Create a Fun House with Sizzix



So I got this idea for a fun house in the middle of the night.  Because that always makes sense!

I am celebrating the holidays with the Eileen Hull Inspiration Team.  And yes, Halloween to me is a holiday!  Here's how it went down... My cat Flurry wanted to hang out for a some cuddles and purring.  Of course it was 3:30AM.  That's when I got this idea... a Fun House with the Canister (shhhh... it's been retired) die.  


I cut mat board for the canister and spritzed with Black Soot.  Covered with Halloween Paper and then snapped my Skeleton.

Wrap up the lights and stuff to the bottom!
"Tickets Please"



A few snaps and I can pose my guy.  Check out the wall paper and photo's behind him.


A spider or 2...



Using the Alphanumeric Marquee for the glitter paper works!






Ephemera... why not



A nicely hidden battery pack for the lights.



Boo



Corrugated roof


WHAT.... CREEPY at night too!

I hope you had fun checking this Fun House Ticket Taker out!  Hanging out in this clever little Ticket Booth ready to take payment.  Now that's a different take on the Canister die!

Stop by to see what the Inspiration Team has been whipping up all month!

  1. Nicole, this is utterly brilliant! I am in love with it. So glad you also end up crafting at 3:30 in the morning. May I ask where the marquee letters come from?

  2. Dang girl, I dig your style! I'm glad I caught the Eilleen Hull bug a few years ago, ever since, I've been adding her dies to my collection, most of them I caught before they retired! Phew. Where did you find that little Skeleton?! I want that candy corn tree!!! I bet your daughter loves it!!!

    1. I agree, I love Eileen's dies! I caught the bug and started designing for her a few months later! I think she was tired of me stalking her!

      The skeletons are the best! I get them from Michaels.

Grinch

I am so excited to share this Tutorial with you!  This is a tutorial on how to "draw" an image to scale!  How to take a small image and make it life size using a grid pattern.  I'm sure if you are on Pinterest like I am you've seen The Grinch stealing Christmas lights.  I looked for a tutorial on how to make my own but I couldn't find one.  Not to say someone hasn't created a tutorial.  So, I decided to create my own.  With the help of my husband who created the Grid pattern for me to make these characters come to life.  Much like he did for my daughter's Union Jack Headboard.  Keep in mind, this is NOT A COPY of The Grinch.  Before you consider purchasing the class...you will have to DRAW him yourself.  In this class you'll be shown how to grid a print out and grid your plywood so you can "DRAW BY NUMBER" if you will.  Even if you can't draw... you can draw the lines in each grid connecting them to the next grid.  I can draw but not s…

New Release- Stamp and Photo Storage

All month the Inspiration Team for Eileen Hull is thrilled to be showing off the her newest Book Club Collection.  Here's my little glimpse at the Stamp and Photo Storagedie.  There is nothing this decent size die can't do... or hold!  In this case Letter's to Santa.  I even combined the Trinket Box & Frame to frame out Santa.


I stamped the Woodland Winter Santa designed by yours truly onto watercolor paper and used my Scribble sticks to add a little color.
I cut a piece of clear packaging and ran it through my little Xyron Disposable Sticker Makerto create a cover for my Santa.  Perfection!

I colored up the Floral Arch and Words arch to attach to the bottom and top and attached.  I used some Distress Woodgrain Cardstock to wrap my Stamp and Photo Storage. I cut Super StockCardstock to fit inside.  Inking and stamping like crazy all tied off with some postal twine.  The Correspondence Stamp Set is perfect.


I mounted the Trinket Box & Frame to the Stamp and Storage…

Pumpkin Parts Thanksgiving w/ Xyron

While my Thanksgiving may be over it is coming soon south of the border.

Xyronis getting ready for holiday season and what better way then with the Pumpkin Parts die cut.  This easy card is layered with paper and ink to create a festive pumpkin card.  The team will be sharing their fall inspired projects all week so be sure to pop by for lots of inspiration.



The Create a Sticker is great for all the smaller pieces to layer and quickly put together.  For a quick background stamp the craft sheet with Distress Oxides, spray and drag.
I cut Thanksgiving from the Sentiment Words Thinlit and attached with the Sticker Maker.Fall Foliage has this little hay die cut that I added to the bottom of the pumpkin attached the Xyron Mega Runner.
I clipped a couple of the Twisted pieces for a little green for the top of the pumpkin.





Don't miss any of the inspiration with the rest of the Xyron Team.
