Frosty Festivities Christmas & Winter

A Winter Scene Triangle Ornament (With Template)

(This post is part of my Frosty Festivities 2015 Blog Event – see a list of all the posts HERE)

Here’s another Christmas Ornament to freshen up your festive decorations – a Winter Scene Triangle Ornament:

I want to make lots of these and fill them all with different scenes!

I have a PDF A4 Template which you can download HERE if you’d like to make your own (you will be prompted to download it, it doesn’t start automatically).

Here’s how to make your ornament. You may notice that the step-by-step photos show me using some woodgrain patterned paper as the ornament. That was my plan, until I made a mistake when it was nearly finished and ripped it – arrgghh! I will talk about that when I get to it. It turns out I actually prefer the blue card I ended up using, so it was okay!

Step 1: Print off your template and find some card or stiff patterned paper to use:

Step 2: Cut out the template and then the card just along the outer edges:

Step 3: Score along the fold lines – I just laid the template on top of the card and scored both sheets together, but you could draw the lines onto the card before scoring if you prefer:

You don’t need to put the template on top to score the tabs, just follow the edge:

Step 4: Use a sharp craft knife to cut out the window, again I just cut through both layers at once (using a metal ruler to keep my lines straight):

A Winter Scene Triangle Ornament (With Template) at Jennifer Grace Creates

Step 5: Pierce holes for your twine or thread to go through using a paper piercer or darning needle:

A Winter Scene Triangle Ornament (With Template) at Jennifer Grace Creates

Step 6: If you don’t like the pattern on the back of your patterned paper you can cut triangles from another pattern to stick inside – but don’t stick them both down yet:

A Winter Scene Triangle Ornament (With Template) at Jennifer Grace Creates

You need to adhere one of the flaps together first:

And then stick the patterned triangle on top to hide the tab:

Step 7: Cut the ‘snow’ from white card and fold the edges in at an angle. Now here’s where things started to go wrong. I used tape to stick my ‘snow’ into the ornament, but I should have used hot glue:

A Winter Scene Triangle Ornament (With Template) at Jennifer Grace Creates

The next steps are to stick on a tiny tree or any other images or stickers which you want in your scene, then close the ornament by taping down the other tabs (tape worked fine – a bit too well – for my tabs on the woodgrain paper, but not so well on the blue card – I ended up using glue on one tab as well as tape).

I did those steps, but then my snow fell out. I tried to stick the snow back in by pushing it back through the window, and then I ripped the edges of the window. Then I tried to undo the tape and ripped it some more… disaster! I gave up and swapped to some blue card, following all the steps above, but sticking the snow in with hot glue!

I did also cut a larger window, as I decided you couldn’t see enough of the scene. The template has been adjusted accordingly, so you will have the larger window on your ornament:

A Winter Scene Triangle Ornament (With Template) at Jennifer Grace Creates

Step 8: Back to scheduled programming – stick your snow in using hot glue or another really strong glue at the sides:

A Winter Scene Triangle Ornament (With Template) at Jennifer Grace Creates

Step 9: Stick a bit of cotton wool at the bottom to hide the gap and give more depth to the scene:

A Winter Scene Triangle Ornament (With Template) at Jennifer Grace Creates

Step 10: Add your tree and a character sticker or chipboard piece by hot gluing them to the front of the card snow:

A Winter Scene Triangle Ornament (With Template) at Jennifer Grace Creates

Step 11: Tape or glue the other tabs down so the ornament is closed, then use a darning needle to add some thread or twine to the top for hanging the ornament:

A Winter Scene Triangle Ornament (With Template) at Jennifer Grace Creates

Step 12: Glue any additions you want on the outside of the ornament. This is also when I added a bit of glue to the bottom tab as the tape kept coming undone:

A Winter Scene Triangle Ornament (With Template) at Jennifer Grace Creates

That’s it! Now you can hang your ornament. I’m thinking these would also look cool with a child’s drawing of a Christmas character inside instead of a sticker. I shall get Little Miss to design some!

Frosty Festivities Christmas & Winter

Exploring Brush Lettering – and some Free Christmas Printables!

(This post is part of my Frosty Festivities 2015 Blog Event – see a list of all the posts HERE)

Today I want to show you some experimenting I’ve been doing with brush lettering, plus I have some free Christmas printables for you!

Exploring Brush Lettering and Some Free Christmas Printables at Jennifer Grace Creates

I’ve been wanting to have a proper go at brush lettering for a while. If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen THIS PHOTO which I took a couple of months ago, trying to be a beta tester for a Molly Jacques Workshop on calligraphy and lettering. I wasn’t lucky enough to get chosen – no wonder as there was stiff competition! But that didn’t curb my interest. I have been devouring You Tube videos on brush lettering, like THIS ONE by Amy Tangerine, and THIS ONE by Kristina Werner, and I’ve been dreaming about taking THIS CLASS with Jen Schow, which I’m sure I will once I have more time!

In the meantime I searched around for some recommendations on pens / brushes for beginners to use, and that were not too expensive! I ended up buying Tombow Fudenosuke Pens in Hard and Soft, a Tombow Art Brush Pen in Sea Green, a Pentel Touch Brush Sign Pen, and a KUM Memory Point Paintbrush in Size 1:

Exploring Brush Lettering and Some Free Christmas Printables at Jennifer Grace Creates

My first trial was to write my blog name with each pen / brush. First I wrote it with my everyday non-joined up handwriting, then I attempted a more brush script style underneath:

Exploring Brush Lettering and Some Free Christmas Printables at Jennifer Grace Creates

I know from watching the videos mentioned above that one of the things to remember is to press down on the down-strokes, and lift up for a lighter line on the up-strokes, so I did that as best as I could. I’m sure that’s something I’ll get better at with lots more practice!

My next idea was to create a phrase, with a mix of writing styles – some of it being bold and straight, some being twirly and script-like. I wrote ‘Don’t get your tinsel in a tangle’ several times, each time improving my technique slightly – thinking about how close together the words were, and how to accentuate the two different writing styles:

Exploring Brush Lettering and Some Free Christmas Printables at Jennifer Grace Creates

It was fun to see how much my writing changed just by doing the same phrase several times!

Next I used the thin paintbrush to paint a merry poster which says ‘May your days be merry and bright, full of good cheer and all that is right’:

Exploring Brush Lettering and Some Free Christmas Printables at Jennifer Grace Creates

I was pretty happy with it as a first attempt, though I did realise afterwards that the large ampersand was in the wrong place – I should have practiced the layout on a spare piece of paper first. After I took the above photo I ended up going back and adding a smaller ampersand between the words merry and bright – I’m pretending the large one is decorative only!

I tried out a couple more phrases on the spare pieces of card which I had:

Exploring Brush Lettering and Some Free Christmas Printables at Jennifer Grace Creates

For all of these I was just writing on cheap white card which I buy from Poundland – I think you get 30 sheets for £1 and it’s pretty good quality.

That’s all the experimenting I’ve done so far, but I can’t wait to practice a bit more and hone my style.

I scanned in all the items I ended up with, so that you can use them as printables if you wish (personal use / gifts for friends only please!). Click HERE to download the PDF poster (you will be prompted to download, it doesn’t happen automatically).

May Your Days Be Merry Free Christmas Printable at Jennifer Grace Creates

And the smaller phrases are below – I played around with re-colouring a couple of them in Photoshop, which is another thing I need to practice more! Click HERE to download the PDF for these!

The white-on-red ‘tinsel in a tangle’ is my favourite!

DIY Christmas Gift Tea Towel and a Festive Card

(This post is part of my Frosty Festivities 2015 Blog Event – see a list of all the posts HERE)

Hello! Yesterday I posted a giveaway from the SVG Files Shop, you can enter to win 10 SVG files HERE {NOW CLOSED}! Today I’m back to show you a couple of things I’ve made with files from the store – a tea towel and a Christmas card.

First up is the DIY Christmas Gift Tea Towel:

DIY Christmas Gift Tea Towel at Jennifer Grace Creates

I used THIS Christmas Holidays file to cut some red iron-on-vinyl using my Cricut Explore, and ironed it on to a plain white tea towel. There are a couple of things I want to point out about the process…

When I uploaded the SVG into Cricut Design Space there was a plain white background around the image. This would be useful if I wanted to flatten and print the image, but I wanted to cut it, so I had to click the eye icon next to the white background on the layers panel – I’ve added a red arrow to the image below so you can see which one:

DIY Christmas Gift Tea Towel at Jennifer Grace Creates

Once the white background was gone there were still lots of different layers on the SVG, but I wanted it to all cut as one. So I clicked on the image, then clicked the ‘attach’ option from the top menu of the layers panel (again I’ve added a red arrow so you can see where to click):

DIY Christmas Gift Tea Towel at Jennifer Grace Creates

This leaves the image looking like this, and you are ready to click ‘go’ – and make sure you click the ‘mirror image for iron-on’ option if you are cutting from iron-on vinyl:

DIY Christmas Gift Tea Towel at Jennifer Grace Creates

I cut my image at just under 11.5″ wide. I’m not sure I’d want to cut this image any smaller than this, as some of the pieces were TINY, even when cutting it so large. I had to weed it very carefully and some of the little bits wouldn’t come out at all (like the details on the snowflakes):

DIY Christmas Gift Tea Towel at Jennifer Grace Creates

I ironed it on to the tea towel (putting a piece of greaseproof paper on top of course):

DIY Christmas Gift Tea Towel at Jennifer Grace Creates

Here’s what it looked like after ironing. The ornaments look like they are floating in space because the dots between them and the twirls above were too small to come out at all:

DIY Christmas Gift Tea Towel at Jennifer Grace Creates

So I just cut a couple of slivers of iron-on vinyl from the left over scraps, and used these to ‘hang’ the ornaments:

DIY Christmas Gift Tea Towel at Jennifer Grace Creates

I think it looks super stylish and was worth the effort! If you are gifting it to someone make sure you tell them it can be machine washed but on a low heat setting (I was at 40 degrees) and to only iron on the reverse!

DIY Christmas Gift Tea Towel at Jennifer Grace Creates

Next I used THIS Happy Holiday SVG file to make a Christmas Card:

Happy Holiday Christmas Card at Jennifer Grace Creates

Again the pieces were tiny, but I had cut the image quite small – 5.25″ tall. I was quite impressed that the Explore managed to cut it without ripping it to shreds, though I did manage to break a couple of bits off the wreath while I was taking it off the mat:

Happy Holiday Christmas Card at Jennifer Grace Creates

I stuck them on the card by turning the pieces upside down on a piece of scrap paper, and running my Herma repositionable tape runner over the top, before adhering them to the card:

Happy Holiday Christmas Card at Jennifer Grace Creates

The card really didn’t need much else, apart from matting it onto some pretty patterned paper and adding a few tiny gems on top:

A very delicate card for someone special!

Be Inspired:

Use iron-on-vinyl, fabric paint, or fabric ink-pads and stamps to decorate a tea towel

Make a monotone project eg. just red and white

Put a wreath around the edge of a project with a sentiment in the center

Do you think all these fiddly details make the projects look extra special?

What’s The Fuss Layout with Shrink Plastic Embellishments

(This post is part of my Frosty Festivities 2015 Blog Event – see a list of all the posts HERE)

I’m sorry there was no post yesterday. My son’s ill, just a cough and a cold, but he’s been off school with it and waking up a lot during the night, so after a few exhausting days it was time for a day away from blogging! We spent yesterday recuperating and he’s doing a bit better today. So I’m back with another festive project for you, this time it’s a layout with some shrink plastic embellishments…

What's The Fuss Layout with Shrink Plastic Embellishments at Jennifer Grace Creates

This page is about how my son didn’t really get what all the fuss was about in advance of Christmas 2013… he’s certainly excited for Xmas 2015 though!

Can you spot which ones are the shrink plastic embellishments? It’s the little line of trees on the journal card!

I made them using the Clearly Kelly ‘Noel’ stamp set. I figured they went well with my page, but I couldn’t stamp them straight onto the busy background, so I went looking for something else to stamp them onto:

What's The Fuss Layout with Shrink Plastic Embellishments at Jennifer Grace Creates

I found a sheet of white shrink plastic (the brand I used was Shrinkles). I wanted to stamp a gold tree, but I didn’t have a good gold ink pad, so I tried colouring the image with a Metallic Gold pen from Staedtler, before stamping it onto the ROUGH side of the shrink plastic:

What's The Fuss Layout with Shrink Plastic Embellishments at Jennifer Grace Creates

Note the green underneath the plastic – it’s a piece of felt which I used to try and give a better impression of the stamped image.

Unfortunately it didn’t come out that well the first time. But it wasn’t because the felt didn’t work – it was because the ink had dried too much on the side I’d coloured first – maybe because I had stopped to take a photo of the coloured-in stamp! Here’s what the first layer looked like:

What's The Fuss Layout with Shrink Plastic Embellishments at Jennifer Grace Creates

I coloured the stamp just on the one side which needed more coverage, and stamped again on top of the first image:

What's The Fuss Layout with Shrink Plastic Embellishments at Jennifer Grace Creates

It was slightly out of alignment but I decided I quite liked the effect!

I stamped the same tree again, using black StazOn ink (I didn’t end up using this tree on the layout):

What's The Fuss Layout with Shrink Plastic Embellishments at Jennifer Grace Creates

Next I attempted to colour the stamp again, but I made a big mistake. I tried to use ProMarkers. Don’t do this! The stamped image was really faint and I stained my stamp. Lose-lose. Oh well, we live and learn:

What's The Fuss Layout with Shrink Plastic Embellishments at Jennifer Grace Creates

I cleaned the stamp and used it again, with green pigment ink this time. But some of the pink ProMaker, which wouldn’t come off when I was cleaning the stamp, did come off on the stamped image:

What's The Fuss Layout with Shrink Plastic Embellishments at Jennifer Grace Creates

Again I quite liked the accidental effect!

Finally I stamped the little tree using red pigment ink:

What's The Fuss Layout with Shrink Plastic Embellishments at Jennifer Grace Creates

I cut out the four colourful trees and used Staedtler pencils to add some red and blue to the black tree:

What's The Fuss Layout with Shrink Plastic Embellishments at Jennifer Grace Creates

Then I shrunk them in the oven according to the manufacturer instructions. Here’s how they looked when they came out – I left the colouring pencils in the photo so you can see how much they shrunk:

What's The Fuss Layout with Shrink Plastic Embellishments at Jennifer Grace Creates

I decided the black, red, and blue one didn’t really match my page, but the others look really cute all lined up on the journal card:

What's The Fuss Layout with Shrink Plastic Embellishments at Jennifer Grace Creates

Another thing I did on this page was to cut some stars from the background pattern to use on foam dots (I got the idea to do this from a card on the Basic Grey blog HERE):

What's The Fuss Layout with Shrink Plastic Embellishments at Jennifer Grace Creates

When adding them back on to the layout I made sure they overlapped something on at least one edge, so they stand out as well as blending in!

What's The Fuss Layout with Shrink Plastic Embellishments at Jennifer Grace Creates

The cream enamel dots and white painted wood veneers were added as an afterthought, as I decided the page looked too dark with all that wood.

Be Inspired:

Stamp some images then cut them out to use as embellishments

Cut an image from a background sheet to use at the front of the project too

Cut a photo or patterned paper piece so that it’s tall and skinny

Have you ever used shrink plastic to make embellishments before?

Snow Scene In A Bottle Necklace

(This post is part of my Frosty Festivities 2015 Blog Event – see a list of all the posts HERE)

Here’s another wintry item of jewellery you can keep for yourself or gift to a friend… a Snow Scene In A Bottle Necklace!

Snow Scene In A Bottle Necklace

My daughter wanted to buy these little (just under 2″ tall) glass craft jars from The Works, and they were only £1 for 6. I told her she could have 3 and I’d have 3! I was trying to think what to do with mine when I came across a tutorial for a tree-in-a-bottle necklace at The 36th Avenue HERE. I knew I had to make one, but with an addition of a little lamp post, so it reminds me of the The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe (one of my favourite books and films).

Here’s the bits and pieces I gathered. I also ended up using an advanced craft glue, some Mod Podge, and some wire cutters (all not pictured):

Snow Scene In A Bottle Necklace

The little bottle-tree is from a cake decorating supply shop, so that’s a good place to look if you can’t find a small one.

Here’s how to make your necklace…

Step 1: Use wire cutters to cut the tree to the correct height:

Snow Scene In A Bottle Necklace

Step 2: Drop a blob of hot glue into the base of the bottle, and stick the tree into it. Use a wooden kebab stick to help apply the glue if your glue gun hasn’t got a long enough nozzle:

Snow Scene In A Bottle Necklace

Step 3: Make your lamp post, using tiny bits of black Fimo. I made a post and a ‘hat’ to fit on either side of a sparkly bead. Once the Fimo parts are made bake them in the oven according to the instructions on the packet – don’t bake the bead:

Snow Scene In A Bottle Necklace

Step 4: Carefully add another blob of glue into the base of the jar. I ended up using the Advanced Craft Glue (Beacon 3-in-1) for this, as I couldn’t get the hot glue in without getting it on the glass and the tree. Stick your lamp post in:

Snow Scene In A Bottle Necklace

I would use a small bead next time, as this one was quite big which kind-of pushes the tree to one side. It looks okay, I’d just choose more carefully next time!

Step 5: I dripped a bit of Mod Podge into the jar, and tipped in some glitter and seed beads for a snowy base. I’m not sure I’d use Mod Podge next time, again it was hard getting it in without getting it down the glass, and there is some glitter suck to the glass in a few places. Next time I might just put the glitter in loose so it shakes around:

Snow Scene In A Bottle Necklace

Step 6: Screw an eyelet into the top of the cork:

Snow Scene In A Bottle Necklace

Step 7: Use a strong glue to put around the base of the cork, before pushing it into the jar to seal it:

Snow Scene In A Bottle Necklace

Step 8: Add a chain and clasp:

Snow Scene In A Bottle Necklace

Now you can wear or gift your snow scene in a bottle necklace:

Snow Scene In A Bottle Necklace

Magical isn’t it?!

Be Inspired:

Put a Christmas tree next to a lamp post for a snowy scene

Create an ornament or item of jewellery inside a glass or clear plastic object

Add some sparkly beads to a project

Would you gift this or keep it for yourself? What would you put in your bottle?

It’s time for another sponsored giveaway {NOW CLOSED} from a fun-filled Etsy shop…

A Giveaway! Sponsored by Feed Your Craft!

Feed Your Craft is an Etsy Shop owned by the amazing Elise (aka Lil Gik), who I’ve known online for a while since we met on the Two Peas In A Bucket forums (I miss those!). The shop is filled with lots and lots of fun flair (105 different sets!), which are mini-flair – only 7/8″ in diameter. Plus there are a few other cute embellishments too – they’ll be releasing a limited edition ‘Let It Snow’ mini kit later today!

Read on for the chance to win a $15 coupon code to spend at the Feed Your Craft shop!

A Giveaway! Sponsored by Feed Your Craft!

Some of the flair sets are designed by Brandi Kincaid, and they have some lovely unique illustrations on them!

Here’s a few items that go well with the Frosty Festivities theme…

1. Let It Snow Full Colour Mini Flair Badges – This is one of the sets designed by Brandi, and the characters are just so adorable! Look at the little mouse with his ‘Baby it’s cold outside’ banner! The gingerbread house is perfect too, and this set is available in 3 different colourways (you can buy it without colour on the background – only the icons, or without any colour at all) so it can suit any project you are working on:

A Giveaway! Sponsored by Feed Your Craft!

2. Dear Santa Mini Flair Badges – The flair by Elise are perfect, I especially like the ‘Dear Santa, I can explain’ one as I’m sure I could use that on a layout about my cheeky children! The one with Santa’s belt on is fabulous and bold too. Plus I like the simple red & white colour scheme:

A Giveaway! Sponsored by Feed Your Craft!

3. Ring It In Mini Flair Badges – Here’s another set by Brandi which you can purchase in different colourways. This link is for the set without any colour at all, but you can check out the others! I like this set having no colour, as I’ve no idea what colours will be in the photos I’ll be taking on New Years Eve (we’re going to a friend’s house for a party this year), and this set would suit anything! I love the clock with ‘midnight’ squeezed inside:
