Crafting with the Stars: Ambassadors’ Favourite Blogs
These past few days, we’ve been bringing together the stars of the crafting world! We’re so proud of all our guests and you, our amazing readers. What’s on the agenda today? The Create & Craft Ambassadors! This group of experts has been providing you with knowledge and inspiration for a few years now, so we think it’s time to see what they’re most proud of. Here are our Ambassadors‘ favourite projects from blogs or the Create & Craft Club Magazine.
“My favourite is definitely the Christmas Tree Skirt (from Christmas in June this year). In fact, I’m just about to use it — our tree went up today!”
“I enjoyed making the cats for International Cat Day and I also really enjoyed my Halloween projects. First of all, making the cobweb bag (even though I hate spiders!), and secondly the witch’s legs and dismembered hand! In fact, making them has actually inspired me to throw a Halloween party next year as we live in a house built in 1695 with the scariest cellar ever! So watch this space for some petrifying projects in October 2018!”
“My favourite project of the year has been a large wall canvas featuring a seahorse made from the rubbish I collected from Watergate Bay beach (Cornwall) in the summer. It’s called Plastic Paradise and is a crafty reminder of the damage we’re doing to our oceans and coastlines. In short, take your rubbish home! The painted background is a combination of Pinflair‘s Buff-It Cream and Liquid Buff-It, and the stencils are from Stamps Away.”
“My favourite project has been the Halloween Teeth Biscuits — they look so effective and gruesome but were very easy to create. My proudest project has been the Chocolate Cake I created especially for National Cake Decorating Day — being able to incorporate intricate hand craftsmanship to create a stunning showstopper exclusively for Create & Craft.”
“My favourite project of this year was the Watercolour Butterfly Frame I designed for the Create & Craft Club Magazine. It took some work to get it just right but I loved the finished look — it was totally worth it!”
“My favourite project this year was the little felt deer I designed for the Create & Craft blog. It’s so rewarding to see what started as a sketch come to life and have a character of its own! It was a great project for beginners too, and can be hand sewn so no sewing machine needed here! I’m imagining little families of deer helping you celebrate Christmas across the country this year.”
“It was very hard to choose my favourite project as there are so many I have enjoyed doing. But, the buttercream dreamcatcher cake is the one I learnt so much from as I hadn’t worked in buttercream for many years and I’m not a keen piper. Wilton’s readymade buttercream and piping set were a pure joy.”
“My favourite has to be this choker I designed back in the summer. It’s a real statement piece and I have them dressed on display busts in my study. They are a lovely make and a piece that’s always complimented when worn. It’s ideal for special occasions and would make a beautiful festive accessory for any party.”
