Herbal Plants, Flowers and Butterflies

I'm lucky enough to work with THE most fabulous craft products and I'm lucky enough to see them before they launch too!
I have been keen to start highlighting some of my favourite things *note that I sang that line*  and what better way to start than with a floral range that touches on vintage and floral reminding me of my daughters playing in the garden on a warm summers day.
I love this Papermania Botanicals range that is out next month. A world of floral illustrations and masterpieces. Herbal plants, flowers, butterflies and insects are layered together to create this beautiful, vintage infused collection. Using a muted colour palette of pinks, yellows and greens, Botanicals is perfect for card making, scrapbooking and altered art alike.

Perfect for draw inserts, decorating flower pots and creating a bunting for the garden patio area - oh and making cards and scrapbooking the pics of my children playing in the garden.

The docrafts designers know just how hard it can be when you finally get the chance to get crafting (Yippeeee) and you have to create something lovely for a man. Stumbling block.

Not an easy challenge is it?

How many male themed cards do you make?

Father's Day this year is on Sunday 15th June but to give you some inspiration here are some cards to make life a little easier. You don't need to copy the design exactly. Use these ideas as inspiration and adapt for your own special handmade gift. Birthday, invitation or a card to simply say 'I Love You'.

The Birthday Bash

Have you thought about using your papercraft products for a birthday bash?

Stephanie Bryan over at Stephanie Makes did just that! 

Her little girl turned 5 recently and she used her craft talent to personalise the birthday setting for her daughter. Take a look for some great ideas!

Using her craft goodies, she created craft goody bags rather than party bags for all the girls that came to the party. She also created a knotted fabric garland from the Papermania Capsule Pastel range of fabrics and put Papermania blooms to good use.
