Almost August. The steam has returned. Although the last few days were grand. Hot but dry. Visitors over the weekend, but no stress really. Just faced what was in front of me without thinking about time. There is so much...

Die Cutting for Beginners – Blog Hop + GIVEAWAY!

I AM a Self Confessed die cutting NOOB. Yup, I said it.
