Let me rave about some dies that I am using the heck out of:
1) lawn fawn's stitched journaling card
This thing it awesome. Want to stick it in a pocket? Want to put it on card front? Want to cut out tiny repeating pattern anywhere? Want a tiny fishtail flag? Love tiny stitching detail? Yes to all of these. I love this die. I am afraid I will wear it out some how. I do own an use a Silhouette, but the pressure of the die when it indents the stitch lines just can't be mimicked. This tiny little die set is on trend and a great value. 

2) my favorite things stitched circles. Yes, I'm into to stitching right now but not sewing. This nested set has really great size circles for sentiments or other design elements. 

3) another one by mft: blueprints number 2 For the ribbon with stitches , a2 matte, and fishtail flag also with stitches. However, I just saw blueprints 13 and I think this our lucky number. So many great elements in one package- washi, mattes with stitching, nested circles, and flags with nice edges? I swoon.  And to top it off, an "anywhere" line stitching!? Heaven help us. This might just be the perfect blueprint.
