My Five Most Viewed Videos: Pick Your Favourite!

Hello stampers and happy Wednesday to you. Today I am going to share my five most viewed videos and I would like you to pick your favourite. The one with the most votes will get recreated with current products! I am excited to share this walk down memory lane with you. Can you believe that I have posted 593 video on YouTube? I think the oldest one is from 2017.


Video Number One:  Faux Leather Technique



I have since done a new Faux Leather technique video, you can see that one here.


Video Number Two:  Twisted Pop-Up Card Tutorial



Here is the link to an old blog post that features a different twisted pop-up card that has a nautical theme. I really do love this fancy fold card!


Video Number Three:  Love it, Chop it



Here is the link to my blog post where I talk about the love it, chop it mentality and how it can really change how you use your paper!


Video Number Four:  Super Quick Way to Mount Your Cling Stamp Sets



I need to add a disclaimer to this video. While this trick CAN save you a lot of time, sometimes there can be an error in the matching of the sticker sheet to the stamps. When this happens, there is no going back. You will not be able to take the stickers off after they are on. So look carefully before you begin to see if there are any discrepancies.


Video Number Five: Stamping on Embossing Folders



This one is a lot of fun. Today I am trying something new. I am spreading embossing paste on my card, letting it dry slightly, and then pressing the embossing folder into it. Stay tuned for how it turns out!


What do YOU Think?


Well, what’s the verdict? Which of these videos should recreate using current products? It sure is fun to see what was being used five or six years ago and how I have also changed!

I hope you have fun with this and I am looking forward to hearing from you what the verdict will be. Have a super day and happy stamping. Thanks for checking out my blog today.

Bright Vintage Queen Bee

Hello stampers and welcome to my blog! Today I am sharing what I call a bright vintage Queen Bee card. The feel is definitely vintage but the pop of Crushed Curry does make it a bit brighter than traditional vintage. This design is from Laura Milligan who also designed this stamp set as a Million Dollar Achiever. I loved making it!

I really do love the word “beloved” in this stamp set. I’ve used it in the background for my sympathy cards and that really tugs at my heartstrings.

For this square vintage card (it measures 4 1/4″ by 4 1/4″) I layered it with vellum cardstock, smoky slate and crushed curry cardstock. The details in the background come from Ranunculus Romance.

Colour Refresh


Today is the day that we find out about the colour refresh. My advice would be to order the ink refills and cardstock of the colours that you love that are leaving and do so as soon as possible. I am sure that some will sell out very quickly, so this is a time when you do not want to procrastinate!

Thanks for joining me today. As always, the products that I have used are listed below. A simple click on them, and you will be in my online store in Canada. If you live in Europe you can shop with me here or join my team.

Have a super day!!
