Stay until the end to enter the Blog Hop Giveaway!

First, Lori has this amazing project using Home Sweet Home that we all want to make for our kitchen! Check out her tutorial below.

"My sister is always over at my house and I’ll hear her ask 'Are your dishes clean or dirty in the dishwasher?' I thought it was about time I took care of her on going question with this adorable soap box set. I bought a magnet with a hook to go on the front of my dishwasher and I’ll just turn the tag/sign to show what the dishes are on the inside. I figured it would be a shame not to include the soap box too, so I covered it with the Home Sweet Home collection also. Join me on a Snapguide Tutorial and I’ll show you how to create this durable clean/dirty sign with the beautiful Spellbinders daisies to adorn it." ~Lori

Next, Nichola has this most beautiful Precious Memories and Spellbinders fairytale stage. Wow! Love this! Check out her tutorial below.

"A pretty little shadowbox, a dainty fairytale stage, made with Precious Memories and Spellbinders dies. The die cut pieces are layered to create an ornate archway, framing the wee winged dancer. I’ve cut the die-cut pieces to fit my need. Remember, never be afraid to trim, cut, fold, bend, paint or do whatever it takes to make your project work for you. There is no ‘wrong way’ :)" ~Nichola

I love the shadowbox! I was also thrilled to see that some of the tools that I have bought over the years will be useful once again. :-)

I really liked the stage and the great idea for the dish washer

Both projects are absolutely lovely. A number of years ago I made placks for the dishwasher that said Clean and Dirty but they were not this elaborate. Maybe I will try something like this. I love the Graphic 45 paper. The little shadow box is so cute. Wish I had a little girl to make one to give her. Thanks for sharing.

What cool projects!

Great projects. I love your Graphic 45 style!!

Love these designs. I need to make the "dishwasher" sign, but my dishwasher has no metal on the front.

You never cease to amaze with your outstanding project ideas! Love the tutorial....so much easier to follow along than a video for me!

WOW! The stage is set and I want to be on it. That is so incredible I just LOVE IT!
This would be so amazing for Halloween, Christmas. My daughter will be in a school play this Spring and this would make the perfect keepsake!
The snap guide idea is also wonderful. It would work well for so many things, Great Idea! :)

Love the clean & dirty sign!!

I've learned new techniques from both of today's photo tutorials. I never would have thought to use that die for leaves...works beautifully! Thanks! Lovely day for a blog hop!

Love the papers!!!! Great idea for the dishwasher. The shadowbox is cute, too.

I've been using your papers since I started paper crafting many years ago. Just adore them and always wonder how you come up with the fresh ideas. Thanks for the opportunity to be creative.

both projects are awesome!!!

If only I had a dishwasher! Cute stage with dies. I NEED these retired collections! Tfs

So beautiful!!! I love the papers combined with the lacy dies. Yummmmmy!
