In the Designer's Words: "I love to die cut, but sometimes I feel like my die cuts are, well, boring. I was stuck in a rut with them; every time I would cut some, they would be all one color or just cut from patterned paper… Nothing really out of the box or new! So, I gave the Therm O Web Adhesive Pen a try to decorate my die cut!"
