Sizzix Triple Play Blog Hop, week 7: Christmas Countdown

Hello my friends, we have reached our final week in the blog hop. I’m so sorry it’s over; I had so much fun making all these wonderful projects. Thus week is no different, Eileen Hull designed a bunch of Treat Bag Toppers and we got to play with them! I wanted to create something different and not use them as toppers for a treat bag. Their shape reminded me of those standing calendars you put on your desk, so I decided to design a Christmas countdown calendar. I covered all the larger shapes with paper and colored the smaller shapes with colored pencil. I made small pages counting down to Christmas and attached them to the topper. I added the title to one of the shapes and embellished it. I adhered the shapes to a wire and inserted it through the fold line, securing them on the back with sticky tape. I hope you enjoyed the blog hop as much …

Sizzix Triple Play Blog Hop, week 6: YOU Mini Album (Tutorial)

Week 6 of the Blog Hop is here! I can’t believe 6 weeks have already passed and the hop is almost over. I love mini albums, so I was very excited to play around with Brenda Pinnick’s Album, Brackets XL Die. I got paper and canvas pieces which made it even more fun. What made my happy feeling complete was the fact that the idea I had for the mini album solved a problem for me. When I put photos of my kids in my purse they always get lost and if I put them in a mini album it doesn’t stay whole for a long time because of all the stuff I have in the purse. This mini is perfect for that because it has a bag of its own! I took the two large canvas pieces, sewed them together and made a little special bag to put my mini album in. then I made the pages of the …

Yummy apple

One of the Jewish New Year’s customs is to eat a red apple. The apple symbolizes the year that we want to have: sweet, whole, round and smooth with no bumps. To emphasize this wish the apple is dipped in honey and then eaten with the blessing: “may we have a good sweet year!” In light of this, apple is a popular theme in The New year’s cards, dishes, table cloths, napkins etc. I decided to go with the flow and make a card with an apple. The writing on the apple: “Good, sweet year”.       Challenges:Etsy Inspired #102 – Global Child Collection: inspired by Compassion for our planet.Sunday sketch & stamp #35Crafty Angles 42 – something old something newC.R.A.F.t challenges 64 – photo inspirationPolka doodles 33 – Vintage styleCrazy 4 challenges – sketch C4C51Just Scraps #18 – fussy cutting    

Happy Box

It’s time for a new Sizzix blog hop! This time our challenge was to design a rectangular box. Every time I design one of Eileen’s Dies I simply can’t wipe the smile of my face. They are so cute, and so much fun to play with. I love boxes, especially if they’re small and I can put cute little things in them. I knew exactly what to do with this box. It will be my HAPPY BOX, where I can put things that make me happy. First I covered the box with an amazing K&Company’s vintage patterned paper. Then I decided to try something I have never tried before. I wanted to challenge myself, so I sewed flowers from fabric and ribbon, and attached them to the box. I managed to give them a little bit of a sculpted look. I cut the leaves from Mesh and paper and gave them a little wave for a dimensional look. If you enjoyed seeing these ScoreBoard projects on the hop, …

A recipe for…

I am a big fan of recyceling. I love altered art and the fact that you can take something and turn it to something completly different. Every week I throw the milk carton and think to my self, if only I could do something with it…  and then I thought of a great ides: A recipe box! I will turn the milk carton to a special place for my recipes.  All the recipes will be written on cards and they will be organized, standing up right, in the box.  After I washed it I covered it with paper. I cut the box on three sides, leaving the back intact. Keeping it closed was tricky, I wanted it to be nice but strong, so I decided to use a ribbon that can be tied and opened. The only question was how to connect the ribbon to both sides.                                                                       For the bottom part I used a chipboard tag and for the upper part I used …
