Card of the Week: Let It Snow

The Crafter’s Companion stamp set from Creative Stamping 100 really did make it easy for this year’s Christmas cards. And, with talk of a 67% chance of a white Christmas (I think that’s what I read somewhere), I thought I’d share a snowy sort of card. The snowflake stamps came from the sensibly-named Glittering Snowflakes… Continue reading Card of the Week: Let It Snow

Notes From My Office: November 2021

This last month has had a lot of time thinking about and planning for Christmas. Here, with the updated Advent calendar and considering back-up plans in case of sudden restrictions (especially now with the Omicron variant), and in the Office with Christmas lunches and all the other festivities of the season.

I was particularly pleased for the religious-themed quarter of stamps,… Continue reading Card of the Week: Peace on Earth

Including this one, made using a House Mouse stamp from Stampendous, and coloured with pencils. A very simple sort of card: just stamp and stick. And colour. House Mouse stamps are very good for cute,… Continue reading Card of the Week: Mice Making Popcorn

The Crafter’s Life: November 2021

With just under two months to go before Christmas, now is the time most card-makers will begin to panic about Christmas cards. Unless they’re the extra organised sorts of people who have already made all their festive cards. Some crafters might be thinking about making gifts, although those take longer so should have been started… Continue reading The Crafter’s Life: November 2021
