Craft cards

My mum follows my blog so thank you for all your kind comments about her knitting expertise, she was thrilled.

I treated myself to a paper craft kit. I had really got down to the paper scraps and the children had been diving in and taking all the good bits!

I bought a kit called 'Sew Lovely' by Do Crafts. This weekend, in little snippets of time, I have enjoyed making cards for my crafty family members: my aunts, my mum, my next door neighbour and crafty friends.

I used the insert picture as inspiration and loved this craft pocket format. I repeated it in various different guises.

Of course, making cards creates scraps so I finished off my weekend of card making with a little card using the bits left on the table.

All stocked up for the ladies, now I need some cards for men - a much trickier affair.

Happy Crafting Jo xxxx


  1. CUTE! Isn't it fun to play around with paper? I love all the shapes and doo dads in the scrapbooking aisle.

  2. Much more creative than the boxes of cards I just bought, Jo. Good for you and for the folks that receive them :)

  3. What a fun paper pack, it is nice to make cards that reflect the crafty theme for fellow crafters isn't it. xx

  4. What a great pack and I am sure those beautiful cards will be well received.

  5. Lovely cards, looks like a lot of fun.

  6. Great cards, looks like a fun pack! I know what you mean about the children pinching the good bits though lol we have a severe case of that in this house, not to mention a scissor thief!

  7. Look at this set! How fantastic and your card is lovely!!!! When do you find the time! So inspiring Jo!!! Wishing you a wonderful week! Nicole xo

  8. Oh my goodness, your cards are amazing! I love them so much, I feel inspired to make some for family and friends as well:) Wish me luck.....
