Ever have one of those days where it seems like everything goes wrong. Well, yesterday was one of those days. My Vagabond died. Just quit working. It was less than 3 years old and I really only started using it about 7 months ago since I had been using my Cuttlebug for everything. My hands have been getting very tired from cranking on the Cuttlebug so I switched to the Vagabond which has a motor, thus no manual cranking. I called Ellison, the makers of the Vagabond, and they were willing to try to fix it for a minimum of $160. Of course I would have to ship the 15 lb. Vagabond to them in California (I live in Maryland, why couldn't they be on the East Coast?). I looked online and found I could buy a new one at Amazon.com for $149 with free shipping. So I did that.
These two cards were made using the Spellbinders die called Diamond Effects. The first card I cut out the outside frame first with the inner frame and oval inside, taping the two together. The second card I just cut out the outside frame which I like a lot better without the inside frame.
