Maylikha Series: EI Project’s Handmade Impressions

photo and handmade piece by eylin of ei project Tassel earrings and dome keychains are the expertise of our second Maylikha artist. As this series continue to feature local creative entrepreneurs, we got in touch with Eylin, the woman who is able to fuse fun and elegance in her handmade products through her shop, the EI Project. A graduate of Industrial Design from UST, Eileen does greeting cards and gift items for the German Market professionally. Although she prefers "Eylin," she weaved the name of her business from the two letters of her name, EI. "I thought it would be more meaningful if E I initials would also stand for Expressions and Impressions since my creative endeavors mainly revolve on those two words," Eylin shared. Her way of expressing her creativity and passion is through her handmade trinkets, which include tassel earrings and glass dome keychains, which can be personalized ...

Unicorns, princesses, mermaids, and all magical creatures don't just appear in books and movies these days! We can watch them come to life in pieces we can use on a day to day basis. This is what Crafty Papillon Handmade Crafts and More creatively delivers through its well loved handmade resin collection and many more.

Our Favorite Sans Serif Alpha Dies

One of the many things I am not surprised I am asked a lot about is what are good alphabet dies to have. Because Alpha dies (along with sentiments dies) are always useful, it's always good to have them around. This is one of those times it even makes sense to have several of them. I am a minimalist crafter and even I like to keep a lot of these alphabet dies. Just as we work with fonts digitally or different writing styles in practical arts like calligraphy and lettering, alphabet dies are the way we play around with typography when it comes to papercrafting. I originally planned to provide a helpful list of alphabet dies that you could find on the market (and I still hope to!) but decided to work with one set in particular for today: the Xcut A5 Set: Alpha (Wedding Ever After) xcut - alphabet ...

Tiny Wedding Details You Can DIY To Make A Huge Difference

Weddings are always exciting. But they could also be exasperating at times. If you've ever been closely involved in wedding planning, you know that you need to go over the checklist at least a hundred times to make sure that you do not miss anything. However, sometimes the problem is in not being able to tick off all the items in the list, but it's in not having some items in the list in the first place. We can be so focused on the more noticeable needs like getting a photographer, booking a coordinator, and ordering flowers, that we tend to overlook smaller details, some more crucial the others.
