  3. Great cards and great timing. I just bought two new word dies that I’m eager to use – and now I have a whole bunch of techniques to try! Thank you 🙂

  4. I just adore this sew in love die! I love stitching dies and wish I could afford this die. Great job creating this die.

  7. I love that sew heart die. You can go from simple (die cut a panel and let card front show through) to complicated (by stitching the hearts) making it a versatile die!

  8. Wow! This video may have been long but it was worth every second. So many great ideas for using word dies. I look forward to trying each of them. So many tips, too. Your creativity never ceases to amaze me. Thanks for sharing your creativity! Love this new sewing die, too!
