I know this is really crazy ... but I've had my own personal copy of the Butterfly Garden Scrapbook Collection which I created for Pink Paislee, sitting unwrapped on my shelf since it was first published a few months ago!! One of the reasons is that I've been so busy working to deadline on some awesome new collections and I just don't get time to play! But the other is kinda silly ... I was afraid to create something with this collection because it looks so pretty in the packet I was afraid that if I took it out, and started making stuff, I could mess up. Isn't that crazy? I know!
Well, tonight (after months of hesitating), I finally decided to get down and dirty and just GO FOR IT! I've been dying to use the clear stamps anyway, so I just took them out of the packet and started to PLAY. In fact my daughter Georgia and I started experimenting and then decided to make a fun little video about it. It was never meant to be published - OK?! :) It started out as a fun family video ... and here's what we came up with!
I hope you like this easy-to-make gift tag idea and get inspired to create some yourself :) If I can make something like this, then you can do it too!
OH, BTW ... this is my *first ever* crafting video, so *be kind* :):) and don't mind the quality (shot on my Blackberry phone in the bathroom with desk lamps). I promise, I'll get pro at this soon! :)
Here are some preview pics as well ... let me know what you think!
and here is the video tutorial!
