These items to be found on a desk very, very near to this computer. Do not be afraid, I'm not going over to the dark side. Or indeed the seven shades of wee wee side. I mean, now that the Distress Inks come in actual colours, they're really very nice. No, I'm not going to become an alterer or steampunk artist overnight; mostly because I can't do it - it's a style I can merely aspire to. I can, however, appreciate a good product. And very often do. The ticket shaped die has my name on it - some people know that anything vaguely stationery related will eventually end up in my stash and I can see this getting a lorra lorra use. The bird and cage die are bigger than I thought they'd be, and I don't really know why I had to have it, but there. I did. Embossing folders because, well, Mr Dunnit thinks it's my mission to own them all, and a gal should never disappoint her husband, huh. I was also taken with another die from the range - the idea of being able to cut a key hole shape in anything..but as far as I can tell from the packaging, I can't - the keyhole die will only work if fitted magnetically inside Sizzix's specific shaped dies (sold seperately of course). Please put me right if I've misunderstood this. Because of course, if I have understood correctly, what's the point of the trio of hole dies that are for sale at a price that makes a Big Bite or other long reach punch a really viable option? What have I missed here; I know I'm really late to look this range over so I know it's safe to ask here - someone will explain. Or do I just live with that creeping feeling that Sizzix thinks we're all zipped up the back and stuffed with dollar bills?
