Hi friends! Happy DieCember® 1st! Our very first DieCember was in December 2013, and the team is a bit in awe that it’s been 11 years already!! I’m not exactly or precisely sure when die cutting became a hot trend in crafting. It’s hard to pinpoint. However, I do know that die cutting has changed the way that we create. Cutting out beautiful and often intricate images is a delightfully fun part of paper crafting. Die cutting embellishes our art in interesting ways. People that aren’t paper crafters are often mystified when they receive a card that has anything die cut involved in the design. If you haven’t experienced this wonderment and awe, be sure to spread some handmade joy this season! (check out these videos for cool tips, tricks, and ideas in die cutting)
To celebrate dies as one of my most favorite crafty products (after stamps, of course ;)), we are hosting a month-long DieCember® celebration. Throughout the month you will see special features, sales, education, and inspiration that focus on die cutting.
Kicking off our DieCember® celebration is a release of beautiful exclusive wafer-thin dies.
The always inventive and fun Laura Bassen made a very special video introducing all of these new products! Don’t miss it!
Drum roll, please! We are delighted to share our Simon Says Stamp branded wafer thin dies that cut out select Tim Holtz holiday stamps beautifully! It really helps in time management during the hustle and bustle of the holiday season!
