I'm really excited about some new products that Stampin' Up! has introduced in the 2012 Occasions Mini Catalog.  If you own a Big Shot or similar die cutting machine you may already be familiar with a similar product that has been on the market for a while starting with the letter "N!"  This new Stampin' Up! product comes with the Stampin' Up! guarantee of a quality product.  So, let me introduce you to the…



Framelits Dies Labels CollectionFramelits Dies Hearts CollectionTo the left, you'll see a sample of the two Framelits Dies currently available in the 2012 Occasions Mini Catalog.  There is the Hearts Collection (125599) and Labels Collection (125598) each individually priced at $26.95 and exclusive to Stampin' Up!  As described in the 2012 Occasions Mini Catalog, the Framelits Dies are "innovative, thin, wafer-like design."  So what makes these Framelits Dies unique?  The design of these Framelits mean "you see where you're placing the design before you cut!"  Another great feature of these Framelits Dies is that Stampin' Up! can create matching stamp sets.  For example, The Labels Collection of the Framelits Dies coordinates with the Apothecary Art stamp set. 

When using the Framelits with a stamped image, you layer the appropriate sized Framelit over the stamped image then run it through the Big Shot.  Then you can "layer dies inside each other to cut frames for stamp images.  Cut single hearts or labels for accents or layering."  One rule of thumb that you should generally be followed is to use a single sheet of card stock or Designer Series Paper.  I have seen people create a card using 2 layers of card stock or Designer Series Paper, but you need to keep in mind the thickness of the cardstock and I personally would not have more than two light weight card stock layers to create a folded card in the shape of the Framelits Dies that you have used. 

Stay tuned for tomorrow when I share a card I created using the Labels Collection with the Apothecary Art Stamp Set.  I have to say that I'm in love with the Apothecary Art Stamp Set especially when paired with the Framelits Dies Labels Collection.  As I become more familiar with these products myself, I'm certain you'll see more of them here on my blog.
