Joyfold card ft Fred-she-said


Happy New Year!!!

Did you make any New year resolutions? Do you think you will stick to them?

I made some and I managed to stick to last years for the whole of 2021!! Check out this video to find out what they were/are!

I am starting this year with my favourite fold, the joy fold. This fold makes me so happy, so seemed a perfect way to start my new year! 

It is a year since I applied and was accepted onto and this is my eleventh dt project for them.

This month I am using papers by Fred-she-said which you can find here

I love the promises of spring held within the focal image and now the days will start getting longer it hopefully won't be long until the trees are budding again and new life starts to burst through.

I have made many joyfold cards before and have a tutorial for a 6 x 6 joyfold card which can be found on the link below

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and that 2022 is better for all of us!
