Sizzix Blog Hop - Project #1


Today is the first day of the new Sizzix Blog Hop.  60 designers are participating and each of us will create a project each week for the next 6 weeks using the same Sizzix dies.  To hop from blog to blog, click "next" in the Sizzix blog hop icon in the sidebar.  Here's my design for Eileen Hull's Scoreboard "House" die.



After cutting the shape from mat board, I used a sponge brush to coat the entire surface with Elmers Fabric & Paper glue, then sprinkled with glitter.  I glued Zucker feathers to the roof with Elmers Tacky glue.  The windows were outlined with Crystal Elements clear stickers and for an added touch, I colored small pieces of acetate with a yellow marker and adhered behind the window.  Place the finished house over a tea light (the little LCD? ones) - don't want to set the house on fire, right.....  If you want to know which glue to use stick this to that, check out Elmers on FB, and "yes", they even have an AP for that!

This is Sizzix supply list:

#65279;Sizzix Scoreboards Pro Die -  House, 3D, by Eileen Hull
Sizzix 12x12 White Matboard 

This is just one idea of at least 60, so "hop" to it and enjoy!   BTW, check out the GIVEAWAY at the Scrapbook Memories FB page - it's a Sizzix BIG SHOT!  Y'all come back now!

Yours truly,
Julie :)
