Fiskars FUSE Creativity System ~ More Info

Die cut and letterpress in one pass.............


I am wondering if the new dies will work with the equipment I already have...... a Big Shot, a Big Shot Pro, Vagabond or a Cuttlebug?  I have had such poor luck with Fiskars border punches..... I am hesistant to jump on the bandwagon and invest in such a pricey toy by Fiskars.

Vintage Valise Mini Album ~ Tim Holtz ~ Vintage Lunch Box

The mini album cover was cut with the Tim Holtz Vintage Valise Sizzix die. The front of the mini album was cut from leather to create the vintage luggage look. The album was done in Graphic 45 Renaissance Faire paper. The binder was created from scratch with the Tim Holtz binder rings.  The tags are from 7 Gypsies.  The vintage lunch box was altered using Ranger alcohol inks.  The coin envelopes, pockets, and dividers were sized and cut on a Silhouette Cameo.
