Bigkick by Sizzix

Hi everyone I am now the proud owner of the Big Kick by Sizzix
I can't say enough about this die cut and embossing tool
I found that while it is much bigger than my Cuttlebug I like
the fact that it does not move when using it!
I also found that I can get a better and cleaner cut for materials(fabric)
than with my Cricut Expression or my Cuttlebug....
I still plan on keeping my Cuttlebug for crops
and mainly use the Big Kick for at home!
Best of all I was able to get this at Michael's
for half price..$50
I am so glad I did
My Cricut will always be my go to die cutting Machine
but I now have a new crafting toy
that I plan on getting plenty of use out of........
Happy Crafting Everyone and thanks for
Stopping By!

Trying my hand at a new craft!

My sister actually is the one that designs jewelry and has been trying to get me to make some bracelets but I know that I don't have the patience's that she has to make the intricate designs that she does...this a spotlight on her work.....However I do like making earrings and sometimes I will make a necklace or two. What prompt me to make these earrings was because I cut my hair and I found my ears looked a little naked....I had plan on buying a few pairs if the prices were right but even the simplest pair of earrings were just too expensive to me! So here is some of the beautiful bracelets that my sister has made and then below those are my earrings

Happy Crafting everyone!
