I think the crepe paper was the most unusual- only because I have not seen it in years/ decades-! Beautiful projects all.

Crystal said...

PaulaJ said...

I would have to say that I feel the most unique material used in todays hop was recycled sweater. Love those fringed trees! So cute!

I love the printed tissue paper - it lends just a little extra to the airy little flower. Thanks for the inspiration!

I think the foam stamps created by Julie Fei-Fen Balzer were the most creative and unusual use of the die. I have the Tim Holtz' machine and I think it would use this die. Otherwise, please give it to someone else!

I think the most unique material used in the blog hop today was the recycled wool felted sweaters to make the Christmas trees. Loved the hop...thanks for the inspiration.

Miriam Prantner said...

I LOVED Julie's idea of making your own foam stamps, genius! http://balzerdesigns.typepad.com/balzer_designs/2011/10/sizzix-blog-hop-die-cut-your-own-foam-stamps.html,

But, I think the most unique material used was recycled wool felted sweaters from Stefanie: http://craftside.typepad.com/craftside/2011/10/how-to-make-recycled-wool-felted-sweater-christmas-trees-with-the-sizzix-fringe-die-cut.html

I love how Stefanie used sweaters to create her Christmas trees!

famillemarleau said...

All the artists made great projects. The most original material I think was Stefanie's (craftside.typepad.com) project with recycled felt sweater to make her Christmas tree. Thanks for the chance, Johanne L.

I loved all of them, but I was most excited to see the recycled sweater christmas trees!!I recently made a similar tree using paper and I had to cut each strip and fringe it myself. Using the die would be so much faster and easier!!! I can't wait to try it!http://www.typepad.com/services/trackback/6a00e55007f59388340153928ee011970b

Ann Butler said...

The wool sweater was the most creative...great way to be GREEN!

Gina said...

I loved all the great ideas but my favorite was the recycled sweater christmas trees. I recently made a tree using paper but I had to cut each strip and fringe it myself. The 3D flower die would make this project so much faster! I cant wait to make this!http://www.typepad.com/services/trackback/6a00e55007f59388340153928ee011970b

Carol said...

I liked all of them, but Julie's use of the die to make foam stamps is a great way to get more use from the die. I'd love to win it.

Arlen said...

recycled sweaters were the most unique both in material and in the use of the die! ... but my favorite use {of all these really wonderful and creative ideas} was the smooch spritzed organza flowers. They were just so pretty!

Skree said...

I like the idea of using the coffee filters, tea died. http://mylifeslittlemoments.wordpress.com/

Also Julie's ideas are always so creative. She's full of great ideas.

Mou S said...

Beautiful die! Hopping along and loving the inspiration :)

Carol P said...

I would love to win this fabulous die. I think one of the most unique materials is the sweater. Although I also loved the flower made from coffee filters. I have used them before in art projects and they are a wonderful material. Especially nice to spritz color and stamp with bleach! Thanks for the opportunity to win.

NanaBeth said...

I've wanted this die since it first came out and now I want it even more.I've bookmarked Eileen's page with the links to all the awesome creations.Dawned on me while looking at the mesh example,this will be a quick and easy way to make scrubbies for the bath!

Karen said...

I liked the leathery paper that Karen used with her neat clasp. It really looks like leather!http://karenburniston.typepad.com/i_am_not_lefthanded/2011/10/fresh-vintage-blog-hop-scoreboard-suitcase.html

scrappinvall said...

I thought the tulle was the most unique. I found it at http://clearsnap.blogspot.com/

Anne said...

The most unique was the different shades of recycled sweaters -fringed to make the trees, and the cereal box cardboard to make the cones that acted as the base for those trees.

Katt aka LaLa said...

Oooh, what fabulous projects. All of them were gorgeous. The one that stood out the most for me was Stefanie's felt sweater tree. How innovative! I have loads of wool sweaters that I no longer use and will definately give this a try.
