Filming of Card Making

A few weeks ago a friend helped me to film me making some cards.  I am very lucky to have wonderful friends to help me and one being Nick who has done a lot of work in the filming industry.  He, his wife and my partner set up the kitchen table with cameras, monitors, lighting and sound..... I felt like a TV star!  They all left me in front of running cameras to do my thing.... to make cards for you.  It was a great experience and hope to continue to bring you new ideas and to show you how to make them.  I think the hardest part of the whole video process was the editing.... trying to cut out me rambling on and all my bloopers.  I hope you enjoy the videos, I have so far put up 4 videos for you to enjoy.  Below are some of the photos we took before filming started.

The beautiful Golden Retriever.... who you may hear in one of my videos

The reward after all my filming..... chocolate martini made by my wonderful girlfriend... yum!

Waterfront Stamp Set Video #4

The Waterfront stamp set has to be one of my favourites at the moment.  I have used the set in quite a few designs, see some of the photos below the video.  I used to go to art classes to try and paint/draw like this stamp set, so this set is also helping me create the images I liked to paint and draw yay!  I do love seeing artwork that is painted and then separated with the little gaps up on the wall and decided to try it on a card.  This was the first video of the four videos I made a month ago.  Some of the sound dropped out in this video so I had to record some of the audio and edit it altogether.... which was a challenge but I had a friend who is an expert and was able to guide me through to be able to bring you this video.  I am looking forward to making some more videos to give you inspiration so look out for them weekly.  I hope you enjoy the video.  Please feel free to leave me a comment or any queries you have below.  Sit back, relax and enjoy the video.

Petal Palette Video #3

Hello!  I have made another video using the Petal Palette Bundle (145974).  This stamp set is very versatile and comes with 2 stamp sets.  I love the effect of the stamps, the lighter and darker parts when you stamp the stamp.  In the framelite set there are a couple of banners which I will be using in many of my designs... they are just so gorgeous!  I realised that when I made this video I used one of the Sale-A-Bration items Springtime Foil DSP and that finished March 2018 😞.  The good news is that I bought a few extra packs of the Springtime Foil DSP.  If you order the Petal Palette Bundle through me, I will send you a 6" x 6" packet of the Springtime Foil DSP.  The Occasions catalogue runs until the end of May 2018.  Follow this link to go to my shopping cart.  Without further ado, sit back, relax and enjoy the video.

Here is a card using the flowers in the Petal Palette Bundle
