March Tag- 2013

Just under the wire, i am sneaking in with Tim's tag from March. Tomorrow morning he will be posting his april tag and I just now finished my March tag. I had to make the grass from my Martha Stewart scissors as I got my die a couple days ago and when I went to cut it in my Vagabond, it locked up and the motor was dead in mid-stream. An hour and a half later of tears and swearing, I repeatedly powered down and back on and ran a hair at a time until I got it backed out. Last week I ruined my brand new matchbook die in there along with the cutting pads and crease pas and still don't know if they are sending me a new one or not. I sent pictures after talking to them on the phone, but haven't heard a word back. Now this! I don't think I will be replacing my Vagabond and it actually has had very little use as it is over in the corner so my Big Shot is just handier to use. I also made my own flowers instead of using the metal foliage ones. Had to use a Simon Says banner die as my tattered banners has gone missing as well. Just not my month I guess!

Hi Kathy, I had this problem with the TH tag die plate, the blades lifted almost out of the foam. I carefully pushed the blade back in and it looked fine but I returned it to the shop where I'd bought it and they replaced it after they tried it in their own machine and it did the same with them. Fault in manufacturing it I guess. Your Easter bunny tag is lovely, love the background.

That's a real shame about your Vagabond. I'm still working with a Cuttlebug. And I wished I had those scissors last nite. But since I didn't I got to dig out that pleated paper. Love your version of the tag. April's looks interesting. I have no luck with the paints so I doubt if I'll buy them. But I love the distress stains.
