloud treat cup looks!   If you are like me, you'll love a fun shaker card.  I can't tell you how many times I have wanted stars or clouds to help pull a card together too!  They are just so useful.  I would love to know what you think of it!  Put it in your comment and let me know.  Don't forget to add your name to the comment too!   The next die set will be premiered at noon today.  I would love to see you back here then! All for now, Sue x

Intermediate Weaving Die

Hi there my crafty friends!  The new Intermediate Weaving die is just that!  It has been designed to be used with the previous two sizes of weaving dies or by itself.  The thickness of the pierced weaving pieces is right in the middle of the two previous sizes so you can use them all to create unique designs and patterns in your weaving creations or simply by itself!  Personally I can't wait to see what the Queen of weaving, Julia Watts, does with this one.  Her weaving cards are legendary!  If you like the look of this one, you know the drill, just leave a comment on this post.  Remember only one comment per post counts in the drawing, but you have to be in it to win it as they say! LOL     Blog launch day number four starts here at 6am, don't be late! LOL
All for now, Sue x

Ecliptic Edger

Hi crafters and welcome back!  We have the Ecliptic Edger on offer during this blog post.  I love edger dies, they just offer so much in what they can do and how they can be used.  This set consists of three different designs and a straight cutting edge.  You have the added benefit of differing thicknesses that you can use depending on what your project needs.  They have been designed without the cutting edge so you can make them wider simply by using them together or create entire backgrounds by cutting and moving them along your card.  Shown here, I have used one of the edger as both a background and a border.  Fancy a chance to win this set, just leave a comment to be included in the drawing.  The last post of the day will be live at 6pm.  All for now,
Sue x

Alphabet Grid

Hi bloggers!  Next up on the launch is the Alphabet Grid die set.  This set is unique in that you can use the grid, use the letters or use the letters in the grid so the possibilities are endless!  It also works well with the Stitched Pegboard Frames around it as you can see from the sample shown here.  You may have noticed some letters on the Make A cake sample earlier in the launch too, it is quite a versatile set.   The letters also work in both positive and negative fashion for greater flexibility.  Remember you can also use the Pin button on any post to save cards or dies on your boards for later use.  leave your comment if you like the look of this one and want to be entered into this drawing.  The next blog post is scheduled for 3pm today.  All for now, Sue x

So Many Candles

Good morning all!  We are starting off with a new expressions die; So Many Candles.  The eagle eyed among you might have noticed it on last nights shadow box sample.  Yes it was designed to be bold, but also to fit inside of the shadow box design as well.  I love that you can make a quick clean and simple card with this set when needed.  Use the candle from the shadow box set and voila, you have a quick card.   It is also a funny way of wishing someone of the older persuasion a Happy Birthday too (yes I o fit in that category too! LOL)   What do you think?  Want a chance to win this one, just add your name to the comments to be included.  The next post will be popping up online at noon today.  I hope you can drop back by to check it out!  All for now, Sue x
