Easter Cards – Handmade in minutes

It’s a pretty nasty day today – cold, wet and windy. A day just perfect for crafting.

Easter is still a bit away but I thought I get ahead and create some Easter cards. Yes, I am the person who still sends Easter Cards (I also still send birthday cards – what can I say… I am old-fashioned). These cards are easy to create in minutes. I make each one individual so each one is slightly different but you can also go into ‘mass production’ by doping one step on all cards before moving on the next etc.

I used A6 cardstock – that is A5 folded in half. Decide if you want to have vertical or horizontal cards and off you go. Most material is available from Vibes & Scribes, Cork Art Supply, Mr Price and The Range.

Hope you enjoy the video.

Happy crafting xx

Decorating Easter Eggs

With the whole country in lockdown, time is more than available. Thank god for a fully stocked craft room. As Easter is nearing, I had a look through my stash and found a box of plastic eggs I bought last year from Vibes & Scribes (I think they were €5) and beautiful paper napkins with rose motives, perfect for decoupage (I can’t draw to save my life).

I had a few paint testers from Woodies in pretty pink and light green as well as some little red gem hearts. I painted a few but left others white – both worked fine. I think they look beautiful either way.

Enjoy the video and happy crafting.

Happy Easter my lovelies
