Sizzix Tutorial | Victorian Frame Canvas by Aida Haron

Hello crafters ! This is Aida and welcome back to the Sizzix Blog for this Sizzix Tutorial. Brenda Walton makes some of the prettiest dies and today I am using the Victorian Frame XL Bigz die and Floral Wreath Thinlits to create this canvas mounted home accent. This project can easily be adapted for cards, part of a layout or a book cover.

As you can see the instructions are inside the packaging and you will not have to worry about getting lost!

To begin, I die cut the Frame using a Blue Fern patterned paper. There are two parts to the frame but for this project I needed only the piece with the center cut out.

Your cutting sandwich when using this die from the bottom is: an Extended Cutting Pad onto your Sizzix Big Shot, followed by the Frame die face up, followed by your paper, then the other Extended Cutting Pad on top. Roll this sandwich through your Big Shot.

This is how the Frame die-cut looks like.

Roll the diagonal pieces backwards with a pencil and using pearl brads.

I anchored the corners to the frame in the pre-cut holes.

We have been saved from having to peel the die cuts out of the Thinlits by the all new Precision Base Plate!! This is an amazing accessory: no more digging out the die cuts, even the detailed ones .... and yes, you can throw away that waxed paper.

Tim Holtz has a CHA 2015 demonstration on the Precision Base Plate: HERE

The Precision Base Plate is used with the Magnetic Platform and replaces ONE Cutting Pad. The sandwich you will have is: on your Big Shot the Magnetic Platform, followed by the Precision Base Plate the metal side facing up, the paper, followed by the Thinlits the cutting side facing down, and finally the regular Cutting Pad.

Lay the Precision Base Plate on the Magnetic Platform and you can see the metal side is face-up. I have used Gold Foil and the cutting side of the Thinlits are facing down to cut into the Foil.

The Standard Cutting Pad (Watermelon) goes on top and you roll it through the Sizzix Big Shot.

It's wonderful to have the die cuts just pop out of the Thinlits with very little effort!

Next I trimmed a patterned paper slightly larger than the frame.

Here I adhered small pieces of styrofoam behind the Frame to get the raised effect and glue the Frame to the larger patterned paper.

The clear sticker Hello was added to the Gold Foil Thinlits banner. Next (the fun part!) in the recessed area created by the raised Frame, layer the die cuts, the Gold Foil Butterfly together with fussy-cut pieces from the Blue Fern patterned paper. To finish, all you need to do is mount the frame on to a painted canvas background.

This was really a lovely project to make and I love the light, fresh colors and Thinlits details. Thank you for joining me here today, happy creating !!
