If you’re just starting your very own crafty journey, feel free to ask me anything. I have 19 years of craft design and technique to share
I love creating craft projects you can keep forever. I will never stop making cards, but they always end up in somebody’s draw and maybe looked at occasionally.
My projects are normally quite dark as I like to use black or dark blues then highlight the raised areas with mica powders or mattalic polishes.
On this mixed media project I used a light blue chalk paint and decoupage paper for the background.
I have been busy the past week with the children, shopping and everything else so have not had much time.
I wanted to send a thank you card to a friend, a male friend. I struggle with cards for men but luckily this friend love birds. Being elderly he doesn’t get out much so watches the birds from his window.
I check weekly that he is fine and when I made him a sandwich I put this card on top of it, put the sandwich in front of him then left before he opened it. He hates any mushy stuff, that’s why I got the hell out of there!
Hi, my name’s Taylor and I’m Chrissie’s oldest daughter (I’m 9)and I’m going to tell you some tales.
I made a candle on Thursday at brownies and I made a candle holder. I put glue on the glass cup and got some red tissue paper and I folded it and cut little dips. They kind of looked like little squares and I glued it down and then there was some yellow tissue paper and glued it on to it. Lastly I glued some black felt strips onto it for a cross but the PVA glue didn’t work on felt so the top bit fell off.
I really love crafting 💖✨
These hand decorated notebooks are a great little stocking filler that you can personalise with the recipients favourite colours or embellishments that match their personality.
You can pick up some notebooks from a lot of places on the high street and also the supermarkets.
Make sure the covers of your notebooks are sturdy enough to take what you want to create on them
Don’t forget the back of the notebook, I made sure the back cover had a matching theme to the front but with no heavy embellishments.
This first notebook I gave to my neighbor, just before she moved away. Being a very ‘girly girl’ and loving to shop for clothes, I used a lot of pink and added a dress for the main embellishment and a little perfume bottle. I added the buttons and ribbons for fun.
This note book I made for the living room coffee table. I love upcycling and viny pieces, so this notebook fits right in.
I used a script backing paper then made up the layers by stamping first, then heat embossing some vintage postal stamps. I added some embellishments, ribbon and some liquid pearls to finish.
