Thoughts on the Non-Spending Month

Thoughts on the Non-Spending Month

[:en] This challenge was amazing, I learned a lot from it. I don’t spend too much money in crafts to be honest (don’t have it can’t spend it) but this year I couldn’t spending anything so I set this challenge to myself. I learned a […]

[:en] When I saw this tutorial I knew I had to make something like this. I love all the hippie look, the maxi dresses, the headband and this was the perfect opportunity to see how I looked in one. This is a bedsheet (I actually […]

Be True to Myself

Be True to Myself

[:en]
I don’t know about you but I’ve some canvas that I make something with them and after a while I’m tired of them or the result didn’t turn out as I expected. So I cover them all again and start something new 🙂 Like my summer goal display or this that I painted a while ago (but only Monday gave the final touches):


I love it! I completely forgot how painting like this was so relaxing. And I also love the quote, sometimes I forget this and I’m ashamed of who I am, but what’s the point of living a life without being yourself or following what everyone tells you to do? I don’t see the point. This is such a good reminder to never forget to stay true to myself.[:pt]
Não sei se são como eu mas tenho alguns quadros que já não me dizem nada ou o que o resultado não foi o esperado. Por isso cubro-os e faço algo novo 🙂 Como o meu quadro com objectivos de verão e isto que pintei há algum tempo atrás (mas só Segunda é que lhe dei os toques finais):


Adoro isto! Esqueci-me completamente de como pintar me relaxava. Também adoro a citação, por vezes esqueço-me disto e tenho vergonha de quem sou, mas qual é o sentido de viver sem ser tu própria ou seguir o que os outros te dizem que deves fazer? Não entendo. Isto é uma óptima de forma de nunca esquecer para ser verdadeira comigo própria.[:]

Yesterday I spent most of my afternoon (with some breaks and if you’re a fast hand sewer you’ll finish this in no time) doing this:


Really like it, it’s definately not perfect, stitches can be seen, it’s not exactly very well aligned but I like it 🙂 I followed this tutorial and it’s a perfect way to not spending any money doing crafts, my fabric was an old shirt sleeve of my brother’s (when he was 6, amazing how little fabric this uses) and the idea of using a yogurt lid to achieve this effect is genius.[:pt]
Ontem passei a tarde (com vários intervalos e se coses à mão rapidamente acabarás isto num instante) a fazer isto:


Gosto bastante. Definitivamente não perfeita, os pontos podem ver-se, não está exactamente bem alinhada mas gosto bastante dela 🙂 Segui este tutorial e é uma óptima forma de não gastar nenhum dinheiro a fazer trabalhos manuais, o tecido era uma manga de uma antiga camisa do meu irmão (quando ele tinha 6 anos, incrível quão pouco tecido utilizei nisto) e usar uma tampa de iogurte pa ter este efeito é genial.[:]

Guest Post: Cheap Scrapbooking

Katie is super crafty! She’s got an amazing blog, you should check it out! I love that her posts are always full of energy and she does lots of things, when I read her blog it’s like it’s impossible to get tired! I’ll leave you with her:

Hey there, I’m Katie from the blog Punk Projects where I post Craft Tutorials, Art Inspiration, Scrapbooking Layouts and little peeks into my life!

I’m super happy that Cath asked me to a guest post, and since on of my favorite things to do is scrapbooking I decided to do a little DIY on creating a scrapbook layout without really using any of those expensive scrapbook embellishments!

Supplies: Paper, Picture, Magazine, Misc Embellishments
1. Find a cute page in a magazine that you think would go with your scrapbook layout- I found a page full of these AH-mazing cameras (I think it was in an Urban Outfitters catalog)
Although it doesn’t have to be shapes- You could trying cutting out different words you like. 😉

2. Cut out the shapes/words you want.

and use them in place of scrapbook stickers!

What do you think? Is this a technique you use???

Katie tem bastante jeitinho para trabalhos manuais! Ela tem um blog maravilhoso, deviam vê-lo! Adoro os posts dela cheios de energia e ela faz bastante coisas, quando leio o blog dela parece que é impossível sentir-se cansada! Vou deixar-vos com ela:

Olá, eu sou a Katie do blog Punk Projects onde posto tutoriais de trabalhos manuais, inspiração, layouts de scrapbooking e um pouco sobre a minha vida!

Estou super contente que a Cath me tenha pedido para fazer um post aqui, e como scrapbooking é uma das minhas coisas favoritas a fazer decidi mostrar-vos como fazer um layout de scrapbooking sem usar muito dinheiro em enfeites!

Materiais: Papel, Imagem, Revista, enfeites
1. Encontre uma página de uma revista que se adequaria ao layout do scrapbook – eu encontrei uma página cheia de máquinas FAN-tásticas (acho que foi num catálogo do Urban Outfitters)
Mas não precisam de ser formas – podem cortar várias palavras que gostem em vez disso. 😉

2. Corte as formas/palavras que quer.

e usem-nos em vez de usarem autocolantes!

O que acham? Usariam esta técnica??
