  • Crate Paper Maggie Holmes 6×6 paper stack
  • Stampin Up Circle die

I’m starting a new feature on my blog tomorrow ….. Sunday’s will now be known as “Shabby Sunday”

Each Sunday I will create one thing, it could be a card or an embelishment, a mini book, a tag, altering item’s etc…. Β just all things shabby πŸ™‚

It seems like a long time since I made anything shabby chic, and this is my way of getting back to doing what I love and sharing it here on my blog.

It will be purely blog posts at the moment, however, I do hope to record video tutorials and feature these too, and maybe a live Ustream depending on how things go πŸ™‚

See you tomorrow for Shabby Sunday #1
