We recently ran a competition with the Create and Craft blog team, in honor of World Card Making Day. The question was simple: Why do you love card making?
We were absolutely blown away by all 133 responses, it made us realize the importance crafting has in so many people’s lives. It’s a way to escape, it’s a way to relieve stress, it’s a way to feel a sense of accomplishment, it’s all that and more! We often come across people who scoff at the thought of the amount of effort people put into creating a timeless keepsake, but what they don’t realize IS the amount of time and effort the creator has put into developing their personalized card or layout or even that unbelievable OTP. Trying to pick a winner for this competition was incredibly hard, people opened up about how crafting completely transformed their lives, it saved them from depression and it gave them a new lease on life because they were able to bring someone else joy. They said watching Create and Craft on the telly was like having your best friends around all day everyday. Reading these comments completely embodied why we, at Fabscraps, LOVE what we do. We love that we can create products that crafties get excited about, it constantly gives us a reason to keep on going in a tough economic climate because above all else it brings us joy that someone somewhere in the world is creating or receiving something handmade from the heart. Let’s strive to keep the magic of creativity alive, one day at a time.
Have a look at the top 3 winning comments and tell us what card making, scrapbooking, mixed media or even quilting means to you? This world needs just a little bit of crafty love, let’s spread it wherever we go! You never know who’s day you are brightening 🙂
