A celebration of crafters and their imaginations.

Have you ever really sat back and thought about dies?

We've just had a delivery, and in there were quite a few architectural dies and stamps.

Now these vary from Gothic windows and arches to French style doors, fireplaces, roofs and doors, including louvre windows, windows boxes and walls, diverse to say the least.

As with all dies and stamps, decoupage or anything else to do with card crafting, it certainly the case the sum is greater than the parts.

Looking at these dies individually I don't personally know where to begin, but someone passed behind me while my desk was full of the new delivery, and said "Oohh they're nice, that would go really well with this particular die to make a 3D effect card on a back ground with such a border"

A crafter at work there, an amazing talent to be able to look at a collection of things, and work out in your mind what goes with what to look great, or at least have a basis of what to do, it might all look very different on paper, but no doubt once that's been done I'm positive you'd be able to turn it all round and make something great.














So, to all crafters, thank you for your flair, skill and imagination. Please carry on, you make my/ our job all the more exciting because of you :o)
