A forgotten card..

I don't know about you but I don't always remember when I have made cards that have been sent off to their intended recipient.  I don't make cards that much these days so I tend to always take a picture just to remind myself that I do craft!

Well a few days ago I was sorting out pictures on my camera and I found this card.  I don't remember making it.  I can't remember who it was for.

I thought I would share it with you on my blog to show you, and remind me, that I do craft and I should do it more often!

The digital stamp is my Georgie-Where is it? coloured with Promarkers. The papers are from the Wishes and Kisses CD (Moving Home collection)  The sentiment says 'Had a good birthday? You better had!'

I haven't looked at those backing papers for ages, I'd forgotten how much I liked the flower one. I don't think I have mentioned here that all the Funky Hand craft CDs are now permanently reduced in price.  All the Papercraft Factory CDs are £9.99 or less each, reduced from £15.99 and the Original CDs are £3.99 or less each down from £7.99.  If you have gaps in your collections grab them now.  Once the stocks have gone..they wont be available again.  OK, I'm off to see if I have any other pictures of cards I don't remember!

Until next time.

Making baby cards? Read on!

Hello everyone,

I'm all excited as I've launched some new digital stamps and backing papers on my website Funky Hand and I wanted to let you all take a look.

Who doesn't need baby papers and images? No one I know anyway, so I thought I'd start my 2014 releases in pink and blue.. First up Button Babies Paper Collection.

These backing papers have gone down a storm with my Design Team and they have been making the most AMAZING cards with them.  Go over to the gallery on the Button Babies Paper Collection product page and have a good look.  There is tonnes of inspiration for what to do using just the papers.

If you like to have an image to top your cards then don't worry because I have drawn two for you..

These pair are little sweeties and very simple to colour or paper piece.  Once again my Design Team members have outdone themselves creating the most wonderful cards and other creations (Don't miss the amazing boxes that Lou has made!) which you can see in the galleries on the Button Baby Boy and    Button Baby Girl product pages.  Click on any of the images and be taken straight to the pages.

You're in for a treat though, as I've got another two stamps for you to savour.  I don't know about you, if I want to say I love you to someone I don't always want to do it in a cute or slushy way.  Now you don't have to!  Introducing 'Takeaway Stamps'

These two takeaway coffees are perfect for saying I love you in a fun quirky way.  They lend themselves perfectly to paper piecing and the DT have found some great ways to use them.  Once again take a look at the galleries on the product pages I Like Coffee and Coffee Love to get some inspiration. These are just the first of  these takeaway digital stamps..look out for more in the near future.

OK, with all this excitement going on I think I need a cup of coffee!  I am working on my craft creation using the paper roses that I made a few days away I promise and I'll be back to share it here very soon.
In the meantime why don't you get over to grab the new downloads and get crafting!

Making paper roses

Hi everyone,

How are you all?  Things are very hectic here but I shouldn't complain about being busy I suppose!  It's my turn to post over on the Get Funky and Craft blog and this month I have explained how to make paper roses.

Here are the ones I made..

I'm not going to tell you how to make them here, go over to the Get Funky and Craft blog and read my step by step tutorial.

I'm about to go off to my craft desk and use them in a new project.  I'll be back in a couple of days to show you what I made.  I'm undecided, could be a tag, could be a note pad cover.  I'll have to see what works the best when I get there.  Hopefully my crafty mojo hasn't left while I have been busy.

Until next time.

Happy Valentines Day.

Hi everyone, I hope you are having a nice Valentines Day.  I did have new Love themed digital stamps to release earlier in the week..bit late now!

Unfortunately my dog Travis has been ill and this week we have discovered that he has bad elbows and he needs to have operations on them.  A pretty sad house here.  Poor old Travis doesn't understand why his legs hurt and he can only walk for a short while without limping.  He is a VERY energetic dog, running at 100 mph is the only speed he does..except for now. Due to all the vet visits etc we haven't had an opportunity to put the digis up on the website.  They will be included in future releases though, you always need a bit of love on your cards don't you!  Here are a few cards made by my wonderful Design Team using them.

 This is Georgie- Love Banner

A new collection of Coffee takeaways..This one is, I Love You More Than Coffee..

and this one is I Like Coffee..

They will be available very soon so, keep your eyes on your email if you have purchased something before from the Funky Hand website, here on this Blog, on the DT Blog Get Funky & Craft and on the Facebook page.

To finish off this blog post I have to show you a picture of Travis, it was taken a while ago but his face matches the one he has had on all week!

I'll be keeping everyone, who is interested, updated about what's happening with him here. If you are not interested just jump those bits. There will still be some crafting I promise. Hehe!

Speak again very soon
