Hi everyone! I am super excited to share that my little shadow box is featured over on Canvas Corp blog today! As you know I love creating with diecuts but they can a little expensive if not on sale or if you are lucky enough to find them on clearance. When I do purchase them I always try to think of other possible uses besides the obvious use the diecut is intended for and this is the case with the House Gift Card Holder Diecut. I had purchased these cute printables from Lisa’s Altered Art on Etsy and I had wanted to use an image or two in some type of shadow box. Then I had the bright idea that I could use the House Gift Card Holder and the Make it 3D diecuts to make my own shadow box. For instructions and photos you can find the post HERE.
Hi everyone! I am here to share my project for Eileen Hull’s November Art with Heart Challenge.
Eileen has new diecuts called Stitchlets out this month and let me tell you I am in LOVE!!!
It is a combination of sewing and paper crafts all rolled into one! I started with the Embroidery Hoop diecut which I cut out twice with mat board. I spritzed with Tattered Angels Gold Glimmer Mist and I laid it the hoops off to the side to dry. (I didn’t spray the circles that are in the center of the hoops since I won’t be using them). Also I inked the “closure”/top of the hoop with silver ink.
Next I cut netting a little bit bigger than the smaller hoop and wrapped around the hoop and then adhered to the backside of hoop. I inserted the smaller hoop into the larger one and added a little glue to the backside. Next while the hoop is still turned over I sprinkled sequins on the netting and then adhered a second netting over that and trimmed off the excess. The second set of hoops I adhered over that.
I arranged the flowers in the pocket and on the hoop and then glued down. I also used the Banners and Pennants diecut to finish off this fun and cut hoop.
Originally I hadn’t planned on adding sequins and netting to the projects but I really do think it turned out great…if I do say so myself. 😉 I do plan on making more of these…maybe sequins with a Christmas/winter theme?
If you do have any questions about this project please let me know.
Hi everyone! Fall weather is finally here and though I am not a fan of cold weather I do enjoy the upcoming holidays and the fun I have being able to decorate. 🙂
Why I am here I wanted to share the latest Sew AMUSEing Mailbox Muse kit project from Altered Pages that is available for purchase. This is a peak at what I created with the goodies in this kit. The base of this journal is a 6″x9″ clasp envelope…can you believe that?!?!? For the directions and for other projects from the design team be sure to hop on over to Altered Pages to get your kit before they are gone!
