Over this next week, take a look at your dies and sentiments and see what you can create from your dies. Get more bang for your buck and S-T-R-E-T-C-H your dies!

What are the magnetic pieces that you display your cutting dies on? I need a way to organize mine
Thanks for all of your good tips
They are magnetic vent covers that I have cut down. I have a video that I can share with you – https://youtu.be/wVLf7T9OaWc
I was interested in purchasing the stitched label dies, but the link takes me to a site, where they are not shown. Are they still available?
Oh, I’m sorry but those dies retired in May.
