A Simple Little Gift

Hello there,

just a very quick post today.

I recently came across a version one of these simple little boxes of cards from many moons ago when our children were small and I used to make them to sell at craft fairs. Each year I would include a set, with simple thank you cards inside, for each child in their Christmas stocking so the means were always to hand when the thank yous had to be written - each having a different design/colourway saved squabbles, and I think relatives enjoyed the variety of handmade happy mail.

The red version above, which was Wednesday's workshop 'for instance', is made with just the signature sheet from Carta Bella's Beautiful Moments collection,
and the blue version, which I made during the class, features Authentique's Loyal collection.
The stamps I used in both are by JOFY for PaperArtsy, part of the new seasonal release, not necessarily Christmas although the parcels certainly could be and all the cards were simply stamped and paper pieced.
There are always lots of fairs and other events in aid of various charities at this time of year and this is a simple little project that makes a great gift for a non card maker, (I sometimes just include the greetings already on foam tape so the recipient can make the cards suit the person/occasion they need), or donation to a local charity to help them raise funds.
I have been asked to run this one again and will try to find a slot very early in December, so look out for the December timetable published towards the end of next week.
back soon xx


  1. These are wonderful and I have been going through many of your posts and being truly inspired. Once upon a time I stamped all the time, then I kind of got out of it . . . finding your blog has made me realize how much fun I'm missing :)
    Thank you,
    Your newest follower, Connie :)
    P.S. I would be honored to have you follow me back.
