Cardmaking

An Easter Bunny Shaped Card

Today I’ve another video for you (I seem to be on a video kick right now, but I’m sure I’ll calm down eventually)! This one is a tutorial on how to make an Easter bunny shaped card using the Cricut Explore. If you don’t have an Explore machine you can try to find a bunny silhouette to draw around and cut out instead!

I say this is for an Easter bunny card, but of course you could use it for other occasions too by changing the sentiment inside. It would make a cute welcome baby card for example!

Here’s the video showing you how to put it together:

What do you think? I’m in love with the bunny’s bow, it makes him look so dapper:

Will you be sending out any cards this Easter? If yes do you make them yourself or buy them?

Don’t you want to sit and make lots of pom-poms now? No? Just me then!

Happy Monday!

Rainbow Feathers (Cut With A Cricut Explore) Card And Bookmark Set

Last week I shared how I’ve been using Amy Tangerine’s Creative Handbook (if you missed it see my post HERE). The 3rd practice includes a place to stick inspiring images, and I’d printed some projects I wanted to try from my Pinterest boards. One of the images I printed out was of THIS CARD by RobynRW at the Studio Calico gallery. The main thing I loved about it was the rainbow coloured feathers, so I took this inspiration to make my own…

And I put them to good use on a card and bookmark set!

Here’s how to make your own…

Step 1: Cut out a bunch of feathers using a manual or electronic die-cutter (or however else you can). I used my Cricut Explore with images #M119F95 and #M37FE9, duplicating them and resizing so that I had a nice selection (the largest feather is 5½” tall). I also changed them all to black so they’d cut at the same time, and I cut them all from white American Crafts cardstock on the cardstock+1 setting:

Feathers in the Cricut Explore Design Space

Step 2: Peel the feathers from your mat and gather some ink pads in red, pink, yellow, green, and blue. You also need an ink blending tool (or foam make-up sponges work too) and something to protect your work surface (a non-stick craft mat is best but you could use some scrap papers as long as the ink won’t bleed out of the paper):

Step 3: Ink your feathers! Work in the order red, pink, yellow, green blue, using one colour on all the feathers before you go onto a new colour:

DIY Embellishments Rainbow Feathers Cut With The Cricut Explore at Jennifer Grace Creates

Step 4: Now would be a really good time to clean your mat. I didn’t and I ended up picking up blue ink off the mat onto my fingers, and smudging it onto the other colours in the feathers. Doh. You can’t see it unless you look quite closely so I’ll live with it! You can also add a little more colour if you feel like any sections are too pale – I went over the pink section another time before I was happy with them:

DIY Embellishments Rainbow Feathers Cut With The Cricut Explore at Jennifer Grace Creates

Step 5: Leave them to dry completely. You don’t want to be smudging ink or transferring ink to book pages from a bookmark!

Once they are completely dry you could put them aside as embellishments to use on a rainy day… or you could go right ahead and use them on a card and bookmark set:

Step 6: Find a 7×5″ card blank. Cut a piece of smooth white card to 4⅝” x 6¾”. Put a line of adhesive (I used double-sided tape) across the white card, approx 1½” from the top. Stick some feathers along the line, alternating the sizes of feathers you use:

Step 7: Cover up the adhesive with some glitter tape and/or ribbon:

Step 8: Stitch a border around the white card, stamp your greeting above the ribbon, and adhere the white card to the card blank:

DIY Embellishments Rainbow Feathers Cut With The Cricut Explore at Jennifer Grace Creates

Step 8: To make a matching bookmark, cut out a bookmark shape from white card (I used image #M42BFC ‘long simple tag’ in the Cricut Design Space, cut at 6″ tall, 2″ wide). Put a feather on the front and hold it in place with low-tack tape at the top and bottom, while you stitch random lines across the feather:

Step 9: Adhere the white bookmark shape to a slightly larger bookmark shape cut from teal patterned paper (the Cricut image cuts both parts). Use in a book or pop it in the card as a gift:

Home Decor Craft Projects

DIY Embroidery Hoop With A Photo (including a free pattern for the frame)

Today I’m sharing a cute home decor project. This DIY embroidery hoop has colours and a photo that are perfect for spring and Easter, but you could adapt them to suit any time of year!

Read on for details on how to put one together, and for a free printable pattern for the frame…

DIY Embroidery Hoop With A Photo (including a free pattern for the frame) at Jennifer Grace Creates

I was inspired to make this by one of the classes at Big Picture Classes (see my review of their new website HERE) – there’s a class called Made With Love by Meghan Hoeppner which is about making beautiful gifts. One of the lessons is to fill embroidery hoops. Mine didn’t turn out anything like Meghan’s but that’s where my inspiration sprang from!

Here’s how to make your own…

Step 1: First print off this free pattern HERE (you’ll be prompted to download), which will give you a template for the embroidered frame. You are welcome to use this for personal AND professional use, just please credit me where you can:

Frame Embroidery Pattern Free Printable at Jennifer Grace Creates

Step 2: Print the pattern off (onto transfer paper if you’re using that), and find an embroidery hoop (mine is an 8″ hoop) and a piece of linen or other fabric to embroider onto:

DIY Embroidery Hoop With A Photo (including a free pattern for the frame) at Jennifer Grace Creates

Step 3: Use your preferred method to transfer the pattern to your material (HERE are a few ways to transfer the design). I taped my pattern, and then my fabric, onto a window to trace it:

DIY Embroidery Hoop With A Photo (including a free pattern for the frame) at Jennifer Grace Creates

You can use a sharp pencil to draw the design onto the linen:

DIY Embroidery Hoop With A Photo (including a free pattern for the frame) at Jennifer Grace Creates

Step 4: Undo your embroidery hoop, put your material with the design on inside, and close it up again to pull the material taut. Find some embroidery threads to use with your design:

DIY Embroidery Hoop With A Photo (including a free pattern for the frame) at Jennifer Grace Creates

Step 5: Find something relaxing to listen to or watch while you embroider!

I stitched all my lines with a simple backstitch, as that’s about the extent of my embroidering ability, but if you can do anything fancier, go for it! One thing to note is that you need quite small stitches on the hearts, so that when you go around the curves they look smooth:

DIY Embroidery Hoop With A Photo (including a free pattern for the frame) at Jennifer Grace Creates

Step 6: Finish off the back of the embroidery hoop. If you are giving it as a gift, selling it, or just really want it to last forever, then THIS is an excellent way to finish the hoop off. But I hadn’t left myself a big enough margin of material to do this, and as I’m keeping it myself I just went for the trimming-off-the-excess-material method.

This isn’t advised as it makes it impossible to take out the material and wash it, or just re-stretch it if it starts to go saggy, and if the material starts to fray it may fray round to the edge of the hoop. I tried to at least fend off this last problem by sealing the edges of the material with a little PVA glue:

DIY Embroidery Hoop With A Photo (including a free pattern for the frame) at Jennifer Grace Creates

Step 7: Create some words to stick onto your design -you could use alpha stickers or die-cut words. I used my Cricut Explore to create the words ‘just wandering’, using the Chalkboard Fonts – Condensed font for ‘just’, and the Songbird font for ‘wandering’ (for this word I also moved the letters closer together and then welded them):

DIY Embroidery Hoop With A Photo (including a free pattern for the frame) at Jennifer Grace Creates

When they were cut from pink and teal papers they were so small and delicate:

So I used my Xyron 150 to cover the backs with adhesive:

DIY Embroidery Hoop With A Photo (including a free pattern for the frame) at Jennifer Grace Creates

Step 8: Stick these, and your photo, onto your hoop design (I used double-sided tape all over the back of my photo to adhere it). I placed all the items gently onto the front, then flipped the hoop over to press down from the back to make sure they were nicely stuck:

DIY Embroidery Hoop With A Photo (including a free pattern for the frame) at Jennifer Grace Creates

Step 9: Add any finishing touches. I decided it needed one little extra at the top left, to balance out where the word ‘wandering’ is longer at the bottom right. So I added a flower-shaped brad from my stash:

That’s it, you’ve made something pretty!

Have you ever tried embroidery? I feel like I want to try lots more now… I might start adding to some clothes belonging to Little Miss!

I’m including this post in the Creative Mondays Blog Hop Linky Party.

Have a great day,

Sparkly Seahorse Earrings with the Cricut Explore

Ever wanted some sparkly seahorse earrings?!

I love big earrings, but I have a habit of losing one from each pair… oops. So I decided it was time to make some to replenish my collection – and so that I can easily replace one if I lose it! I’ve put my Cricut Explore to good use to make these…

Sparkly Seahorse Earrings made with the Cricut Explore:

Here’s how to make some for yourself…

You Will Need:

* Cricut Explore * Aqua Cardstock * Crystal Stickles * Transparent Seed Beads * Jump Rings * Earring Hooks * Mod-Podge * Glossy Accents * Paintbrush * Jewellery Pliers *

Step 1: Open up the Cricut Design Space and insert image Seahorse #M33006 from the ‘Life’s A Beach’ set. Resize it to however big you want yours to be – I made mine 2.5″ tall:

Sparkly Seahorse Earrings with the Cricut Explore at Jennifer Grace Creates

Step 2: Use your mouse to drag a box over the image to select it all:

Sparkly Seahorse Earrings with the Cricut Explore at Jennifer Grace Creates

Step 3: Click ‘Weld’ in the layers panel to join the layers together as one shape:

Sparkly Seahorse Earrings with the Cricut Explore at Jennifer Grace Creates

Step 4: Insert image Circle #MC21B7 from the Days & Dates set, resize it to be a small hole at the top of the seahorse – mine was 0.07″:

Sparkly Seahorse Earrings with the Cricut Explore at Jennifer Grace Creates

Step 5: Drag a box over the image again so the seahorse and the circle are included:

Sparkly Seahorse Earrings with the Cricut Explore at Jennifer Grace Creates

Step 6: Click ‘Slice’ on the layers panel, then drag the circle away from the seahorse, which will leave the hole at the top:

Sparkly Seahorse Earrings with the Cricut Explore at Jennifer Grace Creates

Step 7: Delete the circle, then duplicate the seahorse. Use the edit panel to ‘Mirror’ the second seahorse image:

Sparkly Seahorse Earrings with the Cricut Explore at Jennifer Grace Creates

Step 8: Drag a box over both images and click ‘Attach’ in the layers panel. Then click ‘Go’ and increase the projects to 4 – don’t forget to click ‘Apply’. Your mat preview should look like this:

Sparkly Seahorse Earrings with the Cricut Explore at Jennifer Grace Creates

Step 9: Put some cardstock on your mat and run the cut. I used a sheet of cardstock from the Cricut Antiquity pad, and I used the setting ‘Cardstock +1’, my seahorses came out like this:

Sparkly Seahorse Earrings with the Cricut Explore at Jennifer Grace Creates

I was impressed with how well the teeny tiny holes came out:

Sparkly Seahorse Earrings with the Cricut Explore at Jennifer Grace Creates

Step 10: Put one of the seahorses on a non-stick surface and coat it with Mod-Podge or similar tacky glue – make sure it’s a nice even coating right up to the edges:

Sparkly Seahorse Earrings with the Cricut Explore at Jennifer Grace Creates

Step 11: Stick another seahorse on top, picking it up and pressing down all over it to make sure it sticks together. Repeat this until you have four seahorses stuck on top of each other. Then seal the edges with more Mod-Podge all the way around – here you can see where I’d sealed the belly but I hadn’t sealed the head yet:

Sparkly Seahorse Earrings with the Cricut Explore at Jennifer Grace Creates

Step 12: Leave the Mod-Podge to dry – I left mine for a few hours. Then paint on a layer of Crystal Stickles to give the seahorses some sparkle:

Sparkly Seahorse Earrings with the Cricut Explore at Jennifer Grace Creates

Once they are dry (it took mine about an hour) they will be nice and shimmery:

Sparkly Seahorse Earrings with the Cricut Explore at Jennifer Grace Creates

Step 13: Add a blob of glossy accents along the fins and at the end of the tails:

Sparkly Seahorse Earrings with the Cricut Explore at Jennifer Grace Creates

And press transparent seed beads into the glossy accents. Leave to dry again (mine took about 2 hours):

Sparkly Seahorse Earrings with the Cricut Explore at Jennifer Grace Creates

Step 14: Then you just need to use jewellery pliers to attach two jump rings and an earring hook to the top of each seahorse:

Sparkly Seahorse Earrings with the Cricut Explore at Jennifer Grace Creates

Then wear your sparkly seahorses (and dream that you are a mermaid):

Sparkly Seahorse Earrings with the Cricut Explore at Jennifer Grace Creates

I am now planning to make lots more earrings with my Explore. Owls, feathers, rocket-ships, hearts… so many possibilities!

Happy Valentines day to those who celebrate it!

Have a great day,

Scrapbook Layouts

Celebrate Today Layout – Using New Stash Like A Kit

I mentioned in my last post that I’d received a new box of goodies (items I bought in the Hey Little Magpie sale). I was itching to use them, so I decided to treat my new stash like a scrapbooking kit when creating my next layout. Here’s the page I ended up with…

Celebrate Today:

Celebrate Today layout at Jennifer Grace Creates

Here’s the supplies I started with. It included a selection of 12×12 papers, a MME Record It 8×10 Word Art pack and some Now & Then enamel shapes, a Webster’s Pages 6×6 Hello World paper pad, a Blazer Designs Stripes stencil, some Jillibean Soup Wood Nickels and Birthday stamps, and some Pink Paislee Sentiment Series stamps:

Celebrate Today layout at Jennifer Grace Creates

I chose the Fancy Pants As You Wish ‘Celebrate’ 12×12 paper because I could use the words on the paper for my title, and because I had a portrait orientation photo that fitted in quite nicely. I then pulled out a few Hello World 6×6 papers that went with my photo – the Hello World collection is themed as a newborn baby & early childhood collection but most of it is just sweet, and can be used for a variety of projects:

Celebrate Today layout at Jennifer Grace Creates

I snipped a few items from the cut-apart sheets, and used my Martha Stewart Pinking Circle Punch to punch a few pieces from the other sheet of paper – one side of the paper says ‘happy little moments’ and the other side is patterned with blue stars:

Celebrate Today layout at Jennifer Grace Creates

I used the ‘Stripes’ template to add some grey paint at the top right and bottom left of my page. Because I just held it down with washi, rather than spraying on temporary adhesive like I normally do, it ended up messier than I like. But I decided I could live with it!

Celebrate Today layout at Jennifer Grace Creates

I wanted to stamp one of the Pink Paislee hexagon stamps onto the background. I don’t have any good white ink pads, so I knew I’d have to heat emboss it. I used Versamark ink and white embossing powder. But my first attempt went horribly wrong:

Celebrate Today layout at Jennifer Grace Creates

You couldn’t properly read any of it! So I gave that one up as a failure, and instead I stamped and heat-embossed a couple of times in the space where my photo would be going later:

Celebrate Today layout at Jennifer Grace Creates

Then I used a craft knife to cut the best one of these out, to use as an embellishment on top of the failed stamped area:

Celebrate Today layout at Jennifer Grace Creates

Next I splattered some Mister Huey Opaque White and Heidi Swapp Gold Mists across the bottom left and top right of the page:

Celebrate Today layout at Jennifer Grace Creates

I left it to dry for a couple of days, but the white mist still wasn’t properly dry, as I discovered when I wiped my hand across it. I decided to wipe in a few directions, so the white dots looked like shining stars instead:

Celebrate Today layout at Jennifer Grace Creates

I had smudged a bit of paint when I used the stencil:

Celebrate Today layout at Jennifer Grace Creates

So I moved one of the punched paper circles to cover this up:

Celebrate Today layout at Jennifer Grace Creates

I adhered my photo and papers in place, added some journaling on another cut-apart card, did a bit of sewing with a sewing machine, and added some of the wood nickels, the enamel shapes, and some gems from my stash:

Celebrate Today layout at Jennifer Grace Creates

A lot of people would have left it at this point, but I decided the top left and bottom right corners were too empty for me. So I used my Cricut Explore to cut a couple of ‘Swirl Layered Photo Corners’ (#M43A3D) out of more of the 6×6 papers. I added a couple more gems around them too:

Celebrate Today layout at Jennifer Grace Creates

Then my page was finished! Here’s a few close-ups of the completed layout…

It’s quite fun and I’m very glad to have busted into the new stash straight away, no hoarding for me!

Have you ever used a box of new goodies like a kit before? What do you think of the smudged white mist dots – do they look like stars or just a mess?!

Have a great Monday!

Christmas Tree Treat Box using the Cricut Explore

(This post is part of my Frosty Festivities 2014 Blog Event – see the beginning HERE!)

For this project I’m sharing a small treat box I made with the Cricut Explore:

Christmas Tree Treat Box using the Cricut Explore at Jennifer Grace Creates

This is so darn cute. It’s about 2.5″ tall, a perfect size to fill with some sweet treats!

Here’s how to make one…

Step 1: Load up the Cricut Design Space and create a new project. Insert the image ‘Christmas Tree Box’ #M2E593, and drag a corner toggle to make it approx 11.5″ lengthways:

Christmas Tree Treat Box using the Cricut Explore at Jennifer Grace Creates

Step 2: Insert the image ‘Christmas Tree’ #M2E583, and change it to red. Insert the image ‘Present’ #M3097B:

Christmas Tree Treat Box using the Cricut Explore at Jennifer Grace Creates

Step 3: Hide the tag on the present, and change the colours of the box and ribbon to the colours you like:

Christmas Tree Treat Box using the Cricut Explore at Jennifer Grace Creates

Step 4: Click ‘flatten’ in the layers panel, to change the present to a shape that will print-then-cut:

Christmas Tree Treat Box using the Cricut Explore at Jennifer Grace Creates

Step 5: Shape the Christmas Tree and Present to the sizes you want, then click ‘go’. Don’t forget to put a score tool into the machine to make it easier to fold the lines of the box:

Christmas Tree Treat Box using the Cricut Explore at Jennifer Grace Creates

Step 6: Follow the on-screen instructions to print your present, and then cut out the shapes in the right order. Once cut, fold and glue together the box shape:

Step 7: Cut two 20″ pieces of florist ribbon / balloon string, and staple them onto the middle of the Christmas tree shape:

Christmas Tree Treat Box using the Cricut Explore at Jennifer Grace Creates

Step 8: Attach it to the top of the box, curl the ribbons, add a button on top to hide the staple, and add the present and a wood star for more decoration:

Fill it with treats to gift to someone this Christmas! I might make a bunch of these for our dining table on Christmas day, so everyone gets a little extra gift!

Be Inspired:

Make or alter a gift box

Use florist ribbon / ballon string to make some curls

Use a printable element on your next project

What sweet treats would you want to find in this box? I love the Haribo Little Men, so that would be my best surprise!

I’ll see you again soon for the last post of the event!

Frosty Festivities Christmas & Winter

Christmas Cards Inspired By Movies

(This post is part of my Frosty Festivities 2014 Blog Event – see the beginning HERE!)

For the final post of the day I’ve got another trio of cards to show you, these ones were all inspired by the movies…

Christmas Cards Inspired By The Movies at Jennifer Grace Creates

During Frosty Festivities 2012 I created a Winter Card Inspired By A Picture Book, so it seemed like a good idea to make some inspired by Christmas movies too!

Here’s the movies I chose as my inspiration:

Christmas Cards Inspired By The Movies at Jennifer Grace Creates

I know ‘The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe’ isn’t technically a Christmas movie, but it counts as one in our household! These are some of my favourite movies to curl up under a blanket and watch during December. I’ve recently been reading ‘The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe’ to my daughter, and this is the first year she’s going to be allowed to watch that movie – I can’t wait to share it with her. She was suitable awed by the book when Lucy first discovers Narnia!

To help me design each card I chose a particular scene or image which immediately jumps to mind when I think about that movie.

For ‘Miracle On 34th Street’ I thought about the Thanksgiving Day parade:

Christmas Cards Inspired By The Movies at Jennifer Grace Creates

I wanted to have a big shaped balloon like the floats, and to anchor the balloon to the ground I decided to have it held by a snowman. So I painted a snowman (from the Wonderland Winter Wood Veneer Set) with white acrylic paint:

Christmas Cards Inspired By The Movies at Jennifer Grace Creates

Then I tied a bit of bakers twine around his hand, and tied the other end to a reindeer from the Fancy Pants Oh Deer ephemera:

Finishing off the card with a few stickers and gems:

Christmas Cards Inspired By The Movies at Jennifer Grace Creates

From ‘The Muppets Christmas Carol’ one of my favourite scenes is when Beaker gives his red scarf to Scrooge:

So I stuck two bits of red wide wired ribbon to the back of a piece of paper:

Christmas Cards Inspired By The Movies at Jennifer Grace Creates

Brought them round to the front of paper and folded one bit over the under and up above the other bit:

Christmas Cards Inspired By The Movies at Jennifer Grace Creates

And then tucked that top bit down the back so both bits were pointing down:

Christmas Cards Inspired By The Movies at Jennifer Grace Creates

The wired ribbon held it’s shape quite well, but I secured the ribbon with some glue dots behind it too:

Christmas Cards Inspired By The Movies at Jennifer Grace Creates

And I finished off the card with a ‘wrap up warm’ phrase and some gems:

Christmas Cards Inspired By The Movies at Jennifer Grace Creates

For ‘The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe’ my favourite bit is when Lucy first sees the lamp post in the forest:

Christmas Cards Inspired By The Movies at Jennifer Grace Creates

So I used my Cricut Explore to cut out a wintry scene and phrase (Images are ‘Village Lamp Post’ #M3C7EF, ‘Trees’ #M3D53D, and ‘Winter Wishes’ #M41A29′). I hid parts of the designs that I didn’t want by clicking on the eye symbol:

Christmas Cards Inspired By The Movies at Jennifer Grace Creates

After cutting them out I didn’t need to add much except a few gems:

I wonder if my recipients will realise these cards were inspired by movies?

Be Inspired:

Choose a Christmas movie and make a project inspired by it

Make a snowy winter scene with cut out shapes

Use ephemera shapes as big balloons

What’s your favourite Christmas movie?

That’s it for this evening, I will see you again tomorrow morning at 10am GMT!
