birthday’s SNEAK UP! isn’t it crazy! i’ll remember birthday and then think, ‘oh, it’s a month away’… and then the day of, i am freaking out and kicking myself for not just taking care of being thoughtful when i thought of it! do you have that ever? i am a thoughtfulness-procrastinator; which really just means, not-thoughtful. well, or at least it gets stuck in the thoughts. well, here is something for just such an occassion!
YES… it’s Wednesday, and yet another new episode of ‘Create to Remember’ … my crafty little show on www.mycraftchannel! This week, i wanted to share with you my LOVE for hybrid crafting! by ‘hybrid’ i mean, that this is something that starts as a digital (computer) file, and then you can print it out onto paper, and with a little scissors and glue, WALAA… you have made something from *almost* nothing! FUN!
this card was made from one piece of cardstock that i printed 2 digital files: one front and one on the back! as i mentioned on the show today… the backgrounds, and files that i used on this card came from a collection called “winter wonderland” that i designed with Jessica Sprague. You can check out the whole collection HERE, it’s such a versitile collection! i love it!
on today’s show you will see me combine some simple items you will have avail like a toothpick and string… and foam dots
make sure that you watch the video so you can check out my fun little tips and techniques to create this card including how i like to use the fiscars circle templates and even some GLAM by Tattered Angels for making this cute yummy bow! (above)
you’ll see me work with this cutter and template from fiskars (i swear by it!)
those that took the very first “Mouse, Paper, Scissors” class with Jessica Sprague and I at www.jessicasprague.com last year will recognize this template… it’s such a fun one! here’s what the front and back will look like when you cut it all out.
i love how this turned out! be sure to print onto white CARDSTOCK!
have fun making something from (almost) nothing! pass it on!!
ps: i mention on the video that i have something special from www.jessicasprague.com for my viewers… check back for more info! it’s coming! xoxo
