Using this die was a bit complicated but it helped to watch Tim Holtz's blog for cut out and assembly instructions. Most everything cut out nicely but a small piece of the foam from the die actually came out. I replaced it and stuck it down real well so it seems to be fine now.
Get it on sale because it's a bit pricey.
I love everything Tim Holtz, and I bought myself the Vintage Village and Bell tower. Here in Texas it's supposed to get really cold tomorrow after a perfect day, today. Can't wait for chocolate raspberry coffee, and to make village houses to give to our Thanksgiving hosts this year. THe days last a long time, and the Christmas village creations was pure genius on Tim's part. I have used all sorts of templates and hand-cutting and papier mache creations. Now I get to make mine from start to finish. Thanks Tim. Love and joy to you this holiday season.
Love, love, love this. Saw the house on Pinterest, found the u tube video for the alterations die for the snow, icicles, and window frames, then found scrapbook.com to order immediately. I could not find a u tube video for the basic vintage house, but I ordered any ways.....also saw the video using corrugated paper for the siding which is the way I constructed mine.
Waiting for the "snow die"to be back in stock to order.
Any previews of coming dies to alter the original dwelling? I want to be the first to know.......Tammy from Indiana
Wonderful die. Cut one just for a sample. Makes absolutely the cutest house in the whole world. Very easy to put together. Tim has a great You Tube tutorial. I want to get some houses done now so I can get his townhouse die when it comes out later this year. Can't wait to put my village out this holiday season.
Love this die but also needed the other die to attach the snow cover for roof and also the window coverings.
Just not the same without having them both.
They are wonderful to work with and I recommend them to all.
