Digital fall cluster Freebie

Have I got a treat for you! After getting such great comments on the Fall Cluster tutorial I got in a creative mood and decided to create a digital version as well. This cluster is full of flowers, leaves, branches and other details, all in beautiful fall colors. You can use it for your digital projects such as cards or layouts. All you need to do is save the image (png file) to your computer. You can also use it in traditional projects simply by copy the image, resizing it and printing the cluster on a cardstock or pattern paper, cut it in any shape and add to your card or layout! You can find more digital freebies in the “Freebies” section of my blog. Have fun creating! Einat

Recycled Crafts – FaveCraft Blog Hop

We’re hopping again with all of our friends at FaveCraft! This time we’re all sharing recycled projects! Great ideas and inspiration on how to create wonderful projects using everyday objects, leftover materials, things you don’t need anymore and even things you want to throw away. My project is a printer’s trey. But this is not your ordinary printer’s trey, the one you buy at the craft store. My trey is made from an old tea box I didn’t need. At first I wanted to throw it away, but then I saw its compartments and I had an idea: why not turn it into a printer’s trey?! I painted it and added photos. To make it interesting I gave each photo a little curve. Then I added a few handmade embellishments. I made it really simple and easy because as it turned out, I ended up teaching it in a few classes for girls and teenagers. Have fun creating! Einat

101 Flower Tutorial #9: Fall Cluster

Fall is in the air! It’s my second favorite season (the first one is winter). I love it when the skies turn grey, the leaves turn orange and yellow and the first drops of rain clean the streets. So, of course today’s flower tutorial is going to be all about fall. You can make this fall cluster for all your Thanksgiving cards and layout and you can make it in a larger scale as a center piece for your holiday table or to decorate the front door. 1. Take different size and color flowers and adhere them together. 2. Cut pieces of metal wire and swirl the edges. 3. Punch or cut leaves from yellow and orange scraps of paper and attach to the wire. 4. Attach the wires and some more leaves to the bottom of the flower. Have fun creating! Einat

Ins(paper)ation: Home is where the heart is 3D frame

“God gave you a gift of 86,400 seconds today. Have you used one to say “thank you?”William Arthur Ward In spite the fact that I don’t celebrate Thanksgiving (since I don’t live in North America) I think it’s a great tradition to appreciate the things you are grateful for. Life has a different meaning if you stop and take stock of all the things you are thankful for. This wonderful tradition has inspired me to create something for and about my family. I created a 3D frame with a family photo, layers, embellishments and one of my favorite quotes: “Home is where the heart is”. I first colored the frame with a white acrylic paint. After it was was dry I painted it with brown color. I created the distressed look by sanding the brown layer up to the point where the white color was showing. I built the book shelf from a few scraps of wood. I painted it …

Sizzix Fresh Vintage Blog Hop: How do you feel?

Welcome to the last Sizzix blog hop featuring the new Fresh Vintage dies by Eileen Hull. Today we are using the beautiful, versatile Petal Flower die. You may ask yourselves what possibly can the designers come up with now, what can they create from a flower that we haven’t already seen? Well, to answer this question just keep on hopping to see all the wonderful projects created by these talented designers. To view the hop, you can click on the Fresh Vintage blinkie on the sidebar. This will take you around to all of the designers on the hop. You can see projects that have already been posted here. I have decided to use the flower not as a flower but as a clock, a mood clock!
