Colourcraft Heart With Tyvck Flowers

Hi all

I am on the blog today with a Winter themed wall hanging. I used Tyvek paper to create embellishments.




 Take a mdf heart and paint with gesso before painting it with Copper Aztec Metallics Lustre paint and leave to dry.



Paint over the heart with crackle medium and leave it to set before painting over the top with white acrylic paint.






Cover surface with Aztec Metallic Lustre White Pearl  paint to add a icy shimmer.


To create the flowers i.used a die cut to cut out circles from the Tyvek paper. I tried it with cog dies and achieved a more textured look.




Paint the circles with Aztec Metallic Luster or fabric paints.




Punch a hole through the centers and use a  heat gun to crinkle up the Tyvek to create the flowers.




Finish of by adding flowers and foilage around the Tyvek flowers and add lace to the top of the heart so it can be hung up.

How To Create A Dazzling Christmas Decoration


Hi all

I am back with a quick Christmas make showing how Best Glue Ever can be used to create fesive decore.


Start off by taking the letters and painting some red and adding decoupage paper to the rest of the letters.




Leave it to dry and then use Best Glue ever to cover the letters with gems and pearls. Best Glue Ever sets tacky so really small embellishments stay stuck and do not drop off once the glue starts to dry.


Once everything has set. Use Best Glue Ever to glue the letters together to form one word. This glue is great for wood as once it sets it sticks tight.

Create This Elegant Tell The Bees Shaker Card


Hi all

I have a card made using the Tell The Bess collection.



Cover a 5 x 7 blank card with Tell The Bees Patterened paper.

Cut  a large rectangle out of gold honeycomb paper using a nesting die and glue to the edge of the card. Leave rougthly a 5 mm gap so that the bottom layer firms a frame.

Cut another smaller rectangle out and glue across the card. Add matching ribbon and trim to fit. 



To create a shaker box, take any nesting die of yout choice and take the largest size and place the next size down inside to make a frame. Secure with tape and then cut out one frame from foam and one from paper. If you want a deeper shaker box then cut a few extra foam frames and glue them together.
Seperate the dies and then using the largest size. Cut out a base from patterened paper and a top out of acetate.

Glue the foam frame to the base and leave to dry before adding sequins. Then glue the acetate frame to the top and once dry add the frame cut from pattetened paper. Glue this to the edge of the paper layers.

Finish ofc by cutting out the bees from the toppers sheet and gluing them to the shaker box.

A Quick And Easy Tote Bag With Fabric Paint

Hi all

I have a quick and easy tutorial on how to decorate your own tote bags using Colourcraft fabric paints. I used a canvas bag which are about a pound online so not too expensive and great as gift bags.




Draw a heart onto car or craft foam to make a stencil. i drew around a heart shaped plaque to get the shape. then using three fabric paints (Magenta, pink and red) I used the rubber end of a pencil to stamp around the heart with the paints.


I continued to stamp around the inside of the heart until it was full of colour. I places a bit of the fabric paint on to the lid and just dipped the rubber nib in to get the right amount of paint on the end.


Create a ombre effect by starting with the lighter colour and finishing with the darker colour. sometimes you need to go back over some of the dots to get a stronger colour.


The paint once dry is water proof and takes about a day to fully set.

How To Create A Adorable Penguin Tag


Hello craft friends 

I have a tag to share with you today and how easy it is to add glitter to projects using Best Glue Ever.



Use the landscape stamp to add the snow mounds to a plain tag.



Apply Best Glue Ever to the snow piles and spread the glue over. The glue will hold the glitter onto the project so it won't flake back off over time. This glue dries tacky instead of dry and brittle which is why it bonds so well with glitter and small embellishments. 


Apply fine white glitter and leave it to set.


Paint the top half of the tag with blue acrylic paint.


Stamp over the tag with the snow fall background stamp in dark blue ink.


Apply small blobs of Best Glue Ever to the tag using the Fine Tipped Nozzle add on.  Apply fine white glitter over the top and leave to dry.


Stamp out a penguin and colour in. Add white glitter to the belly and hat.


Add the hat and scalve to the penguin and add it to the tag


Finish the tag with a sentiment
