  • Bente's Sunday layout using the Tattered florals die.

    Sunday, 27 April, 2014


    Hi, I am happy to be back here on the blog this lovely Sunday to share one of my latest projects. 
    I was lucky to get the beautiful Bigz die 'Tattered florals' by Tim Holtz to play with and as you can see I did just that. I could hardly stop making those  shabby looking beauties :-)


     When you start diecutting the different layers there is no rule for how many layers you add. Depending on the size you cut the flower will look different. It is really versatile. These flowers are the very first I made so you see anyone can make them,....


     I found it's a good idea to add pop dots between some of the layers to get the flowers more 'natural' looking. You can of course easily choose to bend and shape the petals with your hands. I, however, discovered an awesome tool for making flowers that now I would not manage to be without.
     It's the 'Susan's Garden Tool Kit' and it is really awesome. There is a link for it below in the list of products used. If you like to make your own flowers you should definitely try these tools.
    I found out how to use them from some great movies on YouTube with Susan Tierney Cockburn.


    For the diamond shaped bits peeking out here and there I used one of the new framework dies, lattice.
    This time I decided to use the patterned side of the paper so the diecut would be a little less conspicious. HERE you can see it used with a solid colour .

    Hejsan! Vad roligt att vara tillbaka här på bloggen för att visa er min senaste sida!
    Jag hade turen att få diesen 'Tattered Florals' skickat till mig och helt ärligt kunde jag knappt lägga den ifrån mig.

    Det finns inget bestämt antal av blomlager som du behöver. 
    Det är upp till dig och hur du vill ha din blomma. Om du inte vill ha en stor blomma så trycker du bara ut de mindre blomdelarna. Jag gjorde både små och stora blommor till min sida.

    Jag tycker att det är en god ide att lägga limkuddar mellan några av lagren så blomman
    kommer lite mera 'upp'. Den blir lite bulligare och mera naturlig då.
    Det går såklart ganska lätt att böja och forma blommorna med fingrarna. Jag har dock ett hett tips!
    Jag upptäckte några fantastiska verktyg för att göra egna blommor som heter 'Susan's garden tool kit'. Jag vill verkligen tipsa er om dessa. Nu när jag har dom hade jag inte klarat mig utan!
    Det finns en länk till verktygen i produktlistan och om du gillar handgjorda blommor rekommenderar jag att ni kollar dom :-) Själv lärde jag mig använda verktygen genom att titta på en film på YouTube med damen som kommit på detta; Susan Tierney Cockburn.

    För de diamantmönstret som sticker fram här och där i bakgrunden har jag använt en av de nya framework diesen kallat 'Trellies'. Jag använde den mönstrade sidan av pappret nu för att få ett lite mjukare uttryck. HÄR kan du se diesen brukt med ett mörkt papper, något som ger större kontrast.

  • A very big vintage pincushion

    Saturday, 26 April, 2014


    Spring is coming again  to my sewing  room and  I have  given a new opportunity to the Primitive Heart Die as I used in my last post , the fabric cover for my patchwork folder where I have all my Sizzix projects.

    This time I have done a very big pincushion that is colorful and full of vintage air  with this print of Lecien that I love.









    Supply List :

    Flower Sugar fabric by Lecien ( white background with little roses and red with dots):
    Two circles of each one ( 9.5 " diameter ). I used an usual big plate for template. Give 1/2 " seam around
    White fabric for the middle sized hearts
    31" embroidered strip
    55" perle thread
    Two buttons
    stuff
    fusible web





    Take a look and let the pictures talk by themselves.
    I used the same method that I told you here to do the fabric heart using the die, be careful to center the rose in the heart if you are going to use the same fabric. Fusible web is on the back .
    I used the middle size heart this time.
    I tried to centre  the five hearts around the big  rose in the middle of the big circle  and sew around two times doing the applique.












    When you have done the round pincushion , fit with stuff and finish sewing by hand.
    Press
    Now start down with the perle thread in the needle  and go up through inside the pincushion until you go face up. Turn round and go down again. Repeat for four time more and it will be a thread between each heart.
    Finish with a button up and down.
    Now I can enjoy a nice pincushion  matching with my patchwork folder.
    You can want to change the size of your pincushion if you want , using the smaller hearts or the biggest.














    Hope you have a wonderful weekend!!!
    Love
    Mercedes

    De nuevo la primavera llega a mi habitación de costura. Le he vuelto a dar una nueva oportunidad al troquel de corazones que usé en mi ultimo artículo, la funda en tela para mi archivadordonde tengo todos los proyectos de Sizzix. Esta vez he hecho un acerico grande  , alegre y con cierto aire vintage gracias a las telas y a la tira bordada que hay alrededor. 


     Materiales:

     656335   Sizzix Bigz Die - Hearts, Primitive

     Tela Flower Sugar de Lecien ( fondo blanco con rosa pequeña y roja con lunares):
    Dos círculos de cada una ( diámetro de 24 cm) Usé un plato llano grande como plantilla.Añade medio cm de costura.
    Tela de fondo blanca para los corazones
    80 cm de tira bordada
    1.40 cm de hilo perlé grueso
    Guata para relleno
    Dos botones
    Entretela de doble cara para pegar con plancha.  


    Echa un vistazo y deja que la fotos hablen por sí solas.
    Utilicé el mismo método que te conté aquí para cortar los corazones con la troqueladora colocando la entretela por el revés.Ten cuidado y centra  las rosas si usas la misma tela .Intenté centar los cinco corazones alrededor de la rosa grande que había en el círculo de tela roja. Hice el aplicado cosiendo dos veces cada uno. Cuando hayas acabado de coser el acerico  del revés , con la tira bordada por alrededor, dale la vuelta , rellena y remata a mano y plancha. Luego haz la separaciones usando el hilo de perlé . Empieza desde abajo ,  en el centro , atravesando el acerico relleno con la aguja e hilo y sube hacia arriba. Rodea , entre cada uno de los corazones y vuelve a repetir hasta que hayas completado las cinco veces. Remata y cose un botón arriba y abajo. Yo aproveché lo que me quedó del mismo hilo de perlé. Ahora ya tengo un bonito acerico grande que hace juego con mi carpeta.Puedes variar el tamaño si quieres,usando el corazón más pequeño o más grande.

    Que tengas un maravilloso fin de semana
    Cariños

  • Layout with lace background

    Friday, 25 April, 2014

    
    Hello everyone! It's Karola again with a new layout inspiration. 
    For today, I prepared a soft, girly layout, very easy to recreate, mostly because of using fantastic Sizzix dies to make bold and lacey background. I really love everything doily and lacey, as I mentioned before, so i always try to put some doilies in my projects. This time I used Bigz Die - Doily, Classical Lace and Thinlits Die Set 2PK - Damask & Scallop Borders to create an interesting background arrangement in my page. These large and lacey motifs are incredibly beautiful and very versatile. 




    Here are a few easy steps you can follow to recreate similiar background or even a whole page:

    Sizzix supplies used:

    1. Prepare a layout base. I used yellow scrapbooking paper and a white textured cardstock on it. The edges of white cardstock was cut using "around the page" decorative punches. I used also mask with "chicken wire" motif on the top and the bottom of my page.
    2. Cut out 2 pieces of damask border and 2 piece of doily in two different colors of scrapbooking paper. Arrange damask borders in the centre of the page, leaving some space between and adhere the doilies by hiding a part of it under the damask borders, as shown on the photos below.
    3. Cut out oval frame using white cardstock and Framelits Die Set 4PK - Frame, Fancy Oval. Prepare your photo (7 x 8 cm) and adhere it, hiding the left photo edge under the left side of the oval frame, as you can see on the photo. Of course you can use also the oval shape photo. 
    4. Then you can decorate your layout by creating some layers, adding title, embellies and maybe some mediums (I used yellow 3D paint to make a few decorative drops).


    Well, I bet you will agree with me that this easy way makes the layout sweet, girly and super easy to create. Using Sizzix dies, you do not have lots of embellies, because you can always cut the motifs from the patterned paper you need in the color and material you want! 

    Thanks for visit us today! Have a wonderful, creative weekend!

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

    Witajcie! Dziś przynoszę ze sobą na blog Sizzix-a kolejną layout-ową inspirację. Do dzisiejszego posta przygotowałam delikatny, dziewczęcy scrap, bardzo łatwy do odtworzenia, głównie dzięki wykorzystaniu fantastycznych wykrojników Sizzix, dzięki którym zrobiłam bogate, koronkowe tło mojego scrapa.
    Nie jest tajemnicą, że uwielbiam wszelkie wzory ażurowe, serwetki i koronki, zatem zwykle staram się opierać moje projekty na tego typu motywach i dodawać je wszędzie tam, gdzie to możliwe. Tym razem wykorzystałam wykrojniki: Bigz Die - Doily, Classical Lace oraz Thinlits Die Set 2PK - Damask & Scallop Borders aby stworzyć moją aranżację tła. Uważam, że te dwa sporej wielkości motywy są nieprawdopodobnie piękne oraz bardzo uniwersalne.

    Poniżej znajdziecie kilka wskazówek, dzięki którym z łatwością stworzycie podobne tło a może i cały layout:

    Wykorzystane produkty Sizzix:

    1. Najpierw należy przygotować bazę scrapa. Ja użyłam żółtego papieru do scrapbookingu oraz białego brystolu, który nakleiłam na żółte tło. Brzegi białego brystolu wycięłam ozdobnie za pomocą dziurkaczy multifunkcyjnych. Dodatkowo użyłam maski ze wzorem siatki oraz zielonego tuszu do stworzenia wzorów u góry i na dole mojego tła. 
    2. Następnie należy wyciąć 2 razy koronkowy border oraz 2 serwetki, najlepiej z dwóch różnych kolorystycznie papierów do scrapbookingu. Teraz trzeba przykleić wycięte motywy na środku tła, w taki sposób, aby serwetki zachodziły nieco pod koronkowe bordery - najlepiej zerknąć na zdjęcie powyżej aby zobaczyć jak ja zaaranżowałam wykrojnikowe motywy. 
    3. Teraz czas na ramkę do zdjęcia. Wystarczy wyciąć owalną, ozdobną ramę, wykorzystując wykrojnik z zestawu Framelits Die Set 4PK - Frame, Fancy Oval oraz biały brystol (papier wizytówkowy). Następnie trzeba przygotować zdjęcie o wymiarach zbliżonych do 7 x 8 cm. Zdjęcie przyklejamy do scrapa w taki sposób, aby jego lewy brzeg wchodził pod lewą stronę wnętrza ramki. Dość dobrze widać to na zdjęciach powyżej. Oczywiście można użyć zdjęcia w kształcie owala. 
    4. Pozostaje ozdobić layout, tworząc trochę warstw, dodając tytuł, ozdoby i może odrobinę (lub więcej) mediów (ja zrobiłam kilka kropek za pomocą żółtej farby 3D). 
    Cóż, jestem pewna, że zgodzicie się ze mną, że ten prosty sposób pozwala na stworzenie słodkiego, dziewczęcego scrapa z z dużą łatwością. Wykorzystując wykrojniki Sizzix nie musicie korzystać z mnóstwa gotowych dodatków, ponieważ zawsze możecie wyciąć sobie ulubione motywy w kolorze i z materiału jaki chcecie.

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

    Hello! It's Anna here to share some ideas using the fabulous Sizzix Frameworks Die – Honeycomb (659430) by Tim Holtz.

    Anna Draicchio - sizzix big shot - home decor - notes tag (1)

    First up is a little notes that I made for my dear friend...

    Anna Draicchio - sizzix big shot - home decor - notes tag (2)

    It was so simple to just cut out the individual tags and slip a metal ring through them to hold the notes together and decorate the cover with papers and Sizzix dies.

    The next project is an altered wood monogram...

    Per le amiche italiane! :)

    Ciao, Buon 25 Aprile!
    Sono Anna e sono qui per condividere alcune idee utilizzando la grandiosa fustella Sizzix Frameworks Die – Honeycomb (659430) by Tim Holtz. Se vi piacciono gli "alveari" questa fustella farà al caso vostro ;) Ma ce ne sono altre della stessa serie creata da Tim Holtz che vi potranno piacere per i vostri lavori sia con carta che con altri materiali, perchè queste fustelle tagliano di tutto!

    Il primo progetto è un blocchetto di appunti che ho creato per una mia carissima amica. E' stato così semplice da fare: è bastato tagliare dei fogli da stampante con la fustella a forma di tag, così come il cartoncino per la copertina anteriore e posteriore, il tutto unito da un anello apribile. Ho decorato la copertina con strisce di carte fantasia e un “alveare” tagliato con la fustella Sizzix, giocando un po' con gli esagoni. Anche le lettere di cartone di “note” le ho tagliate con la Big Shot.

    L'altro progetto è un monogramma di legno alterato. Mi piace incorporare i lavori di papercraft nell'home decor. Il mio monogramma, decorato in modo simile alla copertina del notes, è perfetto per il mio angolino craft. Anche qui come vedete ho incollato prima le strisce di carta e l'alveare con gli esagoni sul cartoncino, che ho poi tagliato seguendo la sagoma del mio monogramma, facile no?!

    Ecco qui! Ieri mi sentivo super-ispirata ed ho passato praticamente tutta la giornata scrappando, mi piace quando vengo presa da un raptus crativo! Ehehehe :D

    Grazie per essere passati di qui! Auguro a tutti voi buon week-end.

  • Hexagons are centre stage

    Thursday, 24 April, 2014
    




    Hello, I hope you've all enjoyed the Easter break, - we had a lovely weekend with lots of sun and lots of friends - I hosted a breakfast party on Easter Monday - which meant a really early morning as I baked a variety of breads - and if I had finished this table centre in time it would have looked great. As it is I've just finished it this morning, so I may need to have another party to show it off!!!



    As I showed last week all the hexagons were fused in place and then all sides were stitched using a zig-zag stitch. Once layered with backing and wadding I stitched buttons in the middle of each complete hexagon motif, instead of quilting. Finally a double binding was used to finish the raw edges.
    This could be made larger by making more motifs, or using a larger hexagon, which will be available in the middle of May -
    1 1/2" side - http://www.sizzix.co.uk/product/659984/sizzix-bigz-die-hexagons-1-1-2-sides
    1 3/4" side - http://www.sizzix.co.uk/product/659985/sizzix-bigz-die-hexagon-1-3-4-sides
    2" sides - http://www.sizzix.co.uk/product/659986/sizzix-bigz-die-hexagon-2-sides
    or even 2 1/4" sides - http://www.sizzix.co.uk/product/657885/sizzix-bigz-die-hexagon-2-1-4-sides
    or you could turn it into place mats by making it  fewer motifs.
    (Which reminds me that the Quilts UK Quilt show, at the Three Counties Showground, is only 3 weeks away - 15th - 18th May - I'll be there demonstrating the Big Shot and Dies with Cotton Patch and Lynne Goldsworthy will be demonstrating on Lady Sew and Sews stand. Come and say hello.)

    I'm just thinking it might be fun to make a set for the patio table - but that I think will stay just a nice idea, for the moment anyway!
    I used themed colours for the table centre, but you could dip into that scrap bag and make a fantastic scrap centre piece, the fun is in the choosing!!
    As the hexagons are fused into place it does mean that this is stiffer and so doesn't drape well, so it probably wouldn't be a good idea to use this method to make a larger item like a quilt.
    Hope you like this easy way to use hexagons. I have no idea what I'll be making next week - so you'll have to log on to find out. Meanwhile keep sewing.

  • Patchwork Fun

    Wednesday, 23 April, 2014

    Quilting, patchwork and applique and indeed all forms of textile based crafts are experiencing a resurgence all over Europe, not that they ever went away! Sizzix steel rule dies, namely our Bigz and Originals ranges are perfect for cutting any type of textile from wafer thin voile through to leather. 

    I was flicking through our Quilting catalogue when I came across an elephant die which was designed for Appliqué/patchwork applications and I thought it was too nice not to share with my papercrafting buddies. The die in question is Elephant (658638) and is a Bigz L die.

    When we talk about elephants and patchwork in the same breath the first thing that springs to mind are the wonderful 'Elmer' series of children's books written by English author and illustrator David McKee. These books have become classics enthralling generations of children, in fact, I am reading a copy of the first Elmer book to my 3 year old daughter which belonged to my 22 year old son.

    I started by choosing 6 bright fresh patterned papers from the lovely people at Echo Park, the 6" x 6" paper pad is called 'A Perfect Summer' as the sun is shinning as I write this I thought it was appropriate, I hope the weather is great where you are too!! I cut the papers into 3cm squares and fixed them to a rectangle of stiff ivory card measuring 15 x21cm which covers the die perfectly.



    Once I have my patchwork rectangle I placed it face down onto the die and ran it through my Big Shot resulting in a body, four legs and an ear.



    I took each die cut and pierced a row of holes around the edges (you can use a pin or piercing tool) and joined up the dots with a fine brown marker to give the illusion of stitching. You can of course use a sewing machine if you have one to hand. Weathered Wood is one of my favourite Distress ink colours of all time, it's a lovely smoky grey colour and its great for edging your die cuts to add subtle contrast. Finally, I attached a white pearl button for an eye with a black adhesive pearl at the top this looks like the elephant is deep in thought trying to remember what he has forgotten, the knotted string around  his trunk completes the visual pun.




    Here is the finished card, the text was printed using my PC and the assembled elephant was mounted using 3D foam pads. Hope you like it, see you all next Wednesday!
















  • Pastel hexagons

    Wednesday, 23 April, 2014

    


     Hexagons are still on trend and I wanted to use them to create a modern and clean card.


    I wanted to use hexagons in various sizes and the easiet way to chose them is simply to look at the way they allign on the sheet the come on. I chose the smallest and three larger ones skipping one between each of them.

    Next up I chose four pastel colours and decided which order I wanted them to appear in. Using the Magnetic Platform made it easy to cut each hexxie using only small scraps of paper.


    I glue the four hexxies together (only lightly since I knew I wanted to stich them down as well) and attached them to a layer of purple and white cardstock.


    In order to finish the card I stamped a sentiment in the lower right corner of the white cardstock and mounted everything on a black card base.


    Supply list:
    Sizzix Framelits Die Set 10PK - Hexagons
    Sizzix Accessory - Magnetic Platform for Wafer-Thin Dies
    Cardstock
    Thread
    Stamps: Papertrey Ink

    ---o---

    Sekskanter er en trend, der fortsat kører, og jeg ønskede at bruge sekskanter til at lave et moderne, enkelt kort.

    Jeg ville bruge sekskanter i forskellige steder, og den nemmeste måde at vælge størrelser, der passede godt sammen, var ved at lade dem sidde på pappet die'ene kommer på. Jeg valgte den mindste størrelse og derefter tre, som var større; jeg sprang en størrelse over mellem hver.

    Næste skridt var at vælge fire pastelfarver samt beslutte hvilken rækkefølge jeg ville have dem i. Ved hjælp af Magnetic Platform var det nemt at udstanse sekskanterne i små stykker restekarton.

    Jeg klistrede de fire sekskanter sammen (men kun lidt da jeg vidste, at jeg ville sy ned igennem dem) og satte dem på en sandwich af hvidt og lilla karton.

    For at kortet blev helt færdigt, stemplede jeg en tekst i nederste højre hjørne og monterede alt på en sort kortbase.


    Ingredienser:
    Sizzix Framelits Die Set 10PK - Hexagons
    Sizzix Accessory - Magnetic Platform for Wafer-Thin Dies
    Karton
    Sytråd
    Stempler: Papertrey Ink

  • For You

    Wednesday, 23 April, 2014

    Hello to everyone! Here is my new flowercard which I made using some Sizzix dies. I really like recycling and for this I used cardboard from the old box where I cut the flower.


    Items used:
    Sizzix Bigz Die - Tattered Florals 656640 
     
    Supplies:
    Papers: Pion Design - A Day in May, cardboard or corrugated chipboard
    Others: Some paper flowers, alphapets, gesso, sewing machine, Distress Ink - Walnut Stain
     
    How to do:
    Choose four different patterned papers in different size. These will be the layers in your card. Sew all the edges and distress them usind Walnut Stain ink. 
    Diecut the flowers from the cardboard using  Sizzix Bigz Die - Tattered Florals 656640 and framework from the other patterned paper using Sizzix Frameworks Die - Chevron 659428.
    Placement all the cut flowers and a few other flowers like in the image below. Placement also your patterned papers and framework (which I have shortened)
    Finally fasten the flower to the card, add some gesso for the edges and set the sentiment using alphabet stickers.


    Have a wonderful day,
    Minna
