Marianne Creatables - New Bird Cage Dies to Die for!!!!

I love vintage looking birdcages and if I had my own house and space I would buy a lovely large one - don't know what I would use it for but I would have one!!!
Maybe I could put a plant or candles in one!!!

The closest thing for me would be the Tim Holtz Birdcage Die but it is quite thick and I don't think it would go through my Cuttlebug well.  If anyone has tried it using a Cuttlebug and had success, please let me know!!!  The lovely Claire aka wanna-b-rich over on MSE has kindly offered to cut me some with her die for the time being.  Have a look at her blog, she makes some fantastic things.

Today, I came across some new Marianne Creatable  Dies - Birdcages, 2 different styles called Morocco and Tunis.  It looks like they are due to be released anytime now and are priced at £10.99 and they can be used on the Cuttlebug!!

Here they are

They also have some lovely Bird of Paradise and Fantasy Bird dies which will go beautifully with them!!!  A few more things for my wish list I think!!!!

****Just seen the Marianne Dies on ebay for £9.45 with free postage - looks like they are released tomorrow!!!!****


  1. Hi Angie

    Thanks for the heads up re these dies, they are stunning. I too love birdcages, but could never have a bird as I'm terrified of them (weird huh?).

    Think these little beautys might find their way onto my wishlist;)

  2. Ooohhh these are gorgeous! I must not look, must not look... ;-)

  3. The bird cages are beautiful. I have been lucky enough to get one of them.
    Re: the Tim Holtz and the Cuttlebug - yes they do work.
