February may be the shortest month of the year, but it’s not short of creative inspiration! Especially with a new collection of dies from Tim Holtz Alterations on the way. Continuing the tradition of providing essential shapes for mixed-media projects, Tim’s new dies are full of limitless possibilities! This new collection includes eight new Thinlit Die Sets and a brand new Bigz XL Alphabet. What has February got in store for us? Keep reading to find out everything!
What’s the Word
To start things off, Tim’s new collection is introducing a brand-new alphabet. The Cutout Script Bigz XL die includes a full set of lowercase letters, plus numbers and punctuation, that can be pieced together to spell out any word or phrase in a stylish, seamless script. That’s worth repeating: make ANY sentiment in handwritten script! We absolutely love the flexibility this die gives us in personalizing our projects with names or custom phrases!
Also coming this month is the first of Tim’s new Shadow Script die sets. Single word sentiment sets have always been popular with cardmakers, journalers and mixed-media papercrafters, but with this new series, Tim is adding a new layer—literally! Each of the five words in the Shadow Script #1 Thinlits Die Set comes with two dies—one that expresses a positive, uplifting sentiment, and another that makes a coordinating background for layering. Shadow Script dies are a dream come true!!!!
Spring is almost here, and that means we're soon to be creating with as many floral accents as possible for all our spring-themed projects. Tim’s new Mixed Media #5 Thinlits Die Set features three new intricate floral patterns that are perfect not just for die-cutting but also for creating embossed or stenciled backgrounds.
The Funky Floral #1 Thinlits Die Set is the start of a new series of flower and leaf shapes that can be mixed and matched for endless creative use. These boho-style flowers have a million uses, from cards and canvases, to tags and scrapbook pages, to whatever you can imagine. Look for more Funky Floral sets in the months to come.
For even more decorative embellishment, there’s the new Rosette Set Thinlits Die Set. This set includes three different designs for rosettes, each just about 2 1/2" in diameter. They’re the perfect way to add dimension to any design, for any occasion.
There’s always a need for fresh foundation pieces for layering and embellishment, and Tim’s got some great new options available. The Stacked Baroque and Stacked Deckle Thinlits Die Sets each include 5 separate dies, with shapes that are ideal for layering on card fronts, scrapbook pages and more.
The Stitched Slots Thinlits Die set is the next evolution of the library pocket, with ladder-like slots making pockets that are perfect for holding a collage of photos and ephemera, the perfect addition for any papercraft project. And last but not least, there’s the new Gift Card Bag Thinlits Die Set. With this die, you can quickly and easily personalize a gift card giving with a unique wrap. It even comes with a complete set of alphabet dies, at a price point that’s hard to resist.
