Using Scraps & Covering Up Mistakes

Nigezza Creates aka Gez, Independent Stampin' Up® Demonstrator 


Thank you for visiting my blog, I really do appreciate it and hope you like the project and will take a look at the video tutorial as well.  You may remember from my Pootler Swaps video that I had some left over strips of the hand stamped card stock? Well I decided to make a card, all was going well then I smudged the stamping! So had to be creative to cover the smudges up and then I made the original card again. I am actually very pleased with both cards. Just goes to show there are no mistakes in crafting and that a butterfly really can fix most errors!
