More Card Layouts :o)

Good Evening Everyone...

Well, it's been a busy week!
Workshops in the shop, then create & craft on Friday, back in the shop Saturday and at Lincoln for the Sincerely Yours Craft Show today!

Just how I like it! :o)

Anyhoo, it seems that everyone is liking the card layouts I designed for you the other day, I've had lots of messages via my Facebook Page asking for more, so I have just designed a couple more for you... 

They are open to your own interpretation of course, I'm just giving you them to give you ideas of how to plan a card out :o)

Obviously, the square could be any size square (8x8, 6x6 etc) and the C5 Landscape one could be an A4, 5x7 etc)

So, here are two more for you ... remember to distress those edges!

C5 Landscape Layout


Hope you find these useful

Happy Crafting!

Card Layouts....

Good Evening Everyone

OK, I've had lots of people over the last few months ask me if I can give ideas on card layouts, so, I have done you a couple to get you started...

I will do some more every couple of weeks and add them to the blog and to my Honeypot Crafts Facebook Page (I'll put them in a folder on there so you can refer back to them as and when you need them)

The first one I've done for you is a square card layout, this can be interpreted in whichever size square you want.. 8x8, 6x6, 5x5 etc and you can embellish how you wish, it's just to give you an idea of how to set a card out before adding your embellishments :o)

The second one I've done for you is a DL layout and again, this can also be interpreted into C5, 5x7 or an A4 card.

I hope you find these useful :o)

Happy Crafting!

Naughty sneaky peek....

Good Evening All

I am busrting with excitement about my latest project(s), but I can't tell you everything just yet...

All I can tell you is that I've thought and worked hard on it to get everything just right, for me (and I'm not easy to please) and, hopefully, for you all too!

Here's a little, teeny, tiny piece of one of the things I am working on...

I can't show you any more, yet!

You will (as I will too!) have to wait just a few more weeks :o)

Anyhoo, here you go :o)




Told you it was a teeny bit lol

Happy Crafting!

Revamped :o)

Good Evening Everyone!

Just a quick post to let you know I have revamped the side bar -------}}}

You can now see a header for each category and, hopefully, it will make it easier for you to see when my next Create & Craft Shows are, my Demo Days (and where they are) and some useful quick links to my Facebook Pages, Twitter Page and Online Shop.

I will (telling myself there!) remember to update it! So you will always know what is happening etc

Hope you like the colour of the headers, I've changed it 6 times in the last 24 hours! haha

It's worth clicking on my shops' facebook page and clicking the 'like' button to keep up to date with my Craftathons, Classes and new products that are coming in (If you haven't already) 

Anyhoo, enough rattling... let me know if it makes sense!

Monochrome Fancy Box and Note Cards

Good Morning Everyone

Just a quick post this morning as I've got a list of jobs as long as my leg to be getting on with!

I wanted to show you my latest Fancy Note Card Box... I absolutely love making these so thought, after the last 'batch' proved so popular, that I would make a monochrome version in Black & White..

Just so you know, the stamp I have used is the Indigo Blu Vintage Flourish, which you can get here .. It's one of my personal faves and sells out every time I get it in the shop!

The punches I've used to create the flowers are by Woodware and Tonic..
Tonic Ones are here..
Woodware ones are here ...

Anyhoo... Here are the photos!

Remember it's my Demo Day in the shop this Sunday, 12th May... details are here 

Happy Crafting!
