Been Sick :(

Sorry I havent posted a new video this week... but the whole family has the flu. Been trying to kick it but everyday brings a new symptom.. lol. I have also been trying to quit smoking and have been a bowl of happy cherries... lol... I am the cranky scrapper now! As soon as I am feeling better I am going to do faux postage and some other great faux videos.

Hope everyone else is doing a lot better than me!

Hugs to you all!

FAUX SEWING

NO, I DON'T KNOW THE FIRST THING ABOUT SEWING! I HAVE 2 MACHINES PLUS A MINI CRAFT ONE AND CAN'T THREAD IT OR SEW IN A STRAIGHT LINE! BUT I LOVE THE LOOK OF STITCHING ON LAYOUTS, CARDS, ETC. SO I HAVE LEARNED TO FAUX SEW. THIS VIDEO SHOWS SEVERAL WAYS TO ACHIEVE THE SEWN LOOK WITHOUT SEWING AND I EVEN ATTEMPT TO DEMONSTRATE ON MY SEW CRAFTY MINI BY PROVO CRAFT. THE VIDEO ALSO SHOWS HOW TO EMBOSS WITH PIGMENT INKS, AS SOME PEOPLE HAVE WANTED ME TO DO A VIDEO ON EMBOSSING. THE ITEMS DIDN'T COME OUT THE BEST, BUT HOPEFULLY YOU WILL GET THE IDEA... SEE, I CAN'T EVEN FAUX SEW! LOL!

ENJOY!

WHATS TO COME IN MARCH!!

HAPPY SAINT PATTY'S DAY EVERYONE!

I REMEMBER WHEN I WAS LITTLE HOW WE LOOKED FORWARD TO MARCH CAUSE THAT MEANT THE WARM WEATHER WAS COMING AND WE COULD GO OUTSIDE TO PLAY SOON! BUT NOW IT SEEM THAT MARCH AND APRIL IS OUR "SNOW" MONTHS. SO WHAT RHYMES WITH SNOW? FAUX! THIS MONTH I WILL BE DO VIDEOS ON DIFFERENT FAUX TECHNIQUES. I ALWAYS TRY TO DO THINGS TO SAVE MONEY AND A GOOD TIP WHEN SHOPPING AT YOUR CRAFT STORES IS TO LOOK FOR ITEMS THAT YOU CAN USE OVER AND OVER AGAIN IN MORE THAN ONE WAY. ITS ALL ABOUT GETTING THAT PROFESSIONAL LOOK FOR PENNIES! SO I HOPE YOU STAYED TUNED FOR A WONDERFUL MONTH OF MONEY SAVING AND DO IT YOURSELF VIDEOS!

ENJOY!
