Little Birdie Told Me

A Little Birdie Told Me

A little birdie told me that “chicks” grow so fast. So here I am celebrating our baby “birds”. I love my family, and my grandchildren are number one. I love my new habit (hobby) using paper….well I will go back to fabric one day soon. I am so amazed at all that you create. So honoring all of you paper crafters I have tried to use some of the techniques I have learned from you! So here goes my first SCRAPBOOK page!



I love the New eCraft Diecutable Cardstock and used it to build my page. I then trimmed a sheet of the DCWV Musings as my background for this “birdie” page. I love the wonderful cutting files on my eCraft SD card and quickly cut frames and the back of the little birdie out of Pearls Paper. I embossed the embellishment on the frame windows. Sized my photos and threaded ribbon through them.  Worked my placement on background and then inserted brad at the intersection point. I used my pencils to embellish die cuts and then the fun. I love the Unity Stamp set “Birds of a Feather”. I place them in various ways I stamped them in black and colored with pencils. Then I tried some glue and glittered the image. I love this new medium, well new to me!



I hope you enjoy my “Chicks” I know that I enjoy all of yours!

See you soon!

Welcome to you . My project for the hop is this little heart shaped luminary. I made it from a SVGcuts “Love Me Do” set. I modified the sides to be deep enough to place a tea light in. I used my favorite card stock from eCraft Diecutable Cardstock from The PaperMill Store. The pattern paper was from an assortment of papers from JoAnn's Fabrics.  I used a heart shape cut out on the front of the luminary. I love my Unity Stamps ,” Birds of a Feather” set. I knew it would be perfect for my luminary.  I stamped  it on silk shantung using my colorbox inks to make the light window. I also used my Prismacolor markers to produce the rich color tones!  I made feet from two additional heart cut outs. and punched holes and threaded cord thru to embellish my light box.

I know that everyone likes or at least might have seen “Sweethearts” candies. Well DO I have a deal for you. Leave a comment on my blog below this post, and these glass heart beads could be yours. Remember not for use around small children or pets..

Happy New Year! 2012 here I come!

Happy New Year! 2012 is the year to experience your dreams!


eCrafting my inspirations!

Hello All! I am Debi Tullier (to-yay) I am a jack of all trades and a master of none, but that is where the fun is!!!

I am delighted to be back with the eCraft Design Team! I am looking forward to all of the wondrous adventures ahead with my eCraft.  I am so thankful for the inspiration that I receive from my fellow crafters and hopefully I will also inspire someone to open their crafting cupboard!

My Project is my One Word Inspire Box. I have a good friend that uses this to set her yearly goals. She uses a word to set her goal for the year. I am not a long term person and need to have inspiration on a daily basis. So my word for this month is Inspire and each day I take a slip of paper and write down one word. This slip goes into my inspire box. Next month I will draw one word a day and use it to grow my creative palette.


Ingredients for Inspire Box:


This wonderful DCWV cardstock spoke to me. I had to have it as my Inspiration Box cover. It speaks of all I hold dear. Family, Journeys, Adventures and so much more. How wonderful that it in itself is an inspiration.

My eCraft Cutting System was ready to take on the task of cutting out my one piece box.


I set the pressure to 3, No tabs, Cap on and cardstock stabilizer used.

Very quickly the box was cut and ready to be assembled. I used my favorite 3L Crafty Power Tape. I love the Super tack of this tape!

Next I put in the eyelet to make a catch for my beautiful little box.


I threaded in a small piece of cording to make a catch for the lid.

Next I used my fav Crafting Tool the I-Top 2 for my button cover brad!

I first place a inked dot with the word “Inspire” on the cover then covered it with sheer fabric.

I made the ribbon rosetta very easily.


I just hand sewed the edge and pulled and tied it to form a rosetta.


I then placed the button cover brad in the hole and placed it upon my little box.


Now for my new Beginning! I am ready to motivate myself into 2012’s best creative year ever!!!

I hope you will join me! Happy New Year to all and the hope for more to come!

I just want to share how lucky I am to have you in my life! as if not for Celeste and her encouragement I would have not had the courage to start my own blog. She kept telling me that I could do it and here I am!

I decided to create a lighted  gift box for Celeste’s Birthday Hop!

Happy Birthday to Celeste!

I am so fortunate that SVGcuts has such wonderful products. I saw their latest offering the “Love me Do” svg kit and I actually scrubbed my original project. I saw such great opportunities for creating more with Mary’s great insight. I took her candy box and made it my own “Birthday Cupcake Gift Box” it also doubles as a luminary after it has been emptied.

Mary’s design had a heart cut out on the front of the box. I decided to take it a step further and use a cupcake instead. It was a very simple task to add this cute svg and join them together. I put a sheet of opaque fabric inside so that you could put a light in the box and it would flick through like a candle was lit inside. I also applied a tag with a welded Happy Birthday svg from Miss Vickie’s.

I used baker’s twin to make the lucious icing on Celeste's cupcake. Don’t worry it is calorie free!


This was cut with my Craftwell’s eCraft cutting system.


I also designed a wall hanging to watch over your Birthday Dreams!

sweet dreams

These cute fabric characters were cut out on the eCraft cutting system using clip art. Ifsand then the Sun got his sweet face from Peach Keen Stamps. I know that they will watch over

Lastly I also decorated something for Celeste’s smaller friends.


I love how easily fabric can be cut with my cutter. I decorated this onsie with beautiful blossoms which snap off for washing or you could leave them on. I love playing with my machine,and I thank Celeste for all of the tips and techniques that you have shared with me.

One more time Happy Birthday to you!!!
