been away so long

I have had a huge break from crafting since giving up as a SU demonstrator but i’m gradually getting back into creating things and hope to share some soon.


Flight of butterfly

Held a workshop last weekend for seven crafting ladies. We made an easel card and a small pizza style box, which held four tealight candles.
The colours we used were:
Inks So saffron, rose red, real red,ruby red
Stamps flight of butterfly and mini tags
Card and dsp in colours to match inks and dsp was from new mini catalogue Sweet pea paper
Accessories, scallop circle punch , mini tag punch and border eyelet punch
Ribbon so saffron
I must just add the both the items are cased from fellow demos ,I forget who but hope they don’t mind me sharing their ideas.
Will post more later

Sorry for the long delay without pictures
