Good day! Today, I will share with you my masterpiece! Yes, it is my masterpiece as I made it all by hand. It took me 2 days to finish it and a total of 10 hours. If only I have a sewing machine :( Anyways, I am still proud of my work as this is the first time I made something like this. It is really out of my comfort zone ( same with the choker necklace), for I am a scrapbooker, not a painter, not a jewelry maker and not a pouch maker. I know, I am trying it all. But what can I do, crafting is so fun. Anyways, below are the steps on how I did my pouch. I used my spellbinder dies to be able to make this project. Happy looking!
Position your dies on your felt and roll it to your machine. I used 2 colors of felt (blue and purple). Cut total of 16 doily shapes.
Use a smaller die to cut a shape to be put on the center of your big doily. Repeat step 1
Position the small cut-out on top of the big cut-out.
Stitch the 2 cut-outs together. Alternate the colors.
Draw a square on the big doily/circle cut-out.
Start stitching two big doilies/circles, following the line.
Stitch a total of 8 doilies. Two rows, 4 on each row. Make sure you have two sets.
Cut a rectangle shape that when you fold would be the same size of your stitched doily.
Cut another rectangle shape, this time just 1/3 of the width of your first rectangle.
Attach the 2 rectangles by stitching it together and connect/stich the sides.
Stich the end of thin rectangle :)
On the end of the rectange, position the zipper.
Stitch the zipper.
Attach the doily on each side of the pouch. Stitch both sides and below. The top part would be left open to serve as a pocket.
My Handmade Pouch :)
Thank you for your time looking and I hope that I inspire you once again :) Happy crafting!
Good morning! Today, I would like to share with you a necklace I made out of paper and felt. Why these materials? Well, these are the available ones I have and I know that I need to make use of it. I hope you like it...
Apply gesso on the felt
After applying gesso, stick the paper on it.
Position the dies on the felt side and roll it to your machine. I used my Spellbinder dies to make my nacklace. Aren't they beautiful? :)
After rolling it to the machine, you will have the cut out pc ( you have to roll it a few times for it to comes out, otherwise you will have to help it by cutting using scissors)
Position the cut-outs according to the design that you want.
Punch holes to the connectors and put eyelets on it. Start connecting it using the jump rings.
Prepare your ribbon or chains to make a necklace.
You can get a pendant of unused brooch to add to your necklace. This flower is an earing.
Connect the ribbon or chain and the center piece for your necklace.
Add some beads or crystals.
Thank you for your time looking and I hope I inspire you today!
Good morning! Whew, I didn't notice how long it has been since I last posted. Not that I'd been lazy again. The truth was I was busy with so many things including my crafts. I did quite well last October and November creating. I tried painting and for a newbie I would say that I did a good job. Well, who else would love my work? Of course me! I am my first fan, ha ha ha :)) But seriously, it was so fun. Scrapbooking, drawing, painting, crafting, and I did my first necklace. Oh yeah, I am trying it all that I really have no time to blog. Though of course I would love you to see what I did. But will post them a bit later. Maybe you are thinking what made me post this time? Well, yesterday morning ( Dec. 12, 2012), I was browsing at Crate Paper blog and I saw their challenge about making ornaments. I was so inspired that I haven't thought of doing my own for our Christmas deco. So right away, I grabbed all my available materials and did what's exactly on my mind upon hearing the word "ornament".
Materials used:Papers - Crate Paper, Stickers - Crate Paper, Ribbons - Prima & American Crafts,
Tissue paper tube,
Chipboard (for the wings) and
I am really loving mixed media nowadays. They are so free and easy to do. You can just grab anything from your stash and tada! You have one art that is one of a kind. The one I am going to share with you now is another project I made which I will enter at Frosted Design challenge... Doily - this is my third take for that challenge as I honestly loving doilies as well.
Materials used:Canvass (Daiso); Patterned Paper (7Gypsies, Graphic45); Stamps ( Hot Off the Press, Tattered Angels); Ink ( Ranger Ink Archival, Stazon); Acrylic Paints (Studio, Kaiser); Mod Podge & Doily
Thanks for your time looking and have a great day!
Just want to share a layout I made using one of the new trends that a lot had been using lately... DOILY! Aren't they lovely? They are from different shapes and I am just so happy to have this heart shape doily which I adore so much.
I am so loving my She Said stamp from Unity Stamp. I have hundreds of stamps and I would say that I didn't waste my money on this one. I often use the stamps on this pack. I don't care if I use it over and over whether on my layout, cards or mixed media projects.
Though, this is the first time I used the girl image inside the pack as I often used the wordings. But then again, I just love it and now thinking to use it again.
Good day! Lately, I'd been addicted doing mixed media. I would say that I am liking it more than scrapbooking. Of course I still love scrapbooking... I still have tons of photos to scrap (fyi). It is just that, for me it is more relaxing. In what way? Well, I don't have to think too much. I don't have to think of what photo to put, what color should I use, what paper should I use to coordinate with my photo and etc. In mixed media, I just use anything... any color I pick, all the scrap papers that I am about to throw, my stamps that had been sitting inside my drawer for so long, my stencils and a lot more. So, yeah, I'd been doing a lot of it for the past 2 months. Though I try not to forget about scrapbook so I am still doing it, well at least a page in a month.
I just want to share this project I made. It took me only 20-30 minutes, but the drying took sometime for the crackle paint. On this project, I used most of my Ranger & Tim Holtz products. I find their products beautiful and interesting in so many ways. But I am not giving any justice to it as I can't seem to fit it to my photos for scrapbook. But will start using it now :).
Materials used:Canvass ( Daiso); Butterflies (Tim Holtz Paper Stash Kraft Resist); Stamps ( Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous - Stuff to say); Stencil ( Dylusions & TCW); Paint ( Kaiser); Stickles ( Ranger); Crackle Paint ( Ranger); Film Strip ( Tim Holtz)
Good day! I am so happy that my mom, sister and nephew visited us here in Singapore. They stayed here for a week. Guess what we did the most? Watch T.V.! Yeah, it's funny because they came here all the way from Philippines just to watch T.V. and we ate wanton noodles for the week! I feel like throwing up (oops sorry!). Anyways, while we were watching, I decided that I want to make something for my mom and sister. I forgot to take photo of the one I did for my sister.
I made this one on a canvass. It's a mixed media, so it would be easy for her to display it. I am happy that she loved it!
Just want to share a layout I made using Johanne's photo when he was around 3 years old. Thanks for looking.
