Day 4: What's your craft?

Craft Blog Everyday in June

Day 4: What's your craft? What is it about your craft that floats your boat so much?

So if you've been a follower of my blog for a week, a year.. or even a day.. you will know that my t'ing is.. CARDMAKING.

Okay, so I dabble in SMASH*, 'scrapbooking' and 3D projects every now and then.. but not very often.

Why do I love CARDMAKING so much?! Simple. It involves paper.

People often ask where I get my inspiration from, and aside from all of the lovely crafters on FB and blogs I follow.. the patterned paper I use really guides me in the right direction. Infact, I find it incredibly difficult to create a project with no patterned paper.

Okay, so enough of the P word, hah! Embellishments are another massive factor behind my card making ventures. I love how much variety there is from flowers, to brads and buttons (which are three of my faves) to washi tape, ribbon and die cuts (which I'm using a lot more of than I used to).

Cards are also a chance to give a little piece of your creativeness and share it with friends and family. 

As a lot of you know, I love to colour up images too, which always look best adorning the front of a card. 

Can't wait to hear what other peoples crafts are and what they like about it!



  1. Do you know I haven't tried washi tape yet? I hear so much about it and everyone raves about it but I am a washi virgin. I must address this soon as and try it

  2. Paper does it every time! Have got Smash on my to do list


I would love to hear what you think. Thanks for taking the time to look. xo Lou.
