Calling all Cuttlebugging Card Makers!!!!

And other die cutting machine users  of course - I just wanted to let you know I have sourced some new dies from a company called Marianne Design and they are just gorgeous.  Very detailed (similiar to Spellbinders)
and at reasonable price points.

I had a play with the Butterfly last night - couldn't resist and I was very impressed with how well it cut - especially considering how fine the detail is. These dies all cut and emboss - instructions regarding which plates to use are included in the packaging.
This particular plate only embosses and the packaging contains some reallty clear instructions regarding use.

All are sized with cardmakers in mind, but could be used for scrapbooking and other paper crafts as well.

I only have limited numbers of these so let me know if you would like some more info - all are priced under $20.00
cheers for now - I am off to play some more

A Kid in a Candy Shop!!

Martha Stewart has arrived!!!!.....well her punches have anyway........drool

This deep edge Daisy Fan has to be one of my favourites

Hydrangea is another cute one

Is it too early to start thinking about christmas cards? This ornament edge punch would be just perfect!!

Another deep edge punch - Garden Trellis is over the top and gorgeous!

I've also received stocks from  Tim Holtz and Spellbinders:

Bits and Pieces from Tim Holtz's Idealogy range

These border dies from Spellbinders are simply gorgeous - alll are 12" and are very detailed so you can cut, emboss and stencil all with the one die.

Yay!!! - It's Crop-a-lot Day

Hi all
thought I would post some quick notes before I go and pack the car.  Parcels from Jenni Bowlin (embossed, colour core cardstock) has arrived along with glue guns from glue arts (THEY'RE PINK!!!!!) gorgeous bits from Tim Holtz and some Pink Paislee pretties have arrived and I'll unpack them at the crop!!
With any luck there will also be some more totally hot stuff from Dusty Attic - I am stalking the postie  - as well.

I am also expecting a delivery from the US any day - so more details on that when it arrives......

Before I forget, I went to a class last night, taught by the lovely Geraldine at Scrappy Hollow -totally ROCKED!!!- you can take a peak at Geraldine's blog here  I very rarely go to classes - only because I am the SLOWEST Scrapper on earth and I get flustered when I don't keep up.  But last night was very different - using lots of fabric scraps and hand stitching and very therapeutic.

cheers for now - see some of you this arvo
