It’s National Stationery Week! Day one’s theme is #MakeANoteMonday so let’s jump right into that! It’s actually interesting to see how everyone is going to interpret this theme. There are plenty of different ways to interpret this. As most of us are restricted to our homes, I thought of some ways for you to get involved from the comfort of your own home! Whilst this theme might just for Monday, I think these ideas are definitely something you can carry on throughout the weeks. They are particularly effective during this period where you might need something to do or a way to cheer up your friends or family.
These ideas are a great way to promote self-care too, using stationery. You can get as creative as you want. Fancy adding more colours or drawing? Sure! Go ahead! You can also just keep them simple if you prefer, it’s completely up to you. Some of these ideas will also work to help bring joy to other people, which is always a bonus!
Christmas is not too far away now! At this point, if you have not already purchased or made cards for people, it can sometimes get a bit hectic trying to find some. Luckily, if you have a printer at home then you pretty much already have everything you need at home! I found a few printable christmas cards that I wanted to share with you today, in case you needed to whip up a last minute card.
I am really excited about today’s post. It combines two things I adore: cardmaking and Harry Potter. I have used a few products from some of my favourite companies too, which just makes the whole thing even more fun. These cards are relatively easy to make. However, some of these products might be hard to source so you may have to get a little creative if you wanted to create your own. With the same products, I made a small variety of different cards. I really wanted to try and find a few different ways to do this, so the process was not repetitive. So, without further ado, for the fifteen day of Blogmas, let me present to you my Harry Potter Christmas Cards!
I know, I know, it’s not December yet. But if you make your cards by hand, you need to start before then. It takes me months to create enough Christmas cards in time to send by the last posting dates. Not anymore though – not with the Christmas Craft Bundle from Design Bundles. They kindly sent me the The Christmas Craft Bundle to play with and I am already in love.
Ideally, you require a papercutting machine of some sort but quite a few of their designs can be used without one, in all honesty. I used the Silhouette Cameo to create the papercuts in this blog post.
Yesterday I mentioned how I’ve been bitten by the calligraphy bug and pointed out a few of my favourite gifts for people. If you didn’t read it, you can check it out here. I didn’t mention one product, however, that I’ve really started to enjoy using and I wanted to talk a little about that today. It’s the Manuscript Italic & Poster Set. I challenged myself to try and make some handmade cards featuring Manuscript calligraphy products and this one jumped out at me. It’s so perfect – and I’m really excited about today’s post.
