Found on Friday August Part 1

It's that time of the month again where I feature here on the blog those makes that caught my eye over in our customer only group on Facebook.

First off this fabulous kitty calendar from Rebekka really jumped out at me.  Newton's Look at all the fun stuff she has Newton doing every month.   Rebekka used a variety of Nook stamps to decorate the Hero Arts Calendar Kit - what a fabulous gift this would be!

I really love how Helen has used the Crystal Frame die from Altenew and decorated it with flowers in the same tone - great way to make a cohesive design and to turn small elements into a focal point.

Sophie's brother-in-law runs a dog walking business so this is the perfect personalised birthday card for him using the Lawn Fawn Critter Chat Pets in their Speech Bubble Backdrop Die.

How could you not be drawn to this super cute pirate card by Emma?  Cutting the dome frame to pop the scene in the background is a really clever technique and gives room to show off the Party Like a Pirate set to it's fullest.

Sympathy cards are never an easy thing to make, but this one Jess made is perfect in it's simplicity.  The vintage flower stamp from Concord & 9th has so much detail that simple monochrome is all it needs especially paired with a big bold sentiment.

Julie had lots of fun making lots of Snapdragon cards and there were all knock-out, but I picked just one that really caught my eye.  I loved how the tonal stencilled background really worked so well with the flowers - especially how the florals interact with the geometrics.  Fab!

Finally in this edition, we have a fabulous Christmas card from Jodie - let's face it, it will be here before we know it so I guess we should all get making Christmas cards soon!   She created a fun little scene using Mama Elephant's Little Agenda train full of presents ready for the big day!

Hope this highlights a few sets you may not have seen in use before - we try our best as a DT to highlight what we can, but there are just too many releases to do justice so sharing as many great customer makes is another way to provide you with crafty inspiration.

If you want to join in and have your makes featured here, then head to the Facebook group and join the fun.   You have to be a Seven Hills Crafts customer to join us, so will be asked to provide an order number before joining the group so grab an invoice before signing up.

We'll be back with our next edition of Found on Friday at the end of August so you've got a couple of weeks to start adding your makes to the group for a chance to be featured, and we do it every 2 weeks after that!
