Seasonal Crafts

Blooming Bouquet Giant Cupcake CakeMarch is the perfect time to "spring" into crafting, and these spring themed projects will help make it easy and fun!  Best of all, there are also some great edible crafts, great for serving at Easter, Mother's Day, or just a simple springtime gathering.  For example, this Blooming Bouquet Giant Cupcake Cake from Michaels is a fun and easy edible craft that you can make for any reason.  Adorned with colorful fontant flowers, this giant cupcake cake is another fun way to express your creativity.

Even if you don't have much experience in cake decorating, you can find all the materials you need listed out for you inside The Ultimate Craft Guide.  Best of all, chances are you can find everything you need to decorate this cake at your local Michaels craft store.

Paper Crafts

you mean the world to me cardThe great thing about paper crafting is that it's something anyone can do.  From young children to seasoned designers, the art of crafting with paper can be appreciated by people of all generations. 

Most paper crafts are inexpensive, quick to do, and a great way to learn about mixing and matching colors and textures.  Scrapbook layouts, cards, and paper decorations are becoming more and more intricate, with elegant designs, stickers, and embellishments.  You can use all kinds of materials to help decorate your project and make it more your own.

That's the great thing about the paper projects in The Ultimate Craft Guide.  You can follow the directions exactly or you can use the project as a basic outline as you create your own fun design.  For example, the You Mean the World to Me card from Sizzix, which you can find inside this free downloadable eBook, can be made as is, or you can change it up for any occasion.  The sentiment can change, as can the embellishments and the color of the card stock.  Sizzix even provides you with a variety of sentiments and embellishments in this free eBook, so they make it easy and fun to create and customize your own card design.

Pattern still will not come up. When will it be available?

Ah! Thank you!

Also looking for the lacy, fingerless gloves pattern. This is where the link took me, but no sign of the pattern. Can anyone help?

i logged in to get a free pattern not for a book why don't u put your patterns in a form so a person can download just certain pattern not a whole book even tho it is free


Love your Site. I now have over 50 projects in my project library, not counting patterns or ideas from the books. I've downloaded this book and will look through it very soon. I just have to finish crocheting a dress for my toddler grand-daughter and a finish knitting a skirt that I am adapting into a dress by combining two patterns for my 5yr old grand-daughter. That's not mentioning a baby blanket and jacket, a baby cocoon, a knitted bracelet and a cardigan for myself. Love the Site, just a bit miffed I can't enter the competitions because I live in the UK. ;-)

I just signed up for the FREE e-book for crafters. There are a lot of good ideas that I've wanted directions to and I just HOPE there are no strings attached, other than the newsletter. I will give another comment after I've looked through the book to see that all the ideas are in there that you've described. Thank you, sincerely. Deborah Wade

I cannot get my free book how come? is there a special way to dowsload this?

I'm unable to get the pattern fr the pirouette cowl. why?

I have found at least one or two ideas out of all the suggestions, ideas and patterns from these books. I especially do crocheting and knitting but I am trying to expand what I do, and these books help.

I love the inspiration, I usually do something from the ebooks I download or something I put my own twist on. Thanks!

These books are so fun and easy to download! Makes it economical to get new projects and many times with supplies we already have at home :) Thank YOU Favecrafts for making crafting easy and sharing so much info to try something new!!

Cannot find family of hats knitting instructions.
