Butterfly Birthday

Butterfly Birthday

How are you all doing in these strange days? Things are starting to open up now, but there is still a lot of uncertainty. Sorry I haven’t been around, I had a bit of a mental health blip, but my lovely family have rallied round and encouraged me and I am doing a lot better now. I am very lucky; although I live in a house with three autistic family members and a pre-teen who don’t always realise when I cannot cope or what to do about it, my eldest daughter, who may be over 200 miles away,  can still tell if things are not going well with me and will get people to check in with me.

At the weekend I took part in an online retreat with the Pinkies, Michelle Last’s team and I had a lovely time crafting alongside other like-minded people. Although we weren’t together in person, we were able to chat in a zoom room as we worked on our projects and it was so lovely. I will try and share some of the brilliant projects that we made over the next few days.

Today’s project is a little brighter than I would normally do, to reflect the bright and cheerful colours of the Designer Series Paper.

Sunflower Die Cut Card

In-colour Sunflower

This is the first of my projects from our Annual Catalogue Launch Event. We are not allowed to include stamped images in our kits and I think the Well Written Dies are just brilliant, so they were perfect for this project.

Jar of Flowers Shaker Card

pootlers blog hop

jar of flowers

Today is the Pootlers’ new Annual Catalogue Blog Hop, so please go around and visit everyone and see the great projects they have made with products from the new catalogue.

I was a little nervous about trying this bundle out, but I was pleasantly surprised. It was very easy to use. It has a punch, to make the jar shape and you can buy the shaker domes which you just peel and stick. Definitely recommended if you have always wanted to try a shaker card, but are a bit nervous about it.
