Hi everyone! I’m excited to be posting over on Lori Whitlock’s blog today to share some fun projects using her Sizzix dies. As you know, Lori designs fabulous cutting files for our digital cutting machines, and creates beautiful paper collections for Echo Park. She also designs wonderful dies for Sizzix! For crafters who don’t have a digital cutting machine, or who want to cut heavier materials like chipboard, these are so much fun!
I used several different dies and stamps to create a sweet tea party set for a little girl. I’ve added links below so you can get all of the details. The papers and embellishments are from the Petticoats collection that Lori designed for Echo Park.
Before you can have a tea party, you have to invite some friends. I used Lori’s Sizzix Bigz Teapot die to create my invitation. To create a card, I folded my white card stock and cut the shape out with my fold positioned to the right of the handle’s cut line. This prevented that area of the handle from cutting and allowed the fold to stay in tact. I then cut two more teapots to add to the front, and inside, of the card.
I created a thank-you card using several of the dies and a stamp from the Jar and Teapot Framelit set and finished my set with a cute little mini album. The Cupcake #2 Bigz die was perfect for this since I wanted to cut several pieces of thick chipboard. After cutting the cupcake out of pattern paper also, I glued the page pieces together and punched a hole in one side for a binding ring. A little ribbon and a lot of enamel dots finished off my mini in no time.
I hope you visit some of the links I’ve included to learn more about Lori’s wonderful designs over at Sizzix.com, and stop by my shop at Artsy Albums sometime to check out our new mini album and page layout kit releases!
