Sizzix®, the crafts leader in die-cutting machines, steel-rule dies and accessories, is pleased to offer a fresh collection from mixed-media artist Stephanie Ackerman.

Eleven die-cutting, embossing and stamping products depict charming holiday designs in Ackerman’s latest Homegrown & Handmade collection. Her newest offerings include a Bigz™ die, two Framelits™ die sets with stamps, seven Originals™ dies and a Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder.

“My new Homegrown & Handmade products offer crafters the tools to effortlessly make heartfelt, inspiring creations,” said Ackerman.

A charming assortment of seven Originals dies and a single Bigz L die offer gingerbread men, snowflakes, tags, trees and festive sentiments, perfect for use in cards, home décor items, journal embellishments, mixed media projects and more.

Crafters can enjoy the versatile materials that Bigz and Originals dies cut such as chipboard, grungeboard™, fabric, felt and leather.

Two wafer-thin, chemically-etched Framelits die sets cut and stamp numbers, snowmen and tags, while a single Textured Impressions Embossing Folder transforms ordinary cardstock with an intricate Christmas tree pattern.

“Consumers can easily create wonderful holiday-themed projects that echo the spirit of warmth this season brings,” said Cara Mariano, Art Director for Sizzix.
