Trisha’s Elegant Nature’s Textures Postcard!

Hello fellow crafters,  I love the new Nature's Textures range, especially the beautiful Embellishment Pack! And the good news is, you can still buy the collection for an amazing price over at The Craft Store! As part of the Angela Poole Design Team, I made the card below and thought I would share some steps with you today of how to create it yourself.  Firstly, I started by cutting out the two birds on the small cream card found amongst the...

Happy Halloween! ONE die set, THREE different looks!

Halloween is such fun and my children are already super-excited about it! We do a bit of Halloween crafting every year and this year, I suggested making spooky Mummy cards using our Folksy Charm Dolls die set. I've already made Mrs Claus cards and Easter bunny cards using the die set. It seems to have become my go-to die set for most occasions! The kids' cards were a triumph and after tackling their glue mess (seriously, it was epic...

Sparkling Festive Frames cards!

Our Slot & Spin Festive Frames die set is one of my all-time favourite die sets! Its packed full of dies and mix 'n' match possibilities. When I prepared demos for our recent shows on The Craft Store, I couldn't believe that I hadn't previously FOLDED the snowflakes and baubles to make 3D Christmas shapes?! Now I love this die set even more because not only can you make beautiful spinning Christmas cards, but folding the pieces allows you to...

Angela Dodson’s stunning butterfly wreath!

  Hi everyone! I had so much fun creating this rainbow butterfly wreath with the brand-new Nature's Textures range by Angela Poole. One of my favourite things was to stamp onto tissue paper for the base of the wreath! Read on to see how I made it (yes there was a lot of fussy cutting and heat embossing!) But I LOVE how it turned out :) First, I selected a few of the texture stamps from the Nature's Textures Stamps &...

Sandra’s scrap-busting bookmarks!

Hello, I am Sandra and this is my first time posting on the Angela Poole blog! I made these sweet bookmarks by using the small doll head scarf from the Folksy Charm Dolls die set– it's a great scrap-buster! I was looking for ways of using up small sections of paper, especially the lovely patterns in the Folksy Charm 8in paper pack – I have a box full of leftover bits after die cutting!  I do hope you'll have a go;...

Zoe’s super stencil technique!

Hi everyone. I just love Angela's stencil designs, and have made this card using a clever embossing technique. Here's a short how-to so you can create a unique and striking 3D effect using your Folksy Charm collection! First, I created an 8 inch card base using one piece of A3 card. You could use two pieces of A4 card joined together if you prefer. I also cut a piece of coordinating card to 7.75 inches square to layer over the card...

Trisha’s sweet Dollface card!

Hello everyone! I hope you all love the Folksy Charm collection as much as I do...I had so much fun making the samples for the launch shows. I made this ‘Hello Dollface’ card using the new collection, and also used some of the Slot & Spin Vintage Frames dies. See below for steps on how to make this card!  First, I took a sheet of turquoise-shaded card from the Ocean Mist A4 Gradients card pack, and the largest doll die from...
