March Special, Dies Restocked and Arriving SOON!

Hi there! Did you see our New Release Re-Cap Post from yesterday? If you did then you also noticed that we just announced a March Special!

Right now through March 31st or while supplies last, place a $75 order and earn a FREE Cover Up Die: Diamond Chevron - a $22 value! 

To get this free item, add the die to your cart and then at checkout apply the code DIAMOND. It's that easy!!

Here's a closer look at this die -

This die is exactly an A2 size of 4.25" x 5.50". It's simple to use and adds instant texture and detail to any card front. For best use, I recommend cutting a scoring an A2 card base. Then, with the card open and flat align this die to your card and cut. It will cut this lovely and intricate pattern right into your card base!

What I think is a little extra special about this die is that it's largely masculine looking, in my opinion, but it really does work for ANY design and truly looks feminine when used with flowers too.

Here are some team examples using this die so that you can see for yourself.

Here, Karen Baker made this lovely card and featured the Cover Up Die Diamond Chevron only partially on her card - a really neat effect!

I made this card and I went for a white on white looks. I love the subtle texture!

Here, Amy made this card bold but also very feminine. She layered her cut piece over a black base and and it's perfect!

Here, Chrissy did some color layering as well but in two shades of grey and it as a more masculine feel.

Chrissy again here and she used her die to emboss her background!!! A totally versatile use of this die and it adds a totally different look and feel.

Love this one by Heather Hoffman. I believe here she used a cut piece as a stencil to achieve this soft and pretty ombré look. What a cool idea!!


I'd like to take this opportunity to let you know that I restocked a couple of dies in the store last night and I have a few more that are on their way that we haven't had for some time!!

Also, arriving in a matter of just DAYS are a few dies we haven't had in a very long time which I hope you'll be excited about.

Well, that's all for me today! Here in Boston we're bracing ourselves for another 6 - 12 inches of snow tomorrow. It's our 4th Nor'easter in what I think is just three weeks. We're so done here with Winter! For now, I'll go to my happy place where it's all sunshine and rainbows - my craft room!!

Lots of crafty hugs and inspiration,
