Designing Samples for Hobbycraft Coventry

Hello and welcome back to my blog. This week I have been  keeping myself busy by making inspiration samples for my local Hobbycraft store here in Coventry.
I have worked with Simon and his team for nearly 2 years now making samples for new collections or to promote some of their products.
This week I was given the new seasonal papercraft ranges to create with from Trimcraft & Dovecraft. Here are a few of the samples I have made so far using their Hearts & Crosses and also the Mum in a Million ranges.
Paper Mache Magnet hearts decorated up with the Hearts & Crosses range.

7x5" card blank (£5 for 50 cards) and decorated with the Valentine's range and using a thick satin ribbon

I learnt a new technique for this one and made this 3d Diamond fold card which folds flat. 

A selection of the Mother's day cards I have made using the Mum in a Million ranges.  We've got an easel fold card, an a5 split folding card and a simple 7x5" card with washi tape and layered paper flowers. 

And finally for today I have taken a Paper Mache Heart box which I've covered with 180gsm card stock from the store, added pale aqua satin ribbon, coordinating washi tape from the collection Mum in a Million. Then I've made a topper for the lid to match. This would make a lovely gift box or keepsake for any mum.

All these samples will be on display and shown on the stores Twitter page over the coming weeks.

Thanks for looking
Hugs
