It’s Friendship Friday! This is the day to focus on giving back or paying it forward. Today I want to talk to you about how to rewire your brain or change how you think.
I’ve been doing some research on why I tend to focus on the negative. It’s how I’ve trained my brain. So then I started looking at how to re-train how I view things. There are tons of articles, videos, and podcasts for this one subject. But one video really stood out to me. It stood out because it was short and concise. There wasn’t a ton of science for me to get lost in. So I would encourage you to take a look…https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1pqPKDu19hU.
So for now I will start with a photo and three things I am grateful for every day. I don’t know about you, but I want to be happier. I want people to see me as uplifting and not someone who complains.
It’s Tutorial Thursday! Today is the day we create a snowy background with water. No ink, just water.
So first you will need your card stock. If you are following the sample you will need a thick white card base, night of navy mat, and whisper white card stock for the snowman. Take your night of navy mat and spritz with water. Sprinkle white embossing powder on the card stock and heat. Stamp your snowman and punch out. For further details please watch the video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Evm5S8n5Kd8.
It’s Tutorial Thursday! We are talking about frosted flossing today and it’s not the dance. I am taking the Feels Like Frost Paper and creating an elegant card. The floss comes in when I am gathering the ribbon.
It’s Tutorial Thursday! Today we are creating from the Hammered Metal 3D Embossing Folder.
Remember that you want to pay attention if you want the front or back of the folder. If you want an image that is raised you will want the front of the folder where the logo is. If you want an image that is more concave you will want the back of the folder where it is blank or the copyright is displayed.
For this card you will need a Thick Very Vanilla Card Base, Mossy Meadow Mat, Blue Peacock Foil Paper for inner mat, Brightly Gleaming Designer Series Paper with the ornament punch, and ribbon.
It’s Tutorial Thursday! Instead of giving you a tutorial for a card or project I am giving you a walk through and review of the new paper trimmer. So take a listen and have a look at our new product coming soon to you.
If you want it before then you need to sign up to be a demonstrator. You don’t need to do all that I do so ask me for more details.
It’s Tutorial Thursday! Today we are making pumpkins and apples out of boxes. The Paper Pumpkin for this month are some cute Halloween-themed mini gable boxes. I know some of you want cards so I came up with an alternative to the box so a card could still be created.
You will need the Harvest Hello Bundle to create the alternative card.
It’s Tutorial Thursday! Sometimes the Designer Series Paper needs to just take the focus. In this case the paper from the Frosted Suite takes the cake. This card is created very simply from the stamps and dies from this suite. Add a touch of vellum and you have a winner.
It’s Tutorial Thursday! Today is the day we sing “inch worm, inch worm…”. Did that just play in your head?
As everyone is getting ready for back to school (unless you have survived it) I am going back to the drawing board. Today’s card has a chalkboard or blackboard for the mat. I thought about that last night as I was shooting the Live, are there even chalkboards any longer? Or is everything a dry erase board or even a smart board. Nevertheless, here’s a chalkboard with an inch worm for back to school.
He’s easy to create. Grab a white card base, daffodil delight mat, basic black inner mat, and some scraps of granny apple green. Add a chalk marker and some google eyes and you are ready to go.
In the video, not only do I show you how to make this card, but I also show you some more new products from the Holiday Catalog. Come pick up your copy at the Open House on Saturday! Here’s the video link…https://youtu.be/U3oSMZ67asQ
