Hi hi! Today I have something a little different for you all: instructions on how I made my 2-level turntable! This is really useful in your craft space, especially in a corner or if you do not have a lot of room.
All materials were bought from Action (discount store in Europe), except for the mounting glue, but you can also buy this from Action. This DIY project is really easy and took about 40 minutes to make. The glue takes a few days to a week or more to fully cure, but you can start using the turntable after day.
I think butterflies are really beautiful and I asked myself, “Why is that?” I think it is because butterflies are so symmetrical and people are generally attracted to things that are symmetrical. But I’m also a very analytical and have a scientific mind set.
The technique for today is “die cut monoprint”. Using this technique, I created two cards witht he butterfly monoprints, but you can also use the prints for a scrapbook or art journal. This easy technique takes about 15-20 minutes and the two cards took over an hour to make. Continue reading “Butterflies make everything beautiful!”→
Another miniature for you to look at… and perhaps inspire! Last time I made a little house in a tin box. This time it is a music dome with a café and appartment.
This was super fun to do and I didn’t do anything too special. I followed about 98% of the instructions because I find it relaxing to just follow the kit’s instructions and not need to think too much. From start to finish, this kit took 4 days to finish. It was also a bit more difficult than my last miniature kit, but not by a lot. Continue reading “Look for a Star – Miniature music dome”→
It is now the 6th month of 2019, time flies, doesn’t it? Stencils are a crafting supply that can be used with many techniques. They are also inexpensive or you could make them yourself! Today I will let you see one of the many techniques you can use with stencils. Let’s check out the card.
Hello dear people! Nice of you to drop by my blog!
So, what is better than one card? Two cards! In this blog post, I will show you one way how I made two cards with one background paper. My cards took about three hours to make all two, but it would be less time if you made something simpler (or with less embellishments….) Continue reading “Double the happiness!”→
Hello my dear crafters! How are you doing? Last week on May 10th is my wedding anniversary! We had a really nice evening going out to eat at a super-classy restaurant. It was a surprise for my husband!
This is a baby book on shapes that I made from felt. I thought it was not difficult to make, but it is a lot of work. It took a few hours, and that does not include a night for the glue to dry. Continue reading “A felt baby book”→
Hi everyone, how are you all doing? I’m doing well and I’m happy to share with you all my new hobby! Did you know that I built a house with a garden in 5 days time? Check it out!
Did you think that I made a real house for humans? That would be cool, but not in five day’s time, hahaha. My new hobby is miniature making. I worked with a DIY kit that I found on Ali Express. There are many different kinds of kits, but this particular kit is from the Box Theatre series “Countryside notes”. This small project took a few hours each day for 5 days and is rather easy if you have the patience for crafting itsy-bitsy things. Continue reading “A little house for Harry and Bella”→
Spring is my favorite season! Mother nature is awake and making herself beautiful. Today I made a spring cake for you all!
Did you think I made a real cake? Haha, I’m not really good at baking, so nope! So today is actually a pop-up card with small daisies on a grassy green paper cake. This card was not difficult to make since my Cricut did most of the work and I had very clear video instructions on putting the cake together. You can also use other cutting machines other than the Cricut, but even without a machine, you can print out this pattern and cut it out by hand. The total time to make this card was a little under one hour. Continue reading “Pop-up Cake Card!”→
As promised in my inexpensive stamp and die storage post, I will show and explain how I organize my dies. Before I get into it, I want to explain a little of its background.
I wanted a system that allowed me to organize all my stamps and dies in a way that I can also add on to my collection, as well as switch or remove things in between without having to change the rest of the system. I also wanted to be able to easily search for exactly what I need without rummaging through my growing collection. Essentially, I needed a system similar to the Dewey Decimal Classification (but a lot more simplified) and a digital catalogue.
After months of thinking, I finally came up with a system and I’m happy to share with you all how I do it. My system makes it easy to search and find exactly what I need! Without further ado, here’s how I organize my stamps and dies (as well as some other craft things). Continue reading “Organizing my craft stuff with Evernote”→
