I showed the girls how to use a score board, paper trimmer, punches, how to make an insert plus lots lots more.

This Gardening themed card is showing how to size matting layers
we have used a selection of garden embelishments from Cara Crafts

This Wedding card was showing how to use boarder punches
Matt and layer and decoupage
