Just Because Cards: April A-Z

Day 10! In case you missed it; It’s that time again, A-Z Challenge season! This month I am keeping things simple; sharing makes past and present, as well as a few I’ll try to create just for the challenge! Today I am sharing some sweet Just Because cards, ideal for happy mail!

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!)

Handmade Happy Mail 2021

I usually send handmade happy mail out every now and again; to friends and family. A little something sweet through the letterbox is fun to both send and receive! I had a chilled evening recently and decided to make a whole bunch of cards, so I had some ready!

Happy Mail

I’ve had one particular matching set of card blanks for a while now. I love the cute patterns and colours, as well as the style of the open front ones! This week I spent one evening choosing various coordinating toppers, to make around 25 handmade cards!

Valentines Gifts You Can Send in the Post

I was having a think this week about Happy Mail; and given the time of year, and the current situation here in the UK; it made me think of what Valentines gifts (or “galentines” etc etc) you could send in the post.

Feel the Love

So I thought I’d do a little post sharing some ideas, great if you wanted to step away from the simple flowers and chocolates, or even if you were just looking for ideas to send something nice to a special friend!

And as a bonus I’m also sharing a super cute and easy craft idea anyone can do, for almost any occasion!

October Round Up – What I Got Up To

This Month

There was quite a lot going on in October, and as I was sharing a lot of Blogtober content, some things didn’t quite fit anywhere; so, I thought I’d share a few things in this post.

Traveller Notebooks – For a Blogging Journey

I am a self-confessed stationery addict. Needing to stay organised; I have notebooks all over the place; an essential for everyone, blogger, traveller or just those that are busy! But recently have been utterly lost because my handbag sized notebook ran out; and I hadn’t got round to buying one! I just couldn’t find one that suited what I needed…

It is used for a lot; mostly blog planning and social media, but considering I’m also running #CraftBlogClub, I note down chat plans too. And then there’s day-to-day to-do list stuff.

Chatting on #CraftBlogClub fairly recently Sarah was sharing her handmade Traveller Notebooks from her site: Adventure Accessories. Which are utterly beautiful –
