My new papercut adventure!


I have been a very bad blogger of late and have left me blog feeling very rejected!  My excuse is that I have been very busy with my uni course and placements. I'm now on an Easter break - which should mean essay writing but instead I have taken the opportunity to do some crafting and blogging instead!!

My new adventure is papercut images.  I only started having a go yesterday, and so I've only created 3 so far. I've started off simple. I have seen so many beautifully intricate papercuts that for now I will just aspire to!

Here is my first attempt:

As you can see nice and simple!

For my second attempt I wanted to do a free style swirl pattern to see what would happen:

I wasn't overly enamored by this one but I think it'd look better incorporated into a larger design. Completing the swirl pattern also made me realise that my standard craft tool really isn't up to the job - especially when it comes to curved edges.

So I decided to do a little research and I came across this blog:
And talk about stunning designs - I was blown away! One of this blogger's posts kindly talks about what tools are best for papercutting and suggests a 360degree swivel blade. He also has included some videos on his blog demonstrating how these blades make life so much easier!

I therefore have invested in one and I pick it up tomorrow!!

Of course I couldn't wait for the blade to arrive before attempting my next papercut - a horse silhouette:

I have to say I am rather over the moon with this one.  I now need to decide how to mount these papercuts.

Let me know what you think of my attempts so far. Tomorrow when I pick up my new blade (a Fiskars Swivel Knife) I'll also pick up some good quality card as I feel the paper I'm using is a little flimsy - resulting in some near decapitations of letters and legs!

I promise I will blog more often - especially now I've begun on this new papercutting venture/adventure!

The Craft Centre King's Lynn and Craft Group King's Lynn...

Exciting news... JewelOri is now renting a shelf at The Craft Centre King's Lynn (31 Norfolk Street, King's Lynn). I will get a photo of my shelf this Saturday to share with you all but here's what I've got there at the moment...

As you all know I'm a poor student so as part of my payment for the shelf rent I am helping with various bits and contributing to the window display. To start with this Saturday I will be decoupaging a beautiful set of wooden step ladders, which will be turned into a quirky shelf set to go into the window. Here's a photo of the heart music paper bunting I have donated for their Valentine's window display...

Having a shelf in the shop and selling online at Folksy will help massively as I won't be able to attend many, if any, craft fairs this year due to my uni course.

The craft centre is also going to be the new home of Craft Group King's Lynn.  We will be meeting every other Saturday morning 10am-12(ish). As always it is free to attend with the exception of donating a small amount towards tea and coffee.  If you wish to attend visit the Craft Group King's Lynn tab above to see what is planned and what we've done in the past.  You are required to provide your own materials for most events.
