Excited to share my new AccuCut die with you

With everything going on these past few weeks I really haven't had a chance to share my news with you.   I'm excited to finally get to share my brand new AccuCut die (just being released now at winter CHA). 


If you know me at all, you know I'm a huge fan of "cooking and recipe" themed paper crafts.  I have always been totally inspired by the fantastic "retro" themed cooking stickers, stamps and images from Crafty Secrets, and I think this will be a fun complement to them.. so I'm thrilled about that.  A fun base with extra accessories to pull your project all together.   I think it will be fun for albums, layouts, cards, invitations, home decor.. all kinds of things.
It's a two die set and is available with or without holes. (  so if you are wanting to use a binding system you can also do that).
The pocket you see in the top right is sized to fit a standard index/recipe card.  So you get the base ( place mat piece), the pocket. and tab to attach to your recipe card.. OR to the side of your pages, the napkins to go under your silverware, a plate, shaker for salt and pepper, and the tabbed index card frame for adding a photo or journaling ect.

I was actually in such a hurry to get my project to AccuCut for CHA the day I took it in, that I didnt even get a photo of it. ( crazy I know... but then again..these past few weeks have been a ridiculous blur).  I will get a photo of it to share here, as soon as they are back from CHA.  I am in a process of creating another one, but no quite finished yet :(    I did create this card below using pieces from the die and Papers, stamps and images from Crafty Secrets.

I used the Pocket on the inside of my card to hold a gift card. 

Thank Goodness I to have a couple of photos from the album the talented Traci Armbrust (senior designer) at AccuCut created using my die.  She always does amazing work. Thankyou Traci!

I promise I'll have more sample using my die to share soooon~!

Off to cut and glue :)
