A few days ago I enjoyed an evening at the One of a Kind Spring show with some lovely friends. I haven’t been to the show in years, opting to hit up the local, indie craft shows instead. And although this show did feel more corporate than the smaller ones I’m used to, it was a fantastic experience with lots of familiar makers and I will definitely be returning for the next one.
A few years back I got really into making my own cards. Like really into making cards. I jumped head first into my new hobby by buying fancy tools and tons of stamps and so so so much paper. I made cards for everyone I knew for every occasion. And although my supplies haven’t been getting as much attention lately, I do get the urge to create now and again – that desire along with a constant need to declutter my paper stash led to the creation of these fun scrappy cards. I’ve included some basic instructions below but as you’ll see from the photo, you can really play around with the basic method to make this project your own.
One of my favourite things about our wedding (other than the actual getting married part of course) was all of the personal crafty touches. Thankfully, with Pinterest in it’s early, ad-free days and DIY wedding blogs popping up all over the internet, it was easy to find inspiration. In fact, I had so much fun using Pinterest for wedding planning that I kept on pinning long after the big day. Check out my board here.
