There are 10 pink Blends markers for 2021-22! I thought it would be nice to have cardstock and embellishment swatches to speed up deciding on which to use.

The camera had a hard time with all the glossy surfaces, I apologize for that. 

In the end I have a great swatch tool to pull out whenever needed. I might need to swatch ALL the Blends in this manner.

This last project was so fun. I love exploring the limits of supplies as well as trying something different.

I wanted to softly age this project with some muted tans.

I found that a perfect Blends color to help age Basic White! 

I also discuss a couple of supplies videos I plan to do next!

This week flew by so fast! Next thing I knew it was Friday and two videos had not been loaded.

I decided to title these two videos "The Lost Files" and today's video is the first of the two. I love this card and hub gave it the "ok" which for him is a miracle as he doesn't believe gray should ever be used. "It isn't a color" - is his reasoning.

It has been almost 5 years since we sold our home and moved into our fifth wheel to travel full-time.

Our first trailer was just under 35 feet. We replaced it with a 32.5 foot trailer in 2018. Talk about having to manage our space.

Keeping my crafting supplies contained and hidden when not in use has been a challenge for sure.

I talk about how I now store my ink spots (1"...

This project started as a Congratulations card, but as it sat on my desk awaiting a fix, it begged to be turned into a Thanksgiving card.

I had to come up with a very long sentiment that would fit on the existing label and I used A Wish For Everything to create a phrase.

This is such a nice kit! I love the unique shaped card bases and that it works seemlessly for masculine and feminine cards.

I demonstrate many coloring techniques using Stampin' Blends markers.

Very few added supplies were used in the video and aside from some sort of small embellishments. The kit really does work well without any added supplies.

This week I had the pleasure of crafting in the flesh with my mom and her friend Shelley. I haven't crafted with someone other than my husband since last summer!  And I had to bring one new bundle - Quiet Meadow.

Sadly, I ended up having to hide two different mistakes, one of which I made live in the video. Mistakes are bound to happen.
