Have you heard of Creative Collective? It's a group of crafty bloggers who have joined together to host monthly craft challenges, fund raising events, swaps and more.
You may recall a few months ago I joined in on their Spring craft project? Well, this month I signed up for the handmade Christmas card swap. I decided to try my hand at some slightly more traditional paper crafts (as opposed to my usual make-it-up-as-you-go-along paper embroidery adventures). So it was out with the scissors, paper punches and glue, and this is what I came up with. I was pretty darn pleased with the results, I do hope my swap partners like them too...
And today I got the first cards from my swap partners in the post and they are gorgeous - each one is so unique and beautifully made, it's quite inspiring to see the different ideas and interpretations. I can't wait to get the next three! (I'll be posting about them once I have all five.)
Oh, and you could (and should!) get more information about Creative Collective here.
