Did you know that March is National Craft Month?
National Craft Month has become an international celebration. Created by the Craft & Hobby Association in 1994, it was designed to help people learn about and re-discover the joy of crafting and all its many benefits. It’s the perfect excuse to indulge in all things crafty.
Here are my Stampin’ Up! Rubber Stamping & Paper Crafting ideas for you to celebrate National Craft Month:
TEACH SOMEONE TO STAMP: Everyone can benefit from taking up stamping or crafting in general. We all have creative abilities. Take what you know and teach someone else, so they can enjoy the satisfaction and rewards that only being creative can fulfill. Better yet, become a demonstrator!
FINISH AN UNFINISHED PROJECT: Pull out all those half started projects and finish them. If you’re anything like me, you probably have pre-cut card stock, scraps of card stock and punched card stock lying around. Use these to complete a card or scrapbook page you’ve started. I know many of you, after a class,like to leave your coloring for home. Well, now is the perfect time to do all of your coloring! I just finished another Valentine’s Day Banner. Now I have two all ready for next year! After all I had all the parts cut.
LEARN & TRY OUT A NEW TECHNIQUE: Go to my Technique Tid-Bit category and try a technique you’ve never done before. You’ll be surprised at the fun you’ll have.
DO ONE EXTRA PROJECT: Make one extra birthday card or gift this month for a loved one. I’m holding two classes this month instead of one in celebration of National Craft Month.
STAMP WITH FRIENDS: Schedule a day to stamp with your family and friends. Have pizza delivered and make some cookies with the Stampin’ Up! Sweet Press Cookie Stamps. What could be nicer then stamping, pizza and cookies?
TAKE TIME FOR YOURSELF: Leisurely look through the Stampin’ Up! Catalogs and treat yourself to a gift of some new supplies.
TAKE A CLASS: Sign up for one of my classes this month. You still have time to sign-up for the Springtime and Easter Class.
May this post inspire you to go right now and pull out you stamps, ink, paper and to most importantly, “PLAY!”
Until we talk again, be well!
