Other Blogger: Graphic’s Fairy

March 25, 2014

For a number of years – at least three – I have been a fan of the Graphics Fairy blog.

A massive fan!

Karen (aka The Graphics Fairy) is INCREDIBLY generous with her
digital work and image editing.

I’ve used one of her images here.

Do you think I put it to good use?

Today I just had to share one of her latest blog posts:
10 DIY Pillow Ideas“.
So absolutely cool!

Do you love these designs as much as I do?

Aren’t they amazing?

How would you use one of Karen’s designs
to create a designer cushion?

I’d love to see a photo if you give it a try :)

Felted Gnomes

I was trawling Pinterest
– as you do –
and came across this amazing
work by creative gal
B Carsten of Painting Pixie at Etsy.

Blossom Gnomes Too cute !

Now I was thinking,
that with my GF’s (Sally) help
I think I may just try to make a little one.

.

Even if I don’t manage it
isn’t looking at them
enough?!?

So adorable.


Cotton Spools

July 26, 2012

Here at the Purple Paper House, we’re always looking for ways to avoid the boring and unnecessary parts of life;
– bookwork
– vacuuming
– dusting
– tidying

Which is why this week, when I saw this totally wicked tutorial via Jellybean Scrappers, I joust had to have a go.

I enjoyed it SO much, I have now made four of them. I wonder how many I will make by the end of the week.

Four Spools

 

Cute aren’t they?

 

And here’s how I did it . . .

Stamp an image onto plain paper ready to adhere it to a roll of any description (I used the internal roll from my cash register docket) . . .

Stamp, then glue

Continue adhering paper

Apply glue to end of roll

Sand off the overhang

Neat edges – beautiful

Circles glued together

Apply glue to ends

 

Attach circles to the ends
And you’re done!
