Congratulations Card

Today I am going to share a card that I recently made.  However, there is no video for it.  It is the first time I've posted a project in quite awhile.  That means you get to see it first.


For this card, I pulled a couple of "oldie but goodie" stamp sets.  When I was cleaning out my craft room, there was no way that I was going to clean out my Tim Holtz stamps.  This old car from "The Journey" set is one that I have used for masculine cards many times and it fit the bill perfectly for this retirement card for my boss.

I also used the following items -
Ruby and Fern from the Enchantment Cardstock pack found here.
"Just to Say" retired stamp set from Close To My Heart
Patterned paper from the Enchantment Fundamentals pack found here.
Archival black ink
Foam tape

This ended up being a pretty simple project but the color combination was perfect.  Come back soon for some more projects and tips.

Shimmer Brush How-To

Have you seen that Close To My Heart now has 2 different shimmer pens available?  Shimmer brushes are a great way to add a little sparkle to any paper crafting project.  However, it might be a bit confusing when you first pull it out of the package to use it.  Here's a video that will walk you through the process.  Then head here to get your own gold shimmer brush or here to get a clear one.

Happy 2017

It's hard to believe that it is already a new year.  The last couple of month's have been so busy that I had little time to spend in the craft room or making videos.  I sat down today and shot 3 videos.  In the process of uploading and editing, I found two more that I had shot in December and never posted.  I am going to post 2 videos below.  The other 2 will be available in the coming days with the 5th one being for one of my clubs.

I am looking forward to all that 2017 holds.  I have made goals and am continuing to work on them. These encompass work, personal, spiritual and crafty.  In the coming months, you will see some of them.

In the meantime, please enjoy these videos.

Daily December Journaling

Christmas is fast approaching and I want to really document it well this year.  Though I had heard of Ali Edwards' December Daily a couple of years ago, I really didn't know what it was.  Last year as I learned a little more, I put together a little (and simple) album.  This year, I am ready to give it a try. 

This video gives more information and it also talks about a little giveaway that I'm doing on YouTube.  Be sure to watch it for a chance to win.  My current plan is to update you weekly on my progress so come back soon to see how it is coming together.
