The 24 hour craft Event on HSN Wednesday was a huge success! We had so much fun getting to craft with you and demonstrate all of our new products. Mark your calendars for March 14th at 5am and 5pm because we will be back on HSN in 4 short days!
Today we are continuing our series of how to videos in celebration of National Craft Month. Get out your Wishful Thinking Cutting Dies everyone, it is time to make a special birthday card! The best part about our Wishful Thinking die set is that you can customize a card specific to your needs! Where else can you find a “Happy Mother’s Day to my Sister” card? The endless combination of words and dates make crafting with this set so much fun.
