For those of you wonderful Crafties who took the time and dedication to create us handmade cards for our ‘Make us a #CCBirthday Card Competition‘, we are truly grateful and honoured. We were absolutely blown away by the amount of fantastic entries. We hope you caught our Presenters taking fun selfies with them on set and around our HQ on their Presenter Facebook Pages, and we hope you saw Loen and Dean diving into the shortlist of cards on our Facebook page. Here are some images shot with love by our in-house Photography team – we thought our winners deserved a little something special! Congratulations to our winners and a huge THANK YOU from the C&C family to everyone who took the time to enter.
“Bunting adds the perfect handmade touch to a birthday party, and with this tutorial, you can make your very own colourful bunting that will last forever!” – Charlotte Newland
“It is always exciting to receive a brief for a special celebration, and Create and Craft’s Birthday was no exception. I was asked if I would be willing and available to create a special cake for the Create and Craft birthday week. It has been a busy week as we have had a four day Bank Holiday Easter Weekend, combined with my live appearance on Saturday Kitchen and the National Tea Day festival on 21st April to coincide with Her Majesty The Queen’s Birthday, where I hosted live demonstrations. But how could I refuse?” – Mich Turner
“My son Jack is 18 later this year and I thought I’d get ahead of the game with some personalised ‘Birthday Bunting’! Create and Craft’s birthday celebrations inspired me to break open the THREADS Printable Fabric Paper and surf my computer files for some favourite childhood pictures. This is SO simple to do (with the aid of a quickie glue pen), yet really eye-catching. The simplicity of it means that personalised birthday bunting can be made in abundance (or should that be abuntance? Ha!). AND it’s a really lovely handmade project that will give a lot of pleasure, but won’t cost the Earth!” – Wendy Turner Webster
“This is such a fun and simple project to create. It’s great for dress up and embellishing costumes, plus it’s super on-trend with a plush choker finish!” – Sarah Millsop
