Tis the season to be jolly, and joyous, and full of crafting excitement! We are so ready for the holiday season, and have so many new holiday dies from our Sizzix designer, Stephanie Ackerman that we are beyond thrilled to share with you. So before we jump into all of the holiday crafting amazingness, we'll let Stephanie give you a hint as to what's coming up with this festively fun holiday line.
They aren't a secret anymore, Stephanie! We know with the winter holidays coming up, that you'll want to jump on these amazing shapes, designs, textures and crafting possibilities right away! Let's get to it!
Holiday greetings are abundant this time of year, so why not display them for all to see? This perfectly festive Joy Hope Peace Frame can be made using Joy #3 Phrase, Hope Phrase, and Peace #2 Phrase. Welcome anyone into your home with these adorable seasonal sentiments, or get creatively crafty and use these phrases for an cutely friendly card, or a word-ornament! These phrases are so fun and versatile. Love them!
The sweet, fond smell of gingerbread men cooking in the oven makes us warm on the inside when we see this Felt Gingerbread Man Tag. Using both the Card Tag and the Gingerbread Man #4 this super sweet tag would be the perfect accent on a present, or even hung from the tree or mantle. (His little rosy cheeks are hands down the cutest part about him!) Similarly, a Felt Snowman Tag can be made in the same way using the Snowman & Tag set. (Equally as cute, and the perfect buddy for the Gingerbread man.)
Christmas carols and holiday music, in our minds, is a fundamental necessity for the winter season. These Christmas Tree Tags, which were made using the Card Tag and the Three Trees dies, beautifully capture both harmony and melody of crafting infused with music. This is hands down, one of our most favorite projects with this new line. Hang them on your tree, on your fireplace, or as a finishing accessory to a gift or card. There is literally no "wrong way" to use these awesome projects and dies.
Embossing is so much fun, and Stephanie made sure to include one of the most fantastic embossing options this holiday season. The Christmas Tree #9 embossing folder, (used on this gorgeous Embossed Christmas Tree Card) features a playful cursive font with the words "Joy, Love, Peace, Believe, Christmas" creating the form of a Christmas tree. At the base, a heart enclosed in a house shape finishes the tree, creating a truly wonderful image. No matter how you decide to use this textured impression, the result will be truly stunning.
We said it at the beginning, and we'll say it again- We are truly excited for all of the holiday crafting possibilities this year. There are so many options, and so many different, unique crafts and projects to be made. And of course, there are a few other goodies in this line, but we can't give away everything. (Are you stocking up on these awesome goodies on our website?) We can't wait to see all of your holiday crafts as well! Share them with us on our Facebook page, or, use the hashtag #sizzix on your posts on Twitter or Instagram.
