Since discovering framelits, I’ve struggled to keep them in place when cutting. I was determined to find a solution other than tape. Last year I purchased the “Genius” platform from Lifestyle Crafts and I was very disappointed that it didn’t work as expected. Now Sizzix has provided a new platform to Stampin’ Up. I felt like the Genius problem was that it wasn’t a full magnetic sheet, but rather a bunch of smaller magnets spaced across the back of the platform which caused my framelits to “jump” into places I didn’t want them to go. When I watched this video of the new Sizzix product it appears the framelits stay where they are placed, which makes me think it’s a solid magnetic sheet. I haven’t seen this product in person yet, but I’m pretty excited about it and thought I’d share. Have a happy Stampin’ weekend!
**I just wanted to add an update to this. I read on a demonstrator board that this platform has 18 magnets. I was SO hoping it wasn’t made like the Lifestyle Crafts model, but it may be. I’m not going to purchase it until I see it in person and confirm it works as it should. **
