April 2020 Die Blog Launch/ Endless Options


Hello bloggers!  I am hoping that the April blog launch will bring a smile to your face and brighten your day.  I am sure that you know the drill by now, but in case you didn't read the message on the blog yesterday, not only am I giving away a set of each of the dies that you have a chance to win by leaving a comment on the posts, but I am also giving away an entire set of all eighteen dies to one lucky winner for this blog launch as well!  I will post the list of winners on the blog on April 15th.  Don't forget to leave your name on your post and make it memorable so that you know it was your name drawn out!  Add your surname initial or the city you live in or even make it a funny alias if you prefer, they all work fine!  We are starting out this launch with a new concept that I am very excited to share with you!  Introducing the Endless Options Collection and we are starting with the Delilah Background.  Now the idea behind these dies is that there is a background and a matching edger die set.  Both sets can be used independently of each other, but if you combine them together you will see that you have endless options you can do with them!  It will become more apparent as the blog launch continues how they work.  If you like this set, just leave a comment and pop back by at noon to see the matching edger set!  All for now. Sue x

Hi Sue. Thanks for starting your new launch, your post yesterday made my eyes water so a big thank you for helping this to happen and bring some normality into this poorly world, my local hospital it full of this horrible virus where a crafting friend /nurse works so I hope she finds time to pop in. It's all about craft during the launch I promise. And what a beautiful way to start. It makes it more exciting to see them without spoilers via emails, looking forward to the rest of the days posts. Take care, staying safe, be happy 🌻 xx

June Smith said...

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, well I am intrigued to know how the 'Endless Options' collection works, I am definitely liking the Delilah die set, and can I see some snipping around to make the sample...such a very pretty pattern on it.

Good luck to everyone on this blog launch, and please, come back every day and comment and view Sue's blog, it is a lovely community and the samples are amazing, Sue is such a very talented designer and this is shown in all her samples.

How generous Sue is to give away the whole collection, good luck everyone x

Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

Cdteach said...

Thanks for starting this new launch - totally agree with your thinking. You are right about trying to lift peoples spirits, since many crafters I know are older and lots have health issues, so while they may be used to staying home this will help to bring a smile to some of their faces.
Love this die and it's great when you can use a die to create a background or cut into it to make borders.

Suzzette Yandle said...

A lovely play with this new Endless Options Collection. I like how you have side stepped the outside edges mutiple times with part of the background and popped them up from the main design. I see you have shadowed the pieces with black as well. The main focal element of this Delilah die reminds me of beautiful galloon lace. And the side pieces look like French Ribbon lace. Both of these type laces I used to sew with when making heirloom garments by machine. I love lace and I miss making heirloom garments. Congratulations on another wonderful die release. Hugs

Hi Sue
Wow these are different. How lovely. A great start to your latest fabulous launch. Like many others, I am so grateful that I am able to craft to pass the very long days. My husband and I are self isolating due to age and health issues, so any extra dies to play with would be most welcome. Keep safe everyone.
