Sizzix Flowers and Crepe paper

I’m back at Create and Craft for the next couple of days launching these fabulous flower dies and crepe paper collection. I’ve never really made crepe paper flowers before and was really surprised how easy they were, and how much you can shape the crepe paper to create really realistic petals. It’s obviously personal preference as to how many of each petal layer you cut, and how you shape them, but I thought it might be helpful for anyone buying these if I list out exactly how I put mine together, then you can use that as a starting point.

Fringed Tulip

For the Fringed Tulips, I used – 3 of the centre pieces, 1 of each petal, 2 leaves. This is one of the easiest to put together.

California Poppy

For the California Poppy I used; 1 each of all of the dies. Again this is a very simple one to put together.

Wild Peony

For the Wild Peony, I used; 4 of the fringe die, 4 of the double petal die, 6-8 of the small petal, and 6 of the large petal.

Carnation

For the Carnation I used; 4 of the strip die, 10 individual petals 1 green piece for the bottom, 1 or 2 leaves.

Classic Rose

For the Classic Rose I used; 4-6 of the smallest petal, 8 medium petals, 10 large petals, then the green piece for the bottom and the 2 leaves.

Ranunculus

For the Ranunculus I used; 6 of the small ovals, 10 of the medium and 15 of the large ovals, one green piece for the bottom and 1 or 2 leaves. I would say this flower is the most difficult and time consuming, as you do need to shape the petals in a nice cup shape the get a realistic flower, and this one also used the most petals, so takes a little longer. Saying that, I think this one is my favourite of them all.

I do plan to do a video later this week after the shows to demonstrate properly how to shape the petals, cover the beads etc., so hopefully that video will be ready by the time you get your dies if you order them from the show 🙂

New Sizzix Effectz range of paints and mediums

This week is very exciting, both Pete and I have shows on Create and Craft TV launching the new Effectz range of creamy acrylic paints, foils, pastes and waxes. So many exciting possibilities with these new goodies.

I do plan to do a video run through of all the new products, I’ve linked them all at the end of this post. I probably won’t get time to film it until next week though as I’m at Create and Craft on Wed, Thursday and Sunday.

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.

More sneak peeks ahead of my Create & Craft shows

I’m really glad to have the Spring Foliage die set on the shows – it’s one of my favourite die sets. I really like the flexibility you have with it, since you cut the leaves four times to create a full wreath, so you can use them individually to get different looks.

As we have a great deal on the Big Shot Plus, we’ve added a couple of the Bigz Plus dies. The Gift Bag die is one of my most used – you probably recognise it as I often use it in my show samples as I try to do other things that cards.

It’s a really useful little bag – I often use it for gift cards too.

Hope you can join me for the shows!

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.
