  • A flowery and shabby mixed media layout by Bente

    Sunday, 29 June, 2014




      Hi there Sizzix friends.

    Today I have a page to share that took me quite some time to make.
    I enjoyed very much the process of adding bits and pieces continously and had I not decided enough is enough, I might be adding to it still......


    I used my trusted Tattered Florals  Bigz die for the pink handmade flowers and also the Frameworks Trellies dies. Lots of mixed media goodness on this page and let me tell you I had sooo much fun creating it.



    I love how all these colours look together.
    The background teal colour was achieved mixing two different mists with gesso.


    I misted my Tattered Florals with  a dark pink colour to add some more pizazz.


    That's all for now.
    I hope yooy enjoyed my page and also thanks for your sweet comments on my previous post.

    Sizzix Bigz Die - Tattered Florals 

    Sizzix Frameworks Die - Trellis

    And I used the June kit from Scraps of Elegance  containing papers from 7 Dots Studio. I also used mists and flowers from Prima Marketing, washi tape from Glitz, liquid pearls from Rangers, mini roses and stickers from Papirdesign.





    Hej alla vänner av Sizzix!

    Idag har jag en sida att visa som tog rätt lång tid att göra. Jag njöt mycket av processen att lägga till fler och fler detaljer, och hade jag inte sagt 'stopp' så hade jag väl fortsatt att lägga till saker ännu!...

    Jag använde min pålitlige vän Tattered Florals Bigz dien till de rosa handgjorda blommorna och dessutom 'Frameworks -Trellies'. Mycket mixed media kul på denna sidan och den var otroligt kul tt jobba med!

    Jag gillar skarpt hur dessa färgerna ser ut tillsammans. För den grön-turkosa färgen använde jag två olika färger på mist som jag sedan blandade med gesso.


    Med mist gjorde jag också ett splattermönster på de rosa blommorna för att ge dom lite mer karaktär.

    Det var allt för denna gången!
    Hoppas ni gillar vad jag gjort här, och dessutom ett stort tack till er för alla fina kommentarer ni lämnade på min förra bloggpost!!

  • A needlework project bag

    Saturday, 28 June, 2014



    Hi , how are you finishing June ? I have been full of work  but happy to start July and have a good rest in my summer holidays.
    Well, today I have done a new project for Sizzix, it ´s a little bag for my wips that I want to take to my trip.
    I´m sure most of you have scraps of fabric from last projects and keep them for something. This is a perfect way to use the squares die and give a new opportunity to those scraps.



    Here it´s  the front.......





                                                                     .........  and back ..........







    But first , we go with the supplies :






    Scraps for  the squares  ( 20 )
    Cotton fabric like rustic in brown- natural color :
    Front of the bag
    10" x 4.5"(  1 for the pocket back )
    10"x 1.5 " ( 1 for the bias upper pocket )
    10" x 2.5" (1 for the upper piece  )
    10"x 8" (1 for the botton piece with pocket )
    Back of the bag
    10"x 4.1/4" (1 for the upper piece)
    10"x 2. 1/4" ( 1 for the botton piece )

    10" x 10.5"  Batting ( 2 Pieces )
    10"x4.5" batting ( 1 piece for the pocket )

    10 " x 10.5"  fabric for lining ( 2 pieces )
    11.5 lace zipper 
    32" bias ribbon with lace 
    DMC brown thread 
    Wooden label ( if you like )



    This time I have taken a bunch of pics so you can find the step by step easily. 





    Sew  four strips of  five squares , and sew together two  and another two of them.
    Now you have got 2 blocks.
    Take one of them and do a sandwich with batting and backing fabric.
    Quilt by hand with embroidery  brown thread.






    Add a bias ribbon like the pic and finish by hand with hidden stitches. This is the upper pocket.
    Sew the brown fabrics  with other bias ribbon.
                                                 Lay the quilting piece ( pocket ) on that brown fabric and put another piece of bias ribbon and sew with your  machine. Finish again by hand.
    Do some decorative stitches with embroidered  brown thread.
    Add a new batting piece to this front of the bag
    Now you have the front finished.








     Now ,sew the other piece of  quilted piece with rectangles brown fabrics . Do a sandwich like before, quilt and sew decorative stitches. Now you have the back of the bag ( upper pic )




    It´s  time to sew the lace zipper. You must to sew the the two pieces of lining to  back and front of the bag, laying the right side together.
    Sew the zipper following these steps , sew around  letting something  open   and do the corners, bag and lining and trim the excess.

    Take out  and sew the opening of the lining .






    And , finally  add something more decorative  label if you want . Mine is made of wood.
    I hope you enjoy this tutorial and maybe you can take your wips like me in your summer holidays. 

    Hope you have a wonderful weekend

    Love
    Mercedes

    Hola ! ¿ Qué tal estais terminando junio ? Yo he estado a tope de trabajo pero feliz de poder empezar Julio y disfrutar de mis vacaciones de verano tan merecidas.
    Hoy os traigo un nuevo proyecto para Sizzix , una pequeña bolsa para guardar  los trabajos en marcha de labores y que quiero llevar de vacaciones.
    Estoy segura que muchas de vosotras tenéis restos de telas que os han sobrado de otras tareas y que guardais para futuras ideas. Pues esto es perfecto para  usarlos con el troquel de cuadrados y dar una nueva oportunidad a esas telitas.

    Echad un vistazo a la parte delantera ( primera foto) y la trasera ( foto siguiente ) .
    Materiales :




    Restos de telas para los cuadrados ( 20 )
    Tela de algodón rústica en color marrón natural :

    Para la parte delantera

    25cm x 11cm ( 1 para la trasrea del bolsillo )
    25cm x 4 cm ( 1 para hacer el biés de la parte superior del bolsillo )
    25 cm x 6 cm ( 1  para la parte superior)
    25cm x 20 cm ( 1 para la parte inferior con el bolsillo )

    Para la parte trasera


    25cm x 11cm (1 para la parte superior )
    25cm x 5.5 cm ( 1 para la parte inferior )

    25cm x 26.5 cm de guata ( 2 piezas )
    25cm x 11.5 cm de guata ( para el bolsillo )
    25cm x 26.5 cm de tela para  el forro  ( 2 piezas )
    Cremallera de puntilla  de 29cm
    81cm de bies  con adorno  para los ribetes
    Hilo DMC en marrón oscuro
    Etiqueta de madera si quieres.




    Esta vez he tomado bastantes fotos para que te resulte sencillo seguir el tutorial , asi que de nuevo echa un vistazo.

    Una vez cortados los cuadrados ( 20) hice cuatro tiras con 5 de ellos y las cosí dos y dos. Luego hice un sandwich con la trasera del bolsillo , la guata y una pieza de los 5x 2 cuadrados. Acolché a mano con una hebra de hilo de bordar.
    Añadí un biés con puntilla  a la parte superior y cosí con  un poco de la tela rústica  para rematarlo por el revés a mano con puntada escondida.
    Cosí  las dos telas ( la de 6 cm y  20cm por 25cm )  con otro trozo de biés  con puntilla .Coloqué el bolsillo acabado encima  y puse otra vez bies con puntilla en la parte inferior del bolsillo. Cosí  a máquina y rematé a mano.
    Mira las cuatro fotos juntas y te darán la pista.
    Tomé la otra parte de los cuadrados y cosí a máquina los dos trozos de tela rústica ,parte superior e inferior. Coloqué la guata y acolché.
    Hice un bordado decorativo en la parte delantera y trasera de la bolsa.

    Para coser la cremallera mira el proceso en el grupo de fotos.
    Coloqué cada  parte del forro sobre  cada  parte de la bolsa , derecho con derecho y cosí solo el lado superior donde iría la cremallera. Dí la vuelta y planché dejando revés con revés cada una.
    Coloqué un lado de la cremallera   sobre la parte delantera  cosí y luego  hice lo mismo con la trasera  de la bolsa.
    Volví  un lado del derecho de la bolsa con el otro  , de modo que se quedó la guata a la vista. Junté el forro en el otro lado , también revés con revés.
    Cosí todo alrededor dejando una pequela abertura para dar la vuelta luego.
    Maté las esquinas  a 2.5 cm del pico y cosí. Corté el exceso del pico , di la vuelta , saqué el forro y cerré por el derecho con la máquina haciendo una puntada lo más cercana al borde.

    Por ultimo añadí la etiqueta de madera.
    Espero que disfrutes este tutorial  y quizá te sirva como a mí para llevar tus trabajos en curso para tus vacaciones estivales.








    Puedes volver a él las veces que quieras para  aclarar dudas del montaje y hacer tu propia versión. 
    Me encantaría ver vuestros resultados .Sólo tienes que comunicarlo en mi blog 

    Que tengas un maravilloso fin de semana
    Cariños

  • Pop 'n Cuts Butterfly & Hearts Card

    Friday, 27 June, 2014

    Hello! It's Anna here to share some ideas using Sizzix products.
    Today I have a card to show you. I have used some Sizzix Dies on this project.
    I love my Sizzix Thinlits Die Set 3PK – Love of “Life Made Simple” collection. Put this die together with the Pop’N Cuts Card Base Big Shot Die and you end up with a unique card.
    I gave this card to my friend for her birthday.
    Here is the finished card:
     
    cafe creativo - big shot sizzix - card pop up - Pop 'n Cuts (1)
     
    To make the front card I die-cut hearts background out of light pink cardstock and I play with the small hearts.
     
    cafe creativo - big shot sizzix - card pop up - Pop 'n Cuts (2)
     
    Let's look at the card's inside:
     
    cafe creativo - big shot sizzix - card pop up - Pop 'n Cuts (3)
     
    To make the inside I die-cut two butterflies (from Bigz die of Starter Kit), a rose 3D and a label. Use embossing folders to create a textured background on the butterflies.

    Per le amiche italiane! :)

    Ciao, sono Anna e sono qui per condividere alcune idee utilizzando i prodotti Sizzix.
    Devo dire che mi piace molto la collezione di fustelle “Life Made Simple”. Se metti insieme lo sfondo a cuoricini con con una fustella Pop'n Cuts, si arriva sicuramente a produrre qualcosa di unico.
    E siccome dovevo fare una card per il quarantesimo compleanno di un'amica, ho cercato un'idea speciale per fare gli auguri... e spero di esserci riuscita ;)
    Per fare il fronte del biglietto ho fustellato lo sfondo a cuori dal cartoncino rosa chiaro ed ho poi giocato un po' con i cuoricini di diversi colori, che ho messo qua e là. Lo sfondo l'ho incollato sulla base card fucsia, completando il tutto con un fiorellino.
    L'interno della card Pop'n Cuts l'ho decorato con due farfalle (usando la Bigz dello Starter Kit), una rosellina 3D e un'etichetta tagliata su carta da lucido. Le farfalle le ho anche embossate con mascherine differenti, per dare più rilievo, visto che la carta fantasia che ho scelto è molto decorata e scura. Strass e perle hanno dato il tocco finale, per illuminare anche un po'.

    Spero che la card vi sia piaciuta.
    Alla prossima!

  • Adopted blocks part 1

    Thursday, 26 June, 2014
    

    Well hello again - I hope you've been able to enjoy some beautiful sunshine - although today the sun is hiding behind the clouds at the moment - I still have hope of seeing it later!
    I am pleased to say that I have completed 'Katy's' quilt and really like it - so here are the instructions for some of the blocks - I will give fabric quantities for each block.
    The following Bigz dies are used throughout this quilt, with the Big Shot machine -
    I am trying to keep the instructions simple - so use the photo of each block as a guide throughout.
    We will start with
     Block 1 Crockett Cabin -

    For this block you need to use the square and half square triangle dies.
    You need white fabric - 8" x 12" - use die 657606 to cut 4 squares and die 657610 to cut 4 half square triangles.
    Blue print and pink print - 8" square of each - cut 4 squares from each fabric with 657606
    Green print - 4" x 8" - use die 4" x 8" 657610 to cut 4 triangles.
    Join the green triangles to white triangles to create 4 squares,.
    Join 2 pink and 2 white squares together to make a 4 square block, repeat once.
    Join 2 blue squares and 2 green/white squares together to make a block, repeat once.
    Using the photo as a guide join the 4 squares together to complete the block.

    Block 2 - Patchwork Pinwheel
    White fabric - 8" x 16" - cut 8  half square triangles and 4 squares
    Pink fabric and peach fabric - 4" x 8"of each - cut 4 half square triangles of each
    Blue print 8" square - cut 4 squares
    Join peach and pink triangles to white triangles to make squares.
    Join the pink/white squares to a white square and the peach/white squares to a blue square - using the photo as a guide.
    Join these rectangles together to make 4 squares and then join the squares together to make the complete block.

    Block 3 - Chevron

    You need 16"square of white fabric - from which you need to cut 16 half square triangles.
    Pink and blue print fabrics - 16" x 8" of each to cut 8 half square triangles of each.
    Join the white triangles to the pink, and blue triangles to make squares.
    Lay the square out to create the chevron pattern and join together in rows, and then join the rows.
    Block 4 - Railroad crossing
    White print - 16" x 12" and cut 6 half square triangles and 6 squares.
    Aqua print - 12" x 8" cut 6 half square triangles
    Pink spot print - 8" square - cut 4  squares.
    Join the triangles together to make 6 squares.
    Join the pieced squares to 2 white squares to create larger squares.
    Join the pink squares to the remaining white squares and join to make 2 larger squares.
    Join these 4 squares together.

    Block 5 - Susannah
    White fabric - 16" x 8" - cut 4 half square triangles and 4 rectangles.
    Pink, orange floral, orange spot and blue prints - 6" x 3 1/2" of each - cut 1 trapezoid from each fabric.
    Join a triangle to the end of each trapezoid to create a rectangle.
    Join a white rectangle to each pieced rectangle to make a square.
    Join the 4 squares together.

    Block 6 Squares in squares.

    White fabric - 10" x 7" cut 2 squares and 2 rectangles
    Pink and black print - 14" x 7" - cut 2 rectangles and 4 squares
    Pale pink print - 7" x 3 1/2" cut 2 squares,
    Join a pink and white rectangle together on short side, repeat once.
    Join a pink and black square to a pale pink square, add a pink and black and then a white square. Repeat once.
    Join the rows together to complete the block.

    Block 7 Half square triangle study
    White fabric 16" square - cut 16 half square triangles
    8 different prints - 4" square - cut 2 half square triangles from each.
    Join the white and print triangles together.
    Lay the squares out and then join together into 4 rows of 4.
    Join the rows together to complete.
    Wow -we're now 1/3rd of the way through the blocks - so look in again next week for the next set.
    Also for those of you who remember my plan to re-organise my sewing room - a brief update - I sorted and tidied until I could see, and hoover the floor!! I have removed a large trestle table that I think I can manage without. The next stage is to put my quilting frame together - I'm just hoping I can remember how to do it - and then I will be able to cut lots of fabric to make some quick quilts so that I can practise my quilting.
    It's a plan which I hope to achieve and if I do I'll share a couple of photos!
    Meanwhile I'm off the hunt for some sun while I have a cuppa.
    Before I forget - just a reminder that the Festival of Quilts is only 6 weeks away - cheer or scream -depending on how much you have to do before you get there!!!

  • Family layout by Karine

    Thursday, 26 June, 2014

    Hi there!

    Here is a new lay-out more in the C&S style with a nice black & white picture!

    Supply list:

    Papers: Crate Paper, Echo Park
    Cardstock: American Crafts
    Transparency: Studio Calico
    Rub-ons: Jenni Bowlin Studio
    Chipboards: Studio Calico
    Stickers: Studio Calico, Jenni Bowlin Studio
    Dies-cuts: K Box Scrap Plaisir, Pebbles
    Wood Embellishment: K Box Scrap Plaisir

    Others: 3D foam

    Dies:

    659749: Sizzix Thinlits Die Set 4PK-Forever & a Day
    658300Sizzix Big Shot Starter Kit

    I started by gluing my picture in the lower part of my page. I pieced together the same turquoise blue polka dots paper to build my background paper.
    The left part of my page will be partially covered with a torn patterned tracing paper.

    I used a die from the "Life made simple-Forever & A day" set that I’m particularly fond of.
    It is cut out of kraft paper. I only kept the "I will love you forever" part which will serve as title.

    Then I decorated my page as simply as possible: little gold stars, matching rub-ons, mini-stickers and die-cuts.

    This is a lay-out I really like and that is realized really rapidly!





    Have a lovely day,
    See you next Thursday,

    Karine

    Hello !

    Une nouvelle page cette fois-ci plutôt clean & simple pour une jolie photo en noir et blanc !

    Matériel :

    Papiers : Crate Paper, Echo Park
    Cardstock : American Crafts
    Transparent : Studio Calico
    Rub-ons : Jenni Bowlin Studio
    Chipboards : Studio Calico
    Autocollants : Studio Calico, Jenni Bowlin Studio

    Dies :

    659749: Sizzix Thinlits Die Set 4PK-Forever & a Day
    658300 Sizzix Big Shot Starter Kit

    J'ai commencé par coller ma photo dans la partie basse de ma page. J'ai reconstitué le fond avec un seul et même imprimé turquoise à pois.
    La partie de gauche sera partiellement recouverte avec un calque imprimé et déchiré.

    J'ai utilisé une découpe du set "Life made simple-Forever & A day" que j'aime particulièrement. Celle-ci est découpée dans du kraft. Je n'ai pas conservé la carte dans son intégralité et je me suis simplement focalisée sur la partie "I will love you forever" qui fera office de titre.

    J'ai ensuite décoré ma page le plus simplement possible en collant de jolies petites étoiles dorées, des rub-ons assortis, des mini stickers et des dies-cuts.

    Une page que j'aime beaucoup et très rapide à réaliser !

    Bonne journée,

    A jeudi

  • Tidy!

    Wednesday, 25 June, 2014


    Tidy is not a word that would necessarily spring to mind when describing my work area when I'm busy crafting. I'm sure that this is true of many of you? In my defence I do clean up between projects but I'm not too bothered by clutter.

    If like me, you live in Wales then this word takes on a different meaning, Tidy could be transposed for any number of words, all of which are positive like excellent, brilliant, wicked etc.

    My good friend and former band mate  Andrew 'Bone' Jones, an excellent fellow and Tidy guitar player as well was blessed with a little girl last Tuesday by the name of Isabella Eira (a welsh name meaning 'snow') So many congrats to Bone and Julia.

    Bone told me the happy news via text, it read as one might expect but ended with the word tidy! which is  his favourite word by far, not that he has a limited vocabulary, although now you mention it.......

    I wanted to mark the occasion with a card, and the great thing about being a crafter is that you can offer something a little bit special and bespoke. I had a great idea but to make it work I had to reach for my Framelits Circles dies and my Scalloped Squares, The rest, as they say was easy. There are two sets of Framelits circles dies and even though you can create the project using just those in the link above I have lumped them all together in one folder.

    I Started by selecting my papers and dies before die-cutting three different circles, two pale yellow and the smallest from Spotty pink paper. Next I placed a smaller circle against the base of the largest circle and another die roughly in the centre of the smaller yellow circle. I also trimmed away part of the spotty circle until I have the collection of shapes in the far right hand picture.



    I cut the yellow 'ring' in half and fashioned one end into a chevron with my craft knife forming the end of the trunk before mounting them all together to form my elephant. Next I cut a square of ivory card and added a faux stitch effect around the perimeter with a pattern makers wheel. I matted the square onto a die-cut pink scalloped square before mounting the elephant using 3D foam pads.

    Finally, I printed the word tidy onto white card and carefully trimmed around it with a craft knife forming a speech bubble.


    I printed the words onto a rectangle of kraft card as well as the seal at the top (this is from a dingbats font called 'old seals' free to download from dafont.com).


    TIDY!!!












  • Los geht's Deutschland

    Wednesday, 25 June, 2014

     
     
     
     
    Germany is (along with much of the rest of the world) in the grips of the football mania of the World Cup and since the Danish team didn't make it to Brasil and I live in Germany, I still have a team to root for. I'll be watching the game between Germany and the United States with some friends in Denmark and I wanted to bring some German flair to the event.
     

    When I saw these Niederegger marcipans in the German colours, I decided to buy some and make a little gift set in the German colour: Schwarz (black), rot (red), gold (golden/yellow).


    I figured out that two of the marcipans would fit in a small square box that I formed out of a die cut scallopped square using Sizzix Framelits Die Set 6PK - Squares, Scallop: Simply die cut the largest square, then count three scallops from each side and score lines here. Once you have the score lines you also have a guide for cutting: One side of each corner need to be cut lose (use the picture above for reference). Last step is to assemble the box by folding in the corners and glueing them down.


     
    I made my boxes in black cardstock and then I added slivers of red and yellow cardstock to mimic the German flag. A 12" strip is plenty to reach around the box.
     
     
    I knew I wanted to wrap the boxes in cellofan paper and then add some tags with text to the packages, so I die cut three tags. Once more, I used the Germany trio of colours for the frames of the tags. I looked up what German fans might yell at a game and I added that call to the three tags.
     
     
    I added two marcipans to each little box and I colour coordinated them so there would be a black, a red and a golden box.
    
     


    The last step was wrapping the boxes in cellofan paper and adding the tags to each box with matching baker's twine. Los geht's Deutschland (Let's go Germany)!

    Supply list:
    Sizzix Big Shot Starter Kit (Powder Blue & Teal)
    Sizzix Accessory - Magnetic Platform for Wafer-Thin Dies
    Sizzix Framelits Die Set 12PK - Tags, Sentiments
    Sizzix Framelits Die Set 6PK - Squares, Scallop
    Marcipan pieces
    Cardstock
    Baker's twine
    Stikers (LilyBee)
     
    ---o---
     
    Tyskland er (sammen med meget af resten af verden) grebet af fodboldmania på grund af VM i Brasilien, og nu da landsholdet ikke er i Brasilien og vi bor i Tyskland, har jeg fortsat et hold at holde med. Jeg skal se kampen mellem Tyskland og USA sammen med venner, og jeg ville have lidt tysk flair med til festlighederne.
     
    Da jeg så Niederegger marcipanstykkerne i de tyske farver, slog jeg til og besluttede at lave et lille gavesæt i de tyske farver: Schwarz (sort), rot (rød), gold (gylden/gul).
     
    Jeg opdagede, at to af marcipanstykkerne kunne passe i en lille box, som jeg lavede ud af udstansede scallopped firkanter lavet med Sizzix Framelits Die Set 6PK - Squares, Scallop: Jeg udstansede den største af firkanterne og lavede foldelinjer tre buer inde på alle sider af firkanterne. Foldelinjerne er samtidig guides til der, hvor man skal skære for at kunne samle boxen (brug billedet ovenfor som reference). Det sidste skridt er at samle boxene ved at folde hjørnerne ind og lime dem sammen.
     
    Jeg lavede mine boxe i sort karton, hvorefter jeg tilføjede strimler af rødt og gult karton, så boxene kom til at ligne det tyske flag. Strimler på 12 inches / 30,5 cm er rigeligt lange til at nå hele vejen rundt.
     
    Da jeg vidste, at jeg ville pakke boxene ind i cellofan og så tilføje nogle tags, udstansede jeg tre tags og endnu en gang brugte jeg den tyske trio af farver. Derudover fandt jeg et fodboldslogan, som jeg kunne sætte på tagene.
     
    Hver box indeholder to marcipanstykker, og de er farvesorteret, så der er en sort, en rød og en gylden box.
     
    Det sidste skridt var at pakke boxene ind i cellofan og sætte taggene fast med matchende baker's twine. Los geht's Deutschland (Go Tyskland)!
