Cristina VintagePink39
Tip: When adding a gift card to the front you can use Zots (clear adhesive dots) to hold the card in place.

Carolyn - Granny Ma's Creations
Tip: when embossing, make sure you use your static-free 'pillow' to rub across card stock.  It does work to keep the embossing powder from sticking where it doesn't belong!

Cindy- In love with PAPER
TiP:  Glue down the front pocket to make it easier to embellish if you're not using it to hold the gift card.

Lynne aka Her Craftiness
Tip: as a sewing and quilter, measure twice and cut once

Sandy- A Working Mom's Joy
Tip: Use double sided paper. They usually coordinate and that way you can save time on layering when you have to make a bunch for the holidays.

Jennyfer - Jennyfer Creates
Tip: Do not hesitate to add a sentiment!

Marilyn - Marilyn's Cricut Crafts
Tip:  Put YouTube videos in your crafting tool box.
They are a great source of information and inspiration.

Teresa-Fresh and Renewed

Tip: You never know when you might need two of something: 
create a second of quick and simple projects.

Now its your turn! Join us for the Tutorial Challenge #6. First, watch the video, then create your own version of the card shown in the tutorial (please try to keep it within the same lines, but your creative spin is what will set it apart!).

My Favorite Craft Tools and Giveaway!!!

Hi everyone, Today's video is a fun one for me. Since getting back into crafting I have noticed that I am pulling certain items over and over again and thought it would be fun to share with you.

TIP:  Easy way to create borders for your scrapbook page layouts, or embellishing the page or creating edges for your cards.  Gives you ease of creating a border across the edge(s) of paper; and create a border strip and cut down to size you would like for embellishing a sentiment mat for a card or front of card.
