Gotta Love New Toys!

And of course I am talking about scrapbooking toys!!  I went to work today and had a lovely time with the ladies at Catchy Crafts creating cute tags.  Then I went shopping!!  As you do when in a large scrapbooking store.  And I have been wanting one of these babies since seeing them released at CHA last year.

The GRAND CALIBUR.  It cuts larger Nesties - AWESOME!!

So I bought the Labels One dies home to play with too and as soon as I got home I cracked open the box and started playing immediately (not like some toys I have brought home before, ah hum one of which is STILL in it's box!!  But we won't mention that.)  I love it, I love it, I love it.  Want to see what I made?  In the matter of only an hour, I whipped up this journal.  It measures approx. 6 1/2" x 6 1/2" in size and so fun.

I embellished the front with paper from Stampin Up, pleated ribbon, a doilie, seam binding ribbon and an organza rose.  

And inside the pages are all varied, from pale grey paper to music paper to more SU paper.

Can't wait to play with these dies in my scrapbooking.
Thanks for stopping by,
