Christmas is just 4 weeks and 2 days away, and we’re enjoying every minute of the build up! 1st December is when the tree goes up, and Christmas takes over at home (and in the Card Nest studio!). Before that happens, however, we’re getting involved in the Greetings Card Association’s ‘Festive Friday’ – a day…

Collection 25: October 2016 – Christmas!

I’ve taken some time out of pinning which Halloween-themed cupcakes I’m going to bake to bring you this month’s subscriber delivery – which features this year’s Card Nest Christmas collection.

We’ve hand-picked two…

2017 Planners: A Peek Into New Collections

Ok, so we might only be half way through 2016, but my attention is already being turned to 2017, as designers unveil the previews for their 2017 planners. I’ve recently switched back to pen and paper, as I was growing nostalgic over the planners I used in school (sadly, a long time ago!). While I could…
