Easy Peasy Patterned Paper! Where has the Year Gone! Christmas 2014 (video).

Today’s video is about using my paper stash, no hoarding allowed!   This is such an easy card to make multiples of and a great way to use your scraps too.  Just set up a little production line and even the kids could help!  Love love love using those sweet papers…  now, can I go and buy some more?

This card is totally different to my original ‘mind’s eye’ design, but sometimes when the brights take you, ya just gotta go with it.  And I’m so proud of myself, I made my own paper bow!

Time for Graffiti at Cards4Men (video)!

One of my all time faves when it comes to masculine cards is the Graffiti technique.  It may be because I get to make a real mess and join up heaps of different stamps sets (which I love to do).  Hope you are having fun with this mini series, I know I’m having a blast making it!

Merci Merci Merci – Ombre publication.

Hey there how’s it going?  I’m having a wonderful weekend, spending some QT with my husband.  We had a lovely lunch at a cafe by the sea and were lucky enough to see some whales heading north, they were so close to shore, maybe it’s because there were no waves in sight…

Anyhow, I’ve been busy working in the background and will have heaps more for you real soon but til then my share for today is a publication where the call was ‘ombre’, I took the cheats way out and let the paper do all the work, oh and of course these fabulous Avery Elle stamps helped!

Hello – Other Supplies:

Birthday Wishes (video)!

Back with a video today using some matching dies and stamps, aren’t these just the best!  I tend to buy dies that I think I can use for a dual purpose, now don’t get me wrong I would love to own a die for every stamp that I have, wouldn’t that be cool, but it’s just not practical, but I do love that these flower dies could be used independently , wouldn’t they look great cut out in patterned papers…  in fact I think I might just do some now lol.

I was inspired to make this card by this amazing creation from Alice Wertz, all I can say is WOW!

You can see my video here or Watch it at Youtube.

Watercolour Sympathy for Scrapbook Boutique (video)!

Today I have a video tutorial for Scrapbook Boutique showing how easy it is to use Distress Markers to create a watercolour look.  Also, still loving the gold over here, especially the Delicata…..      total yumminess!  

A special thanks to Sandy for letting me know that there was a problem with the video at youtube, all seems to be fine now (fingers crossed, this is where I wish I wasn’t such a technophobe).
