To kick off our Christmas in July craft event we have a very special Today's Special Value from Martha Stewart. The set of punches are great for decorating all sorts of papers and card and our guest, craft expert Alex Peruzzi, will be here to tell us all about them.
Check out the video below in which Alex demonstrates how easy to use these types of punches are.
Please note that the punches in the video are not the same pattern as our Today's Special Value punches.
Alex Peruzzi is on QVC TV throughout the day presenting a fantastic set of punches from the Martha Stewart craft range – Today's Special Value.
To mark the occasion, we thought we'd ask Mr Peruzzi a couple of questions about the world of craft…
What sets Martha Stewart's craft products apart from other brands?
Our Martha Stewart Crafts line reflects our understanding of what crafters want and need because it is what we ourselves want and need – practical tools and an array of beautiful and inspiring materials.
Each product is designed with great attention to detail. Our specialised tools have been created with the crafter in mind - focusing on safety, comfort, ease of use and aesthetics.
Our extensive glitter offerings come in perfect shades and are inspired by our favourite gemstones and precious metals - for example, tourmaline, lapis lazuli, hematite, Florentine gold, brownstone, kunzite and crystal to name a few.
What are your favourite craft projects to create and why?
My favourite craft is card making. I love the art of designing each one and the look on people's faces when they receive them. I am constantly amazed when recipients of my cards hold on to them for years to come.
How did you get in to crafting?
My love of crafts began in elementary school in my arts and crafts classes. I still have a writing assignment I did in first grade where I explained that I wanted to be an artist when I grew up. I think continuing this kind of in-school program is so important for children's development.
Where do you draw your inspiration from?
Since my cards are always gifts, the inspiration always comes from the person the card is for. I'm also lucky to be surrounded by some of the most creative and inspiring people every day at my job.
