He is a new video I’ve uploaded to show some simple scrapbook layouts where I have used mesh as a background and a stencil, and although it’s not shown here, you can obviously use the coloured mesh (after using it as a stencil) for another scrapbook page, talk about ‘get your money’s worth’!
Here’s the first of four videos showing the paper bag albums I made for relatives for Christmas. These are videos made from stills which I talk about. I didn’t have time to film real time videos, as I was ‘up against it’ to get them finished and wrapped!!! Video at the botton of this post.
I thought I would make a video to share a very small scrapbook album I made. It’s so small it fits inside a ‘ring box’ – you know… the flip open presentation boxes for that diamond ring all girls want! Actually I prefer coloured gems and this particular box held a ring that only cost £25… and I bought it for myself… but it’s the thought that counts… right?
Anyway, I digress… here is the video of this little gem!
Below is a video tour (brief) of my version of the K&Co Smashbook, which I think is a good idea by the way, just don’t like their designs that much, not my style. But I think the company has thought it through well, with all the little extras.
Above is Honey’s effort – she is 7 and I only showed her what to do, didn’t do it for her.
Anyway, 4 minutes just to show you mine and my daughter’s (age 7). For those who don’t know what a Smashbook is… and I didn’t until fairly recently… I’ve included some links below.
Chris Hertel has made a couple of videos of her home made book… DIY Smash Book Part 1DIY Smash Book Part 2 and the printouts she mentions in her videos (which I printed out for my daughter to use as seen in my video!) are here. They are in a PDF file for downloading.
I had an email from Basic Grey today to let me know about a new craft video using one of their Collection packs. It is a video on how to make a Gratitude Journal.
If you have seen any of my previous articles on Intentional Scrapbooking and my musings on “the Secret” then you will know what a graditude journal is, but suffice to say that it is merely a place where you write your thank you’s for all those things you are grateful for in your life. Feeling gratitude for what you already have should bring you more things you can feel grateful for!!! That’s the theory!
Anyway, the tutorial is on the Basic Grey website and they have also included a downloadable PDF of the inside pages for you to print out and use. Obviously you can use any papers to make your journal!
I have managed to upload a new Video – woo hoo! It’s an add-on really from the very first video I posted on You Tube (well scrapbooking one anyway) which was about taking apart shop bought ‘silk’ flowers and using them on scrapbook pages.
Well this one shows which is the best colour to buy (in my humble opinion) and how you can match them in to any coloured project you are working on!
A Video Tutorial for you all. How to make a Round Pop-Up Mini Album… I won’t write too much because the (just under) 10 minute video is self-explanatory and takes you step-by-step through the simple process of making a lovely mini album.
Thanks to all the people who have already commented on my You Tube Channel… it’s so nice to get feedback!
