Card Idea using Special Delivery....

I often get ideas by just looking at QuicKutz dies. Here I saw the oval label die and immediately thought of making it into a band aid. Could be because all my daughter seems to wear is band aids these days!!!  But check it out ~ it's a band aid!!!

Special Delivery Gift Set and storage idea.....

Did you purchase the new Limited Edition Special Delivery Gift Set??  Only a few still in store ~ these are definitely the best gift sets made by QuicKutz so far!!  So many dies for the value and so many possibilities!!

If you were one of the lucky ones that did get the set, you open the packaging and then what?? How do you store all the dies with easy access when you want to use them??  I found the perfect container that fits all the dies and easy to store. With Back to School here, it's the best time to find containers that are meant to be for pencils and such but looking "outside the box" (and measuring) they can be used for die storage!!

(here is the top of the container ~ of course I had to decorate mine!!)

(side view of box ~ ensure you get one with a good snap closure so your dies don't fall out!)

(inside of box ~ see how nice all the dies from the Special Delivery Set fit!)

So when shopping for Back to School supplies, take out your measuring tape and find that storage container that works best for you!!

New Release finally "flew" into the store!!

Yes, we have just stocked our shelves with the new Birds & the Bees release as well as the Special Delivery Gift Sets!!  They are already starting to "fly" out the door so get in quick and purchase your favorites before they are gone!!
(dies used: 4x8 Raindrop Alphabet, 4x4 bird house, 2x2 bird, branches border, scallop border and scallop circle from Special Delivery Set)

I'm loving the new border dies, both the branches and the vine are a great addition ~ you can cut them down too for smaller projects.  The 3 new 4x4 flower dies are sweet & simple ~ I can see them being added to my everyday use die pile!! Use them as is or layer them all differently, the possibilities are endless.......

(dies used: 4x8 Raindrop Alphabet, all 3 of the new 4x4 flowers, branches border and vine border)
