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...

Topping texture pastes with glitter and embossing powders!

The Vintage Flourishes and Vintage Lace Doily stencils are our first ever stencils and we just can't stop crafting with them!! I'm going to show you a couple of techniques using texture pastes which have blown me away! It started off as an experiment and I stared at the end result in amazement and thought, yes I'm DEFINITELY trying that again! The incredible results seem to be a combination of the unusually thick mylar our stencils are made from (which gives...

Creativation 2020 – craft secrets revealed!

We're having a fantastic time at Creativation and it's so great to meet other crafters who love paper crafts as much as we do! I wanted to create some makes for our stand that were bright and bold to reflect how positive we feel about 2020. I went with a colour palette that scared me a little at first (I think we all tend to have favourite crafting colour combos that feel safe!). Well I was definitely out of that...

Elegant table decorations for weddings and parties!

These table decorations are absolutely stunning and are bound grab the attention of your guests! You can make them using either of our new Flutterings die sets, as both the Butterfly and Hummingbird look wonderful as table decorations! The tabs are handy for writing place setting names like this beautifully decorated napkin. A ribbon has been used to wrap the napkin and the other elements have all been die-cut from card. You can also attach the Flutterings Butterflies or Hummingbirds to...

Irene’s Floral Home Decoration!

  Hi everyone...a slightly belated Happy New Year to you all!    I don't know if you are the same as me when it comes to this time of year? Everywhere you look seems a little bit bare, now that the tree and decorations are packed away. Obviously the cold weather doesn't help either, so what better way to cheer myself up than by making a bright, floral piece of home decor using the Buds to Blooms Perfect Peonies photopolymer stamp set!...

Irene’s Christmas Keepsake!

Hi everyone! I thought I would make something a little bit different with my Beautiful Moments – Cold Days, Warm Hearts collection. We are due to have a new arrival of a baby girl in our family any time now...my cousin is about to give birth to her first child, so I thought why not make a picture celebrating her first Christmas? I have made this project on 12x12 mount board, so that afterwards it can be placed into a...

Ruth’s Sparkling Shaker Card!

I love to make interactive cards, and this is one to bring sparkle to any lucky recipient’s mantelpiece this festive season. Plus with the gorgeous Beautiful Moments – Cold Days, Warm Hearts Winter Days stamp set, it was a dream to make. If you’ve never made a shaker card before, you might think that it can be a bit tricky. But actually the process is very simple. Not the quickest, perhaps, but I definitely think it’s worth putting the time...

Irene’s sparkling winter wishes card!

Hi everyone! Well it's that time of the year again, and like most of you I've been busy making my Christmas cards. I absolutely adore the Beautiful Moments – Cold Days, Warm Hearts stamp sets. They are beautiful to stamp with. As a crafter, I am always looking for further ways to utilise the stamps in my collection, which is why I thought I would share this card with you. Here I have used the Winter Days stamp collection. I have...

Simple stamping and lots of sparkle!

The great thing about stamps is how versatile they are - if you want to break out and do something different, you can! Creating a bold stamped card doesn’t need to be complicated and in fact, sometimes simple is better. I’ll be the first to admit that I’ve had some bad stamping experiences over the years and most of the issues came from using cheap acrylic stamps and the wrong kind of inks. There are still times when I accidentally drop an...
