Hi Hollowers!

Welcome to the new look Hedgehog Hollow! What do you think of our new logo? You may also have noticed that we are now on a dot com! The new web address is www.thehedgehoghollow.com, don’t worry if you have the old one bookmarked it will automatically redirect you here so you won’t miss a thing but I do suggest you add the new address to your favorites.  Also, if you subscribe to the blog via email that has carried over, if you don’t subscribe but would like to hop to the home page and sign up! You may also get a prompt to sign up for our newsletter, we will be sending the first one very soon, it will have an exclusive giveaway just for subscribers as well as a digital download that is exclusively for the readers of our newsletter!

Now we have all the news (for now) out of the way, I must also quickly remind you that next week is the biggest event on the crafting calendar…Creativation! Mr HH & I are traveling to Phoenix to give you unprecedented VIP access, we have exclusive tours before the show even opens to keep watching the HH YouTube channel and Instagram (those are linked up if you click them) plus we will be posting as much as we can to the blog but social media is super easy for us to get great quality content out to you as it happens so you can live the show from your own home!

Today I have a fab tutorial for you, this was the first video I filmed in my new craft room, I’m so happy here and will have a tour for you soon! I sent this to a recent competition winner, I was so pleased with the result…

I see so many options with this die: gingerbread towns, christmas village, German markets, city skyline, Moroccan theme; plus of course all the different background you could create.  This die is so versatile and would be lovely made into a tea light holder with color acetate behind the windows, my mind is spinning on what to do next! For this one I went with a dusk/night them.  You could easily mixed in some red for a sunset, here is a complete video tutorial…

So easy to build up and the distress paper make blending so easy, for backgrounds like this I do prefer it over Neenah.  What did you think of the new intro and end screens too? Here is a complete supply list for you: (affiliate links used where possible at no cost to you)

Thanks so much for joining me today, I had great fun getting inky with this card.  I am now off to do some more planning for Phoenix, I am mapping out my must see route of stands, plus as I mentioned we have VIP passes to give you behind the scenes early sneak peaks so share our channel with crafty friends! Leave me comment with whose stand you would like us to visit on film and we will try to make as many requests as possible a reality!

Happy Stamping!
