Happy Mail Fun!

I love getting “fun” post.

There’s something great about hearing the letter box and seeing more than junk mail and bills, and so over the last few months I’ve been trying to do the same thing.

A while ago now, Claire posted on Instagram about wanting to send out some cards, just a bit of “Happy Mail”, and I jumped at the chance. What a fun idea, and something to look forward to!

November 2017 Handmade Cards – Transport

This month I thought I’d share some transport themed cards. It seems I make a lot of cars with trains, bikes and cars on them, or so it appears!

I can’t believe I’ve been doing these cards posts all year; I’m thinking of having a break next year, but possibly also doing some individual card posts over on Instagram or something. If you have any preferences, do let me know in the comments.

Handmade Cards

Every month I have been sharing some of the cards I have made; including recent creations, and makes from the past. You can check out the first one here, with a little more explanation.

November 2017 – This Month

Hello November!

This Month

I love November, Autumn is my favourite season, with all the colour, and warm tones. It’s still nice enough to go for walks, but not so bad when there’s a rainy day and you get to snuggle up under a blanket with a film and a mug of hot chocolate! And right at the end of course is my Birthday, which is always fun! Though unlike last year I won’t be hiding in another country!

So here’s what I have planned this month…

September 2017 – Handmade Cards- Stars

This month I’m sharing somehandmade cards using stars as decorative elements.

I’ve posted groups of some of my handmade cards for several months now, starting with an introduction in this post, and of course you can also check out last month’s post here.

Handmade Cards

September is a quiet month for cards, so it’s a great chance to have a clear out of my stash! I hoard papers and elements all over the place in the craft room; I really need to figure out a way to organise them; so if you have any tips, do leave me a comment!

August 2017 Handmade Cards – Music

I’ve been looking through my photos of handmade cards, and listening to music this week, which is how I came up with the theme of my August card sharing post!

I actually only have one Birthday to make for in August, which is why I have spread out my posts about card makes through the year.

Handmade Cards

These handmade card posts would be hugely erratic otherwise! There are also the rare occasions I have no cards to make? (Very rare, I think one month has no birthdays!) Of course I do make cards all year, for happy mail, notes to friends and family, as well as other special events….

July 2017 Handmade Cards – Water and Sea

It’s that time again, where I share some of my handmade cards; this month I’m sharing some ocean, water and sea inspired cards.

I’ve shared a few of these posts now, though the initial post in January explains more.

Handmade Cards

I love giving handmade cards, they feel so much more personal, and are enjoyable to design and plan. It began when I started to struggle to find ‘the perfect card’ for people, in shops.
