YAY! It’s the weekend! I hope you all had a crafty creative one!
I have been playing around with a new Craftwork Cards kit called ‘Celebrations’ which is bright, cheerful and truly great to work with. It’s one of my favourite kits ever! In the Project of the Month kit you get a pad of beautiful papers, (which is truly amazing, and worth the £15 that I paid on it’s own!) various pop out embellishments and sentiments as well as cards and envelopes to make 20 cards! You can get so much more than 20 cards out of this kit though.. I even made a matching gift tag! I totally love how versatile and unisex it is, it’s so bright and colourful but not too childlike, I find suitable for all ages!
Below I’ve posted some Inspiration for you as always, enjoy!
You can find this kit on the Craftwork Cards website, right here. It’s currently Free P&P! I had so much fun with this kit and I hope you do too!
Have those January birthday’s crept up on you? You’re only just over Christmas yet those January celebrations are looming? Here’s a quick and easy card!
First of all, grab a birthday cake shaped card, or maybe cut one out of your scan and cut! Shaped cards are still very popular and can be found easily in packs of 5 or cut it out by hand.
Next, grab a die that’s a great background. I’ve used my favourite ever birthday die from Tattered Lace which I think works really well here!
I wanted to make be candles look lit, but I am rubbish at colouring and wanted a bit of sparkle! I used rhinestones here.
Last of all, I wanted the candles to stand out so I used some chevron style washi tape, this particular one is from La-de-Dah.
..and Viola! A very easy, quick yet effective card for those last minute birthday card makes!
Bank holiday weekend is here and I am off and thought I would get some crafting in! Last week I bought some Trimcraft Christmas Washi Tape from ‘The Range’ to experiment with as I have never used it before!
Turns out as long as you have something to decorate it’s not difficult to make some truly lovely and very homemade looking.
I decorated a candle first and luckily the tape is very forgiving and peels off easily for you to have a few attempts. It has a masking tape feel to it but a nice adhesive that will stick to almost anything I think, I haven’t found anything it won’t stick to yet!
I moved into a kraft card box which had come with some jewellery I got a while ago. What a transformation! I can’t wait to give this box to a lucky loved one this Christmas.
I can’t express how easy this is and what a great professional touch it gives to any item. Go wild with some Washi!
