SNAIL MAIL SUITE - Cards and More and Holder

I shared this project LIVE on my Facebook page yesterday.  I absolutely LOVE this suite of products from the new JANUARY-JUNE MINI CATALOGUE which goes live as of today - HOORAY!!!!

If you missed the LIVE here it is on replay via my YouTube Channel:


Just the sort of thing to cheer you up given the recent news of yet another lockdown.  I am determined to focus as much as possible on the things that make me happy to get me through the next couple of months and crafting with these beautiful products is one of them!

You may think of snail mail as being a thing of the past, what with all the digital ways we connect these days, but I say there is nothing quite like receiving a physical piece of post through your door, especially something written by hand or better still MADE by hand.
I have set myself a personal challenge to try and write to three people a month - aside from birthdays and anniversaries (I need to get more organised in that department also, by the way!) and reconnect.  In this busy life and crazy world I am looking forward to slowing things down and winding the clock back a little even.

This set is perfect for spreading a little joy - it is bright and happy and makes me smile.  I have named the two main snails Simon and Sally (after my brother-in-law and mother respectively - and of course respectfully!)

Here are those all important measurements if you would like to make the notecard holder yourself, followed by a list of the products featured in this project.

Please share your makes inspired by this project on your social media using the hashtags #back2craftingweek, #hailsnailmail and of course #hartandcraft
