Free Mystery Item!

cue mysterious music

Imagine you are in a dark wood. The trees are like tall guardians of the treasures within. You feel safe and calm, in unison with the forest. You walk into a small clearing, the light of the full moon is illuminating a sparkling circle of dancing butterflies. They are darting around a small alabaster box that seems to vibrate with energy. It is encrusted with a symbol of a crescent moon. As you approach you feel the box resonating, as if calling out to you.
The trees hum. The moon smiles. The butterflies giggle. The box slowly opens.

Inside, there is a Free Mystery Item, just for you! (click “Download Image” on the right side, where the little green arrow is)

You carefully take the Mystery Item out of the box and feel all warm and fuzzy. As you slowly read the lines of text on the Item, you hear a faint sound behind you. It grows in volume, as if approaching rapidly. You briskly turn around and can’t believe your eyes. Your eyes flicker with excitement. You will have to tell your best friends about this…

The story continues, in our next newsletter…

VectoriaDesigns Second Birthday – coupon code

Dear friends,

Time flies.

It’s such a common statement that one sometimes forgets what it means. I had certainly forgotten about it, but it is undeniable: VectoriaDesigns is celebrating its second birthday today!

It has been quite an extraordinary voyage. I could never have imagined two years ago what VectoriaDesigns would look like today. I started making jewelry, mostly rings, earrings and later earcuffs.

As I had always felt very inspired to share my love of crafting and to help thecommunity out there, I started creating thorough tutorials on how to make earcuffs. These were quite successful in their own right, but for me they cleared the path for a revelation: I. simply. loved. digital image editing.

Soon I was spending more time playing around with pixels than making jewelry. And then I knew I had found my true vocation: VectoriaDesigns would become a digital playground, where I could realize my dreams, and help others to realize their wildest creative fantasies.

Create your own world…

All of this was made possible by you.
Your support, your inspiring interactions, your creative input, and the joy you gave me when showing what you created with my designs (more about that below!).
I could not have done it without you.

So let us celebrate YOU as well!

VectoriaDesigns offers you an exclusive coupon code: CELEBRATION

Use it in our shop to get a $2 discount on any sale over $5!
That’s a massive 40% off. Just because. We like you.

This exclusive promotion is valid for one week only and will end on March 6, so hurry to VectoriaDesigns and celebrate with us!

 

We have some more exciting news! We would like to put YOU in the spotlight.
Send us pictures of what you made with our images. The more the merrier. All kinds of creative expressions are welcome.
We will feature one of your creations in every newsletter, with a link to your shop!
This newsletter goes to thousands of crafters out there, it’s a great promotion for whatever it is you’re making.

So start sending us those pictures to VectoriaDesigns@gmail.com right now!

Tags

, , ,

This tutorial teaches you how to make a decorative tea bag holder for 6 tea bags. Makes a really nice gift for tea lovers and you can make them in any kind of style.

DSC01377xx

The Alice in Wonderland tea bag holder is embellished with an Alice in Wonderland image and filled with Alice in wonderland tea bag envelopes.

The steampunk tea bag holder is filled with Octopus tea bag envelopes.

DSC01382kopiexxx

Materials:

  • piece of card stock 11″ x 3″
  • 3 pieces of decorative paper 6″ x 6″
  • piece of scrap card stock 3″ wide
  • 6 tea bags, I used these envelopes
  • little piece of velcro
  • embellishments
  • thread

Tools:

  • scissors
  • pencil and eraser
  • ruler
  • scoring tool
  • scoring/cutting board
  • cork board
  • needle
  • circle punch (about 1/2 inch)
  • decorative corner punch (optional)

step 11. Take the 11″ x 3″ strip and put markings on the long side as shown in the picture. Don’t forget the mark in the middle of one short 

step 32. Connect the marking in the middle of the short side with the two markings closest to it on the long side and cut the corners off.

step 43. Optional: use a decorative corner punch to create a beautiful closure.

step 54. connect the other markings with a ruler and use a scoring tool to score along the ruler.

step 65. Take the 1.25″ rectangle on the left. Make markings like shown on the picture on either side of the rectangle and connect the markings with a ruler. Put the cover aside for a while.

step 7

6. Take a 6″ square piece of decorative paper and place it upside down. Put markings on either side as shown on the picture.

step 87. Connect the markings with a ruler and score along the ruler with a scoring tool.

step 9

8. Fold along the scored lines and put glue on the narrow part and close the sleeve.

step 109. Measure the center of each small side of the sleeve and mark it.

step 11

10. Take a circle punch and punch out half a circle on either side. Use the markings as a guide. 

step 12

11. Place markings 2 7/8 inch on either side of the sleeve, left and right. The markings will be almost in the middle.

step 13

12. Connect the markings with a ruler and score along the ruler.

step 14

13. Fold along the scored lines. Repeat steps 6 – 13 with the other two 6″ squares.

step 15

14. Take a 3″ piece of scrap card stock and draw a line from left to right. Put the card on a cork board and punch holes with a needle or a hat pin every 1/4 inch. There should be 11 holes. It might help to cut out a bit right next to the first and last hole for the next step. 

step 16

15. Use this card as a guide to punch holes in the middle of each sleeve (the narrow piece between the score lines you made in step 12).

step 17

16. Do the same on the three lines you drew on the cover in step 5.

step 18

17. The result so far. It’s not so clear on the picture but the cover has three rows of punched holes.

step 19

18. Fold the cover along the score lines.

step 20

19. Put a 30″ thread on a needle (more if you want to be sure). Place one sleeve on the cover and align the holes. Put the needle from the inside of the sleeve through both holes on one end.

step 21

20. Bring the needle back up through the second hole and make a double knot.

step 22

21. Put the needle in the third hole.

step 2322. Bring the needle back up through the second hole.

step 2423. Now always put the needle in two holes further and bring back up one hole back.

step 25

24. Repeat until the end of the row.

step 26

25. When finished bring the needle backwards again through the last hole but only through the sleeve, not the cover.

step 27

26. Take a second sleeve and put the needle up through the last hole.

step 28

27. Put the needle backwards through the second hole. From now on put the needle all the way through both sleeve and cover again.

step 29

28. Bring back up in the last hole. Now you can repeat steps 23 – 28 and add the third sleeve too.

step 30

29. This is what the tea bag holder looks like so far.

step 3130. Glue on some velcro to close the tea bag holder.

sflsjmfk DSC01376kopixxxe31. Embellish the tea bag holder like you want. I used items from a scrapbooking kit from Ikea and an Alice in Wonderland image in an oval setting with a glass on top. A tutorial for the tea bag envelopes and tags can be found here

Although I have two online digital collage sheets shops and Photoshopping is my passion, I also used to love making jewelry. An opportunity got me to pick up my old pliers again and I started making ear cuffs.

The results you can find in my new shop: VectoriaCuffs.

Here are some examples of my work:
