Posted for You – Mini One Sheet Wonder

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I love to share my love of papercrafting, partly thru my classes, blog and YouTube channel and when someone becomes a member of my demonstrator team. Last month there was a special joining offer and one of my ladies jumped at the chance. When someone does join my team I like to welcome them with a small handmade gift and card.

The Posted for You stamp set has the cutest of images and greetings, they allowed me to create a mini one sheet wonder to use as a focal point on both my card and gift and I had a piece left over to make a birthday card.

I’m Back…………………….

I have been conspicuous by my absence over the last couple of weeks, partly this is ‘life’ stepping in but mainly it was due to me preparing for the Stampin’ Getaway I hosted last Saturday.  Although I had done a lot of designing and prep work thru August and September, there was a bunch of stuff that could not be done until the last minute – that took some time!

Anyway, I want to share some of the experience with you…………..
