Default Sizzix Old Yellow Camera die

Good Morning, My mom found this die at a yard sale. I know it's really popular but why are people crazy for it? Are there any great ideas for using it floating around so that I can let her know? I don't see any ideas when I google...

Thank you very much.

Several of the stamp companies are featuring cameras and camera dies. Spellbinders, Tim Holtz and My Favorite Things are some I can think of right now. Your mom could maybe able use some of their ideas and modify them to use the Sizzix die.

Can be used for vacation, graduation or any special occasion themes. There are lots of camera related sentiments I.e. Smile, Just say cheese, etc available.

Do a Google or SplitCoast search and I am sure lots of samples will show up. Good luck!

Thank you, those are good ideas. I just wanted to make sure there wasn't anything unusual to use the die for, you know, like some punches you can use as vases as an example.

I saw this picture online (with a photo in the center of the camera cutout) and was trying to figure out how I could recreate it free-form - without the camera die. Thought you might like to see it.

Hmmm, great ideas. I like the idea of the picture in the lens, thanks for sharing.

Yes, thank you for sharing that photo. I appreciate your time to do it. I'll send it to my mom so that she can see it too. :0)
