I have some great news to share with everyone today! I was invited by Scraps of Darkness to be an Educator! I had been looking for quite a long time for a kit club that met my sensibitilities, and well, you just have to check them out and see for yourself. Working exclusively with their Color and Creativity add-ons (very juicy!!!), I’ll be crafting videos for your regular viewing pleasure woo hoo! I’m extremely excited to have an opportunity to spread my love of craft with an even larger audience. And I’m pretty sure that this experience is going to help me grow leaps and bounds, too!
This week I’m also celebrating my guest blog post at the Two Peas in a Bucket blog. This is a sneak peak of what is being featured over there today!
Funky funky! The text which I die-cut using my Sizzix Typeset die reads, “Transcend.” I chose this word as well as this pink palette because initially, I had crafted this tag in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month, which has just ended. The word resonates with me and I think it would be a meaningful sentiment for anyone in the midst of difficulty. Hope you’ll click the link, check out the tutorial and leave me a little comment over there!
In other news, I have just posted a video on my channel which illustrates the same technique over at 2P’s BUT with a different color palette and a holiday theme. It’s in HD, too! So take a break, grab a cuppa, and enjoy!
I’m getting great use out of my new video camera (thanks, hubby) and will be having lots more video inspiration for you on youtube in the months to come. Here’s a progress shot of the holiday project – hope you’ll check it out!
