We made these boxes together with hubby. They are not the best, but prototypes!

I tried to do some crafting today again as tomorrow we will be busy with wedding. Well, this card didn't come out as I wanted, but as someone said, it is just paper. If I don't like it I can chuck it in the bin.

I made this card for a wedding which will take place this Sunday. I used the same technique from the previous card, only A5 size instead of 13.5x13.5cm one.

I had to find a solution to place some gift vouchers in the card, so I tried to make some corners from the paper I used on the front. I am quite proud of it, but took me two hours to finish.

I was also cheeky and went to Card Factory to get some wrapping paper, which I used at the front and inside the card too.

Another card I have just finished. I looked up a lot of card crafting tutorials on youtube and I fancied to make this one, as it is quite simple to assemble. It is harder to decorate as I wanted to make it colour coordinated.

Right. First of all I blame you Donks as I am so hooked that all what I can think of is new ideas of making cards!!! I think I need therapy or something like that.

Yesterday we were at the Proms, listening to Strauss' and Beethoven's most beautiful pieces and all what I could think of is crafting. Instead appreciating the music, the musicians and the conductor I was imagining cards. ARGHHH! What a waste!

Anyways. I am in love with some newly find card stock paper, but I am not getting them at the moment. These are from Crafter's Companion, pastel coloured card stock. Oh, I could spend a lot of money on it. Fortunately, my crafting friend gives me advice about buying craft essentials. And she recons it would be too early, which is true. I am still so clumsy with paper and have a lot to learn.

Until that I only have one option: practice!

And this is my latest one. I used Poundland glitter paint, glitter glue and felt tips. They are good for beginners, shame I don't have mores shades to colour.I used my friend's stamps again, which I have got quite a lot of them.
This is a Thank you card for my crafting friend, I hope she likes it.

On this one I tried out embellishing and I loved it. It is so simple to make and although not a winner again, I enjoyed making it.
