Inspiring your friends or family to spend time crafting, scrapbooking, making cards or getting artsy is a wonderful thing! I have hosted numerous crafty afternoons for friends and years ago I taught painting and art journaling classes. Some of us love to collect pretty things, tools, and supplies, so it makes it easy for us to share some of the “goods” for an afternoon of fun! It can be intimidating to get crafty for some people and a craft club day can show your friends what they need and let them experience the pleasure of making something!
My crafty pals are going to make cards using the Maggie Holmes Boxed Cards. The box comes with 40 cards & envelopes, and the designs are a wonderful compliment to the brand new Willow Lane Collection by Maggie Holmes. The ready to go cards make it easy to get right to the fun part – decorating!!
I used Willow Lane to decorate for my craft club party paired with vintage linen and vintage glass baking dishes and assorted ceramic bowls to hold embellishments. I fussy cut a whole sheet of butterflies from the Flutter paper to have ready to use!
The washi tape sits with the Let the Good Times Roll card in the stand. I couldn’t help but think that was cute 🙂 I added twine and buttons and other bits and pieces to decorate cards.
A 12×12 paper makes the perfect placemat for the crafty setting and can be used during the party! Part of the fun of setting up a craft party is the preparation and having the area look cute and inviting!
Everyone got their own adorable animal for the day! The name tag items are lightly adhered so that the embellishments can be used on the craft!
It is a great idea to pre-select a few ephemera items for the cards to set at each area. This takes some of the stress of knowing what goes together out of the crafty pals decisions! I added the heart washi tape to the clothespins for a custom touch and to keep items together.
I encourage you to use your crafty supplies and inspire others to craft by hosting a craft club day or afternoon!!
