Good News Candy

This is a sticky. Please scroll down for newer posts.

Well stab me with a pokey tool and colour me with copics!
I am on the Design Team of Papercraft Essentials magazine. Never in a million years did I think this would happen to me, it's a dream come true.




So here I am with my first commission on pages
72 and 73 of issue 64. On the shelves now.




It all started when my boss Jacqui at Simply Create sent me a small box with my November DT kit. I altered it into a holder for Christmas cocktail recipe cards. It was spotted by the editor of the mag and I was commissioned to make something similar.

So to celebrate I have put together a little bit of candy. Max & Whiskers paper pack by Basic Grey, some twine and, of course, a few buttons. The usual sort of thing applies, leave me a comment, spread the word on your own blog and if you like what you see become a follower.

The candy will close at midday Sunday 20th February.
