Projects created by Hazel Poole

I love when customers share their projects with me.  These projects have been created by Hazel Poole.  She made the Humpty Dumpty Wall and Mother Goose Mini Album.  This was one of my earliest projects from 2013.  It looks so good.  The second project she made was the Cherished Memories II Mini Album which is from this year.  Check these out...

HUMPTY DUMPTY WALL AND 
MOTHER GOOSE MINI ALBUM
Created by: Hazel Poole 


Those bricks are amazing, they look like real bricks.  Can you see the spider hanging down?  I like the added touch with the Humpty Dumpty saying on top of the wall.  This is such a great job.

First, I love this paper, it is Echo Parks - I'd Rather Be Crafting paper line.  Second look how she used the banner pieces.  The "Craft" on the waterfall page and the "Love" on the pocket page.  So good.

New Dies for New Project

I got my new Sizzix dies yesterday and had to play with them tonight.  I got them for my new project I am working on.  You can see a hint of the project in the top right corner of the picture :)

I got the Sizzix Tim Holtz, Tropical thinlits.  I love the tiki mask on this set.  I also got Sizzix Lynda Kanase, Tropicool Banner.  I didn't get it for the banner part, but I love the bird and flowers in this set.  I will be playing with these some more, perfect for summer projects.

I think I'm going to spend tomorrow evening making flowers and birds.

Beach Bag Mini Album

Summer is here and I have created a perfect album for all your summer photographs.  I used Graphic 45 Sun Kissed paper collection for this album.  The size is 11 x 7 1/2" and contains 5 pages with pockets, flaps and tags.  Of course there is a written tutorial, kits and videos for this project. 

My favorite part of this project is the turtles on the papers.  I have always loved turtles and tortoises.  I have even owned both at one time in my life.  My tortoise's name was Abby and she was a sulcata.  Sulcata are one of the largest tortoises, at about 12 years of age they can weight 110 lbs and when they are fully grown can weight up to 150 lbs, with an average age of 70 years old.  These creatures fascinate me. 

For written Tutorials, click HERE or click on the "Tutorial" tab above.

For Kits, click HERE or click on the "Shop/Kit" tab above.

Videos for this project include a preview video, tutorial construction video and kit video, all of which are below after the pictures.

Mother's Day Tags

I made 2 Mother's Day Tags using Graphic 45 products and Floral Shoppe paper collections.  These are so fun to make and I just love the Floral Shoppe papers and the new dies from Graphic 45.  I have included a tutorial if you want to make these yourself.  The flowers are made using the Graphic 45 flower die.  I have already did a video tutorial to make the flowers, but I did include it at the end of this post.

DETAIL PICTURES











TUTORIAL

Grab a Large Tag and cut out from Graphic 45 Large Tag die to mat the tag.


 Cut out of piece of paper 3 3/4" width (it is actually just short of 3 3/4") and then tear slowly at an angle.  Ink edges and the torn area.


For the bottom piece, I traced the tag mat and cut out the corners with scissors, but you can use a corner punch if you have one.

Attach the strips.

Cut out letters.

Make flowers and greenery.  I added bling to the center of the flowers.  
Decorate tag.


2ND TAG



Graphic 45 clock die was used for the 2nd tag.
