New Video Tutorial and Challenge #85 Reminder

Welcome everyone, today is the Day of the Dead celebrations and I have put together a video showing my Dia de los muertos Gato journal page come together, using my cat stamp and templates...

Hope you like them, I've had to divide them into two parts and speed up quite a bit... coming to realise I am a very slow crafter, no wonder my memory card fills up super quick which is why the end of the filming is missing, but I pretty much just gave the background a wash with the wonderful neocolor ii yummy sticks.






Now I just had to show you this stunning piece by our very talented Tracey...
She has put together a beautiful step by step for you too... please visit her HERE to be super inspired.

There is still plenty of time to join in with this fortnights Picture inspired Paperbabe Stamps challenge over HERE.

Enjoy a wonderfully creative weekend!
HuGs Kim & the Team x
