I wanted to share with you this Rainbow Love Heart Card Collection I have just made and Listed on my Etsy Shop. I’d love to know what you think and I’ve got more coming soon…
The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee is just around the corner and I’ve still got lots to do before the party on Saturday.
Today I’ve been making some Diamond Jubilee themed bunting which I have made with the help of my cutting machine. (Its new and I love it!!!)
I made the bunting design in Photoshop then converted the file to an SVG so I could cut the designs out on my cutter. I have included the JPEG images I created in Photoshop at the bottom of this post, you can convert these files easily into vector images using an on-line converter (this is what I did).
Fingers crossed the weather will be lovely on Saturday and I can take some better photographs, until then here are some photographs of my handmade bunting displayed higgledy piggledy on my study wall!!!
With the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee only a couple of weeks away I thought I’d share with you some invitations I have made for a tea party we are having to celebrate the Jubilee.
We enjoyed planning and creating the Mad Hatters Tea Party so much we decided to find another excuse to have another party.
I’ve also included 2 free printable invites for anyone to use, one is blank and the second can be adapted to fit your own date time and venue.
I decorated a plain white envelope with the free jubilee printable you can find on the craft beautiful website
I will keep you posted with everything we do but for now here are the invites…
I discovered these Free Luxury Best of British Papers in my Craft Beautiful magazine a few weeks ago and decided today I would make something with them!
I’m forever using post it notes as bookmarks so I thought I’d create something a bit more fun! I downloaded the free printable and created the bookmarks in Photoshop but they could also be made by simply printing the papers and then cutting and sticking them together??
I cut a slit in the middle of the design and simply pushed a paper clip through.
If anybody fancies making some bookmarks or needs any free papers check out Craft Beautiful’s archive, they have a nice collection.

I’ve just made this crochet pencil pot cover. I’m not the best crocheter in the world, but I made it by creating a circle motif the same width as a baked bean tin. Then crocheted a rectangle wide enough to fit around the diameter of a baked beans tin and finished with shell edging. I stitched them together and hey presto……….
It’s been a while since my last post but I’ve been busy making these cute handmade lanterns. Made from glass jars, spray paint and garden string they are really easy and inexpensive to make. With summer not to far away I think these would look great scattered around the garden with tea lights…..what do you think???
