Sizzix Eileen Hull Shadow Box dies

I made this lovely framed piece recently for a Facebook live, so thought I’d share some instructions on making it.

I used the largest frame die from the Shadow Box #2 set for the frame, and cut it four times to make a square.

This frame measures 15.5cm x 15.5cm, so I cut a piece of kraft card that size for the backing, then added some pale aqua card to the front.

I then used a Tim Holtz stencil (THS004) to add some uneven stripes with Sizzix Texture paste. I then added some Prima Sparks acrylic paint on top, in a rainbow. For the rest of the background I did a little bit of stamping in brown ink (Tim Holtz Papillon and Studio Light Jenine’s Mindful Art Collection). Once the ink had dried I dry-brushed some gesso on the background.

To create a little ledge for the houses, I cut two strips of mat board and stuck them back to back, then covered with a piece of frayed burlap. I cut the houses from kraft card and backed them with some patterned paper and an old book page. I added them with foam pads to give a bit of dimension.

I then dry-brushed some gesso on the frame, on the front and sides, then added some Tim Holtz Crackle Texture paste with a spatula and set aside to dry.

Thanks for popping by today, I’ll list below the main products used.

More Sizzix Eileen Hull Shadow Boxes

I’m back to share some more shadow boxes ahead of my Sizzix shows on Create and Craft this Thursday and Friday. It’s a One Day Special, so I’ll be on at 6pm and 9pm on Thursday 19th, and 10am and 2pm on Friday 20th. Hope you can join me!

Of course, you don’t have to use die cuts with the shadow boxes, they are great for creating frames for your favourite stamped artwork. For this one I used one of the Miss Dee stamp sets by Aall & Create as I thought this one in particular worked really well with the dies.

Sizzix Eileen Hull Shadow Box dies on Create & Craft TV 19/20 May

Gosh I’m so excited for these shows. I have been so happy making all these projects. I have literally not left my craft studio the whole week I was making them except to eat and sleep!

So this is the Chapter 2 release from Eileen Hull, and unusually for her, this release doesn’t have any Bigz dies, there are 3 thinlit die sets, along with a stunning 3-D embossing folder called Crochet.

There are two sets that include the different size ‘sides’ to the shadow box. Shadow Box 1 allows you to create a small square frame, then Shadow Box 2 has a medium and large die, so you can create a landscape frame (as above). But of course, you can interchange the sizes, and say, just use the two longer sides of this one to create a larger square frame.

Then there’s a set called Shadow Box Elements that has some gorgeous little houses along with lots of other dies to decorate your frames. There are also extra elements in the frame sets.

I love the variety of elements in these sets, and the houses are just adorable. They are just as fabulous on cards as they are to create shadow boxes.

They also work so well with other die sets – for this square frame I used the largest shadowbox die and the Wild Blooms 1 die set.

I kind of replicated the project from the packaging photo for this one – it shows off all the little elements really nicely.

I’ve got lots more projects to share, so will pop back soon with more!

Studio Light Missees by Karin Joan

I’m back at Create and Craft this Friday 6 May with the new Missees release by Karin Joan. I just love these sets, it’s so much fun to put together characters, and it reminds me of making paper dolls as a child.

There are two sets of stamps that create these larger, full length characters, Angela and Katie.

There’s also a male set in this release called Eric.

Then some smaller girl characters, Sofia and Jasmine. All the sets have a lovely choice of accessories and outfits.

There are also two sentiment sets ‘Hi’ and ‘You’, which have a fabulous bold die set with shadow, and some matching stamps.

The shows are on Create and Craft on 6 May at 4pm and 7pm (but check the schedule as they do sometimes change or add extra shows)

Sizzix Eileen Hull Shadow Box dies

Eileen has some beautiful dies in this latest Chapter 2 release from Sizzix. I haven’t had a chance to play with them properly yet, but I do have shows on Create and Craft in May with them, so I’m looking forward to making lots more projects.

For today though, this is the first project I’ve made.

I used the Shadowbox Frames #1 die set together with the Crochet Mandala embossing folder, and the ‘home’ label is from the Shadowbox Elements set.

I went for a very simple colour scheme for this one. As it was my first time working out how to use the shadowbox dies, I used some cream card to cut the frame. (Creative Expressions Coconut White card).

It’s so simple to put together, you just cut the die four times, then fold on the score lines, and add red line tape to the tabs. It literally takes seconds.

I decided to cut a piece of the same card for a background, embossed with the embossing folder. That way it also looks really pretty from the back.

Then I decided to decorate with flowers and leaves from the set, sticking with a really muted colour scheme. I added three flowers to the centre – two are popped up on foam tape to give some dimension, then I added some of the leaves to the corner of the frame, along with some little dots of Tonic Nuvo Drops to look like little shiny pearls.

For the Home label, I used the elements from the Shadowbox Elements die set, and inlayed the letters back into the label in a pale pink. I just love the colour combo of the pale pink and kraft card.

I can’t wait to start playing with the larger shadow box now. Especially since Sizzix have some lovely new cardstock in muted tones – I think it’s going to work so well with these dies.

I’ve listed all the products below, thanks for stopping by.

Studio Light Jenine’s Mindful Collection – Write your Story

I’m back at Create and Craft TV tomorrow with a beautiful collection from Jenine at Studio Light. There’s a lot in this collection – papers, die cut elements, stencils, vellum, acetate, rub-ons, dies and stamps, all around the same vintage writing theme.

There’s so much in this collection, that if you go for the whole bundle, you will be making for months to come!

I think the style of these images lends itself to quite a romantic/shabby chic style, but really, it can work in many ways. If you like to add layers and mixed media you can, you can keep it simple with the dies and stamps if you like a more clean and simple look, and if you really want to make quick and easy cards you can use the paper pads and die cuts to create beautiful cards.

These are just some of the cards I’ve made, but please tune in for the shows for a better look because there is so much in this collection.

I’m on Create and Craft on Monday 25th and Tuesday 26th April, it’s a One Day Special so times are 6pm and 9pm on Monday, then 10am and 2pm on Tuesday.

I’ve also added some links below for CraftStash in the UK and Simon Says Stamp in the US who are also stocking this collection. If you’re in the UK, Craftstash do have some bundle deals here

Sizzix Tim Holtz Village Collection

I’m on Create and Craft TV today with this amazing collection of dies, so wanted to do a blog post so I can put all the relevant information here for those getting the dies.

So first things first. There are a lot of dies in the set (87!), so before you start making your village you will want to get these into some sort of order.

Zoe Hillman (who is one of the Makers on Tim Holtz’ team), came up with a great solution. Here is a link to her blog post with photos of her solution. She used some thick card covered with magnetic sheet for hers, I had some of the Sizzix magnetic storage sheets which are already really thick, I’ll put a link at the end of this post to the Sizzix solution in case you want a ready-made solution.

I’d suggest following Zoe’s format for how to group the dies because it’s really logical. Here are a few of my sheets:

I used a white Posca pen to add the names (as suggested by Zoe). All the dies are etched on the reverse with the names (except for the tiny ones), so it’s quite easy to work out where to put them.

So now you have your dies in a logical order, it’s time to start creating, and I have a few hints and tips to share. Firstly, the type of card to use. I used 270gsm kraft card for my houses, and I found that worked pretty well, as well as being a good base colour. A very helpful tip that I gleaned from Tim’s live – link here, is to use a small acrylic block with a straight edge to fold your crease lines against. I found that, especially with the kraft card which is quite fibrous, my crease lines didn’t crease straight without doing this, so it’s a very useful tip.

For die cutting, the Sizzix sticky grids will make your life so much easier so I’d highly recommend getting some. You can use masking tape to hold your dies in the same position but that’s not always guaranteed to hold them, and also the grid lines on the sticky grid really help make sure you have your window and doors straight.

The key thing here is to LEAVE your dies on the grid once you cut out your house. Then you can go back and cut again and know the windows will line up – so if say, you cut your house from kraft card, then want to add cladding to the house from embossed watercolour card (more on the embossing folders in a bit), then you can cut another die cut from watercolour card, snip off the tabs, then emboss, colour, then add to the house. As you can see, I actually used two cutting pads covered with grid so I could keep both houses on them.

In terms of best adhesives to use, I’d recommend a combination. I used red line tape for the tabs on the house itself, because those are quite easy to assemble. However, over time, any type of tape adhesive might come unstuck, and of course, if you are building a village, it’s likely to be something you plan to keep for a good few years, so where it’s easy to do so, I’d run a line of hot glue over the join (on the inside). Of course where you are adding layers of mediums or more card you will be strengthening the structure even more so there’s no reason why these shouldn’t hold up pretty well.

For window frames, cladding etc. I used a PVA glue, and for things like the chimney stacks where it was a little fiddly, I used hot glue. You definitely want a hot glue gun with a fine nozzle (like the Sizzix one), because you don’t want lumpy glue showing.

There are also 3 embossing folders designed to work well with this collection, and they are miniature versions of previous embossing folders – Brickwork, Lumber and Cobblestone.

The realistic look you get with these is just mind blowing. If you are embossing panels for your house, make sure you die cut the house first, then cut off the tabs, then emboss (if you emboss then cut out the house shape you will squash your embossing a bit).

There are a lot of different colour options you can use on them to get different looks. Zoe has a good tutorial on her blog for the brickwork that’s worth looking at here.

I should also mention that there is a ton of inspiration and help on the Sizzix blog – Josh and Pete have a downloadable ebook showing how they make all their amazing projects, plus the video from Tim is there along with a video by Josh showing all the projects in the ebook.

Here’s the link to the Sizzix inspiration page for the Village Collection

I’ve got links below to all the products in case you missed the shows or didn’t get the dies then.

Eileen Hull Wrapped Journal

The challenge theme this month on the Eileen Hull Fanclub Facebook group is Fibres, Fabric and Felt.

I made this wrapped journal a while back so thought I’d share the details (you may have seen it on my Create & Craft shows on Monday).

To create the base for the journal, I used some green mountboard/matboard (I know it’s called mountboard here in the UK, but usually matboard in the States).

I’m in the UK, and I got a huge A2 sized sheet in a lovely green shade from Hobbycraft. I thought the green would look nice on the inside and contrast nicely with the grey.

Before adhering my felt to the mountboard I used my die as a rough guide. I placed it on the grey felt and drew around it with a marker pen, just so I had a rough idea of how much felt I would need. I also put little marks to indicate where the creases would be – I wanted my circles to go off the edge on each panel to give a kind of seamless look, but I obviously wanted the crease lines to not be right on the edge of a circle so I wouldn’t be left with a tiny sliver of felt that might come unstuck.

Next step was to die cut some circles from green felt. I used iron on adhesive to add these to the grey felt, then stitched them on both to add some nice detail, and to make sure they didn’t come unstuck over time.

I then added double sided adhesive sheet to the mountboard and attached the felt. (With hindsight, I should have added iron on adhesive to the back of the felt as I have since discovered this really helps stop the felt fraying). So if you fancy giving this a go, I’d advise adding iron on to the felt in addition to the adhesive sheet on the mountboard.

I then placed it face down on the die and cut to create my lovely journal.

Before adding the elastic cord for the notebooks, I used a hole punch to add a small hole in the spine so I could thread some cord through for a closure. I added a button on the inside so it would be secure, then tied some pretty felt balls to the end.

I used 1.5mm white elastic to thread through each of the spines, then cut down some cheap notebooks to fit (these were from Morrison’s supermarket – whenever I see cheap notebooks there reduced, I buy tons of them!). It’s easy to cut them to size with a good knife and a steel ruler.

Create & Craft TV shows – Eileen Hull favourites

Well, I’m very excited about my shows on Monday – two shows of literally all my favourite things! It’s the Best of Eileen Hull, so a bit of a round up of all her best selling dies.

As you know, I’m a huge fan of her journals, and on the show we’ve got the Folio and Wrapped Journals, which I guess are probably the most versatile of all because they have fold around elements you can use or cut off to create different styles of journal.

So first is the Folio Journal. This one has a flap at the front and back of the journal that wraps around, then, there’s a separate element that enables you to enclose that piece, to create like a little box type element which is great if you want to add in separate notebooks, or maybe even a gift.

What I also like about the Folio is that it’s a nice square size, so it really gives a nice area to decorate, and works really well with the various 3-D embossing folders.

Next is the Wrapped Journal. This one also has a wrap around element, but it folds all the way round from the back, making this one ideal for using with leather/fabric, because it doesn’t necessarily need to be a rigid design.

Next is the very fun, Camper die, this creates such a cute 3D camper, that has a kind of box inside, that you can use to add a gift. Of course, you can also use the camper element without making it into the full 3D version, it looks fabulous on a card or journal front.

Another fun 3-D die, this is the Post Box. A great one for creating little savings boxes for kids, of perhaps for a wedding for guests to post little messages. Of course you can also use it as a fun gift box.

This is the Display Stand. It’s perfect for displaying a calendar, or photos, but on this sample I added some magnetic sheet, so I could use it to pop on my desk and hold my thin metal dies while I work.

The Vintage Button embossing folder and Floral Contours dies have been included on the shows because they work so well with the various journals and other dies.

Phew, that’s a round up of most of the items on the show – I told you it was a great mix of faves!

My shows are on the 21st March at 12.00 and 5pm, so I hope you can join me!

More All Occasions from Sizzix

I’m back with more sneak peeks ahead of my shows on Monday – I’m on Create and Craft at 9am and 1pm. This set is called Rainbow Magic, and I really like the style of this rainbow. So many ways to use it. Each piece cuts separately so you can use different colours or just cut from watercolour card and colour yourself.

Next up, this set is called Bottles and Glasses, it’s got a fun champagne bottle, along with different glasses, and accessories. I cut the glasses from vellum on these cards to create these fun cards.

This is the Big Hugs set, and Positive Signs stamp set.

Last for today, there are a couple of new embossing folders on the shows – both are 3D folders, Rainbow Sky and Celebrate.
