Strawberry Box Delight!

Hello, Friends!

I LOVE strawberries!  Besides blueberries, strawberries are the next best fruit!  ;)  

When we were in Chicago, our hotel had the best breakfast buffet.  They had the typical yogurt, omelet bar, pastries, bacon, sausage, etc.  But, they also had FRESH blueberries and strawberries!  YUMMY!  I went crazy.  It's funny, since in CA, we usually have fresh fruit year round...but, I tell ya, that bowl of fruit every morning really made my day!  ;)

Here's a cute strawberry box by Beth.  It brings back the memories of those breakfasts.  ;)



Instructions:


Die-cut Strawberry Box out of patterned paper and cardstock. Ink edges of Leaf. Fold along crease lines to assemble. Run ribbon through the holes at the top of each section, pull to gather tops together, feed through the leaf holes and tie into a bow. Die-cut Leaves out of cardstock and attach to the top of the Box. Die-cut 3-D Flowers out of cardstock, assemble, embellish flower centers with jewels and attach to the top of the Box. For added interest, fill in any spaces on the Box top with moss.

Supplies Used:

Other Supplies: Cardstock, Patterned Paper, Jewels, Moss, Ribbon

Happy Crafting!

Snowflake Embellished Candle

Hello, Friends!

Have you ever been in the situation where you need a gift, but you don't have time to go to the mall, and you really don't want to spend a lot of money?  {I know I've been in that situation!}   ;)

Well, the next time you are at the craft store, pick up a few extra candles and you could easily create this masterpiece for a gift!  ;)

Debi created this stunning candle that would make the perfect gift!

Instructions:
Die-cut Snowflakes from layers of tissue paper. Using a heat embossing tool, carefully heat up the side of the candle until it is slightly warm. Quickly place Snowflakes on warm candle. Lay a piece of waxed paper over the top of Snowflakes and heat up just to melting point. Remove waxed paper and finish heating up Snowflake until wax just barely covers tissue paper. Repeat this step until entire candle has been covered. Tie ribbon around candle and add jewels for embellishment.

Note: Remove embellishment before lighting candle.


Products Used:
Other Supplies: Candle, Colored Tissue Paper, Crystal Drop, Heat Tool, Rhinestone Embellishment, Ribbon, Waxed Paper

I know if I received a candle like this, I'd never light it!  :)  I'd just keep it like this for decoration!  :)


Happy Crafting!

Triple Play Blog Hop: Week 3-Beauty Bloom


It's blog hop day again! This week our guest designers are using the Beauty Bloom Originals die by Brenda Pinnick. This die has been a consistent seller since it was first introduced in Brenda's very first collection with Sizzix! This die is versatile and fun to use because it can be layered with individual petals cut out of differing papers or fabric. It'll be a lot of fun to see what all the Designers do with it – you can put a flower on anything and it will just make it better!

We've asked the designers to have their projects loaded by noon, EST, today. Hop around and be sure to leave a nice comment for the participants- they are putting out amazing projects that we hope will inspire you!

Ready to get started? Click on any of the designers' blog links below and then use the navigation buttons that you'll find in the blogs' sidebars to hop in either direction around the ring. At any point if you want to return to the Sizzix blog you can hit the center "Sizzix" button or just click on the logo.

Who's Birthday?!?

Debi is sharing a great birthday theme with us today....

Take it away, Debi....

Well, it’s another birthday in the art room and another opportunity to show what fabulous dies and e-clips cartridges we have. I created a banner using our Starter Kit Cartridge (#655934). The sentiment was created first in standard font then cut in another color using the shadow feature. The branch and owl were cut by hand from paper- covered chipboard.



The Leaves (#656715) were cut from various shades of paper and stitched into a line formation. Very easy to do! I then attached them to the branches.


These treat bags added to the “owl” theme of the party. I used Tim Holtz’s die, Movers & Shapers, Ornamental for the head. Any of the larger leaf dies (#656714 or #656715) will work for his arms and Hearts (#656335) formed the feet. I hand cut the beak.




Finally, I created a “tree” using two trunk bases that were slit so that one side slid into the other. The middle base was a toilet roll holder, painted and tabbed at bottom. Our Big Shot Pro Scallop Circle die served as the trees leaf base. To support cupcakes or other treats, remember to cover chipboard with your choice of paper then die-cut the Scallop Circle. These make up the foundation of the tree. Next, cut several Scallops from just paper to make the branchy stuff on top. Cut them in half, then fold in half so that Scallops to Scallops meet. Create tabs on the straight edge side by scoring. Make tiny v cuts in the center of the tab section so that the tabs can be adhered to the base. Adhere in place. Cupcakes placed in our Cupcake Holder(#656142), makes it feel like it’s a tree!



Debi, what a great theme! Happy Belated Birthday, Jill! ;)


And now, a new eclips video!

Believe it or not, the eclips can actually realign the Cutting Blade to the last point before the Cutting Mat was unloaded. What a memory! Check out the video....

Gosh, I wish my memory was this good! ;)

Happy Crafting!

Full Reveal of Kathy Peterson's Design My Adirondack Chair

{August 17, 2010}

by Julianna Hudgins

A huge thank you to Kathy Peterson and Cedar Store for inviting me to be a part of the Design My Adirondack Blog Hop. I had so much fun designing my chair. My inspiration came from my trip to Puerto Rico this past June where I taught several workshops for Sizzix. I met the most amazing women while I was there. They truly filled my heart with love and creative motivation. I will never forget you and the joy that you brought to me. Te amo mucho! This chair is for you!

I used my Sizzix Big Shot and some of my favorite dies.
Sizzix Big Shot Machine, Bigz Tattered Florals Die by Tim Holtz, Originals Phrase, Enjoy Die, Originals Phrase, Dream Die, Bigz Flower 3-D Die and Bigz Decorative Accent, Swirl #3 Die

I also used white vinyl for my flowers, Viva Decor modeling grass, beaded fringe, peacock feathers, cabochons, Hot Fix crystals, Zebra fabric and LOTS of Aleene's Tacky Glue.


I painted my chair Turquoise Sea SR1109 Valspar Signature Color Seaside Retreat from Lowe's.
Then I laid out my designs in the form of tattoos on what I would call the shoulder, arm, belly and ankle of the chair.
Here's the shoulder with Hot Fix crystals running down its arm, titled Enjoy Life!
Here is my chair's belly, titled Dream Big!

And here is its ankle with a little swirl and layered tattered flower.
