I have the template and list of products below the video. I have all the measurements and what to do as captions on the video as you watch it. Below is the list of products I used: Punches –… Read more »

Hello again. I meant to post this Friday as I wanted Friday to become my regular video day. However, new technology and old technology made things a little difficult.

However, think ahead to Mothers’ Day and you could easily put: a… Read more »

Have you ever had an idea in your head about a card and even a mental picture of what it should look like? Well that’s what happened with this card. However, it hasn’t turned out anything like the mental picture. As I say to many: “There’s never any mistakes or errors or even disasters, only creations.” (OK, some disasters can’t be retrieved but may be able to be used for something else as every bit of card has 2 sides)… Read more »

Well, I expect you’re wondering what happened to posts last week? I have a really good reason for not posting – I was moving my small craft room downstairs into what used to be a rumpus room, then a games room which was used once a year.
