It’s fairly officially autumn! All golden colours, warm tones and change. It’s my favourite season, and it’s such a nice time of year to get cosy, and do some crafting!
SO for this months handmade card share, I’ll be sharing some cards with autumnal colours and themes. Using different styles and methods.

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.
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!

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.
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….

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.
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.

I love giving handmade cards celebrating with people; whether it’s birthdays, weddings or a new baby. There is something so much more personal making something bespoke, and cards are great fun to design and plan. You can read more about my card making journey in this post.
Every month I have been sharing some of the cards I have made, including recent creations, and makes from the past. Partly so I have somewhere I can remember, and also it shows a lot of them in one go, so I don’t produce repetitive content making several cards in a month!

I’ve really been feeling the spring in the air this month! It’s all about bright colours, florals and getting out and enjoying it!
With that in mind, I thought I’d do the same with my cards this month, today’s cards are full of bright colours, fun patterns and pretty floral designs, past and present!
Ah February, such a mixed month! But of course we had Valentines Day a little while ago, so it seemed only appropriate to share some of my LOVE themed handmade cards this month!
So, here are some handmade cards, all about love. These are cars I have made for anniversaries, Valentine’s Day, and weddings past and present!

When it comes to celebrating, I love giving handmade cards, they feel so much more personal, and are enjoyable to design and plan.
Every month, at least for a while(!) I will do a card post, to share some of the cards I have made, including recent creations, and makes from the past.

Before I begin, I should introduce the #CraftBlogClub Secret Santa. For a couple of years now I have taken part in the #CraftBlogClub ‘Secret Santa’ gift swap.
What is #CraftBlogClub?
Every Tuesday I participate in a Twitter chat – “#CraftBlogClub” which takes place between 7 and 8pm. It is simply a place to chat about blogging, and crafting with less of a focus on selling than many other Twitter chats.
Which for people like me, who craft as a hobby, is refreshing – and a great way to meet like-minded people online – without being bombarded with sales content. (Don’t get me wrong, I love to buy handmade, but I like to have a choice in when and where I choose to shop.)
#CraftBlogClub also have challenges throughout the year, and I have taken part for the last couple of years. The most recent ‘challenge’ for #CraftBlogClub was set, the Secret Santa gift swap. We all submit our names, and get emailed with someone else at random, to make a gift for! And in return someone gets your name, and you receive a nice surprise in the post!
Of course I couldn’t post about this particular swap until after Christmas, but before I do that, I thought I would go back and share previous swaps!
