  1. I ordered the Hello bundle before I saw your video. I was hesitant to order it but decided I could get a lot of use from it. Now that I’ve watched your video I can hardly wait for it to arrive. I’ve had Perfect Pearls for years but never really used them. They will definitely be getting used now. In addition to the way you used them with the Hello Bundle, I love the look using the lift technique with stamps. Your daffodil card is amazing. Thanks once again for showing me new techniques and inspiring me to use older supplies!
