Wow, the Sizzix Collection in the Stampin' Up! partnership has grown. We have a list of new products.
First in the Spring-Summer 2009 IB&C are the Bigz XL Dies. We have three new Bigz XL dies - Box #2 (p.194 #114518 $34.95), Bag w/Scallops (p.195 #114519 $34.95) and an exclusive Stampin' Up! Movers & Shapers Curly Label (p.195 #114506 $39.95). The SU! Movers & Shapers Curly Label Die will cut out a card size 4-1/4" x 11" with a Curly Label shaped window!! The best part of this is that you can move the Curly Label window wherever you want on the card before you cut it out. And it coordinates perfectly with the Curly Label Punch Bundle. You just stamp your image and punch it out using the Curly Label Punch and it fits right in the window area!! So, so awesome!!
Next, we have new Bigz Clear Dies in a Card, Telephone & Address (p.195 #114532 $19.95), Clear Circle (p.195 #114533 $19.95) and a Flower (p.195 #114534 $19.95). Each of these dies are clear and allow you to position the die so that you see exactly what you are cutting. The Card, Telephone & Address die coordinates with the Rolodex system. One of the projects we saw on stage was the Rolodex which was turned into a Recipe Box. Our Round Tab Punch was used to make the recipe tabs and each recipe was on one of the cards punched out using that die. What a great gift!!!! Again - love it!!!!
We have several new Bigz dies, one of which is the Stampin' Up! Beautiful Butterflies (p.196 #114507 $21.95). I think that the butterfly sure looks like the one on the front of the Fall-Winter 2008 IB&C!!
We also have a few new Sizzlits Decorative Strip Dies. The Stampin' Up! Billboard (p.198 #114510 $21.95) is an alphabet die which includes uppercase, lowercase and a few symbols in a block font. I believe this will be a very versatile die-cut. We also have a new Birds & Branches die (p.199 #114529 $19.95) and it is just beautiful!! I can't wait to see the projects made using this die!!
Next, in our Sizzix line are the Originals Dies. We have a few new dies in this line - Circles #2 (p.199 #114526 $15.95), Ovals (p.199 #114525 $15.95) and Flower Layers #3 (p.199 #114527 $15.95). These dies offer layers of circles, ovals and flowers. I love layers!!!
We only have one new Sizzlit Die this time. Stampin' Up! Little Leaves (p.200 #114511 $4.95) is a small sprig of leaves. We have two new Sizzlits 4-Pack Dies and both are exclusive to Stampin' Up! The first is the Stampin' Up! Lots of Tags (p.201 #114508 $21.95). I love this one and I was hoping that we would get one of these. Oh, how easy it'll be to make all those little gifts labeled with our own tags to give to the people that you love!! The second is the Stampin' Up! Big Bold Cupcakes (p.201 #114509 $21.95). This Sizzlit set coordinates with our Big Bold Cupcake stamp set!! You've gotta love that!!
The last three product lines are new to Stampin' Up! all together. The Sizzix Embosslits Dies are little metal folders that not only dry emboss the image, but also cuts it out!! These are the neatest little things. As a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, I could pre-order some products beginning in December. So having some time to play with it, I posted the card that used the Stampin' Up! Sweetest Stem embosslit (p.202 #114513 $11.95) and the Love You Much Bundle. Click here to see that card. There are five embosslits dies in our Stampin' Up! line and four of those are exclusive to Stampin' Up! The Texturz Plates create subtle embossed designs on your project. They come in sets of three double-sided plates. The first is Stampin' Up! Backgrounds I (p.203 #114512 $11.95). These pattern designs are exclusive to Stampin' Up! We are also carrying Texture Plates Kit #4 (p.203 #114531 $9.95). These plates are used with the Multipurpose Platform (which comes with your Big Shot), the Impressions Pad and the Silicone Rubber (which are sold separately). I can't wait to play with these and see all the new textures on my projects. The last product that I'll talk about today is a product that we were able to see demonstrated from stage at the Leadership conference. However, it was somewhat of a teaser for us and probably you too. This product is in the Spring-Summer 2009 IB&C and is listed as a "sneak peak". The Stampin' Up! Manhattan Flower Textured Impressions Die (p.202 #114517 $7.95) will be available to purchase in March 2009. I'm just not sure if I'll be able to wait that long. Well... I guess I have to. It'll be so worth the wait though. This Manhattan Flower coordinates with the Fifth Avenue Floral stamp set on p.106. It is such a beautiful image! It's the same image that is printed on my brand new umbrella that I purchased from Memento Mall at the Leadership conference and I love it!!!
Well that's the run-down of our new Sizzix line in the Spring-Summer 2009 IB&C! I hope you enjoy the little "sneak peek" of these products while you're waiting for your copy of the catalog. Check back tomorrow for some more fun stuff! Until then... happy stamping!
