Some News ....

Hi Everybody,

This has been a really busy week for both my "Film Crew" and me as we have been creating videos to add to my YouTube Channel  and I hope you will enjoy them if you pop over to view. Altogether I have done nine projects but they are for a special reason.

One of the exciting new things to happen to me in the past few weeks is that I have been approached by Practical Publishing to create videos using the free gifts that come attached to their magazines. The videos that have gone out are for mags that are currently on sale in the UK and the gifts are a lovely addition to your crafting "Stash"

I will be doing these regularly and adding them to YouTube. So why not pop over there and subscribe to my channel so that  you never miss one

The magazines that I have featured are ...

Simply Cards & Papercrafts  (SC&P)
Papercraft Essentials     (PE)
Die Cutting Essentials  (DCE)
The Cardmakers Collection  (TCC)  which is complete kit.

If you wanted any of these magazines then visit More Mags  and save money on your subscription and get it delivered to your door each month.

The first two videos are using the Butterfly stamps, dies and embossing folder that came with SC&P 151 and PE 134 and I have tried to use different ideas than the ones in the magazine.

The second group of three are using the Build a Cupcake kit in TCC 5 and these are really some fun ideas for this set

I have also added a video using the free Sue Wilson die Delicate Adornments that is with DCE 12
And last but not least the third set of videos use the Totally Tropical Stamp, Die and embossing folders that came with PE 135 and I have used this set in ways other than their intended

I have also added three more for the Craft Stash website and as soon as I have the links for them I will pass it on to you.

So twelve videos in less than a week has been one mammoth task and there is more to come in the future.

I will add all the individual links to each of the videos in to the  Video Tutorials in the title bar at the top of each page

Wish me luck on yet another new adventure 

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  14. Great Morning Christina :) OMG...AWESOME News!! They couldn't have picked a finer person and crafter to do this!! I am sooooooo happy for you Christina. Well... I'd say your day is now PERFECT! Thank you for all you do for us. Big Hugs!

  15. Hi Christina,
    First of all, congratulations on becomming the official videographer for PP, I'm looking forward to all the great ideas you'll be coming up with. You and Griff have been really busy this week with all the great videos. I think I have to say that I love the card with the banners on using the freebie from PE 135 the best. Would you belive that PE is the subscription that I had to give up when I started with Die Cutting Essentials as I couldn't afford to have three subscriptions on the go...so I've had to place an order for the issue with the Totally Tropical Stamp, Die and embossing folders so that I can try and make something similar :). I hope you're able to put your feet up today to recharge the batteries ready for whatever you have in store for us next week. Sit down and watch the tennis for a bit and enjoy your Sunday :)
