I have however been crafting away behind closed doors, and it’s quite an exciting time to be working on all sorts of projects! I’ve been getting into jubilee spirit this week, and have made a few cards, which could be used for invitations or even place cards – which might inspire you if you’re going to be throwing a party, barbecue or other event this June. I have also been playing around with my bead cards, which are still loads of fun to make!
That’s not al!l Coming up in the next week or so, I’ve also been stitching, and I have the big reveal of the “Big Gift Project” (as seen here and here) which was fun to work on, though I am glad to be able to play around with some other ideas now it’s finished! I’m still working on the ABC scrapbooking project, and finally have gotten around to taking the photos for my delayed “I” layout, and should update the post with my layout and put a whole album on the Facebook Page, within the next couple of days!
As I mentioned at the top of the post, I’ve been working on some cards, which could be used as invitations or place cards for a jubilee event (or any other royal event for that matter) The first I’m going to share, is my “invitation card” which features a simple cross-stitch crown (as featured in the latest issue of Cross-Stitcher magazine, on a Made in Britain birth sampler) stitched in blue on some coordinating red cardstock. I’ve gone back to my tiny cards (you may remember these from my “Just a Little…” series) of course these could be done using metallic threads on shiny card, with Union Flags as backing… Or whatever you’d like to use to work with the theme of your event! This design was simple and fun to stitch (could be great for beginners). It’d be easy to make a few of these in an evening too!
So I’m now off out for the morning, got to go to the post office today too! What fun!
Have a great day whatever you’re up to!
