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

January Projects and Creativation News!

Good Morning!

Well, we made it to Phoenix on our whirlwind drive across Texas, New Mexico and then to Arizona.  It was a beautiful relaxing drive…BUT…I was so glad to see the lights of Phoenix last night.


I have a few things to share with you all the next few days…First, two new projects for January.  All the projects are preorder so that I can order the paper.

These projects can be found in my store and will be shipped no later than Feb. 1st and at that time the tutorials will be emailed to you...If you purchase the projects without paper (Comes with SVG files to cut your own paper with your digital cutter.) then they will ship out next week.

Over the next few days, I will be revealing all my CHA or Creativation projects, as I always do, starting tomorrow morning when the show opens...So excited to share them with you...Hope you like...See you back here tomorrow...

OK, back to The Gentleman Crafter January Projects...First up is...

The Valentines Violin!  








For those of you who requested a violin... for about 2 years now...It's Here!  Yahoooo!  The paper on the Valentines Violin will not be what is shown in the pictures above, however, I do have a bit of this paper left and if you email me, I could cut it in this paper collection.  As soon as I find a collection of paper for this violin (this weekend) I will sell the kit with paper.   

You can purchase the Valentines Violin HERE!

Luminary House Collection:  Ski Lodge!




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

The Ski Lodge is a romantic building covered with Authentique paper.  Sadly, it has a pair of skis that are propped up next to the front door.  They didn't make it into the picture but are included with the kit.  Looks so cute.  Just add a couple of battery operated tea lights and it's magic!  

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 ship.
