Classroom decor ~ Felt Boho Rainbow Wall Hanging


 Hello everyone! I hope that you are having a great week. I have another classroom decor item to share today. I am adding boho rainbow decor item to the room and I wanted to make some impact. This wall hanging will be near the front entrance of my classroom. I used the same cut file from my previous project and used it to cut felt on my Silhouette cameo 3.


I selected some thin felt and applied Heat n Seal on the back using a hot iron. Once this had cooled I transfered this onto a cutting mat. I used  Cricut fabric grip mat instead of a Silhouette cuttng mat. I also changed my blade to a deep cut blade as well.


My settings to cut the felt are blade 20  speed 3 force 33 passes 2.

This was the first time that I had cut felt using my Silhouette and it worked. I had thick felt (pink) and it didn't work on my Silhoutte, however I have my die cutting dies, so I used my die cutting machine and a Spellbinders heart die and die cut it out.

For the rest, I used heat transfer vinyl and a cricut heat press and adhered everything onto my fabric.

Can't wait to place this in my room!

Have a great day.

Classroom Decor ~ Boho Rainbow Welcome Sign

Hello everyone! I hope that you are enjoying your day. I have another classroom decor item to share. This item was created using a wooden a-frame from Kmart. Firstly, I applied a coat of spray sealer over the front of the frame and let it air dry. 

I purchased the Boho Rainbow Bundle by Sharp SVG from the Hungry JPEG and selected some permanent vinyl from my stash. I have a Silhouette cameo 3 and it still works like a charm!

I used the font Allspice in Silhouette studio to create my greeting.

This was very easy to create, and the bundle from the Hungry Jpeg is easy to use in Silhouette Studio.

 

Thanks for stopping by!

Classroom Decor ~ Boho Rainbow

Hello everyone. I hope that you are having a good day. I have decided that it is time to redecorate my classroom and I have decided that my new theme will be the Boho Rainbow. I looked at several ideas on pinterest and have been shopping at Kmart and Spotlight to gather supplies.

To alter my rainbow, I applied one layer of gesso and let it air dry. Then I selected some paint and used blue painters tape to tape of each area as I applied each colour with a paintbrush.

Once everything had dried, I used macrame cord to tie my cords to the base of the frame. I used a cord and beads to create a hanger at the top. Everything was purchased from Kmart (the paint I had in my stash).

Supplies:

plywood rainbow

macrame cord

wooden beads

cord

Monte Marte studio acryclic paint set 18 x 36mL paint

liquitex white gesso

Cross Stitch Pillows

 

Happy New Year! I hope that you have been safe and well and have enjoyed the holidays with your loved ones. It has been a very long time since I have shared anything crafty with you. Teaching during a pandemic has been the most challenging experience I have been through to this point. Words cannot describe my new 'teacher tired' that I have been experiencing from the end of 2021. 

I have been crafting small projects in the background, and have taken up old crafts that I haven't worked on for a long time. I have been doing some cross stitch and quilting, cut back on scrapbooking and card making temporarily but did make Christmas cards at the very last minute. I just haven't had the time and quite frankly, my mojo left the building.


I have made two cross stitch pillows, following the patterns from Lori Holt's stitch cards.  These projects are very portable and fun to make. I followed Lori's construction on her Youtube channel.


Instead of using felt on the back (which Lori Holt uses), I used some adhesive lace flowers from my stash. I adhered it to my pillow back using hot glue.


Supplies:

Lori Holts stitch card Set A and I, Aida 14 count rustico, called for DMC thread, white adhesive lace trim, fabric from my stash and polyester filling.

 

Stay safe and well.

Slimline Card


 

Hello everyone. I hope that you are keeping safe and well. It has been a little while since I've shared a project with you, but with the challenges of Covid affecting shipping, Kaisercraft have experienced problems in receiving product. I am glad to be able to share a slimline card with you, using the Le Belle Collection. Its vintage and gorgeous.


I have enjoyed creating cards using slimline dimensions. I use 9" x 4" for my card base.

For the focal area of my card, I have used a birdcage and butterfly from the collectables. I fussy cut some flowers from Garden (reverse) to add to the base of the cage. I then altered some paper blooms to add dimension and also add a vintage feel to the card.


As I had chosen a slimline card as my card design, I could take advantage of the extra length of the card front. I used a variety of fishtails created from dies from my stash and adhered them using glue and foam tape to add dimension.

For a list of products used click here to view the Kaisercraft blog.

To all of my fellow Sydney friends, I hope the current lockdown has not been too difficult for you and that you are all safe and well.


Take good care.

Sew By Row

 

Hello everyone! I hope that you are safe and well. I have taken advantage of our lockdown in Sydney and have finished my Lori Holt Sew By Row cross stitch. I absolutely love how this has turned out and can't wait to frame it and place it 'somewhere' in my house. I follow the Fat Quarter Shop on Youtube which is where I saw this and then I purchase the pdf pattern at the beginning of the year and now it is no longer a WIP but a finish!

 

Here are some close ups...




Take good care.

Blessed

 

Hello everyone! I hope that you are well. I am sharing a layout that I have created using the Flowering Natives Collection from Kaisercraft. It has beautiful native florals in this collection. I decided to take it in a vintage direction with my layout.

I distressed the edges of my papers and inked them with vintage photo distress ink. I also used stamping and stencils to add textures in my background. I applied some of the vintage photo distress ink to my paper to dull it. When I did this, it reminded me of faded wallpaper.


I cut up a sentiment from the base of a paper and inked the edges and used it on my layout. I felt it complimented the sentiment. To add more vintage feel to my layout, I added some ink splatters once complete.
