Pack a punch on your next crafty project with the new Peek-a-Boo Alphabet Uppercase Die-namics. This alphabet creates letters with a series of punched holes. Back your letters with contrasting color for an eye-catching pop, or, use the holes as a stitching guide!

One more peek at the third Hybrid Ink collection we shared earlier in the release. These scrapbook safe, pigment based inks dry like dye inks and are permanent on paper surfaces, acid-free, archival, and fade resistant. Inks can be heat set on glass, fabric, wood, plastic, metal, and clay. As these inks are fast drying and waterproof, they cannot be embossed with embossing powder.

Our third release of Hybrid Inks includes thirteen colors, in both ink pad and refill formats, that coordinate with our existing Replenishments products. The ink pad surface measures 3 3/8″ x 2 1/8.” The lid is printed in the appropriate ink color while the bottom sticker includes the ink name for easy identification no matter how you store your pads. The refills measure 1/4 oz. each. Buy each color individually OR get the entire thirteen color collection, in either pads or refills, for the price of twelve. We’re excited about the possibilities this new formula offers and we know you’ll love them as much as we do!

The June Release Countdown Begins

NewReleaseCountdown_Day7

I don’t know about you, but for me, the word “June” just makes me smile. So many good things typically happen this month…from elaborate weddings to simple picnics, June is a month that memories are made. As always, we’ve mixed in some versatile stamps and Die-namics that will lend themselves to virtually any project, and punctuated the release with incredibly fun office-themed goodies. A new set of colors for our line of Hybrid Inks is included as well so no matter your pleasure, we’ve got you covered – I think you’ll find that it will be very easy to engage yourself with our June 2014 release and all it has to offer.

The Blueprints 16 Die-namics is such a unique addition to the Blueprints series! This set provides for endless opportunities for interactivity and allows you to create A2 cards with two different circular flap closure options: tuck the flap into a semi-circle notch or, tuck a tabbed flap into a discreet slot. Use the circular frames to create windows, layer-able circle elements, or shakers. Six different styles of mini banners are fun to mix and match and embellish with small elements or customize with letters. The rectangular panel measures 5.5 x 4.25 and will completely cover an A2 card front.
