Heart themed notepad Bookmark


Happy Friday all! this weeks theme was " Hearts" and thought i would do something different this time: using all the papers from the  Distress ink paper bundle printed and folded into  quarters, using a  heart shaped die ( or cut by hand)  carefully place approx 1/2 inch  before the folded point , print and cut cut several pages, when opened it looks like a flower!! Cut the front and back heart from a cereal packet and covered this also using the papers, glued onto a strip of hessian and carefully adhering the folded  hearts shaped pages  you have a notepad on the go in your favourite diary/notebook : the sentiment is using my " go to" sensational everyday stamps which is a " must have set"  flowers are used using punches from my stash and the left over scraps, go on give this a go its quite simple and useful project! until next time Happy Crafting all :-)

Foamirian flowers and stamens.

Hi Everyone,



 Recently i attended a foam flower making beginners class  and i acquired another addiction :-)  i decided to share my journey with you!  the pictures below are not the flowers i made at the class, instead i opted to have a go myself.

I started by making the stamens: i first took some cotton thread and brushed the cotton with clear drying pva glue, next i placed liquid pearls on the ends and dipped into mirco beads and left to dry.

I didn't want to use my finer foam just yet as I'm only practising, so i cut 1mm foam into love heart shapes (10 petals in total, i coloured the ends with Faber Castell Gelatos in Raspberry, then i warmed on an ordinary iron on silk setting, rolled and shaped each love heart by hand, ensuring the very top of the petals was rolled tightly, gently stretch out taking care not to stretch out the tips of the petals or they will go smooth again.

Once my stamens was dry i wrapped fine wire around them to make the centre, i had also cut a fine fringe from a strip of foam and rolled also with my stamens.

Next i glued the pointed tips of my love hearts only onto the created stamen centre, working 5 petals around the centre and 5 more around the outside.

next time i hop to show a step by step guide . hope you like the flower :-)
