Stampin' Up Stackable Frame Technique Card....PLUS Envelope.

Good Evening friends. I decided to create a Card with matching envelope for you this evening. I had many creative bumps in the road as I set out to make this Vintage Card for you today. Everything that could go wrong, DID....hahaha I never throw a card away, but look at it as an adventure to regroup, and make it work!!!! I decided it needed a matching envelope as well. I do hope you enjoy the process with me. I am still learning my new Final Cut Pro X 10.3 Editing Program my husband bought for me for CHRISTmas, along with a 4TB External Hard Drive. Now, I have a total of 7TB of external space, and Fiberoptic's to make my video's go out in record speed. This tutorial took 5 minutes to upload to YouTube. There was a day with regular WiFi I would wait 6-8 hours for my tutorials to go to YouTube. Not any more......hahaha I thank the Lord for His help, as I am learning to edit, good, quality video's for my terrific Subscriber's. Huge Smiles. This isn't one of those kind of
video's though. hahahahahaha I am still learning. This is the second time I used the program. teehee. I wanted to go back to iMovie today, because I am comfortable with it, but I knew it wouldn't do me any good to stay where I am comfortable. I need to step out of my comfort zone, and learn to make amazing, video edits for YOU, my friends that take the time to view them. Thanks so much for your patience with the process. Thank you also for your prayers as I am recovering from pneumonia. God Bless you my friends. Happy New Year to all as well. 2017 is approaching in just days.

Thrift Store Spinning Organizer Refurbish.....Learning the New Final Cut Pro X 10.3 Editing System

A warm welcome to my Craft Room friends. I wanted to experiment with my new editing system I received as a Christmas gift. It is the Final Cut Pro X 10.3 Version, and it is my first time using it today. I hope you will bear with me, as I am learning how to use it. hahaha  I wanted to place a video up to say hello, and let you know I am getting better. I have been recovering with pneumonia, so I haven't been up to creating the last week before Christmas. I had this on my camera, and missed my time spent with friends on YouTube, so I relaxed as I am setting out to learn this new Editing Program ......lol I pray that everyone had a wonderful Christmas with family, and you are resting up to the New Year that is approaching. Thank You very much for your patience, as I am getting back to my Creative mode. Huge Smiles

An Unbelievable Gift Box arrived, and I would like to share it with you. Let's take a PEEK!

A warm welcome this morning .....it is 12:12 in the a.m. as I place this here for your enjoyment. As most of you know, I seem to do my editing quite late in the evening, and into the morning. haha I want to thank each person that is subscribed to my Blog. If you leave me a message here, and I don't answer it, it is because I don't receive a notice that one is here.  I am going to make this a priority to check here. You mean so much to me as friends, and I don't want to miss a comment that you take the time to leave me. On a bright note, I want to share this Gift Box # 2, I was sent in the mail, and opened for you today. You are not going to believe the goodness, and blessings in here. I will also share some upcoming projects for this week as well in this tutorial. I am feeling much better, thanks to your prayers. Pneumonia has hit me hard this year, and I have gone through 4 different antibiotics to heal the different strains I had contacted. I have to rest, and take the cough syrup with the antibiotics once a day. I thought I would give you an update, as I asked for prayers for this bout of pneumonia. Here is the first Gift Box I was sent a few weeks ago if you missed it.... Gift Box # 1
Have a Blessed Week my friends.

Gingerbread Cookies inside a Stainless Steel Oven that opens.

Welcome friends to another interactive Card. I wanted to use my 1997 Stampin' Up Christmas Set with the lovely Gingerbread image. I also wanted to make a Stainless Steel Oven Door that actually opens to reveal the Cookies on a Cookie Sheet. The Glass front is two layers of thick acetate, so the Cookie Pan can slide in-between. When the oven door opens it reveals 350 degrees of fun looking heat in the oven itself. It has matching Oven Mitts, and the Gingerbread Cookies, and Pan is an actual Tag to slide in and out revealing KJV Scripture Verse on the back of the Pan. I hope that you enjoy the process with me. Thanks for viewing, and for your lovely comments.

Beginner Level Watercoloring Frothy Waves, and Puffy Clouds

Welcome to my Blog today. I decided to do a Watercolour Painting for you. I find two things we as artist's struggle with when watercoloring at times, that is painting frothy waves, and puffy clouds. hahaha....I find watercoloring such a relaxing way to keep my Mojo in tact, yet stimulating my creativity at the same time. Before I called it an evening last night, I got out my supplies to do a quick tutorial for you this morning, in hopes of inspiring you to possibly do this in a small CARD style project. I am going to do that on a 6x6 watercolour card later in the week. smiles I hope you enjoy the process as much as I enjoyed creating it for you. It is a quick way to make those frothy wave, and puffy clouds without feeling discouraged in the process. Thank you as always for you encouraging support here, and on my YouTube Channel. Have a blessed week my friends. Here is a painting I did some time ago using Pan Pastel's for the first time:

World Card Making Day Challenge "Flags"

Today is the final day at Catherine Pooler's site, "Stamp Nation" where I was a Guest Designer for World Card Making Day which began Friday, and finishes up today. I made this card for the "Flag" Challenge. I already posted my Guest Design Team Canada Card, so the natural Flag for me to create as a second card was the Great USA Flag. As a Christian, and Canadian, it was an Honour to design the Flag of the United States of America. It is steeped in Christian beginnings, and represents the Freedom we all possess "One Nation Under God". I hope you are inspired by it. With Thanksgiving coming our way, I thought this would be a marvellous card to send out to family, and friends. God Bless America, and my Homeland, Canada.

My first "Sewing Lace Album"....A Step by Step Tutorial

Welcome to my craft room. I began my first ever Lace Sewing Album for a Christian lady friend of mine, that came to visit us from North Carolina. I am making this for her, and when I finish it, I will send it off in the mail.  I have to admit that I was a bit intimidated beginning this project, because there are so many lace artist's on YouTube that are brilliant when it comes to using laces, trims, appliqué .....and so on. I saw these lace albums on YT, and fell in love with them. I am going to walk you through the process with me, on each page. I hope that it will inspire you to create on for yourself, or for a gift. Let's get started my friends.

Meat Shop Freezer Wrap, Cotton, and an Ink Jet Printer for lovely images every time.

Good Morning, and welcome to my Craft Room. Today begins my Sewing Album using my Laces, and Doilies from my Thrift Store Haul. I wanted to test out Brown Freezer Wrap to see if my Ink
Jet Printer would transfer the images on this colour freezer paper. Well, you will see, that it did, and the cotton was just perfect for the job. I hope that this tutorial will encourage you to use Meat Store Wrap, and Cotton to transfer lovely images for your next project. Have a Blessed Week.

Thrift Store Haul

Thank you so much for joining me this evening. Well, my BFF Cathy from PA, came down to Canada to visit me yesterday, and today. We decided to go Thrift Store Shopping. I have one thing on my mind, and that was to get home before noon. I didn't want to be on my feet all day, and I wasn't feeling very well today. I did have a list of project supplies I wanted to look for, and after breakfast we set out to accomplish our goals. My list consisted of a Wedding Gown for me to cut the Appliqué from for my Album Projects. I also wanted to add as many Doilies to my ever growing Doily Stash today. The next thing on my list was trims. I wanted to see how many beautiful trims I could find in the three Thrift Stores we set out to shop in. I prayed about it before leaving, that I would not get side tracked, and the Lord answered my prayers. In 2 hours, I had everything on my list, and we were home for lunch....hahaha What a wonderful day with my BFF friend Cathy. We had a day of laughing, and shopping. You can't get any better that that, right? Enjoy
