Planning a party?  

Learn how to create your own favors, decorations, centerpieces, invitations and more with your Sizzix machine and Eileen Hull dies. You’ll find all kinds of creative ways to make your next wedding, shower, birthday party or special event extra special with these project DIY Sizzix Party Ideas.

I put together a little party using just a few of Eileen's dies from Sizzix.

I used 6 of Eileen Hull Die's by Sizzix.

     1. Cookie Box  - Love the Cookie Box die! 
     2. Romance Flower - This Romance Flower die......I am crushing on it! This flower just made everything look more stunning! Can you imagine a Baby Shower, or a Bridal shower done with these?  I love that you can make them in different sizes! Bonus!!!

     3. Canister  - To hold the candy coated marshmallows I used the Canister die. I use the bottom piece and punched 5 holes in it. That EASY!!! You could also use the Canister to hold utensils and straws.
     4. Needle Book - I just figured this out a few weeks ago, Turn the Needle Book on its side like this and it make for a great table marker or seating assignment at that special get together!

     ****FYI...Looks Amazing in a cream color with the flower on it! AMAZING!


 Oh my! This Romance Flower garland is so pretty!
 I added a flower to the center of a store bought decoration and now it fits right in!

      5. Flower Pocket - You could also use this for snacks, little gifts, licorice would look cute too!

 Easy Peasy! Add a flower to a bag for small gifts!

 Add a little flower to the straws for a fun festive look!

     6. Loaf Pan - These Loaf Pans are so handy! Little cakes, loafs of bread, snacks, and nuts all could be used in here! Perfect for the holiday baking gifts!

Chalkboard with some jute and a Romance Flower, straw and flower
 added and it makes a super fun board!

Seriously.....how cute is this Canister holding these treats?

This Romance Flower really adds so much for your party decor!

Every Flower was the Romance die and was made with coffee filters, dyed with acrylic paints.

I sure hope you enjoyed my Party! I sure enjoyed putting it together!

Sneak Peek!

I am so excited about this post!!!

Have you ever created something that just makes you grin from ear to ear?

Well......This is one of those projects!

I had so much fun sculpting, painting and creating it was like time stood still for me. I was in this glorious place of creating and loving and cherishing every minute of it.

With all of the bad things that have happened in the world, this just took me away. Just for a bit and I loved it.

I used bright bold colors! It was like playing with a rainbow!!!

If you want to see this and learn how to make one for yourself, you will have to visit Resin Craft blog HERE!

Under the Sea!

Oh my goodness!!! 

I am so happy to share with you this fabulous
fun, bright fishy project with you! 

I have had my two granddaughters here with me visiting and we went to see Finding Dory! It was so hot the day we went! We were wishing we were in the Sea swimming with the fish! It was so much fun and GREAT inspiration for this piece!

Some of you know I love to draw and paint. So what is better than to combine the two together!!!

I will show some of the steps that were taken to achieve this beautiful bright fish with the beautiful bubbles.......if I do say so myself!!!!

The first thing I did was sketch out where I wanted the fish and how she was to look. Once that was done, it was time to grab my DecoArt Media paint and get started! If your not familiar with DecoArt Media paint it is a Fluid Acrylic paint. You can read about them HERE.

I grabbed every color that was bright! Very unusual for me!

I started with the background and when I pretty happy with it I went on to the fish!
 I didn't follow all the lines that I drew and I added different details that I did not draw!
These DecoArt Media colors are so FUN!!!!

I LOVE the Green Gold, it is so pretty!

 I continued to add color and decided on rainbows for the fins!

And those BUBBLES!!!   I just love how they turned out!

I thought why not try some Glitter Glass on parts of the painting? Let's give it a try and see what happens.


I added some to look like coral at the bottom of the picture. I added the white thinking coral is white and it would be pretty, see what happens after the resin was applied!!!

Using EnviroTex Lite I mixed it according to manufacturer’s directions.
Add part A and part B together and mix for 2 minutes. If you would like to learn more about EnviroTex Lite please go HERE.

Pour into first cup and mix for 1 additional minute.

And pour over painting! I had never used this product so I was ohhhh so nervous!!!!

Look at all those bubbles, I thought I may have done something wrong! But NO, it happens and you can use a lighter and or a straw to remove them!

WHEW! Was I nervous!!!!

So, so happy with the way this turned out! 

My biggest dilemma was that both of the grand kids wanted it!!! Oh NO, how do I choose???

My niece has a little girl who has her room decorated with under the sea decor, she gets it!!!

One last thing........White Glitter Glass does not show under the resin!!!

It's GONE!!! 

Always learning something new!
