The Latest From My Blog:
I’ve been wanting to do this kind of a story for a long time. I’m totally having fun with the names of the inks used in this handmade card. I also used ribbon and other embellishments from the Dollar Tree and some paper from a 12x12 pad I got at Michael’s called Little Wildflower. This video is meant to be entertaining only. Comments are most welcome! The inks in question are all Distress Inks from Tim Holtz; Abandoned Coral, Fossilized Amber, and Spiced Marmalade.
I ordered a mystery kit from Spellbinders and this sugar skull stamp came with it. I’m in love with this card!
10 Cards from 1 Kit! This month I used Spellbinders Card Kit for March of 2019.
The kit had a Relax and Enjoy theme with beautiful cutting dies to make a cactus complete with flowers, leaves, accents and a pot to put it in! So much fun!
Here’s a video of a card that features The Camel Story, a little prayer/poem used as an analogy for kneeling during prayer. I’m just the messenger! I don’t take one position one way or the other but it might make for some fun comments. Hope you enjoy and you can get free downloads of the tags and sentiments as well as the inserts if you want make your own cards. I got the cutting die from Ali Express a few years ago and I looked for it but couldn’t find one but they do have others now that would work. (FYI, I’ll be doing a video soon on Ali Express.) Thanks so much for watching!
Ink Blending Discoveries with items from Spellbinders and Tim Holtz Oxide Distress Inks
Today I started exploring blending Distress Oxide Inks with some of the items of the Spellbinders Card Kit of the Month, March 2019.
Lots of fun to watch with me chatting away! And I reveal the info about free inserts!
Today I decided to start a new series called “Sobriety Card Saturday”. This way, you’ll know when to expect it and it will keep me on track with this YouTube journey.
The video will show me making a card that would work for people in recovery.
The audio will be me talking about the card I’m making (teaching cardmaking). I’ll then sprinkle it with my personal take on various topics. The topics will be different every week, but they will always be sobriety related They will always be comments from my own real and personal experiences and I suspect they will have a long shelf life. I’m also encouraging questions and answers in the comment section.
The topic for this week is One Day at a Time.
These are some of the products I own and use in my videos.
My Published Books
My personality is quite entrepreneurial by nature, so when I discovered that I could publish my own books using CreateSpace I went to town! I figured I could use what is near and dear to my heart for content and so as a recovered alcoholic, I authored and illustrated 2 adult coloring books with sobriety slogans and sayings as the themes. I also authored one wordsearch book using the 12 steps and traditions of A.A. and a combination trivia/journal book that serves as a journal with prompts that are coordinated with the trivia question of the day. It really does make you think. To those who are offended by me breaking my own anonymity, I say this: “You just never know when someone reading this will be inspired to get sober.”
