Day 6 - Crafts and Me






We are a small family Craft business that came about when as a card making family, my daughters and young granddaughters and I that is! Not our men who do not make cards, although my husband has had a go....Could never find the stamps and crafts that we had seen advertised!
So, in the end we decided to start up Crafts and Me, so that we could get the products we wanted not only for us, but to offer to other crafters like you.
We love the different ranges of stamps and crafts that we get from all over the world and we hope you will love them too....
Our aim is to give you the best possible customer service that we can, and to treat our customers just as we would want to be treated ourselves.
So, enjoy looking at our shop and if you cannot find a product you would like, or if you have any suggestions about our shop we would love to hear from you, just email us at info@craftsandme.co.uk as we are always looking for ways to improve our site.


Today we are challenged to use punches!



For my project today I went with a candle card box.
This was a customer request for a friend who was going for breast cancer surgery.

The image is from Crafts and me and the gorgeous sheer organza ribbon is from HERE.
I used papers from First Edition. I punched out the little butterflies using an unnamed punch.
Everything is matted on gold mirri card.

I would like to enter this into
