Hello everyone and hope you're all having a good week so far. I'm somewhat excited here as I can finally share some very good news with you all.
A little while back I received a mega exciting email from the lovely Nikky Hall of Polka Doodles asking me to take part in making up projects with a gorgeous Christmas kit that she designed for Practical Publishing. The kit consists of papers, stickers, die cuts, a clear stamp set, a gorgeous gingerbread house template and some lovely embellishments. It comes with a magazine jam packed with projects to make with the kit with complete instructions and photos all designed by Nikky, myself and 7 fellow Design Team members.
You will not believe  the number of different things you can make and there are 83 projects in the magazine!!! You can buy it in W H Smith (I saw it in ours today - yippee!!!), Hobby Craft and various other craft outlets.
Here's what to look for:

I'm really pleased to say that my shaped easel card made the front cover and you can see it at the top on the left hand side (many thanks go to Diane Grimshaw for this lovely surprise).
Here are some sneak peeks - more to follow next week!

My article has a homespun theme and all the cards and the gift bag have hessian, raffia and twine etc incorporated on them.

Thanks for looking,
Fliss xx

I am always so excited to see people published as I know myself what a buzz it is to see your artwork in print. To have your artwork validated in such a way is so special.
I couldn't be any happier for you :)
