The Tool Bench card... Part 3 with Nailed It & Perfect Mix...

And the third in the trio... a bit simpler than the other two shared over the last 2 days to create... but definitely one to wow the men in your life...

Edited to Add.... Tutorial now available. Click here for the details...

And funnily enough... this is the one that now inspires the most new creative ideas in my head!! So I think you will be seeing another series (or 10) sometime in the future... but a break from creating these is required to schedule a few new private classes, sort out the ordered kits & write up the tutorial!! So bear with me...
But fear not... I have plenty of other Men's makes to share with you in the meantime!!! So please keep coming back...

And my favourite details!! Oh the drill of course.... care of the out-of-stock Perfect Mix again... who knew how much I would end up using this set.... and the simply die cut bench ruler... though unfortunately the dies are now out of stock in Europe/probably Rest of World...
Though the Nailed It tools do do the main job for the tools you need most... and stamps still available... in clear mount... and wood mount...

And yes... the card does fold flat for mailing...
So I hope you have liked my series this weekend... though I do already feel that a lot of you have....!

I will be providing "Class in the Mail kits of the Trio including tutorial " - so please email me here asap but by the end of Tuesday 16th May latest if you are interested in one of these... as the Urban Underground papers are out of stock in the UK so I will only be able to provide from the packs I have ... nice to share! But a complication for me to work through/price up depending on how many people are interested... It may have to end up as a First Come, First Served... Edited to Add: I have checked and unfortunately I will not be able to provide the Class Kits in the Mail outside of the 5 European territories...

I will also be making tutorials available to purchase for the 3 cards in this series... hopefully by the end of next week...

Though for UK only... the Trio of tutorials 
will be sent automatically to my downline team members and can be obtained for free for May class attendees... OR ... for everyone else...  free with an online order of £20+  .... click here for my Online Shop. Make sure you can see my name (Amanda Bates) at the top right of the screen... and enter the current Host Code VQTSBUDV where prompted...
