March Project are UP! Spring is in the AIR!

Good Afternoon Everyone!

I live in Texas and with the warm temps we have been having, everything is budding out and blooming.  It's my favorite time on the farm as it's so pretty.  It seems that I have so many things that bloom in the spring and less the rest of the year because it can change from glorious spring to 90 degree HOT overnight.  You have to enjoy it while you have it...

With Spring thoughts in mind, I have created two projects this month.  A fun and colorful Bunny Basket and this month's Luminary House Collection Project, The Spring Bungalow...Let me show you some pictures and give you some links if you would like to give these projects a try...

The Bunny Basket





The Bunny Basket is a fast and easy project.  The basket is removable to style the things you put inside.  Replace the basket on the bunny stand and it’s a perfect decoration for spring.  Place candy and eggs in The Bunny Basket for children or friends.  Add a small plant to liven up a coffee table, side table or even a centerpiece for a spring dining table.

Kit Includes:
All Precut Chipboard Pieces 
All Precut Paper Pieces 
Small Bottle of Glossy Accents 
Instant Download Tutorial

And for this Month's Luminary House Collection...

The Spring Bungalow






The Spring Bungalow is an addition to the Luminary House Collection...We are building a VILLAGE... Each month there will be a new house, castle, cottage or building for you to choose to add to your village collection.

I live close to a town that has a section called “Old Town” full of all those wonderful architectural styles that make your heart sing.   Victorian and Mission houses to shotguns, cottages, and bungalows…I was inspired by a bungalow house covered with Spring flowers, foliage and trees just budding out…So hence the name, Spring Bungalow…The short pillars out front of the house are just begging for urns full of fern or flowers.  The covered porch is ready for some rocking chairs or a swing to enjoy those cool breezes with a nice cold glass of lemonade…It’s here again…Spring!


Kit Includes: 
All Precut Chipboard Pieces 
All Precut Authentique Paper 
Small bottle of Glossy Accents

Graphic 45 Feet

February Projects: Castle and Album

Good Morning To You!

Today I am pleased to share two new projects for February.  We continue with the Village Collection with an Irish Castle and pay homage to The 2017 Oscars!

In thinking about St. Patrick's day next month,  I looked through the interwebs and found a beautiful Irish Castle...Bunratty.  I loved the beautiful turrets and the shape of the castle so I set off to see if I could make it.

Castle Bunratty is an addition to the Luminary House Collection...We are building a VILLAGE... Each month there will be a new house, castle, cottage or building for you to choose to add to your village collection.

This is such a fun project to make and is very impressive when lit with or without battery operated tea lights.  It’s an enchanting castle full of alcoves, turrets, windows, and even topped by a pinnacle

When you preorder this kit, it will come with all the supplies needed to make it and a tutorial with .SVG files (To cut on your digital cutter) that will be emailed to you when the kits ships.

This is my version of...

Bunratty Castle

The Oscars Album

In honor of the 2017 Oscars, I created an album for all those movie fanatics having Oscar Parties.  I call this, The Oscars Album.  It is a formally attired album full of red carpet looks for both ladies and gents.  Please don’t let the name fool you.  This would be the perfect album for formal parties, weddings, father/daughter dances, etc.  The album has 8 pages of different ladies formal dresses, men’s tux, and accessories such as clutch purses, jewelry, shoes, tux shirts and cummerbunds.  Done in Black, Red and Gold Cardstock.

This is a basic book ready for you to add your own bling to if you wish. I love the contrast of the papers against the white, black and red and plain...But I know you will want to make it amazing with your own Stickles, jewels, etc.  Have fun.

When you preorder this kit, it will come with all the supplies needed to make it and a tutorial with .SVG files (To cut on your digital cutter) that will be emailed to you when the kits ships.

I'm also offering a Father-Daughter Dance Album.  This album is the same as the Oscars Album, however, the cover is different.  It will have chipboard letters on the cover that will state "Father Daughter Dance 2017".  It has a Ladies dress on the right side where the Oscar is. and will not have the shaped Oscar Hinges on the inside.  You will cut your own straight hinges to bind the book.

If you would like a wedding version of this album, just email me at:  TheGentlemanCrafter@gmail.com
