My Favorite Things: DIES & Die Cutting Essentials + Giveaways

Welcome back to My Favorite Crafty Things 2015!

Over the next several days, I will be sharing my favorite crafty products of 2015. Each day will have a different topic with videos. I have lots to share, including big giveaways (see below) and even store discounts:

  • Simon Says Stamps is offering my readers 10% off site-wide using the code “JenCrafty” from 12/1/15 until 11:59pmEST on 12/15/15.
  • Ellen Hutson is offering my readers 10% off site-wide using the code “jensfaves” from 12/1/15 until 11:59pmEST on 12/12/15.
  • As you are shopping, please keep in mind that these stores and many of the stamp manufacturers had HUGE sales last week so inventory may be low. Please know that they have already placed re-orders! Also, I didn’t decide until last minute to do this series, so I didn’t give them much notice – my apologies. I explained more in my video.

Let’s get going! Today I am focusing on dies and die cutting essentials.
