Posted: Wednesday, June 9th, 2021 @ 10:44 am in Projects | No Comments »

My goal today was to play with the new Stampin’ Up! Soft Pastels and do some #simplestamping.  I’ve been a demonstrator 22 years – long enough to miss the pastels we used to have.  I’m happy to have pastel chalks back in our coloring repertoire.  I had fun remembering some of our old techniques and […]
