I’m excited to announce the introduction of more dies for creative crafters everywhere! The newest additions to my Favorite Things Collection are perfect for cards and tags, party favors, gift wrap, and party decor ~ and they all feature the beautiful quality craftsmanship that makes Sizzix first in its class.
This collection offers a variety of different types of dies for every craft project: steel-rule Bigz dies (perfect for die cutting paper, chipboard and fabric), Thinlits (which capture incredible detail), and Textured Impressions Embossing Folders (for beautiful embossed and letterpress effects). Used individually or in combination, these dies are ready to embellish and personalize to your heart’s content!
Inspired by a Victorian greeting card, the Heart Pocket is a sweet way to send a messages any time of year, or to make a treasured keepsake for your wall. Because it’s a Bigz XL die, it cuts fabric beautifully. So save those embroidered fabric scraps for this project! Included with the heart and pocket are trim pieces and a miniature coordinating heart mini card.
I was enamored by the opulent costumes in the movie Marie Antoinette, where silk bows embellish gowns, curtains and lampshades. Now you can make your own 3-dimensional French Bows for gorgeous gift toppers, garlands and cards. This Bigz die is versatile and quick to assemble, and can be styled as a traditional bow, or as a manly bow tie that’s perfect for Father’s Day or Dad’s birthday!
The Notepad Holder is designed to hold a standard size adhesive notepad. Now you can quickly make personalized party favors or hostess gifts for your next celebration. Embellish using the medallion and butterfly included with the die, or add stickers, ribbons, buttons, or vintage lace.
Inspired by vintage Moroccan lighting, the Damask Ornament is beautiful all year ‘round. This versatile, classic Thinlits die opens up a world of creative possibilities.
Make elegant three-dimensional decorations for summer parties or Christmas ornaments. Use a single Damask Ornament die cut and layer it on handmade cards and layouts. Die cut foam sheets to make your own elegant rubber stamps. Or, die cut card stock and adhere to paper to make your own stencils for decorative scrapbook papers or unique gift wrap.
If you love decorating and embellishing gifts, you'll have fun with this fabulous Peony! Measuring a grand 4.5” in diameter, it’s the same size as actual garden Peonies (only longer-lasting). And because it’s a Bigz die, you have so many creative options. Use tissue paper and make semi-translucent, layered floral gift topper; or use a variety of wool, felt, fabrics and velvet ribbons to make a stunning embellishment for your winter coat.
With five new sets of Textured Impressions, all designed to coordinate with my dies, you’ll have fun adding elegant textures to every project!
I’m sure you’ll have lots of fun creating new ways to use these dies. Look for them at sizzix.com as well as other online suppliers and craft stores nationwide.
