Create & Take: Ladies Day

Hi bloggers, it's the start of another week and time to recap on Friday's Create & Take and also post some photos of our Macmillan Coffee Morning which was a great success! There was an abundance of cake on offer on Friday and it was very hard for us Crafts U Love girls to control ourselves as they all looked so yummy! We would like to thank everyone who attended the morning and joined in with the Create & Take or bought a few of the many cakes on offer. The total amount we raised for Macmillan Cancer Support came to an amazing £169.30! Thank you everyone!!

Last week's Create & Take was the last in the series of our 'family affair' birthday theme. The last week was a card for the female birthdays in the family, such as mum, aunt, grnadmother, cousin, sister and so on..... So let's get going with the products you will need and those all important instructions.

These new Die-Versions die cuts have a range of beautiful designs that are all perfect for a female birthday, therefore you could easily change that element on the card and keep everything else the same! Check out the new Die-Versions dies here.

Next month's Create & Take's will take on a more autumnal feel as we head into the new season.
