I Spy Saturday: August 11

Today for I Spy Saturday I want to show you four projects that I spied that all feature the same die, Eileen Hull's Sweet Treats Candy Jars.

First up, this fabulous card by Gerry van Gent  that features a super cute little house with opening doors.  I found this card in the gallery at Two Peas in a Bucket:

After spotting the card by Gerry I followed a link to her blog and was so thrilled to see more inspiration for the Candy Jars die.  How gorgeous are these pieces?  Gerry shares photos for each of these projects on her blog here:

The next two examples come from Eileen herself!  For this jar, she shares how she create a sweet mini book project for her granddaughter featuring the jar for the covers.  Find it on her blog at:

This second example is also comes from Eileen.  For this project she used the jar to create a birth announcement for her new grandson Benjamin.  She shares the details on her blog:

I love how these four examples show different creative ideas for the Candy Jar die, projects way beyond the candy treat packaging that you might think of for the die.  The certainly demonstrate the versatility of dies!

And speaking of Eileen, we recently celebrated all things Eileen with a awesome giveaway and gallery focusing on Eileen's many different dies. I am happy to announce that the winner of the prize pack from the Sizzix blog from the Eileen Hull weekend promotion was Anita Baddock. Congratulations Anita!

If you have projects featuring Eileen's dies we could love to see them!  Please share them with us this week in our I Spy gallery below.  We would love to see what you have created!

I hope you enjoyed this edition of I Spy Saturday! Don't forget, each week we are sharing what we are spying on PinterestFacebookTwitter, and on Flickr as well as surfing around the world wide web looking for your Sizzix creations. You can also share a link with us from your blog or online gallery with the InLinkz button below.

  2. Love seeing the projects everyone created using the same die.

  3. Great projects and I just ordered that die, I love what i see!

    1. Thanks for ordering it Hetty- hope you have fun with it!

  4. I love the shape of this die. Can it cut fabric? If it does, it would make an amazing jar quilt!

    1. Michelle, this die absolutely cuts fabric! In fact you can cut a stack of fabric with it! You are right- it would make an adorable jar quilt!

      I also like to cover my matboard with fabric instead of paper sometimes (see the third project down). I make sure to add Fray Check to the edges so they don't unravel.
