Heartfelt Creations Woodland Cottage Gift Tag

 

Back again with another project using the newly released Heartfelt Creations Wildwood Cottage collection.  Using the Cottage die create a house shaped tag base by sliding the folded edge edge of a Curious Cryogen Metallic Card Stock A2 Card (4.25" x 5.5") just inside the left edge of the die.  Cut a front for the house using DP from the paper collection.  Using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and Cryogen card stock, stamp the door, windows and sign and die cut with the coordinating dies.  Color with Copic markers.  Using your embossing stylus, score along the edge of the shutters and bend them up.  Add yellow card stock behind the windows and doors to look like lamplight.  Adhere to the card front with Designer Dries Clear Adhesive.  Die cut the roof edge from Cryogen card stock, color with Copics to match and add to the tag front.


Die cut another piece of DP for the inside of the card.  Add a sentiment panel and a panel for signature as shown in the picture.  Adhere the Home Sweet Home sign at the top.  Punch a hole through both sides of the tag and add a decorative ribbon.

Rigid Heddle Loom Weaving


I took a class at Stitch in Time in Howell, Mi in November to learn to weave on a Schacht Cricket Rigid Heddle Loom, the 15 inch version.  I liked it so much that I purchased the loom and have been thoroughly enjoying myself.  

 This was my class project, a lovely lightweight scarf.

My next successful project was weaving two kitchen towels with Peaches and Cream cotton yarn from Walmart.  The warp is mostly variegated with a few warps of solid color to created the stripes.  The weft is entirely the variegated yarn.  I used the entire 15 inch span of my loom with a #8 Dent Heddle.  Length is about 23 inches.

Next, I wanted to try a Houndstooth pattern.  So I made this scarf, 72 inches by 8 inches.  I used Caron Simply Soft Acrylic Yarn, Charcoal Heather and Grey Heather and a Houndstooth 2x2 pattern, again with a #8 Dent.

My latest project was to learn to warp float.  I watched Kelly Casanova's YouTube videos to learn how to use a pick up stick and then what pattern to follow to create the warp floats (the longer vertical stitches on the scarf)  I used Caron Simply Soft Acrylic yarn, Crayon Variegated for warp, Black for weft with #8 Dent.

Now I want to learn to do a weft float.  I am having so much fun and wish I had a bigger loom to create some throw rugs for my kitchen.  Come on tax return!

Heartfelt Creations Flip Fold Album



Today I have a really cute Flip Fold Album to share, created with the newly released Heartfelt Creations Wildwood Cottage collection.  Assemble the 6 1/4" x 8 1/2" Flip Fold Album from the Flipfold Inserts E pack.  Refer to this video by Emma Lou for assembly directions   I added the extra piece of scored card stock from the kit (it is 6" x 7 1/2" scored on the long side) as an extra flap on the inside of the front flap of the album.  Use the matching die from the Regals Borders die set to cut a paper to fit the fancy tab on the front. Refer to the video at the bottom of this post to see how to decorate each page of the album with papers and stamped images from the Wildwood Cottage Collection.

Add a 6 1/4" 8 1/2" matchbox below the album for storing extra pictures or keepsakes.  To create the matchbox sleeve, take a 6 1/4" by 12" piece of white card stock.  Score along the 12" side at the 1/2", 1 3/4" 10 1/4" and 11 1/2".  This will be the top of your sleeve.  Adhere a piece of card stock, 6 1/4" x 8 1/2" on to the 1/2" folded tabs to create the sleeve.  To create the drawer, take a 11 7/8" x 9 5/8" piece of white card stock.  Along the 11 7/8" side, score at 5/8", 1 3/4", 10 1/8" and 11 1/4".  Along the 9 5/8" side, score at 5/8", 1 3/4" 7 7/8" and 9".  Fold the edges in to create your box.  Add patterned paper to the sides of your drawer, both inside and out, to the base of your drawer and also to the sides of your sleeve.  Adhere the sleeve to the bottom of the album, slide the drawer in and attach a drawer pull.
