Sizzix Dies: Accordion Album & Frame Label

I am excited that the new Sizzix Hearth and Home collection is now shipping to stores. Definitely check with your local or online retailer to see if they ordered them. (If not, how about suggesting it? Can't hurt!)

I returned earlier this week from the Collins Rep Group Fall Education event, where I taught a project using the new Accordion Album and Frame Label Dies. The retailers were excited about the dies and especially the ease of assembly. 

Want to watch me assemble one? Here is a video that Scrapbook.com filmed at the CHA-S show:


One of the things I mention in the video is that you do not need to stop at four panels and here's a perfect visual of the album made with six panels by Gretchen - just click on the photo for a full tutorial of this adorable Halloween album on her blog.

Here are a couple of albums I have made. The new Evergreen Tree die fits perfectly in the album as an option!

Another great decorator die for this album is the new Fancy Frame die, which can be used flat on a page (Here it is with a heart from the Love Sizzlits Set in the center)

Or punch a hole and hang just the frame part of the Fancy Frame to make a great title:

Here are the four dies used for these projects:

As soon as you spot these dies in the stores can you shoot me an e-mail and/or post on my blog or Facebook wall telling me where you saw them? I want to collect a list of "spotted at" stores to direct those folks that e-mail me asking where to buy! That goes for retailers, too. Let me know when you have them and if you're willing to ship!
I also love seeing photos of the projects you've made. You can upload them to the Sizzix Flickr Gallery and you might be chosen to be featured on the Sizzix Blog for an I Spy Saturday! I will also be featuring some giveaways here on my blog once I get a supply of the new dies, so definitely stay tuned for that!
