Beautiy Begins the Moment Collapse Cube Frame with Eileen Hull Inspiration Team

Happy Tuesday before Valentines' Day! I hope you are enjoying Eileen Hull's Inspiration Team sharing the "love" of our favorite dies! I am sharing a small tutorial on how to create a Collapse Card using the Block/Cube/Bank XL Die. The Block/Cube/Bank XL Die is retired but I am sure any of you that have this die will love how to create a Collapse Card. BUT.... I did find a few available on Amazon so if you want one click HERE!

Begin by cutting 2 pieces of mat board using the Block/Cube/Bank XL Die and form cube.

Cut bottom from cube.

Cut one more of the Block/Cube/Bank XL Die pieces from mat board, cut pieces to measure 1 1/2". You will need 3 pieces.

Adhere cut mat board to inside of cube to form collapse card.

Adhere inked pattern paper to collapse card.

Add stickers to side of collapse card with pop dots.
Add hemp ties to top of box.

Die cut Flower Layers & Stem from pattern paper.

Ink edges of flower pieces; form flowers.

Add flowers to sides of collapse card.

Add a few prepared flowers to back and inside pieces of collapse card.

Fussy cut images and adhere to collapse card.

Fold Epherema Card in half; place Bookplate, Hinges, & Labels on top of folded card. Make sure to not cut one side of the Bookplate, Hinges, & Labels. I use washi tape to hold in place.

Add pocket to back of collapse card to place prepare Epherema Card in.

Fold to collapse card. It will measure approx. 6" x 6" but depending on the layers that is added you will need a larger envelop to place it in.

Open to get the full affect of the "Beauty Begins the Moment" you open up the collapse card. I hope you are inspired to create a few collapse cards using  Block/Cube/Bank XL Die. Also, experiment with other Eileen Hull Dies to see if you can make other collapse cards. Pam

Dance in the Rain with Authentique

Hi! Today I am sharing with you my upcycled Shadowbox Frame using Authentique Refreshed Collection. I don't know about you but I am ready for Spring! When the bluebirds, robins, and cardinals start showing up to start building their nest I know it won't be long.

I found this gem of a shadowbox frame at my local thrift store. I knew right away that I would create a home décor piece. Authentique Refreshed was the perfect collection for my project because who doesn't love to "Dance in the Rain"!

I began by painting my shadowbox frame navy blue and allowed it to dry. Add pattern paper to the inside along with the matted "Dance in the Rain" journal card. Fussy cut border; adhere to the bottom of inside of frame along with a matching piece of pattern paper and circle sticker that was placed on a pop dot.

Photo 1: Paint chipboard circle with white paint; dry. Adhere paper doily to top and place on frame.
Photo 2: Die cut petal from pattern paper. Form heart; adhere to top of doily.
Photo 3: Adhere circles to top of heart.
Photo 4: Fussy cut bird and place on circles with pop dots.

Add another die cut petal to top of frame along with bow, flower, leaves and berries.

Layer circle sticker to circle paper; add to front of frame with a pop dot.

I hope you run out to your local thrift stores to see what you can upcycle for your home or maybe to give as a gift. Pam

Project Love ...

Memories!!!! Fun how things pop up in your Facebook Memories! Today I woke up to find these sweet photos of a "Project Of Love" I created a few years ago for a Design Team project for Eileen Hull's Inspiration Team.

 I used the Be Mine Collection for my Cookie Container... I have to say this is still one of my favorite dies. So versatile and so easy to use. I cut mat board out using the die and then my paper, adhered them together and decorated.

These fabulous flowers are from the Window Box Die, aren't they wonderful. I cut two of them out to form each flower and added a pearl to the center of each.

The hearts are cut out using the mat board and paper using Tim Holtz Die. I added more of the amazing flowers, along with beads and pearls.

Here is a closer look at the top....

 I created a wonderful Love Card to go along with my Be Mine Cookie Container using the Window Box Die. Placing fun embellishments in each of the window panes. Isn't it a wonderful way to share the love.

 I hope you have enjoyed my Be Mine Card and Cookie Box showing my projects of "love" for some of my favorite Eileen Hull Dies!
