  • A simple pen pot with a leafy die cut border

    Monday, 14 April, 2014


    Last week I shared a little project I did using a lid from a canister. Well, I couldn't just throw away the canister, could I?

    A simple pen pot came to my mind.


    I first covered the canister with a strip of paper, but as the background is pretty I left the top and bottom show. I used magnets from inside and outside to secure the paper in place while the wet glue dried. That allowed me to do other things while it dried.


    I die cut the border using white card and the Leafy Border. Where the ends come together I I trimmed the edges a bit so the joined part is not as obvious. 



     I then die cut thin foam with a Framelit circle. Framelits are not warrantied to die cut foam, but some may do if the foam is really thin and the dies has a simple blade design. This foam is to be placed on the bottom of the pot so that I can place scissors upside down and the blade or the bottom wont get damaged.


     And here you have. A pretty simple but effective pen pot. And free!

    Today I'm sharing another quilt from Nik at the cotton patch. You can get this as a kit which includes all the fabrics to make the full quilt (except wadding)

    This one is made using the tumbler die, and it's a great departure from the super simple squares, but still being perfectly beginner friendly. I'd love to see this pattern made for a baby or toddler using novelty fabrics - like an I-spy quilt. I can imagine it being a lot of fun spending hours searching for all of the different animals and things. When my son was small he had an I-spy quilt and it was one of our favourite ways to spend quiet time, snuggled on the sofa with me searching for all of the different pictures.

    The cotton patch have also put together a great downloadable guide on using the big shot - you can get your copy by clicking here!

    Hello, I hope you are all having a lovely week end so far. 
    I have a new page to share with you and of course I have used some of my new gorgeous Sizzix dies for it!


    Here are a couple of shots I took along the way:

    After I sprayed some different shades of mist on my page I look for the right placement 
    for my diecut pieces.


    Then I decide where my photo should go and start adding different kinds of embellishments.


    And now a few closeups of my finished page:




     I used one of the new and funky Life Made Simple sets to cut the small tab. And the Tim Holtz rosette die is one of my favourites.

  • Miracles happen... or my first LO for Sizzix Blog!!

    Saturday, 12 April, 2014

    Hello my dear scrap friends!

    Today I would like to share with you my very first layout for this wonderful blog! It's a great honour for me to become a part of the amazing Sizzix Design Team!

    The phrase I used in my LO expresses what I was feeling at the moment when I received the Invite from Sizzix. It was a real miracle! And now I know that they definitely happen!))

    To create the background I used water-colour and gouache paints.





     The die "Honeycomb" is now one of my favourite:
    :

    Here are the materials I used to create the layout:


    Sizzix Big Shot Starter Kit (Powder Blue & Teal) 658300


    Have a nice day!

    Фон я сделала с помощью акварельки и гуаши. А ножичек "Соты" теперь несомненно мой фаворит))

  • Spool quilt

    Saturday, 12 April, 2014




    Hi! Here it´s Mercedes again in her second post. Go for it.
    Do you remember the spool I did before ? Ok, here it´s what I have done , a nice coloful  and spring spool quilt with a touch of vintage. 
    As I said before, I sew a short white lace in the middle of the spool and now I have add  another more for the border. Really I love  the effect of this quick quilt that I have done using Sizzix dies.









    Ok , take a look and see materials and directions.


    Suppy List:


    658324



    658322




    657605


    656847  Sizzix Accessory - Cutting Pads, Bigz XL 25", 1 Pair




     scraps of fabric in different pastel colours
    White fabric
    32" fabric and   batting  for backing 
    70 " short white lace for spools
    94"  wide white  lace for the border
    Gütermann White 40  cotton thread for quilting 


    First I sew the spool block, a total of 15 units. I told you  here . Don´t forget to add the lace in the cental block before to sew  to the top and botton of the spool .





    Then, I cut  the rectangles pieces to do the outside border. Just sew them one to other  alternating different fabrics. You need to do  it for the four borders. 














    So , sew the  spool blocks. I did three across together changing the direction of each spool and continued adding four more rounds . Be careful with that directions. Finally you get three blooks across and five down. 
    Now it´s the time to add around  the 2  1 /2 " border  ( 2" finished ) with the lace. Put the lace between the top and the fabric border and sew all together. You can use pins  if you want .






    Sew the previous rectangles that were  sewn together and prepare the sandwitch for the out side border.








    Quilt as  you prefer. I did two different ways, one for the spool and border  and other for the back in white fabric and rectangles. 


    I used the same vichi fabric for the binding.







    It´s great how  quick you can do this kind of quilt using the dies. Before you think you are quilting  it !!




    My quilt is 29" x 40"






    Hope you  like and  it can be an idea to sew these next Easter Holidays, which  I´m  already enjoying here . 

    Hope you have a wonderful weekend!!!
    Love
    Mercedes

    ¡Hola! Aquí de nuevo Mercedes  en su  segundo artículo. Vamos a por ello. ¿Os acordáis  el bloque con forma de bobina que hice la semana pasada? Os comenté que estaba preparando un quilt y ya lo tenéis aquí, un alegre y primaveral  quilt de carretes con un toque vintage.
    Como os dije antes, cosí una puntilla en el medio del carrete , en la parte superior e inferior y ahora he añadido otra más al borde. Me encanta el efecto final de este rápido quilt  gracias a  los troqueles de Sizzix que hacen el trabajo  de corte más sencillo..
     Vamos a ver los materiales y cómo lo he montado.

     Materiales :

    658324



    658322




    657605


    656847  Sizzix Accessory - Cutting Pads, Bigz XL 25", 1 Pair



    Telas  de  distintos estampados en colores pastel
    Tela blanca, para el fondo.
    82cm  tela y guata para la trasera
    1.75 cm de puntilla blanca estrecha para los carretes
    2.40 cm de puntilla blanca ancha para el borde
    Hilo Güterman blanco  de algodón del 40 para acolchar



    Primero cosí los bloques carrete , con un total de 15. Te lo conté aquí. No olvides añadir la puntilla antes de coser la parte de arriba y de abajo del carrete..
    Luego corté rectángulos para el borde exterior. Cóselo unos a otros  alternando los estampados.. Necesitas un total de cuatro  bordes

    Cose los bloques de los carretes unos a otros  en un total de tres por  tira. Luego añade otra más y así hasta un total de 3 bloques por 5. Corta  el borde de tela de cuadritos de 2 1/2 “ de ancha y cose alrededor junto con la puntilla ancha.Colócala entre el top y la tira del borde. Puedes usar alfileres para sujetar.
    Cose a ese borde las tiras de los rectángulos cosidos previamente y prepara el sandwich con la guata para acolchar.
    Acolcha como quieras. Yo usé dos acolchados distintos, uno para los carretes  y el borde de tela vichí , haciendo  curvitas que de vez en cuando se retorcían y otro  en curvitas solo para el fondo en la tela blanca y en el borde exterior de rectángulos.

    Es estupendo ver lo rápido que puedes montar el quilt  y cómo estás acolchando antes de que te des cuenta.

    Mi quilt mide  74 cm x 102 cm

    Espero que te haya gustado y que pueda ser una idea para los próximos días de vacaciones en Semana Santa.
    Que tengas un maravilloso fin de semana
    Cariños
    Mercedes

  • Textured card with a decorative window

    Friday, 11 April, 2014

    
    Hello everyone!

    It's Karola here with next Sizzix inspiration! In my today's post I would like to show you an idea for a lovely and textured background for cards. I love to use all kinds of textured elements in my projects, and using Sizzix dies and embossing folders we can create interesting and unique texture.
    As you can see on my card, I created decorative window, it's the main decorative point on this card. In addition, the background paper, in which I cut out window is embossed. 


    Here's how I created the main accent and unique background for my card:

    Sizzix supplies used:

    1. For my decorative background, I prepared a piece of textured Core'dinations cardstock. After cutting the paper for the background, put a small die with a frame motif from Framelits Die Set 4PK - Frame, Fancy Oval on the centre of the paper and then cut out the window.
    2. Then, I embossed this piece of cardstock using trellis motif from Textured Impressions Embossing Folders 2PK - Rose Vines & Trellis Set.
    3. We can further decorate the background. I decided to highlight the embossed pattern by adding a bit of white gesso on the top.


    I stick my background to the card base and in the centre of the window added 3D embellishment. I also added some decorative elements such as ribbon, twine, "celebrate" word and the flowers, with leaves I cut out using Bigz Die - Garden Greens by Tim Holtz.


    I hope I was able to inspire you to create interesting cards.

    Thank you for visiting our blog! Have a wonderful, creative weekend!

    Witajcie! 
    W dzisiejszym poście chciałabym pokazać Wam pomysł na ciekawe tło do kartki okolicznościowej. Uwielbiam stosować wszelkiego rodzaju elementy z teksturą w moich pracach, a wykorzystując wykrojniki oraz foldery do embossingu Sizzix bez trudu możemy nadać pracom wyjątkowej tekstury i głębi.
    Jak widzicie w mojej kartce stworzyłam dekoracyjne okienko. Dodatkowo tło kartki, czyli papier, w którym wycięłam okienko ma wytłoczony wzór za pomocą folderu do embossingu. Oto jak stworzyłam glówny akcent mojej kartki, czyli jej wyjątkowe tło:

    Wykorzystane produkty Sizzix:

    1. Przygotowałam papier na tło, w tym przypadku jest to brystol Core'dinations. Po docięciu papieru ułożyłam mały wykrojnik z motywem ramki z zestawu Framelits Die Set 4PK - Frame, Fancy Oval na środku papieru, a następnie wycięłam okienko. 
    2. Papier z wyciętym okienkiem wytłoczyłam we wzór dekoracyjnej siatki za pomocą folderu do embossingu z zestawu Textured Impressions Embossing Folders 2PK - Rose Vines & Trellis Set.
    3. Tak przygotowane tło możemy dodatkowo ozdobić. Ja postanowiłam podkreślić wytłoczony wzór, dodając na wierzch nieco białego gesso. 

    Moje tło nakleiłam na bazę kartki a w środku okienka nakleiłam przestrzenną ozdobę. Dodałam też kilka dekoracyjnych elementów takich jak wstążka, dratwa, napis i kwiatek, który ozdobiłam listkami wyciętymi za pomocą wykrojnika Bigz Die - Garden Greens by Tim Holtz.

    Mam nadzieję, że udało mi się Was dziś zainspirować do stworzenia ciekawej kartki. 
    Dziękuję za odwiedziny na naszym blogu i życzę Wam wspaniałego, kreatywnego weekendu!

  • Tooth Fairy, wand and tag

    Hi Everyone! This is Anna.
    Hello world! In these days I was thinking about some ideas for kids... Losing a baby tooth is a major milestone for little kids. This week I made this cute little set for a little girl’s tooth loss. You can change up the colors and make it for a boy too.
    My set includes a Tooth Fairy doll with shoulder bag to keep the tooth, a Fairy Wand and a cute Tag Money Holder.

    Ciao! Ecco un nuovo appuntamento con Anna.
    In questi giorni stavo pensando a qualche idea da realizzare per i bambini...
    Perdere un dente da latte è una passo importante per i più piccoli. Così questa settimana ho creato questo piccolo set per la perdita dei dentini di una bambina. È possibile, cambiando i colori e qualche dettaglio, realizzarlo anche per un maschietto ;)
    Il mio piccolo set comprende una “Fatina dei denti” con la borsetta a tracolla per conservare il dentino, una Bacchetta magica, che la fatina lascerà in dono ed una simpatica Tag per contenere i soldini che lascerà sempre la fatina in cambio del dente, così come da tradizione.
     
    Fatina dei denti
    materiali:
    Sizzix Big Shot Starter Kit (Powder Blue & Teal) (658300)
    Sizzix Bigz Die - Hearts, True Affections (658923)
    Sizzix Bigz Die - Doily, Classical Lace (658922)
    avanzi di stoffa e feltro
    twine
    pennarello nero (per gli occhi)
    lana (per i capelli e le braccia)
    lana pom pom (per le gambe)
    ovatta sintetica
    makeup brush
    colla a caldo
    macchina da cucire & filo
     
    Questa dolce fatina si può appende sulla maniglia della porta o sopra il letto ed ha una borsa a tracolla in feltro per conservare il dentino. Da riporre anche in futuro tra i ricordi della bambina. Per fare la fata utilizzare Doily, Classical Lace per tagliare un centrino dal feltro da usare come camicetta, usare la fustella Bigz dello Starter Kit per tagliare due cerchi per il viso e utilizzare due Cuori per creare le ali (cucite ed imbottite). Il resto del procedimento è tutto molto semplice e facilmente intuibile. Comunque ho usato un cerchio di stoffa a quadretti per il vestitino, lana pom pom per le gambe e altra lana per braccia e capelli. Sulla mini borsetta creata con un piccolo rettangolo di feltro ho incollato un cuoricino tagliato con la fustella Bigz dello Starter Kit.
     
    Tag porta soldini
    materiali:
    Sizzix Big Shot Starter Kit (Powder Blue & Teal) (658300)
    Sizzix Movers & Shapers L Die - Tag & Bookplates (656938)
    Sizzix Thinlits Die Set 2PK - Doily, Jewel Heart (658910)
    Sizzix Bigz Die - Envelope & Tag, Mini (659180)
    Sizzix Texture Fades Embossing Folders 2PK - Chevron & Lattice Set (659448)
    cartoncino: bianco, rosa, rosa pallido
    avanzi di patterned paper e stoffa
    distress ink
    twine
    fiore crochet
    paillettes
    strass
     
    Questa tag si può appendere come decorazione, ma in aggiunta ha una piccola tasca sul retro per mettere i soldi! La tasca l'ho creata con Bigz Die - Envelope & Tag, Mini, niente di più facile ed adatto allo scopo! La taschina prima d'incollarla l'ho pure embossata con la nuovissima mascherina Sizzix Texture Fades Embossing Folders 2PK - Chevron & Lattice Set (659448)!
    Per la farfalla ho usato le fustelle dello Starter Kit, mentre centrino e cuore fanno parte dello stesso set Thinlits Die Set 2PK - Doily, Jewel Heart.
     
    Bacchetta magica fatata
    materiali:
    Sizzix Big Shot Starter Kit (Powder Blue & Teal) (658300)
    Sizzix Bigz Die - Doily, Classical Lace (658922)
    Sizzix Bigz Die - Snowflake Medallions, 3-D (658739)
    Sizzix Framelits Die Set 8PK - Circles, Scallop (657552)
    cartoncino: rosa pallido e glitter rosa
    patterned paper
    stoffa
    spiedini di legno
    colla a caldo
     
    Volete provare a fare questa bacchetta? E' facilissimo! Avvolgere due o tre spiedini di legno con una striscia di tessuto incollandolo alle estremità. Tagliare una coccarda dalla carta fantasia e assemblarla secondo le istruzioni, incollando al centro un cerchio scallop glitterarto. Tagliare due Centrini dal cartoncino rosa ed incollare al manico della bacchetta, uno avanti, uno dietro, facendoli combaciare perfettamente. Applicare infine la coccarda e aggiungere strisce di tessuto o nastri alla base della bacchetta. Voilà!
     
    Spero vi sia piaciuto il progetto di oggi dedicato ai bambini :)
    Grazie per la visita! Alla prossima!

  • Pincushion cube

    Thursday, 10 April, 2014
    

    Hello again.
    I'm back from the very busy Creative Stitches show at the Excel in London. I enjoyed meeting a lot of people in the workshops, which were fun, and I was really please that so many were able to complete the needle case in the time we had.
    Now for a quick and useful project for this week - a small pincushion.

    For this pin cushion you will need 6 pieces of fabric about 3" square and fuse some interfacing to the wrong side.
     
     Stitch 2 squares together using a 1/4" seam, and leaving the top and bottom 1/4" unstitched, as in the photo - 
    Repeat so that 4 squares are joined together -
     
     Then add the top, and bottom squares -
     
    leaving one side open - 
     
    Turn the pin cushion the right way out and stuff.
    Then slip stitch the opening closed and your pin cushion is ready for use.
    
    
    How's that for quick and easy. There's even time for a cup of tea!

  • Summer & Colourful layout by Karine

    Thursday, 10 April, 2014

    Hello!

    Here is a new colourful page that feels like holidays. Are you with me? Let’s go!

    Supply list:

    Alphabets: American Crafts, Infocréa
    Stickers: Studio Calico, Evalicious, Crate Paper
    Spray inks: Tattered Angels
    Neon Pink Dauber: Hero Arts
    Pencil: Woody Stabilo
    Stamps: Glitz Design, Paper Artsy, Florilèges Design
    Stencil: The Crafter's Workshop
    Others: Gesso, tags, masking tape

    Dies:

    659133 Sizzix Thinlits Die-Moroccan Card Front
    658574 Sizzix Texture Fades Embossing Folders 2PK-Airmail & Compass Set

    This week let’s play again with gesso, stencils and spray inks.
    I had fun mixing 3 colours: turquoise blue, orange and pink. My lay-out will be sunny and dynamic!

    The tags are coloured with spray inks.

    I used the embossing folder “Voyage” with a white cardstock. Then I coloured it with a turquoise spray ink. The ink is applied on a Teflon mat. A bit of water is mixed with the ink then all you have to do is apply your paper on the ink-water mix several times to cover it partly.

    The geometric Sizzix die will be coloured with the same technique though not the same colour. I used the Dauber Neon Pink from Hero Arts.
    The two dies are superimposed and stapled together.

    Then add some stickers and masking tape and you’re done!

    It’s your turn to scrapbook now!





    Have a nice day,

    Une nouvelle page encore très patouille cette semaine réalisée à partir de Gesso, de pochoirs et d'encre en spray.
    Je me suis amusée à mixer 3 couleurs : turquoise, orange et rose pour une page ensoleillée et des plus dynamique !

    Les tags sont également teintés à l'aide d'encres en spray.

    La plaque à texturée "voyage" est embossée dans un premier temps dans du cardstock blanc, elle sera ensuite colorisée avec une encre en spray turquoise. La couleur est déposée sur un tapis téflon, j'ai rajouté un peu d'eau et j'ai plongé mon papier à plusieurs reprises pour la coloriser partiellement.

    La découpe géométrique Sizzix sera teintée quant à elle selon le même procédé mais avec une encre Dauber neon rose Hero Arts.
    Les deux découpes se superposent et sont agrafées.

    Complétez ensuite avec des stickers, du masking tape et le tour est joué !

    A vous !

    Bonne journée
