Crafters can enjoy adding more imaginative designs to their next mixed-media projects
LAKE FOREST, Calif. (March 20, 2015) – A fresh new assortment of creative products have arrived for the Sizzix® Alterations™ die-cutting and embossing line for use with the Tim Holtz® motorized Vagabond™ Machine.
Leading the latest blend of innovation, Tim’s new Bird Silhouette Bigz™ die and Wave Frameworks™ die enable crafters to design with materials diverse as chipboard, fabric, felt, grungeboard™ and leather using a steel-rule cutting blade.
Building on the popularity of his Tattered Florals die, a miniature version arrives with the Tiny Tattered Florals Thinlits die set that effortlessly creates eight dimensional flowers and seven leaves with its own quilling tool. The differing petal shapes scale from small to large, allowing for the creation of more realistic, wrapped florals.
Celebrating the deep meaning of friendship are two wafer-thin, chemically-etched Thinlits™ die sets that cut words such as “genuine,” “hope” and “moments” in block and script fonts, while the Possibilities Framelits™ die set with Stamps allows crafters to infuse steampunk style on a variety of projects with perfectly cut and stamped images.
Enhancing papercrafting projects with rich textures are two Texture Fades™ Embossing Folders in tile and diamond patterns.
Additionally, these creative offerings expand upon Tim’s April release of a Bigz die, a single Framelits with Stamps set, four Thinlits die sets and two Texture Fades that feature celebratory sentiments, watering cans, as well as mesh, star and bullseye patterns for an array of uses.
The May collection of Tim Holtz Alterations products is now available in local craft boutiques and major retail craft chains around the country. For more information, visit www.Sizzix.com/home.
The Tim Holtz Alterations line of products is a creative assortment that brings together many mixed-media dies and embossing products for countless creative applications with the motorized Sizzix Vagabond Machine. Each element was specifically designed to work with Tim’s other products to inspire paper crafters and mixed-media artists to discover their true creativity.
