Create a Fun House with Sizzix



So I got this idea for a fun house in the middle of the night.  Because that always makes sense!

I am celebrating the holidays with the Eileen Hull Inspiration Team.  And yes, Halloween to me is a holiday!  Here's how it went down... My cat Flurry wanted to hang out for a some cuddles and purring.  Of course it was 3:30AM.  That's when I got this idea... a Fun House with the Canister (shhhh... it's been retired) die.  


I cut mat board for the canister and spritzed with Black Soot.  Covered with Halloween Paper and then snapped my Skeleton.

Wrap up the lights and stuff to the bottom!
"Tickets Please"



A few snaps and I can pose my guy.  Check out the wall paper and photo's behind him.


A spider or 2...



Using the Alphanumeric Marquee for the glitter paper works!






Ephemera... why not



A nicely hidden battery pack for the lights.



Boo



Corrugated roof


WHAT.... CREEPY at night too!

I hope you had fun checking this Fun House Ticket Taker out!  Hanging out in this clever little Ticket Booth ready to take payment.  Now that's a different take on the Canister die!

Stop by to see what the Inspiration Team has been whipping up all month!

  1. Nicole, this is utterly brilliant! I am in love with it. So glad you also end up crafting at 3:30 in the morning. May I ask where the marquee letters come from?

  2. Dang girl, I dig your style! I'm glad I caught the Eilleen Hull bug a few years ago, ever since, I've been adding her dies to my collection, most of them I caught before they retired! Phew. Where did you find that little Skeleton?! I want that candy corn tree!!! I bet your daughter loves it!!!

    1. I agree, I love Eileen's dies! I caught the bug and started designing for her a few months later! I think she was tired of me stalking her!

      The skeletons are the best! I get them from Michaels.

Journaling Tuck Spots and Pockets

It is official... I am addicted to Journaling.  This is an inspiration post... why?  I may have become lost in my creativity... it happens.
Scroll through the the photos for ideas.  I have been inspired by my fellow journalers too.  
I kept the cover of Eileen Hull's new Journalsimple with a flipped cabinet card and some crackle paste stenciling.

Inside there are pages of Memoranda paper and Idea-Ology from Scrap ShotzMarch Scrapbook Kit.

A mini book stuffed in a pocket too.

Nicole Wright Designs Fallen Blossomis used on the tag, stamped and watercolored with worn lipstick oxide ink.

I used pages from my 115 year old art journal to create another mini.  Stamping and watercoloring throughout each page with Garden Flower and my stamp set Fallen Blossom.

Tuck spots and pockets for stuffing notes.  

The March Kit with the new Memoranda paper is perfect on it's own.  But I still cut it up and collaged with it.

I fussy cut a found relative since I am still trying to get my hands on …

Blending with DecoArt Media

Wildflowers

I may live in a snow globe but I can dream of Wildflowers!  
Just dusting off the cobwebs on my blog.  I try to take a creative break or slowdown during Jan/ Feb.  However, I have been creating still!  So, I did just get Sizzix shipment with some new goodies including the new Wildflowers 2!

I have all the floral dies but the wildflowers are my thing!  I love them.  I started cutting the Wildflowers,Wildflowers 2 and the new Small Tattered Florals.  All the flowers are inked with Magenta Nuance Pigment Powders.

The Small Tattered Florals are so teeny!  I just found a set of Stylus Tools... it came in a 3 pack and I wasn't sure if I need 3 but YA I do!  Spray and roll!
Look how the smallest floral rolls with the smallest stylus tool.  SCORE!  Embossing time.

I also got the new Flourish Texture Fadeand it is awesome. For inking I used Eileen Hull Colorbox Color Blends.  Creating strips of color with the built in sponge and blending with my blending pen.

This Watering Can is so adora…
