It's Alterations time again! Many of you have already purchased and began playing with your Alterations Bigz Dies, Movers & Shapers Dies, and Decorative Strips.
This video by Tim Holtz gives excellent tips and techniques on not only cutting with these fabulous dies, but also maintenance! Check out Tim's blog HERE for endless creative inspiration.
The Tim Holtz Alterations Dies are compatible with any of the Sizzix Bigz Machines (Big Kick, Big Shot, Big Shot Express, Big Shot Pro) as well as the Cuttlebug Machine. And...Tim's Sizzix Machine is due to be released mid July 2010!
Other Sizzix accessories you'll need are the Big Shot Clear Cutting Pads (for cutting Bigz dies, Movers and Shapers Dies, Decorative Strips, and Embossing with Texture Fades) and the On The Edge Cutting Plates (for cutting with On The Edge dies). Also, for embossing with the Texture Fades, you'll need the Big Shot White Platform Base. A helpful tool for die maintenance is the Tim Holtz Craft Pick by Tonic. Get those little "leftover" pieces of material out of your dies before you use them again!
More good news, we have shipped out all of the PREORDERED TEXTURE FADES THIS WEEK! (Some of you may have already received yours - woohoo!). The video shows cool tips and techniques on the Texture Fades as well!
The Tim Holtz Alterations Sizzix line can cut and/or emboss many materials. Highlighted in the video below are Cork, Core'dinations Paper, Ten Seconds Studios Metal, and even the packaging from Grungeboard! Yes, you can go GREEN and reuse your packaging with awesome results!
I hope you enjoy this video from Tim and are inspired to fire up your machines!
