Today I am getting ready to teach a class in Dreamweaver stencils. Find them at http://www.dreamweaverstencils.com/ . Now, those of you who know about stencils, know that trying to deboss some of them by hand is tedious and gets your hand very tired. But if you have a Vagabond (an electric die-cutting machine you can see in action here: http://sizzixblog.blogspot.com/ ), it's breeze! All you need to do is make a stack of stencil, paper, and soft pad between the cutting plates on your platform, and push a button to run it through.
How easy is that?
Gotta run--almost time to go to class!
