“We are ecstatic that CHA chose to recognize the vibrancy that Marisa’s debut product collection brings to the craft market,” said Denzil Quick, Director of Product Development for Sizzix. “The unique designs from the Modern Surrealist collection present a youthful, fun motif that crafters can gravitate toward.”

Eclectic sneakers, zippers, sunglasses and talking bubbles highlight the inspiring collection of 20 steel-rule Originals™ dies that cut a wide variety of materials that scissors can cut.
