When Eileen Hull, Brenda Pinnick and I teamed up to organize a massive Sizzix Blog Hop featuring two each of our dies, (3 for Eileen because we couldn't decide) I wasn't sure how it would go on my weeks. We each invited some of our designer friends to participate, so I only knew my handful of invitees personally. The rest of the list was comprised of amazing designers who craft in a host of mediums and a lot of them wouldn't classify themselves as primarily paper artists.
And even crafters who DO primarily work with paper don't necessarily have experience or interest in making pop-ups.
I've got a bit a specialty audience, I guess is what I'm saying.
And I know that.
So it was hard to let go and trust. I thought that participation would plummet on the weeks featuring my dies.
I was wrong.
Very, very wrong!
I am awed, humbled, and frankly a bit emotional about all the amazing projects posted this week using the Twist Cube die. You've just GOT to hop around and see them all! So much variety.
