Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!! It is week 4 of the Sizzix triple play blog hop. Please click on the navigation bar on the right side of my blog to go to the next designer's blog. You can hop either forward or backward. For this week's project, we used Eileen Hull's frame & frame back scoreboard pro die. I decided to make my frame into a deco table accent. Most of the materials used are leftover scraps from previous make & take projects throughout the year.I used the Artist Studio bird die and poured chunky white glitter over it. I love glitter!
The black felt and tulle flower is Tim Holtz tattered florals die. And the branch with leaves is from last years release.

About a week ago, I was at the store and saw the metal base trays that just came in from Sizzix and knew I had to get one for myself. You know how it is, if it catches your eye, you have to buy it. I love the idea of being able to do cut outs on the shaped dies. There were a bunch of these mini mover and shapers dies that can be used on the metal tray. So I got both Tim Holtz winter wonder and wish die and made this snowman. The pillowbox is a Big Shot Pro die. You can make your own gift packaging with this die.
The embossing folder is a Basic Grey set called Sugar and Starry Night.
Hope to see you back this Thursday for this week's Sizzix Triple Play Bloghop. I know it's Thanksgiving but wait till you see this week's project!
Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving me your sweet comments! Have a great day!!!

Sizzix Triple Play Blog Hop Week 3 - Merry Deer

Good morning and welcome back to week #3 of the Sizzix Triple Play Blog Hop. For this week's project, we used Brenda Pinnick's beauty bloom flower die. There are several different sized flowers on the die but I decided to use only one of them. I made the flower using Tim Holtz's rose flower technique and glued and poured chunky white glitter over the petals. The box is cut from the Eclips machine.
The cute deer is a new die release that I cut out of chipboard and glittered.
You can visit all the other designers by clicking on the navigation buttons on the upper right side of my blog. It's been so amazing seeing all the different ideas that come out of the chosen die for the week.

Yesterday, we had a make & take at J's. We made a box cut from the Sizzix Eclips machine and used Dandelion Designs stamps to decorate the cute little box.For the background, we used the snowflake stamp. Everyone picked one of the 4 different animals to use on their box. The stamps are: Ho ho ho, Fuzzy dog w/ wreath, Wrapped with love, and Stocking.
Tag is a Martha Stewart punch and to/from stamp and baker's twine. You can fill the box with mini candies.
Hope you're having a wonderful Sunday and don't forget to stop by this Thursday for week 3 of the Sizzix triple play bloghop!!!

Sizzix Triple Play Blog Hop Week 2 - Christmas ornament shaker box

We're on week 2 for the Sizzix triple play blog hop. You can click on the navigation buttons on the right side of my blog to get to all the designer's blogs. For this weeks project, we are using the Sizzix twist cube 3-D (pop-up) die by Karen Burniston.
I decided to make my cube into a Christmas ornament shaker box instead of a pop-up. For the red flowers decorating the box, I used Sizzix flower layers & tis the season die and outlined the edges with a Versa Marker pen. I used Holiday Emma stamp by CC Designs for the image on the box.
The shaker part of the box are from 2 different size circle punches. Word stamp and snowflake background stamps are from Hero Arts. I tied a ribbon to the top of the box so you can hang the ornament on the tree.

Make & take this Saturday 11/13

I will be doing a make & take at J's this Saturday, 11/13 from 10 - 12 pm. Please go to the site for the supplies that you will need.
Hope to see you there!!!

Oh deer!

Hope you enjoyed last week's Sizzix bloghop. Don't forget to come back Thursday for this week's project. For today's post, I've had this Hero Art's baby reindeer image sitting on my craft table waiting to be made into something. I went with another shaker card and a simple card idea. As I colored the antlers, I sort of went out of the lines so I covered it up with some red gemstones. The only problem I found is the little beads get stuck on the adhesive when you shake the card.The snowflake is from last years MS punch line.
The circle border punch is a large punch from EK Success. I thought it matched well with the oval scallops used on the shaker part of the card.
Well, thanks for stopping by today and don't forget to come back on Thursday to see what we made with this week's die pick. Have a wonderful Tuesday!!!

Sizzix Triple Play Blog Hop Week 1 - Gingerbread and Candy Canes

Hello and good morning! I am so excited to be a part of the Sizzix Triple Play Blog Hop - week 1. There are 60 designers participating in the hop and you can click on the button on my sidebar to get to the next blog. For this week's post, we were asked to make something using this Sizzix Pro Scoreboard 3-D House die by Eileen Hull. At first, I had no idea what I was going to make with what was in my packet. I went with pink because that is my favorite color and it matches the red and green Christmas colors.For the roof of the house, I used white chunky glitter to give it a snowy effect. Then I glued the edges using a white mini pom pom trim. All the stamps used are Dandelion Designs.
I put a tea light candle on the inside of the house. Here is a close up view of the light.
Thanks for stopping by and hope you are having fun stopping at everyone's blog!!! Don't forget to check back next week Thursday to see what we made with our next project. Have a great day!!!
