Where did the week go makers? Do you ever have a week that flies by so fast you feel as if the last 7 days have been a blur? This What's Up Wednesday we want to share with you all the amazing and fun stuff we've been seeing and doing this past month- just in case you missed it. Ready? Let's dive in!
1. Did You Know - Our New YouTube Series!
Did you know you can add dimension to your die cuts just by shading? Or did you know there's a trick to creating the perfect Tim Holtz Rosette? We're shedding a light on all things making with our latest YouTube series. Get the scoop and catch up on all the current videos here.
2. Combos MADE For Happy Mail!
If you've been following us on our Instagram page, you may have seen this awesome Llama card created with Katelyn Lizardi's Cómo Se Llama Thinlit Combo set. And yeah...we LOVE it. We are all over Llamas and this adorable set gives us SO much inspiration for future projects. But have you seen our other combos? Talk about making fun! From Mermaid Dreams to Macaroons, our Thinlit Combo sets are magical - and a steal. Each set comes with one embossing folder that perfectly matches the style or theme of the dies that accompany it. They basically scream Happy Mail.
3. Flower Power!
It's no secret we're HUGE fans of David Tutera's Celebrations collection, which features 12 large scale flower dies and 2 incredible tools. While it was at first only available at Michael's Stores and Michael's Online, it recently became available for purchase on Sizzix.com and we could not be more excited. We've seen these gorgeous flowers on everything from photo walls to crowns fit for royalty, to incredible table dressings for bridal showers. If you haven't taken the time to check this collection out and are looking for a place to start, we highly recommend this video on how to put together a Large Paper Peony. Spring is in bloom and these beauties are sure to add some sunshine to your makes!
Stephanie Barnard has wowed us yet again and in a most unexpected way. PUDGIES! We. Are. Obsessed. Her new Mini Pudgies Framelits and Stamps are just the cutest thing and they even come with adorable sentiment stamps. Check out this awesome card Vanessa B created over on her blog. And if you want a chance to meet Stephanie Barnard, and take one of her classes, don't miss this blog.
5. Wall Decor Love
Last but not least...we just HAD to share this amazing post from Asia Wu. Did you know you can cut felt with our steel-ruled dies? That sure comes in handy when creating home decor like these beautiful wall hangings. We have a variety of flower dies you can use, but we highly recommend this one to get you started.
