Flower Pop-Up Tutorial
Today I want to show how to do pop-up flower. I decided to make magic album for my little daughter and Dreamland collection is perfect for this. The flower is a part of this album.
I cut out characters from Dreamland paper.”

DIY Ink Pad Storage – #G45Box
“Hi everyone! I made an ink pad storage for the #G45Box challenge this month. It’s easy to keep my ink pads in such way.
Graphic 45 12×12 chipboard sheets are perfect for horizontal septums.
My storage box has some space on top for blending tools and other stuff.”
