Sizzix: Gift Box | Smile

Back on the blog today sharing a gift box I made recently using Sizzix UK #662542 Amour thinlits die by Sophie Guilar.

I always find myself looking at dies in different ways. I guess it is the engineering aspect in me which prevails. I like the variety of ways to use 1 thing, and that keeps me going.

This time, I built a gift box instead. Great to have in handy, and simple to build. Most importantly, it also has the touch of elegance!

This envelope header die cuts the most elegant flourishes ever. How can one not fall in love with it?
I hope this gives you an idea of what you can make with this die. To me, it is not only an envelope die, but can also be used as a gift box flap or an album cover.

MWL DT: LO | Sew Cute

Hello crafty friends! I am back on the blog as Made With Love DT, with a layout using the lovely WRMK products today!

I must say, the WRMK products have made my life much easier as a crafter. In this layout, I made use of 4 punch boards, the typecast and the sewing machine.

Isn't my niece cute! She is such a gem, and this is one of my favorite photo of her.

I started out with the WRMK tab punch board to create a tab. This tab piece helps to create an interesting matting to the photo. It also helps me create a link to add word sentiments! Here, I have used my (mint) typecast and typed out the word "precious".

Creating the title was easy with the WRMK mini alphabet punch board. All I had to do was to cut down pattern papers to size (1.5"x2.5") and then open up the Alphabet punch board app! 

This app made it very easy for me to get to the alphabets I needed to punch out!

Of course I had to use the sewing machine! Sewing is my favorite thing to do on a layout. It creates dimensions and a different texture on the layout. Mint is also my favorite color, I own both the typecast and sewing machine in mint. (Though I am also loving the sweet touch of pink!) For this layout, I did some straight stitches from the cloud to the tiles below, creating a visual of a baby's mobile on top of their cribs.

Here is the bottom of the "baby mobile". I cut 2 pieces of square pattern paper and slided them into the WRMK frame punch. I am using the 0.25" frame width on this layout. In one of the frames, I typed a little message to my niece using the WRMK typecast! Love to be able to customize a short message or journal on my layout!

Last but not least, my brand new toy! I recently got a new toy - WRMK happy jig! So many possibilities! I love that the happy jig is so easy to use! Included in the package is a booklet of ideas (and 3 colors of wires to get started with!) For additional inspirations, you can also look for @werhappyjig on instagram! 

For the word baby, I decided to give it a try to fix the pieces on my own. (The engineer in me just had to give it a try!) Viola! It was quite a smooth process! 

I found it easier to staple the wire words in place. Just 2 staples holding the start and end of the word, it works! 

Thank you for joining me today in my layout walk through. Hope you enjoyed it, and gotten insights of how you can make use of the WRMK tools.

Sizzix: Keychain | Owl

Hello everyone! I couldn't help but do another project with the Sizzix Owl Bigz die! This owl has me really hooked. This time, I used felt instead of paper and made myself a little owl keychain.

How cute is this! Just cut the pieces required to assemble the owl. For the body, I used blind stitching and inserted some foam for the body. For the rest of the elements, you can choose to stitch or simply add glue to assemble.

Viola! A quick project and now my clutch has a matching owl keychain to go along!

Hope this inspires you to use different materials for the bigz die and you can achieve different purposes!

For my local friends residing in Singapore, the dies are available at Made with Love  whilst stocks last!
