Festive Collection

Hi Bloggers! This post is dedicated to showcasing the Holly Swirl die.  You have seen this used on a number of samples during this blog launch and with good reason, it is a favourite of mine!  I just love the way it can be used as an accent on floral embellishments.  This die can also be nipped apart and used in smaller sections which makes it a real time saver when you need a quick card.  I love the fact that it just creates such a lovely way to set off your focal elements as I have done here.  This is definitely one you will want to have in your crafty arsenal.  Leave your comment here and pop back by at 3pm.  All for now, Sue x

Hi crafters!  The last post for today is focusing on the SnowFlake Flourish & Corner die set.  Shown here, you can see how lovely it looks when used as corners or even connected to make a pretty frame detail.  This die set like the previous post has been designed in a deboss manner.  It shows off the beauty of the snowflake and swirls with a uniquely elegant look to it.  I think you will find they are the perfect piece to finish off your corners on your festive cards and projects.  You just need to leave your comment and tell me what you think of this set in order to be entered into the drawing to win it!  So easy!  That's it for day seven, but we have one final day to go that is starting off at 6am tomorrow morning.  I would love you to join me then!  All for now, Sue x

Hi crafters!  The next die release is the Poinsettia Flourish & Corner die set.  This is one of my personal favourites as I just love the elegant look it gives your projects!  The Poinsettia Flourish set has been designed with debossed detail,giving you a beautiful flower display that can easily be used to add accents to your corners or create frames.  The holly piece allows you to create borders and you can add in any flowers you want with the separate flower piece so there is so much versatility to this one.  leave a comment and join me back here at 6pm for the last pot of the day.  All for now, Sue x

Hi crafters!  The second post today is dedicated to the Ribbon Lattice die.  This is definitely one that can be used all year round as there is no obvious Christmas look to it. It does, however, look amazing when used with your festive dies so it makes the perfect partner.  This die can be extended to make a complete background, used as a striplet or even cut and used diagonally as I have done here.  Think about using it behind your shapes as added detail or even cut it down and use it as a partial die cut.  Leave a comment on this post if you like what you are seeing!  I will be back at 3pm for the next post.  All for now, Sue x

Hi bloggers!  Welcome to day seven of our blog launch.  We have two die sets on offer during this post; the Checkerboard Poinsettia Border and the Scalloped Snowflake Frame.  Shown here together, you can see how lovely they work together.  The Scalloped Snowflake frame can easily be used all year round.  The Checkerboard Poinsettia Border can easily be used as a background when cut repeatedly, or as a side border or diagonally as I have here.  I can only imagine all the beautiful ways you will be able to use both of these die sets  for your festive cards and projects.  Two chances to win here if you leave a comment on this blog post.  The next post is scheduled for 12 noon today, I hope to see you back here then.  All for now, Sue x

Festive Collection 6pm

Hi there my crafty friends!  The last post this evening belongs to the Looped Snowflake Frame die set.  Shown here, you can see that it makes a great focal element for your cards, but it also works well with other dies in the release too.  It is slightly larger in size than the Art Deco Snowflake so it can easily be used with it as a layer or in a buckle card formation as I have done here.  It comes with a snowflake in the centre of the set that can be used as an accent too.  Leave a comment if you like this one.  You never know it may have your name on it!  All for now, Sue x

Hi bloggers!  I have long been fascinated by the look of all things 3D, especially when it comes to crafting!  This post is dedicated to showcasing the new 3D Fireplace die set.  Shown here, you can see just how realistic the fireplace looks.  The die set comes with a number of items that can be used to build up the scene and add detail to your festive cards and projects.  While the die has been specifically designed to be used in a 3D manner, you can easily nip away the tabs and just use it on a flat card as a regular fireplace, but I think you will have more fun when you add the dimensional detail to it!  The die cut will fold flat for posting too so now worries there.  Leave me a message on this post if you would like a chance to win this one.  I will be back at 6pm  for the last post of the day.  All for now, Sue x

Hello bloggers!  This post is dedicated to two dies sets; the Gingerbread House and the Gingerbread Roof.  Shown here, you can see that this set can make into a 3D house for your Festive display at Christmas.  Although you cannot see it in this photograph, I have made the side windows sheer using vellum so you can put an electric tea light inside the house and it glows through the windows.  It will be very pretty at Christmas time.  The Gingerbread House set can easily be used on it's own too as was seen in the previous post.  If you want a bit more, add the roof and make it into something 3D for a Christmas keepsake.  Comments?  Don't forget to leave them!  See you at 3pm!  All for now Sue x

Hello and welcome back!  The last post for today is focused on the Art Deco Snowflake.  This die set has a very modern feel to it and will look fabulous for those clean and simple look cards.  Or, you can use it layered up with other dies for a completely different look.  The sample shown here has been created in just that manner.  The Art Deco snowflake is layered up on the Lace Snowflake so you can see that they will work especially well together.  You know the drill by now, leave a comment if you would like a chance to be the lucky one that wins this die set (someone has to win!).  We will be starting day six at 6am in the morning.  All for now, Sue x

Hi crafters!  Another double die post.  We are showcasing both the Lace Snowflake Frame and the Let It Snow Snowflakes die sets.  The sample shown here shows how well these two sets work together too.  The Lace Snowflake Frame has a hexagonal shape with a parchment craft feel to it, sort of like the edges have been hand cut with Pergamano tools.  The Let It Snow sentiment is beautifully readable but has the added detail of various snowflakes woven into the lettering for a real frosty feel.  Both sets will add so much detail to your festive cards and projects.  You can see that they look lovely with the Snowflake Edger that was shown in earlier blog posts.  Please let me know what you think of these two in your comments.  Do you have a favourite die set yet?  Just a quick reminder too, don't forget to make your nae memorable on those comments.  Use a alias or some other form of identifying yourself from everyone else leaving comments.  You would be surprised how many people with similar names leave comments!  I will be back at 6pm for the final post for today  All for now, Sue x

Hello bloggers!  There are two dies sets on offer this post; the Frosty Frame and the Tidings of Comfort & Joy.  You can see from the sample shown that they look amazing when used together, but both sets will work equally as well on their own or with other dies.  The Frosty Frame set was a real go to set for many of the samples I made with this release.  The snowflake detail on the rectangular frame can be used in so many other ways.  I am looking forward to showing you more of it in the coming months.  Don't forget to leave your comments, let me know what you think, which dies you like best or anything along those lines.  Please feel free to pin any of the samples to your boards too so you can save the ideas for later use.  The next blog post has been scheduled for 3pm today.  I am looking forward to seeing back here then.  All for now, Sue x

Hello crafters!  We are at the exact halfway point with four days done and four more to go!  I am starting off this morning with an introduction to the Stitched Snowflake Striplet.  It has a very clean, modern feel to it and like all striplets, it has been done with two pieces.  There is an inner decorative die with an outer cutting edge, but this one has the added detail of stitching around the cutting edge. Shown here with the Caught in Crystal technique, it is absolutely gorgeous in it's simplicity.  This set will be great for those of you wanting to make batch cards but still give the Wow factor.  Leave a comment and join me again at noon for the next offering.  All for now, Sue x

Hi bloggers! We have two die sets on offer during this post.  The Merry & Bright die and the Garland Edger die set.  Shown here, you can see just how lovely they look when used together,  The Merry & Bright is a modern font with style and easily readable.  The Garland Edger set has been designed in the style of being easily usable for any occasion, not just for Christmas, so there is a lot of versatility to it.  The edgers are easily extendable as there is not an end cut to them.  They also do not have a bottom cutting edge so you can make them whatever sized border you would like for your projects.  They can be easily cut into edges or you can use a paper cutter to make them into borders as well.  This is the last post for day four so don't forget to leave your comments to be entered into the drawings.  You can go back and leave comments on any of the earlier posts you may have missed too, but please only one comment per individual posts.  The directions on how to leave a comment are on the right hand side of my blog if you are new and have never done it before.  There is no time like the present to start though!  All for now, Sue x
