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!
Of the new collection we have a complete set of zodiac shapes which are perfect for last minute birthday cards and gifts! We also have hoop and chandelier earrings that you can cut and wear and a super cool three dimensional bow which you can use to embellish all sorts of fun projects! And don’t even get me started on the graffiti font and spray paint can! Insanely cute!
Here are some quick and easy greeting cards I created with the sneaker and unicorn shapes. For these I incorporated some adhesive holographic Duck Tape sheets and exotic paper from the USArtQuest One Pound Bag of Assorted Art Papers.
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!!!
Did you know that the Marisa Pawelko Modern Surrealist line of Surfacez Inks are perfect for all of your crafting needs because they stick to any porous or non porous surface! This allows to to drip, brush, daub or stamp the colorful inks onto a wide variety of materials including: paper, plastic, glass, metal and more!
Collect them all!
Congrats to all of the winners and participants! It was a pleasure being on the judging panel and at the same time excruciating to narrow it down to my favorites! The projects submitted were all so good! For those of you who missed the live stream and weren’t able to attend The Craftys Awards in person, here is the video from the event. Enjoy!
