Video Tutorial: Gel Printed Foldable Mini Album

Welcome back, a new video tutorial today where I played (A LOT!) with my gel print with 3 techniques that I discovered during the #marchprintingchallenge hosted by GelliArts in March on Instagram. I've bought a set of square die last September, 70% discounted, and never used. So it was high time to make something out of it:

This is the minialbum closed:
You can find the new round stencils in my Etsy shop

VideoTutorial: Clutch from a Book and **New Stencils**!!

Welcome back everyone!This a first post of many introducing my new set of stencil: it's been a while I wanted to design a round set so finally is here: 3 stencils inspired by 3 beautiful Italian church's rosette and one inspired by a Sardinian jewel, that I love!
OK, let's start with a new video tutorial, you know I have a soft spot for upcycling and this time I gave a new life to an old book cover. It was meant to hold the minialbum from the #marchprintingchallenge, but then I found out it was too thin, so I made a second smaller and thicker one (I confess I like this one more):

 

This is the large book featured in the video:



This is the smaller one with the minialbum inside, it fits perfectly :-)
Fort the inside lining I created two gel prints using the new stencils and fabric flowers
And let me introduce you the new designs, available in my Etsy shop, including a larger size of the 'Tonara' (designed for the 2020 Advent Calendar) and a minitrio:
