Retiform Blog Hop




I remember teaching the Retiform technique over 8 years ago at an AC Moore in North Carolina - yikes, that's a long time ago! I haven't really favored the technique and was unsure about today's blog hop...until I saw a video tutorial by Heather Scott about a "Modified Retiform" technique. And that's what I did here - which I love!

Every once in a while there is a card you come across that will knock your socks off and you just have to go back and visit the blog to relook at it. That is the case with Mischelle's card at the start of The Angel Company's blog hop: Savvy Projects Blog. Do yourself a favor and DO NOT MISS this card!! :) Here's a sneak peek...



You have 5 days to play along and there will be some prizes awarded at the end! I tell you, I am having so much fun this week! I know it's going to be a great month and I hope you will find time to play along...If you are unsure of how to do this Retiform technique, there are some great tutorials online at the Savvy Projects Blog to help you get started!
