Global market leader cultivates new lifelike, nature-inspired crafts products

Crafts Big Shot

Crafters can create charming lifelike flowers fit for any occasion when using the Susan's Garden™ die-cutting collection from Sizzix®.

“With my new collection, your garden can depict the changing of seasons in all their wonder,” said Susan Tierney-Cockburn, Licensed Designer for Sizzix. “Watching my garden change marks our time on earth, as filled with joyful memories.”

Floral crafting products continue to grow for Sizzix® and its family of die-cutting machines thanks to the latest collection of creative designs from licensed designer Susan Tierney-Cockburn™.

A fresh floral bouquet of 14 wafer-thin, chemically-etched Thinlits™ die sets await crafters in the newest Susan’s Garden™ product collection. The beauty of elegant flowers such as amaryllis, cosmos, rhododendron and sweet pea, are brought indoors through the use of ordinary cardstock to create do-it-yourself card, gift giving, home décor and papercrafting projects.

“With my new collection, your garden can depict the changing of seasons in all their wonder,” Tierney-Cockburn said. “Watching my garden change marks our time on earth, as filled with joyful memories.”

Also accompanying the release is a new Grid Works Thinlits die to create mosaics or cubes to highlight stamped artwork, as well as two steel-rule Bigz™ dies that cut book and slipper shapes to complement any exquisitely assembled Susan’s Garden flower.

“Susan Tierney-Cockburn’s newest collection allows crafters to easily create intricate florals that can be enjoyed for any occasion!” said Cara Mariano, Art Director for Sizzix.

The latest release of Susan’s Garden products is now available in stores around the country, including local craft boutiques and major retail craft chains. For more information, visit
