Free Printable Valentine's Day Subway Art

Image
Good Morning,
I hope all is well with everyone. Today I would like to share with you the Valentine's Day subway art printable that I promised I would post when it was completed. I am really excited about how it came out. I was going to create the printable in the way that I am used to making subway art, which is in a rectangular form. However, yesterday I came across a wonderful tutorial on how to create words within any shape (heart, square, etc.) on Pinterest.  Therefore, for Valentine's Day I thought it would be appropriate to create a heart shape. The picture is an 8"x10", and it's orientation is landscape. You can download a copy by clicking on the link below. Please remember it is for personal use only....I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Free Winter Printable

Image
Today I want to share with you a winter printable I created. This winter we have not had a lot of snow, which I'm sure many of you are okay with because that means no shoveling. However, as an avid skier, I would like to see some snow. More snow to me means more skiing fun. Therefore, with skiing on my mind, I decided to create a winter "Let it Snow" printable. Even if you are not wishing for snow, it's a cute picture to hang by the doorway or put on the mantel. As I said before, I have a seasonal/holiday frame by my doorway in which I change accordingly. Feel free to download your copy HERE. Please just remember it is for personal use only. Also, if there is a specific type of printable you would like, let me know. I'm always up for new ideas and hearing others thoughts.


Happy Crafting!

How to Create Your Own Color Palettes & Patterns

Hello,
I hope everyone is having a restful and relaxing weekend. Today I want to tell you about a wonderful site that I use to create my own color palettes and patterns. If you have visited my Color Palettes page, you may already be familiar with the site. The site is called COLOURlovers. You can visit my profile for this site  HERE. On this site you can create your own colors, design color palettes {using either basic or advanced palette creator OR from a photo}, design templates and create patterns. Let me give you an example of each.

As of today I have created 39 colors, 17 palettes, 10 patterns and 1 template. Below are just some of the few of my creations.

How to Organize Embroidery Floss Thread

Image
As part of my New Year's resolution to become more organized, I decided that I was going to find a way to prevent those huge balls of tangled embroidery floss. I went on to Amazon and purchased a few skeins of Embroidery FlossI ran out of, plus somebobbins and some other suppliesI was going to need for this project. First I bought a couple of packs of DMC embroidery floss bobbins in which I can wrap the floss around to prevent the tangled mess. They came in two different forms: plastic (28 pack) and cardboard (56 pack). Here are the links if you would like to purchase some for yourself.




To help make winding the embroidery floss on to each bobbin I used a bobbin winder.

To help me to identify what the color number of the embroidery floss was on each bobbin, I bought a pack of floss number stickers. If you are using the cardboard bobbins you can just write the color number in. However, with the plastic bobbins the ink smudges right off.




Finally, I bought the floss organizer to hold …

Free Printable Etsy Custom Order Form

Image
Hello Everyone,
I had not planned on posting today. However, I decided that I would do a quick post to share a printable I had created. Currently I have a shop on Etsy, Bracelets By Jen. I sell many types of friendship bracelets that I have made. I also take custom orders from people if they would like a specific type, color or pattern bracelet. Again with my New Year's resolution being to become more organized, I decided that I needed a way to keep track of the details of my custom orders. Therefore, I decided to create a printable that would let me keep all of my custom order details in on easy place. Here is what the form looks like:


If you are a seller on Etsy, and could use this form to help keep your custom orders more organized, feel free to download your own copy. Please just remember that it is for personal use only. You may share this post, however please remember to link all content back to I Heart Crafting. Thank you!

Winter Subway Art from embē

Image
Today I decided that it was time to change the seasonal/holiday frame that I hang on the wall next to the front door. I keep this frame up year round, and change it to coincide with the time of year. Since all the Christmas decorations are now down, having a christmas subway art picture looks silly. Therefore, after browsing my Winter Pinterest board, I decided that a beautiful picture fromembēshop.com would do the trick. Here is a picture of what the Winter Subway Art looks like:


If you would like to download your own copy of this winter subway art visit embē here for the link. Please remember it is for personal use only! Also, keep an eye out for my Winter and Valentine's Day subway art that I am currently creating. I will post the link once they are completed.

Happy Crafting,
