I make greeting cards and donate them to charity. Other quilling dies produce flowers that are so much higher (even though 1/8 " quilling paper is used for both). This flower scrunches down so flat that it easily fits in a standard A2 envelope.....and you can vary the colors of each strip to get some really stunning effects. I LOVE THIS DIE SET!!!
The book is full of methods and ideas. It covers many Tim Holtz creations and has steps on how to achieve them. The pictures are inspiring and very helpful in learning his methods. I really like it.
I needed a dependable glue gun for my wreath making business. I noticed the Surebonder brand featured in some of my wreath making books and was curious about other brands and how they stacked up. I spent many hours on the internet reading reviews and blogs from crafters both novice and professional, paying close attention to their comments about ergonomics, ease of use, length of time unit requires to heat up and throughout the whole process, I always came back to the Surebonder High-temp Cordless Glue Gun. In wreath making, the last thing I want to do is drag a cord over my creation, especially if some of the ornaments have yet to set. For my purposes alone, I cannot imagine using a glue gun with a cord attached to it. Funny thing is, I wasn?t looking for a cordless glue gun and now I can?t imagine working without it. It's got great features. Plug the gun in and it?s ready to go in just a few minutes. Glue stays wicked hot while off the base for a good 5-8 minutes. The gun fits my manly hand comfortably. There?s a great little orange light that lets you know the unit is on. I did the research. BUY THIS ONE! No cords, no fuss. I've been shopping Overstock for a few years now and have never had a single gripe. Another consideration, being a frugal New England Yankee, Overstock's shipping rates make great sense.
