I really love all four sets this year – can't wait to have a play and share them with you.
This is a fun little bag that I've used quite a bit with my daughters. It's just the right size for a voucher, a piece of jewelry, small cards, or chocolate!
I guess it's time to ease back into "normal" life. . . but I've sure had a good time doing the unordinary the last three or four weeks. In 2010, I will take time to do more of the things I never make time to do, but should. I've even signed up for a fortnightly Women's Enrichment Course, which I am very much looking for to this year.
Let's start out 2010 with a video tutorial. Today we have a new camera-woman, my nine year old daughter, Kjristi. She did quite well.
We've demonstrated for you here a very basic tutorial on the new Circle Scissors, available in the Summer Mini. See the tins I altered using the circle scissors here. I intend to take this around and have some hands-on, but in the meantime, enjoy this introduction.
Circle Scissors Plus $65.50
Replacement Blades (3) $8.95
Glass Mat $44.95
But when making a smaller than C6 card, you need a smaller envelope to fit. Now, it's really not hard to make an envelope from scratch, but here's a super-duper quick way to whip one up. And bonus – the kids can do it themselves, too.
I made this card up as a swap earlier in the month, and I was quite tickled with how cute they turned out. Actually, I did the cutting and punching and stamping. Madeleine did all the rest. I feel guilty not mentioning her when she's done a fair portion of the effort!
And what a little treasure this image is – such a cutie! It's found in the Window Dressing Hostess set. Yes, you have to have a fairly big workshop to get one of those for FREE or use a Purchase Punch Card – email me to send you one.
The chunky glitter is so cool! It really is clear with a few bits of glitter that refract the light, but I see that in the photo, the camera caught some of the "chunks" and they are showing up coloured. That's kind of neat, too.
Tomorrow I'll post another, slightly more complex, version of this card.
Watch the video below to see how to make the framed window in the card!

Thank you to all who stopped in and said hello during Senz this last weekend! And some of you I missed, but you left me little goodies behind – you know who you are!
During a couple of my classes, we learned how to tie a neat knot. You all got it during class but here's a quick video so you can practice a few more times til you've got it down perfectly.
The Watercolour Wonder Crayons are truly a lot of fun to use; I get them out and always wish I got them out more often!
Everyone's projects turn out differently because we not only colour it in differently, but also all use a different amount of water and pressure. See the video for more on this one way to acheive colour variation in your images.

Colours: Old Olive, Elegant Eggplant, Pale Plum, Chocolate Chip
Other: Chocolate Chip Ribbon, 3/4 circle punch
