There's something about this warm, summer like weather right now here in Southern California that makes us want to pack up and head to the beach, or on a road trip. We're SO ready for spring and summer, and its showing up in our crafts and makes. When we think of traveling and road trips here at Sizzix, we immediately think of Eileen Hull and her Paper Trail tours with Scotty. (Her 9th one will be starting this weekend!) We started looking at the awesome projects and makes from Eileen's collections, and we found ourselves ready to start some springtime crafting! Come join us for a look at 12 makes we absolutely love from Eileen's Sizzix collections!
We absolutely love this adorable U.S. Party Favor Bag by Michelle Stewart. Using the United States Map, Road Sign, Stamp & Postcard and the Banners & Pennants thinlits, Michelle used vinyl to die cut her shapes and quickly created this really cute favor bag, perfect for a 4th of July party or even a party for someone who's going on a trip or moving!
We've loved seeing all of the unique ways Eileen's Luggage Tag die has been used, but when we saw Nicole Wright's Leather Backpack Tag right before heading off to the CHAW 2016 show, we were amazed! We love the clean, leather look to this make, perfect for her trip out here to Southern California from Canada!
This Summer Treat Bag by Audrey Pettit using the Travel Trailer die is making us ready for some summer parties, s'mores and outdoor fun! We love this die so much, not only because it reminds us of Eileen's beloved Scotty, but because of how versatile it is- from cards, to party favors to treat boxes, we can never get enough of this die!
We LOVE when Eileen posts tutorials on her blog (and our blog too!) We cannot get over this adorable Paper and Felt Cake! Eileen used several of her flower dies, and our favorite, her Flower Layers #9 dies to create this bright and happy make. We love that spring is right around the corner- this make is definitely one we want to replicate!
We can't help but get happy when we see this Happy Journey make by Genevive Rulona featuring the awesome Toolbox and Luggage Tag dies. We love how bright and happy this DIY is, and how easy these dies are to use!
We've been obsessed with Eileen's Train Case for a while now, but we can't get over Hilary Kanwischer's Inspirational Travel Case make! She beautifully used embellishments, ribbons, stickers and layers to give her case a truly shabby and "traveled" look. Absolute perfection!
We were blown away when we first saw this Mixed Media Chair tutorial by Anna-Karin Evaldsson. Using the 3-D Adirondack Chair die, Anna-Karin flawlessly explains how to not only make the chair itself,but how to create the shabby look to the chair, complete with the wood grain finish. We love this home decor piece so much!
This is quite possibly one of our favorite projects of all time. Mou Saha beautifully created this Vintage Kitchen make using Eileen's Make it 3-D die. We love this die SO much. We can make anything 3-D with it, and Mou perfectly explains how to use this die to create unique and gorgeous vintage kitchen makes.
Jennifer Priest got awesomely creative with this Mini Planner and Air Freshener DIY and we LOVE it! She used Eileen's Needle Book die to create a really cute mini planner and the Embroidery Hoop die to create an air freshener. These makes are so cool, and a perfect addition to your car!
Treat boxes are our favorite things when party making, and we adore this Oven Treat Favor Box by Jeanne Strieff using the 3-D Oven die. It's perfect for a housewarming gift or even to use as a party favor for a baby shower! We love Jeanne's use of buttons for the stove top too. So cute!
We love food almost as much as we love making and we LOVE that Eileen created dies for cute food packaging. Her Loaf Pan and Cookie Box are two of our most favorite dies to use for when we give small treats to friends and loved ones. This simple and cute Wrap Up Baked Goods tutorial by Adrianne Surian makes us want to start cooking and making right now!
We are still in awe over this amazing make by Lisa Hoel. She expertly and beautifully combined Eileen's Embroidery Hoop, Border Stitchlits, and Buttons, Border & Trim dies to create this masterpiece of awesome. We love this make so much!
We love and appreciate all of these makes and projects- and we hope that you're just as inspired as we are!
