Today’s post is slightly different because rather than showing you a new collection from Lisa Horton Crafts – I would like to link you to various resources that will allow you to make the most of the bargains that you will be able to pick up on Create and Craft TV.
Create and Craft USA 9pm/9.45pm on Thursday 22nd July
Create and Craft UK 9am/2.15pm on Friday 23rd July
Slimline Cutting Dies – these have become increasingly popular over the past twelve months. The advantage of Lisa’s dies are that the frames and the layers all interchange.

Amazing Layered Dies – This is a brilliant word die and stamp set. Originally I worked with the HAPPY set ( which is not on the show) however you can still glean some ideas on how to use the set and incorporate the word AMAZING instead.

I have talked about card frames, backgrounds and different word dies. Next, I will talk about flora dies to embellish your cards.
Build a Bloom Die Set – this was one of the earlier die sets in Lisa’s range. You can tell this because of the colour of the dies which are green. The good quality is just the same though.

I set myself a challenge to see how many combinations of flowers I could make. For further details read –

Through the Grapevine and From Little Acorns – these two die sets have more of an Autumnal feel however the elements can be used for any season.
