Crafters to experience newest technology and added bonuses through latest Alterations items
LAKE FOREST, Calif. (July 21, 2014) – Tim Holtz® has officially kicked off mixed media inspiration this summer with his newest Sizzix®Alterations™ die-cutting and embossing product assortment.
Leading Tim’s continued product innovation is a trio of steel-rule Bigz™ dies with complementing Texture Fades™ Embossing Folders featuring layered bee, butterfly and dragonfly designs. The steel-rule blade inside Bigz dies cut these detailed insects from a variety of materials including cardstock, chipboard, grungeboard™ and mat board for use in altered art, cardmaking, mixed media, and scrapbooking projects. Crafters can use the matching Texture Fades Embossing Folders to emboss and shade in further detail on their dimensional die cuts or apply them as single embossing folders to embellish any project.
Also featured in the release for Tim’s motorized Vagabond™ Machine for Sizzix are three new ShadowPress™ Debossing Folders sets that allow for creative versatility in adding simple drop shadowed fonts in “Expedition,” “Family & Friends” and “Sentiments” sets onto cards, mixed media items, photographs and scrapbook pages. The mimicked letterpress designs can be further enhanced with ink, marker or color tools to produce a striking look.
Other key releases include friendly sea life shapes from a Bigz die and Movers & Shapers™ magnetic insert die; three Framelits™ die sets with corresponding rubber stamps to instantly create arrow, compass and Parisian elements; one Sizzlits® Decorative Strips die that cuts confetti of varying sizes; a Bigz XL die to fashion block lowercase alphabet letters from a wide range of materials; and a pair of Texture Fades Embossing Folders for elevating ordinary surfaces with embellished edgy bubble and wave patterns.
The July 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.
