Friends, it feels like I’ve been sitting on this news since FOREVER. Little snippets of my excitement over this news have snuck out through these little typing fingers out at various stopping points in the ether (I know that drives y’all nuts), but it’s literally been killing me not letting this screaming banshee cat out of the bag!
Folks! I’m on the Sizzix design team now!!! I have adored Sizzix since I began papercrafting way back when. The sturdy, versatile Bigz dies won my heart immediately, and ever since, my love for this brand has expanded and deepened. Why is it I’m referring to a manufacturer in a manner reserved for life partners? LOL!
As far as design teams go, this development is a realization of a very big goal for me in my crafting journey. I’m deeply grateful to be working with Sizzix in this capacity and elated to share the news with you today. So shall I share with you a few projects of mine that are all out Sizzix? The styles I’ve grown especially fond of as of late are mixed media grunge and vintage. So I’ll share some of those with ya’.
If you follow me, you probably already saw this project. But I’m so excited about how this most recent layout turned out and I’d like to share it with new visitors hopping over from the Sizzix blog. This one was made with a new “Doily and Doily Border” Thinlits Sizzix Die, and my go to font, “Typeset” die.
Video tutorial here. I couldn’t bear to throw the last doily I had altered in the bottomless pile of scraps, so I made a grungy card with it and added more die-cuts using the “Love, hearts & Border,” Thinlits die set from Sizzix.
I call this card below, “Pop ‘N Cuts Go Grunge.”
Video tutorial here.
This tag that I shared when I guest blogged for Sizzix in December showcases some of the extensive work I’ve done with hot glue.
Video tutorial here. I recently shared the art journal page below over at Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft.
A liberating way to create compositions just by randomly slapping down die-cut shapes and finding paths within those shapes. All of these shapes are Sizzix. Video tutorial here.
I also am a great lover of romance and nostalgia. This is a shaped vintage hat card I made awhile back that pops up on Pinterest every now and then.
I blogged about it here. The ornament below was lovingly made with a Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die.
Friends, this is a dream come true! I hope you’ll stick around and follow me at my various homes in the ether as I get to share with you for this next year tons of inspirations and projects using my beloved Sizzix dies!
