Is your New Year's Resolution to take up a hobby?

If it isn't, it should be! Hobbies are a great way of relaxing and taking your mind away from the stresses and strains of daily life, by allowing you to be creative. Some people focus on one hobby, and some people (like me!) have several. Papercrafting is my main love, both scrapbooking and cardmaking, but I also enjoy yarncraft aswell, both knitting and crochet. I'm also a keen photographer and I've even had a go at art journalling - the possibilities are endless! 

If you're not sure how to start then a kit can be a great introduction to a new hobby. The card above, for example, was made using the 'Oh Happy Day' Card Kit from Stampin' Up! 
Kits give you everything you need to make a project, and often come with instructions to help you get started. So what are you waiting for? Jump in and go for it, you won't regret it!

If you're interested in cardmaking or scrapbooking but you're not sure where to start then get in touch by email scrappingmojodesigns@gmail.com, or leave a comment and I'll do my best to help :)

Jems Blog Hop - Lots of Happy Kit

Hello! Welcome to my stop on the Jems Blog Hop! This month we're showcasing some of the lovely new products that are on offer in the Stampin' Up! Spring Summer Catalogue 2018 - and there are so many lovely new products! Regular visitors will know how much I love a good kit, so it probably won't surprise you to know that I've chosen to showcase the Lots of Happy Card Kit :) 

I needed to make a very special birthday card for my very special Mum, so I started with the kit and then added a few extra bits to make it even better! I also used a few bits from the kit to decorate a mini pizza box to hold her gift. 

I used one of the Sale-a-bration offerings to create the background for the pizza box - it's one of the Sweet Soiree Memories and More cards cut down to fit the box. You can see what else is available during Sale-a-bration here.

This is normally where I would send you off to the next blog, but I'm afraid you're at the end! If you'd like to go back to the beginning, you'll find the lovely Julie here.

Thank You Card & Sale-A-Bration is Here!

Sale-A-Bration is my favourite time of year with Stampin' Up! This is my third so far, and it never fails to disappoint - who doesn't love free stuff?! 

For every £45 you spend in the Annual catalogue or brand new Spring/Summer catalogue (before shipping) you can choose a Sale-A-Bration freebie, fab right? Have a look at the Sale-A-Bration Catalogue to see what's on offer this year!

I was immediately drawn to the Tutti Frutti cards and envelopes - a set of 16 pre-printed card blanks and co-ordinating envelopes in Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, Lemon Lime Twist and Pool Party. I've used one of the Pool Party card blanks to create this Thank You card, and I'm really pleased with it :)

Scrapping Mojo Cards is on Etsy!

I've been thinking about this for a while, and decided that it was finally time to take the plunge! My stack of finished cards is threatening to take over my craft room, so I'm slowly adding them to my Etsy store in the hope that other people will love them as much as I've loved making them.

I'd love it if you could take a look at my little shop and let me know what you think!

Getting Creative With Christmas Gift Wrapping

I set myself something of a task this year when I decided that everyone's presents were going to look fabulous. All of my gift wrapping has been handmade - gift boxes, gift bags, envelopes, the lot! It feels like it's taken me forever, but I'm pleased to say I'm finally done, and with a day to spare! I thought I'd show you some of my favourites.

I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas!

'Happy Birthday' Card

Whenever I'm in a crafting rut, I find that using a kit as a starting point is a great way to kick start creativity, as it takes some of the pressure off when you know that all the contents have been designed to go together! I used one of Stampin' Up's fantastic project kits, and pulled in one or two other bits from my stash to create this birthday card. 

To make the card I used the Happy Birthday Gorgeous Stamp SetSoft Sayings Card Kit, Hearts and Stars Elements and a Basic Gray Archival Ink Pad.

The Soft Sayings Card Kit would make a fabulous Christmas present for anyone wanting to get started in papercrafting. It contains everything you need to make 20 gorgeous cards (or if you want to get more creative you can mix and match like I did), all you need to add is adhesive. 

Don't forget to use this month's online order code - see the online ordering page for more details.
