Foiling with TODO from Create and Craft ~ 1st Attempt

Forever I have had a love affair with thin metal dies.  I have amassed quite a collection........  The TODO machine from Create & Craft TV allows me to take my diecutting to a whole new level :)  This is my 1st attempt at using my TODO...... Because of the help and advice I received from my crafting buddy, Rebecca, and the crafters in the TODO Facebook group,  I was successful on very first experiment with my new toy :)  My only regret is I didn't purchase the TODO months ago. The TODO is supposed to be an all-in-one diecutting machine....... The only function I have tried is foiling my diecuts which i cut with my trusty Big Shot.........  I am happy with the results of my 1st TODO Experiment :)  I can't wait to start foiling my thin metal dies and the diets from Cricut Explore :)

Zentangle Feather by Nancy Babb............ Marion Smith Heart of Gold Planner, 1Canoe2 Planner

I ordered this planner back in December........ Aqua is my color........  I wanted something very special for the cover.  Took me a few months to find just what I wanted!!!  Leave it to my artist friend, Nancy Babb of Not Just Any Bee - Doodle Art to create the perfect Zentangle feather to adorn the cover of my A5 planner from Marion Smith.  The design was a "piece of cake" to cut on my Cricut Explore.    I loved the way the feather cut so perfectly and weeded so easily, I cut another for the title page of my 1Canoe2 planner.  Thanks so much, Nancy, for such a beautiful gift.............  I will find so many things your Zen Feather design will only make more beautiful :)
