I'm so lucky to know you - Maker Forte


Today's post is a bit of an exciting one for me!  This is my first post a member of the Maker Forte design team...so darn excited about that! And I have also made my first video on YouTube!  Yup...I've started my journey as a YouTube creator and not just someone who spends hours watching it 😂 
If you aren't familiar with Maker Forte they are a fairly new company, that carries a wide range of crafty goodies....stamps, stencils, glitters, colour shifting powders, cardstock, etc.  They do have their own range of products but they also do collaborations with other designers and have products that you can't get anywhere else but with them.  I'm very excited to work with them and the rest of the very talented design team! 

So for my first project as a team member, I thought I would make a card for St Patrick's day, seeing as it is just around the corner. I used pretty much all Maker Forte products for my card except for the adhesives...it was so easy to as they went together so well.  This card is full of shamrocks, shimmer and glitter!  I paired one of their gorgeous holographic glitters with their colour shifting Kaleidoscope powders.....that stuff is pretty awesome!  And all you need to seal the powder, so that it doesn't rub off on your fingers is a light spritz of hairspray or water.

This card was really simple and quick to make....I think it took me a total of 15 mins.  But although it cam together very quickly, it isn't short of that wow factor.....it definitely delivers!  I really hope you will head on over to my YouTube channel and check out my video there, give it a thumbs up and even subscribe.  I hope to have lots more exciting stuff coming!

Thank you so very much for stopping by today and spending a bit of time with me.  I hope you have a wonderful and crafty day. 

Until next time, Michelle 💖
