Sizzix Eileen Hull Shadow Box dies on Create & Craft TV 19/20 May

Gosh I’m so excited for these shows. I have been so happy making all these projects. I have literally not left my craft studio the whole week I was making them except to eat and sleep!

So this is the Chapter 2 release from Eileen Hull, and unusually for her, this release doesn’t have any Bigz dies, there are 3 thinlit die sets, along with a stunning 3-D embossing folder called Crochet.

There are two sets that include the different size ‘sides’ to the shadow box. Shadow Box 1 allows you to create a small square frame, then Shadow Box 2 has a medium and large die, so you can create a landscape frame (as above). But of course, you can interchange the sizes, and say, just use the two longer sides of this one to create a larger square frame.

Then there’s a set called Shadow Box Elements that has some gorgeous little houses along with lots of other dies to decorate your frames. There are also extra elements in the frame sets.

I love the variety of elements in these sets, and the houses are just adorable. They are just as fabulous on cards as they are to create shadow boxes.

They also work so well with other die sets – for this square frame I used the largest shadowbox die and the Wild Blooms 1 die set.

I kind of replicated the project from the packaging photo for this one – it shows off all the little elements really nicely.

I’ve got lots more projects to share, so will pop back soon with more!

The new Sizzix Big Shot Switch Plus Electric die cutting machine

Well it’s been a long wait hasn’t it? I first saw the Switch in action at the trade show in Frankfurt in January 2020 and I was so excited about it coming out. Literally as soon as we all got home from Frankfurt, the UK went into the first lockdown, and the launch was postponed.

It’s been worth the wait. Mine arrived on Wednesday and I was so happy to finally get to use it. I’ve put together two quick videos for those of you that might want to get one. The first video is literally just an unboxing video so you can see what you get with the machine (it comes as a starter kit with some dies and an embossing folder). The second video is a more detailed run through how to use it – so you can refer to this once you get your machine and want to see a run through.

For those of you in the UK, the machine will be available first on Create and Craft next week. I’ll update the links below as it becomes available more widely.
