Craft Design Team Announcement - I'm On Team Mama Makes

Hi Everyone,

I have some very exciting craft news to share. Although I always make for myself, I have done some blogs here and there for design team/blogger network stuff. Although Sarah Hurley's Team is now disbanded, both this and Baker Ross have been great opportunities, and challenges. I have loved getting back into stamping, and thinking up ideas for products I have never used before (thanks Baker Ross).

You'll still see some Baker Ross makes about on here and social media - look out for the #BRBloggers or #BRCraftClub hashtags, but in the meantime I have exciting new design team news. I have been chosen as a member of Mama Makes!

Mama Makes is a new crafting brand set up by Loti, who has a background in craft TV, in fact she is the voice in the ear on the production floor. It's always amazing to see people inspired by craft, and getting to the point where they can bring their ideas to life and create their own products, and that's just what Loti has done.

Mama Makes is a craft brand stampers will love - whether you stamp for making cards, mixed media work, gift boxes and bags, scrapbooking, or journalling. One thing I've discovered more recently from joining some craft blogging groups, and visiting other blogs, is just how many uses there are for them, beyond just stamping, colouring in the image and placing it on card. If you're more up on background techniques then you'll have even more options.

Check out www.mamamakesandbakes.co.uk/shop for the full selection of stamps currently released. There's motivational sayings, cute icons and images, and new Christmas stamps. There's also an exciting TV launch of the stamps on the 16th of August on Hochanda. Watch the shows on Hochanda at 11am and 2pm.

So exciting to be chosen as part of Team Mama, and if any of the other design team members are reading this, I can't wait to see what you all make. Thanks again to Loti for choosing me, and I look forward to seeing what the next 6 months (at least) of stamping and crafting will hold.

Action Themed Handmade Card - Daring Cardmakers Challenge

Hi Everyone, Hope you're all having a good week! Just want to say thanks to all of you that have been reading and commenting on my blog posts, especially the recent craft ones, joining in with the Daring Cardmakers challenges. I don't always have time to blog along, but this week the theme was 'action', and it was the perfect excuse to make a card with a topper kit I have had laying around for ages. The card I made is perfect for sports fans of all ages, and as a big diving fan, I'm sure this one will be a lot of fun for all. My main image and some of the extra bits are from a Hunkydory kit, I just love the image of the guy diving and his reflection shown in the water.  Copyright 2017 - These City Days I found some aperture cards in my stash and I'm enjoying decorating round the edges and adding some dimension to the designs. This time I went for a few sentiments, stars punched from holographic card, and some jute twine from Baker Ross.  I am slight

Daring Cardmakers - Trim The Tree Craft Challenge - Cross Stitch Card

Hi Everyone, It's the start of another week, and I'm fresh from seeing some of my favourite musical friends, for the first time in a long while, at our Christmas light switch on. I have some video, but I have never edited video clips in my life, so while I figure out what I'm doing, time to catch up on some other blog posts. I have joined in and submitted craft projects to the Daring Cardmakers Challenge before, and it's been great fun. So I just want to thank everyone who has commented on my previous posts, and add to this weeks challenge 'Trim The Tree'. I am working my way through a few small cross stitch kits from magazine free gifts, and this tree design really stuck out from my stash. It was easy and fun to stitch, and I even tweaked it a bit to add some gold glitter for the star at the top. Instead of hanging it in the supplied aperture card though, I found a plant pot topper with 25 on, and mounted it on a card just above that. The finished car

3 Ways With Mama Makes Bohemian Border Stamps

Hi Everyone, There's a little bit of a crafty overload here and on social media at the moment, but there are other posts planned and in draft form, so please look out for those, they just take a little bit of time to put together. Meantime I wanted to share the Mama Makes Bohemian Border stamps. I am a member of the design team, but bought these as I really liked the range of different designs - there are 10 in total, and had quite a few ideas of what I could do with them. I thought I'd post the stamps below, and 3 very different makes I came up with using them. 1) A Christmas Card - The Bohemian Border here I used as a Christmas garland, and absolutely love how it looks all coloured and glittered (had to get a little sparkle in there). The other thing I like about this set, is some of the designs are more of a bunting/garland shape, and not just a straight line, so there are handy gaps you can decorate with stick on gems or small embellishments for a finishing touch.
