How to make three different handmade projects, using one die cut set

Hiya crafty friends,

Tattered Lace’s 5th Anniversary celebrations have been going all week, and today is no exception. A new collection is launched today called Romantique. I have been playing with the gorgeous Heart Handbag set.

I think it is quite a useful set of dies to have, as there is a number of elements included, which will come in very handy for a number of projects. As you will see, I have also used the ‘handbag die’ to make different projects other than a bag. 

The first thing I made was the masculine favour below, which can be used for an anniversary gift, usher/grooms-men gifts or a wedding table setting.

Everything was made using the dies, even the bow tie which was made by trimming two of the pointed embellishment die cuts.




I'm really pleased how this vintage style wall hanging came out. I love flowers and lace together, especially with a cream/gold colour palette.







And finally, I made a handbag.


As soon as I saw the die set I knew I had to use the textured paper I had in my stash, and it worked perfectly. For the front I made use of the plaque die to make pockets, the solid heart to make the flap, which I embellished with the stitched strap. I added the cute zip die cut to the back, then added the strap and the embellishments.







Happy crafting

Whispering Sweet Nothings


Hiya crafty friends,

Tattered Lace are celebrating their 5th Anniversary this week, and I can't believe that I have been on their Design Team for over 4 years...4 years!!!...where has the time gone? I have been lucky enough to play with some gorgeous dies over the years and I will share with you soon some of my favourites.

Now, lets look to one of this weeks fifth anniversary collections, Sweet Nothings.  I loved playing with this die set and was really pleased that I could make projects that were unisex, feminine and masculine, and were all made from one set. You know me, I like to get the most out of my stash...lol :)

This first one, I must admit is my favourite. The purse can be used to give money, gift cards or vouchers to your loved ones as it functions just like a real purse.


Now, ladies...you know how hard it is to find those special crafts supplies to make something for the men in our lives. Well, here's a perfect thing you can make and personalise for him.




Finally, I made a portfolio style wallet, but this can be adapted for so many things. When I get some time I am dying to have a go at making an album, art journal, memory book. The list is endless :)










Thanks for stopping by, happy crafting

Childhood Silhouettes



Hiya crafty friends,
Today's cards were made using dies from Tattered Lace's Silhouette collection. I love that you can achieve quite contrasting styles using the same die. 

The first card I made used a Botanical Sentiments Charisma image, that can be downloaded for free HERE. I made this into an aperture card, and really like how the girl is hanging down in the centre of the card and... can actually swing! lol :)

My next card I used the die by simply cutting it out of black card, which gives a lovely silhouette effect. I love how this one came out with the simplistic watercolour background. So clean, but affective





There are three dies in the set, here is a look at some cards I made with them








Thanks for dropping by and happy crafting

Flower Power

Hi crafty friends,


I love making paper flowers, but, for some reason don't get to do it that often, so I was really excited to get the new Charisma Watercolour Hepatica dies to play with. I certainly did a little happy dance.

Lately I've been collecting flower shaping tools from here, there and everywhere, which really helped to shape the flowers. I'm sure it's no great secret to you all, but the tools are actually made for sugar-crafting and they do a great job with paper flowers. My shaping mat is from one of my See D's stamping sets and is perfect for the job. The bonus is I got them all cheap...yay!! You know me. I love a crafty bargain :)




I really do want to play more with flower making, as I always enjoy making them. So for 2018 I've promised myself to do more and I will blog about my learning curve along the way. So here's to a year of flower power, so keep your eyes peeled.






Happy crafting
