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!
There will be a few regular posts appearing here on The Craft Room and Beyond each week or so, as well as each month, and one of those weekly (or possibly fortnightly) updates will be “On the Desk” each or every other Wednesday, where l will head into the craft room and share what I’m up to…
We have Santa and snowman themed pegs for our cards; as we don’t have much space for putting cards up. Before that we have used the age old classic string across the wall! If you want to get creative and make your own Christmas card hanger; I thought I’d share how super simple it is!
We are lucky enough to get quite a few cards at Christmas time. I usually participate in at least one card swap; as well as sending to a few online friends. Sometimes I then offer to send a handmade card or two online if I have any left; as I make them all in one go, and sometimes end up with extras! So keep an eye on Twitter!
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!
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 posts as part of Blogmas, I will make and share four different cards to fit the theme. Today I’m sharing some handmade Christmas sparkle cards in black, white and gold.
All of my handmade cards are produced using a variety of methods; just to show how versatile it can be, making your own. If you want to know how I make a specific card in more detail; get in touch, and I can explain further on the Facebook page.
