While I love my recent purchase, it did come missing one of the five dies in the set I ordered. I have been able to make the bow center myself, but it was a bit of a bummer to have a piece missing. The bows are so fun to make and I cannot stop making them!!!
I purchased the die set for the bow and find myself using the camera die on my pages for project life and scrapbook pages. Makes a great embellishment...easy to remove the paper:)
I like the idea of the bow-tie die and will use it often. I don't see the connection between it and the camera die included, except for the purpose of increasing the price. I would never buy the camera die, which makes the cost of the bow tie die a little expensive. I will use it, however, and give away the other portion of the package.
I like the bow and the camera, but they are a bit hard to use. It definitely helps to either rub the dies with wax paper first or cut with wax paper and scrapbook paper at the same time. Also there is a nice video on youtube with Maggie Holmes, showing how the camera goes together.
