Pink Pig Donation

Today we had the pleasure of meeting two ladies from Pink Pig International when they brought us some boxes of offcuts AND some lovely black scrapbooks suitable for our Unremembered project.

I haven't had a chance to look inside the boxes yet but there were some lovely colourful bags of papers too - they handmake a huge range of scrapbooks, notebooks, watercolour and sketchbooks just down the road from us.

I'll be writing more once we've had a delve into the goodies but the reason we are excited to work with them is their use of paper which is sourced sustainably or recycled where possible, and the fact that they clearly try to minimise their waste by distributing it to local schools, and now us.

Using Printable Card Fronts for Making Handmade Cards

One of the members of a craft group run by our community centre made a card using our printable floral card set, adhering it onto cardstock and a coordinating piece of background paper and adding some fabric flowers from our donated stock.  We think it looks great!
