Thank you for your support, the lovely comments you send me, and your kindness!! I’ve been creating videos for over 3 years, and I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of it. I love sharing with you the cards I create! It’s a hobby that involves a lot of fun products, some basic tools and–my favorite–art supplies. As I’ve mentioned before, I love creating these tiny works of art to mail out and brighten someone’s day!
Also, at the beginning of my video I show of few pictures of my craft room, aka my dining room. I don’t have an extra room in my house to use as a craft room, but the dinning room works out great–I have a really big table, I can work on my cards in between cooking in the kitchen, and I get to be near my family. The down side is we don’t eat in there anymore except on major holidays. I try to keep it tidy because it’s visible when company stops by. I’ve mentioned in my past video’s about the gorgeous peonies blooming outside of my craft room windows, and I wanted to share a little glimpse of those too since they are blooming now! The two book cases on either side of my windows house all my supplies, and in my opinion, there’s nothing prettier to look at than art supplies–well, it runs a close second place to my peonies.
The cards I’m showing you today are from Simon Says Stamp’s June card kit. It’s called, “Leafy Frames.” I love the stamps from this kit, and I had so much fun using the products from this kit to design these cards. Links to most of the supplies I used are listed below.
