Sizzix Color Story

I’m back at Create and Craft this Wednesday with some shows on the Sizzix Color Story (or Colour Story for those of us in the UK – it feels odd typing the word color, but Sizzix is a US company so that’s the correct spelling)

The Sizzix Color Story is a whole range of products, following the same colour palette. The first product released in this range was the cardstock pack, and all those colours have since been used for acrylic paints, embossing powders, beads and sequins, felt, sculpting foam, glitter, cards and envelopes etc. This makes your crafting so easy, because it all co-ordinates so well.

In my shows this week, we are going to take a close look at that colour palette, and I’ve put together some swatches so you can see how this one pack of cardstock, can take you through all the season’s and all occasions.

I’ve used just one die set – the Spring Foliage set by Pete Hughes, to create a wreath for each season:

Spring – Cherry Blossom, Limoncello, Ballet Slipper, Arctic Sky, Green Tea
Summer – Primrose, Sorbet, Mint Julep, Mango Tango, Mermaid Kiss
Autumn – Earl Grey, Hibiscus, Agave, Banana Blast, Caramel Toffee
Winter – Green Tea, Hibiscus, Earl Grey, Caramel Toffee, Lush Leaves

You can get such different looks from one die set just by switching up the colours. Pete Hughes put together some fabulous colour swatches – and you can find them on the Sizzix website, along with a video showing them.

So for different occasions, this card set covers those too:

Easter – Cherry Blossom, Primrose, Limoncello, Arctic Sky, Mint Julep
Valentines – Primrose, Limoncello, Cherry Blossom, Hibiscus, Ballet Slipper
Halloween – Cobble Stone, Earl Grey, Lush Leaves, Purple Dusk, Mango Tango
Festive – Hibiscus, Mint Julep, Lush Leaves, Agave, Caramel Toffee

Hope you can join me for the shows, I’ll also try and do a video on this for you, so will pop back to share that later.

Best of 2021

I thought I’d have a scroll through my photos and pick out a few of my favourite projects from the past year. It’s been another fabulous year for me working for Sizzix, and I’ve been lucky enough to work with so many gorgeous products. The designers are Sizzix really are a talented bunch, and when I looked back through my photos it was hard to pick just nine photos.

The shows I did in the summer with the crepe paper flowers were a real highlight – having never made crepe paper flowers before this, I was amazed at how much fun it was.

Another highlight from the year was the Botanicals collection from Lisa Jones. Florals are always inspiring to me, and this collection features all my favourite colours. The whole range is beautiful, so this was another show I really enjoyed doing.

2021 was another fabulous year of releases from Eileen Hull. Her journals are some of my most-used dies, and she came out with two fabulous journals – the Folio Journal and the Full Size Journal, as well as some very clever dies to create extra elements such as a waterfall.

Happy New Year, and thank you for following me this year on all the various platforms. 2022 is going to be an exciting year for me. I am giving up my PA job to concentrate full-time on my crafting, so you will be seeing lots more of me – as well as doing more work with Sizzix, I’m planning to do lots more on my YouTube channel, I have so many ideas, and I can’t wait to have the time to put them into action!

I’ve listed below most of the products used on these projects in case you want to find them.
