One huge exciting news they announced was SU! and Sizzix teaming up. They will be offering a manual die-cutting system...The Sizzix Big Shot, and dies from Stampin'UP!, where you can create shapes, tags, envelopes and more. What I like about this machine is it will work with 50 different kinds of materials, from paper, plastic, fabric to metal. Here are a couple pictures I took of some examples they shared with us. I can't wait to order mine!
Here's another picture from when UPS surprised us with a FREE stamp set which they donated the costs for. Everyone went ballistic as you can see from all the confetti :o)
