I hope those of you that caught my shows on Create and Craft last Thursday enjoyed the samples and demos. Some of my favourite items on the show were the Kevin Walsh Nostalgia Christmas cardmaking pads volumes 1 and 2.
I love Kevin’s nostalgic look at Britain – in some cases childhood memories and then some older views and scenes. I always feel Christmas itself makes me nostalgic for childhood times, so these fit very well with the feelings I already get around that time.
The great thing about the cardmaking pads is that they include the useful extras like borders and sentiments, some decoupage options and even some little pictures that look cute on the back of the card.
The other component of the pads is the selection of backing papers to coordinate with the images and some – for example, the brick wall – are super handy with many other images too!
