Trying new things....

Sometimes to grow and develop we need to push ourselves out of our comfort zones and that is certainly what I have done this week.

I tried hand lettering for the first time, the results can be found over on my YouTube channel, I have linked the video below for you.

It was certainly challenging, with a lot of room for growth and development!!!

I will persist and not be defeated!

At least the video may give you a few chuckles...

What new techniques will you try this year? Please let me know in comments.
Happy crafting

Creating with Papercraft Society boxes

Hello, how are you? I hope you are having a good week.

Today I am sharing a card I made using box 4 from Papercraft Society.

This card is a shaker card and uses the stunning patterned vellum as well as the dandelion paper, sequins and leaf frame die that was included in the box.

I also used papers from Vintage tea party from Signature collection- Sara Davies and embellishments I had in my Stash.

The ink I used on this card was:

Tim Holtz Distress ink - Victorian Velvet

Artnic pigment ink - black

I have included a link at the bottom for the video of this card being created over on my channel and I hope you will check it out.

Thank you for visiting my blog today, I hope you will come back soon for more crafting fun

Product Review 

This week I decided to put together and review a kit I recently purchased at The Works.

The kit is a Create your own gift box kit and was in the sale for £1.50

I was actually drawn to this kit originally by the toppers that are part of the kit as I knew I would be able to use them on other projects.

I make my own gift boxes but I was intrigued to see how easy this kit would be to put together.

A full video can be found on my YouTube channel which I have linked below for you.

Happy crafting
