Lostinpaper - Gerda Steiner Designs - Go Wild - Moody Unicorns (card video) 1

I’m back as Guest Designer for Gerda Steiner Designs and thrilled to be here again with TWO videos to share.  I think you are going to adore these fun new Party Animals as much as me, I think my fave is that suave Lion (and I have a card to share featuring him coming up in the future so stay tuned for that).

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

This second card is very special as it is a sneak peek of a set that is yet to be released called ‘Go Wild’.  I have a video showing you how it came together.

Then I just had to make some shaker tags with the new Handmade Tags stamp set and co-ordinating dies.  I did also decide to add some of the new Simple Fruits, and aren’t they fun too!

Video : Cards 4 Men – Make it Fun!

Most men I know (except my husband, who obviously knows better) don’t spend a lot of time perusing the birthday card that is given to them, so a great combination that works every time is to keep it CAS and to keep it fun!  These Grumplings from Taylored Expressions fit the bill perfectly…

Video : 30 Day Coloring Challenge Blog Hop with Altenew!

lostinpaper-altenew-30-day-color-challenge-2017-card-video-1-copy

challenge_graphic-mar16_plain-650-copy-1I am so excited to be taking part in Kathy Racoosin’s 30 Day Coloring Challenge with Altenew.  Please visit the Altenew Blog to learn more about The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge blog hop and leave a comment on the Altenew Blog for a chance to win a giveaway, there are more Prize deets below.

For my card I thought it would be fun to change it up a bit and use a totally fun technique that I love to do but rarely remember which is to colour directly onto design or patterned paper.
