Die D'lites are my favorites

Today i have a post to share of something i did up on the Spellbinders blog awhile back.  
They carry lots of these cute little dies called Die D'lites and i was playing with some one
day and it was neat because they fit perfect inside of these little tray spaces.  And so it began..

I started by picking some of my favorite photos for some of the spaces and then
picked papers from Teresa Collins set with lots of happy yellows, white, grey and
just a tough of black.  I layered lots of the pieces and tried to make something fun that went
with the Home Sweet Home theme in each rectangle and it was really fun to make.  These are
 so good for digging in your stash and using up all the bits and pieces that can go with another
project that you are doing.  And you use up lots of things so you can go buy more right?

Here is a quick closeup of the title and the pretty Spellbinders die that i used.  Love, love
love this one like all the others and the detail is always amazing. 

Thanks so much for stopping over today and be sure and stop over
again to see what's new on my side of the continent!!

Cute little chipboard pin...

Today i have another Spellbinders project to share with you all that i did a long while back--
it was one of my favorite things that i made so i thought i would bring it back out again to
share and maybe give you a little inspiration for make jewelry with the dies.

This is actually pretty small, it's only about 4" x 4" but it was really fun to do with a little 
paper and bling and it started me back on making jewelry again. 

The pieces for the base are chipboard from Want2Scrap that match the Spellbinders dies
 and i painted them white and then cut a few more pieces to go with it like the top one from thin chipboard i had in my stash.  The flower i made from Donna Salazars rose die and added 
some bling and a bit of tulle.  Oh and a few pearl drops all around it.  
And then to finished it i sprinkled on some chunky glitter and that was all it needed.

I hope you like it and thanks for stopping by today for another quick idea!  

Big Hugs and Smiles.... Teresa

Decorative Vase to share with you...

It's monday and time for another share of one of Stacy's new dies.  She has some brand new
band type dies that you can use for all kinds of projects and this one i really loved and made
a band that ties on the sides around a vase that i picked up at IKEA.

This die is called "Art Deco Arched Diamond" and has really gorgeous details in it.  I inked
the die with embossing ink while the paper was in the die and then added that pretty red
glitter embossing powder to it.  Then i took away the die and embossed it and this is how
it came out.  I made two of them and tied both sides with ribbon to attach it to the glass.

These would be so gorgeous on a table centerpiece for a wedding or even for
a special party that you are throwing.  It's really, really gorgeous and very easy to do.

So thanks again for stopping and i have more to share this week so hope you
can stop over again... Love, love, love these new dies!!

Art Savoy Die Set

To end the week i am sharing one of my most favorite sets that i did with one of my favorite new dies.  This one fit a box that i already had in my stash perfectly so i went ahead and made a card to got with it too. I used just pinks again and ribbon to match so it went together really easy.

The die set for this one is called Art Deco Savoy Decorative Elements and was designed by the 
amazing Stacey Caron herself.  This one has the most beautiful and intricate embossing and debossing in it and i really tried to layer the papers on it to make it stand out.  The dies in her new
sets are so gorgeous and each one has such amazing detail in them of the Art Deco period.

For the box i did a quick wrap around the base and covered the top and sides with layers 
of the dies and some small bits of ribbon that i had in my stash.  This one i can't wait to 
give out for something special.  

Be sure and check out Stacey Carons's other new dies that came out on the website and be sure
and check back again for more from her new collection from me :)  Have a very
wonderful and crafty day and thanks so much for stopping by to see what is new with me.

Wedding Invitation to share today...

Today i have another quick post to share with you using another of the Becca Feeken
dies from Spellbinders that i love.  This one is a beautiful pocket die and i did a 
very special and old fashioned wedding invite with it.  

The die is called "Cascading Grace Pocket Etched Die set" and you can get it over
on the Spellbinders website super easy.  I wanted to really make the intricate designs
pop on this so i kept it really simple to make and used only pink and white cardstock.  

For the invite i created a fold over card with the top piece of the die in white and that way
i can put information about the wedding inside of the card.  And inside i just did an embossed
pocket without cutting it and used that to layer in the reception cards and directions.

I hope you like it and be sure and check out Becca's other dies here.  You will love them!!

Spellbinders Favorites to share

Recently we were given the go ahead from Spellbinders to share a few of the things that we did for them.  And after 4 years of amazing craftiness i have lots of favorites to put up to share.  Every Tuesday i will share a few things and the dies i used to create them.  Stacey was such an incredible person to be able to work for and i was lucky enough to be picked by them so i think this will be fun.

Some of my most favorite dies in the world are designed by Becca Feeken.  She has an incredible way of designing and creating beautiful things with her dies so it's a little stressful when i set out to make something with them but i think i did ok with this set.  This one is on the website right now I think and since we were always challenged to think outside the box i went for a vellum lantern for this one.

I love the intricate embossing and to make the debossing on the pattern stand out i added a bit of ink to that part of the die while it was still in it.  The corners for this one are the leftover pieces from the inside center of the die.  I cut them in half and then again.  Then i scored them and folded them to reinforce the edges and to glue on the side pieces.  The bottom is another die that i chose because the edges just went perfectly with all of it.  And it looks so pretty with an electric candle inside.

For my frame i used the same die and inking on it but added the center piece with a beautiful sentiment.  I can't say enough about her dies and how gorgeous they can make something look.  Simple paper becomes something amazing just by cutting it with one of her dies.

And lastly this one is a bridal shower card.  I layered the dies in subtle colors of aqua and added some pretty ribbon to match and also a few clear rhinestones.  I really, really love the way this one came out.  And it was fun to make so that makes it even better.

To see more of Becca's dies you can visit here on the SB website.

Thanks for stopping over and be sure and check back again next Tuesday!!

Time for the Craft Hoarders April Hop...

It's time again for the Craft Hoarders Hop and i have a fun project to share that i did for one
of my bosses at work.  I used to teach these fun little mini books at the store and i found a
bunch of things that i had from one of them so i added a few more stickers and came
up with the Disney Flip book for lots of pictures of the people who work for him.

Here is the front page of the folder.  I used Simple Stories papers and layered them with
a few stickers that i had in my stash.  The folder is also from my stash and the yellowish
color worked perfect for the base of it. It is smaller too than the regular file folders so it
went together pretty quick.

And here is a closeup of the front... If you work for Disney you totally get the part
about the Magic.  It's the most amazing place to work and you meet so many incredible
families from all around the world... i am pretty lucky to be able to work there.

Inside is lots of other mini folders to put photos and fun stories in.  My manager
has been there for over 15 years now and I am sure this will barely cover any of it.  
Guess i will have to make him part 2 when i get a chance :)

And here is another part of one of the folders.  I love to chop up the papers and
mix them and layer them.  You never know what you can create.

And lastly i used a trifold card for some of the insides to give me more space
for the pictures.  And then i added a few of the cards that come in the sets and also
added some punched Mickey's in black from an old punch in my stash.

I hope that you enjoyed my share today and be sure and hop on over to Barbara's 
blog to see what she has to share with you today!! And if you just started here
is the links for all of us today so you can start at the beginning!

Have a very wonderful and creative day!!
