  • Happy Birthday Long Label Card

    Saturday, 5 April, 2014


    
    Hi everyone! Today I have an easy card to share with you using the Sizzix Long Labels Thinlits Die #659131 and Darkroom Door Stamps!


    The Long Labels dies are perfect for adding sentiments to cards! I know I'll be using this die a lot! Here's how I made this card:

    1. Stamp the Darkroom Door Swirls Background onto light purple cardstock using Archival Deep Purple ink pad. Sponge the same ink around the edges using an ink blending tool. Adhere to green cardstock and then onto a folded dark purple card.
    2. Die cut a label from the Long Labels #659131 Thinlits die set using green cardstock.
    3. Stamp a sentiment from the Darkroom Door Simple Sayings stamp set using Archival Deep Purple inkpad. Adhere to the centre of the card to complete!

    How simple is that! But the ornate ends of this die make it so beautiful. I love how these dies are great to use up left over pieces of card stock too, so you could die cut a lot of labels in advance just using left overs and have them on hand already when you need to make a card.

    Hope you've enjoyed today's card! Thanks for stopping by!

  • Lace background & other girly accents

    Friday, 4 April, 2014

    
    Hello! 
    My name is Karola Witczak - scrapbooker and cardmaker from Poland. I live in Gorzow Wlkp. city, near to Germany border with my hubby Martin, our sweet, 9 y.o daughter Rose and our furry friends. All I can say shortly about myself is: totally addicted papercrafter, who love to try new techniques, products, colors and patterns, however, always staying true to my "modern shabby chic" style.
    I am thrilled being a part of Sizzix UK Creative Bloggers team and today, with a huge pleasure, I wanted to share with you my first project.

    For today's post I created a layout with my daughter's photos. Usually on most of my layouts, you may notice portrait photos of her. I really love creating such a pages to highlight her beauty and personality. This time I decided to make a lace background and using ornate frame die to create special photo matting and additional decoration on my page. Flowers are my one of the favorite elements, so it's obvious I need beautiful leaves for them, right? A piece of vintage lace and beautiful antique letters complete this layout and makes the page 100% girly.


    Let's see a bit closer...

    Sizzix supplies used:
    657558 Framelits Die Set 3PK - Frame, Oval w/Ornate Edges by Pete Hughes

    If you love openwork motifs on your projects like me, use Framework dies to make the whole bakcground lacy. Thanks to repeatable pattern, you can combine several parts into one complete fantastic background - it's very easy! On my page, you may notice such a repeatable border, created using Trellis Framework die - on the top and the bottom of the layout. For a part of my title I used absolutely amazing Brenda Walton's Antiqua Capital Letters dies - they are beautiful and sufficiently large to create titles on 12 x 12 layouts. I used Core'dinations cardstock to cut out "YOU" word and used sandpaper to add more shabby look to my title. My idea to make the page more lacy is adding more lacy elements - I know, obvious :) But please take a look at this peach lace border I added on Framework pattern at the top and the bottom. Just a small piece, but makes the page even more feminine and interesting. I cut out the border using Sizzlits Decorative Strip Die - Vintage Lace.


    I love everything filigree and lacy, so Frame, Oval w/Ornate Edges Framelits die turned out the perfect shape for matting photos on my today's page. I cut out it twice from a peach Core'dinations cardstock and then I cut one of them in a half. I used these two parts of the ornate frame motif to decorate the left part of the page, near first part of the title (Pretty). This is my favorite tip how to multiply embellies :) Just cut in a few parts any die cut element and this way you may have lots of additional embellies in a very easy, quick and cheap way. The second ornate frame I used as a matt under main, oval photo.


    Talking about flowers, you can not forget about the beautiful leaves. My favorite leaf shape are recently those which are cutted using Tim Holtz Garden Greens Bigz die. Usually I cut the whole branch ina few parts, as you can see on my page. This time I cut out the leaves only 2 times making a whole lot tiny flowers to add here and there, under the flowers. My tiny tip for make the leaves more dimensional is very easy: just curl each leaf and apply a drops of glue only on a flat leaves parts, then adhere it to the background. 



    Thank you for visit us today! 
    Have a wonderful, creative weekend! 
    Karola

    ****************************************************

    Witam serdecznie wszystkich polskojęzycznych fanów Sizzix! 
    Nazywam się Karola Witczak, mieszkam w Polsce, w Gorzowie Wielkopolskim z moim partnerem Marcinem, naszą 9-letnią słodką córcią Różą oraz trójką naszych futrzanych przyjaciół. To, co mogłabym krótko o sobie powiedzieć to: uzależniona papercrafterka, która uwielbia próbować nowych technik, produktów, kolorów i wzorów, jednocześnie pozostając wierna swojemu stylowi "modern shabby chic".

    Ogromnie się cieszę, że mogę być częścią zespołu Creative Bloggerów dla Sizzix UK i dziś z wielką przyjemnością chciałabym podzielić się z Wami moim pierwszym projektem. 
    Na dziś przygotowałam layout ze zdjęciami mojej córki. Zwykle na większości moich scrapów zauważycie podobne, portretowe zdjęcia Róży. Uwielbiam tworzyć tego typu layouty, oddając hołd jej urodzie i osobowości. Tym razem postanowiłam stworzyć layout z ażurowym tłem, ozdobnymi ramkami i kilkoma dodatkowymi koronkowymi elementami. Ponieważ uwielbiam kwiaty, potrzebuję do nich pięknych liści, takie właśnie znalazły się dziś na mojej pracy.

    Wykorzystane produkty Sizzix:

    657558 Framelits Die Set 3PK - Frame, Oval w/Ornate Edges by Pete Hughes

    Jeśli lubicie ażurowe elementy w swoich pracach, jak ja - użyjcie któregoś z wykrojników z serii Framework, aby stworzyć w projektach koronkowe tło. Ponieważ wzory w tej serii są powtarzalne, wycięte motywy z łatwością dają się łączyć, w jedno kompletne tło. Na moim scrapie stworzyłam bordery wykorzystując wykrojnik Trellis Framework na górze i na dole strony. Do stworzenia części tytułu użyłam 
    przepięknych liter z zestawu wykrojników z alfabetem Antiqua Capital Letters. Wycięłam je z brystolu z teksturą Core'dinations, a na koniec dodałam przecierki wykonane za pomocą papieru ściernego. Ten zestaw alfabetowy jest doskonały do tworzenia tytułów na scrapach 30 x 30 cm - literki są odpowiednio duże i wyraziste, a jednocześnie filigranowe i eleganckie. Kolejnym koronkowym, kobiecym elementem jaki dodałam do mojego scrapa jest cieniutki ażurowy border wycięty wykrojnikiem Sizzlits Decorative Strip Die - Vintage Lace. Kiedy chcemy dodać lekkości i koronek do pracy... dodajmy po prostu więcej koronek - to oczywiste! Dzięki wykrojnikom, możemy w 5 minut stworzyć piękną koronkę w kolorze jaki potrzebujemy.
    Ponieważ uwielbiam wszystko, co jest ażurowe, zawijasowe, koronkowe, postanowiłam użyć wykrojnika Framelits - Frame, Oval w/Ornate Edges, aby stworzyć dwie bliźniacze ramki do mojej pracy. Jedną z nich zastosowałam zwyczajnie - jako ramkę do zdjęcia, natomiast drugą przecięłam na pół i ozdobiłam tymi dwoma kawałkami ramki moją lewą stronę scraoa, nieopodal pierwszej części tytułu (Pretty). To mój ulubiony trik, pozwalający w magiczny sposób rozmnażać dodatki, dzieląc je na mniejsze części. To bardzo łatwy, szybki i tani sposób na to, aby mieć więcej podobnych elementów na pracy. 
    Wspominałam wcześniej o kwiatkach - wydaje mi się, że nie potrafię się bez nich obejść. Apropos kwiatków, nie możemy zapominać o pięknych listkach. Mój ulubiony kształt liści w ostatnim czasie to te wycięte z wykrojnika Bigz Die - Garden Greens by Tim Holtz. Zwykle mając taką rozbudowaną gałązkę, rozcinam ją na kilka części, uzyskując mnóstwo małych listków, które wklejam tu i tam, pod kwiatki na mojej pracy. Mój mały trik nadający listkom objętości i trójwymiarowości, polega na tym, aby każdy z listków wywinąć do góry i aplikować klej od spodu wyłącznie na płaskich częściach listka. Po naklejeniu, listki będą pięknie odstawać od podłoża.

    Dzięki, że odwiedziliście nas dzisiaj! 
    Życzę Wam wspaniałego, kreatywnego weekendu!

  • Circles, Circles & More Circles!

    Friday, 4 April, 2014
    




    Hello,

    What an incredibly fast two weeks this has been since I last posted!

    I often get asked what is the one crafting item I couldn't be without...

    Well of course there are a few but it got me thinking! What items do I use over and over and the answer has to be my Circle Framelits.  I use them ALL the time, probably EVERYDAY! They are the one thing I couldn't be without! I mean who can actually cut a circle without them???

    So whilst coming up with my projects to share with you this week I decided to make use of the Circle Framelits a bit more and make a couple of simple but effective cards!


    The first card is a New Baby card.  I have added the wording by using the Block Talk Bigz XL Die. Then simply cut various size cirlces and adhered them onto the card, some with 3D foam pads to give the card dimension.


    The second card could be used for any occasion, although again it would make a lovely New Baby card.  This time i have layered the patterned circles onto White cardstock circles to give a fresh look.


    The beauty of these circles - You can use them for any occasion, simply by changing the patterned papers and wording.  Great if you have lots to make.

    Well, that is all from me today. 

    Have a lovely weekend.

    Until next time ....

    Happy Crafting! 



  • Baby Binder Album

    Friday, 4 April, 2014

    Hi Everyone! This is Anna.
    I wanted to share my album with you today.  Oh I just absolutely enjoyed making this one!
    I created this album to document those special moments between the new parents and their triplets!!! Yeeee!!!
    My idea was to leave places for them to add the photos themselves. I kept this album very simple, but the possibilities to decorate any pages with Sizzix dies are endless.
    Have a look… Here’s the cover page:

    Anna Draicchio - Sizzix Big shot - mini album baby - nascita - gemelli (1)

    To make the cover I used an A4 ring binder, that would allow to document the memories without having to bind the pages- simply punch the holes with a hole punch.
    I completely covered this ring binder with a piece of upholstery fabric.
    I added a Tag with the names of babies and I cut out also a paper Doily and a felt Heart.

    And here are some inside pages:

    Anna Draicchio - Sizzix Big shot - mini album baby - nascita - gemelli (2)

    I created some embellishments using the dies of Starter Kit. That Starter Kit dies has gotten a lot of use over the last year!
    I cant stop using them! They are both wonderful and can be used for many different types of projects.

    Anna Draicchio - Sizzix Big shot - mini album baby - nascita - gemelli (3)
     
    Anna Draicchio - Sizzix Big shot - mini album baby - nascita - gemelli (4)
     
    For the last page I used some pockets with tags to writing the memories. The three smaller pockets are created with the beautiful Bigz Die - Envelope & Tag, Mini.

    **************************************
    Flag_of_Italy Per le amiche italiane! :)
    Ciao! Ecco un nuovo appuntamento con Anna.
    Oggi vorrei condividere un album speciale!
    Si tratta di un album che servirà a documentare i momenti più belli di due nuovi genitori e dei loro tre gemellini! Sì sì, sono tre, non è meraviglioso?!
    La mia idea di partenza è stata quella di creare un album dove i genitori potessero inserire loro stessi le foto dei bambini, che essendo tre, sarà tutto triplicato, anche le foto! Un mini album quindi non poteva bastare ed ho dovuto optare per un formato A4! :D
    Per fare ciò ho mantenuto l'album molto pulito e semplice, in modo che loro stessi potranno inserire altre pagine, se lo vorranno. Ma le possibilità di decorare le pagine con le fustelle Sizzix non mancano di certo.
    Date un'occhiata alla copertina. Per farla ho usato un raccoglitore ad anelli di formato A4, perchè avendo l'album molte pagine, una semplice rilegatura con anelli liberi, non sarebbe stata adatta.
    Essendo i bambini due femmine ed un maschio, ho voluto evitare i soliti colori pastello ed ho optato invece per uno stile più inconsueto ed un po' vintage. Ho ricoperto completamente questo quaderno con un pezzo di tessuto da arredamento, che gli conferisce l'aria vintage, da “quaderno dei ricordi”, appunto.
    Sulla copertina, decorata anche con un pezzo di tessuto a contrasto, nastri e passamanerie, ho aggiunto una grossa tag tagliata con la BigShot, su cui ho stampato i nomi dei bambini ed ho fustellato anche un centrino di carta ed un cuore rosso di feltro, che hanno completato il tutto.

    Per le pagine interne, ho creato alcuni abbellimenti utilizzando le versatili fustelle dello Starter Kit, che quest'anno ho usato molto.
    Per alcune pagine ho usato le adorabile Thinlits Die Set 7PK - Elephant & Giraffe and Thinlits Die Set 8PK - Lion & Monkey che sono fatte apposta per gli album dei bambini! Non posso smettere di usarle! Sono entrambi due set meravigliosi e possono essere utilizzati per diversi tipi di progetti.
    Per una delle ultime pagine ho creato poi dei piccoli “nascondigli” di alcuni pensieri e memorie. Per fare ciò mi sono servita di una bellissima fustella che crea delle piccole taschine con tag annessa.
    L'album è piaciuto e questo lo devo anche alla mia Big Shot che mi ha aiutato nel lavoro ;)

    Spero possiate trarne alcune idee e ispirazioni per fare i vostri album.
    Divertitevi a creare! :-)
    Baci, Anna

  • Applique fun

    Thursday, 3 April, 2014
    

    Hello again,
    I'm currently in London teaching workshops, again, at the Excel Exhibition Centre in London Docklands. The stand looks lovely again - so do stop by if you're in the area, and maybe join in one of the workshops - they're free, and they're fun!
    So what else have I been doing this week?
    Helping Eve make a cushion for her mummy for Mother's day
    sewing on a 'proper' sewing machine, ( sorry this photo will not rotate!) - and this was the result -

     
     
    Mummy was very happy with her present and very impressed that Eve had sewn it -she's just 5, and is developing a real love of sewing - it's so much fun and such a privilege to teach her.
    The die we used for the cushion was from the starter kit, and also http://www.sizzix.co.uk/product/658629/sizzix-bigz-die-butterfly-4. At the moment the shapes are only fused in place, but we may go back to it in the summer and stitch the shapes in place.
    I've also managed to applique elephants onto a towel for Abi so that she can enjoy swimming whist on holiday at Easter, and I used the Cuddly Creature Elephant - http://www.sizzix.co.uk/product/658638/sizzix-bigz-l-die-elephant, and used a fusible web on the wrong side of the fabric before cutting out the shapes,and then pressed them in place before stitching with a zig-zag stitch.
     
     
     

     
     
    So now all I have to do is decorate a towel for Oona, because I've already put butterflies on a towel for Eve, using the same die that she used for the cushion above.
    Well that's all for now - I hope you enjoy the rest of your week, and maybe I'll see you at the show.

  • So cute and Vintage !

    Thursday, 3 April, 2014


    Hello!

    Today let me show you a lay-out realized in the same style as last week. It seems that you appreciated it, right? This time I used softer colours, for a lightly vintage effect.

    Supply list:

    Cardstock: American Crafts
    Spray inks: Poussière de fée Infocréa
    Pencils: Woody Stabilo
    Stamps: Glitz Design, Stamper Anonymous, Florilèges Design
    Stencil: The Crafter's Workshop
    Stickers, glitters: Pause Créative
    Others: Gesso, sequins, old book page

    Die:

    658300 : Sizzix Big Shot Starter kit

    I worked my background using a 12x12 stencil and gesso. You can also use modeling paste for this technique.
    Once my background is dry, I sprayed a gold-coloured ink called Poussiere de Fée from the French brand Infocréa. The colour is spread in an irregular manner with a rubber stamp.
    Let’s stamp some patterns with black ink here and there, and add some pencil strokes and black splashes for more contrast.

    I cut out 3 beautiful butterflies out of an old book with my Sizzix die. I stapled them to keep the 3D effect.
    Then I simply added stickers, stamps and some sequins!




    Have a lovely day,

    Karine

    Bonjour !

    Aujourd'hui je vous propose une page réalisée dans le même style que la semaine passée, il me semble que vous l'avez bien appréciée, non ? Mais cette fois-ci dans des tons plus doux, légèrement vintage.
    Matériel :

    Cardstock : American Crafts
    Encres en spray : Poussière de fée Infocréa
    Crayon : Woody Stabilo
    Tampons : Glitz Design, Stamper Anonymous, Florilèges Design
    Pochoir : The Crafter's Workshop
    Stickers, paillettes : Pause Créative
    Divers : Gesso, sequins, page de vieux livre

    Die :

    658300 : Sizzix Big Shot Starter kit

    J'ai retravaillé ici mon fond de page avec un superbe pochoir 30x30cm appliqué au Gesso. Vous pouvez également utiliser de la Modeling Paste pour cette technique.
    Une fois mon fond sec, j'ai vaporisé de l'encre en spray or, ma préférée l'encre en spray Poussière de Fée de la marque française Infocréa. La couleur est étalée de façon irrégulière grâce à un tampon caoutchouc.
    Quelques impressions de tampons en noir ici et là, des coups de crayon pour donner du contraste, quelques éclaboussures également en noir.

    Dans un vieux livre j'ai découpé 3 beaux papillons avec mon die Sizzix. Ceux-ci sont agrafés pour conserver le volume.
    Ma page est ensuite simplement complétée avec des autocollants, des tampons et quelques sequins !

    Je vous souhaite une très bonne journée

  • My first post

    Wednesday, 2 April, 2014

    


    It is hard to believe that this is my very first blog post as a Creative Blogger here at Sizzix.co.uk It is a thrill to be part of the team and I look forward to spreading and receiving inspiration.

    I've been a card maker for more than 15 years and a scrapbooker for 9 years. At the moment I am probably more of a card maker than I am a scrapbooker but thankfully they aren't mutually exclusice so I might very well return to scrapbooking soon. To me working with paper, dies, embellishments and glue is not only a hobby it is an outlet for creativity as well as a source of joy and excitement.
     
    When I am not creating I live a life as a stay at home wife to my husband, Kristian who works with the United Nations in Bonn, Germany. That means that we live outside of our home country Denmark and have done so for the past five years. I have a masters in History with a minor in English but living in Germany has meant that I haven't been able to use my education. So I do a lot of crafting instead.
     
     
    For my first blog post I've created a card where I've used the Sizzix Frameworks Die - Courtyard as a stencil in order to create my patterned paper using Inka Gold: I simply diecut one of the Sizzix Frameworks Die - Courtyard and used my fingers to apply the Inka Gold through the openings in the diecut image. Since these new Framework dies have repeating patterns is was really easy to continue the stencilling across the paper.
     
     

    Supply list:
     
    Cardstock
    Inka Gold: Silver
    Ribbon
    Stamp: Papertrey Ink
    Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
    ---o---
     
    Det er svært at begribe, at jeg skriver min første blogpost som Creative Blogger her hos Sizzix. Det er en fornøjelse at være en del af teamet, og jeg glæder mig til at sprede og suge til mig af den inspiration, der flyder her.
     
    Jeg har været kortmager i mere end 15 år og scrapbooker i 9 år. For tiden er jeg nok mere kortmager end jeg er scrapbooker, men heldigvis udelukker det ene ikke det andet, og det kan ikke udelukkes, at jeg snart vender tilbage til scrapbøgerne. For mig er det at arbejde med papir, dies, pynt og lim ikke bare en hobby; det er også et sted hvor kreativiteten for frit løb og hvor jeg henter fornøjelse og glæde.
     
    Når jeg ikke er i gang med at skabe, lever jeg et liv som hjemmegående hustru. Min mand, Kristian arbejder for FN i Bonn. Det betyder altså, at vi bor udenfor Danmark, hvilket vi har gjort i de seneste fem år. Jeg har en kandidatgrad i historie med et bifag i engelsk, men desværre har livet i Tyskland gjort, at jeg ikke har kunnet bruge min uddannelse. Så jeg dyrker min kreative side i stedet.
     
    Til min første blogpost har jeg lavet et kort, hvor jeg har brugt Sizzix Frameworks Die - Courtyard som stencil, så jeg kunne skabe mit mønstrede papir ved at bruge Inka Gold. Jeg udstansede en enkelt Sizzix Frameworks Die - Courtyard og brugte så fingrene til at smøre Inka Gold i hullerne i diecuttets mønster. De nye Framework dies har gentagende mønstre, så det er nemt at lade motivet sprede sig udover hele arket.
     
    Ingredienser:
     
    Karton
    Inka Gold: Silver
    Bånd
    Stempler: Papertrey Ink
    Sværte: Memento Tuxedo Black

  • Minna's First Blog

    Wednesday, 2 April, 2014

    
    Hello! My name is Minna Paajanen. I live in Äänekoski, central of Finland together with my husband and our seven children and two dogs. Since I was a little girl I have done everything with my hands; knitting, sewing, crocheting etc. But in the end of 2008 I found paper crafting by my friend and I started with 3D cards and now I`m on this road. I love vintage and shabby style but also like to make cards and layouts using different techniques although I have still so much to learn.

    Here is my first project for the Sizzix. I wanted to make a birthday card using Sizzix Bigz Dies - Tattered Florals and Tattered Leaves.

    Items used:

    Papers: Pion Design - Shoreline Treasures, watercoloring paper
    Inks: Distress Ink pads Victorian Velvet, Peeled Paint, Crushed Olive and Walnut Stain
    Other: gesso, structure paste, sisal, stencil

    How to do:
    Cut the patterned paper to size you like (mine is 15 cm × 15 cm), apply gesso on to the paper and allow it to dry. Then choose one stencil  and make the pattern by applying structure paste or gesso. Let it dry again.
    While it dries cut the flowers and leaves out of white watercolour paper and ink them using Distress Ink pads and shape them using flowers making tools.
    When the patterned paper is dried add some colour using Distress Ink pads. Now you can place your flower and leaves and add some embellishments like pieces of papers.





    Hei,
    Tässä ensimmäinen projektini  Sizzixin blogiin, kukkakortti, jossa käytin  Sizzix Bigz stansseja Tattered Florals ja Tattered Leaves.
    Tarvikkeet:

    Paperit: Pion Design – Shoreline Treasures, valkoinen vesiväripaperi
    Musteet: Distress Ink tyynyt -  Victorian Velvet, Peeled Paint, Crushed Olive and Walnut Stain
    Muut: gesso, struktuuripasta, sabluuna, sisalia

    Kuinka teet tämän kortin:
    Leikkaa kuvio paperi sopivan kokoiseksi (tama kortti on kokoa 15 cm ×15 cm). Levitä gessoa paperille ja anna kuivua.  Sitten valitse jokin sabluuna ja levitä struktuuripastaa tai gessoa paperin pintaan ja anna kuivua. Tällä välin leikkaa kukat ja lehdet vesiväripaperista käyttämällä Big Shot - laitetta ja värjää kukat ja lehdet ja muotoile ne kukkientekotyövälineillä. Kun kuviopaperi on kuivunut, lisää vähän väriä Distress Ink mustetyynyillä  ja kiinnitä kukka, lehdet ja koristeet esim. paperisuikaleita .
