If you like the look of old embossed tin, the Embossed Metal Envelope Pocket

is a simple project to create.  (easy to follow instructions below)

How to make an Embossed Metal Envelope Pocket

I’m always up for a new crafty challenge,

so, when asked if I wanted to try the colored aluminum foils

from K & S Precision Metals, of course, I said yes.

These thick colored aluminum foils are not like your mother’s aluminum foil.

They are thick enough to bend and manipulate but thin enough to be able to cut with scissors.

And you don’t have to worry about cuts like from thicker metals. (this is fun stuff)

How to make an Embossed Metal Envelope Pocket with K & S Precision Metals

I could have used the metal as it comes, but I wanted it to be slightly thicker, so I double it up with cardstock in the middle.  It also helped it hold the embossed shape.

Directions:  

  • I used an unfolded small white envelope as my pattern.
  • Measure and cut a piece of colored foil slightly larger than the unfolded envelope.
  • To add adhesive on the back of the foil, place the foil colored-side up on the Xyron Creative Station®*Turn the handle of the Creative Station to run the foil through.  As it runs through, it adds complete adhesive covering on the underneath side of the foil.
  • Place the foil onto a piece of white cardstock the same size.

How to make an Embossed Metal Envelope Pocket with K & S Precision Metals

  • If you’re not artistically inclined, you can easily find a swirly scroll pattern to print and use as a pattern.
  • Place the foil with the cardstock side up onto a soft surface.  Tape the swirly scroll pattern onto the back of the cardstock.

How to make an Embossed Metal Envelope Pocket with K & S Precision Metals

  • Using medium to firm pressure, use a small ball stylus* to trace around the design to transfer it to the foil.

How to make an Embossed Metal Envelope Pocket with K & S Precision Metals

  • Remove the pattern from the back of the cardstock.
  • Trace around the opened envelope onto the back of the cardstock.
  • Cut the envelope shape using scissors.
  • Cut a second piece of foil the same size as the first and repeat the adhesive and embossing process, except do not add the foil to the cardstock. Place this piece of foil onto the back of the cardstock and retrim the envelope shape.

How to make an Embossed Metal Envelope Pocket with K & S Precision Metals

  • Use a ruler and bone folder to mark your envelope fold lines.

How to make an Embossed Metal Envelope Pocket with K & S Precision Metals

  • Paint over the foil with white multi-surface acrylic paint to give the pocket a brushed denim look.
  • Make sure to paint in one direction only.
  • Once the paint has dried, lightly sand over the embossed areas with a sanding block.
  • The sanding makes the embossed areas stand out.

How to make an Embossed Metal Envelope Pocket with K & S Precision Metals

  • Glue the edges of the pocket using rapid fuse all purpose adhesive*.
  • Tie a 1″ piece of ribbon around the envelope pocket.  I added a little bling using a broken silver barrette.
  • Cut a thin slice of floral foam* and place it inside the pocket.  Stick small flower stems into the floral foam.  (Both the floral foam and the flower stems were from Dollar Tree*.)
  • Punch two small holes in the envelope and add a piece of twine for hanging.
  • Add the embossed pocket to the middle of a boxwood wreath for a simple and elegant wreath decoration.

Eileen Hull & Sizzix New Dies

Chapter 1 Eileen Hull Sizzix Release

It’s that time of year when Sizzix releases its new designs.

And being part of the Eileen Hull Teams, I wanted to share a few projects

that I made with Eileen’s New Dies.

Watercolor Floral Postal Collage Card

The “Watercolor Floral Postal Card” is made using the Snail Mail Thinlets Die Set*.

Watercolor Floral Postal Collage Card

The snail mail die* is a faux postage stamp pane that fits on the front of an A-2 card.

It’s easy to create postage stamps by tearing them apart with a ruler

and the perforation marks.

Mae's Treasure Box made using Eileen Hull Sizzix XL Scoreboard Book Box Die

My favorite project hands-down is this sweet little treasure box

that I made for my new granddaughter that is coming in May.

I’m very excited to have a little more “pink” in my life.

I will be sharing more on how I put this box together later in the month.

It uses the New Eileen Hull XL Score-Board Book Box*.

This die is very versatile because you use it to create a book or a box.

Eileen Hull Sizzix Phone Stand

The New Phone Stand Die* is a quick and easy project to put together.

So easy to personalize with your favorite patterned paper.

And it looks good sitting on my desk.

These phone stands would make a fun gift.

Creating Backgrounds with Gel Press

Creating Backgrounds with Gel Press

I was recently reintroduced to the Gel Press, a reusable gel printing plate.

I’d seen the Gel Press in action a few years ago and even briefly tried my hand at it.

The Gel Press is a fun and creative way to make backgrounds.

This month, the Eileen Hull Teams collaborated with Gel Press

to create some awesome samples.  Check out Eileen’s Blog Here.

Creating Backgrounds with Gel Press

I watched several Gel Press videos online before jumping right in.

I was impressed with the idea of using die-cuts to make backgrounds

and used a few of Eileen’s Dies to make mine.

Creating Backgrounds with Gel Press

Here’s how I made the Snowflake Background:

  • Start with several colors of acrylic paint and use a Brayer* to blend the paint onto the gel press.
  • Place the Snowflake die-cuts (cut using the Wreath & Snowflake Thinlet Die Set*) directly onto the paint.
  • Place a white piece of paper onto the gel press and press over the cardstock to remove the excess paint.
  • Remove the snowflake die-cuts.  Place another piece of cardstock over the Gel Press to pick up the remaining paint and patterns.

Creating Backgrounds with Gel Press

I die-cut another snowflake in blue and adhered it to the background to create this card.

I used the Eileen Hull Sweater Embossing Folder* to create the background layer.

Creating Backgrounds with Gel Press

I also tried the same technique using dye inkpads instead of paint.  

I used small inkpads and dabbed them all over the gel press.

Use a Brayer* to blend the inks before adding the snowflake die-cuts.

Creating Backgrounds with Gel Press

Use the Xyron Creative Station* to adhere the snowflake background paper

to Mat Board*. Die-cut the mat board using the Tiny Book Die to create

this sweet little album.  (This tiny album measures 2 1/4″ x 3″.)

Creating Backgrounds with Gel Press

The perfect mini-album to add those snowy day pictures.

Creating Backgrounds with Gel Press

Create a simple accordion out cardstock for the inside pages of the album.

Warm & Cozy Snowflake Christmas Card

Warm & Cozy Snowflake Card-Sue's Creative Workshop www.sueeldred.com 6066

How to make a Warm & Cozy Snowflake Christmas Card 

using the Sweater Embossing Folder* from Sizzix* and Eileen Hull.

I have a “thing” for cable-knit sweaters. (just ask my family)

So it comes as no surprise how much I love this new embossing folder.

It’s perfect for creating quick and easy cards.

Warm & Cozy Embossed Sweater Card

Directions:

  • To create the embossed sweater layer, place a 3 3/4″ x 5″ piece of cream cardstock into the Sweater Embossing Folder*.  Place the embossing folder onto the Sizzix Big Shot* platform.   Crank the handle of the Big Shot* to run the embossing folder through the machine.
  • Adhere the embossed layer onto the blueberry cardstock layer. Adhere those layers onto a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ cream cardstock base.
  • Add adhesive to the back of the wood snowflake and adhere to the front of the card. Add the adhesive pearl to the center of the snowflake.
  • Tie a small bow and glue it onto the top of the snowflake.
  • Using a computer generated font, print the words “warm & cozy” onto a piece of cream cardstock.  Cut the cardstock into a strip with a v notch on each end. Place thin foam mounting squares under the cardstock strip and add to the front of the card under the wood snowflake.

FYI…This is a thick card.  You will need extra postage to mail it.  (It might be best to hand deliver.)

Five Simple Christmas Ornaments made with Kunin Felt

Making Christmas Ornaments with Kunin Felt

How to make Felt Christmas Ornaments…

I’ve found, I’m beginning to love creating handmade stitched ornaments.

It may take a little longer than gluing or sewing, but I find it relaxing.

And… Kunin Felt is the perfect material to use.

A big Thank You to Kunin Felt for sponsoring this month’s Designer Craft Connection Blog Hop.

Making Christmas Ornaments with Kunin Felt.

How to make a Felt Poinsettia Ornament:

  • Making a felt flower is simple, and you won’t need any fancy tools. (I learned how to make petal flowers many years ago from Martha Stewart.com.)  
  • Draw a simple petal shape onto a piece of cardstock for a pattern.
  • Trace the petal shape directly onto the felt. (Cut inside the lines when cutting out your petals so that the line doesn’t show.)  You will need 10 petals, eight for the flower and two for the leaves.

Making Christmas Ornaments with Kunin Felt

  • To create a soft delicate-looking poinsettia, I inked the flower petals with red ink and the leaf petals with green ink.

Making Christmas Ornaments with Kunin Felt

  • Thread the needle and thread, leave a long tail after the knot. Using a simple running stitch, thread the petals for the flower.  (I used the black thread for easier viewing.)

Making Christmas Ornaments with Kunin Felt

  • Next, remove the needle and gather the ends of the thread and cinch the petals together. Tie a knot.

Making Christmas Ornaments with Kunin Felt

  • Glue a “fancy” button into the center of the petals.
  • Glue the leaves under each side of the flower.
  • Cut two circles out of the cream felt. (jar lids make great patterns to trace)
  • Stitch around the circles using a blanket stitch. Before you sew it closed, insert a small amount of polyfill and stitch it closed. Glue the flower onto the front of the circle.
  • Using a darning needle, add a gold thread to the top of the ornament for hanging.  
  • Tie a ribbon bow and glue it onto the top of the ornament.

Making Christmas Ornaments with Kunin Felt

Another simple (well kind of simple) ornament to make is the Christmas Tree ornament.

Making Christmas Ornaments with Kunin Felt

How to make a Lacy Cream Christmas Tree Ornament:

  • Create a simple tree pattern using cardstock.  
  • Cut a rectangle, draw lines from the top center of the rectangle to the bottom two corners.
  • Cut the pattern out and trace it onto the felt.  
  • Optional: Cut a small rectangle to use as a tree trunk.
  • Using a variety of laces and trim, stitch it on the front of the “tree” with need and thread. (Stitch the ends inside of the felt.)
  • Align the felt pieces and stitch together using a blanket stitch. Before you sew it closed, insert a small amount of polyfill.
  • Add adhesive pearls onto the front of the Christmas Tree Ornament between the lace strips.
  • Add a piece of gold thread for hanging and a small gold bow.

Making Christmas Ornaments with Kunin Felt

As much as I love the first two ornaments, the red and green ones are my favorite. 

I made the green Christmas Tree ornament bigger than the cream one.  

  • I interwove red and white rick rack to make up the trim. I handstitched the rick rack trim onto the front of the tree shape.  
  • For fun, I stitched red and white Xs in between the trim.  
  • The tree is put together like the others, with a small amount of polyfill in the center.
  • Red and white twine was used for the hanger, with a red and white button on the top of the tree to finish it off.

How to make the Red Poinsettia Embroidery Hoop Ornament:

  • Create a Red Poinsettia using the flower directions above.
  • Open the embroidery hoop and place a piece of fabric over the center ring. (I used an old gray cable knit sweater.)   
  • Place the outside hoop over the sweater and tighten the embroidery hoop. Cut the excess fabric from the back of the embroidery hoop.
  • Glue a cardstock circle onto the back of the embroidery hoop.
  • Measure and glue the pine craft stem around the outside of the embroidery hoop.  
  • Glue the red poinsettia to the front of the embroidery hoop.
  • Add a piece of twine to the top to hang.  Glue a ribbon bow onto the top of the ornament.

Making Christmas Ornaments with Kunin Felt-Sue's Creative Workshop www.sueeldred.com 7669

This soft and pretty Mitten Ornament was made similar to the other felt ornaments.

Except I used a mitten die to cut out the felt pieces.

If you don’t have a mitten die, search online for a mitten outline to size and use as a pattern.  

Making Christmas Ornaments with Kunin Felt

Every year, I make a few new ornaments for my Christmas Tree.

I think these will fit in quite nicely.  (they’d also make a great handmade gift)

AND… Did you know?

That Kunin Felt is manufactured right here in the US from recycled plastic bottles.

It takes ten bottles to make a pound of fiber. How cool is that!

Cable Knit Snowflake Ornament

Cable Knit Embossed Snowflake Ornament

Cable Knit Embossed Snowflake Ornament…

The moment I saw the NEW Cable Knit Sweater Embossing Folder* from

Eileen Hull and Sizzix, I knew I had to have it.  (I may have gasped!)

I have had a LOVE ♥ for Cable Knit Sweaters for A LONG time.  (just ask my kids)

Cable Knit Embossed Snowflake Ornament

The ornament is a simple project to make.  

  • I used the Xyron Creative Station Lite* to add adhesive to the back of my white cardstock before embossing it with the cable knit embossing plate*.
  • Adhere the embossed cable knit to a piece of mat board and cut out a circle using the Ornament Box Die. For extra thickness, adhere to a second circle to the back of the ornament.
  • Hot glue craft pine stems* around the circle.
  • Add a red snowflake, adhesive pearls, and ribbon to finish off the ornament.

My Snazzy Little Red Camper was inspired by a Camper I saw a couple of years ago.

This beautiful Red Camper was a Holiday Prop, the perfect place for a picture. 

This little camper was so adorable, I fell in love.  

I remember saying to myself that if I ever decide to go camping, it better be

in something like this.

How to Create a Flower Garden Notecard Folio

To Celebrate Spring and all things Flowers, I decided to make a Notecard Folio using paper from

Carta Bella’s Flower Garden Collection and Eileen Hull’s New Folio Journal Die from Sizzix*.

Flower Garden Notecard Folio-Sue's Creative Workshop www.sueeldred.com 3858

Album Details:

  • The album pieces are die-cut using Sizzix White Matboard Sheets*, which is the perfect size for cutting long pieces.  (You will need to cut the album pieces twice.)
  • There is a smaller rectangle die-cut piece that comes with the die. (cut two)  You will use the piece to create a pocket with the outer flap.  
  • Align and adhere both ends of the spine together using Tear It! Double-Sided Crafter’s Tape*.
  • Cover the front and inside of the album with decorative scrapbook paper.  (see album making tip below)
  • Album Making Tip:  I use my Xyron Creative Station* to add adhesive to my paper before sticking it onto the matboard.  It adds a complete adhesive layer without puckering or wrinkles.
  • Using a craft knife and cutting mat, I cut both ends of the flaps down to create 2 1/2″ pockets.  Adhere the “pocket pieces” (the small scored pieces that come with the die) to finish the bottom of the pockets.
  • I used Carta Bella Farmhouse Market Collections Stickers* to embellish the pocket fronts.

Flower Garden Notecard Folio-Sue's Creative Workshop www.sueeldred.com 3782

  • Create simple 3 1/2″ x 4 1/2″  layered cards using the Carta Bella Flower Garden:  3″ x 4″ Journaling Cards*.
  • After using one of the Journaling Cards for my front and back cover and another section for my green spine, I was able to create 8 small notecards to fill my notecard folio.  

Flower Garden Notecard Folio-Sue's Creative Workshop www.sueeldred.com 3898

  • The ribbon was added around the album before adding the front and back cover.
  • I created a small chipboard tag for the spine and punched the holes using a Crop-A-Dile Power Punch*.  
  • On the inside center binding, I hung a pen on the loop of ribbon that was added for the tag.

Winter Fun Folio Album

The Winter Fun Folio Album made using Eileen Hull’s New Folio Journal Die from Sizzix*

and the Carta Bella Paper Company Winter Market Collection*.

Hi Everyone!

Today, I’m participating with Eileen Hull and Teams for a Chapter 1 Release Party Blog Hop using

the New Folio Journal Die*.  Just wait till you see all of the fun options the New Folio Journal Die* has in store for you!

Here is my Album using the New Folio Journal Die*

It is a fun Winter Themed album with four smaller albums tucked inside.

It’s the perfect album for adding little nooks and crannies.  This album was fun to make.

I even added an Antique Bronze Hasp Latch Hook* to keep everything securely in place.

For fun, I will be giving my album away to one lucky commenter.

(Information on the Hop and chances to win prizes at the bottom of the post.)

*Disclosure:  This blog uses affiliate links.  If you choose to make a purchase using one of the links, I receive a small commission (at no additional cost to you) that helps offset the costs of maintaining this blog.  Thanks for your support!

Album Details:

  • The album pieces are die-cut using Sizzix White Matboard Sheets*, which is the perfect size for cutting long pieces.  (You will need to cut the album pieces twice.)
  • Before I assembled my album, I painted both sides of the album pieces with DecoArt Multi-Surface Acrylic Paint in Night Sky.
  • The two smaller rectangle die-cut pieces shown in the bottom right corner of the picture comes with the die. They are used for creating pockets with the outer flaps.  I painted them dark blue as well.

Album Making Tip:  I like to use my Xyron Creative Station* to add adhesive to my paper before sticking it onto the matboard.  It adds a complete adhesive layer with puckering or wrinkles.

Here’s a picture of the album when it’s open.

  • On one end, I left the flap in tack, I use it to corral the mini-albums in the center of the spine.
  • On the other end, I cut the flap down and created a pocket to hold a small removable album.
  • I used Rapid Fuse Adhesive* with the matboard to adhere to the pocket pieces. It not only dries extremely fast, but it holds well too.

(I apologize, there are too many details to write a full tutorial on the album.)

  • I used Blue and White Twine to attach the three small albums to the spine.

  • Each little album has several blank pages to add pictures and journaling.

Here is a close up picture of the back pocket. 

The Mini-Album easily slips in and out of the pocket.

There is plenty of room in the pocket for adding pictures or a second small album.
