Getting Crafty With

Collaborative Post

Many of you will know I love a bit of crafting! Most of my projects are aimed at children and are created from my years of experience as Brownie leader (aka Snowy Owl).

Just like when I create crafts and activities for my Brownies, a lot of the ones here on Mummy Snowy Owl are budget ones. Nobody wants to spend a lot of money on craft items that they may not use again. Many of us also don’t have the money to buy expensive craft materials or equipment that might only be used on a couple of projects.

I’m all about budget shops, discount coupons, free or cheap printables and downloads and sharing resources. A good look round can find a reasonably priced and good quality resource or supplier. Whether it be knitting, embroidery or paper crafts like scrapbooking and card making, there is usually a bargain to be found.  Whether it be stack of supplies from Poundland, wool from Poundstretcher or discount coupons for Hobbycraft, I love them all!  

Printables and downloads can sometime be a little trickier to find and you may struggle to find them in one complete place. This could lead to hours of searching and clicking only to have to download and save items from lots of different sites, including ones that you may not have used before and may feel reluctant or concerned to use. Personally I always think it’s best to use a site you’ve used before, are familiar with or have been recommended.

So, when I was recently introduced to Design Bundles I was keen to have a look at what downloads they had available and there’s a huge range! Over at they offer exclusive deals on quality design resources, along with free ones too. There are savings available up to 96% off the recommended retail price and their designs are created by a huge amount of independent designers. Meaning when you order from them you’re probably supporting a small independent business too!

There are free design resources each week, which is great for those of us running or supporting local groups, such as uniformed groups like Brownies and Guides, or community resource centres. also offer a lifetime download guarantee and with their unlimited support if something isn’t quite right with the SVG vectors or cut files, one of their team will be able to give you a hand. This is ideal for those that are super crafty but not tech savvy!

There’s a huge amount of different files on offer too, so this is a resource that every single type of crafter can use. There are downloads and patterns available for embroidery, scrapbooking and papercutting. The files are compatible with all major design programs, including Cricut and Scan N Cut, so if you’re lucky enough to have a fancy machine (I wish I had one) then the site is definitely worth a scroll!

There are also files for every type of event and season! Funny quotes, sign bundles, various Christmas designs, summer packs, stylish wedding pieces, cute unicorns and lots, lots more. There's just so much to make and this cute print is definitely on my make list!

In fact there’s so much to offer I’ve suddenly come over all crafty! Now where’s my scissors?!
