Introducing Tiny Town Series

We think you're going to fall in love with everything you see today!  After the popularity of last year's Petite Places line, we're bringing you a fabulous new series that will allow you to create the cutest little buildings, and the best part is that these are large enough to be used as treat boxes too!  We'd like to welcome you to Tiny Town…

Are you just beside yourself with all this cuteness?  Before we get onto all of the projects, I have one more announcement for you today…

Grab Bags

We are also excited to share that a popular feature from last year will be available only as long as supplies last!  We are bringing back Grab Bags, a fun way for us to clear out some of the extra products we have in our warehouse.  When you add this item to your cart you will receive a large reusable fabric tote full of paper crafting goodies!  

This year we are offering TEN versions of the bags for sale.  Last year, some of you surprised us and ordered more than one, and possibly had duplicate contents.  This time we have created ten different bags, each with different contents so you can purchase two with more confidence.

Paper Bags 1 through 5 will contain nothing but paper!  A few pounds of paper!  These will be a mix of several different patterned papers from over the years.  

Grab Bags 1 through 5 will be filled with random other items such as stamps, dies, punches, embellishments and more!  You'll be like a kid on Christmas morning when your Grab Bag(s) arrive!

The Details:

  • Grab Bags will be available for sale on February 15th.
  • They will retail for $25 each.
  • Each Grab Bag will contain approximately $50 worth of product (or more).
  • These are available for a limited time while supplies last.
  • The product contained in the Grab Bags is final sale (no returns, refunds or exchanges).
  • TEN versions of the grab bags will be available.  Paper Grab Bags 1-5 contain nothing but paper, while Grab Bags 1-5  contain a mix of any paper crafting supplies under the sun.
  • All of the totes feature the same design on the front (shown above), just the contents of the bags differs.


Now, you are in for a real treat as the team shares a whole village of projects they made with the new Tiny Town collection!

Ashley says, "Betsy has done it again! Just when you thought the Petite Places series was amazing, she has created another new fabulous collection called Tiny Town. I love how these new dies are small, but large enough to display, hold gifts, act as place settings, and so much more. Head on over to my blog and see my tiny church filled with yummy gummy bunnies!"

Betsy says, "We've had so much fun over the past year with the Petite Places collection and I just don't want it to end. So I say we super-size the fun! The Tiny Town die collection is perfectly sized for treats, favors, or even creating those beloved vintage putz-style houses that you can have a ball decorating and embellishing for the seasons. I'm excited to see where this collection takes us this year!"

Danielle says, "The new Tiny Town series will be so versatile… I can already see the multitude of uses for these adorable houses and buildings to come! Light them up, make gift boxes out of them, or attach them to a gift as an embellishment…and SO much more! I've used one today to add a bit of charm to a housewarming gift. Swing by!"

Dawn says, "You are not going to believe how cute — and easy to assemble! — these darling little buildings are, in Betsy's newest series!  But not only are they cute, they're functional too!  They can be used for treat/gift packaging, and are sure to make any recipient smile!  I created a little hostess gift with mine, and tucked a little sweet treat inside!  Stop by my blog to see all the details!"

Heather says, "How much fun is this new Tiny Towns series going to be? The pieces from the collection are also perfect for adorning the front of a card and I did just that with the project that I am sharing today that includes a fun little extra detail to send a blessing to your loved one…"

Kay says, "If you've loved Betsy’s Petite Places series, you are going to fall head over hills for this slightly larger version! There are so many fun projects you can create with this die set. Stop by and see how I decorated my little church with flowers and vines to create a hanging ornament for my Easter Tree!"

Laurie says, "When I was little, we used to go to a place called Tiny Town in Colorado.  So when I saw the name of these new dies, I got a little excited!  I always loved the little buildings and so these new dies are just too fun for that same reason.  This church is so amazing and so versatile and when I saw it finished in all white, I knew exactly where I would put it.  I keep a tray on my dining room table and decorate it for each season.  I'd say I am ready for spring any day now!"
