Art with Heart Challenge; Projects to Love

I am back from my 2 week holiday and couldn't wait to create!  I missed all my crafty things, blogging and blogger peeps!  Here's a little something I whipped up to get me back into my craft room!
 
I know Valentines has passed and the chocolates have been snarfed.  However, the Art with Heart Challenge is all month long.  The Eileen Hull Inspiration Team is sharing their awesome projects with you each week! 
This month the Cookie Box die is looking for a new home.  So I decided to use my Cookie Box die and show you how I used it.
 
 
Did you know you can stack this die!  I cut the mat board 2 times so I could stack.  This die comes with a hinge so you can create this mega Cookie Box.
 
 
 
You can see here I stacked one on top of the other.

 
I had to decide the topper...Festive Gent or... Layered Butterfly!  Decisions...

 
I just got the mini paper rosette die from The Funkie Junkie Boutique and I LOVE IT!  I just had to add some.

 
Ohhh distress glitter how I love thee... In Festive Berries, Spun Sugar and Picked Raspberry.  The Festive Gent is in Black Soot distress glitter.

 
 I attached the smaller mini rosette to the front.

 
Hey...who ate the Caramel Kisses!

 
I inked and decorated the inside of the cookie box die.
 
 
I filled the Cookie Box die with Kisses!
 
 
I added some tattered pinecone roses to the inside lid.  Then attached some twine to help with the weight.
 
 
I love all the layers, glitter and mini rosettes!

 
Make sure to enter this months Art with Heart Challenge and you could be the winner!
 
 
 Thanks for stopping by!  I so appreciated all the lovely comments on my posts while I was away.  Welcome to the new stalkers!

Grinch

I am so excited to share this Tutorial with you!  This is a tutorial on how to "draw" an image to scale!  How to take a small image and make it life size using a grid pattern.  I'm sure if you are on Pinterest like I am you've seen The Grinch stealing Christmas lights.  I looked for a tutorial on how to make my own but I couldn't find one.  Not to say someone hasn't created a tutorial.  So, I decided to create my own.  With the help of my husband who created the Grid pattern for me to make these characters come to life.  Much like he did for my daughter's Union Jack Headboard.  Keep in mind, this is NOT A COPY of The Grinch.  Before you consider purchasing the class...you will have to DRAW him yourself.  In this class you'll be shown how to grid a print out and grid your plywood so you can "DRAW BY NUMBER" if you will.  Even if you can't draw... you can draw the lines in each grid connecting them to the next grid.  I can draw but not s…

New Release- Stamp and Photo Storage

All month the Inspiration Team for Eileen Hull is thrilled to be showing off the her newest Book Club Collection.  Here's my little glimpse at the Stamp and Photo Storagedie.  There is nothing this decent size die can't do... or hold!  In this case Letter's to Santa.  I even combined the Trinket Box & Frame to frame out Santa.


I stamped the Woodland Winter Santa designed by yours truly onto watercolor paper and used my Scribble sticks to add a little color.
I cut a piece of clear packaging and ran it through my little Xyron Disposable Sticker Makerto create a cover for my Santa.  Perfection!

I colored up the Floral Arch and Words arch to attach to the bottom and top and attached.  I used some Distress Woodgrain Cardstock to wrap my Stamp and Photo Storage. I cut Super StockCardstock to fit inside.  Inking and stamping like crazy all tied off with some postal twine.  The Correspondence Stamp Set is perfect.


I mounted the Trinket Box & Frame to the Stamp and Storage…

Pumpkin Parts Thanksgiving w/ Xyron

While my Thanksgiving may be over it is coming soon south of the border.

Xyronis getting ready for holiday season and what better way then with the Pumpkin Parts die cut.  This easy card is layered with paper and ink to create a festive pumpkin card.  The team will be sharing their fall inspired projects all week so be sure to pop by for lots of inspiration.



The Create a Sticker is great for all the smaller pieces to layer and quickly put together.  For a quick background stamp the craft sheet with Distress Oxides, spray and drag.
I cut Thanksgiving from the Sentiment Words Thinlit and attached with the Sticker Maker.Fall Foliage has this little hay die cut that I added to the bottom of the pumpkin attached the Xyron Mega Runner.
I clipped a couple of the Twisted pieces for a little green for the top of the pumpkin.





Don't miss any of the inspiration with the rest of the Xyron Team.
