Sizzix Beachside Ensemble


Hello Blogosphere!

How’s it going?! I’ve had the beach on my mind since our trip to Florida this Spring! I meant to post this video tutorial last month, but my little dog tripped on my computer’s power cord sending the thing crashing to the ground. ALL of my photos & video footage is lost :( The dog survived! LOL!

For this Video Tutorial, I’m using Sizzix Dies by Sharyn Sowell & my NEW Sizzix Big Shot Plus Machine:
