Basket Bunch Carrot Box Video

Basket Bunch Carrot Box Video

Hello!  I created this cute project for Easter and decided to make a video to show how I made it.  It’s not perfect – in fact I didn’t do any editing on the video at all – so sorry about the little outburst from the dogs in the middle.  Hopefully I explained it enough so that it makes sense to everyone.  Below I’ll include a list of the supplies that I used.

I had this project in my mind because of the little carrot in the Basket Bunch stamp set.  Every Easter I buy these little chocolate carrots and wanted to make something combining them with the stamp set.  I almost got upset when I couldn’t find the chocolate carrots at the store – I though oh no I finally have an idea and they have stopped making them!  But I found them at my grocery store and when I went back yesterday they had even more than the first time I went.  Anyway here is my little project –


I used part of the packaging that the candy comes in – it holds the carrot inside my little box.  I explain that in the video but here are a few photos too.

Here is the video for you – I hope you’ll take a look and let me know what you think.

It’s a video! A peek at Halloween

The Stampin’ Up! Holiday catalog will be starting soon.  On September 1st to be exact.  Yes it is time to prepare for the holidays but before we start looking at Christmas I wanted to take a quick peek at some of the Halloween products in the Holiday Catalog.

I am trying to start making some videos so that is what I have done for my peeks at this Holiday Catalog.  I think I made 4 videos and I’ll share them over the next few days.  The Holiday catalogs that were mailed out are starting to arrive in mailboxes now and I’ll be handing them out at my classes starting this week.  Ordering won’t begin until Sept. 1st – so for now you just have to make a wish list!

I’m not totally comfortable doing the video thing so hopefully I’m not too boring.  This one is just to give you a better look at some of the products – looking at the pages of the catalog doesn’t always give you the best impression.

I can’t show you the pages of the catalog yet – there are some more Halloween items – the ones in the video are the ones that I have purchased during the pre-order for demonstrators.

So here goes – watch the video on YouTube –

Thanks for visiting!


July Paper Pumpkin Kit

I want to start making more videos!  So I sat down last night and filmed this and spent a little bit of time editing today and uploading it.  It’s just a simple video showing the contents of the July Paper Pumpkin kit.  I want you to see how much stuff is in it!  And the picture of the cute projects.  I still have to put mine together and work on some alternate ideas.  I hope you’ll join Paper Pumpkin.  I saw the August and September kits and both are awesome.  New subscribers can join right now and get your first two months at 50% off – what a deal!  And if you don’t love it there is no obligation to stay – but I think you will love it now!

Check out this video I made –

Dip-Dye Technique

This wasn’t what I planned to share with you today.  But we recently upgraded our internet service and yesterday Greg installed a new router and I guess everything isn’t quite right because I can’t get to the external drive from my laptop and that’s where all my pictures and files are!  I’m waiting on him to get home from work so I can get connected to the drive again.  Technology is never easy is it?

Even our new thermostats using our network and this morning they had a network error – I was trying to figure out how to turn up the heat.  I was able to do that finally but I don’t think the network connection is there so I can’t make changes from my iphone – which is pretty cool.  Technology is cool but not always easy!

So instead I’m going to share a video from Stampin’ Up!  It shows you the Dip-Dye Technique.  Enjoy!

I’ll see you next time!


New Video – Make a Baker’s Twine Stamp

Are you ready?  I made another video!  This was a fun technique that I taught at my Hands-On class last month.  The class was all about Baker’s Twine and different ways to use it.  In this video I’m going to show you how I used Baker’s Twine to make a cool stamp!  I’m still learning how to create videos so sorry for the shadow puppets at the beginning, and for moving off the screen a couple of times.  Hopefully you can hear me better – I tried to talk louder – that was the most common comment from my first video.  I learn something new every time!

Here is the card that I’ll be showing you.  You can see the original post for this card HERE.

I hope you enjoy the video and this fun technique!


Let me know what you think.  Could you hear me better?
