Thank you, and have a super week!

Too early for Christmas?

Hi Everyone, Hope your week is starting off well !! So, I have been doing videos for www.AllFreeChristmasCrafts.com since the beginning of this year, and viewers were telling me that it was too early to think about Christmas....well....it's JUNE, and suddenly, I don't think it is too early to start anymore!! Plus, I have heard of some people who shop for Christmas gifts ALL YEAR LONG(like me!). So, if you can start on gifts early, why not? I for one, have always waited until the last minute to MAKE gifts, but not this year! I will have them all made early! So, below is a photo of an Altered, Upcycled Charger Plate I bought at my local thrift store.  I really like how it came out and hope you do too!! Watch for the video on my You Tube Channel.

Oldies but Goody Days....

Hi Everyone,
Since I have been crafting for so long, it's fun to remember an old technique and use today's fabulous papers and products. I remember when I first started cardmaking, there weren't very many colors or patterns of paper. So, we used lots of different techniques to change a solid piece of cardstock to give it a fun look. Do you remember those days? Today, there are so many colors, and patterns of paper that we have endless options! Anyhow, in this video, I show you how to make an oldie but goodie pop-up card. Hope you like it!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VG-C92-IR3E
