Card Making News- New and Free Resources ❤️
April 06, 2023

Hello Crafty Friends,

Happy Easter! Doesn't time go quickly!

Here’s a some resources to inspire your card making....

Getting Started

If you are a beginner and looking for starter videos there’s no one better than Therese Calvird from Lost in Paper.  Her “Back to Basics” series although old is one of the best on You Tube. also has free videos for anyone new to stamping and how to make a handmade card from start to finish.

Clean and Simple Cards

I find Clean and Simple (CAS) cards very difficult.  It doesn't matter how hard I try I always seem to add too much detail.

I watched "10 Tips for CAS Cards" to pick up some hints from the Queen of Clean, Christine Stokes and I would definately recommend it as a starting point.  

Copy and paste the list of the tips in the video description and keep it by you when creating.


SVG’s  or Scalable Vector Graphics are images that can be sized to any size.  These digital files are used on Cricut, Silhouette and ScanNCut machines.

They are extremely popular and as I learn more about their uses I will write a page on how they can be used in card making.

Creative Fabrica (CF) has launched a new category – 3D SVG Crafts packed with quality designs. 

A number of designs are being offered free if you activate a free trial. 

If you are new to CF have a look at my page on how to use their resources.

CraftStash have also started offering SVG’s and now have a new section devoted entirely to Digital Card Making.


Check out my new products in Crafters Circle for free download.

To save you time I've listed my picks of the freebies currently on offer from CF...





And finally, my gift to you....Ten Vintage Background Papers.

If you enjoyed this newsletter, I'd be very grateful if you'd help it spread by emailing it to a friend, or sharing on Facebook and other social media.

Thank you!

OK, time for tea and hopefully a quiet evening.

Have a wonderful Easter break. 

Happy Creating!
