The village is growing! Last year, Tim introduced us to his Village Dwelling, which then was able to be turned into the perfect holiday decor with his Winter Dwelling. This year, Tim has added a Bungalow, new textured roof tops, and the Village Brownstone, which are available now on Sizzix.com! Are you ready to roll up your sleeves and grab your making materials? Adventure awaits- it's time to start creating some new dwellings for our ever growing Tim Holtz Village!
To kick off the Village-making fun, Tim has 3 new Village Rooftops dies for his new Village Bungalow and Village Brownstone, (which are also compatible with the original Village Dwelling) giving these dwellings the perfect rooftop accent depending on the texture and look you want! We absolutely love that these dies are our Bigz dies, which allow us more versatility in the materials we use, including cardstock, chipboard, fabric, foam, magnet, leather, metallic foil, paper and sandpaper. To use this die, you will need a BIGkick, Big Shot or the Tim Holtz inspired Vagabond2 and requires one Cutting Pad and one Crease Pad.
Tim's Village Bungalow is the dwelling of our dreams! This die comes with so many little extras, like a picket fence, window shutters for example, that really set this dwelling die apart from the rest. We love how easily this little bungalow can be transformed to look so different from one project to the next! Like with the Rooftops dies, this die is also a Bigz die, so getting creative with the materials you use to construct this dwelling is definitely encouraged! We can't wait to start making with this Village Bungalow- there are SO many mixed media techniques waiting to be used with this new die!
Tall and sturdy looking, Tim's new Village Brownstone resembles the shape and structure of old-time school houses or churches, and once again, our minds are racing with ideas of different ways we can make and create this dwelling! This Bigz die is so incredibly adaptable, not just with the material you can cut with it, but the different ways which you can make and create it! With the 3 new Rooftops dies, this Brownstone can be taken from a sturdy structure to a tall cottage. Add a steeple to the top and you have a gorgeous miniature church! Or, if you use brightly colored cardstock, like Jessica Roe did, you can have some of the most playful beach houses, perfect for a summertime vignette!
The possibilities are truly endless with Tim Holtz's newest additions to his Village! We're so excited that this new collection is available to you on Sizzix.com! If you aren’t already, make sure you’re following Tim on , and for some sneak peeks, tutorials, videos, and more of these awesome new dies! Be sure to hashtag #timholtz and #sizzix if you share your makes and projects on social media so we can see and reshare! What will your village look like with these new dwelling additions?
