What a whirlwind the month of July has been! I received my Paper Pumpkin kit the day I arrived at Libby's house, we crafted twelve hours to finish all of the swaps, most of that time was libby helping me, Thank you so much Libby!

Then off we went to the NC Demos quarterly meeting and we crafted all day and evening on Saturday. I haven't seen Libby for three years so I ended up staying...

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.

The sheer volume of content that this kit warranted made me break up the video into two parts.

For Part one, I sped up some prep and stamping to keep it under thirty minutes and for part two I just gave up and let it go long.

The tips, tricks and designs make every minute of part two worthwhile.

Here is the link to part one ->...

Boy oh boy this video was a challenge. I forgot to turn on filming for the middle part of the video. Thinking all was well, it was very, very late by the time I checked the footage.

I prefer to film straight through and not splice footage together and that is what had to happen. So, the re-shoot happened the next day. Please pardon the splicing and not so perfect continuity. Though it...

I always enjoy the Valentine's Paper Pumpkin kit. This year's edition is perhaps a little better than most because I like all of the stamps! I share many easy-peasy techniques, tips and extra supply options to get the most out of the materials. I also love that we received the ribbon on a spool which means there was ALOT of it and that it has no folds in it, woohoo!

The kit for November didn't really work well for me. It wasn't that it featured gingerbread, or that it was a tags based kit. It did not have enough variety for the type of cards I like to make. I think I did well with the alternatives in the end.

so, when I saw the bear in the sneak peek I was sure it would be a repeat of last month. Boy was I surprised. It is a card kit with three...
