saying goodbye to 2014

i so can not believe that we are looking at 2015… it has been a great year and i am so thankful for all i have learned, all those i have met (in person and on line), and all that i have accomplished.
i just wanted to take a few minutes to post the tags i created for the last class of the year.












as always one of my favourite classes of the year.

i cherish you all… see you in the new year


‘boxed’ gift!!

hello everyone. i am here to show you a quick and easy way to ‘wrap’ a gift with love

i started out using a die from Vintage Kitchen line by Eileen Hull (http://www NULL.eileenhull, the cookie box (http://www NULL.sizzix
i also cut out an extra piece using the mirrored (http://www NULL.inspirationemporium NULL.HTML) sheet to which i added some specifically chosen words from remnant rubs (http://www NULL.inspirationemporium NULL.HTML) for that special someone


to decorate the cookie box i had run it through my vagabond using a texture fade (http://www NULL.inspirationemporium NULL.html) embossing folder.
i then used my distress ink pads, the winter collection, directly to the mat board. i then spritzed to blend the colours.
i repeated this technique onto my crinkle ribbon



i painted the insides of the lids using the silver paint and then inked the edges using vintage photo before putting it all together.



how cute is that for a quick and easy Christmas gift holder!!

there are so very many things to do with this die…do take a moment and jump on through Eileen’s site to see what the other Inspiration Team members have created so far with it.

i have linked this up to the ‘anything goes’ challenge over at simon says (http://www NULL.simonsaysstampblog monday challenge!!


Vintage Kitchen recipes

hello there!! i am here to showcase the Vintage Kitchen line by Eileen Hull. You can check out the entire Vintage Kitchen Sizzix collection HERE (http://www NULL.sizzix as well as see my original post showing my sneak peaks here

Well with this month’s  Art with Heart (http://www NULL.eileenhull NULL.html) challenge theme being Favorite Recipes, and since we are getting so much closer to the release date, we have been asked to show you how these dies can be used.

I started out creating this little vintage oven. i just knew when i started it it had to be teal and it had to be enamelled.  i started out by painting the whole thing then once dry i created the back white portion using Rangers enamel accents. i then proceeded to coat with embossing ink and heat setting UTEE until the whole oven was coated. when working the top of the oven i dropped the ‘elements’ into the hot UTEE. the oven handle was a quick idea using a label pull which i bent over the oven door. to finish off this project i used some left over mat board which i shaped into a mini book and enamelled to make the glass front in the door

for my next project i was given the loaf pan die cut. so when is a loaf pan not a loaf pan…. when it is a pincushion!!

i started off by running it through my vagabond using the measuring embossing folder. i then covered the whole thing using distress inks, sanded and then using Archival ink i hit all hit spots to darken. i then coated the whole thing with gel medium because i wanted to be able to handle it for years to come.

and last but not least here is my take using the canister
for the canister i stared off  cutting out the heart on what was to be the front and back of my canister. i then used various stencils and art anthology velvets and stone effects along with a couple of stamps and sandcastle coloration to complete the outside of my project

absolutely loved  the different dimensions this gave in both texture and sight. i wish you could touch it!

to finish off my canister i added some idea-ology pieces to the lid and bottom to create legs. inside is a battery operated tea light







i hope you enjoyed my little review and had the opportunity to catch Eileen when she was on the paper trail.i also hope you have taken the opportunity this month to not only view all the pieces created by the design team but play along with Art with Heart Challenge!!

you never know when one of these may end up coming to live with you for you to create your very own!
