An A-Z of handmade cards - April A-Z Challenge 2022

Each post I will try to share around five or six pics of handmade cards, using different styles, methods and elements. For an added challenge, I will be working entirely from my craft stash! (I do have a ridiculous amount of papers, embelishments and what not to use!)

Bring in Spring With Floral Easter Quilling

I thought I’d share something a little different on the blog today! I’ve given quilling a bit of a go over the last year (I am by NO MEANS any sort of expert!) but I thought I’d attempt to bring in spring with some floral Easter quilling!

Easter - The Craft Room and Beyond

It’s been a mixed bag so far this month in terms of weather, so I thoguht I’d dig out my bright coloured paper strips and create something floral and fun!

Easy String Eggs – Quick Easter Crafts

I see these “easy string eggs” all over the place online, but rarely see HOW to make them. So I thought I’d put some together, and share the process here; in case you wanted to make some of your own!

On the desk...

So, they’re super easy to make, and you don’t need much in the way of supplies or preparation. There IS however a lot of mess, so what follows is a simple step by step process. Of course these work for any time; depending on the colour, and you can make them any size you like, using thread, or yarn or even string!

Simple Table Runner – Quick Easter Crafts

When thinking about Easter this year; and how I was going to create content aimed at everyone, not just kids; I geared my thoughts more towards home, than Easter itself. One easy thing to do; for any season, is creating a simple table runner to set the tone for the season.

On the desk...

A table runner Kay, Really? Honestly, it’s true though. We don’t have much in the way of dressing for our dinner table; (which is usually home to piles of junk; and very occasionally my sewing machine). It’s mostly covered with an oilcloth tablecloth, with a bright funky diner design. But sometimes it’s nice to clear it off and actually eat there; and making a bit of a feature of it, makes it more special. And it’s EASY!

Mini Easter Canvas Art – Quick Easter Crafts

As we’re still in Lockdown; and I wanted to up my seasonal content; I’ve been looking for some fun Easter crafting. Mostly because I just want fun things to work on! I was checking out some quick things to do and found some cute mini Easter Canvas squares, which seemed just the thing!

On the desk...

So I love a bit of colouring, it’s relaxing, and colour in canvasses are easy to do with a handful of pens, if you don’t want the hassle of dealing with paint! I should point out, although I have worked with Hobbycraft in the past; this post is not sponsored; I just wanted to share it!

Cute Mini Easter Cross Stitch

I’ve not done a lot in the way of seasonal crafting, aside from Christmas! So I thought, in the spirit of Lockdown fun, I would work on something for Easter! I’ll be busy in April, but thought I’d share it now. I picked up this cute Easter cross stitch kit from Hobbycraft online.

On the desk...

starting small I suppose, but who knows maybe I’ll do something else next year too. In the meantime it’s nice to work on something a bit different!

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Cricut. The following opinions and text are my own.
