  1. Wow. I've just had a little wander through your posts. (I came over from Tim's blog.) Your tags are AMAZING!! You are incredibly talented. And I can't believe it takes you less than an hour to create works of art like these--it would take me THREE WEEKS!! ;-) Thank you SO much for sharing step-by-steps too!

    PS: I hope you're an instructor somewhere. I would totally take a class!!! =D

  23. Great job! Thank you for sharing. I've worked a small amount with balsa and wood veneers and because they're so thin, they've cracked. How did you keep yours from splitting and cracking?

    1. The key is to use a Crease Pad (this is a Sizzix product) in place of the cutting pad that will contact the die blade. You can see another example of this on http://digthatcrazychick.blogspot.ca/2015/02/tic-tac-toe.html
