Those who know me, know how I love butterflies. This video is great as it explains the difference between thinlets, framelits and how to use them with the big shot. My only other suggestion is to prime each of the thinlets first (fine detailed dies) with running them through on a dryer sheet and plain paper between the plates. The plain photo copy paper prevents the film from the dryer sheet getting onto your cutting plate. Once primed it puts a film on the thinlet and this makes it so easy to fall off the card when cutting butterflies out. This can be used on any of the fine detail dies. If your die does not pop out easily with the fine pieces just add a sheet of paper or card. This is called a shim. You put this on the outside on the top of the cutting plate. It can be used over and over and it adds thickness to the sandwich of plates going through and the added pressure will cut the detail better and allow it to easily poke out. Hope this helps but if you want help let me know.

This bag is so cute. You can make many variations once you get the bag making off pat you can scor a line on the top instead of making holes and fold the top part of the bag out making a nice trim, put handles on with card and brads instead of the ribbon, have ribbon but as handles, decorate the bags with flowers, leaves, bows etc. Such a handy tool for NZD $39. Even found a way of making boxes with a lid with this bag maker. It is awesome
This video is by the very talented Deb Valder who I give total credit for this. Deb explains really well how to make a perfect bow. As a lot of customers struggle with making bows I thought I would put this up for you to watch. Thanks so much Deb, you do make some great videos.

Price is NZ$32.95. There is a co-ordinating stamp set with months, splotches to decorate but if you choose to caligraphy the months and use other stamps you have you can decorate and there are stickers and letters, ribbon and allsorts to decorate as well.
