What is your best cardmaking story?

Maybe something funny has happened to you while you have been making your cards.

Has something happened to you as you have tried to sell your cards that you would like to share?

Perhaps it was a mistake you made, when producing your masterpiece, that you managed to turn round to your advantage.

Like the positioning of a big flower to hide the inked fingerprint in the middle of your work!!! (Yep! been there. Done that too )

Or some really good piece of fortune that came your way when you wanted sell your cards.

Something clever that you have discovered while browsing the craft shops.

Or something that you enthusiastically bought and then couldn't remember how to use once you got home. Been there too !! 

I was really pleased with myself when I discovered the kits to help me make my own brads that would then co-ordinate with all my projects.
And I ended up sticking them on everything ... until the novelty wore off.

Do you have a favourite Charity that you make cards for, that others may want to make them for too.
I take boxes of my cards to my favourite ones and I add them to a cellophane pack, complete with the envelope.

Or are you new to the craft and want to know something, well this is the place to ask those questions and get answers from all the visitors to the site. Everybody is more than willing to help

These pages are designed for the Newbie card maker, and there are some Easy projects that will show you how to produce some really great looking cards, easily and with full instructions.

And when you feel confident with these, then try some of the more complex folds.

I hope you will get a great deal of information from these pages and find lots of use for the projects that you try.

Take a look at some of the short video tutuorials which will give a better understanding of some of the techniques.

But no matter how new you are there will be something you know that others don't, and so I am inviting you to share all this knowledge with other visitors and help them in the same way.

You will also become a permanent part of this website and your stories and photographs will be featured here and in the blog.
