Have you seen the Sizzix Maker Challenge? You can find it HERE. There is a fabulous prize on offer for a lucky winner! All you need to do is use Eileen Hull's House Pocket Stitchlits die (Sizzix 661902) and add Stitchy Flowers & Leaf die (Sizzix 661903) and Birds & Butterflies die (Sizzix 661901). You don't have to use the second two but if you can, so much the better!
I made a 3D log cabin! As a child we spent two weeks each summer on Manitoulin Island in Canada and we always stayed in the same log cabin. It was a little basic with no electricity, a wood stove and an ice box which cooled food using huge blocks of ice, but it was such fun!
I used some Kraft card and also some corrugated packaging card to form my base, all cut using the House Pocket die.
To make the cabin 3D I used Eileen's 'Make it 3D' die which gives a more realistic look to the cabin as it gives it some dimension.
I used the House Pocket die and also the Stitchy Flowers and Leaf die (with shrink plastic to make my teeny flowers and leaves) and the Birds & Butterflies die (to make the little butterfly from shrink plastic). I attached a piece of wire to each flower before shrinking them, to give me a stem to hold the flowers up in the little boxes I created from corrugated card. The flowers were coloured using Alcohol markers. I added a little pile of 'logs' to the side of the cabin.
Here is the prize, which includes Eileen's fabulous Journal die:

You have got to be in it to win it!!
And just to show the versatility of the House Pocket die, here is another idea, I made a pin cushion for CHA 2017, when the die first came out. I used Kunin Felt and hand stitched the edges.
It would be lovely to see you join in the Sizzix Maker Challenge! I had great fun making my projects....
