I have been having tons of fun playing with this set.  The options are endless: birds, flowers, sailboats, water… a quick search on Pinterest and you will find an incredible offering of ideas, and it’s only been available for 2 weeks!

I can’t wait to get my hands on the new Big Shot platform which significantly helps with the details thinlits such as these ones.
