Hi lovely crafty friends, we are already in the middle of July which means we have entered summer holiday season. Whether you are going away or staying at home, having your own kids to entertain or grandkids come over, paper crafting is always fun.
So I have lined up a bunch of fun crafts to do in summer or winter depending on where you are based:-)
Using plain cardstock is always a cool way to see where your creativity is taking you. It comes in many colours and the possibilities are endless.
In this video tutorial, I show you lots of ways to make cardstock-only cards and use up scraps too. With dies and embossing folders you can take them to the next level in a super simple way. Besides using some glue it is basically mess-free as well!
Here is a list of some of my favourite cardstock and tools for you to check out.
Next in line is a fun or fancy fold card. The SLIDE TO HIDE SECRET LOCK CARD is pretty easy to make. All you need is cardstock and patterned paper, some tape and glue. Fancy your cards up with some die-cut shapes or leave them plain to add a sentiment later.
You can even make it outside while getting some fresh vitamin D, make sure to bring a paperweight or use a rock so the paper doesn’t try to escape:-)
Use the GUIDE to pre-cut the patterned paper and cardstock. You can grab the GUIDE below, just leave your name and email and instructions are coming your way!
When you are having a holiday or in summer or any other season for that matter, keeping it simple can be a great way to tone things done.
