Home Sweet Home Shadow Box

Home Sweet Home Shadow Box Frame

The Home Sweet Home Shadow Box was made with Eileen Hull’s

New Shadow Box Dies and Elements from Sizzix.

Home Sweet Home Shadow Box Frame

I used a combination of several of the new dies to make my Home Sweet Home Shadow Box.

The shadow box was die-cut using a thick kraft cardstock. (110 lbs.)

I added double-sided adhesive foam behind the house, grass, flowers, and sign to

make it dimensional. I used toothpicks cut and painted white behind the picket fence

and inserted them into tiny holes poked into the base of the shadow box.

Cardmaking with Vinyl…

Did you know that the same vinyl you use to embellish everyday items

around your home can be used to create beautiful cards?

StyleTechCraft adhesive vinyl makes it easy to create cards with intricate and delicate designs.

Use it with your Cricut or Cameo electronic cutters and even with steel rule dies.

The possibilities are endless!

Card Making with StyleTechCraft Vinyl

This month the StyleTechCraft Design Team was asked to use Polished Metal Vinyl

to create a project.  In the past several years, I’ve added StyleTechCraft vinyl

to almost every imaginable surface around my house.

I have used it on plates, glasses, coffee cups, vases, metal, wood and more.

But I often forget to use it to create cards.

If you like making cards with hearts…

there’s no reason to stop just because Valentine’s Day’s over.

You can make heart cards any time of the year.

Maker's Movement Striped Heart Die

I used the New Striped Heart Die* from The Maker’s Movement with several of

Heart Cards for All Occasions

Pink Heart Card

  • I played with different patterns in the same pink hues to make these simple heart cards.
  • I adhered the paper onto white cardstock using my Xyron Creative Station* to make a double layer before die-cutting the heart.  It gives the “heart” a little dimension without being too much.

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.

Simple Heart Shaker Card

How to make a Simple Heart Shaker Card

  • Start with a 5″ x 5″ white card base.
  • Die-cut the pieces for the shaker element using the Always & Forever paper pad.

Simple Heart Shaker Card

  • Cut 3¼” x 3¼” piece of striped paper, die-cut the heart shape in the center of the striped paper.
  • Cut a 3¼” x 3¼” piece of Valentine’s words.
  • Die-cut a silver heart border using silver adhesive vinyl or silver cardstock.
  • Die-cut a pink gingham frame using the scalloped frame die.

Love You Forever Valentine's Day Card

  • To create the dimensional rose on the front of the card, “fussy cut” a large and small rose from the rose background paper found in the paper pad.
  • Place a small a thin 3D foam square* under both roses and adhere the smaller rose to the top of the larger rose.

Simple Heart Shaker Card

  • Adhere the scalloped gingham frame to the front of the striped paper with the heart cut-out.
  • Cut a 3¼” x 3¼” piece of clear acetate.  Remove the protective coating off of the acetate and adhere to the back of the heart-opening.
  • Adhere the silver heart border to the front of the acetate inside the heart-opening.

  • Cut a 4½” x 4½” rose background layer and adhere to the center of the white card.
  • Adhere the Valentine words layer to the center of the rose background layer.

  • Adhere the dimensional rose to the front of the card at the top of the heart.
  • Cut the tiny words “You are the best” using the Valentine’s word paper and adhere to the bottom of the gingham frame.

Snowflake Kisses

Snowflake Kisses Card

As I finished up my Christmas Cards for the season,

I thought I’d make one last card that isn’t traditionally Christmas.

I wanted to make a Winter card that would work for a Winter Birthday

or Valentine’s Day. (but could also work for a Christmas card)

Making a Christmas Putz House

Making a Christmas Putz House

Christmas Putz houses are little cardboard or paper houses.

Sometimes illuminated, they are usually decorated with mica flakes

and glitter to make festive Holiday Villages.

Making a Christmas Putz House
Last year, the Eileen Hull Teams got together to bring everyone a little

Comfort and Joy during a rough Christmas Season.

Everyone seemed to enjoy it, so we decided to do it again.

My Christmas Putz House, made with Eileen’s House Ornament Die*,

is my contribution to this year’s “Comfort and Joy” collaboration.

Making a Christmas Putz House

Materials Used:  (*affiliate link)

Making a Christmas Putz House

Directions:

  • Cut two 6″ x 8″ pieces of Christmas Scrapbook.
  • Run both pieces of paper design side up through the Xyron Creative Station®*. As the paper moves through, it adds adhesive to the underneath side. You get complete adhesive covering.
  • Cut two pieces of Sizzix Matboard* 6″ x 8″.
  • Adhere the Christmas Scrapbook paper onto each one of the mat boards. (Underneath will be plain)
  • Lay covered mat board on top of the House Ornament Die*. Sandwich the die and mat board between the cutting plates. Run the die, matboard, and cutting plate through the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine*. The Big Shot will cut out the house shape and two tiny houses you can use on a later project.
  • Cut two of the house shapes.
  • Carefully fold on the scored lines.
  • Cut off the top tab with the two holes on both houses. (It is for making the house into an ornament.)
  • You will also need to cut the bottom flap from one of the houses.
  • Use Rapid Fuse Adhesive* to assemble the house. Glue all sides of the house together before gluing the roof tabs.  

Making a Christmas Putz House

  • For the Roof: Cut a piece of Kraft Corrugated paper 2 1/4″ x 4″. Fold in half and glue to the top of the roof.
  • Place two small pieces of white mat board over the window section of the ornament house die and run through the big shot die cutting machine. Trim around the matboard to create two small windows. Cut two small pieces of gold paper or vellum to fit under the window frame and glue them into place. Glue the windows frames onto the house.  
  • Cut a tiny piece of mat board to use as a door.  Glue a small piece of corrugated paper over the door for the roof.
  • Use a 3″ x 4″ piece of mat board as the base for the house. Cover the mat board with scrapbook paper.
  • Glue the putz house, bottle brush tree, and mini snowman ornament to the base.
  • Decorate your Christmas Putz House with small wreaths, snowflakes, glitter and mica flakes.
