Thank for following happy crafting


So today was a day of scrapbooking, and I think I was in the zone as I am completely happy with the results, as I have a lot of pre made collectibles I try and add something that I done from scratch on every page to make my own personal touch and not to forget the effort that goes into laying everything out sometimes it can take me an hr before I am completely happy with one.

So here goes...

So this was the first one I did the personal touch was the red love heart I filled with a stencil and embossing powder, I have learned that I love using stencils over the last couple of days.

This one was a bit tricky but seems to be a popular one with great reviews I didn't know what my personal touch would be, so it was stencils considering my love for them just a different way other than emboss them I used a color pen to stencil in the wiggly lines in the middle and the photo corner at the top. Was done by me.

The third one today was the ribbon I find it hard tying ribbons so I found room to add a personal touch and an achievement on this beauty it was the last of the photos I got printed and laminated over the weekend. I think I love scrapbooking as much as I love card making now.

How was your day? did you craft? feel free to share below.
Happy crafting <3 Meegs

Getting the hang of things

So over the weekend I have visited family what's new is that I now take craft stuff with me, and that I did and managed to create, learn and layer and created 3 new cards. in our facebook group we share some proud goodies and auction them off with all proceeds supporting beyondblue, feel free to join our facebook anytime and put a card or two up to help raise funds supporting anxiety and depression awareness.

The three are the latest on offer, I learned to layer to place things - and to cut straighter with these gems making it my personal touch.

Welcome to the Happy Hour craft Challenge

Welcome to our blog spot blog, as I grow further into craft I am noticing many people I meet have blogger right here in the craft world, so I decided to add to our social media platforms with the Happy Hour challenge the opportunity to participate via blogger as well.

Happy Hour craft challenge is about giving yourself time to step away from the negativity you may have in your daily lives and focus on a personal achievement behind close doors in your own surroundings without being judged.

It's totally up to you what you want to share with us, but those cards you make, those scrapbooking pages you create will always give you a proud moment and a sense of achievement rather than responding to negative situations.

The challenge is also open to anyone that loves craft, any levels and any reasons, it will help inspire us all. on the first of each month I post via our blogs 14 different craft challenge where you can complete one a day or even the same one for 14 days or even just one or 3 which ever it maybe it your choice.

This challenge is different many online craft challenges have one theme for that month here we have plenty of choice, we also have award categories where winners receive a certificate and their entry into our end of month ebook.

So please feel free to join in follow and help us create a positive conversation through craft.
To enter for April all you need to do is post under our social media platforms eg underneath this blog post or our official April post we will share here to ensure we are notified and follow the rules via the link below.
