Tags & Pan Pastels


I thought I would share these two tags I made for the shop using Pan Pastels and stamps from Dylusions. The Pan Pastels give a very smooth surface to stamp onto and I love being able to mix the colours very easily. I used the Picket Fence Distress Markers to add a border and the heart was made from UTEE.

Christmas Decoration

This is a lovely and very simply decoration that anyone who can fold a piece of paper can make! If you've ever done any teabag folding then you won't have any problems at all. The one tip I would give would be to use thin paper and it helps if it is double sided too. I will pop a tutorial page up so you can all have a go in the next few days, I would love to see your results either email a pic or bring into the shop for us to see.
