Envelope Photo Wallet

Hi Everyone!

Yesterday’s workshop at Stampers Grove in Edinburgh was fun and a good time was had by all making their Photo Wallets.

I made one along with all the lovely ladies who came to the workshop.. it was a lovely surprise to see Helen again, my crafty friend from Kelso. ย  ย I met Helen when I used to demo crafty stuff at the garden centre down there and she now comes all the way up to Edinburgh to Stampers Grove workshops ๐Ÿ™‚

Our photo wallets were constructed from envelopes and we used a variety of mediums, including Brusho Crystal Coloursย  to achieve our finished projects
