    Soo glad your show was postponed the other week,as I’m off work all next week so will be able to watch your show (better check my bank balance) :). The packaging looks great and with your potato head (your words, not mine lol although it’s a lovely potato head) it is instantly recognisable. I think Foiling is quite addictive as you can turn a plain piece of card into something quite special for any occasion and the results look really professional. Good luck for next week John, although somehow I don’t think you’ll need it . Kath x

    Hi John, these are AMAZING. Soooo chuffed for you that you got to design these. Been waiting patiently for the show to air. Got a bit too impatient and bought 2 of these in the last week or so, opps. Waiting for these to be delivered and can’t wait to try them. Have to admit. I’ve owned the Go Press and Foil a while now, but not yet had ago. It’s your designs that have encouraged me to buy and have a go. Good luck next week, you’ll be awesome as always and I know I’ll learn loads. Keep smiling and good luck everyone. xx

      I like foiling because it adds another dimension to my cards and projects as well as looking professional. I like that it works well with mixed media projects and I also love foiling on fabric especially Japanese silk. It’s a alrounder tool. Congratulations John will look forward to the show.
