Another Mini Album-Video

It has been a crazy few days. My Flip HD is out for repairs :( Luckily I have a back-up camcorder. I've got a crazy work schedule this week and I'm doing my first craft fair Saturday.

I may or may not be back this week with a video. It all depends on how much I can get done over the next few days for the craft fair. I have one more album to make and lots of little things that need to get done.

Here is a video of one of the albums I made for the fair. Pink, girlie colors are not me, so I found this to be a little hard to do, but I love how it came out.

Wild Card Series #16-Swoop and Tied-up Cards

Here is #16 in the Wild Card Series. We are working our way through this entire cartridge.

Here are a few questions answered....

1. What cards should we cut first, before the envelope using the fit-to-page feature?
Rule of thumb is Trifold cards should be cut first. They are longer and need more space on your cardstock. Here is a list of the cards that we have done so far that should be cut using the fit to page feature, before you cut the envelope.
Scallop Card: Page 32
Invite Card: Page 36
Booklet Card: Page 38
Tied Up Card: Page 44

2. Can you use the original (baby bug) Cricut with the Wild Card cartridge?
Yes, just keep in mind that the cards will be much smaller than what I'm showing. The next video will feature a card cut using 6x12.

3. Why aren't you posting pictures of your completed card?
I haven't been posting pictures of my completed cards for 2 reasons. 1. I'm still learning how to use the Mac and the Iphoto software. I promise to get to it soon and start posting pics again. 2. I'm trying to make as many of these videos as quickly as I can, so I can start preparing for my guest design spot on Christmas with the Cricut in November.

4. Will you show how to use other cartridge?
Of course, but probably not like what I'm doing with the Wild Card series. My plan is to feature a cartridge every week with 2 videos each week. Send me your emails and comments about what cartridges you want me to feature and what it is you have a question on. I will start a list and work from there. That is if I have the cartridge.

Now here is you video for today:

Thanks for watching!

Wild Card Series #15 Birthday and Joy Cards

Hi everyone,
I have to say thank you for all the kind emails and comments. Keep them coming, I so enjoy reading them and they also help me when I need to explain something a little further.
Today's video features the birthday and joy cards on pages 40 and 41. They are very simple and I love the icon cut from the birthday card. Very cute.
I had part of the day off from work yesterday and will have some off today, so I devoted the time to filming. However I may take a trip to Michael's today. Sweet dear Lorrie who won my blog candy a few weeks back sent me a gift to M's and I just found on my desk a 50% off coupon that expires tomorrow. Michael's here I come. LOL

For those of you waiting or thinking about getting a Gypsy, check out Obsessed With Scrapbooking...Joy has some great videos on how to use the Gypsy. I can't wait for mine to get here. I heard that HSN will release the Gypsy on the 24th and Michael's will begin selling soon.


I forgot yesterday to post the link to the other WCS videos, click HERE if you would like to go back and watch older episodes.

Have a great Friday.

Wild Card Series #13 Square Card and Trifold

Good Day All,
Well here is episode #13 in the Wild Card Series. Todays video features the square card and the trifold card. It really is much easier if I make two cards in one episode. I have so many things I want to work on and share either in pictures or video, so I'm trying to speed up the WCS by including 2 cards per episode.

I've been working on my first mini album, and I'm having a blast. I'll post pictures whenever I get it done.
Here is episode #13:

Have a great day and happy crafting!

Wild Card Series #11-Owl Card

Happy Friday,
This makes #11. Isn't this owl cute?

I'm gonna try to start doubling up the videos, so you might start seeing two videos every once in a while. I'm gonna work really hard this weekend on getting as many of these filmed as I can. I'm not really putting much effort into how I decorate them, the main purpose is to show you how to put them together.
Now here is your video:

Have a great friday!

Wild Card Video Series #10-

Hi All,
Here is #10 in the series. I'm still learning about the Mac and I haven't quite mastered getting photo's uploaded. I'll mess with it more this weekend, but for now I'm using my laptop for photo's.

Today's video is the leaf card and I love how this one came out. I used Georgia Pacific white cardstock for the envelope. Bazzil green CS for the base, Martha Stewart fall paper from last year, and some stitched ribbon.

Fall Card

Good Day All,
I hope you had a great Labor Day weekend. We went to the Italian Festival that is held here every Labor Day Weekend. We had so much fun. Other than that we stayed home and relaxed this weekend. I'm still learning about me new Mac, but it's so much fun. I hope to get another Wild Card video done tonight. However for some reason last night I decided my craftroom need to be reorganized and now everything is all over the place. Why didn't I decide to do that on Saturday? anyway...
For today's card, I used Stampin' Up! black cardstock for the base, and the pattern paper is from My Mind Eye, Night Light collection. I used a Cuttlebug pumpkin folder, as well as some green ribbon from The Paper Studio. Another added touch is my dear friend TeriB sent me some cork sheets. I used my Fiskar scallop edge punch on the cork and it cut like butter. Have a good week.

Wild Card Video Series #9-Argyle Card

I'm so happy!!!
I did have a little technical problem first loading onto You Tube from the Mac, but we figured it out. At least it didn't have anything to do with software.

Here is the 9th episode of the Wild Card Series.
