Crafters can gain fresh inspiration with the latest Alterations products
LAKE FOREST, Calif. (Feb. 9, 2016) – Fresh off a successful showing at the Craft and Hobby Association Mega Trade Show 2016, mixed-media artist Tim Holtz® has expanded his innovative Sizzix® Alterations™ die-cutting and embossing product assortment for his motorized Vagabond™ 2 Machine.
Leading the exciting release is a miniature version of Tim’s popular Bird Crazy and Crazy Things Framelits™ die sets. The newly combined set includes 51 dies to cut and layer the mini birds with detailed body pieces and seasonal accessories. An all-new Crazy Cats Framelits die set features five fantastic felines with accompanying shapes. The set complements the Crazy Things dies and stamps. The two new die sets are designed to complement their matching Stampers Anonymous Cling Mount Stamps.
Two new Bigz™ dies and one Frameworks™ die celebrate the versatility of steel-rule technology by cutting frame, mosaic and crosshatch shapes from thicker materials such as cardstock, chipboard, cork, fabric, grungeboard™ and leather for use in mixed-media projects. Adding enhanced dimension to an array of projects are two Texture Fades™ Embossing Folders in “Pinwheel” and “Plus Sign” patterns.
Capturing the beauty of nature, two chemically-etched Thinlits™ die sets add detailed wildflower and butterfly designs, while three additional Thinlits die sets make hand-crocheted inspired doilies and lace elements that evoke the vintage style Tim is well-known for.
Makers can document everyday moments with four new Thinlits word dies in intricate block and script fonts that include daily and calendar words such as “note2self”, “today” and “weekend” for mixed-media inspiration.
Completing the Thinlits offerings are faux-stitched oval shapes and a new alphabet marquee set to bring eclectic style to any project.
The February 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.
