Not because I felt the packaging was rubbish or because I didn't like it - but because I felt I could make my own. However, Stampin' Up! then decided to release cute packaging like these jars that form… Continue reading Mini Chocolate Jars

Layered cards are my new "go to" when I hit a crafty block, you don't need much inspiration around you to make one.
