Iris made this shabby chic vintage themed album from scraps of thick boards. She used the Distressed Doily Edge die to form a doily top for the front and back covers of her album and added chipboard pieces for the inside pages which were cut using the movers and shapers dies.
The cover was coated in thick gesso and structuring medium and was embossed with white and gold flakes. A Hambly overlay was placed on top of the cover and was then finally embellished with Prima flowers and trinkets.
Chris cut a seperate piece of the Key Lime cardstock with the Sizzix Framelits - Die Set Fancy Labels and then attached it underneath the gorgeous glittery American Craft papers to create this shaped card. She embossed the base of the card using the Sizzix Textured Impressions flower rings and clusters folder and stamped one of her old favourites, Hero Arts Old French Writing, onto the Sizzix butterfly die cut.
Chris has used the larges die from the Sizzix Fancy Labels die set to create this fabulously shaped card. She has featured the Sizzlits Single Die - Flower & Leaf #3 as well as some gorgeous bling.
Chris has used the Sizzix Impressions embossing folders to create such wonderful texture on this card. She also embossed the Sizzix Single die butterfly for extra effect. The Hero Arts Very Special Birthday stamp has been stamped onto cardstock cut with the Sizzix Framelits - Die Set Fancy Labels. For an extra big of bling Chris has used the new American Crafts white glitter tape.
Anna-Karin Evaldsson has been doing arts and crafts her whole life, but papercrafting is the one that has totally captured her heart and mind. She started making cards in 2002 and then progressed to scrapbooking two years later.
Some info about the project: Anna-Karin had so much fun building this little house, which is inspired by a typically Swedish wooden red house with white corners. She used the Sizzix ScoreBoards House die, by Eileen Hull, for the house and it was die-cut from mat board, which is really fun to work with. It was inked and stamped to get a faux-woodgrain effect and the roofs were dry embossed and inked for texture. She also used the Scallops On the Edge die for the roof, the Hearts Set Movers & Shapers for the little canvas hearts, the Branch Tree Bigz die for the canvas branch on the roof, and the Gridlock texture fade to dry emboss the roofs. There is a step-by-step tutorial for how she made the house on her blog.

We are so lucky to have the above fabulous creations by Vivian Keh.
Vivian was kind as to write us a few words about Sizzix dies. "Here are my feelings about Sizzix, in particular Bigz dies... I'm always on the lookout for Sizzix Bigz dies. They cut through just about anything - cardstock, chipboard, felt, metal, the list goes on. And because they are so sturdy, I feel free to experiment with and abuse them! They have applications that span the crafting gamut, and so are perfect for you if, like me, you regularly dip your fingers into various crafting disciplines. For example, although I am primarily a papercrafter, I immediately reached for my Flowers #5 die when I decided to make a sewn adornment for my little rescue, Pupusa, to wear on my wedding day. (See pic below) Bigz dies come in shapes that are ready to be embellished to suit your particular style or mood. So the key word for me when it comes to Bigz is VERSATILE. Versatility is essential when you have limited crafting/storage space and you want to be smart with your crafting dollars."
Please join us in admiring Vivian's amazing creations using Sizzix dies. Thank you Vivian!
