We all love Poppy! July 31, 2016 07:10 1 Comment

Yesterday we had crafty celebrity Poppy Chancellor join us for our montly Coffee and Craft session and we were blown away by her! No only was she incredibly generous in giving away all the trade secrets of being a pro-crafter and author, but she was funny, inspiring and adorable.

Wonderful Poppy Chancellor

We had a full house of well over 20 people squished into every corner to see Poppy as she shared some of her favourite designs, tons of top tips on paper cutting and showed us her new book. It's not out until September so we've had first peak of it. Stuffed with designs and templates with coloured papers included, lots of us went and pre-ordered on Amazon

After her chat and Q&A session, we all had a go at some paper cutting. As we only had half an hour for cutting, we worked on some quick Chinese animals and stuck them on to cards, using Poppy's favourite foam pads to show off the 3D nature of the designs.

Poppy likes to use foam pads or cigarette filters to mount papercuts so you can see the 3D nature of them.
