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!
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!
Watch this space 😉
Lots of girls and boys will be celebrating passing their GCSEs tomorrow including a work experience girl we have working with us at the moment, so I made her a little something to say Congrats!
Good luck to everyone expecting results this year!
Pop Up Box cards are a brand new craze in the crafting world right now, the more popular they get the more kits companies bring out so bring it on!
I bought a kit that was pre cut and scored by Craftwork Cards but they are very simple to make from scratch. I just folded it in the right places, and put double sided sticky tape in the right places. Sticking it together isn’t a work of origami fortunately! (I suck at Origami)
Once you have the base card you are free to decorate! My kit came with panels that i just had to guilloutine them to size and stick them on the sides. Next I popped out the embellishments and stuck them on the sides and on the cardboard sticks that all came with the kit. Decorating was really fun! Best of all they fold flat to put in an envelope and send without additional charges!
