Now I have to tell you, this latest collection is probably the most versatile ever!!! It will consist  of 3 Score Boards Dies and 3 sets of Thinlits. Each die works with the others and the components can also work with dies from other collections, such as the Journal and Passport Book.
Each die may be used in so many ways- on books, cards, gift boxes, home decor projects, and for storage and organization.
Imagine a die that can create a box, a book and a frame all on one die- we have that!

Sizzix Maker Challenge – Is it a House, a Pocket or a Flag!!

hello everyone!

I am back today to share with you a different way to use the Eileen Hull House/Pocket Stitchlit (https://www NULL.sizzix NULL.com/661902/sizzix-thinlits-die-set-9pk-house-pocket-stitchlits)

I originally created my original project with this die as a banner and ever since then I have been thinking about a specific project and well this is the time to share it here with you!

in today’s world of social media it is so easy to request someone to share a prayer, a positive thought, sending a bit of light etc. and every time I see this I do a silent send their way and that is what got me thinking and creating

so i proceeded to cut out some house’s using the house/pocket stitchlit and in the way i folded it it turns out that i end up with a different type of banner bit that can be used!!

See you always need to be on the lookout for those extra ways right!

i took each one and folded down the top portion and sewed straight across the top in order to create a little pocket for a string to go through so i can hang these outside in the breeze.

next i placed the bits one at  a time into my stamping platform and sometimes using the initials and sometimes the first name of the individuals, i stamped using some paint.

I then just added various stamps on the flags and then strung them up outside.

here are a few of  the flags i want to share with you and hope it encourages you to look outside of what your die was created for and to what it can be used for as a bonus!

thanks for stopping by today! don’t forget that Sizzix has a Makers Challenge happening this month using Eileen’s Heartfelt collection. just click on this picture and it will take you there for all the details

Eileen Hull – Pocket House = Chore holder

hello everyone!

today i am here to share with you a quick and easy project you can create using the Eileen Hull pocket house (https://www NULL.sizzix NULL.com/661902/sizzix-thinlits-die-set-9pk-house-pocket-stitchlits) die!!

i am always looking for ways to use my dies in a different way and this is what i came up with this time!!   here is basically what i did.

  •  place a piece of fabric onto a piece of double sided adhesive.
  • cover a sheet of mat board (https://www NULL.sizzix NULL.com/656491/sizzix-little-sizzles-6-x-13-mat-board-pack-6-cream-sheets)with double sided adhesive and cover with felt
  • die cut a house out of the fabric and two out of the felt/mat board
  • die cut one piece of mat board from the 3D die
  • using a strong adhesive place all together and decorate

i then just put together some tags which i had die cut and decorated with various chores on the back.    your child (or spouse LOL) can then just chose a tag each day/week and do assigned chores!

just one of so many ways this versatile die can be used!!!

and did you know that there is a new Maker Challenge happening over at Sizzix!!!!  I hope you get the chance to join in with this fabulous challenge. there are some fabulous prizes on offer.  just click on this photo for the direct link!

i hope you have a chance to play along or to even just play!!

Eileen Hull heart and soul meets powertex!

Hello everyone!!

today I am here to show you a project I created for Eileen Hull (http://www NULL.eileenhull NULL.com/)Inspiration team  using the heart and soul die  (http://www NULL.sizzix NULL.com/661108/sizzix-bigz-die-flower-heart-soul) and spring leaves (http://www NULL.sizzix NULL.com/661111/sizzix-bigz-die-leaves-spring)die but it is not your typical project…

I had taken a powertex class from the wonderful Cheryl Bogliali in 2016 at a  local retreat and fell in love with the product but alas didn’t really do much with it again until  I sat down with my sister and created our figurines …..  but the itch to create was still quite strong.   so when Eileen challenged her inspiration team this month to create using her dies in a different way …. well out came my powertex and Kunin felt  and well here is what I did

I started off by die cutting the flower and leaves out of Kunin felt. I opted to use the darker colours as I wasn’t sure how this project would turn out. I then soaked them in powertex making sure the felt was completely saturated

I then attached it to a bottle using some cotton and let it set for a very long time to dry…….  once it was completely dry I set out to add a bit of shimmer, a few stones and a dragonfly brad and this is what I came up with

a simple little wine cuff to attach to a bottle to add that little extra touch to a gift!

how do you use your Eileen Hull dies in a different way!!! do share with us and let us know!
