The Sizzix Girls in Boston

This past weekend I traveled to the Boston area to meet up with Karen Burniston, Cheri Kimball, and Jill Tarayao to teach at the Collins Group Spring Education and Trade Show for Sizzix. We had a great time teaching classes to the retailers who attended.  We offered classes about the new Pop 'N Cuts die system, Stamp2Cut and the eclips machine, and a class with a fun mix of new designs by

Spring Crown

One of my favorite things to do with Sizzix dies is use them in unexpected ways. Simply by cutting from different materials, layering different dies and embellishments,  and adding surface treatments, you can create something unique and personal. Tim Holtz On the Edge dies are some of my favorites. Here, I've used the Scrollwork die to create the base for a spring crown. I cut multiple strips

Wishing you...springtime card!

Spring is here! It's time for flowers and butterflies. I'm so in love with the new Tim Holtz Tattered Flower Garland Decorative Strip die, it's amazing how many flowers you can get from a two inch piece of cardstock. To create this card cut a piece of green cardstock 4 1/4" x 11" (Core'dinations Distress Collection in Peeled Paint) then score and folded the card in half.  Now choose a

How Can I Choose?

Hello, Friends! I'm often asked what my favorite die cutting machine is.  Wow!  THAT is a loaded question!  How can I choose?  I {heart} the Big Shot.  I mean, what's not to love?  It can cut just about anything!  AND, it has diamonds!!!!  {Well, ok...they are rhinestones, but they shine just like diamonds!} But..... Then there's the eclips.  I'm very close to the eclips machine.  I feel like

Feel Better

My favorite thing about Sizzix Framelits dies is the exact placement you get when you lay the die over an image.The cutting edge is right at the open edge of the die so cutting is perfect every time! I started out with the Country Bicycle card topper from Flower Soft and used a Sizzix Fancy Labels Framelit die to cut a portion of the image. I sponged the edges of the die cut with
