Bird Crazy...

No, not those crazy birds! I'm crazy about the new intricate shape punch from Fiskars - I just find them the perfect size for my cards. Both of these cards were made with the birds punched in white, and sponged with distress inks





So I am off to another craft fair on Thursday - this time it's a retail show at the NEC, and I will stock up on the few basics that I need (that's the plan, it usually turns into a shopping frenzy, but I am resolute........), but my main reason for going along is to catch up with my Fiskars buddies, Caroline, who is my boss and over from Paris, Kath and Hina. 

And pull up a chair, make a coffee, here is a video I made for the facebook page - I wonder how many of you have this tool languishing in a drawer? When I finally got the hang of it (who knew you had to take that little orange thingy off, not me!) I use it all the time, so I hope it helps someone.....

  1. I love this bird punch, it's on my wishlist!

    I think there will be a lot of us blowing off the dust and getting our Shape Cutters out after watching your video, Enfys. :-) xx

  2. The bird cards are so sweet.
    I have a Shape cutter that is buried in a cupboard somewhere - perhaps I should hunt it out and make use of it.

  9. It is early morning and I could not have the sound on my computer, but this video is fabulous. I never did buy the Fiskar cutter because I did not know it would do so many things. I feel like that I have missed out! Thanks so much for the video.
