Springtime with the Sizzix Making Journal


Hello, crafty friends, happy Friday! Hope you are all doing well, and I hope you managed to have a lovely Easter weekend, even with the quarantine orders to stay at home. It was very quiet here at my house, and has been throughout the week, but I must say… the days sure go by fast. And Finley and I are making the most of the beautiful springtime weather we’ve been having in between our days of wind and rain.


Speaking of springtime, today I am sharing this sweet spring-inspired home decor frame on the Sizzix UK blog, The Making Journal. This framed project uses three of the new Tim Holtz die sets from the Chapter 2 release, including my absolute favorite, Feathered Friends. I live on the East Coast, and love to see the bluebirds that return to my yard at this time of year. To me, they are a perfect harbinger of the spring season.


I love cost-effective decor projects, like this thrift-store frame re-do. I paid less than a dollar for this sweet green-striped frame, and by using my dies and supplies I already had on hand, I created this altered frame for next to no cost. How awesome is that?


If you’d like to learn more about this project, or check out the step-by-step tutorial, be sure to stop by The Making Journal blog. And as always, thanks so much for stopping by!
