I gave in to the Halloween album lol!

Ok so I felt really bad about ditching the Halloween album and decided to finish it and post a video after all! I know I'm crazy, but I was almost finished anyway! I'm going to do another Halloween album later so I'll make a cuter one then!

Halloween Album

So I've been working on a mini Halloween album, and I was excited at first but now I'm losing the excitement! I hate when that happens because then I end up trashing the idea when it's almost finished. I started the video, but I'm just not happy with how it's turning out. I think I'm going to work on another album lol. I'll come back to it later when I feel like it. I'll try to get another video up tonight though.

My Anniversary

Hi everyone! Today is my anniversary, so I'm pretty sure I won't get to post a video tonight. However I did make a card video last night so I will have to post that so you can see my card making skills. I am no means as good at making cards as I am scrapbooks so bare with me on this one. Plus, I was asked to use some particular items so I did my best with what I had to work with. I hope you like anyway!

I'll keep trying to get those other videos up tonight. Also, the next video I am going to do is a video about how I plan and sketch my mini albums.

Can I break a promise?

Can I break a promise? Ok, so I promised I would post another video tonight but I am so lazy! Today I went to Turlock to set up a booth for OFTM at a little home shopping event thing, and it actually wore me out. I had to lug two super heavy boxes up a huge flight of stairs, my wrist was killing me eeek! Yes I have wrist problems bad!! Ouch! Anyhow, it was fun, I introduced some cute little old ladies to Grungeboard and they actually made some pretty cute tags! Ok well maybe only one did lol. Anyhow I got to exercise my sales skills a bit! Ok enough of that, yes, yes, yes, I will post a new video tonight even though I don't want to. See how much I love you! Oh and guess what! Can you say, "How to"? Yup it's going to be a "How to" segment! Stay tunned to see what it's about! Happy Scrapin!

This is the new blog!

Hi everyone! Welcome to my new blog! I decided to take the old one off the original website because it was way overloaded and I wanted everyone to be able to comment and ask questions. So please feel free to comment or ask anything you'ld like!

Video Tutorials

Hi everyone! I just posted 3 new videos last night so I hope you enjoy them. One of the questions I've been getting a lot of lately is when I'm going to be posting tutorials. I will be posting technique tutorials and tips, however I will not be teaching how to make my specialty mini albums and such. The reason is that I will be teaching these classes at Oh For the Memories in Modesto CA.
If you are not from around here and would like a design guide and kit for the classes please let me know and I will make arrangements to have one sent to you. Kit prices vary but are very reasonable! Another question was what kind of ink I use all the time in my videos for the edges of paper. The ink is Tim Holtz distress ink. It is available at OFTM as well. Thanks guys hope ya read tomorrow!
