Also thought well this blog is about what I love, at the moment I am sharing my love of crafts between Card making and Felt and I will be posting both to this one blog. Maybe I need a rename? Hmmm something to ponder. I do run Facebook pages, Stamping Caz Designs so I could probably encompass all crafts under that name. Besides, apart from Jo (Hi jo Bluefairy) I have such little interaction I am not actually sure anyone is reading this?! :)
For those that subscribe, I will entitle my blog posts accordingly. So if its Waffle, Needle Felt, Classes, or Card Making (or other if I think at a later date) I will label the post title so you can choose if you want to read or delete.
Talking Classes I am waiting for Crafts U Love to publish their list, I have given them many ideas so just waiting to see.
Also for local friends I am really really seriously thinking of local classes. Papercraft and Needle Felting. So watch this space.
Enough waffle for now, I am just about to post a Needle Felting Post to show of my first make of 2018.

I am here with a birthday card that I needed to make and I could not wait to play with the Karen Burniston Tag Book Pop up die set and the Cat & Dog set (although I only made the cat in this instance). Seems to be too long between cardmaking sessions and the dark and cold sometimes keep me out of the shed, but once I am in there I can hope to get the creative juices going.
I do have to mention the Tag Book is currently out of stock at Crafts U Love but it will be back, so sign up for product notifications on this item so you don't miss out on this item again as it flew out the first time.

Today its Paper Pro's Challenge again and this months challenge is Winter Birthday card Karen Aicken Painted MtnCards.
I left it a bit late (as usual) and had a bit of a Mojo block, so I went real simple, and sometimes simple is good.

This months theme was Holiday Cards and I decided it was about time I played with the Karen Burniston House & Fence Pop up. I teamed it up with a few other elements from the Holiday Charms. (I will link below)

Yesterday I made my first sleepy squirrel. I followed a video tutorial by serafina fibre art. Mid way through project I hit the "oh no it's rubbish" stage which most of my felties reach. But I carried on and pleased to say I was happy at the end.
I love this craft. Just need more time! It's very frustrating ATM.
Today I'm here with last weeks Create and Take. I used the Elizabeth Craft Designs Bugs and Butterflies clear stamp set and the Marianne Designs Heart Embossing Folder.

I have been having an amazing time playing, learning and generally collecting and loving the fluff!
Below I will show off some of my recent makes and I warn you there might be quiet a few! This is not replacing my Paper Crafting, and I do hope I don't loose too many likers, but hey, I might gain a few too.
Anyone want to get into Needle Felting I would Highly recommend a company called The Makerss at www.themakerss.co.uk Their range of Wool and accessories are fabulous, they are friendly and fast. I only share this information as when you start a new hobby it can be hard to know where to start, and yes you make the wrong choices along the way, but I truely think with The Makerss you will miss this out and just get the best.
Type in CAZ10 for a super duper 10% off, this is my own "Friends of Caz" code, how lucky am I? :)
Its been a long time! I apologise for that, I have been busy and making the card for work, I have been needle felting and making Pop up cards for my classes coming up at Crafts U Love but just not posted on here.
Whilst my time with the Karen Burniston Design team has ended, I am still part of the Paper Pros team, which is a group of crafters who met on the Karen Burniston DT, we love her designs, and whilst using her dies as a starter point, we are of course allowed to add in anything we want as its a "Just for Fun" challenge.
That said, I did in fact only use Karen's new collection for this card. The theme was HALLOWEEN and I was dying to play with the new designs.

Today I am back with another card from demo. The boys have stolen the mouse off the PC so trying to post this post from my phone. So I'll keep it short and cross my fingers it actually works.
On the front I made use of the flags that come with the twist panel set and added wording from the words set, keeping the front simple as a leaf into the main display on the inside.
Inside I used the adorable animals and also so of the birthday charms and the cupcake too.
Apologies its short and not linking directly, I'll have to sort a mouse out soon.
