I’ve become addicted to using the Eclipse Technique for decor. I recently ordered the Large Letters Framelits (141712) just so I could play with this technique, and now I am in love! Prior to this I only had the Large Numbers Framelits, so I made a New Year’s card using the Eclipse Technique. It turned out super cute and I was hooked, but the number dies certainly limited my creativity. So, I invested in the alphabet dies too. Yes, this is a high dollar item, but oh so worth it! I have loved everything I have used this die set for, and have only scratched the surface of the possibilities!
My first attempt at the Eclipse Technique for decor was a gift for a baby shower. Sometimes I have an idea for a project in my head and once I begin working on it, it changes to something different. But THIS project turned out exactly as I had pictured it in my head. It was all I had hoped it would be, and was relatively easy to do. This is a before and after picture of this makeover.
Then I got this other Idea in my head. I had been “saving” this designer series paper for just the right project. (Sometimes it is so hard to make the first cut of that beautiful paper, but I am getting better at this!) . This project also turned out exactly as I had pictured it…and I LOVE it! Plus, it only took me about 30 minutes to create. Yay!
I cannot wait to use this technique for more projects…including Christmas cards! And, of course, I will definitely be using the Eclipse Technique for decor again soon. (I have this dinosaur idea rolling around in my head, so it will probably be next.)
I hope these projects have inspired you. Now go create something fun! And if you have considered investing in the Large Letter Framelits, I would definitely recommend them!
