Sizzix Fresh Vintage Blog Hop!!!

Last month I was asked to contribute to the Sizzix Fresh Vintage and Epiphany Crafts Blog Hop! I was so excited to join the amazing group of crafters helping to promote Eileen Hull's new designs for Sizzix.

I was sent the Sizzix Bigz Leaves die to work with. I loved the shape of these leaves. They are the perfect size for pages and cards. After I cut my shapes with my BigShot, I added an embossed line down the center of each with my Scor-Pal Board. I then added texture to the leaves by fringing the edges with my Martha Stewart fringe scissors.


I made this page first...and liked how the leaves turned out so much that I went ahead and made a card too!

The page uses the Epiphany Crafts Round 22 and 14 Button Maker, the Card uses just the 22. The button maker was the perfect size to highlight my Jillibean Soup apple and date stickers.

Supply List:
Leaf Die - Sizzix
Epoxy Buttons and Button Maker- Epiphany Crafts
Fringe Scissors - Martha Stewart
Border Punch - Fiskars
Pop Dots

Jillibean Soup Supplies:

Yep! I agree that the fringing is brilliant and the leaves look like fabric. Love seeing a scrapbook layout on the hop - you inspire me! Also, I scrolled down and I love the zombies! Brilliant!
