Now, for my flashback card, which is actually my very first post when I debuted my blog back in September 2009. The die cut I used was the Sizzix 'sizzilit' embossed heart die cut, which I cut from silver paper. I can't believe I've been blogging almost 3 years now. I had been scrapbooking for about ten years prior to that but really just got started into stamping around the same time I began blogging. I didn't have a lot of die cuts or stamps back then. I didn't cringe so much when I discovered this was my first use of die cuts on a card, especially when I saw a couple cards I had made after this one! YIKES! You will also note that my original blog name was SnapScrap&Dazzle, watermarked on the photo of my card. A lot has changed in my blogging and stamping for me, including my blog name, as you see. I also now have my own craft studio at home bursting full of stamping and crafting supplies!
Enjoy your 'hopping' on the blog hop. From here, your next stop will be with Amy. And, in case you got here first, here is the list of designers in order, beginning with the 'home' spot, Flashback Friday:

So, after enjoying seeing all of our posts through blog hopping, peruse through your own blog archive, find that very first card using a die cut, and play along with us this week at Flashback Fridays. Can't wait to see what everyone finds!
