New Thin Cuts!

We’ve just launched four new sets of our exclusive Thin Cuts metal dies! These new Thin Cuts coordinate with four stamp sets in our Annual Inspirations idea book: My Acrylix® School Kids, My Acrylix® Wreath, My Acrylix® Sweet Birthday, and My Acrylix® Swirly Seashells.

The great thing about our Thin Cuts is that they save you so much time—no more fussy-cutting! They also make it SO much easier to cut duplicates of the same shape.

Here is some artwork to show you what we mean.

Adorable, right? We absolutely love our My Acrylix® School Kids stamp set, and with the new coordinating Thin Cuts, you can make lots of these cute little kiddos in no time. Don’t they just make the most adorable student name cards?

If you’re a teacher, these Thin Cuts could give you a fast way to decorate name cards, cubbies, and more. You can color in your students’ miniature look-alikes—or get your students in on the fun!

Creating duplicates of the same shapes also comes in handy when you want to really deck out a scrapbooking page. Here we used the Swirly Seashells Thin Cuts to make all these little seashells. Since we didn’t need to spend nearly as much time trimming out the seashells, we had more time to add beautiful watercolor details to them instead.

We’ve shown you artwork made using two of the four new Thin Cuts sets, and given you just a small taste of the possibilities! Check out our promotions page to learn more about this limited-time offer!

An Elegant Way to Put Your Memories On Display

As the end of July draws near, some of you have probably started to place your summertime memories in albums. But have you ever thought about hanging them on the wall? Our Designed Décor products are perfect for preserving memories while still leaving all the creativity to you! What’s really fun about this line is that the products allow you to showcase your photos while using even more of your favorite paper packets, stamps, and embellishments at once. Of course, the Designed Décor line can also be used with minimal or no embellishments, and the products will still add simple elegance to any photos. That’s what’s great about Designed Décor—YOU get to determine how many details you want to add and the overall effect you want to create. We decided to try our hand at creating a very embellished Designed Décor item, just for fun. 🙂 Our artist started with our display tray, let her creative gears run wild, and produced stunning results!


Isn’t that a gorgeous memento to hang on your wall? Right off the bat you can see that our display tray can be a great way to use up leftover scraps and embellishments you have lying around. Our artist cut the “Life” letters from the My Crush® For Her Book and used 3-D foam tape to make them pop. How creative is that? We also love the way the artist cut photos in half to share between two windows. And the journaling on the Picture My Life™ Jackson Scrapbooking Program card. And the landscape scenes created using the Seaside paper packet and fence stamp. Sorry, we’ll try to contain our excitement. This display tray’s just got us reeling!


Like an intricate scrapbook page, the small details really make this display tray special. Embossed letters using the My Acrylix® Keyboard Uppercase stamp set provide a gritty texture similar to sand, and what better pictures to use with the Oceanside sequins than actual pictures of the ocean? The sequins tie the cool colors of the display board together wonderfully.


Just look at all the details in this corner of the display tray. The Cricut®-cut wave, the layered seashells shaded with watercolor pencils, the perfectly placed sequins, the metal Seaside Assortment pieces. And what an inventive way to use Glacier thick twine! The net and starfish add such a unique, dimensional element to this piece.

Not only is our Designed Décor line perfect for creating seasonal décor with family memories, but it’s also great for showcasing everyday pictures—and in a way that will catch the eye of all your guests. Even if you don’t use as many embellishments as the piece above, Designed Décor provides a great medium for beautifully displaying photos and memories. So go ahead! Take a look at our Designed Décor line, and choose the perfect piece to add to your home. Then sit back, relax, and let the compliments roll in. 🙂
