Cardmaking and Papercraft - - Crafter’s Q&a -

I sit in my gar­den with a cup of tea and browse Pin­ter­est for ideas. Becky Cornes ŅIf I make a shaped card I al­ways make a spare and store it in a folder with the de­tails on how to make it. When I am stuck I look in the box and choose one of these tem­plates. Then, I make a copy of the card fold and keep the orig­i­nal. May Jones ŅI pho­to­graph ev­ery­thing I make so when I hit a block I look back through them. It re­ally helps! Keri Jones ŅI sit down with my daugh­ter and we doodle to­gether, have a bit of a laugh and then I’m ready to get craft­ing again! Linda Winck­les ŅI get some of my die-cuts out and place them onto pat­terned pa­per and have a play around. If this doesn’t give me any ideas, I look on Pin­ter­est, where I find plenty of in­spi­ra­tion. Linda Ford

I do house­work – I find that usu­ally helps! Elaine Hon­nor
