Episode 32 - Necklace Holder

Hi everyone, I hope you are having a great week, I am so glad it's Friday! I have a new video up for you... Do you ever find yourself looking for a necklace and it is tangled in a mess that seems impossible to ever get apart? well this is for you then, last night I was going through my jewelry and what not cleaning and trying to organize it, well my necklaces were killing me, so I decided I needed to come up with an idea for storing them, So I thought Chipboard! (I know kinda weird?) but it worked so well. I just had to share with you... So here is the video for you, sadly it had to be two parts but I personally think it is worth it lol :) Ok enjoy the video. Have a GREAT Friday and Happy Crafting! :)

P.S. Here is a couple of links to brads... but I have NOT bought these so I am not 100% sure they are the same I used for my necklace holder so you might want to just look at you local scrapbooking store:

Hot Off The Press: 200 per package
Brad Pack: Citrus Brad Pack: Chocolate Brad Pack: Autumn

Scrap Essentials
Pastel Brads Metallic Brads

Ok also as I mentioned in the video I wouldn't get Making Memories, the fasteners were to big to fit through the 1/8" eyelets.

Episode 31 - Haul Video

Ok so in my last post I mentioned the fact that these videos got reversed from the way I filmed them but no big deal :)... I ran to my local Michael's today to look for some stamps I saw on smscapper's video and I was able to find 1 of them along with 1 I had never seen and then I went to my other Michael's and was able to find the other stamp I wanted... I bought a few other things but not much... So anyway I hope you enjoy the video and Happy Crafting!

Episode 30 - Mini Desk Notepad

Hi all here is a quick video for you... I made an Mini Desk Notepad, I have seen this idea before using I believe the 4" x 6" Photo Frame? but today at Walmart I found a 2.25" x 3.25" one and it was only $.50 so I had to get it and give it a try... It turned out great and I think would make awesome cheap homemade Christmas gifts :) Also just a note, I filmed a haul video and this tutorial in that order but when I was editing I reversed the order so... any who here is the video, I hope you enjoy and Happy Crafting! :)

Episode 26 - Halloween Card 2

Hi everyone, so Halloween is more of my sisters holiday but I have fallen in love with my new monsters stamp set so I had to break it out again and make yet another Halloween card :)... Ok so the card is a standard A2 size... Here are the dimensions of the card stock I used

Black card stock 4"x5.25
Orange Polka Dot card stock 3.75"x5"
Small Black card stock 1"x1.75"
White card stock .75"x1.5"

I tried something new I got a new Cuttlebug Embossing folder in Polka Dot and I embossed the orange card stock and then everywhere there was a polka dot I put Glossy Accent, I will admit it took a while to add all of the dots, but the end result was well worth it :) I also used the Spellbinders Nestabilities in the "Circle" and the "Scallop Circle" I think it turned out pretty cute so now on to the video... As always have a great day and Happy Crafting!

Episode 24 - Michael's Haul

Ok it is official I am just going to stop saying I am saving for my trip. I have never seen so many deals before lol :) Well I went to my Michael's today and with a $40 budget I came out with $85 worth of stuff? How does it happen so fast? but I will say on a good note everything but one item, I got on sale so that is good and I only got stuff I needed/wanted :) So here is the video with everything I bought, oh but I didn't show it in the video I bought 6 spools of ribbon as well they were 3 for $1... I did also fully intend to buy my "Simply Charmed" Cricut Cartridge but they did not have it in stock at my Michael's (probable a good thing they didn't lol)

Episode 23 - Cardstock Storage

Ok so as I said in a previous post, here is how I store my cardstock to easily find what color I am looking for... Hope this helps some of you :) I personally have found it to be the best way for storing it, it makes it so compact and neat.

Episode 22 - Coupon Holder

Ok so I have a new video up for you... I made my mom a coupon holder to add some organization to her never ending coupons lol :)... I bought the chipboard from Joann's in the 4"x6" and the 8.5"x11"... the envelopes can be any size you want depending on what you plan to store in it, I didn't even think about it til I started filming the video. I am going to make another one and turn it into a mini album, I will definitely post pictures as soon as that is done and maybe a video of some of the process :) So anyway here is the video super, super simple. If you would like an actual tutorial please leave a comment and let me know :) Have a great day and Happy Crafting! :)

P.S. I am still trying to figure out how to make the videos a little louder.

I broke my craft free promise again lol

Well I just slipped up yet again on the trying not to buy any crafts until after my trip lol :) I have been to Michael's twice this week, I know, I know but I had 2 50% off coupons and 2 40% coupons I couldn't resist lol... now I am finding all kinds of things I want and with great prices too :) so I figured since I am trying to behave I would at least share my finds with you :) Although I am off to Michael's again next week with 5 50% off coupons, The ad had a ton of great deals in it, Card stock is 40% off, All Scrapping Storage is 50% off, Stamps, Stickers are 40% and Paper Punches (which are personally my favorite) are 50% off... and also Cricut Cartridges will be $39.99, come on how can you not buy stuff lol... ok well on to some of my finds :) First is the new Cricut cartridge I have had my eye on for a while now they finally have it on Craft-e-Corner one of my favorite websites (they offer free shipping with any order) The cartridge is called "Simply Charmed" Oh my goodness just some awesomely cute cuts on there kinda like Create and Critter but not only animals :) The next thing a stamp set that Kwerner used in one of her videos and I thought it was awesome! the Jumbo Lowercase Stamp Set from Amazon although it is for kids she said to use it for cards, I thought what a great idea :) Ok and now the biggest thing I would love to buy is this awesome desk, much bigger than mine and has a built in file holder which is the perfect way to store cardstock (I will show you how I store mine now) Ok as always have a great day and Happy Crafting! :)

New Video :)

Hi everyone, I have a new video up :) although it is called a haul it isn't really :) why I put that I don't know?... I just mentioned a few items I found around town and really that's it lol... Also the sound is kind of low, I think this is due to the way I was filming... The camera was quite far, I had it attached to a shelf on my wall... so you may need to turn up the volume, I will try to get better for you on that :) Ok so the card is a 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" card... using an awesome stamp from Micheal's $1 aisle ( you gotta love the $1 aisle lol ) the stamp says "just batty about Halloween" so cute :) the patterned paper is from target :) Also sorry the video is a little choppy the camera shut off while I was filming so I lost cutting out the scallop circles but I think you should get the gist lol, If you have any questions please feel free to leave a comment or email me :) as always have a great day and Happy Crafting!
