 Hi There,

I'm late to the world of foiling to be honest I wasn't sure weather  to invest in the whole foiling system would it be something I would enjoy. I had loved the toner and Deco Foils but this seem a different ball game. After a real delay, I was lucky enough to get a Gemini from a friend, at a great price. As she was selling off her sister's craft stuff as unfortunately she had gone in to a home. So the foil Press seemed the way to go. so I purchased it and there it sat. months and months later, I had brought a few foiling dies but still it sat. 

Until I fell in love with the Balloon Arch  from Honey Bee Stamps.

So how did I get on. Seriously I'm hooked. Follow my method to see how it went.
