Thank you for the lovely response to yesterday's post,
Yana's cards are stunning and show such a great way of using the dies.
Today's card is another new UK release and it looks very much in keeping
with our country - a cute cottage, Cozy Cottage.
The die set comes with the little shaped pieces that I have added to the thatched
roof but cut in green, they make lovely tufts of grass!
Cozy Cottage is available to pre-order on the website here.
Now to hopefully answer some die questions.
Dies are discontinued for a variety of reasons, firstly it would be impossible to keep
the entire inventory of dies, new dies are introduced, styles change so some definitely
have to be discontinued - I know it's often sad though.
Another main reason is sales.
Even though we may find that a die is extremely popular in this country,
it may not be abroad so the the sale percentage drops. I guess, like all businesses it
is impractical to stock a product that is not selling as well as others.
The good news is that Spellbinders are aware that we get upset when certain
dies are discontinued, they take note and an example is Grand Squares,
they realised these were really popular in the UK and have now brought out
the 6 x 6 Matting Basics.
So take heart, you may see your favourites reappear.
In between keep an eye out on the Pre-Loved section on the website,
you may find the die you have been seeking there :)
A bit of sunshine yesterday so Elliott and I took Bella out to the woods.
It was very muddy but she didn't mind, here she is sporting a red jumper -
Lady in Red!
Also delighted to see bluebells are sprouting between all the fallen leaves.
Take care friends - back tomorrow for Friday Die Day.
