Howdy fellow crafters!
It's been many months in the making and I'm thrilled to announce a new home for Karen Burniston branded products, and it's easy to remember -
That's right! After fifteen years of licensing my products to other companies I was ready to take the plunge to go out on my own. I've teamed up with my good friend Tanya Kostynuk, who owns Riley & Company, to form a brand new small business (KB Riley, LLC) to produce and sell my die designs. Between us we have decades of experience in product design, education, retail store ownership, manufacturing and distribution. Plus, we have a ton of fun working together!
Our first release is 12 fabulous die sets, including new designs and a couple of expanded and re-released favorites (been looking for the Flower Pot? It's back! With new flowers and a new "smiley" feature to make assembly even easier)
The dies are arriving soon to our Kansas office and we're taking website pre-orders right now for shipping June 1st.
Store orders start shipping next week, so if you have a local store in your area, please let them know about our new company as we do offer wholesale.
For social media we're sticking with my existing channels for YouTube, Pinterest, Instagram and Twitter, (links at the top of this blog) so if you already follow me on those channels you're good. For Facebook I'm keeping my Karen Burniston Designer page because it's chock full of great inspiration for my licensed dies, but for the new stuff we've started a fresh new Facebook Page and we'd love for you to give it a "like".
Well I don't want to spend too much time chit-chatting here on my blog when you could be perusing the new website and watching the NINE (yep, 9) new assembly videos for the new release. While you're on the website, be sure to check out the Instructions Page, where you'll find downloadable PDF sheets for all the interactive dies.
The fun is just beginning!
