Changing Shape

Framelits: A Gate-Fold Card Tutorial VIDEO

HOLY COW! I *seriously* underestimated the time it would take to make (and edit!) a video tutorial!I have been reluctant about starting videos because I knew they would take time…I just had no idea HOW MUCH time they would take :p

Now my complaining is out of the way, I am pretty pleased with it. Like having a baby: Perhaps the amount you love them is commensurate in some way to the amount of pain you go through to bring them into (and keep them in) the world!!

Before the tutorial, let me show you the superbly adorable and infinitely superior cards I created…no need to organize a parade…a simple kind comment will suffice 🙂

Without further ado, I present unto you my first-born video tutorial!

Whew! I feel like I may need nine months of recovery before I try another one…or maybe I just need to hire someone who can edit video and do graphic design for me…

In other news, I had a total mother PAYBACK yesterday with my eldest son! It was such a beautiful day to hear him say, “My mom is always right” and tell me how blessed he feels. Those moments are worth everything we went through to hear it! Life is good 🙂

Oh Hello

When was the last time you sent a card to a friend “Just Because”? Getting a hand-stamped card in your mailbox makes you feel so loved! Who do you know that needs one of these cards to brighten their day?

I am really having fun with the Label Collection Framelits (see how to cut the edge of your card in this tutorial) and this time I paired it with the new Borders plate for the Simply Scored to create the raised edge! And can you see the paper-pierced scallop border peeking out from the inside panel? Yep, I pretty much love everything about this card and hope that the friend that gets it loves it too.

Actually, I can think of a few people who need one, so I’ll have to make a few more to spread the joy!
