  • 3D Christmas tree tag

    Monday, 21 October, 2013

    Hi everybody! Now that we are almost in November is time to start thinking of Christmas projects. Today I want to show you a 3D Christmas Tag that can be used as a gift tag but also as an ornament.


    Supply list:
    • Adhesive pearls
    • Double sided tape, foam Squares
    I love this 3D Christmas Tree die from Brenda Walton. It is very easy to create something really amazing with it. You just have to die cut 3 little trees, fold them (They already have the scoring line!) and glue them together.

    Here you can see the 3D details. I love the final result!


    Happy Monday!
    ...................
    ¡Hola a todos! Ahora que ya casi estamos en noviembre es hora de ir pensando en los proyectos de Navidad. Hoy os quiero mostrar una etiqueta con un árbol 3D, que nos puede servir para poner en un regalo y también para adornar el árbol de navidad.

    Materiales:
    • Perlas adhesivas
    • Cinta de doble cara, foam adhesivo
    Me encanta este troqueI para hacer árboles 3D de Brenda Walton. Es facilísimo crear algo realmente sorprendente con él. Solo necesitas cortar 3 arbolitos, doblarlos por la mitad (¡Ya vienen con los dobleces marcados!) y pegarlos entre ellos.
    Aquí puedes ver cómo quedan los detalles en 3D. ¡A mí me encanta como quedan!

    ¡Feliz lunes!

  • a quilt for a boy

    Monday, 21 October, 2013


    
    A friend of mine has just had a little baby boy. In my house there seem to be an awful lot of quilt tops lying around ready to be quilted that are perfect for little girls...but not for little boys. So this weekend I set about making a simple zig zag quilt using the tutorial I posted a while ago for a 2-hour quilt top. This 6" finished square die is for the big shot pro, which I know not many of you own. The biggest half square triangle die for the normal big shot machine is the 5" (which when sewn into a quilt makes a 4.5" square). You would need to make your quilt 8 rows of 8 squares to make one the same size (mine is  6 x 6).


    @artgalleryfabrics zig zags


    I used 7 of the prints from this stack below, because I wanted a small, square quilt that would be useful as a playmat and small enough to use in the car or pram. It will finish at 36" square once I've got those blocks sewn together, which is a really nice baby quilt size.

    I'll get this finished today and sew the binding on tonight so I can take it to my friend tomorrow and meet the little baby for the first time. I think it'll be the last baby any of my friends have, most of our children are older and we're all done with the baby stage. That's a little sad, isn't it?


      Added a couple more prints. Think I'm happy now.


  • A "Santa's Coming" Card by Gerry van Gent

    Sunday, 20 October, 2013


    Happy Sunday Sizzix friends!
    For my blog post today I created a seasonal card
    using new Sizzix dies which I simply adore.

    Card size: 10.5 cm x 15 cm

    657900 Sizzix Big Shot Machine
    658622 Sizzix Framelits Die Set w/Stamps Snowflakes #2
    658735 Sizzix Sizzlits Decorative Strip Die Wintery Florals

    I added Perfect Pearls to the snowflakes for more playful look :-)

    The snowflakes were die-cut a few times each size and
    layered on top of one another.
    I die cut the Wintery Florals once using white cardstock.
     I fussy cut two florals with leaves which I used separately to decorate the snowflakes.

    Other Products I used:
    Webster's Pages - "A Christmas Story" collection
    Ranger Perfect Pearls
    white cardstock

    I hope you enjoyed my card today!
    Have a creative Sunday!

  • Venetian Tag

    Saturday, 19 October, 2013


    
    Hi there! Today I have a fabulous tag by Darkroom Door Design Team member Godelieve Tijskens. Godelieve has used the Sizzix Tag & Bookplates die along with a selection of Darkroom Door stamps. Take a look: 


    Godelieve created a pocket to hold another tag. Here's how she did it:
    First she used Tim Holtz Alterations Die - Tag and Bookplates to cut a tag.  Punched holes and made a cut with a craft knife.  Stamped a background with Distress Ink #Pumice Stone and used several stamps from Darkroom Door's Venetian Vol 1 set.


    Black cardstock and Darkroom Door Filmstrips are used to create a bookplate.

    This tag has a metal tag from Tim Holtz, Darkroom Door Filmstrips #Venetian Vol 2.  

    Supplies used:
    Sizzix:
    Tim Holtz Alterations Die: Tag & Bookplates 656938

    Darkroom Door stamps:
    Venetian Vol 1 stamp set
    Checkered Background

    Darkroom Door Paper:
    Venetian Filmstrip Vol 1
    Venetian Filmstrip Vol 2

    Thanks so much for stopping by today! Hope you have a creative weekend!

  • Winter is Coming - Dimensional Greeting Card

    Friday, 18 October, 2013

    Hi, I hope you have a great day!
    Well, it's me again and I'm here today to continue the series of winter-inspired projects. You could see my winter gift bag few weeks ago - and today I'm back with multi-layered, dimensional winter card:) I hope you are ready for a bit of snow and frost!



    As you can see there are many layers - as on most of my projects. I might be slightly obsessed with details and layers, but on the other hand - why fight with my nature? 
    I had good time composing layers of paper, lace pieces, Sizzix cut-ut elements and Prima Mechanicals - and I'm quite happy about this effect!

    As you can see  there is tour of gesso and Rock Candy Stickles by Tim Holtz and Liquid Pearls on it too - it was my plan to get this "frosted" cold look - and I hope I suceed!




    There are 3 Sizzix Sizzlits dies used for this project:
    - Sizzix Sizzlits Decorative Strip Die - Medallions (658339)
    - Sizzix Sizzlits Decorative Strip Die - Winter Florals (658735)
    - Sizzix Sizzlits Die - Vintage Doily (658506)

     The pieces of Winter Florals Decorative Strip Die were used in 3 different places: 2 pieces as "leaves" under the main composition and one of the bigger flowers with some leaves under the paper rosette. I love cutting elements into smaller parts and constructing new shapes, layers - get unique, interesting look!


    I'm happy to see my paper collection - 9th Wave from 7 Dots Studio is versatile enough that it can be used also for winter projects too! I hope you like the final effect too!
    Sending best wishes - see you soon!

  • Reindeer Christmas Card

    Happy Friday everyone! This is Anna.
    I'm so excited to share my new project with you today! It`s already October and it is time to think about Christmas.

    To make the background I used the new Textured Embossing Folder Winter Snowflakes Set by Paula Pascal.
    How to make the background: add some gold acrylic paint on the inside of the embossing folder before to press your white cardstock with the Big Shot. Take the paper and let it dry. Clean the embossing folder at once.

    Flag_of_Italy Per le amiche italiane! :)

    Ciao! Ecco un nuovo appuntamento con Anna.
    Buon Venerdì a tutti!

    Sono felice di condividere il mio nuovo progetto con voi...
    Siamo già a metà Ottobre ed è tempo di pensare al Natale se non vogliamo arrivare impreparate ;)
    Un mese fa sono usciti i nuovi prodotti firmati Brenda Walton e così voglio mostrarvi uno dei miei progetti creati con la sua bella fustella con l'elegante Renna.
    Ecco un biglietto di Natale che può essere d'ispirazione anche per un quadretto da regalare.

    Bando alle ciance, ecco come ho fatto:
    In questa card non ho usata carte fantasia, perchè lo sfondo l'ho creato da me: ho usato i nuovi Textured Embossing Folder Winter Snowflakes Set.
    Come fare lo sfondo: passare un po' di vernice acrilica oro all'interno della mascherina da embossing prima di premere il vostro cartoncino bianco con la Big Shot. Togliete la carta e lasciate asciugare. Pulire subito la mascherina sotto il getto dell'acqua.
    La renna l'ho realizzata tagliando del cartone di recupero con la fustella Bigz Reindeer. Gli accessori per abbellirla li ho tagliati con la stessa fustella usando cartoncini in tinta unita e glitter. Ho rifinito con un po' di ric rac, pom pom e qualche strass.
    Ho incollato la renna sopra una taschina dove inserirò una tag ed ho poi incollato il tutto sullo sfondo embossato dorato.
    Ho aggiunto anche due fiocchi di neve tagliati con i Framelits sempre della linea Winter Moment by Paula Pascal.

    Beh, spero che vi sia piaciuta questa idea da usare non solo per card, ma anche per mini album, layout e home decor.

    Grazie per essere passate di qui. Buon fine settimana!
    baci

  • Happy hexagons

    Thursday, 17 October, 2013
    



    Hello, it's a cold but sunny Autumn day. I am enjoying being at home for a while after a crazy few weeks of travelling. I really enjoyed working at the Knitting and Stitching show at Alexandra Palace - and meeting quite a few of you. I always enjoy demonstrating the Big Shot and Bigz Dies - I love seeing the reaction, when it cuts so cleanly and easily, for people seeing it for the first time.
    I managed to purchase some new fabrics for future projects -

    they are from the Downton Abbey range by Andover fabrics - and I think they are lovely - I expect them to feature in projects in the new year.
    Meanwhile - I have been busy with my pieced hexagons - pictured below - I'm using some fabrics by Tilda. I'm really enjoying the piecing process - which I wouldn't attempt without the hexagon dies,
    I've used die 658316 (3/4") for the papers and 658317 for the fabric. I have some travelling to do in the next couple of weeks so I'm hoping to have some time to stitch some more hexagons together - I can use the time travelling to stitch - so that the time goes quickly and I won't get bored - we'll see how that works out.
    That's all for this week - I hope you've up  got some exciting new projects  lined up for the Autumn.
    Keep stitching.

  • An Introduction from Me!

    Thursday, 17 October, 2013
    




    Hello Everyone,

    My name is Katie Skilton and I am a freelance craft designer in the UK.  I have been papecrating for over 12 years.  Just over 18 months ago I turned my passion into a business and now work full time in the craft industry.

    I am so excited to be working with Sizzix and their wonderful products.  From next week you will see a little more of me when I do my first show for sizzix on Create and Craft.

    Today I just want to share with you some of the projects I made recently for my first Sizzix demonstration at Cadbury Home and Leisure Centre.



    As you can see from my work I have a modern but clean and colourful style and love working on home decor projects.



    All of these products were made using the started kit which I absolutely adore.  It has so many possibilities and can be used for so many projects.





    Thank you for looking for looking and I will be back soon to share with you some of my samples from my first Create and Craft show.

    Katie
