Sizzix Storybook Easter Carriage- Done!

Good Morning Everybody!

Hope your weekend is off to a Wonderful start!  Overcast this morning in Central Texas which means great crafting weather!  Yahooo!

As I mentioned yesterday, I've been working on an Easter project for Sizzix Blog that I call, Sizzix Storybook Easter Carriage.  I'm over at the Sizzix Blog today and would be grateful if you would come over and check it out.  From there you will find additional pictures and a link to download the tutorial for free.  So please do me the honor and come on over when you can today....You can find that link by clicking HERE or by cutting and pasting this link into the address bar on your browser:  http://sizzixblog.blogspot.com/2013/03/storybook-easter-carriage.html



I give you Sizzix Storybook Easter Carriage.... A fun project using Sizzix Dies and a paper mache box from the craft store.








I made a fast and easy tag mini to place inside the egg by making pockets, adding hinges in between and placing tags into the pockets.  Done.









Thanks for coming by here and Sizzix Blog today!  I appreciate y'all!

  4. I remembered and it was the reason I jumped out of bed at 6 a.m.! I went there first and posted you a comment. It is so magical, it reminds me of something from Disney, which is my favorite magical place. It is so beautiful Jim. Job well done!

  6. Oh Jim, It is beautiful. I disagree that it is Disney like, only coz I'm not a big Disney fan & I love your carriage! How does your brain go from dark & grungy to bright & cheery creations so quickly & get me wanting to recreate both for my own home? Fabulous. Going to grab the tutorial from the Sissiz blog & leave you some more love.. Hugs, Theresa.

  28. My eyes hurt looking at the riot of color. Great idea but the color palette could have used more thought. Pastels work nicely for Easter and aren't nearly as painful to look at.
