Craft The Year Away!

Anice at Funky Hand has a new cd for release today! If you missed the show earlier this morning on Create and Craft then you will have missed just how wonderful this new cd - Craft The Year Away is!

It's the third cd in the Papercraft Factory format, but its had a mini makeover! You can now create your own verses and text to match the papers and there are some templates on the cd too - wobble cards and door hangers!

Each of the twelve colour collections are suited to a month of the year and to make this exploding box and baby shoes, I've used Evening In June and made the templates up as I've gone along. And it wasn't that plain sailing either as I managed to make two left feet, but I had enough paper printed to make another one!

The flowers have been cut using a Cuttlebug die and I've added buttons and string for detail.

The lid on the exploding box is a rather snug fit as I forgot to allow enough overhang!! But aren't the colours lovely?!

You'll have to wait until 1pm before you can buy the cd but the wait will be worth it! Some peeks of the cd have been shown on Get Funky! which is our challenge blog that runs from the funky fifteenth of the month for a whole month! You do need to use a Funky Hand element but with a freebie each month on offer that ties in with the challenge, you really are on a winner! And talking of winners, the top project gets a £20 voucher to spend on Funky Hand products!!
