Sizzix is synonymous with high quality in the crafting world. Their products are widespread and their reputation has been long built on producing quality products with partnerships with some of the biggest names in the business. Tim Holtz and Stampin’ Up! are two of the largest brands that Sizzix manufactures designs for.
I own quite a few products from Sizzix and many of them have been with me since I first started crafting back in 2009. A product that stands the test of time and is not constantly wearing out not only saves crafters money, but also helps us create memories to last a lifetime.
The Thinlits dies from Sizzix are wafer thin dies that can be used in any traditional manual & electric die cutting machine. You can cut a variety of materials including felt, fabric, thin metal sheets, and card stock. The Sizzix Damask & Scallop Border die (shown above), a beautiful border die that produces an extremely intricate cut, is just one of many available Thinlits designs.
Let’s test these dies out and see if they live up to the Sizzix standard of quality and precision.
- Thin dies are easy to store and transport, and don’t take up much room in the craft space.
- Cuts a variety of materials
- Sized perfectly for all projects from cards to scrapbook pages.
- Versatile designs that can be translated for any style project
- The negative space of the intricate design can have a hard time separating from the design
- A shim may be needed to add pressure through the machine to get a clean cut
- You will need to make multiple passes through the die cutting machine to cut a long bordered design
The Sizzix Damask & Scallop Border die has a MSRP of $19.99, and is currently available from Scrapbook.com for $15.99.
