#techniquethursday - flashback

What do you do when you've got no time to craft... you dream about crafting.  I woke up with ideas in my mind and running late to get ready for work.  Bring on the weekend and some time to play!  I'm hoping it will be the start of a good crafting run on the lead up to Christmas.  In the mean time here's the most recent #techniquethursday posts I've done.  Follow the links for all the tips and tricks.

Layered Ink - for a new way to use your stamp pads.

Using frames to create a focal point on your card.

Have you got any techniques you'd like to learn?  Leave me a message and I'll try to get some tutorials ready for future #techniquethursday posts.
Happy crafting.

Happy crafting

I know I say this every time I do a flashback - but I love looking back on some of what I've done.  Sometimes I cringe because of how amateur things look.  Sometimes I smile because I realise how far I've come - and hey we learn from our mistakes.  And sometimes I get inspired all over again and do a bit of a…
