This is How a Paper Hoarder makes a Card!

Hi friends! I have a serious problem and I think many paper-crafters can relate. Precious paper. You know that stuff that is too pretty to use, and to add insult to injury sometimes there is a gorgeous paper on the back side too! I seriously feel like I need to buy a couple of sheets to use and a couple to keep. Luckily my frugalness keeps me from buying 5 sheets of the same piece of paper but cutting into my one and only sheets pains me. Today I am going to show you how to stretch that lovely paper and make a cute card!

Need More Marker Ideas? We’ve got ‘um!

Hi guys! Do you have waterbased markers? Marvy LePlume, Whispers, Distress, Tombow, Memento, Stampin Up or others? Today I am going to share a few techniques with you. Some might be old favorites, some might be new but hopefully by the end of the video you will see how versatile your watercolor marks are! Also, I’ll let you know what I think of a new waterproof inkpad I bought. Enjoy the video! 😀

That card won’t win any awards but it was fun and isn’t that the point? The stamp I used is from Art Neko (formally About Art Accents) and it is available as a single image, a plate of 10 designs or a set of 6 plates with all 50 states birds and flowers plus bonus stamps, they are gorgeous and perfect if you love to color! Well, that’s it for me tonight, one of my favorite shows that has been on break for weeks because of March Madness is back on, I’m gonna watch me some Elementary! Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
