Don’t Forget to Take a Break!

I was so honored and excited when Eileen Hull asked me to be a guest blogger and create a project with her Sizzix dies. It’s always so much fun working with her dies and coming up with new ways and ideas. This time was no different. This last few weeks were really hectic for me. Between launching the VIP Room on April and moving the website and blog to a new home things got crazy and there were days I didn’t even get up from my desk to eat or drink. So I decided to use one of my favorite dies and create a visual reminder for myself to stop and take a break every once in awhile. I love creating 3D projects so this creative pause was just what I needed! I had so much fun masking, painting and inking that I was almost sad when I finished the project 🙂 I know you’re used to having a video tutorial …

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 …
