This is the first Sizzlits die I have ever tried and I love it. As another reviewer pointed out all of the pieces are cut individually and can be placed where appropriate. It made even a clutz like me feel artistic! One thing I noted was that if I wanted to retain the texture on my Bazzill Basics cardstock I needed to put it upside down on the die or otherwise my Bigshot machine flattened it out. It may just be my lack of knowledge or skill, and that would be an issue with the acorn where the die scores it as part of the process, but I will share that info for others. I still love what this die did for the look of my layout.
Just love this die strip. The results are amazing and so autumnal! It would have been nicer to have separate elements, but I just keep passing the die through with my various papers. Now I'd like to find a video that helps me create beautiful autumn leaves using distress stain or alcohol inks.
I have been wanting this die for a while because it has a lot of components that can be used in other ways. Done in coral colors, the branch can be under sea coral. The leaves can go on other trees, etc... have fun with this one!
I was pleasantly surprised it was a little small than I expected. It will make great Thanksgiving cards next year as well as looking wonderful on a scrapbook page. Love it.
I was really looking forward to getting this die. But after using it I don't think I am as excited as I was. After running it through the Big Shot machine the leaves are so deeply embedded into the die it's hard to get them out. Most of the leaves have small pieces of paper stuck in them. I will continue to use it, but I am not really happy with it. The acorns are really hard to get out as well.
