Guest Designer Today! Sizzix- Filigree Reindeer Sleigh!

Good Morning Everyone!

I would be grateful if you would please join me over at Sizzix Blog today as I am the Guest Designer.  I have come up with a Christmas project using a cool mixture of Sizzix awesome dies to make a Filigree Reindeer Sleigh and Tim Holtz's new Seasonal  Idea-ology Paper Stash- Holiday Past!



It was a really fun project to create.  I have also done a tutorial that you can find on Sizzix Blog and download in a pdf format.  So please go on over and let me know what you think!


You can either follow this link HERE....or go to:  http://sizzixblog.blogspot.com/2012/11/die-cutting-paper-filigree-reindeer.html








Thank You Tammy Tutterow for asking me to be a part of Sizzix Bog today!  You Rock!

Have an AWESOME day!

  3. Wow Jim that is really awesome! I am new to your blog and YouTube and I'm so glad I found you! Not only are you extremely talented but I get a little glimps of home when I read your blog. Lived in Austin for most of my life and I sure miss it! This sleigh is really beautiful, thanks for sharing it!

    1. Michelle,

      Anytime I can give you a glimpse of home, it would be my pleasure. I moved away once and know how much I missed it! Sure is growing!

      Thank you Michelle!

    2. Actually going to get my "fix" this coming week. Gonna get to see my new Grandbaby and go to Archivers! What could be better? Haha! Where I live now I have to drive 2 hours just to get to a Hobby Lobby and this state (New Mexico) doesn't even know what Michaels is! Can you imagine? Haha! You gotta be feeling my pain. Lol!
      Thanks Jim!

  7. I love your beautiful sleigh, but cracked up at your misuse of "apart". I'm sure you meant "a part". Totally different meaning when using "apart". You still rock Jim!

    1. Thanks Holly! Even if you don't have the dies, look at what you have and you will be surprised how you can incorporate them into the project and make them functional!

      Thanks Tons Again!

  9. LOVE LOVE LOVE this! I was blown away by all that is going on here. It was fun to pick out what dies you used. I have been a Sizzix fan since day one and have stuck by their side through good & bad. You are the person they need to show how to go out of the box with their dies.

  12. Wow Jim, this is fabulous. I think I have enough sizzix dies (not the same ones maybe) but I don't have the stag. What an enabler hahaha Thanks for sharing the tutorial. What paper did you use?

  13. Hey, Mr. GC
    Am new to your blog, and am still dizzy from all the beautiful stuff I've seen. Found you through G45 and have overnight transferred from card maker to the wonderful world of "display!" My pre-k class is in for a TREAT! Thank you for your time and generousity. The videos rock! Back to the archives! Later...

  14. Disregard that last question, I knew as soon as I hit publish that the answer would be in the instruction. "read all the instructions first" hahaha

  31. Jim, this project really started my Christmas juices flowing! I love the engineering you do for your designs, but your artistic talent far outshines even the craftsmanship! As always, your instructions in the tutorial are easy to follow (or I'm beginning to think more like you!) Thanks for taking the time to write up how you made this wonderful creation and sharing it with all of us. Have a great Thanksgiving. I'm going to give your table place cards a go as soon as I post this.

  32. Do you ever sleep? Silly question, of course you do, how else would you 'dream up' these wonderful creations? So much work has gone into this, truly inspirational!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Fantastic as always. I especially admire your 3d creations. I often have trouble with the paper lifting from the chipboard, and if I try to seal it with something like modge podge then the finish is streaky. How do you do it? What glue/adhesive do you use? I would really appreciate your advice - I have a lot of Christmas projects that I keep putting off because I cannot get the finish I want.
    Cheers!

  37. That is fabulous! :) With the deer looking backward I can just imagine a little "beep beep beep" sound issuing from the sleigh as it backs out of its parking spot at the North Pole Target store. :)

  38. This is wonderful and would make a great table centrepiece on Christmas Day. You are so clever to think up things like this and very kind to share the instructions with us all too. Thank you!
