Hello and welcome to All things card and paper at Evelyn Mae. A place where I get to wax lyrical about all things to do with card making. From stitching to glitter, to history to whims of fashion ...

The start of all things ....

So, to the business of blogging .....  I was unsure at first as to whether to blog or not, but after getting hooked on the blogs of Dawn Mcvey and Melissa Samuels, I was well and truly persuaded!!  So, being a newbie, please forgive the basic layout, and the lack of information ... I will get to grips with it!..... more than likely with the help of my husband, who is, without a doubt, much more competent at computers than me!

I am hoping that this blog allows me to share with you my recent creations and in turn, keep me on top of creative projects.  To make my card making business viable- the cards need to be affordable, and that doesn't always allow for creativity in design, so this blog will be a way of keeping me thinking creatively, and challenging me to try new products and ideas.  There are simply hundreds of fantastic blogs on crafting, so I have a lot to keep me inspired, and a very high bench mark to aim for!!

So for now I will leave you with some cards from the 'American Christmas' design set that I have been working on for my website - I have used the free papers from 'Simply cards and papercraft', and I think they have turned out quite cute!

Please get in touch with any comments you have, I'd really like to hear from you :o)

Enjoy, thanks for visiting
