Make your cards stand out with this easy guide. Paper piecing involves layering card and paper together to create a unique design. I have fashioned a 1950’s inspired paper pieced cat that’s purrfect for Valentine’s Day. It’s made using subtle shades and the edges are inked to really make the colours pop. The facial features of the cat are then drawn with a black fineliner while bright coloured paper and puffy heart stickers finish off this cute greeting in true crafty style.

Give your living room a burst of festive warmth with a piece of fabric embellished heart art, mounted in a simple yet stylish whitewash frame. The co-ordinating gift-tag, whipped up from classic red printed fabric and delicate details, would also double up as a contemporary bauble-style hanging for the Christmas tree.

There’s something especially wonderful about crafting to celebrate a birth. It’s such a precious event to mark and the items may well be treasured for a lifetime. These delightful makes use vintage-style patterns and traditional techniques to create a timeless look that will never date. The heart-shaped book would be the ideal place to display those first snaps, while the cushion would brighten up a cot and perhaps inspire matching items, such as curtains or a blanket.

Spots are tipped to continue as one of the hottest crafting trends throughout 2009, making this pretty set a must-have. The hanging heart decorations are simply delightful ­ why not add a few drops of scented oil to the toy filling and turn it into a sweet-smelling sachet. Felt is a really good material to work with.
