Well, if you're a QuicKutz fan you've probably noticed some of the kazillion new Around the World products we've released this week! Here they are in a nutshell:
- 50 United States Shapes on 2x2 dies
- 15 Select Country Shapes on 2x2 dies
- 14 Country Collections on pre-foamed Cookie Cutter dies
- 3 travel-related GooseBumpz embossing dies
- 25 country flag Digital Designs for the Silhouette
- Map and Globe Digital Designs for the Silhouette
Oh, and is that not enough for you? Well, the next Silhouette release (on April 18th) and the standard May release are also going to be related to the Around the World theme. Except that May's release will be anything but standard. I hope I'm not being too much of a tease... I'm just trying to give you as much information as I can.
What? You're not buying it? You think that I'm just saying all that to be a tease? Well, then, I plead the 5th... :)
Okay, back to the new stuff that you already know about. I know that some people are still hesitant about Cookie Cutter dies (perhaps because of a bad foaming experience? boy, that phrase just doesn't sound right!). Well let me tell you that the Country Collections are pre-foamed and NOW IS THE TIME to give Cookie Cutters a chance!
There are so many different types of dies in the Country Collections, and surely at least one (or 8, or 14) have a couple dies that speak to you and you would use a lot on cards or in your scrapbooks.
In case you were wondering, the Norway Collection is my favorite. I was an exchange student there many years ago and I still haven't scrapbooked all of my photos (over 1000 for sure... ) so SOMEDAY I'll be all prepared to do that. And yes, moose crossing signs are really posted all over the country! It's awesome!
Also, did you know that Norwegians not only invented the really cool and utilitarian cheese slicer (ostehøvel), but also the paper clip? During WWII, Norwegians wore a paper clip on their lapel or sleeve to show resistance to the Nazis.
What's your favorite new QuicKutz die or Digital Design and why?
Have a great weekend, everyone!
