Craft Room Tours

Cut Out + Keep website have a selection of Craft Room Tours where you can have a look at various workspaces. It's really interesting to see inside other designers spaces, and see how they organise all their tools and materials. 

In my case there is less organisation ... you can read my blog and see photos on Cut Out + Keep at the link below!

Papercut Valentines

This is the actual Valentines card that was given yesterday - the papercutting was quite rushed as only 30 mins spare to make it, and I knew I needed to change the blade on the cutting knife, but nonetheless I was pleased with the result which was based on a design by Rachael Ashe.
