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!

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.

I’ve created handmade cards for so long, but I don’t really share them on the blog anymore! I thought I’d take this opportunity in a fairly quiet month, to look back at some of my favourite makes!
I keep planning on sharing, my cards nowadays, and then don’t! So in the meantime, I’m digging out some pics of old handmade cards, so excuse the weird cropping and bad lighting…

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 –

Disneyland Paris 25th Anniversary celebrations, was our second Disney holiday, and of course I planned to create a scrapbook of the trip, but it took me over a year to actually get it done!
Now the book is finished, I took some photos of my layouts and thought I’d share it here!
If you’d like to see more of my travel scrapbooks, let me know. I have different books from a few different places, including Prague, our first Disney trip and Paris, and a few of different years of general scrapbooking, so leave me a comment if you enjoy this post and would like to see more!

The EK Tools Circle Punch in this post was gifted, all opinions are my own.
As a paper crafter (OK amongst many things!) I am really familiar with EK Success, their stickers, papers and punches are well-known and widely available online, even here in the UK, my Amazon wishlist contains far too many of their products (Disney range much!) This is of course even before I mention my slight Smash Book addiction (I’m up to six)
I follow them on Instagram; because they post loads of fun project ideas and inspiration!
Recently I was a bit cheeky, and admitting I didn’t have a circle punch, I jokingly asked if they’d send me one to take part in a challenge over on Instagram… And to my surprise they did! Very quickly I received this EK Tools Large Punch – 2 ½” circle punch. Obviously a HUGE thank you goes out to them! I’ve wanted one of these for ages!
I said as they had been so kind I would review it here on the blog, so here we go….
