Card Making with Stampin' Up! UK

One thing you might not know about me is that I'm an arts and crafts nerd. I get it from my mum, and since I was little I've always made stuff - pasta collages, pringle tube monsters and cereal box houses, you name it, I've done it. My mum and I also used to make our own greetings cards, and we still have drawers upon drawers of card-making equipment. So when Stampin' Up! UK offered to send me over one of their Oh Happy Day card making kits*, I was instantly nostalgic for the days of pen-stained hands and a fringe stiff with PVA glue.

The kit retails at £31.50 and I think, personally, that's a really good deal - card making equipment can get SO expensive, and the stuff in here is amazing quality as well as being cute and practical. The kit comes in its own box, which makes it perfect for gifting, and everything is really well packaged.

So what do you get for your dollar? There's 13 stamps, and an acrylic block to stick them to so you don't end up with inky fingers. You get the ink, too, and then a ton of paper products: differently shaped cards, and envelopes, stickers/gems/twine, different shapes to play around with and some decorative coloured doilies. It's just such a good kit, and you can make up to 20 cards then use the leftover bits and pieces for other projects.

I made cards for Sam's mum and my mum for mothers day, and I plan on making birthday cards galore throughout the year - plus I think they turned out pretty good!
