Eileen Hull’s Heartfelt House Pocket Diecut and Sizzix Maker Challenge

Hi everyone! Are you ready for the Sizzix Maker Challenge featuring Eileen Hull’s House Pocket Diecut??? I am!!!

I decided to create a whimsical 3D house. I cut two houses, four eaves from chipboard and two of the “sides” from the Make it 3D Diecut.

I cut another two houses and two 3D sides from cardstock. I inked the edges of the Momenta cardstock before adhering to the chipboard. 

Side note I cut my 3D sides down so I could get my hand inside to hold the tabs down while the adhesive dried and I cut the tabs off of the cardstock since it wouldn’t be seen.

Next I cut a base for my house to sit on from a scrap piece of matboard. I used a mix of  watered down Leaf and Frog ColorBox Blends ink which can be found HERE. Once the base was dry I adhered the house on top of it.

I thought I had taken a before photo of the roof but apparently I didn’t. I cut a 2″ x 7 3/4″ piece of matboard measure and folded at 3 7/8″. I embossed the roof and used a combination of Tattered Leather and Bronze Glimmer Mists on the roof. I splattered Aloha Green Glimmer Glaze to give the roof the look of moss growing on it. After I adhered the roof to the house I added real bits of dried moss and flowers to the roof.

I cut strips from an old sheet of music and adhered around the base of the house. I added moss and I cut flowers from the Stitchy Flowers and Leaf Diecuts, shaped, put together and added buttons and gems to the center of each.

I added pieces of a bingo card to the front and back of the house. Next I lightly added color to the little boy’s cheeks and hair before adhering it and a bird that I cut from the Birds & Butterflies Diecuts to the front of the house. To finish both off I added a crown and party hat.

The back side of the house I cut from cardstock a butterfly from the Bird & Butterflies Diecuts. I adhered it to the house and added a zipper pull to the center of the butterfly along with a bit of flower ribbon.

  1. Tonya, your little house is fantastic, beautiful, clever and an absolute delight! I love the colours you used for the walls, the roof is amazing and those flowers are so beautiful. The moss is a lovely touch and the crown on the little boy and the party hat on the bird are wonderful finishing touches. Love this!! Hugs, Anne xx

  2. Tonya this is one of my favorite projects ever that you have made. And I was so happy when I saw you had used the Blends because I LOVE that color- I will have to use that combo! Each little touch is so cute and whimsical. My favorite is the boy petting the party bird ❤
