My love of cardmaking started with a very simple card kit that was given to me as a gift. I'd never tried or shown an interest in cardmaking before so when i received it i was a bit like 'well ok it looks pretty but i'll probably never use this'....one rainy day and two bored young children out came the kit!
I loved how quick and easy it was to create beautiful cards, with no previous experience or art skills needed, so easy my then two young boys could join in too.
Even though now i am more experienced in cardmaking and have enough Stampin Up products i could rival the Stampin Up headquarters, when i saw the gorgeous 'Perennial Birthday Project Kit' it took me right back to where i started and the box looked so pretty i decided to order it for myself.
The box is super handy for storing your made cards in so you are always ready with a card when needed. It even has tab dividers to separate the months and a place where you can write down the birthdays during that month so you don't forget anyone.
With simple step by step instructions and all the bits and pieces you need aside from an ink pad or two and some adhesive you're ready to go.
The samples use the matching 'Perennial Birthday' stamp set but if you didn't want or don't have that stamp set you can easily swap it to a sentiment or greeting you do have. The same with the ink colours, if you haven't got the ink colour suggested pick one you do. That's the beauty of Stampin Up products, with so many things mixing and matching you can always come up with something that looks amazing using items you already have.
Below i have made one of the designs in this kit, it took no time at all and the cards look pretty and professional.
Just a word of caution, if you are thinking of purchasing this kit don't leave it too long as it is only available until the end of May. Perhaps it could be a lovely gift to inspire a relative or friend to try cardmaking.

I am the first to admit i have an issue hoarding crafting products, especially papers! When they come packaged and look so pretty it's hard to chop them up to use. I always end up with retired papers left over each time a new catalogue is released and they end up sitting in my paper store unused. So with this in mind i decided to start using some of them up and made a start on some Christmas cards. Santa's workshop was such a fun set of papers, especially if making cards for younger members of the family. I used a larger piece of dsp for the background but then also cut another strip with elves on to use as the main focus of the card. Mounted onto real red card and then some glimmer paper to cut the word 'Christmas' from adds a little bit of festive bling and sparkle. At least if i use up my old stash i have the perfect excuse to buy more of the new products :) If you would like to buy any current products please pop over to my online shop HERE
