IDEAS Blog Hop - "We're Cut Out to be Friends"

Welcome to our December IDEAS Tutorial Blog Hop!  This month our theme is "We're Cut Out to be Friends". Our global team is from Australia, Europe, Canada and the United States.  Join me to hop to each designers' blog for sneak peeks of our projects.  The collage below has a tiny peek of each designers' project!

Our Tutorial has 13 demonstrator designers with over 26+ projects from various countries around the world. The December 2023 IDEAS Tutorial Bundle has detailed instructions, colour photography, and tips.  My projects features the Translucent Florals Bundle.  

Here is a sneak peek of my project, all of the supplies and details for my projects are in our tutorial bundle.

My card is exclusive to the Tutorial Bundle, so if you want to see it, you have to get your hands on the tutorial.  Check below for another card I made using the Translucent Florals Bundle and coordinating Delightful Florals Designer Series Paper.

I have three options for you to get the tutorial:
