First Handmade Card Swaps

I recently participated in two card swaps. One of the swaps required you to
use the colour green, stamping and to create the card for Mother's Day
while the second swap required you to just make a Mother's Day card
and Mail Art ~ I never knew that there was really a term called Mail Art
I just thought it was decorating your envelope! Read more on Mail Art here

Anyways, since I have never before participated in any such swaps 
before, I thought why not now? So I created the two cards below.
I hope the recipients like them as much as I liked creating them.

I created this card for the Malaysia Cardmakers cards swap.
The materials I used were: pink satin ribbon {own stash}, 
a hand stamped cameo, white doiley {own stash}, 
green frame by Hearts & Crafts
thicker stickers from American Crafts and patterned paper 
from Making Memories. The patterned paper was something 
that I had from ages ago so it was good to go through my stash of stuff.

The materials used for this Mother's Day card are as follows:
American Crafts patterned paper, pink satin ribbon {own stash}, 
metallic silver doiley from Hearts & Crafts and stamps from

I am so glad that I participated in this swap.
I can't wait to create more cards and such stuff *smiles*

Supplies Surprise Bazaar #9

I recently participated in the FUYOH Art Bazaar on 31 March and I would like to announce that Hearts & Crafts will be participating in another bazaar, the Supplies Surprise Bazaar #9 which will be held this Saturday, 13 April 2013 from 12pm-7pm *smiles smiles*

This will be my first time at the bazaar and I am a little nervous to say the least. Butterflies are a plenty in my belly but part of the reason why I started Hearts & Crafts was not only to make some profits but to make new friends who are into arts and crafts and who can inspire me and craft with me *smiles* so in that sense I guess I am not so nervous *laughs* 

So anyways, I will be at Supplies Surprise Bazaar #9 at B-Free studio and I will be selling my full range of crafts supplies such as my happy washi tape {but of course}, patterned paper straws, embellishments, stickers, post-its, specially designed posters and bookmarks and more.

So do pen down this rather important date and visit the Supplies Surprise Bazaar. Do find below the location of the bazaar {at the BFree Studio} and if you wish to know more about the bazaar and the other lovely vendors {there will be vendors selling fabric, ribbons and all your crafting supplies} and receive updates, do visit the Supplies Surprise FB page or the Handmade Movement blog

I certainly hope to see you all there. Do drop by to say "hi" when you are there *smiles*
