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.

Gift card with handmade earrings!

It's such a worrying time for everyone right now, and with the sound advice to stay at home and stay safe, I'm finding that crafting is a good distraction.

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...

Flutterings stencil technique using spray inks!

The decorative borders from our new Flutterings die sets took some time to design, mainly because they're just so intricate, but it was totally worth it because the finished sets are absolutely stunning! As well as using them to cut a decorative edge into an A5 card, or trimming them to make border strips, you can also use them as stencils. I wanted to share an exciting technique with you that I discovered whilst experimenting with spray inks! Of course,...
