Get ready to Party...

...with a little quick & easy crafting.

Here in the UK 'Jubilee' fever and 'Olympic' frenzy are taking a grip. Shops are full of things Red/White/Blue and Mandeville & Wenlock (the game mascots).

Lots of folk will be attending Jubilee parties or even holding their own and you can pick up suitably designed paper plates/cups/tablecloths etc. at very reasonable prices - just have a look in your nearest £ or bargain store.

Whether you will be going out to an event or just celebrating at home there are lots of opportunities to do a bit of crafting - there are certainly enough themed materials around.

Yesterday I received an email from My Craft Studio inviting members to drop by and download some digi freebies - they are fab. They come in two options 'grungy' and 'traditional' and there is really everything you need to make a few bits and pieces for your celebrations.

I printed off some of the 'grungy' items and in no time at all went from this... this... can leave the items as they are or decorate them to your hearts content.

The download contains gift bags & boxes, as you can see. There are also cake boxes, cupcake wrappers, bunting, crackers and a variety of background designs.

My Craft Studio isn't the only site offering goodies at the moment - why not have a bit of a 'web-surf' and I'm sure you will find lots of ideas and things to play with. Go on, get ready to party - you know you want to............................

Lol! Looks fab Toni! Hope you have had a chance to sit down and read Creative Cardmaking now! Glad I could remind you that you had it to read LOL! I'm doing that all the time, getting a mag then forgetting to read it. It kind of needs a cup of tea or a train journey!
Have fun!
