Easy on the Easel Cards

For my third catch-up post, I thought I would own up to a couple of new addictions. The first one is easel cards. They're so simple, and look so cool, I have to restrain myself from turning every card I make into an easel card! Here are a couple of my favourites, both made for friends' children. John likes trains and flowers, Meagan celebrated her birthday with a teddy bears' picnic.

The second addiction is beads, and the Stitches show at the NEC gave the perfect opportunity to indulge myself, as you can see from the picture! I went to the show with a non-crafting friend who was so impressed with all the displays that she came home with loads of shopping to take up cardmaking herself. Great news for me, as she lives only 10 minutes away - it'll be lovely having someone nearby to craft with!

March was also quite an exciting month, as Do Crafts invited me to take a screen test to be a guest on the Create & Craft shopping channel. Here's the card I made - ooh look, it's an easel card! :-) More on telly demos in my next post!

  1. Hi Amanda, love all of these cards but my favourite by a whisker is the Popcorn card! He is such a cute, gorgeous bear!
    I must admit, lately I tend to do easel cards too! Think they are different, but the only problem I have found, is that the recipient doesn't know how to display them until shown!
    Take care
