We're passionate about crafting and designs here at Sizzix, which is why we're constantly coming out with brand new items for our makers to die-cut with! Sometimes though, it's good to look back at our previous products and remind ourselves of past dies that we (still) love! Here are some of our top picks from our past collections and the best part of is? All of these dies come with a full DIY manual that'll help you get started step-by-step! Check out some crafts that you can start on this weekend below!

  • Celestial Star by Brenda Walton: It's never too early to start on your Christmas preparations. Brenda Walton's previous collection Merry & Bright from two years ago was a hit during the holidays and we just couldn't help but bring back her beautiful designs. Some of our favorite was her Celestial Star die, which was (and still is!) the perfect cross between magic and elegance. Watch a video tutorial on how to use this die here.
