We're getting the hang of this Zoom and everyone was creating at their best this month with their dotty dragonflies - which were taken over by butterflies!

Not only that you can use any embellishments or die cuts you like - I love the use of last month's butterfly dies for a decorative cutout!

And when we say 'use this piece in another project' we don't always see the results - this clever and madly productive class participant found the perfect embossing folder in their stash and went to town with the cutout from the acetate card - here's the 14 results!
