Just a little peek inside the box!

Anna Griffin is so talented and she’s come up with yet another really amazing kit from HSN! It’s a bit like flower arranging with paper.

Anna always packs her kits with so many fun embellishments and goodies to work with!

In the video below, I show you the kit coming directly out of the box plus two finished projects AND my goof ups because I’ve never created a pop-up card like this!

Using the Cricut Cutting Machine – Making A Vinyl Logo for Susan’s Camper

 

Screen Shot 2017-08-25 at 2.19.05 PM

A very good friend of mine Susan decided to drop everything she was doing and head out to see the country (or at least a bit of it) with herself and her two doggies.  She decided that this cute teardrop camper was the perfect form of shelter!

I was fortunate enough to spend some time with her and my tennis buds recently in Virginia and I decided she needed a logo for her camper – so I designed one using my Cricut!

Here’s how I did it and it also includes live video of when we snuck to where her camper was parked and applied it her teardrop!

I hope you enjoy this and if you can please share it on Facebook and Pinterest!

Anna Griffin Halloween Kit is Here!! (and her new Xryon Sticker Maker)

Halloween Anna Griffin KitIt’s always fun when uber talented Anna Griffin releases her Halloween paper kits!  If you love to decorate for Halloween or want to make cards, even candy bag tags, this is a fun kit to have.

Anna rarely does a Halloween kit and she wanted to get it out early so you’d have plenty of time!  What I love about this kit is the cardstock is fantastic and the dies are really fun.

Ultimately, it’s the ease and SPEED that I love. We are all time starved and you can create something  great in minutes with this kit!

Below is my video that gives you an sneak peak of what’s inside and also I’ll show you two finished cards to make!

If you love this video please share it on Facebook and Pinterest!

Easy to make Party and Holiday Hanging Decorations using Crafters Companion Dies and the Gemini Machine!

Dollar Tree Party Hanging DIY you tube

I’m such a fan of strolling the aisles of my local Dollar Tree and see what inspires me! Recently,  I decided to create a 4th of July and a birthday Luau decorative hanging project.

So, for a couple of bucks and a bunch of hot glue, the circle die from Crafters Companion “Circle Centre” and my little workhorse, the Gemini die cutting machine,  here are the result!

Enjoy and have an amazing day!

Embossing & Die Cutting with the Gemini from Crafters Companion How To “101”

Gemini 101.png

I think one of the most confusing things for new crafters or card makers and even those of us who are a bit more seasoned is using an embossing and die cutting machine.  Well in the video below I’ll walk you through the amazing Gemini from Crafters Companion!  If you’ve used crank style machines those will be a thing of the past!

This is totally automatic and works with basically all brands of die and folders.  I go through set up, how to make “The Sandwich” to testing three of the major brands…Crafters Companion, Anna Griffin and Stampin’ Up.

Thanks so much for checking this out, please share my video on Facebook and Pin this on Pinterest if you can!!
