Cards for Guys Video Collaboration

Hey hey peeps.  I feel like I haven't written a post in some time.  I have been very busy lately and again not feeling well.  Trying to push myself has taken it's toll but I've been through worse and I know this too shall pass.

On a fabulous note, I have join up with 26 (YES 26) fantastic YouTubers for a video collaboration to share some guy card inspiration.  I know I struggle to make male themed cards so I was so excited when I was asked if I wanted to join in on the fun.  There are 26 videos for you to enjoy starting May 23rd through June 5th. MayMay Made It was the first one up yesterday and today myself and Shae are sharing our inspiration.  Make sure to visit the daily YouTubers to play along in our game for some great prizes.  We will do this hop style, so you will watch the first video on Maymay Made It's Channel then you will hop to the others using the description box to see who is next. The contest is super fun, each creator will name a tool from their dad's tool box using the alphabet to keep us straight. You can start a list on your paper A thru Z and each time you catch a video write down the tool mentioned in the video. In the last video (Gareth's) there will be a link to a giveaway, you will list the tools you collected to be entered. Open internationally to persons 18 years and over.
Go ahead and subscribe to all these wonderful channels!

Here is the card I made for my video.  Now remember, you must follow along on YouTube to see all the participates and to grab your key words.  Oh this is going to be so much fun!


Okay I'll wrap up my post so you can head on over to my YouTube channel and join in on the fun.  I hope you are overloaded with inspiration for your next guy card.  I'll see you back here soon.


Go forth and be crafty~

ColOWLful Color Pencils Review

Hey hey peeps!  You guys know I'm always on the look out for products that are amazing!  We all know that the coloring craze is still here and not going anywhere. Having the right tools to color is essential.  When I was approached by the makers of ColOWLful Color Pencils, I dug in and did some research.  Some of the things that stood out were these pencils are eco friendly, non toxic and cruelty free for animals. I mean who wants to make pretty things with products that are toxic to us or our kids? No this chick!  I loved their motto so I sent back an email and said I would do a review.


Before I share my video review I'll give you a head up on something.  You are going to want these pencils. LOL  A few weeks back I shared some color pencils I picked up from World Market.  One of the packs are now going to be artwork on my wall.  Quality was not there.  They are really pretty color pencils with no value.  Upon using the ColOWLful color pencils the first thing I noticed was how smooth they colored.  I tested them on several kinds of paper from mixed media, to watercolor and regular card stock.  Also on different coloring books I have and they worked great on all of them.  I love the vibrancy they have and how well they blend.  So let's take a look at the video.



And lastly the price point on these artist quality color pencils are only $14.95.  Fantastic price for the quality that you are getting with these pencils.  Now since I've given you the scope, head on over to Amazon and pick up your pencils today.  You won't be sorry. Also take a look at their blog and website.  They offer you free downloads for you to color.  Have a great Thursday everyone and I'll see you back here soon.

Go forth and be crafty~

Rainbow Fun - TUTORIAL

Hey hey peeps.  As promised I'm back with a video using the Joyful Sentiments stamp set just released from Brutus Monroe.  I shared a card last week on release day but I promised to share a video on how the card came together.  So here is the card I made using the Folk Weave stencil along with some distress inks.  I love making rainbow colored cards.  I used my favorite sentiment from the Joyful Sentiments set.  I love the font we used on this stamp set.


Here is another card I made using the same stencil but with a different sentiment.  This sentiment is from the Spring Garden stamp set that was also released over at Brutus Monroe.


So are you ready to see the video?  Sit back and relax while your eyes get ready for a gorgeous rainbow background.  I'm sure you're going to love this video (if I say so myself).  ;-) If you are looking to purchase the distress inks they are available over at Blitsy. Feel free to use my link on the side of my blog.  The stamps, stencil and embossing ink is available at Brutus Monroe.




Have a fabulous day everyone.  I'll see you back here soon.

Go forth and be crafty~
