Sapphire Plus - Butterfly card

Hello friends

Two shows yesterday with the lovely Dean Wilson, 
there was a lot of laughter!

The Main Attraction (magnetic tool) has proved very popular, 
it really is useful.  My top tip is to wave it over your bin to ensure
that you haven't accidentally thrown away any dies.
To prove this point Dean abandoned me on air to search for a bin!

I know I can natter but it's a whole new experience being left to it. :)

Also the new craft mat is brilliant, good size, double sided and a magnetic
strip across the top to help organise your dies while working is a super idea.

And the Sapphire Plus machine - it really is smooth and easy to use,
the fact that it takes both sorts of dies is proving massively popular.

Today's card's card uses Label 2 Plus from the Sapphire range.
A simple aperture in Craftwork Cards paper.
Really taken with their paper designs.

Blooms One and some leaves also make an appearance,
quite a lot of coloured matting too - love my 5 x 7 Matting Basics.

Today I have a show at 4pm, before then a little look around
Peterborough, getting to know it quite well here.

Take care friends.

  8. Hi Christine

    Beautiful card I love the craftwork cards papers and card so good quality.

    I did watch your show with Dean yesterday whew he is like a whirlwind and so

    funny good as a tonic watching him :-)

    I have ordered a sapphire magnet it looks really useful and will save lots of

    accidents with small dies.

    The Sapphire plus looks interesting and your demo's were fab. I am tempted

    but I got a Big Shot Plus for Christmas so I will have to wait for the new one.

    Will the sizzix steel rule dies (the very old ones that we all have boxes of)

    fit into the new machine? that would be great if they did as my original

    Bigshot is now very very old and its not cutting very well and a Sapphire

    Plus would be a lovely replacement.

    I have recored the show for today so I don't miss it. Enjoy your day hope you

    have the sunshine very cold but so nice to see Mr Sun.

    Luv n hugs Annxx
