Betterr than a two-pound box of chocolates ... Really!
So many great new die cutting tools and goodies have just arrived - A Jillian Vance Design (AJV) stamps and dies .... Spellbinder makes the A Jillian Vance Design dies, so you KNOW how great they are!
In the upper righthand corner, just below the zipper die, is the pocket die ---- we've got ideas coming you way with those, to be sure!!
Here are a couple of card samples that were on display at the recent tradeshow that enticed us to order these yummy dies and stamps.
The very, very nice thing about their stamps and dies is they have created lots of great sentiments and components to work with the dies - for a braod range of occasions or "Just Because".
This "Say Cheese" Card incorporates the classic Polaroid die frames as well as camera and message stamps...
And the Wedding Wishes Card uses exquisite label, cross and poinsettia dies and also incorporates a wonderful stamped cross background and sentiments that are perfectly matched in size to the label die at the center of the cross.
We've got lots of ideas coming your way with the new AJV goodies. As a matter of fact, you can hop on over to the blog post in our Tips, Techniques and Tutorials section for the how-to's on Shelby's Gift Card Wallet featuring the AJV Zipper die and coordinating stamps - a truly interactive experience!

But that's NOT ALL ....
remember, I said it was BETTER than a two-pound box of chocolates. And as we all know, one of the sweetest things about a two-pound box of chocolates is the VARIETY that surprises us with each chocolate we taste-test!!
So, without further adieu, we are thrilled to let you "taste-test", so to speak, our newest arrival in the die cutting tool family at Simple Pleasures.
What exactly is the eBosser?
It's the new, fully automatic and large format embossing AND die cutting system. It's universally compatible with most cutting dies and embossing folders. It easily cuts or embosses materials up to 8.5 inches wide and 11.7 inches in lenghth, too!

No Worries - we have a great new accessory item for you to use with the die cutting system you may already have and use and use and use.
It's the Lifestyle Crafts Genius Ultimate Magnetic Platform System.

Use it in you Big Shot, Vagabond, Cuttlebug, Epic or Evolution machine, whichever workhorse machine you have!
The kit comes with a MAGNETIC platform and includes two mats, one for embossing and one for cutting. The cutting mat is new and improved, longer-lasting with less curling. As a bonus, the kit includes a set of 10 nested dies (NOT the circles shown above, but a set of 10 nested labels with a $24.99 value).
Pretty Yummy, Hummmm .......
and No Calories either!
So that's our update for the week on the exciting NEW die cutting tools and accessories we have received. Now, time to get back to some paper crafting fun. What should I do first, try out those new AJV stamps and dies, or play with the magnetic platform a bit - oh, wait, I can do both at the same time!! Happy Crafting!
