SugarBeetCrafts Valentines Day Cards Title

Hi Everybody!!

I hope this post finds you having a wonderful February so far. Can you believe Valentine’s Day is just around the corner already!?  This year is flyin’ by.

Have you ever wondered where the tradition of Valentine’s Day Cards came from? Well it has been rumored that the very first Valentine’s day card was sent by Saint Valentine himself. He sent it while he was imprisoned and waiting for execution by the Romans. It seems he was quite taken with a jailer’s daughter. And so just before his death he sent a letter and signed it Your Valentine.

The oldest known Valentine’s day card is kept at the British Library in London it is a poem written in French in the year 1415 by Charles Duke. He wrote it to his wife, while he was imprisoned in the Tower of London. I would actually love to see it, is amazing it has lasted this long.

So to celebrate this wonderful day of Love and Friendship, I decided to make my own Valentine’s Day Cards just for you.

I created 8 free Valentines day cards. Each one hand drawn and colored. They are great to print out and pass out to friends, teachers and loved ones or you can print them out punch a tiny hole in the top string them up and make a cool banner out of them.

Free Bead Loom Pattern: Heart Bracelet

loom bead pattern

 

Hi Everyone!

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend! If you have never tried beading on a loom, you should totally try it. It is super easy and super addicting, especially when you can create your own patterns.  I created the heart bracelet pattern a few years back when I decided to make bracelets for a few friends and family members. It’s the first pattern I ever attempted so I decided to keep it simple. I do really like how they came out.

I used the same pattern but varied the colors, some were black, red, and grey another was black, metallic blue and clear. The variations are endless.

If you are not familiar with Loom Beading here is a great tutorial by Jewelry Supply on YouTube:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=ScjJsOIQP3w

Bead looms are not very expensive unless you want to get fancy. They usually range from about $9.00 and up.

Here is the bracelet:

Making the pattern:

Each dot is a bead, fill in the holes until you’re happy with your pattern, then get beading!

Fun Free Download – Keys

Why hello there! I hope you’re doing fantastic!  

I was clearing out some of my crafting things when I came across a bunch of random keys. I collect them to use for projects and stuff. Well, I thought it would be neat to scan them in to use in digital art or whatever.  

I have uploaded two different formats – well I hope.  The jpeg is supposed to have a white background the PNG is supposed to be a transparent background.

Feel free to download and play around with them. I thought they were cool so maybe you might too.

If you want to play around with they keys, and do not have Photoshop, there is a program to experiment with.

There is a really neat program that is very close to Photoshop called Pixlr Editor: http://pixlr.com/editor/ .  It’s a web based program so you do not have to download anything and it is so much fun. I hope this helps.

Have fun!
