Adventures in Card-Making

Word Ghosts need your help!

Dear Fellow Crafters,

I need your help! Word Ghosts for the month of September has reached an impasse. The “word” for the month was “experiment” but I can’t find many craft quotes that are pertinent. Please comment below with one crafting or other pertinent word that we can use for next month. I appreciate this help in advance!



Adventures in Card-Making

Facebook Groups, websites, Blogs, Pinterest and U-tube!!

Dear Fellow Crafters,

If you’re into Facebook, then you know about Groups. Groups can be just as addicting as Pinterest pins. You can be scrolling along and then up pops this amazing video or card or idea and you are at once enthralled with the group. You can be overcome with joy for the moment but your personal page can be inundated with your Group Friends all willing to share their creation with you. So what’s a crafter to do? Share of course!

Below are some of the Groups I belong to. WARNING!! Don’t become addicted.

Adventures in Card-Making

The story continues… The third part

Dear Fellow Crafters,

The saga continues about That Folder:

The design team uses feedback from subscribers in Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, UK and USA along with their facebook page and Instagram as well as team collaboration for product ideas. The team is working on a re-design of a popular design with a cross over of dies and stamps.
As of this writing, Craft Stash has begun the rolling out of an exclusive stained glass collection. They’ve already launched additions to the All Occasion Collection  with 3 new folders, a die set (I’m on the wish list for that one!) and a stamp set. (I just got mine!)
So, as you can see, there is so much going on behind the scene. Be sure to follow CraftStash for their latest rollouts. My thanks to everyone at Practical Publishing for their assistance in telling the story of That Folder!

I usually don’t send copies of other blogs or newsletters but this was in my email today and I had to share. It comes from Craftstash:

Send us what you’ve made with “THAT” folder!

The world-wide phenomenon is being taken to the next level… Our friends at Papercraft Essentials magazine first featured ‘THAT Folder’ in issue 122, and now they’re looking for your creations to feature in an All-Occasions Collection Special for issue 153!

The winner will feature on the cover of the supplement, along with runners up being inside the special too!

How to enter:

1. Create a fantastic card using any of the All-Occasion Collection embossing folders, stamps or dies.

2. Include the steps you took to make your card on a separate sheet, along with a list of materials.

3. Write your name, email address and title of your card on the back.

4. Post your card and notes to:

PE153 Comp, Practical Publishing 217 Wellington Road South Stockport Cheshire SK2 6NG

Entries must be received by 15th September and cards will not be returned. One entry per person.


Happy Crafting,
