Longest Video!

Hello, Crafters.

I hope you're enjoying your weekend. Here in the UK summer 

has popped back again, and, as far as I'm concerned, is 

very welcome to stay until Christmas! ☺

 It won't so I'm enjoying it while it's here! 

Today's video is the longest tutorial I've ever made - it's

1:11:11 long! The reason is that I try to pre-empt questions 

and answer them in during the video. 

To create the actual handbag I showed at the beginning of 

the video, I used our Delightfully Detailed Laser Cut Specialty

 Designer Series Paper (DSP), which I cut and then painted

 with our fabulous new Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint. 

This pack of DSP comes in a pack of eight sheets, comprising

 of four sheets each of two designs. The sheet I had used for

 the handbag has decorative strips along two sides, plus s six

 oblongs that can be used as card fronts.

 The first time I cut one of these sheets I ruined one of the card 

front pieces, which made extremely nervous about cutting 

the rest. I hope that by spending a few minutes at the 

beginning of my video explaining the best way to dissect

 the sheet, it will save other crafters from experiencing

 the same frustration I did!
 For the video I used a different card front design, and I left 

it natural, i.e. unpainted, so you can see the difference

 and make up your own mind which you prefer. Again, 

I wanted to give a short demonstration on how to paint with 

the Shimmer Paint. If you would like to see the video but 

are put off by these first two parts, please fast forward about

 eighteen minutes and that will take you to the box making. 

I have designed this bag to be big enough to hold about 

8 - 12 of our Note Cards and Envelopes, depending on the 

amount of embellishments you add. The overall size is 

5½” x 3 7/8" x 1 3/8" which is a good size for lots of different

 gifts, not least, chocolates! 
In the video I also demonstrated how I put a sheet of Whisper 

White Cardstock behind one of the laser cut card front 

designs before I started painting with the Shimmer Paint. 

The photograph below is the result................ready for 

another project!

That's it from me today. I hope you have a very blessed Sunday,

 and until tomorrow, happy crafting.
