Episode #46

Leslie Benson joined us for a pleasant evening of improvisational paper crafting, and she rocked it! The wheel was a sweetie with its choices, and we had a FUNN evening discussing the definition of bouquet, talking about British television, and making cards that were so very different from each other. Slimline cards have been gaining exposure over the last 6 or so months, and I’ve heard not everyone is comfortable with them. Well, you will get a ton of ideas in the over 50 submissions below!

Thank you, Leslie, for joining us again! You are such a nice and talented part of our paper crafting community who gives so generously to all who follow her. Thank you, CR FUNN fam for being a part of the live, watching the replay, and submitting like crazy! Kiss your beautiful brains!
