Great News!! You can PREORDER the new Tim Holtz Sizzix Alterations Dies and Texture Fades NOW!! There are lots of Holiday Motifs - Halloween and Christmas so you will want to order yours now to be sure you get your dies before the holidays! Sizzix, with their infinite planning wisdom, will probably still run out before the end of the year and some dies won't be available again until they are rerun in January!
All pictures are courtesy of Tim Holtz's Blog - please make sure you check it out HERE! He gives great insight on the many uses of these outstanding dies and embossing folders!
I am completely blown away by this release, as I am sure you will be. There are so many new goodies, so many creative uses, and so much inspiration!
For example, the die to the left is a new Movers & Shapers die called Tag & Bookplates. At first glance...it is AWESOME!!! Look a little closer.......and it is EVEN MORE AWESOME!!! (awesomer, awesomest, the creme de la creme, ce magnifique, totally rad, etc etc.) You get the point;)
This die was designed by Tim to handle so many details. First of all, the Tag that it cuts out is a standard #8 size - the kind Tim uses for the 12 Tags of Christmas among various other projects. Now you can cut your own tags out of leftover manila folders, cardstock, cardboard, grungeboard, grungepaper, sticky-back canvas, cork, metal sheets, and even fabric! You will never run out of tags and the reinforcement cuts out too!!! The die set includes 2 Bookplates (oval and rectangle) which are beautiful. The bonus is, the leftover pieces from inside the bookplates fit perfectly in Tim's Ornate Plates!!! Now that is what I call attention to detail!
My favorites are the Paper Rosette, the Snow Flurries On the Edge Die, the Iron Gate On the Edge Die, the Chip Block Alphabet, Reindeer Flight, Tattered Leaves, Branch Tree & Tall Pines Texture Fades, the Photo Corners (Baroque and Ornamental), the Postcard & Sheet Music Texture Fades and the Merry Christmas & Vintage Holiday Texture Fades. Ok, Ok, so I have a little trouble narrowing down my favorites....oh well, I bought a lottery ticket today - wish me luck;)
