Hello again

I am back today with another new collection from Kanban Crafts which has recently been taken over by Katy Sue Designs. This means that we can combine the papers and peelables that are known to Kanban Crafts fans with the boxes and stepper cards supplied by Katy Sue.

The starting point for my projects was the exquisite 12×12 papers which feature different songbirds perching amongst peach coloured foliage and grey/blue nesting boxes. I must admit to humming the wartime tune “A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square” which my Mama sang whilst working around the house. I am sorry if you now have that as an earworm!

Nightingale Square launches on Create and Craft TV on Thursday 28th April at 4pm and 8pm – with an additional show on Friday 29th April at 8am. After one week’s exclusivity, you can purchase the collection directly from the Katy Sue website.

Have a beautiful day

I adapted one of the stepper cards to fit inside a 6×6 pre-scored box. Older Kanban dies were incorporated into the design along with hints of mat gold card.

Two-drawer easel box card

Once the boxes have been made, it is relatively easy to form a paper wallet around them in order to stack them up onto each other. The peelables in the corner of the easel card perfectly finish the design.

A Handbag

The box can also be adapted to create a handbag with matching notelets. This particular one was made with the inside of the Covid packaging!

If you would like to see these projects in greater detail then I would recommend watching my latest YouTube video.
