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.
These are some card that my daughters made a few weeks ago. Sometimes it's nice to just make a wee card for inside a gift package or just a little note to say I love you.
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!
