Episode 1 I Love Moo

4 comments
Hello Everyone!!

I am so excited about today's blog post because I made my first video, and I FINALLY get to share it.  I had some issues in the uploading process, but it worked.  Like I said, this is my first video and I am excited to see what the response will be!

A few things to know before you watch...this is my first video and there are some things I need to work on (like camera angles).  I apologize in advance if there is something you cannot see.  I do not think this is detrimental to the instructions I give, but if you have questions please feel free to ask.  Second, I like watching videos that list the products they are using as well as the dimensions of the paper and such.  I tried to list all of the products I am using throughout the video.  I do not represent or work for these companies.  I just wanted you to be informed as to what I use.

Please leave comments and let me know what you think!  I'm hoping to do many more.





Happy Crafting, 
Lauren

Small Wonder

Hi Everyone!

I just got back from Texas a few days ago, and it was amazing! I had a fabulous time visiting my family. Now I'm just getting ready for school to start again.  It's my last year in graduate school!! I'm excited to be done with school, but a little nervous about getting an adult job.  I'm sure it will be good though!

Here is a card I did a little while back that I haven't shared.  I got my inspiration from a Stampin' Up stamp that is in the new catalogue.  I love the adult and baby elephant.  This is the first baby card I made, and I'm proud of it.  Let me know what you think!! As always, the supplies I used are at the bottom. 




Supplies Used: 
Stampin' Up Cardstock
Patterned Paper from DCWV
White grosgrain ribbon from Wal mart
EK Success Punch
Create-A-Critter Cartridge
Stampin' Up "Whimsical Words" Stamp set

Hi Everyone!

I'm leaving tomorrow to go visit my mom in Texas.  but, I finished packing early, which means that I got to play with my Gypsy tonight!!

I LOVE Dalmatians!! I used to own one.  I have wanted to use the Dalmatian from Create-A-Critter for a long time.  When I saw My Pink Stamper's critter challenge, I knew today was the day!! I had an idea for what I wanted to do, but after I saw Emma's video where she welded the postage stamp I had the urge to do a shaped card.

It's my first attempt at making a shaped card, and I think I did okay.  I don't think I welded the fire hydrants quite right because they're a little off.  The biggest learning curve I am having with my gypsy is where to put the paper on the mat.  I know it gives the lines and the measurements, but I always seem to be off somehow.

Anyway, here is what I came up with for Robyn's challenge. Hope you enjoy!



Supplies Used:

Happiness is a Butterfly

Hello Everyone!!

I feel like it has been forever since I have posted a project...even though I've been crafting like crazy lately. I just got a Gypsy for my birthday (which is in September, but my wonderful fiancee gave it to me early), so look for projects with that.  I'm still getting used to it, but I have a feeling I'm going to love it.

I'm also leaving to go visit my mom in Texas for a long weekend.  Not only am I super excited to see her, but she is also a Stampin' Up demonstrator, which means I get to play with her stuff for a weekend.  I also have a feeling I'm going to be mailing myself a bunch of goodies.

Onto my project.  I found the Split Coast Stamper's website earlier this month, and I fell in LOVE with it!! They have a bunch of different projects with instructions..  I found the instructions for this pocket card and knew I had to try it.  I dressed it up with a sentiment and a butterfly cut out with my cricut.  I love the way it came out, and I'm going to be trying more tutorials from them soon.  Let me know what you think!!



Supplies Used: 
Stampin' Up Cardstock
