March is finally here – hurrah! Although we’re not entirely sure what March thinks it’s doing… this month is supposed to herald the grand unveiling of spring – instead the UK’s kicking off the month under a blanket of snow, in sub-zero temperatures! Tut, tut, March.
But still, we can’t really complain about snow days… if you’re stuck indoors anyway, it’s the perfect excuse to get crafting! We’ve a variety of treats for you in this month’s pick of the cardmaking kits, with some pretty spring palettes (we’re ever-optimistic spring WILL show up eventually!) some sizzling summery designs in anticipation of the warmer months ahead… and a sneaky Christmas collection because, to be honest… this month’s snowfall got us feeling a little bit festive! So sit back (under a blanket!) and relax, whilst we take you through this month’s Top 10…

This fantastic project is a Mother’s Day must! Not only will our jewellery-expert, Sarah Millsop, guide you step-by-step through the process of creating this beautiful beaded bracelet, but she has a gorgeous way of presenting your finished gift too! This bracelet is made three times the length of a single strand, so it will wrap around your wrist several times. If you are short of time or beads, you can make a single strap. Just allow for the number of ‘wraps’ in your measurements, and keep checking your work as you bead; it’s easy to get carried away and bead a length that is too long!
Follow Sarah’s instructions below to create your own beautiful Mother’s Day bracelet, and get ready to root through your cardstock stash!
