World Card Making Day -- Sketch & Video

World Card Making Day is here! 

The day that we take some time out of our hectic 
schedule and craft something (preferably a card).... 

Ha! 

Odds are the average crafter doesn't celebrate... 
*BUT*... 
it is a great day to check out some 
amazing inspiration on the web
and maybe enter into a few contests! 


Today at the shop I have some inspiration for you... 

a video... 

and even a sketch! 



I'm not too big of a sketch person but I do like them for 
fast and easy cards... you can makes lots of different cards 
based on *one* simple idea... 

Check out my idea for this...


Just a simple little card sketch from my sketch book.

And with some love from these two sets:

'Hello Beautiful'


And 'The Core of It' 


I created two *very* different cards off of one idea





I could have kept going and going with this simple idea... 

I think these cards took about 15 min. and most 
of that time was contemplating what patterned paper 
I would use...lol... you know the *big* 
decisions. 

Now, off to the video... I warn you I'm chatty!

I'm working in not feeling like I 
have to -talk- the whole time. 

Oh, well... I'm a total video work in progress!

This video is showing you how to 
make the little rosette you saw in this card


I make it without a score board... 
much faster and easier! 


You can check it out here: 




I know... I'm too chatty... but, it *is* a good tip!
