Welcome!


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 ...


Thank you for visiting

Margate ...

I am very lucky in that I live in a lovely place called Margate in the UK.  It is a seaside town, built around the tourist season and all things buckets and spades!  I live a twenty minute walk from the main town and tourist beach, and a ten minute walk to the cliff top and sandy beaches that are a little further away from the commercial beach.

Every day me and my husband find some time together to go for a walk down to the cliff tops, and walk along the beaches, recently in the sunny weather, and over Christmas in the snow.  I am very lucky in that it gives us so much thinking time.



We live close to places like Broadstairs and Whitstable, so quite often we are able to get away for an afternoon, and feel like we are on our holidays!  These little trips out really help with my card making.  Sometimes when I am sat in the workshop, starring at blank paper not quite knowing what to do with it, as soon as I leave the house and arrive by the sea I know exactly what I am going to do with it when I get home!

Happy days indeed!

Thanks for stopping by. See you soon.

  1. Oooh you lucky thing! I don't often get to see the sea being in the middle of the country! It looks so pretty and I can just picture myself sitting on that beach collecting my thoughts :)
