Autumn crafting roundup

There's no denying it. Autumn is most definitely here. The mornings are colder, the evenings are darker and we've just put the heating on. It's disappointing to say goodbye to summer, but on the plus side - autumn means one thing for me: CRAFTING. Is there a better way to spend a chilly evening than wrapped up in wool as you make your latest project? Or a better thing to do on a cold weekend morning than getting out photos of summer to scrapbook? And it's definitely time to start making those Christmas cards. Here at Wightcat we've got plenty to keep you busy as the weather changes....

8x8 pop ups

These beautiful kits from Hunkydory are gorgeous. 8X8 is an unusual size, so they'll definitely stand out against all the others on the shelf! The decoupage is easy to do (nice sharp die-cuts) and creates a really thick, dimensional image.


Hunkydory have also made some brilliant Christmas card kits as well. I love the idea of the jumping boxes, and the Kinetic Cards look gorgeous. And who can resist the snowmen with their special snowdrift sparkles?

These clear stamps are a new range for us - and what a range it is! They have everything from Christmas, to beautiful scrolls and patterns, greetings and sentiments, and cute images. They're so new that I haven't had a chance to make any samples yet, but you can be sure I will!

We know you love these La Pashe Trinitage cards - so much so, that we've added some new designs as well.

If you like parchment craft, you might be interested in the latest from Christine Coleman
or our very own WightKitten Christmas card designs. As one half of this design team, I'm especially proud of these :)

If you want to add some texture to your cards this year - why not try some Flowersoft Ultra Fine? You don't have to use it with Flowersoft images - it's great for adding some extra depth to any stamped or pre-printed image.

If your crafting is more yarn-based than paper, then Wightcat Wools can help you out there too!
Mindy has some great Christmas knitting patterns in stock, as well as plenty of patterns for you to make those Christmas presents for everyone. And with the weather turning colder, it's the perfect time to make something in Cygnet Grousemoor Chunky - our newest range.

I hope there's something there to inspire you...whatever you do, make sure your Autumn is a craft-filled one!
