All-new die-cutting and embossing Alterations products offer fresh creative options
LAKE FOREST, Calif. (April 25, 2016) – Mixed-media artist Tim Holtz® and lifestyle brand Sizzix® have extended their artistic collaboration with a new Alterations™ die-cutting and embossing product assortment for Tim’s motorized Vagabond™ 2 Machine.
Leading the launch are four chemically-etched, wafer-thin Thinlits™ die sets that capture Tim’s eclectic style with gearheads, stenciled numbers, stitched rectangles and mixed-media patterns. Steampunk lovers can enjoy gears and numbers in differing styles for enhanced creativity, while five different sized rectangles and two borders allow for layering possibilities. Back by popular demand is a new mixed-media Thinlits die set that features brick, crackle and typewriter background shapes.
Makers will enjoy versatile new Bigz™ steel-rule dies that cut a dapper silhouette and detailed gears from thicker materials such as chipboard, cork, grungeboard™, heavy cardstock and leather. Two Bigz XL dies feature a new typewriter-themed uppercase and lowercase alphabets, ideal for altered art, journaling and mixed-media projects.
Three Texture Fades™ Embossing Folders in “Herringbone,” “Houndstooth” and “Tailored” patterns give enhanced dimension to any ordinary cardstock, paper, metallic foil or vellum.
The April 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.
