DieCember® is HERE!!!

DieCember Reveal

Hi friends! Happy DieCember® 1st! 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 this video for tips and tricks 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!

  1. Ordered the ice skater die yesterday evng when I rcvd the VIP email along with a TH die set. When I moved from FL to TX my hubby & I took ice skating lessons at a mall that has an ice skating rink inside. I enjoyed it a lot. We took Level 1 Basic Ice skating. I enjoyed it so much I also took Level 2 Jumps & Spins.

  9. Hi Laura. Thank you for taking so much trouble to cut out and show us how the dies look when cut. It makes such a huge difference. Of course SSS JUST HAD TO RELEASE THIS IN DECEMBER!!!!!!! I NEED so many of these gorgeous dies, but I’m going to have to start saving, as December is a huge month for everyone. Love, love, love these dies. Thanks for sharing so beautifully!

  10. Oh boy, here I go again… There are quite a few items I’d surely like to have, even though I keep telling myself I have enough. In fact my DH asked me a couple of months ago, “Do you ever get to the point where you have enough?”. The real question should be, “Will we (us crafters) ever get to the point where we believe we have enough?”.
