News ...

Hi Everybody,

If you are a visitor to my website Card Making Magic ... then you may know that you can download a free booklet if you leave me your email address. It also adds your name to my website mailing list and then you will get a copy of the ezine when I publish one and I try to do that each month.

The last one went out on Friday to almost 13,000 people. In that ezine I told folks that I have been doing some training with YouTube and one of the things they advise "Video Creators" to do is add videos on a regular basis.

Now I must admit that I have been a bit hit and miss with this particular point and have added them as I have gone along. Well all that is going to change and I am now going to add two videos per month on the 1st and 3rd week each month.

So now I can have a mammoth video making session and then schedule them for the designated days and hopefully that will attract more followers to my YouTube channel. At the moment I have 32,735 followers which is absolutely amazing but I would like the channel to grow and get more. Between them they have notched up over 6 million views of my work 

And working on the principal that if you don't ask you don't get .... I am asking all of YOU ... if you are not a subscriber to my YouTube channel yet then will you please become one.

I am at   christina1716  and there is an introductory video if you are a new subscriber.  

The first video for this month will be live this Thursday and it features the Caught In Crystal Technique.

The card shows you what it looks like and it is super easy to do.  The worst part is waiting for it to dry and that is usually overnight.

I hope you will help me to grow the YouTube channel in the coming months

Click this link if you would like to join the mailing list then add your emails address at  Card Making Magic  and then you can follow the instructions to download the free booklet

And there you have two links where you can find and follow me ... and that would be wonderful

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx
