Sizzix mixed media shows with Lisa Jones Botanicals

I’ve got a very busy week of shows this week. Both on Create & Craft UK and US.

First up, I’m on Create & Craft US on Wednesday with a bit of a Sizzix takeover. There are 4 shows back to back, two will be mixed media shows with these gorgeous Lisa Jones botanical dies, then I’ve got 2 shows with the brand new Effectz range of paints and mediums. Check out the website for timings as I know they’ll be different depending on which time zone you are. For UK viewers that might want to watch them, you can watch if you go to http://www.createandcraft.com/us. I’m on from 9pm to midnight our time.

The UK shows are as follows – double Mixed Media show with these gorgeous Botanical dies (and the new Tim Holtz Colorize sets called Under the Sea) on Thursday at midday, then Pete takes over with the launch of the new Effectz range. He’s there Thurs/Fri/Sat, then I’m back on Sunday at 14.15 with my take on the Effectz range. I’ll share my projects with those in a separate blog post.

So it’s a very busy week on C&C for Sizzix!

Sizzix Lisa Jones collection – Mother’s Day cards

Well I wasn’t struggling for inspiration this year when it came to make my Mother’s Day cards – it was the perfect excuse to make some more cards with the new Lisa Jones collection. My mum is from London, and my mother-in-law is from Birmingham, hence the different spellings of mum on my cards!

Sizzix Lisa Jones Botanical collection

I’m back at Create & Craft TV tomorrow with an absolutely stunning collection of dies, papers and washi tape, all with a lovely wild bloom theme. I will share photos of all my projects (there’s a lot, and I feel I’ve barely scratched the surface of what you can do with this collection).

There’s a fabulous Serif Alphabet in the collection, and as each letter is approx 3.5cm high, it’s perfect for home decor projects.

Isn’t the colour palette beautiful? There’s a pack of plain card, plus a patterned paper pack as well as washi tape, all co-ordinating.

There’s a die set to create both frames and that lovely delicate border you see – so it works really well to add a pop of metallic or a bolder colour, and there are circles and rectangles that can be framed with the various floral elements.

If you know me well, you know I have a thing for wreath designs, so this one is my new favourite thing. I coloured this one with some oxide inks to give it a really nice blue/green kind of eucalyptus feel.

Create & Craft TV shows next week

I’m back at Create and Craft next week (Tue 9th and Wed 10th), with a fabulous deal on the Big Shot Plus, along with some gorgeous dies. Since we are showcasing the Plus machine, we’ve got a couple of the Bigz Plus dies, one of which, this Hanging Wreath die, is one I hadn’t used before. I’m really loving it. I quite often buy chipboard wreath shapes for creating with, so I’m delighted that I can save money and just cut my own from now on.

The peach flowers are part of the wreath die, and the large flower is another die we have on the shows called Icelandic Poppy. I cut them all from the Sizzix floral foam.

I didn’t want to waste the piece that popped out of the centre of the wreath, so I used that as a little plaque.

Which brings me along nicely to the next die set on the show – the Feathered Friends set by Tim Holtz.

My shows are at midday on the 9th (double show), and 14.15 on the 10th.

Sizzix Eileen Hull new releases

There are some lovely new dies in the Sizzix Chapter One release, and Eileen Hull has a really fabulous new journal die. It’s called the Folio Journal, and it creates a lovely square journal with lots of options to configure it in different ways.

As it’s easier to see in real life than photos, I’ve put together a couple of videos. The first is an overview and shows you her new dies, and the second video is an in-depth tutorial to make the journal above.

So here’s the first video

The second video is here

I just love the versatility you get with this die, and I think it’s going to get a lot of use this year!
