I am super excited to announce a brand new collection of shapes I designed for the Sizzix eShape Store! With my limited edition collection of steel rule dies for Sizzix nearing the end of their run, we’ve decided to make all of those shapes available in digital form for use with electronic cutters! And to commemorate the occasion, we’ve rolled out 25 BRAND NEW SHAPES to keep the crafting inspiration going!
I’ll admit I used to shy away from electronic cutters, opting instead for the manual steel rule dies. Like a lot of crafters, at first I was intimidated by the technology and thought it would be hard to learn and use. Not so! I’ve been working with the Sizzix eClips2 with Bluetooth technology for the past few days and the transition could not have been easier! I now feel silly for waiting so long to take the leap into digital crafting! If you are like me and want to see just how easy it is to get started, check out this video tutorial:
Now I invite you to hop on over to the Sizzix eShapeStore to check out my entire collection of shapes! There is something there for everyone! And be sure to stay tuned to the blog for MORE cool inspiration projects coming soon!!!
So check out ALL this spice you get for just $8 bucks!
I’ve already begun working on some unique ethnic style greeting cards with the papers from this fun grab bag! Stay tuned to see some of my creations in the coming weeks ahead! In the meantime, get inspired by hopping on over to USArtQuest to shop from the wide assortment of unique fine art products they offer!
