  • Clean and simple flower card with the Starter Kit

    Monday, 16 June, 2014

    Hi everybody!

    Today I was looking to my scraps folder and I decide to make a quick card to use some of them. I wanted a basic clean and simple card, that could be used in any occasion, so I grabbed my Big Shot machine and the Starter kit.




    As you can see I have used very few supplies, only some card and paper :) To create the flower leaves I have used the little heart framelit included in the kit. It complements very perfectly the flower :)

    Happy Monday!

    .......................

    ¡Hola a todos!

    Hoy estaba mirando mi carpeta de restos y he decidido hacer una tarjeta rápida para gastar algunos. Quería una tarjeta neutra, que pueda utilizar en cualquier ocasión, así que he cogido mi Big Shot y el starter Kit, que vienen genial para esto.

    Los materiales utilizado ya veis que son muy poquitos, apenas un poco de cartulina y papel decorado y unas perlitas. Para hacer las hojas de la flor he utilizado el troquel pequeño de corazón del kit que complementa la flor a la perfección :)

    ¡Feliz lunes!

  • Bentes Flowery Sunday post

    Sunday, 15 June, 2014



    Hello and happy Sunday to you!!

    Here in the south of Sweden we're enjoying a beautiful weekend and I hope the same for you wherever you are!!

    My daughter has been doing a major cleaning and sorting of her room and we found loads of loose pecils laying around. I decided to decorate a wooden pencilbox that I've had for along for her to keep them in.

    This is how it turned out:

     I used a frameworks die for the lattice work on my box. 
    As you may see my piece of lattice is double the length and yet there is no joint to be seen.
    That is because I cut out my lattice on a double piece of paper. I just make sure the die does not cut the very end of the pattern and that gives me a nice long piece. Look closely where it says 'here'.

     And this is the finished long piece. The middle is where it says 'here'.

    And some more close ups:



     Sizzix products I used:

    ------------------------------------------------ooOOOOOOOOOo-----------------------------------------------


    He och trevlig söndag till er!


    Här i södra Sverige njuter vi av en vacker weekend och jag hoppas ni gör det samma var ni än är!
    Min dotter har haft storstädning på sitt rum och vi hittade en hel hög pennor, som jag bestämde mig för att ge ett hem. Jag har haft ett odekorerat pennskrin i trä liggande och nu var det lämpligt att plocka fram det.

    Så här blev det:

    Jag använde en frameworks die för 'lattice' mönstret. Som du ser så har mönstret blivit längre än själva die'en och där är ingen skarv. Detta beror på att jag placerade ett dubbelvikt papper på min die så att den inte skar riktigt ända ut på motivet. Man sparar ett par millimeter som gör att motivet hänger ihop. Titta på bilderna där det står 'here'.


  • A Thank You card with roses

    Saturday, 14 June, 2014



    Hello all!

    Here is my new card. I like to play with materials and colours to find new interesting decisions and variants. As usually I used water-color to create the background. And Sizzix dies helped to create the decoration. 

    There are only 2 sizes of roses in the set but you can create any size when you roll it.


    Simple white roses always look very soft.




    Here are the materials I used:

      
    Have a nice day!

    Olga 

    Всем привет!

    Это моя новая открыточка. Я люблю экспериментировать с материалами и цветами и находить новые решения и сочетания. Как обычно, для создания фона я использовала акварель. А с помощью ножей я создала такую вот чудесную композицию. Я часто использую простые белые розы - они всегда смотрятся очень нежно.
    В этом наборе ножей "Розы" только 2 размера, но при скручивании можно сделать фактически любой размер - чем туже скручивать, тем меньше получится бутон.

    Всем хорошего дня!

  • Doing yo- yos

    Saturday, 14 June, 2014


    Hi everyone, here I go with a new project using Sizzix dies.I´m in the way for a new quilt that will have cute yo-yos. So I thought it would be quick to cut all those circles with the circles die.
    You can find three sizes of them in the same die, great!
    First I did some models and saw what size was perfert for my idea.
    I´m using the Clover yo - yos makers .






    Supplies

    Bigz L Die- Circles 2",3" & 4"

    Scrap of fabrics
    Clover yo -yos maker




     
     
     
    Finally I decided bigger it was the best size , so I cut in just 1 second eight circles that are perfet to fit in the 45mm maker.
     
     



     
     
     
     
     
    I spent some time doing my big  yo- yos but I need a bunch yet.
    This is a good work to take away and do everywhere , just now weather is warm and sunny here and you can enjoy your free time outdoor.
     
     


    Well, think all the possibilities having a lot of circes cut in just some few minutes!
    This is one idea and I hope to find more with this die.
     
    Hope you have a wonderful weekend
     
    Love
    Mercedes
     
     
    ...........................................*************............................................

    Hola a todo el mundo , ya estoy aquí con un proyecto nuevo usando los troqueles de Sizzix .
    He empezado un nuevo quilt que tendrá yo- yos así que pensé que sería estupendo y rápido cortar todos los círculos que necesitaba con uno de los troqueles que tiene hasta 3 tamaños de círculos.
    Primero hice algunos modelos and vi cuál era el tamaño mejor para lo que quería , para ello estoy utilizando   los Quick  Makers de Clover que se adaptan perfectamente al tamaño de cada uno de los círculos del troquel , ya que necesita que dicho círculo  que cortamos de tela sea un poquito más grande  que el aparatito de Clover.



    Materiales:

    Bigz L Die Circles  2", 3 "& 4"
    trozos de telas
    Quick yo- yo Makers




    Al final me decidí por el más grande que viene perfecto para  el troquel grande. Coloqué las telas sólo sobre el troquel de círculo grande y corté ocho de una vez ahorrándome la pesada tarea de hacerlo a mano.

    He preparado unos cuantos pero aún necesito un montón.

    La verdad es que es un trabajo estupendo para llevarte fuera y disfrutar del buen tiempo, cálido y soleado que estamos teniendo por aquí y a punto de entrar en el verano.



    Que tengas un maravilloso fin de semana
    Cariños

  • Gift boxes with butterflies

    Friday, 13 June, 2014

    
    Hello everyone! It's Karola here with some new inspirations. This time I don't have a card or layout for you, but just an simple idea for small gift wrapping. In Poland and probably most of Eauropean countries, the school year ends very soon. It's opportunity to express gratitude to the teachers for their dedicated time, knowledge, care and support. For this occasion I decided to make pillow boxes as a small gifts wrapping. Creating pillow boxes with Sizzix Movers & Shapers L Die - Pillow Box w/Labels is amazingly easy, just as 1 - 2 -3 and after 5 minutes you have a great base for a beautiful gift packaging. 


    I decorated my boxes using die cuts I've made using Sizzix Frameworks Die - Trellis and white cardstock. Butterfly is a very versatile motif to decorating anything you need - it's perfect for any occasion, so I cut out a few butterflies in 2 color options, using butterfly die from Sizzix Big Shot Starter Kit (Powder Blue & Teal) and decided to create layered embellishment with them. As you can see, I wanted to decorate my butterflies a little bit more and I used hand circle punch to made a few tiny holes in each paper butterfly. This way makes paper die cuts airy and delicate. 






    Sizzix supplies used:
    658268 Sizzix Movers & Shapers L Die - Pillow Box w/Labels
    658300 Sizzix Big Shot Starter Kit (Powder Blue & Teal)
    659431 Sizzix Frameworks Die - Trellis


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

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

    Witajcie! Tu znów ja - Karola z odrobiną nowych inspiracji. Tym razem nie mam dla Was kartki czy layoutu, lecz przynoszę ze sobą prosty pomysł na opakowanie niewielkiego prezentu. W Polsce, jak i prawdopodobnie w wielu europejskich krajach - wkrótce kończy się rok szkolny. To doskonała okazja do wyrażenia wdzięczności nauczycielom za poświęcony czas, wiedzę, opiekę oraz za wsparcie. Z tej okazji postanowiłam zrobic kilka poduszkowych pudełeczek jako opakowania na maleńkie prezenty, jako wyraz wdzięczności. Tworzenie poduszkowych pudełeczek z wykrojnikiem Sizzix Movers & Shapers L Die - Pillow Box w/Labels jest niesamowicie proste i szybkie, po prostu 1 - 2 -3 i już po pięciu minutach mamy świetna bazę pięknego opakowania prezentu. 
    Moje pudełeczka ozdobiłam wycinankami z wykrojnika 659431 Sizzix Frameworks Die - Trellis. Motyle to bardzo uniwersalne motywy, którymi możemy dekorować właściwie wszystko, są doskonałe na każdą okazję. Wycięłam zatem kilka motyli w dwóch opcjach kolorystycznych, wykorzystując wykrojnik z motylem z zestawu startowego maszyny Sizzix Big Shot Starter Kit (Powder Blue & Teal) i postanowiłam stworzyć z nich warstwową dekorację. Jak widzicie, chcąc dodatkowo ozdobić moje motyle, wykorzystalam dziurkacz - kombinerki, którym zrobiłam trochę maleńkich dziurek w każdym z papierowych motylków. Ten sposób sprawia, że papierowe dodatki, jakie pozyskujemy za pomocą wykrojników stają się lekkie i delikatne. 

    Wykorzystane produkty Sizzix:


    Dziękuję za dzisiejsze odwiedziny na naszym blogu i życzę Wam 
    wspaniałego, kreatywnego weekendu!

    I had already shared another notes HERE using this wonderful and playful collection by Tim Holtz.

    Anna Draicchio - sizzix big shot - notes bookmark (2)
     
    I made a background with stripes of patterned paper, adding a chevron stripe that I cut out with my Big Shot machine.

    Ciao, Anna è qui per condividere alcune idee con la fustella Frameworks Die – Chevron.
    Ho un paio di progettini da farvi vedere oggi: un piccolo notes ed un segnalibro. Due simpatiche idee regalo, anche come set da allegare ad un libro.
    Avevo già condiviso un notes simile QUI, dove avevo utilizzato sempre una fustella di questa fantastica collezione di Tim Holtz.

    Ho creato il blocchetto notes utilizzando le tag: è facile, perchè basta tagliare solo le singole pagine e far scivolare tutto attraverso un anello richiudibile, per tenere le pagine insieme. Naturalmente ho decorato la copertina con carte fantasia e le fustelle Sizzix, compreso l'alfabeto.
    In sostanza ho realizzato uno sfondo con strisce di carta patterned, aggiungendo anche una striscia “chevron” che ho tagliato con la mia BigShot. Ho giocato un po' con le varie “frecce” cambiando colori e fantasie, per dare un po' di movimento.

    Ho creato il segnalibro utilizzando lo stesso procedimento della copertina del notes. Ho tagliato poi una striscia per fare il segnalibro, ho cucito i bordi, aggiunto un occhiello e un filo di lana pom pom che fa più allegria.

    Spero vi sia piaciuta anche questa variante a zig zag!
    Se avete dubbi non esitate a scrivere qui nei commenti
    Grazie per la visita.

  • Barbecue Apron

    Thursday, 12 June, 2014
    


    In honour of Father's Day I have made an apron that he might  wear when cooking up a storm on the barbecue! I'm not sure but here goes - it's a nice apron anyway.

    The apron measures 27" across and 35" long, and the ties are 2" x 40" finished and the neck band is 2"x 24" finished. The pocket is 27" x 17" unfinished. You will need approx. 1 1/2 - 2 yards of fabric depending on the width.
    The ties, and neck band are made by pressing a 1/4" seam allowance onto the wrong side of the fabric along both sides of the length of the tie. Then fold the tie in half, wrong sides together along the length and press, folding one end into a point on each tie. Stitch along both folds.
    Fold the pocket in half along the length, with right sides together, and stitch a 1/4" seam. turn the pocket right side out and press so that the seam is along the bottom edge of the pocket.

    For the Dresden Plate I chose 2 co-ordinating fabrics 18" x 8", and I ironed a fusible web onto the wrong side of the fabric.
    Using the Big Shot http://www.sizzix.co.uk/product/657900/sizzix-big-shot-machine-only-powder-blue-teal, and the large Dresden Plate Bigz Die http://www.sizzix.co.uk/product/659847/sizzix-bigz-l-die-dresden-plate-large - I cut 6 plates from each fabric.
    I fused them in place on the pocket to create 2 semi-circles and then zig-zag stitches around the edges.
    to complete the apron - press a narrow double hem around all the edges of the apron. Fold and pin the neck band and ties into the apron hem and stitch in place. Then stitch all around the apron hems.
    Fold the sides of the pocket to the wrong side and pin in place to the apron. Stitch the pocket in place and then stitch a seam down the middle to make 2 pockets.
    I'm not sure whether he'll wear it - but it is a nice apron! and it could be made in pretty fabrics for Mum at another time!
    Keep sewing.

  • Go Green ! By Karine

    Thursday, 12 June, 2014

    Hello!

    Here is a new lay-out with a Spring atmosphere starring Clementine, a lovely little girl who will be the main theme of my creations this month! I take the opportunity to thank her mom for giving me all these nice inspiring pictures!

    Supply list:

    Papers: Crate Paper, Pink Paislee
    Tracing paper: Studio Calico, Crate Paper
    Alphabets: Jillibean Soup
    Labels: 4heures37, Ephéméria
    Wood embellishments: Studio Calico
    Stickers: Basic Grey, Bazzill
    Chipboards: Studio Calico
    Masking Tape

    Dies:

    659758 : Sizzix Thinlits Die Set 3PK-Overall Patterns
    659436 : Sizzix Bigz Die-Garden Greens
    658300  Sizzix Big Shot Starter Kit

    Start by gluing your picture. Build your page in a horizontal lay-out with pattern paper scraps.

    Brim over the frame by placing stickers, masking tape strips and printed tracing paper.

    In a chevrons-patterned tracing paper, cut two pretty leaves with the help of your Big Shot machine. Fix them with liquid glue or a glue stick. Put some weight on if necessary.

    Let’s start with decoration now! Add stickers and chipboards for more volume.
    I also used a die from the Life Made Simple Overall Patterns set that I particularly like.
    It is a pretty card with hexagons patterns. I use the small patterns as embellishments! My page is scattered with little kraft die cuts that are glued with liquid glue.





    See you next Thursday for a new page!

    Karine

    Bonjour !

    Une nouvelle page aujourd'hui aux allures printanières avec la jolie petite Clémentine que vous retrouvez tout au long de mes posts en ce mois de Juin ! Je remercie sa maman pour toutes ces jolies photos si inspirantes !

    Matériel :

    Papiers : Crate Paper, Pink Paislee
    Calque : Studio Calico, Crate Paper
    Alphabets : Jillibean Soup
    Etiquettes : 4heures37, Ephéméria
    Embellissements bois : Studio Calico
    Autocollants : Basic Grey, Bazzill
    Chipboards : Studio Calico
    Masking Tape

    Dies :

    659436 : Sizzix Bigz Die-Garden Greens

    Commencez par coller votre photo, puis reconstituer votre page avec des chutes de papiers imprimés en envisageant une mise en page horizontale.

    Débordez un peu du cadre en collant des étiquettes, des petits bouts de Masking Tape et du calque imprimé.

    Découpez ensuite à l'aide de votre Big Shot deux belles feuilles dans un imprimé calque chevrons.
    Collez avec de la colle liquide ou bâton. Mettez sous presse si nécessaire.

    Place maintenant à la décoration ! Ajoutez des autocollants, des chipboards pour ajouter un peu de relief.
    J'ai utilisé également un die que j'affectionne particulièrement du set Life Made Simple Overall Patterns.
    Il s'agit d'une belle carte avec des motifs hexagonaux, j'utilise les petites formes en guise d'embellissements ! Ma page est parsemée de petites découpes kraft qui sont collées avec de la colle liquide.

    A Jeudi prochain pour une nouvelle page !
