How adorable is this? Artist and crafter Mou Saha made this using my new Crafty Chica shrine die cuts and I’m sitting here in tears from its cuteness! She definitely worked magic! Here is the full tutorial for this project from the Sizzix site.
I just learned I’ve been approved to design a THIRD line for Sizzix and this week I’m doing my best to keep my nerves at bay as I venture back into the world of design. It’s exciting to know people will use these items to express their creativity!
Where to start? Sizzix already has so many innovative products from a team of talented designers. I go through this phase of self-doubt and second guessing myself and then I force myself to plow through. I’ll draw up dozens of designs and do informal focus groups with friends and family to choose the best ones before presenting them to my product manager.
The hardest part is narrowing down ideas! Not just narrowing, but laser beam vision on having multiple uses and appeal. So wish me luck this week, because I’m going in – pencil first!
I recently visited the Scrapbook.com headquarters here in Arizona and filmed two new video tutorials showing off two of the die sets!
Aside from the Crafty Chica shrine die cuts, I also have these papel picado dies!
