  2. Crafty Terri says:

    I want.. I need the Vintage Village die. It is Sept. 19th and I have not seen it anywhere yet.

  3. Angie says:

    I just saw the Village set on the Sizzix website. I love the buildings, but I’m wondering what size each building can be. A regular Bigz die isn’t very large to fit all the pieces. The one that looks like a church is different! I can see many uses for this trio.

  4. hi! love the Christmas dies! especially the house one.

  5. Caroline Alexander says:

    Tim Holtz, you are a revelation! Every year, I am responsible for the table decorations for the Victorville, Ca chapter of Soroptimist. This year our theme is Christmas Village, and I knew from the start that I wanted to make village buildings for those centerpieces. And what to my wondering eyes do I see? You’ve designed village dies for Sizzix! Genius and timely! Thanks for your amazing brain!

  6. Karen Stalker says:

    Tim, Can you tell us if these villages are going to be special order from SIzzix? The Brenda Walton one was a special order and it was kind of a pain to get. I am hoping it will be much easier to purchase these village dies. Thank you. I love the design.

  13. JeanFB says:

    Oh my goodness I adore the vintage dwelling and all the accessories! I inherited a number of “Putzen” houses from my great aunt and have always loved them. These remind me of them and I can’t wait to create a village of new ones with all of the goodies in my stash!

  14. Jil L says:

    That Vintage dwelling is to die for. I have that at the top of my list. I love the idea of changing it up with an additional die. I am also loving so many of the others like the movers & shapers mini tea time. That will fit on my cards so much better. Jil
