    THANK YOU for sharing this BEAUTIFUL tempting sneak peek – LOVE metallics!!!
    PS – I can’t live without my self healing craft mat, it is part of every project I create. I use the cutting side to cut, the grid on the cutting side to align and the reverse side for when I am adhering layers together AND as a sturdy base for my Big Shot when I’m die cutting and embossing too => YES, it is an AWESOME tool!!!

  16. Joan M. says:

    Wow! Talk about BLING! As a cardmaker, I probably won’t be making as use out of your material, but it sure is nice to know it exists.

    My favorite tool is a mechanical pencil (try to mark after measuring without one…)

    1. Niki Meiners says:

      The material cuts just like paper. You could be amazed at what a card maker can do with it.
