Thanks for popping in.
I got lost in my little world of telly prep today. So far I’ve done far more than we’ll ever have time for in 2 hours! And there’s so much more to explain and suggest! Mmm… this will require some more thought; maybe I can blog a few little tricks & ideas. Cherry’s new stamps are insanely versatile! Even something as simple as stamping on Designer paper, embossing and cutting out looks fab! And I haven’t even touched the stencils yet!
But today I’d like to show off our new Fresh Cut dies, which we will be launching next Sunday evening. We have been saving these for the first ODS of the year – they are very special.
Mel drew them. You can see here, there are 4 aperture dies, but each of the scenes is split, as though one were looking through a window – a train window even! The dies are numbered and also tessellate beautifully, to create an amazing panorama.
We also had them made into miniatures, into Quarterettes, because we know how much you love those.
My dear friend Debbie McMullin sent me a photo of one of her DT pieces, which perfectly shows off how the dies line up to create a whole countryside! Look! Blimming brilliant!
I think they will make great Groovi plates too, don’t you?
So that’s what coming up this time next week exactly! 6pm Sunday. I have a feeling we will be very busy. What, with Cherry’s epic Doodleology Collection, and then Mel’s wonderful Rolling Countryside Dies – there’s something for everybody!
Time to start packing a few things into boxes, ready for the move. Paul and I spent hours on Friday considering WHERE things are going in the new building. Then Dave and I discussed the actual moving strategy over breakfast this morning. You know, who’s in charge of what, the sequence of who, when, what, where; what needs attention first etc. There’s a helluvalot to think about and a helluvalot to do. So we put the kettle on and had another cuppa.
One day at a time, one thing at a time, one room at a time, one department at a time – it is all very doable. This time next year we will look back and smile.
Love & Hugs,
