The Makers of Pretty Things with Crafternoon


Karen here with my last project, this month, using the Crafternoon Range.  This time I wanted to celebrate a group of friends who craft together and we call ourselves ‘The Makers of Pretty Things’.  There is a story behind the name which I can’t reveal – suffice to say it makes us giggle whenever we think about it.


I started by cutting out three hearts, in decreasing sizes, from Crafty, Measured and Back Stitch. I stitched around the smallest (Back Stitch) heart with white embroidery floss and then stuck them all to the centre of a piece of Snow Weave cardstock.  My 5in x 7in photo was added on centrally on the right and I used my Silhouette to cut a title from a scrap of Back Stitch and backed it with a scrap of Snow Weave cardstock which I also cut a tag from.


Next I fussy cut some doilies from the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad and placed these at the bottom left and top right of my hearts. 


Then I cut some flowers and leaves using Decorative Die – DIY Flora Peony to make some flowers and  Decorative Die – Rose and Leaves for the leaves from the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad, these were added on top of the doilies, with Aqua rhinestones for centres.


To finish my page I added a selection of Collectables.


Some stickers from the Sticker Book and a Curio.

I have been able to make such a verity of projects from this range celebrating my daughter’s first venture into dressmaking, my favourite scrapbook pages and a crafting friendship.  I absolutely adore the colour palette of this range and hope we have inspired you to use it on some of your projects.
