Sizzix Texture Boutique Beginners Kit // Die-Cutting // Product Review*

Hello my fellow Crafters! If you haven't noticed, I have been Tweeting alot this week about my first ever product review. I have been really excited to share it with you all, so here it is...
 After seeing a tweet asking where all us craft bloggers were hiding (are we that rare?) my friend Hannah replied suggesting me - what a good pal! This then led to me being asked if I wanted to try out a die-cutting machine. Now I'll be completely honest, I had to Google this as I was totally clueless, but once I had figured it out I was really keen to give it a go for myself. I was sent the Sizzix Texture Boutique Beginners Kit which retails at £30 in HobbyCraft. I wasn't sure what to expect but if, like me, you are a complete beginner I would highly recommend this kit. It's really simple to use and comes with everything you need to get started - or in my case, everything you need to get completely addicted!


This particular kit includes 1 card making machine, 2 embossing pads, 1 shim, 3 texture impressions embossing folders, 20 cards & envelopes, 40 sheets of cardstock in 10 different colours, 2 rub on sheets, 1 sandpaper sample and 1 project booklet. You're probably thinking the same as me...that's quite alot of stuff for £30! As well as getting the 91 piece kit for such a pleasing price, it is so great being able to create your own unique designs, making cards to give to people that aren't available in any stores. I personally think handmade cards are much more special and personal too. I have posted some photos below so you can see what designs I came up with - let me know what you think in the comments box below.

I got a little carried away!

If, like me, you enjoy trying out new things then this is definitely a fun crafty project to try out. And if you get really into it - again, like me - then Hobbycraft have such a wide range of other items you can purchase to expand your kit. Click here to see more. I already have my eye on some more texture impression embossing folders!

Have you ever done die-cutting before? What products would you recommend and do you have any handy tips? Let me know in the comments box below :)
