So cute

Hello! I hope you are doing well. Here we are expecting spring but nothing seems it's already there. In fact the weather is more like we are expecting Christmas than Easter....
Here is my last layout. I couldn't resist to use once again the Sizzix Framelits Die Set 3PK - Frame because  it has a great shape and you can really use it in many many ways and always gives that romantic touch. In this case I cut out some patterned paper, distressed it and cover it with the clear crackle paint. I stamped the border of the layout with the stamps that are included in the Sizzix Framelits Die Set 7PK w/Stamps - Flowers, Lovely set. I just love these stamps!



Above some details of the layout....



 Please go to the Sizzix place and check the marvelous products and get some inspiration from their blog!

See you soon!

Foil Easter Eggs

Here I am with a new Easter idea for you. It's not only for creating new eggs but also a simple way to dress some odl eggs in a new way. I decided to use foil inspired by the surprise eggs that are wrapped in foil. There are some tips to follow to get this vintage look and apply the foil but in the end it turned out as I wished.
I used the Night Sky Glimmer Glam and the Dragonfly Glimmer mist for giving a nice color to the two eggs. From the Sizzix pantry I made some die cuts using the Sizzix Bigz Die - Hardware Findings  and the Sizzix Movers & Shapers Magnetic Die Set 2PK - Mini Bunny & Bow Set and applied some pieces to each of the eggs. I love these die cuts - a million ways of uses!!!!



 

 Each egg is wrapped in a cord net ...



 The foil eggs are also raughly stamped ...

My eggs are already decorating my kitchen :-) See you soon for the next idea!

Bunny Boy

Here I am, back with a new LO that is also easter scented. I had this picture of my boy with one of our bunnies and it was just perfect for this time of the year and offfered me a lot of inspiration. So, after quite a while, here is a LO. 
I decided to use the Sizzix Framelits Die Set 3PK - Frame, Damask for the background but instead to use it a s a frame I've cut it and use it as a background line and the rounded parts were perfect to protect the clock's. I decided to added clocks to this LO just to have a tiny Alice in Wonderland ingredient because my son and me love that movie. I also used the Sizzix Framelits Die Set 6PK w/Stamps - Banners for the title support. I love these banners bacause the package is a combination of die cuts and stamps. I inked those stamps and before pressing them down I wiped off the ink from the centre to get a vintage used look.

I cut out some bunny ears and glue them on the letter "B".


Now we have just to wait for Easter to come :-)

Butterfly Egg

Hello everyone! I'm back after quite a while. The reason is that we are fighting at home with various viruses and I really hope that it's over with all the chikenpox, flus, ecc. Maybe the upcoming spring is what we  need!!! I'm caling her also with this my new project - a Butterfly Egg.
I covered the egg with a lot of butterflies and using the Sizzix Movers & Shapers Magnetic Die Set 2PK - Mini Butterflies Set. It's easy to get a lot of them in just some moments because the Sizzix machine and the dies allows to cut 3 pieces at once. I used about 80 butterflies to cover tha whole egg.



 I stamped the flowers with the stamps you'll find in the Sizzix Framelits Die Set 7PK w/Stamps - Flowers, Lovely.  These stamps are perfect to make any poaper flower more intresting.



The top of the egg is the perfect place for the biggest butterfly the is made with the  Sizzix Sizzlits Die - Butterfly   distressed and covered with cracle paint.
