I apologize for this blog seems to be all over the place with all my product reviews, my personal inane thoughts, and now, I’m adding a Crafts category. But it is what it is. I enjoy all these things and this is my blog so, let’s get to it.
Also I may need to update my blog layout for easier navigation.
I first found out that cardmaking/papercrafting was a thing online when I saw this papercrafting post on my Tumblr dashboard. I was mesmerized. I always loved papercrafts. Of course I didn’t know it was called as such when I was younger, but my mother and I bonded over making dolls out of white paper. She would teach me how to make a doll, her clothes, various furniture. It was wonderful, she always made such pretty dolls. We would draw faces on the doll silhouettes and I got to design the tiny doll clothes.
That love for cutting paper carried over to when I started school, I’d love making cards for people. Even when I got to college, I had this packaging class that made me do things with paper again. But it was only recently that I discovered that cardmaking and scrapbooking is a legit thriving community online! I missed so much, so I just jumped right in.
It’s very hard to find card stock here where I live (read: Manila). It’s always these weird neon colors and I couldn’t find different shades of colors, so I just had to make do with what was available. Also, patterned card stock is even harder to find, and those 12×12 piles which are available at Fully Booked costs more than a thousand bucks, so…no go for me.
But hey it still turned out pretty good, right? Yay for cardmaking!
