July 1, 2014

Hello everyone!

To celebrate our new release, we are having a prize drawing! Enter to win a $100 shopping spree at Elizabeth Craft Designs. Details are at the end of this blog post.

We are so excited to announce our Summer 2014 release which includes:

– 27 New dies and die sets designed by Els van de Burgt and me
– 16 New die sets designed by Karen Burniston
– 2 New Shimmer Sheetz Colors – Light Blue and Yellow Metallic
– New Metallic Shimmer Sheetz Sampler Pack

All products will be available in stores mid-July 2014. If you don’t have a local store, don’t worry, we also offer the new products online at

Our Design Team already created some wonderful projects using our new dies. We would like to SNEAK PEEK a few today. But let’s have a look at the 27 new dies first.

We have a Candle, Rubber Ducky, Holly Flourish, Crystal Flowers and much more! We also have a new set of Stand Up Helper dies. This time the set includes 6 seasonal images. If you haven’t seen Stand Up Helpers dies before, watch Els demonstrating them HERE. They are so much fun!


Now that you’ve seen Els demonstrating the Stand Up Helpers dies, we hope you are excited about our 9 NEW Stand Up Helpers word dies! And don’t forget, you can use these versatile dies at the top of or down the side of a card, not just as Stand Up Helpers.


We have 3 NEW word dies; Happy New Year, Merry Christmas and Season’s Greetings. All three are different from existing dies with the same words. They’re great for cutting paper, cardstock, Velvet Adhesive Sheets and more. To see our full collection of word dies, click HERE.


And last but not least the wonderful Pop it Ups collection by Karen Burniston including 3 NEW Character dies, Poppy, Hoppy and Chilly plus a Props set. Karen has 2 great Videos demonstrating the new dies. To watch the Videos click HERE.

Now that we’ve showed you all of the new dies, it’s time for some samples! The Design Team came up with some amazing projects. Here are just a few of the cards they created:

Rita Edwards created a Stand Up Helpers card using the Snowflake Stand Up Helper from Stand Up Helpers Set 2. She also used the Candle, Holly Leaves & Berries and the new Merry Christmas dies.


Els van de Burgt used the new word Stand Up Helpers Season’s Greetings and Merry Christmas. For the card on the left Els used the Stocking Solid and the Stocking Overlay Set 1. The little flower is included in the Candle die set which was also used for the card on the right. The Holly Flourish was used to decorate the top and bottom of the card.

Rita Edwards created a second Stand Up Helpers card using the Tree Stand Up Helper from Stand Up Helpers 2. Rita also used the Snowman and Happy New Year dies.


Jackie Smith used the ornament dies from Ornament Set 3 to create her card. She also used the small sprigs included in the Candle die set and the new Merry Christmas word die. The larger sprig at the top is from our previous collection and it is called Sprig and Berries.


Debra Hensley used the Season’s Greetings Stand Up Helper die to illustrate how beautiful it can look on a flat card. She also used the NEW Snowman and the 5 Part Pine (from our previous collection).

Karen Aicken also used the Season’s Greeting Stand Up Helper die for a flat card. Because of the bar at the bottom of the letters, the die can also be used to create a border sentiment at the top of a card. Karen used the Holly Leaves and Berries dies for the card front and embossed the background with the Berry Branch Embossing Folder, a great combination!

Candy Spiegel used the NEW Rubber Ducky and the Congratulations die from our previously released collection.

Frances Byrne used the umbrella, boots and raindrops from the Rainy Day die set, along with the Get Well Soon Stand Up Helper, for her card.

Kelly Booth created this card using our NEW Crystal Flower and Hello Stand Up Helper dies. There are 3 Crystal Flower sets: Crystal Flower Set 1 includes 2 solid flowers (2 sizes) and 2 centers; Crystal Flower Overlay Set 1 (not shown) and Crystal Flower Overlay Set 2 (used for this project) include two overlays to match the solid flowers, along with two centers.

Raquel Mason used the umbrella from the Rainy Day die set as well as the new Rubber Ducky die for her card. They are the perfect fit for Karen Burniston’s NEW Ring Accordion Card die. 

Helen Cryer used the NEW Wheelbarrow and Bunch of Flowers 1 and Accordion Circle Card from our previously released collection.

Francs Byrne also used the Wheelbarrow die for her card, along with the new Happy Birthday Stand Up Helper. She used Karen Burniston’s NEW Outdoor Edges and Bunch of Flowers 1 and Curvy Leaves from our previously released collection. As you can see, the Design Team loves to use dies they already own in combination with the new ones they’ve just received!

We hope that these samples will inspire you and that you are as excited as we are about the new dies!
