Today I thought I would share a "BEHIND the SCENE"
of the debut of the 18 new Fiskars/Teresa Collins
I instantly "clicked" with my friends at Fiskars. I was thrilled to design stamps with them. I enjoyed our phone conversations and appreciated their belief in me and my style. They had come to me about doing a "product" together and I knew I couldn't because it was in the same "design category" as something I had coming out that they did not know about. I was disappointed, because I figured I had blown my chance with them. Crazy to turn them down, but I had already committed to something else.
Then I got a email. They wanted to know if I wanted to design my own collection of utility craft knifes, scissors, punches, and more. It was one of those "defining moments" in my design career. I immediately said YES and we arranged for a phone conversation.
My mind was racing at the possibilities. I loved that they wanted me to stay true to me and what I would personally love and use. Fiskars is aware that I teach thousands of students a year and I use punches in some fashion at every single event/ workshop.
This is my ACTUAL gold cart that I use to roll to where I am creating. Please notice...
CRAFTING ESSENTIALS deserve
to be PRETTY.
I sent this photo to Fiskars several weeks ago. They had sent me my products to create with. Yes, the GOLD TC trimmer is the prettiest trimer I have ever laid my eyes on.
