Each Sizzix licensed designer has a separate area of the booth.  It’s like leaving an antique store and walking into the sunshine!

One of the new releases garnering a lot of attention is French General, a collection of dies for organizing  beads, buttons, needles and notions. French General is a vintage craft store/workshop located in Los Angeles, California, specializing in beads, buttons, millinery and textiles reminiscent of the rural French countryside with a red/white/blue palette on display.

The beach/ocean themed displays were spectacular too!

Aren’t the Adirondack chair and camper dies fantastic?

@cdnscrapbooker #sizzix

The Eclips2 and its accessory toolkit were on display.  If you are considering an electronic cutting machine, check out Connie Nichol’s tutorial series with the Eclips2 on our blog.

@cdnscrapbooker #sizzix

There are some wonderful new tools and die cutting accessories released too!

There is a new Precision Base plate, handy for those intricate wafer-thin dies.

@cdnscrapbooker #sizzix

One of the best improvements I saw in the booth was the new cutting pads!  COLOUR!! So you don’t lose those clear acrylic pads in the mess on your studio desk (well, ummmm, at least I do!)

@cdnscrapbooker #sizzix

There is also a new Extended Magnetic Platform.

@cdnscrapbooker #sizzix

Love the idea of this unique embossing folder called a “Shadowpress Station”!

@cdnscrapbooker #sizzix

A totally fun new product are these Ink Sheets, to be used for a letterpress effect with your dies, embossing folders or even your own handwriting!
