Hi Luci...right now I just use one-my Big Kick. I LOVE it-because it is so simple and fast. I do use dies from different companies-I have not had a die that couldn't work with this machine. The only problem I have had is if I want to cut thicker papers-they don't usually work well with the thin metal dies. A few days ago I tried to cut through clear acetate with a wafer thin die, and it couldn't make a perfect clean cut;-(.
The Christmas decorations are done! I just need a TREE, which won't happened until next week. This year I am doing Advent with the girls, and they are loving it! I still have a few more boxes to make, like 12 more. I am having trouble finding the sizes I want, argh. Last night I made the NOEL garland-I used some glitter spray paint, that stuff is awesome! I am going to hunt down more stuff to spray this weekend. Not that I need more decorations!
Over the weekend I grabbed a few sheets of my favorite gold glitter & mirrored papers from Michael's-since they were on sale. I made a few Thanksgiving decorations with the golden papers & my Big Kick-a garland and some framed art. I only wish that my photos turned out better, I tried & tried! It is so hard (for me) taking photos of things with lots of white. Argh!
This weekend I was able to make something! This is a play off a Valentine love signs I did last year, I thought I would do a Halloween version(and soon a Christmas one). The signs are double-sided with a different version on each side. It has a modern clean look, I really want to make a few more! I also made the skull/butterfly banner last week.
Today I made a sweet little mom garland since Mother's Day is this weekend. I am hoping that we have more sunshine than storms this weekend-today it's 80+ and sunny. But storms are predicted later today. For my Mother's Day I am wishing for dinner out & cupcakes-and sunshine! Happy Mother's Day!!!
Hi Keisha! I've been following your blog for years and I must say, I really do love your cards. I was wondering what white cardstock you use... it has a nice bit of texture, but not too much! Could you please let us know? Thanks!
I made two quick cards today with some new things that came in the mail-more embossing folders & a bunny/chick die. I am excited that I have some new things to try this weekend-even a box of Stampin Up goods that just arrived. It's been a while since I have order from Stampin Up-new stamps, punches, dies, and a embossing folder!
