Video-Anniversary Card

It's my brother and sister-in-law anniversary this week and as usual I waited until the very last minute to make a card. Hope you enjoy today's video. I'm a little disappointed on how the pictures turned out for this one. I think I may have forgotten to hit the white balance button on my camera.

Happy Crafting.

Ribbon Storage

I had a few people ask me how I store my ribbon on the clothes pins. I can't take credit for this idea, I found it on another website and thought it was genius. I did this a few months back and just keep up with them as I buy new ribbons.

Here's a video on how to store your ribbon. Enjoy.

Episode #7-Cricut Pillow Box

I had the day off of work today, hubby is working and our son is at school. I'm home alone. So I thought I would get ahead on some videos and have them ready to go.

I'm not sure where I got the paper, but I used the Wedding Solution Cartridge from Cricut cut at 5" to make the pillow box and the same cartridge to cut the tag at 2". Enjoy

Happy Crafting!

Episode #6-Gift Bag

This morning before I got my son up and ready for school and off to work myself I made this bag using Tags, Bags, boxes and more from the Cricut. I already posted a picture of it this morning but I had time tonight to make and edit the video. I didn't think I would have time to get anything done this week. I'm already getting ready to work on another video tonight.

Happy Crafting!

Episode #3 Gift Card-Card

Today's video is a tuturial on how to make this cute gift card-card. The card measure 4-1/4x5-1/2 so it will fit into a standard greeting card envelope.

Funny video story. The first time I started to tape this episode, I was just starting to stamp the front of the card and the camera fell over and smacked me right in the face. Ouch. Luckily I use a Flip camera and not something bigger.

To make this card I used:

5-1/2 x 12 Kraft Cardstock
Puns from the Past stamp set (SU # 111676)
Bitty Birthday Stamp Set (SU# 110994)
Close to Cocoa Stamp Pad (SU #103139)
Word Window Punch (SU #105090)
Whisper White Cardstock (SU #100730)
Old Olive Carstock (SU #103063)
Dimensionals (SU #104430)You can order any of these items on my Stampin Up website. To get there click here.

My Little Mailbox

This was so much fun to make. The mailbox is from the dollar spot at Target and the little hearts I cut out with the Cricut (doodlecharms cart). I can't wait to make more for my nieces for Valentine's day.

This one will go to my son's teacher.

Thanks for looking
