Published in Papercraft Essentials No,95


My first and probably last published cards in Papercraft Essentials. A great experience though. even if it was rather frightening. I had a brief to make 7 matching cards Using The Kraftyhands Kew Floral CD. I had to give step by step instructions for each card. I was sure I would miss something out.
Thanks go to the boys at Kraftyhands Mike and Ian, for there trust in me to get this right and for their proof reading and adjusting anything I missed.
Yes you have seen the cards before, as they have been on my blog and on Create and Craft TV.
That was all agreed beforehand.
Thank you for looking and I do hope those of you who bought this CD, enjoy it as much as I did and still do.
Watch out for the guys tomorrow, on Create and Craft, Craft Clinic, at 11am.
