There has been a few post about this lilsmum, have a look at previous posts on here, and before we had the Arts & Crafts section, there were a few threads going on Swap Shop. There is even a Yahoo link with some of our creations somewhere!
If you can't find what you need to know, then fire away- I am sure there will be someone around to help!
Goood luck with another, very addictive hobby!
Have you got anything yet?

nope not got a thing yet, i was looking at some stuff in the studio catalogue as they have a half price sale on at mo, but didnt know if they were cheaper than anywhere else tbh.

E-bay is pretty good for some things....but watch out for P&P can get a good bargain from there...I just got 100 hammer finished cards for 1.20....BARGAIN.
I also use a company called Artie-Kraftie....they sell loads of bits and bobs to get you started.
I just bought a new magazine called "do crafts" easily explains how to make your cards and lists all the things you need to get.
The examples of the cards are really good and there are some ace templates to use.
Also if you have a good craft shop near by see if they stock the Anita's range because its all on special at the moment....stamps from 99p and ink pads for £1.50.
Also check out for more ideas.

Happy crafting.....

Cheers Dingle......must learn how to do the links!!!

JaysMum, you were doing what I used to-you've missed off a description near the end-this is what will actually show on screen for the link IYSWIM, you were also using the wrong / too.

I just copy & paste from the instructions and alter the details by pasting from the site. It took by a while too!

Dingle....the problem is that I only know how to cut and paste paper and card!!!!!and I'm not joking!!!!!
