Apologies for being absent for so long, things have been rather busy!
Earlier this year, I entered the Cardmaker of the Year 2021 competition run by Practical Publishing and Craftworld. I made one of my see through spinning shaker cards, a floral layered card and a 3d floral shadowbox picture.
I was really chuffed with my entries, but didn't think for one minute that I would win. But I was wrong!! I received a call from Practical Publishing letting me know I was one of the four winners, and I could have fallen off my chair!
Since the winners were announced, there has been a wonderful array of prizes arriving, dies, stamps, stencils, digital files, paper and card, a Silhouette Portrait machine, a storage unit, adhesives, craft books, subscriptions to The Papercraft Society and Essential Craft Series. So many gorgeous new toys to play with! And on top of all the fabulous prizes, I get to work with the design team on my favourite papercrafting magazines!! So far, I have completed three commissions and I'm working on a fourth, so you will hopefully be seeing some of my work in future issues of Die Cutting Essentials and Simply Cards & Papercraft.
Over the coming months, I plan to make projects with prizes from each sponsor to share with you all. So watch this space, my first project will include dies received from Pinkfresh Studios!
