Guess Who's a Splitcoaststampers Guest Tutorial Author?

Do you remember this lovely mini album? If you're new to my blog you can see the original post HERE. But before you do, please allow me to share my exciting news.



After posting this project back in January, I was contacted by Splitcoaststampers (SCS) and asked if I would consider being a Guest Tutorial Author and show other crafters how I created this lovely mini album. In case you don't already know, SCS is an amazing online community of papercrafters and stampers. So, you can imagine my excitement and, you already know, I did not hesitate to say YES!

This has been in the works for about three months and today is the day that my tutorial has posted!

Check out my tutorial HERE.

If, after watching, you are inspired to create your own amazing mini album be sure to upload a photo HERE so we can be further inspired to transform paper into little works of art. Or you could always leave me a comment below, sharing a link to your mini album masterpiece!

If you aren't already a part of the SCS community, what are you waiting for? Check them out today! There, you'll find a super inspiring gallery that you can browse or upload to plus a ton of awesome tutorial resources!

Springtime, Where Are You?

While the calendar may say that it's Spring, for many of us in the Midwest Winter showed up late and it seems to have kicked up it's feet as if it's going to say awhile... for at least another week. Well, if Spring won't come to me, then I must go to Spring!

It may not look like Spring outside but, with my trusty flower punches in hand, it definitely looks like Spring in my craft room.

Check out today's video tutorial to learn how to transform paper into a little work of art.

Grateful Bunch Birthday Card

Today's project is a card that I created back in December as a preview to the then "upcoming" Occasions 2016 Catalog. Back then, I shared my project via a blog post and pinned it to my Pinterest but did not make a video tutorial.

This is, currently, the most re-pinned pin on my Pinterest and I have, recently, received messages from several people asking me to create a tutorial for how I created this card. So, I have created a tutorial and am sharing it with you today.


Check out today's video tutorial to learn how to transform paper into a little work of art.
