The best thing about creating a One Layer Card (other than the challenge of creating exactly what you want in only one layer) is that it is easy to post and with crossed fingers it will arrive at it’s final destination in one piece and without any extra postage cost.

I’ll be back next week with the final in this series!

Video : Hot Pink MFT Hedgehogs at Scrapbook Boutique!

Time for a video for Scrapbook Boutique and I have a clean and simple card to share today (and it’s not a Christmas card either…. ).  For some reason I thought that this MFT hedgehog would look great with hot pink fur, I don’t know what I was thinking, but it was fun!

Video : Zig Flowers from Altenew – By Request!

Time to practice with my Zigs again and so today ‘By Request’ I have recreated a card that I made for the recent Altenew release.  Of course I couldn’t make it exactly the same, but it’s close enough.  HERE is the card that I was inspired by.

I am enjoying my Zigs, but still have a long ways to go, I am glad that I bought the bigger selection now as it saves having to ‘mix’ colours…  is that lazy?  or smart?   Anyhow, hope you are having a great day, Hugs

Video : 2016 Same but Different Christmas Card Series – No 4 – Mass Production Tips – Six Cards!

Welcome back, and we are already into Week 4 of my Christmas Card Series for 2016, can you believe it!  And today it’s all about ‘mass production’ and you all know that sometimes it’s a necessary ‘evil’ lol. but with some slight tweaks they can all be ‘the Same but Different’.

You can see my video here or Watch it in HD at Youtube.

There are some great advantages to mass production, the pressure is ‘off’, you don’t have to rethink every card design and while the goodies are out, making multiples of a design certainly is a time saver.  Finally, if it means that your friends and family can receive a hand made card from you this Christmas, that is truly a bonus and I will tell you right now that they will appreciate it, it does not matter that the cards are similar or even the same!

See you again real soon!  Hugs,
