Selection of Sizzix Chapter 4 Projects by Alexis Trimble

We will soon be launching our Sizzix Chapter 4 release, full of festive icons that range from Thinlits Christmas Die Sets to Valentine's Day Bigz Sets! Not to mention there are some great products for everyday use - essential for your craft toolbox! I am so excited to start making with these new Chapter 4 Thinlits and Bigz Dies.

Today I'm going to walk you through some of my staple favorites from the Sizzix Chapter 4 release.

Layered Labels - Thinlits

Sizzix Chapter 4 - Layered Labels Die Set

Just as you would have everyday staples such as nested circles or squares in your craft stash, you soon will not want to be without our Sizzix Layered Labels Thinlits (665482). This Die Cutting set provides the perfect shapes for four different labels, each with their own unique design, as well as, a set of florals and foliage dies that can be used throughout any season of the year. Having basic shapes to add points of interest to a card front, scrapbook page, or even a recipe card or place card make this set a perfect addition for your everyday or holiday makes.

Floral Geo Heart Frame - Thinlits

Sizzix Chapter 4 - Flower Heart Frame Die Set

Whether you are looking to craft for Valentine's Day, Mother's Day, a friend's birthday or a bridal shower, the Sizzix Floral Geo Heart Frame Thinlits (665478) has traditional heart and floral icons that can work for any moment of celebration. The metal frame itself cuts out a beautiful geometric heart that looks stunning when die cut from our metallic Opulent cardstock packs. The florals and foliage make a nice addition to decorate around the heart or to be used on their own. Customize for the occasion, by simply changing the color scheme on your florals and you will find this die set is able to last you through out the entire year. Pair the die cuts with our new Cards & Envelopes, as they are sized perfectly to fit a card front.

Sizzix Chapter 4 - Finished Floral Card

Rainbow Fold-a-Long Card - Thinlits

Sizzix Chapter 4 - Rainbow Fold-a-Long Card Finished

If you know me, you know I love a good rainbow anything! So when Jen Long designed the Sizzix Rainbow Fold-a-Long Card (665475) I was beyond thrilled! What's fantastic about this particular Die Set, aside from sending a bright cheery note to someone, is that you can customize the type of rainbow color scheme you would prefer. Monochromatic, metallics, specific color themes, any color way can be created with the various rainbow bands dies. And what a great card to send to someone who needs a bright spot in their day!

I can't believe I'm about to say this but holiday gift giving is soon upon us! Where has the year gone?! With the Envelope Box #2 Thinlits (665477) you can make a sweet little box to send along to family, friends or colleagues for your upcoming Christmas crafts! Fill it with a gift card, small pieces of jewelry or mini treats to the delight of your loved ones all year round. By simply changing out the colors of the box you can celebrate in style through any season or occasion. The envelope flaps are also sized to work alongside our Sizzix Switchlits Embossing Folder - Seasonal Seals (665356), creating a seamless finish to the envelope style of the box.

House - Thinlits

Completed New Sizzix Thinlits - Craft Christmas & Festive  House

Perhaps my favorite product from the Chapter 4 release, is none other than the Sizzix Thinlits Die Set House (665480)! Sized to work wonderfully on a card front or in a home decor element, our House Thinlits provides trees, a snowman and all of the elements to craft a Festive Christmas Home. However, the basic elements of this die lend themselves to creating year round. Consider a spooky Craft Halloween cottage, a cheery Easter home or perhaps a note of celebration for someone in their new home. This die set is sure to see you through every season, especially the winter one!

Heart Pocket - Bigz

Completed Craft Valentine's Day Card with New Sizzix Hearts Bigz

Of course as we head in to the new year, one must consider Valentine's Day! With the Bigz Heart Pocket Die (665492) you can tuck a little note or sweet treat into a gift, a bouquet of flowers, or send along with kids to give them out during Valentine's Day celebrations. However, hearts are not just for a Craft Valentine's Day, so you could easily use this to celebrate Mother's Day, a friends birthday or an Anniversary! I can't wait to see all the ways people use this in their makes or gifts.
