Homemade...Quick and Easy

Thursday, December 11, 2014

Whew! It's hard to believe that the Christmas will be here SOON!
It's been an unusually hectic season so far and I've found myself having to cut back on a lot of activities this year. The one thing that I won't cut back on this time of year, is crafting. I love playing with paper and glue! So...I am so excited to introduce a few new items from Eileen Hull's Vintage Kitchen line. To create this coffee mug gift-card holder, I used the new Sizzix Bigz die, Mug & Spoon. I also used the new Sizzix Scoreboards XL Die Box Make-it-3-D.

The Make-it-3-D die is the incredibly awesome. You can use ANY of your existing dies and turn them into a 3-D project. I love this! This gift-card holder was simple to make. I up-cycled an old page from a children s book to use.
I love that I can make the mug dimensional!

Later this month I'll share a few more Vintage Kitchen projects I've got planned. 

I'm going to have fun with my Sizzix this season!

  15. Using vintage photos from books is a great idea, even though I do hate tearing up books! It goes against my English major background. But it's fun to give them new life in such great projects like this! I love that cork snowflake - genius!
