You can sharpen up your framelits and thinlits and breathe new life into them. Do you notice that sometimes when you run your card stock through the Big Shot with a framelit or thinlit, that the paper is not cut all the way through? This will happen to a thinlit more than a framelit due to the intricacies of the thinlit.

The Butterflies Thinlits are an example of an intricate die. The tiny cutouts for the butterfly wings, may over time, become dull and will not cut your card stock completely. It then becomes a hassle to get those cutouts to separate from the main die cut.
So, sharpen up!
I would love to say that I have an app for that, however I do have a video for that.
This video tells you the type of sandwich you need to make so you can get those framelits/thinlits cutting properly.
Did you know that you can also sharpen up your punches? Punch an image several times using tinfoil. This little tip will also get your punches to punch sharply.
