My NEW 'From The Heart' craft dies :-)

Good Afternoon Everyone

I'm so excited!

In case you haven't heard yet,.. my first ever collection of craft dies will be released by Creative Expressions on Thursday 4th February!

I really hope you like them,... they've been a while in the making (as you know I'm a bit of a perfectionist! ha ha)

I've called this my 'From The Heart' Collection and these are sentiment dies (as you would probably have expected from me) and they are designed around our friends, families and the events/occasions that we come across in our lives,.. the people/occasions we generally make the most cards for...

I can't show you the full range until they are officially released on Thursday, but what I can do is show you some of the cards that I've made with them,.. so, I'm going to show you a card a day up until Thursday, so you'll get a 'feel' for the styling etc...

eek!

So, here goes,.. this was the first card I made, as soon as I got my 'proper' dies (after all the prototypes and tester sets and I said, yes, they're perfect!)

I've particularly made sure that you can actually read what the sentiment says! And also tat they will all co-ordinate and work with each other too :-)

This is an 8x8 card, made with Black & Coconut White Foundations card,.. I've made all my samples with this colour theme as I love the combination and they photograph particularly well :-)
Of course, as they are dies,.. you'll be able to cut them in your favourite colours!
I've also used some of Sues' dies and, I hope you agree, the combination of Sues' flowers etc and my sentiments is a perfect match!



Here's the complete card (photographed in my craft room at home)





















Here's a close up pf the centre of the card,.. the pretty open hearts are also part of my die sets too :-)
















And here's a close up of the actual sentiment die,.. 
I adore this style and the font and the fact that I've connected it all with hearts, some open, some full and all beautifully detailed :-)











Now, I'm not going to give this card away (as it's the first one I ever made with my first ever die collection, it's a sentimental thing (pardon the pun ha ha) 
BUT, I will give away one of my samples on Thursday, to celebrate the release of my dies, so, be sure to leave a comment (good, of course!) and I will choose a name at random on Thursday afternoon.. (Good Luck!)

Happy Crafting!

  5. Love the look of these...seen nine packs on the Creative Expressions YouTube channel in your very short promo. Are those nine the whole collection? I was hoping for a set of other relations, in particular husband, wife, partner, in-law and step-. Also would like to see numbers with th, nd st to be able to add numbers to the birthday sentiment to personalise. The font is great and the wording nice and clear and readable

  48. It's lovely and I'm loving monochrome . Can't wait to see all the dies. X

  49. Oh Phill you are sure onto a winner with this one, got to have it (love the open hearts too) , especially with Valentines day being round the corner, but so useful for weddings, anniversaries, or just to say I love you cards. I agree about the monochrome colours, they do photograph so well and it is very easy for us to actually see what you are displaying. I love your papers, stamps, colour clouds and all the other products that you have produced so these dis are going to be just as popular. Was all that worrying worth it, yes it certainly was.

    Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

  50. Hi Phill. Wow! This is just what I've been waiting for, can't wait to see the rest of your collection, if they're as beautiful as this one the credit card will be getting some use - hope Hochanda have some amazing offers. On a side note, love your craft room wallpaper that we can glimpse in picture one. Sue XXX

  60. Hiya Phill.
    I'd heard that you were launching your first set of dies so was really intrigued what they would be, would they match your stamps, would they be sentiments bla bla bla, and now I know 😊

    Congratulations Phill, looking forward to March when we see you laugh your way through your demo shows on HOCHANDA - yeah !

    Enjoy your launch Phill, and I'll enjoy the stamps of yours that I'm waiting to be delivered today I hope.

    Have a good day.

    I Just Love Your Truly Tremendous New Range Of Dies And Like You Mentioned Your Range Works Extremely Well With Sue's Dies. I Noticed Them At First While Watching The Short Video On YouTube And You Introduced Them, I Know Your Very Busy But It Would Be So Great To See More Videos With Yourself And Fantastic Products On YouTube.
