USE YOUR SCRAPS. Here is what you can do with a bunch of leftover strips… ✂️

Happy Wednesday my friends,

I recently finished a dozen cards order and as a result, I ended up with a bunch of strips. I knew it well, that if they will go to my ridiculously overgrown pile of scraps I will probably not reach for them again or at least anytime soon… So here is what I did instead

I had so much fun while making it and most importantly rather then putting away all these strips I’ve made 3 additional cards. I’m super happy and proud of how they turned in:

This lovely embossing folder comes from

Creative Stamping Magazine 107: UK / US

And here is the very last card I’ve made with the remaining two strips and gorgeous sentiment from Card Making Magic:

I hope you will enjoy it and I’m wishing you all a good day. Stay safe and blessed everyone, I’m sending you my love and prayers. Hugs. Marta

MY FIRST DIGITAL COLLECTION

Hello my friends,

There will be lots of changes coming to my page but for now, I wanted to share with you my first digital collection, which I’ve designed thinking of Valentines, but also all weddings, anniversaries, welcome baby and many more occasions.

The collection contains 14 papers: 7 designs and 7 matching inserts.

The entire collection is available in one set for a very affordable price of £6 – less than 50p per design (considering that you can print it in as many copies as you like), but I’m also giving you the option to buy papers individually and pay only for the designs you like the most.

I’m also having a matching set of labels, which contains 80 digital elements.

The entire collection is available on my new page, which I’m just starting to build up and I wish to warmly invite you there

Or you can see all the papers on my Extras section of my Buy Me a Coffee page:

https://www.buymeacoffee.com/dropofsunshine/extras

The money raised from selling this collection and all others which will be coming shortly will help me to keep continuing to design and share more printable papers with you (including free ones too!)

And for that, I’m so grateful for all your support for my family and my creations.

If you will be looking forward to seeing some inspirations made from these papers, check my free Facebook live classes:

And here you can see a couple of my projects made from these papers:

one year anniversary of my design papers

Hello my friends,

I hope everyone are well. I’ve not had a chance to post anything on my blog for ages but I’ve been super busy and a lot of things has been going on in my crafty live.

Here is a quick video which is an introduction to what I have planned for tomorrow:

That was my very first ever paper collection I ever shared:


all these designs are now available at:

Buy me a coffee

(I switched to BMC to help out my budget as I’m spending long hours designing these free papers plus additionally the platform provides me with statistics so I know how many friends are downloading my papers, which will be handy to estimate how much interest is in my designs if I would ever decide to produce a hard copy. There are no obligations to pay for my free papers or to use options to buy a coffee, this is simply a gesture of support to a creator)

And here is my card made out of these Autumn collection papers

Thank you so much my friends for all, watching my videos and sharing them.

You can also support my creations by using one of my affiliate links. By using one of those links or any other one I’m giving you here or underneath my YouTube videos and the rest of my social media, you are supporting me and my family as Craft Stash is paying me a little % for every time you are buying anything from the store by visiting it via one of my links, for which I’m very grateful as this helps me to add to my family budget.

I just wanted to give you all a heads up about the massive sale on nesting dies Craft Stash has for you over this weekend. There is plenty of different offers too, but basic shapes are the one we use in our everyday crafting and the prices they are on now (30% off) is something you cannot beat!!!

Using a large stamp as a focal point
