We R Memory Keeper Tab Punch Board Video

{Supplies are listed below in the thumbnails at the end of the blog post}

Hello Everyone,
Happy Friday! Are you ready for the weekend? What are your crafty plans this weekend?
I'm going to get all my usual weekend chores done quickly and hitting the craft room on Sunday. It's supposed to be a rainy day and I really want to spend the day playing with all these ideas I have brewing around in my head. There are so many things I want to try out.
One big thing I want to work on is updating my tabs for my stamp and die storage. I did a video on this a while back and it's still the same, I just want to change out the colored dividers.

Hello Fall

Hello Everyone and Happy Friday,

Who loves Paper Trey Ink Stamps? I do, I do!
I just got my order last week and had to head out for a conference the first 1/2 of this week. I thought about these stamps the whole time. I couldn't wait to get home and color.

I jumped right into the Autumn Scarecrow set and whipped out my Prisma pencils first thing  yesterday morning. I had so much fun with this one. I did color his jacket red at first, but decided to do something a little different.

Here is today's video. I'll post all the insructions and supplies below the video.

Watch Below | Watch on You Tube

Here are the instructions:
I started with a piece of 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" white cardstock and stamped the scarecrow in black ink. Using my Prisma Markers, I colored in my image and then stamped the sentiment. Using some wonky oval dies, I die cut the scarecrow with the largest die in the set, and then used some pattern paper with an oval the next size down.  With another piece of pattern paper, I trimmed it down to 4" x 5-1/4" and matted that on my card base (4-1/2" x 5-1/2"). After layering my stamped image and the pattern paper, I added a twine bow and some crystal drops.

Here are the supplies I used to make today's card.

Don't forget if you have suggestions for videos, please use the link above or on the side of the page.
Have a great weekend everyone.

Cricut Cuttlebug V.3

Hi Everyone

I'm so excited to be back making videos. I had so much fun setting up my equipment and getting ready to film. It took me a day or two to film because I didn't want the excitement of prepping to end. hehe.

Thank you so much for the kind words and for leaving video requests. Your support means the world to me.

Let's start off with an updated tutorial on the Cricut Cuttlebug. I did a video many years ago on the different types of dies you can use with your machine, and it's one of my most popular videos to date.
One of the biggest comments I get is that their Cuttlebug didn't come with a C plate. Version 3 doesn't either, but it does come with a rubber mat that, when you put it together with an B plate, you have a C plate. Oh Yes! it's totally true.

I know what you're going to ask...Do you like the Cuttlebug better than a Big Shot? I think of them as my children (I know what your thinking, Christina, you only have one child, but I count Scott as a big kid, plus the two cats and our dog) and love them equally. They both have great qualities.

Let's jump into the video and I'll tell you more further down...

One of the biggest features I love about the Cuttlebug is the fact it takes up less overall space in my crafting area. It's tucks nicely onto a shelf or can sit right on my desk. I absolutely love the color. Yep I'm a sucker for cute colored crafting tools, and I really like how it suctions to my desk while I'm cranking away cutting and embossing.

 Here are the supplies featured in today's video.  

I hope you enjoyed today's video. See you back here really soon.
Lots of hugs

I have a favor to ask...

Hi All,
I'm super excited to be coming back to crafting. It's been a few months and I'm really happy and excited about crafting and making videos again.  I think I needed to take a few months off. I was starting to stress over getting things done and, with my dad passing last November, I just needed a moment. I hope you understand.

I have been working on the blog the past few days; updating it and getting it ready for my return. I hope you like the new style. I've added a few new links. My About Me page has been updated. I also added a FAQ page and a list of my favorites (work in progress).  

I have a lot of ideas of what I want to do here on the blog, and I already started by updating the style, but I need some help from you. I've added a Request a Video link at the top of the blog. I would love for you to request videos idea; projects, tutorials, series, whatever paper crafting idea you might want to see. 

You could also fill out this form here too.

I have a few video ideas already brewing and plan to work a bit this week on getting them filmed. Stay Tuned for those.

I've really missed you all
Lots of love to you all,
