3d Wedding Cake and one layout to start April off with

This month we ask the DT to provide tutorials using some of our products that my2angels has in store - with such a talented DT we have some great tutorials to share with you from them and as always some fantastic layouts.

Our first tutorial is from Tracey .. how life-like does is this 3D wedding cake card look? Just by changing the ribbon and charm you can adjust it to suit a birthday card as well.

You can find all the instructions in our resource section (excuse the dust as its currently being redecorated).

Our guest Designer for April is Anne Paterson, who I got to meet in real life last month - it was great to finally put a real face to the photo and email buddy.

Anne does the most beautiful stitching and fantastic clean line layouts. You can see all her creations on her blog here

beautiful inspiration ladies. There was one thing i saw once and didnt save...doh....about getting rid of those crappy backgrounds, not using photo shop or anything like that. i think it was using alcohol inks. It looked really cool
