A new addition to the McGill Team and a Giveaway...

I would like to introduce you to Cristal Hobbs aka Pinky.


Cristal is an amazing paper artist and one that enjoys thinking outside the box and loves to try new things.  Her love and passion for crafting is one of the things that I admire most about her.  I am thrilled that she said yes to joining the McGill Design team as I know you are just going to love her work, videos and tutorials.  With that said I would love to share with you a card she created featuring the June Flower of the month.

With the Rose being our June flower of the month we thought it would be fun to give away the punches that create the Floral Rose.  All you have to do is leave a comment on any or all the posts from now until Midnight June 28th letting us know what you thought of our projects from now till then.  The more comments you leave the more times you will be entered into the drawing.  So comment every day for more chances to win.  Also if you are a follower of our blog or facebook let us know and we will enter you in for each site you follow us on.  Plus If you follow our designers blogs let us know who and we will enter you in for each designer you follow.  We will draw a lucky winner on the morning of June 29th and announce it on the blog.  

As Always we would love to see what you are creating with any of our McGill Paper Punches so be sure to leave us a comment with a direct link to your project.

Till next time, Happy Crafting
