Are you like us and LOVE to collect fabric and felt and look at it all...lots?
Comment below and leave a link to your project. If this blog post has inspired you to get crafting with fabric then let us know.
Aside from logging these beautiful memories, the feeling of buying pretty ribbon, buttons, papers and everything else to create a page for the future is deeply exciting.
It’s your work so go crazy, have fun and feel like a kid in a sweet shop again. Why should the kids have all the fun?"
|Emma Collins. Media & PR Officer at docrafts|
Well we have been a little naughty by not blogging since last year! BUT (see that I have put a big BUT) we have been super duper busy with the UK's best-selling craft magazine, docrafts.com loading even more information and projects to inspire you even more (just when you think we can't inspire you anymore!) and the products? Oh the products. So far this year we have had amazing comments about our product launches. Thank you so much.
We have also been busy chatting to crafters online in Craft Talk, on Facebook, on Twitter. Wow! We have been busy haven't we?
Before I move on, let me wish you a Happy New Year! How is your year going so far? How many cards have you made in 2014? Discovered any new techniques? Discovered any new products? Found a new craft? I would love to know so please leave me a comment below.
So, have you heard about #docraftsmonday? As so many of you chat regularly to us on Social Media Platforms we thought that we should have some fun on a dreaded Monday.
