First DT product review and card design made for
one stop craft shop.
Afternoon everyone hope your well? Time for me to share with you all
my first product review and card design using the wonderful products I was sent from
Thought I would start at the beginning with the Papermania
soild cardstock.....

  No crafting project can start without a good quailty card stock wheather it's for a
scrapbook page, off the page project or a handmade card. I found the Papermania 6x6 soild cardstock I was sent a really good place to start. With 75 different colours in one handy storage box you can find the prefect colour to work with your project. The cardstock is a nice weight at 216gsm and has a nice flat finish, making this ideal for die cutting, punching, embossing and stamping on. As you can see in the picture above this pack has a wonderful range of colour tones to each colour family, from browns, greens, blues, reds, purples, and oranges.You can find these cardstock pads on the
One stop craft shop website
They have them in 6x6 8x8, 12x12, so a size and price to
 suit all types of crafters.
This is where I started my card design from
and this was the end designs I came up with...
For my card I layed the papers from the 'Hey boy' paper pad with the 'Papermania cardstock',
 arranged them on my card front. I used the cardstock to punch the little stars out, as you can see they punched out lovely and crisp. I stamped my image which is a Penny black stamp, coloured it and added to my card. I picked one of the frames from the 'Hey you' chipboard packet, found a travel themed topper in the' Hey you' snippets booklet. I layed them together, stuck to my card front at a angle. I Then found some chipboard shapes in the' Hey you' chipboard packet to make my sentiment, I added the celecbrate one to the top of my design, added the arrow and tag to the side. I used peel off letters to add the words 'and' 'enjoy'. To complete my design I used some of the matching emblishments from the' Hey boy' set. The whole design was pulled together by the fact that the whole 'Basic Grey' 'Hey boy' and 'Hey you' ranges have had their colours matched perfectly to work together.
All these product can be found for sale now on the
'Hey you' and 'Hey Boy' Basic Grey ranges
Thanks for stopping by would love to hear your comments and feedback so please feel
