I’ve decided to make the move to a self hosted blog so I can have more control over the look and feel of allthingshandmade.org.
For anyone who has subscribed by email then you don’t need to do anything, you will still receive notifications of new posts by email. It’s all my lovely wordpress.com followers that will miss out and I’m hoping that you will all visit my new site and re-subscribe so you don’t miss anything.
I hope to see you all on the other side and thank you for your continued support.
I wanted to share with you this Rainbow Love Heart Card Collection I have just made and Listed on my Etsy Shop. I’d love to know what you think and I’ve got more coming soon…
After making the Christening Invites last weekend and using 3D butterflies within the design, it inspired me to make this 3D butterfly heart picture.
I made this 3D picture using:
1 8×8″ deep box frame
Approx 60 card butterflies
1x brown card for backing
I cut the butterflies using my dye cutting machine, you can cut them by hand using a stencil, it just takes a little longer……. it literally takes 2 mins on a cutting machine
I cut the backing card to fit the box frame and used a stencil to draw a love heart onto the centre of the page.
Using double-sided tape I arranged and fixed the butterflies within the heart stencil, sticking some flat and the rest folded with one wing stuck down to create the 3D effect.
I’ve got 2 more deep box frames that I will use to create a similar effect but instead of white plain butterflies I will cut them out of old book pages and maps………. I’ll update you with these later!!
My cousin’s gorgeous baby is being christened next month and I’ve been busy making the Christening Invites today. I made them using my Cricut cutting machine and finished them off with a pink ribbon.
I thought I’d share some of the photos with you…
I was searching on Twitter yesterday and came across a cute free crochet design for a Peter Pan collar. This also lead me to a great website called The Making Spot which contains lots of fantastic craft designers, ideas, free crochet patterns and lots more.
I thought I’d share with you a couple of free crochet jewellery designs that I came across today, I’m definitely going to start by making this cute peter Pan collar designed by Carol Meldrum.
