Last Nights Card Measurements

Ok here are the measurements to the card video I posted last night, 1 correction though is I made the original card 5" x 7" and scored it in half the card on the video is a 3 1/2" x 10" scored at 5", personally I like the 5" x 7" but who knows how you like it ?:) Ok the measurements:

Red Cardstock, 2 3/4" x 5"
Green Cardstock, 2 1/2" x 5"
Small Red Cardstock, 1 1/8" x 1 1/2"
Small Vanilla Cardstock, 1" x 1 3/8

Ok be looking for a new video soon. I am going to be painting my room this week so maybe I will have some order soon and a craft desk again.

Good news and Bad news

Ok well the good news is I have a new video up the bad news is I have no measurements for the card. I told you about my mouse incident well... with that and the moving of my room I lost my sheet of paper for the measurements of the card... I know it is a 5" x 7" scored in half but as for the rest I am not sure... tomorrow I will find a ruler and get you the actual measurements... I also did not add any captions so I will try to explain somewhat of what I did, the shiny red and gold paper is actually old gift bags my sister and brother in-law got for there birthday... I snagged them and used a 1" circle punch to punch out the "ornaments"... I then used my cuttlebug swirls embossing folder and embossed the circles... Next I glued the circles down and using a paper piercer I punched some holes and threaded ribbon through then tied a bow right at the top of the ornament... the rest I think is pretty self explanatory but if you have any questions please let me know via a comment or an e-mail... my life has been turned upside down lately so I will try to get some order and start doing better videos in the near future. As always I hope you have a great day of crafting and have a great day.

Did you have a good Thanksgiving?... Well I guess by now you have realized I am a little behind in my Christmas cards. I had a lot of things happen all at once and just never got a chance to post any videos or really record any videos for that matter. Ok first my sister just got marry (congrats) and I was a bridesmaid so I was busy with that (but ok I knew about that) I had planned around that... Well I had a small visitor in my room... I was sitting there watching one of my favorite shows (MacGvyer) and I look up at my mouse cage (did I mention I have a pet mouse?) and sitting beside the cage is a mouse I have never seen and hello I know I only own 1 pet mouse... So my family and I are up til about 4am trying to catch the stupid thing and we didn't, long story short we finally catch the stupid thing a week later... now the mouse was adorable and I didn't mind it the problem was I could not use my room because we were trying to catch the thing... So needless to say I have been craft less for about 3 weeks now... and with my sister getting married I am between two rooms, her stuff is in my old room with all my craft stuff and my computer is in her old room (my new bigger room yea!) so it will be a long time before I get to any videos... So if you read the blog don't give up I am still here and will be working on videos soon... Plus I used my sisters camera to record my videos so now with out that I am also going to have to figure something out... But a good note my birthday is next Friday so (yea!!!) I may get a new camera... I will keep you updated... SO anyway as always Happy crafting and Have a great day!
