3dcuts files can be used for sewing!

Kelly at svgsews.com uses svg files in her quilting and other fabric projects. She recently blogged about making an artsy placemat based on my Winterberry and Chickadee Shadow Box file.

What a beautiful combination of crafts! Kelly also posted a Youtube video about the process for creating this placemat here.

Here is my original design. You can see what wonderful variety can be added by mixing your own creativity and skill set.

Another use for my ladder file....

I really like the design of the step ladder I made for halloween. This week I took that file and added some new accessories for the changing season. Here it is, all decked out for Christmas.

New Buildings for Tea Light Village

There is no doubt about it. One of the all time favorite designs of mine is the Tea Light Village. This is a great beginner level 3D project. It is also one that experienced crafts love to customize. And the display potential is endless. It has become a Christmas tradition for me to add new buildings to the growing Tea Light Village.  For 2016 I have designed a Dormer House, the Grange Meeting Hall, and the town Gazebo.

All match the style and scale of the original tea light village buildings. You can purchased just the three new designs, or if you haven't tried these yet, there is a group purchase with great savings for the entire village.

Here is my display with all the buildings perched on birch logs.

I would love it if you would share with me photos of your Tea Light village displays. I have started a page sharing these photos here.

Happy crafting everyone!

Work of Paul Kitching

It pleases me so to see fellow crafters that take my ideas and expand on them.  Paul Kitching sent me some photos of his application of my Loon Lake layered shadow box applied to wood.  What incredible patience he had to cut these fine details on a jig saw! Nicely done Paul.

3D Lantern Banner with LED Tea Lights

Just finished a 3D Lantern Banner designed to hold LED Tea Lights.  The design is flexible, works for any occasion and the letters can be removable so the lanterns can be re-used. What celebrations do you have coming up in your life?

The cutting files for the complete banner construction set including the lantern, plus all letters and numbers are available at my site here. And you can view the detailed tutorial here.

Make the lanterns once and use them for multiple occasions. The letters (and tops) can be changed. The back pivots open and an LED tea light can be placed inside to provide a flickering glow.

I made this version for my granddaughter.....

More Gears

I have always had the challenge of creating a 3D gear on my crafting to do list.  I collect gears of all shapes and sizes and I knew this would be an interesting addition plus a design challenge.  I have created cutting files for 2 different gears that do mesh together but more importantly, I have done it in a way that allowed me to also create a tutorial so others can make them also!

Check out my latest cutting files - Steampunk Gears

The larger gear stands about 8" tall and is 1.25" thick so it stands on its own. The smaller gear is about 6.5" tall.

The cutting files are available here.

The assembly tutorial can be viewed here.
