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!
On Sunday, I held a Crafternoon where friends and friends of friends came over to mine and I taught them my skills in crafting and got them to make a Mother’s Day card, gift bag, gift tag and gift box.
We used a variety of products and they were persuaded to bring their own craft stuff too, one lady nearly brought her entire craft room which was lovely as some of the things were unopened as she had no idea how to use them, and helping her was fab.
There was even a gentleman crafter who put us all to shame and set the creative bar high!
We made so many lovely things and ended up making £40 for Comic Relief/Red Nose Day which is fantastic!
They even said they want to come again! Maybe this is the start of something new and exciting as I’ve always wanted to teach craft classes!
