Tuesdays Crafternoon...

Hi Folks,

Im here today with a card I made on Tuesday afternoon. I did a Crafternoon Zoom Meet from over on the Craftworld Website.

You had to buy the items as a bundle from Craft Stash and then use them while the Tutor (Lou Collins)  showed you how to make the card as she did one too. 

I got Die Cutting Essentials magazine, a wee pot of WOW Embossing Powder and a lush wood effect paper pad from Craft Consortium for my make. You even used the with love from the demo pic on the die cuts card as part of the card. Loved that idea and I had never thought about using bits and pieces from the packaging before so its recycling too :) 

I had also never thought of using the dies as a stencil for the flowers before. Its really effective!! 

It was a really good afternoon. I wouldn't be able to go to a craft club as there would be too many people for my anxiety and I would freak out a bit so it was good to be able to sit in my crafty room and feel safe and enjoy the time. I picked up a few tips too so that was brilliant.

The Girls over there said there would be more meet ups in the future so I will be keeping my eye out for them as its a great way to learn and have some fun too. 

If anyone is over on Craftworld my name over there is Hazel-Didos. Look me up and give me a wee shoutout and I will follow you xx
