I have been published!!

Kia Ora and Welcome Back

Today I am so excited to announce that I have had three cards published in the Australian Cardmaking, Stamping and Papercraft Magazine.

Here are the original cards:

It is such a thrill to see your work in a publication and acknowledgement of all the hard work that I have put into my creative journey.   I couldn’t have done this without the amazing products from Heartfelt Creations and the support and encouragement I have had being a part of the Heartfelt Creations Design Team.

If you don’t try you don’t achieve!

Happy Crafting
