Celebrating National Stationery Week with Hema...


I'm celebrating National Stationery Week with a fashionable card created exclusively from stationery products.  It was very quick and easy to make with just some sticky notes and stickers from Hema.


Not familiar with Hema, well it's a Dutch brand with 5 stores in the UK selling home-wares, clothing and beauty products as well as a very trendy and affordable stationery range that I love!
Read more about the brand here on the HEMA website and you can browse the online store here,

How to make a centre step card...


Give your handmade cards the wow factor with my favourite card fold - the centre step card.  It's oh so easy to create using just one piece of card and stands up beautifully for display.
Finished card measures 14 x 14 cm and folds flat for posting.

How to make a Centre Step card


Cut card to measure 28 x 14 cm.  

Make a 2 cm long score line at 2, 4 and 16 cm then turnover and repeat along the opposite side.


Cut from the tip of the 16 cm to the 2 cm score line.  Repeat on the opposite side.  


Now score in half (at 14 cm) between the two cut lines.


Fold all score lines and there you have a centre step card blank.

DIY - sew your own style...


I'm rather proud of my first attempt at a DIY handbag, and it's all thanks to the wonder that is Tree and her You Tube channel Stitchless_TV


What's more all the materials I've used were recycled apart from the new zip!  Now, what shall I make next, a clutch bag, a kimono or maybe an A-line skirt?
