The Best Of 2016 On Heart Handmade UK!
Welcome to the best of 2016 from the Heart Handmade UK blog. I still can’t quite believe that it is almost 2017. When you do what you love I think it’s easy for time to fly by, so I am very grateful that you’re here! Your visits mean that I can continue to do this and provide lots of tutorials and round-up posts for you!
A fantastic tutorial created for Merry Makings, the free Christmas Craft magazine that was released in 2013 but I decided to share the tutorials this December as they are relevant to the season and included some amazing projects by some very talented ladies.
(You can still download and save the magazine here)
I have such an extensive collection of lace doilies, and I absolutely adore them. Most recently I created a post about gift wrapping ideas on a budget which included a tutorial on How To Dye Lace Doilies. I might have to turn the post into ‘16 Fascinating Crafts with Lace Doilies‘ 😉
Hand lettering is a real passion of mine; I am always taking new classes and learning new techniques. My next class to conquer is all about Brush Lettering, and I’m very excited. Hoping to get myself some lovely brush markers in the sales this coming January!
I’m excited about the prospect of helping people start their craft blogs, if it’s something that they dream about and really want! It’s an excellent career path, and I’m happy to hold hands while you learn.
This guide was a real labour of love because I want to empower you to be confident enough to display self-portraits on your walls!
This was a very popular post for back to school time, but it’s ideal for all year round! If you have a die cutting machine, then you will be able to replicate these projects easily. Check out the links within the posts for cut files.
After creating this post, I became rather obsessed with the idea of stencilling and then proceeded to stencil everything in sight. Well, my back door and a rug so far but this house is new and the New Year will give me time to sort out some other rooms in my home and paint more doors and windows as planned.
After receiving an excellent Cloud sketching book, I became rather enamoured with all things cloud shaped. There are some incredible products out there; I couldn’t believe the range. I didn’t even know they were a trend! I’m glad they are, though. Some of the items are just delightful.
Craft storage is one of my absolute favourite topics. I dream of a beautifully organised craft room. It can get to the stage of the beautiful organisation but then I begin a project, pull out all of the supplies and then throw them in different places. I would say I’m about 60% of the way there.
Another beautiful project by Ayda Algin from Cafenohut. Ayda created this particular project for Handmade Happy – The Free Summertime Craft Magazine available for download in the Digital freebies library (scroll down and enter your e-mail for access).
