February Monthly Summary
Earlier this month Elle showed you how to create these delicious Fruit Pavlovas. Perfect for Mother’s Day, this desert is elegant and simple enough to create for a big dinner party (or for a treat!) Using seasonal fruit, these Pavlovas taste just as delicious as they look!
We are huge fans of upcycling projects here – especially when they look as fab as these planters when complete! With the fun new First Edition Deco Mache papers, we transformed some used pop bottles into lovely planters to create our own mini garden! Why not create your own and fill them with your choice of greenery?
Our Three Ways With feature looks at creative ways to craft – and this month we explored weaving! Maxine took you through three fun ways to incorporate this method in your crafting to create some fun makes that will look great in your home. What’s your favourite way to use weaving within your crafts?
Of course throughout February we celebrated everything Valentine’s Day! We showed you how to create this wonderful Floating Heart Card using the Hearts and Crosses collection from Dovecraft. Not just for Valentine’s Day, you can adapt this design to suit any occasion.
We also had a great video tutorial for you this month, showing you how to create a Hidden Surprise Card. Using the adorable Hey Baby papers from First Edition, the surprise element to this card adds and extra special touch to this DIY! What occasion would you use this card for?
With Mother’s Day just around the corner, we showed you how to create this super fun rosette card using the wonderful First Edition Kale Washi Tapes. The rosette is detachable for you to give to your #1 Mum!
Lots of you across our social media loved seeing Martina’s DIY handbag gift bag using the beautiful Nature’s Grace collection. This is the perfect craft to make your gift-giving extra special!
Create this fun slider card to amaze your friends and family – simply pull the slider to watch the colours magically appear! This card can be used for any occasion and you can add your favourite sentiment to the inside panel of the card to be revealed as the slider is pulled.
Kathy showed you how to create this stunning Iris Fold design using the V&A Papercraft collection. Using our free template, you can make your own for the perfect piece of home décor.
