I thought I’d share something a bit different today, and that’s some handmade Disney cards!
I make cards as and when they’re needed; but rarely do what I did this week, which is make a few at once!
I’ve been working through my stash for ages; only buying what I really need, and this is something that I’ve had in a drawer for AGES! This was originally picked up because I (of course) love all things Disney, but it has since just sat there since, pretty much not getting used!
I found the kit in a drawer; while coming up with a card idea I will need soon, but thought, why not make up the rest too!

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Cricut.The opinions and text are all mine.
If there was any craft item on my ultimate wish list. It would be the Cricut Maker, the ultimate smart cutting machine! For someone that does as varied a selection of crafts as I do, it is truly a must-have, for so many reasons.
The hard thing for me, is that it doesn’t come cheap, so is it something I could make the best use of? Is it right for me? I don’t really know what it can be used for. I’m sure there are others out there who feel the same way. If that’s you, read on!

Valentines Day, is something neither Stu or I take very seriously, though we sometimes give fun gifts to each other anyway! Valentines day is only a couple of weeks after Stu’s birthday; so we tend to be fairly relaxed about it. But I love a bit of seasonal crafting, so, here are some crafty Valentines gift ideas!
This post contains items sent to me from Hobbycraft as a gift. These gifted items are clearly marked with an *
It is however a chance to do a bit of crafting here on the blog; though I would say that although some are Valentines product; they could easily be gifts for many occasions; from birthdays, anniversaries to Mothers Day (March 31st this year, UK readers), and of course weddings!

Happy New Year! And Hello 2019! I’m feeling refreshed and motivated with the change of the calendar; the clean page in a diary and the new start, that all come with a new turn around the sun.
The last few months have been a whirlwind of activity here on the blog, with blogmas and even before that; and I am really hoping this will continue. I’d like to begin by thanking you – without you here, reading, leaving likes and comments and sharing on Social Media; this little blog would be far less successful! So thank you for stopping by!
This year, I have a few things lined up already; I am going to carry on posting as usual on Tuesdays and Fridays; but occasionally might add one or two in the week to keep things interesting! It will be the usual mix of craft, days out, and randomness!

This time of year especially, it is nice to send a little note of thanks to certain people. I thought I’d share some fun creative Thank You card ideas in this post. Of course I make all of my cards, but even if this is not the usual, it can be a nice personal touch to thank somebody for a gift.

As in my previous card making post as part of Blogmas, I will make and share four different cards to fit the theme. Today I’m sharing some more traditional Christmas cards.
These are produced using a variety of methods; just to show how versatile it can be, making your own cards.
