I'm going to start out today's post by saying WOW. Again. You all seemed to really enjoy the Mass Producing Birthday Cards Video Tutorial from Monday! Yes?
One thing I heard was that it was a great reminder that we don't have to continually out-do ourselves and make magnificent pieces of artwork that take hours every time we sit down to the stamp table.
There is a time and a place for magnificent pieces of artwork, don't get me wrong! It's just nice to remember, that even simple cards ARE pieces of art and brighten someone's day just as much.
I took Alana to the doctor this morning (she's had wheezing and breathing issues on and off since she was a baby…a breathing treatment and she was good to go…home from the doctor, mac n cheese for lunch and straight to school with her! I digress.) and I was thinking,
"What if I made this a weekly feature and archived them all together in one category on my blog for future easy reference?"
What do you all think? Would that be useful to you?
If yes, leave me a comment and let me know what you think I should call it!
With that, on to todays card and video:
Mass Producing Masculine Cards Video Tutorial!
I was asked by a few stampers to take one layout (or sketch) and show a few different ways to embellish it. Ok! This layout is the same as Monday's but it looks quite different, doesn't it? It's also the same layout as the card from my newsletter yesterday.
