Limited Cardmaking Supplies Challenge

Moving house across the state (2500 kilometres to be precise!) came with a few challenges, not withstanding the limited cardmaking supplies!

Challenge 1: When my job finished, so did our accommodation.

Challenge 2: Our family home was currently tenanted and the lease still had three months to go.

Challenge 3: Our belongings would need to be stored until we could move in.

They say “All good things come to those who wait.”

It was 2019 all over again but this time we knew it was happening.

A challenging class. No school stuff.

A strange house. No personal belongings.

Past experience has proven that having a crafty outlet is so good for my mental health.

Packing my ready-to-go bag of card making supplies was, in my mind, ESSENTIAL!

I packed the Pattern Party patterned paper which also gave me my colour palette of ink pads and card stock to pack.

In went two stamp sets and co-ordinating punches, plus one label punch.

These limited cardmaking supplies would satisfy any crafting urges over the next three months…

…Until the January to June 2022 Mini Catalogue came out!

So many MUST-HAVE items! I HAD to add the Rainbow Of Happiness stamp set, Let’s Set Sail bundle and the Heart & Home Memories & More Cards & Envelopes pack.

And of course I HAD to add the Rainbow patterned paper which came free during Sale-A-Bration.

I’ve managed to have three crafting sessions since returning to my hometown. One on my own in our accommodation and two with my old crafting group at their home.

I played with the Rainbow Of Happiness stamp set and co-ordinating patterned paper in my first session.

At my second session I made these cute cards using the Let’s Set Sail stamp set and the small card bases from the Heart and Home card pack.

The striped card in the Heart and Home Memories & More Cards & Envelopes pack was my next source of inspiration for my third session. I really love the Let’s Set Sail stamp set, especially with the background stamp Gentle Waves.
