Top 10 Cardmaking Kits October 2017

Top 10 Cardmaking Kits October 2017

Three months ago, I wrote an article describing our Top 10 Cardmaking Kits of July. As expected, this went down a storm with cardmakers — so I think it’s time for another. October is going to be an exciting month, but I know that sometimes it can be difficult to know what cardmaking kits we sell because there are just so many. You’re likely to miss some TV shows and may not fancy trawling through the website for kits, so I’ve made it easy for you.

I’ve waded through hundreds of cardmaking kits on the website and picked out what are, in my opinion, the top 10 cardmaking kits of October so far. I hope you enjoy as much as I have!

10. Julie Loves Rainbows Collection

Find rainbows on a cloudy day; Julie Hickey’s effervescent cardmaking collection is the perfect pick-me-up as summer transitions to autumn. The project kit contains enough elements to make at least 48 cards, including papers, toppers, mats, Candi, and printed designs.

9. Stamp It with Craftwork Cards Collection II

Craftwork Cards has taken the watercolour trend and really ran with it in this collection. But it isn’t only the style that’s remarkable here; this kit is huge. Craft with Distress It! Matts, Reveal It! Toppers, die-cut flowers and leaves, a Stamp It! Stencil, AND polymer stamps. Wow.

8. Hunkydory Paws for Thought Ultimate Bundle

If there are any crazy cat ladies (or men) out there, THIS is the cardmaking bundle for you. Hunkydory has gone kitty crazy, combining adorable images of cats and kittens with vintage-style patterns across their toppers, cardstock, notelets, decoupage, stamps, and much more.

7. Kanban Kids and Kuties & Cute Little Friends Wobblers Collection

What I love about this cardmaking collection is how unique it is. The kit provides the elements needed to make ‘wobbler’ cards, using rocker card blanks as a base. You’ll also receive adorable character toppers and sweet sentiments to pull it all together. It’s too cute.

6. Julie Loves Paisley and Petals Complete Collection

Here’s another project kit from Julie Hickey, which, again, will make at least 48 cards. The colour scheme here is a little tamer than the last, offering complementary navy, yellow, blue, and pastel pink accents across papers, tags, die-cuts, Candi, overlays, and frames. So dreamy!

5. Dovecraft Back to Basics Baby Steps Collection

Back to Basics stands out to me because it’s specifically designed for infants. (Cards for them — not for them to make cards!) Instead of following stereotypical blue/pink themes, this collection features yellows and greys across papers, cards, frames, bows, toppers, and pearls.

4. Craftwork Cards Birds & Blooms Mega Variety Collection

I’d say that flowers are universally adored. There’s something about them that just picks you up when you’re feeling down, or makes your day that bit better. This lovely collection includes hand-drawn illustrations and sentiments throughout a huge variety of papers and toppers.

3. Create & Craft Quintessential Vintage Card Kit

Our vintage cardmaking kit is the epitome of luxury, offering sumptuous magenta, gold, grey and yellow colourways with an effortlessly vintage feel. The patterned papers and greeting cards have UV, oil and foiled finishes, coming with pretty die-cuts and embellishments.

2. Hunkydory Twilight Forest Ultimate Bundle

Striking artwork and a magical theme — it must be Hunkydory. This cardmaking bundle is as impressive as it gets, offering dusky pinks and purples, deep blues, and alluring greens. Find playful pixies and woodland creatures across toppers, cardstock, inserts, and papers.

1. Dovecraft Premium Time to Sparkle Card Making Kit

Enriched with contemporary and enchanting festive imagery, patterns and colours, Dovecraft’s luxurious papercraft collection will add a touch of glitz and glam to your seasonal crafts. The kit contains two paper pads, stamps, stickers, sequins, toppers, and glitter dots.

  • Whatever time of year it is I can be found, lost in my own crafty bubble, making something for that fits with any occasion. Handmade cards can be sent for happy or sad events, or to just say ‘Hello!’

  • I love crafting because it gives me the chance not to be acting as a Mum, a Nanna, a Wife, a Daughter, a Sister, or an In-Law, all of which are in the real world.
    But I can create a whole far away fantasy world where I can be anyone I want to be. A place where the purpose is to make something that makes people smile, la ugh, feel better, know that they’re never alone, and in doing all that, I can feel better too.
    In short, crafting has a lot in common with Mary Poppins – so I’m just off to spend the day in a magical picture!

  • I took up card making 5 years ago when my mom was diagnoses with vascular dementia.I think bieng able to create some thing with a few pieces of paper is the best type of therapy and being able to lose myself in create and craft for a few hours kept me sane,my mom died in January.My hobby has now developed into anything to do with paper and card, construction and mixed media. To have a great hobby and to feel like part of a big happy family is wonderful
