Nichola Battilana beautifully creates with this new collection. We love this altered box and needle felted bunny! Take it away, Nichola:


"Browsing the pages of the Precious Memories collection for inspiration, I sort of fell in love with image of the little boy and his rabbit. The fellow with the curls nuzzling his stuffed bunny reminded me of my son when he was toddling around with 'Mr. Elephant' (don’t tell him I told you that!) I still have that little elephant. It’s tucked somewhere, not completely away, so that I stumble across it once in a while, causing memories to flood back.

For this piece I created a little needle felted bunny, just like the one in the image, to create a sense that that moment had actually existed. Don’t be frightened off by that little woolen bunny! This little sentimental vignette would be even sweeter created with a real photograph and small childhood momento." ~Nichola

Keri Sallee makes a stunning project with Artisan Style below. Take it away, Keri!

"When I unboxed the “Artisan Style” collection, I was immediately in love with the Art Deco images. It made me think of The Great Gatsby and parties and flappers.


I had been saving my “Cathedral” style shapes from 7Gypsies for the perfect project and I knew this was it. To me, using pictures from my wedding connected the canthedral/church idea to the passionate Art Deco Era that the patterns evoked.


Each piece is covered with “Artisan Style” collection and connected by a strip of coordinating paper across the back.

To make my flower bouquet, I cut flowers from each paper style using my Sizzix die “Tattered Florals” by Tim Holtz. Using my foam 3-D flower technique (you can check out my You Tube video for this and more ideas!), I made them all 3-D, collaged them together and added G45 stamped brads." ~Keri
