    For this Tuesday, I suggest discovering the kit of the new Big Shot Plus … The Dies supplied in the kit are great! You will discover several ones on this new page.

    This page was inspired by Amélie's page, a fantastic friend, by keeping her layout with place mats at the top and bottom. I chose black and white pictures of my cat in company of my little Cléo, which contrast perfectly with the Craft Asylum paper collection. These papers are also supplied in the kit of new Big Shot Plus!!

    I added lightness with butterfly, flower and heart dies… I chose a golden title and some relief embellishments, like the badge, the little dowries, the chipboard hearts and stars.

    The peculiarity of this page is its background paper in priplack: thick printed plastic... as well as some labels on the theme of cats…

    I hope you like this page!

    Have a good day!

    Pour ce mardi, je vous propose de découvrir le kit  de la nouvelle big shot plus… Il y a des dies fourni dans le kit qui sont extras!

    Vous pouvez en découvrir plusieurs sur cette page de scrap.

    Cette page a été inspiré par une page d'Amélie, une super scrappeuse, en gardant sa mise en page avec les napperon en haut et en bas. J'ai choisi des photos en noir & blanc de mon chat avec ma petite Cléo, qui contraste parfaitement avec la collection de papier Craft Asylum. Ces papiers sont au aussi fournis dans le kit de la nouvelle big Shot Plus!!

    J'ai ajouté de la légèreté avec les dies papillon, fleur et le coeur… J'ai choisi un titre doré et quelques embellissement en relief, comme le badge, les littles dots et les chipboards coeurs et étoile.

    La particularité de cette page est son papier de fond en priplack, plastique épais imprimé… ainsi que quelques étiquettes sur le thème des chats…

    J'espère que cette page vous aura plus!
    Bonne journée

  • A loved layout

    Monday, 13 April, 2015

    Spring is here and brighter colour and cheerful layouts are in order!

    I often print out many photos from my mobile in smaller sizes for mini albums. Not all of them make it in to the album so I have some photos laying around that are pretty special but just simply were the wrong size. But they are perfect for my favourite size of scrapbook layout, 6 x 8. So I grab one of those photos and I started die cutting!

    For this layout, I used :

    I used Simple Stories papers from their collection I AM. I die cut two chevron borders out of the solid papers using one of the Decorative Trim dies. I layered them on the white card and glue them at their centres. I die cut thre banners and glue them on the left hand side.

    I used the other trim die from the same set to decorate the bottom left corner. The word is from a pattered paper I had left over.

    The little heart on the top right corner is from the left over of the bottom left border. The flowers is from the Flowers Intricate 2.

    Simple but bright and spring full of colour! I hope you like it!

    Die used for entire quilt top: Half-Square Triangles, 4 1/2in Finished Square.

    It's all done! The almost-finished quilt came away to Wales with us for the Easter weekend along with the zip-up pouch from my previous post containing binding kit. In the spare moments in between hunting for eggs I managed to finish hand-sewing the binding on the back.

    It was great to be able to get some photos of it in lovely surroundings.

    We're back home now and the quilt is finally on our bed - of course as soon as it was completed the weather warmed right up and so it's not needed as much for warmth as it might have been a week or two ago, typical!

    I'm so pleased with it, the vibrant colours really brighten up the whole room. It feels like a real achievement - it's the biggest thing I've ever sewn. It has taken a good couple of months to complete but without my Big Shot I think I'd still be cutting out triangles now!

    Now that this has been ticked off the list I can have a proper play with my new Big Shot Plus that arrived just before we went away - yay!

  • Love you Card

    Sunday, 12 April, 2015

    Hello Sizzix friends!
    Last week I received my new Sizzix Big Shot Plus and I decided to try some new dies from the starter kit to realize a romantic card.
    Every day, every month, every season are perfect to say 'love you' to somebody.
    I used also some new springy dies coming out in these days and some cardstock sheets contained in the Sizzix Plus starter kit.
    The final result is so pretty!!

    You need:
    Sizzix Big Shot Machine Only (Powder Blue & Teal) (657900)
    Sizzix Big Shot Plus Starter Kit (White & Gray) (660515) new!
    Green cardstock
    Glitter tape
    Heart  sticker

    The cardstock sheets contained in the starter kit are so lovely: they are in pastel colours and I love every single pattern. In the kit you can also find some dies, for exemple this decorative trim, isn't it so beautiful?!
    I hope you like this card.
    Happy sunday!

     *Per i lettori italiani*

    Buongiorno a tutti!
    La scorsa settimana ho ricevuto la nuova Sizzix Big Shot Plus e ho deciso di provare alcune nuove fustelle contenute nello starter kit per realizzare un biglietto d'amore.
    Ogni giorno, ogni mese, ogni stagione è perfetta per dire ti amo a qualcuno.
    Per realizzare questo biglietto ho usato anche delle fustelle in uscita in questi giorni e dei cartoncini contenuti anch'essi nel kit di #SizzixPlus.
    Nastro adesivo glitterato
    Adesivo a cuore

    I cartoncini Craft Asylum contenuti nel kit sono adorabili: sono realizzati con colori pastello e in diverse fantasie. Quelli in formato A4 sono ideali per progetti Plus.
    Nel kit #SizzixPlus troverete anche diverse fustelle tra cui questo bordo decorativo che ho subito scelto di usare.
    Spero questo biglietto vi sia piaciuto.
    Buona domenica!

  • Simple Birdie Cake Toppers

    Sunday, 12 April, 2015

    Hello! This week I've been spending lots of time in my kitchen making treats and cakes. We had these white chocolate and marshmallow rice crispie cakes on Easter Sunday. I knew they needed sprinkles on top, but I also thought I would make some simple birdie cake toppers using the Big Shot Plus Machine.

    Supplies used:

    I wanted to keep the toppers simple so used pink card stock for the main body of the bird, then white card stock for the wing.

    I sandwiched a cocktail stick between two birds and fixed together with double sided sticky tape.

    These are so so easy to make, I think I want to put them in all my food! You could even write a name in the wing and use them as place settings.

    Have a good week - I hope it is filled with lots of treats!


  • "Together" layout by Gerry van Gent

    Saturday, 11 April, 2015

    Hello Sizzix Peeps!
    Did you have a great week so far? I hope so :-)

    Well, I am an Instagram fan and I love posting photos there taken
    with my phone. Some of the photos I take are really faves and worth
    scrapping. Just like this photo of my kids - had to treasure up it on a layout.
    For my blog post today I used the absolutely awesome Sizzix Big Shot Plus 
    machine and some of the awesome dies included in the Starter Kit!

    660515 Sizzix Big Shot Plus Starter Kit (White & Grey)
    660473 Sizzix Thinlits Die Set Decorative Trim #2
    660218 Sizzix Thinlits Die Set Handwritten Love
    658526 Sizzix Bigz Die Elisse
    *      *      *

    I began creating the layout by die cutting the scalloped tags - two of each size.
    For the tags I used corrugated cardboard which I left "natural" ...

    From the Decorative Trim #2 die set I used the hearts border....
    I die cut it a few times and I outlined some of the hearts with white pen.

    The beautiful flower die from the Starter Kit was die cut in total 6 times.
    For each flower I used two different colors.


    I wanted the background to be more playful so....
    I cut separately some of the hearts from Decorative Trim #2
     and adhered them on the background.

    I am so in love with the butterflies from the Starter Kit....
    they are so intricate and pretty!
    For my project I die cut the butterflies lots of times and 
    I simply layered them - I prepared 3 "sets" of butterflies...
    One of the layered butterflies was cut in the middle and used 
    for decoration at both (left/right) edges.

    Prima Marketing flowers
    Prima Marketing Bloom Girls Spray
    Ingvild Bolme Metallic Embellies

    Thank you so much for visiting us today!
    Have a creative Sunday!

  • Flower Power!

    Saturday, 11 April, 2015

    today I have a colorful post for you!
    I mixed a lot of cut outs of the 'Meadow-Flower-Die' from different cardstocks, vellum and fabric.

    I started to puzzle some mixed flowers together and created a wonderful bundle of joy. I added some leaves, twigs and sparkling confetti and think they suit perfectly for Birthday Cards!

    I used:
    A Big Shot, SIZZIX Thinlits Die Set - Meadow Flower, different colored cardstocks, some cut outs from leaves and twigs, vellum, vellumpockets, fabric, confetti and gluedots.

    I choosed a more muted color combination for a small notebook.

    I hope you'll like this cute Meadow Flower.

    Have a lovely weekend!

  • Smiles are free - cardmaking with a new embossing folder

    Saturday, 11 April, 2015

    Hey everybody,
    it´s me again, Julia. Last week I got a new beautiful embossing folder with a lot of pretty hearts. I sure had to use as soon as possible. So I made this quick card. To be honest, I made two of them. Because they are so easy to make. ;) And yeah, I´m sorry. My latest projects are mostly pink, but I promise… next week there is a project with less of this color (but I love it ;) ).

    This is what I used:
    White Cardstock and a blank card, watercolors and watercolor paper, paperclip from Freckled Fawn, Glossy Acent (I love this stuff), phrases stickers from Heidi Swapp and some pink vellum

    All you have to do is make a mess with your watercolors on your watercolor paper and let it dry. Take this pretty embossing folder and wrap it around your handmade background and let your Big Shot Plus do all the magic. :)

    Last but not least I took my Glossy Accents to give some of the embossed hearts a shiny effect. I think it looks pretty cute! After I have placed the paperclip I thought that I need some black elements on the left side of the card to get a visual balance.

    Next week I have a pretty cool Scrapbooking Layout for you as an inspiration. So I hope to see you next week again! :) Have a nice day, xo Julia


    Hallo ihr Lieben,
    hier ist wieder Julia, wie jeden Samstag um diese Uhrzeit. Ich weiss, momentan ist alles sehr Rosa was ich mache. Aber ich steh leider total drauf! :) Und als ich letzte Woche diesen tollen Embossing Folder mit den Herzchen bekam, musste ich ihn einfach sofort einsetzen. ;) Nächste Woche gibt es was mit weniger Rosa. I PROMISE! ;)

    Für die Karte habe ich folgende Materialien verwendet:
    Cardstock in Weiß und einen Kartenrohling, Aquarellfarben und Aquarellpapier, Paperclip von Freckled Fawn, Glossy Accent, Phrases Stickers von Heidi Swapp, pinkes Vellum und

    Um den Hintergrund zu gestalten nehmt ihr einfach eure Aquarellfarben und schön viel Wasser, nehmt ein wenig Farbe auf und malt einfach drauf los. Es muss gar nicht ordentlich sein, dass macht es umso charmanter. :) Habt ihr das gemacht lasst ihr es trocknen und nudelt euer Aquarellpapier mit dem Embossingfolder durch die Big Shot. 

    Alles aufkleben, Fertig. :) Um meinen Karten (ich habe nämlich zwei gemacht weil es so schnell und einfach ging) noch den letzten Schliff zu verpassen, habe ich mit dem Glossy Accents Fläschchen noch einige der Herzchen betont. So bekommen sie noch einen tollen glänzenden Schimmer. Nachdem ich die Papierklammer befestigt hatte, entschied ich mich noch dazu ein paar weitere Herzchen als visuelle Balance einzuschwärzen. So kommt alles wieder ins Gleichgewicht. :)

    Nächste Woche habe ich ein (wenig Rosanes ;) ) Layout für euch und ich hoffe ihr schaut wieder vorbei. :) Habt einen schönen Tag, xo Julia

  • Houses on a hill card

    Friday, 10 April, 2015

    Hi Sizzix friends!

    Today I want to show you an easy colourful card with a nice message. I have used the Home sweet home dies designed by Craft Asylum for Sizzix and two more dies designed by Paula Pascual for Sizzix.

    To make this beautiful card I have used the following supplies:

    My Big Shot machineHome sweet home, Oval and Winter Borders dies, white cardstock,
     kraft paper, some scrapbooking papers, lace ribbon, sparkly paper and watercolours.

    First I have cut the cardstock 5 mm smaller than the kraft paper (the base of the card). Then 
    I have coloured the cardstock using blue watercolours like the sky. 

    Then I have die-cut the different sized houses and I have chosen the dark pink 
    for the windows and roofs.

    As I want the houses to be on a hill I have decided to use a half of an oval die as the hill, die-cut 
    in a green flowered paper. (The magnet platform is very useful with this kind of dies) 

    Then I have all the die-cuts to create the card.

    In the end I have decided to stamp this message “Que las estrellas iluminen tu camino” that in English would be similar to: “May the stars show you the way”.  I have added little stars that I have die-cut in sparkly white paper to highlight the message. 

    And finally this is the result:

    Here are some details:

    It's really fun to play with this dies !!!

    Here is the hill !!!

    Small stars on the sky !!!

    I hope you have enjoyed this colourful and beautiful card. Thanks for your visit!

    Have a creative and happy Friday!


    ¡Hola a todos!

    Hoy os quería enseñar una tarjeta muy alegre con un bonito mensaje. Para realizarla he utilizado el troquel Home sweet home diseñado por Craft Asylum para Sizzix así como dos troqueles más diseñados por Paula Pascual. 

    Os dejo con un sencillo paso a paso de cómo la he realizado: 

    Los materiales son: mi Big Shot machine, el troquel Home sweet home, el Oval y el Winter Borders, cartulina blanca texturizada, papel kraft, retales de papel de scrapbooking, puntilla, papel purpurina y las acuarelas.

    Primero he cortado la cartulina blanca 5 mm más pequeña que el papel kraft (base de la tarjeta). Una vez cortada  le he dado pinceladas en tonos azules para simular el cielo.

    Después he troquelado las diferentes casas utilizando un tono rosa oscuro para ventanas y tejados. 
    Como quería que las casas estuvieran en una pequeña colina, he utilizado el troquel de óvalo utilizando la mitad. La base magnética es muy práctica con estos troqueles.

    Ahora ya lo tengo todo preparado para montar la tarjeta.

    Al final decidí estampar este bonito mensaje y para reforzarlo troquelé unas mini estrellas en papel purpurina. Y así ha quedado:

    Los detalles:  las casas (es muy divertido jugar con estos troqueles), la colina y las mini estrellas!!!

    He utilizado los siguientes productos Sizzix:  
    Espero que os haya gustado esta alegre tarjeta. ¡Gracias por la visita!

    ¡Feliz y creativo viernes!
