Wow, you really went to town with creating this month Jennifer! I’m crazy about these layering dies. I thought the layering stamp sets were amazing, but this is incredible to have layering dies.

Carol Melancon April 8, 2017 - 12:11 PM

Oh, my! I’ve already purchased several items from this release. I just wish “niece” and “nephew” were included in the Family Matters (or extras) set. My grandparents and parents have passed and I don’t have any children, but I DO have nieces, nephews, and grandnieces. Ah well. I’m excited by the possibilities the Cityscapes Cover dies offer for masculine cards; especially with the Engineers Rule Stamp set for my nephew. I’m hoping a Lawyers Rule set is in the future for one of my other nephews.

Debbie April 8, 2017 - 12:22 PM

This new release is fantastic! I think it’s my favorite so far and I have lots of Altenew products. Love the new layering dies and hope to order them soon.
