Review of the Year...

Happy Tuesday,

As per usual at this time of year I like to do a review of the cards I have made and shared this year. I will be splitting this over the next 4 days so we start today with January, February and March.

I just had to go with this box I made using the Sue Wilson for Creative Expressions hexagonal box as I still love it!  To see how this was made click HERE.

For February I chose this card I simply love the colour and style of this card.  To see how this was made click HERE.

Finally for today its March and this creative offering.  To see how this card was made click HERE.  This black and white card is the second card on the post so scroll down to see it lol.

It would be great to hear which card was your favourite form the first quarter off the year!



  1. Fabulous cards. Sorry John no favourite. They are all just too good to choose from. There was a couple I didn't like quite as much over the year but I'm not going to tell you which ones. Just personal preference.
    I didn't manage to catch your second post yesterday as we had a house full - the dishwasher is still going! Will try to catch up with your shows today.
    Have a great day.
    Happy crafting.

  2. Morning John, beautiful cards and I think my favourite is the box I just love it I remember you showing it at the time but I'm going to check it out again. Just noticed you your second post so off to check it out just now.

  3. Hi John.
    Thank you so much all the cards are lovely.
    Take care and have fun Kitty.

  4. Good morning John, beautiful cards and box. Hard to choose a favourite but I do like February, I think I am drawn to the colour which is so lovely

  5. Morning John, my brain can't take all this pressure first thing in the morning, how can I choose...........oh let me think...........I am going to go with March because to me this card can be used for any occasion or for any gender.

    Thank you for your Hochanda programmes yesterday, lovely demos and inspiration.

    Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

  6. Morning John and crafters all,
    Lovely to see these cards, boxes again.
    Very difficult to pick a favourite but the 2nd one (red) stands out for me.
    Recorded last two episodes missed the earlier ones so will catch up on Hochanda. Odd times for a one day special.
    Love and crafty hugs to all,
    Tina T xxxx

  7. Just read your second blog yesterday so now understand why I missed your shows.
    All today's offerings are lovely but I think March just has the edge.

  8. Just love them all, John but if I had to choose, the box would just edge it !!

  9. Hi John
    I love the box, it had so much impact when you demoed it.

  10. All 3 are lovely-prefer the 3rd one though. Missed all your shows so will watch some on catch up.


  11. How could I have a favourite John? They're all adorable! Do love that box though because it's something different.

  12. Eh up John
    Love your end of year reviews. If its out of these 3, its tight but the black and white one edges it for me.
    At least you got all your shows done on one day yesterday. Cheese and chill today.

  13. Hi John. Love them all, but think the box just wins. Love Rosemarie X

  14. Hi John
    The box is lovely but the card from March wins for me.
    Still catching up with your shows.

  15. Good Morning John three gorgeous cards and projects, that box is stunning but for me the second one is my favourite. hugs Shirleyxxx

  16. I can't choose from such beautiful work love them the box is stunning so beautiful only crafters would know the skill required to do these
    Love June horrocks xxxxxxx

  17. Hi John, such beautiful creations, you have really given us so much inspiration this year, looking forward to what else you have picked out. Have a great day. Bx

  18. Morning John,
    Lovely reminder of your creations.

  19. Hi John. All lovely and its good to see that gorgeous box again. SueL x

  20. Morning John what a lovely selection of cards, and so nice to see them again. My favourite has to be the box, just love it, the colour style and composition - great.

  21. Hi John. I would have to agree that these are some of my favourite creations of yours too, although it must be difficult to choose as you have made so many lovely things over the last year. I look forward to seeing them all.


  22. Hi John

    Gorgeous selection and at first I thought the pink was my favourite but then I saw the third card and that was that.... my favourite!

  23. Hi John, your creations are all lovely but your gorgeous box just stands out for me.

  24. Hi John, so difficult to choose a favourite but The box is amazing.
    Love Valxxx

  25. Hi John, Hard to choose but I think the box wins by just a smidg over the lattice window, I have this lattice die and must be more adventurous, thanks for giving me a nudge!!!

  26. My favorite was January's Hexagonal box with tea light. I made two, one as a sample and one for a friend for Easter. My USA sized paper only allowed for four sides as opposed to your hexagonal size. I made my boxes before you supplied us with the measurements. Wish I had waited until you gave us instructions. None the less, I got my boxes made. My friend loved her box and I love mine! Thanks for this terrific "card".

  27. Hi John this is a gorgeous selection of cards. I have just done a top five on my blog. Next year I might do a top 10 it was hard to choose. I am very pleased with myself I made some backgrounds with my inky kitchen roll. I am looking forward to your selection of cards tomorrow. Take care. Hugs Jackie

  28. All lovely John very hard to choose but I think the box is amazing.
    Love Nancy x
