YouTube Tuesday – Chalky ATCs

Hi there,

Thanks for popping in.

Can it really be Tuesday already?

Do you remember a few months back I mentioned some ideas for new Designer Papers inspired by our upcoming holiday to Hawaii?

Well on Friday we are off, off, off on our jollydays and it can’t come soon enough. The past 6 months have been pretty crazy.

Rather than spend the past few evenings working out what to pack (they do have shops in Hawaii afterall) I have spent the time playing with lots of alcohol…………….
inks and yupo paper!

Whilst we’re away, the team at the office will transform them into 8×8 paper pads and 5×7 petite card toppers so that when we get back, they will be ready to launch.

When it was my birthday back in March, we were setting up at the NEC, not really a great place to celebrate. Then, to add insult to injury, we failed to get tickets for Glastonbury. So I booked this holiday. Mmmm. let me consider…. Glastonbury or Hawaii…

It is going to be a real family event. Happy days.

With it being a holiday, I am switching off. Proper like.

Paul will be taking over the reigns and keeping you entertained, and no doubt will be getting into trouble!

But before I go, I shall hand you over to the Super Sam for another great tutorial…………………


Over and out !

Love & Hugs
