A Gorjuss stepper card I made. Absolutely love Gorjuss designs, they’re so cute! Very proud that I can now make stepper cards :)
Make a paper chain
This page is now in Italy, with the lovely Fab - you can see her pictures of it on her blog. It was meant to be a swap but unfortunately when she sent me hers, the envelope was savaged by a wild postman and the page was lost. So instead I count this as giving away my favourite page, and I’ll stick a photo of it in instead.
This was the first page I did. Despite the risk of papercuts to the lip/tongue, it was quite fun!
I discovered distress inks stain your fingertips… Oh well, it was still fun!
The card I made for father’s day, and it alongside the embroidered PigeonJon tweet I gave dad. I made wrapping paper that matched the card, and homemade washi tape that said “dad” all along it. It was a pretty handmade father’s day, all-in-all!
What’s that? You want to make letters to your penpals more awesome, but you just don’t know how? Well fear no more, I have a solution.
Over at WreckThisGirl’s Etsy shop you can buy wonderful cards designed and printed by Fab herself. There’s a card perfect for tea lovers, pen pals and even those who need an emergency disguise once in a while (spoiler: it involves a moustache!) She even sells collage kits she puts together herself, perfect for any scrapbooker or papercrafter.
So, for awesomeness in card form, look no further! Fab’s got it sorted for you.
Finished! Took me about a month. A lovely design called New Heights from the Gorjuss range, I love Gorjuss designs. The kit was made by a lovely little British company called Bothy Threads and it was wonderful to work with. I’ll be buying another design as soon as I can! :)
New buttons! Including some with cute little faux stitching detail, one shaped like a guitar pick and also - most exciting - a button with three holes! I’ve been looking for one for ages. So chuffed I found one. I’m such a button nerd >.<
