Something NEW: In + Out Freebies

Good MORNING and happy Monday! I have been thinking a lot about adding some free videos that include tips and tricks on how I create things in my studio. I think they'll include some card-making tips, basic crafting tips and a little art journaling and other fun things -- who knows what that will include, LoL. I promise, I'll keep it clean, ha ha.

So -- today I am introducing In + Out Freebies. These short videos are little clips I'll share on my YouTube Channel as well as here on my blog. These videos are free and I'm creating them to help promote my classes and how I teach at My Creative Classroom. For these little videos I'll create short 5 to 10 minute clips to demonstrate a particular thing that you might be interested in. Sometimes I might talk -- other times I might just be a fast forward of an art journal page -- or it might be a mixture of both. I won't know until I sit down to make it. I don't know how often I'll make these -- and I don't have a schedule of subjects -- just whinging it as best I can.

Anyway -- I know the suspense is killing you  -- so here's my first Freebie -- how to make an organic, maybe even grungy bow for your cards.


Enjoy -- and please be sure to leave me a comment with any tips and tricks you might be interested in seeing in this In + Out Freebies Series -- I'll be choosing one person to win one of these sweeties -- one of my Sachet Girls Lavender and Buckwheat Sachets.


She's sitting here, on my desk waiting for a new home. I'll choose the winner on Saturday, February 9th. Good Luck! Have a great day -- thanks for stopping by!

    1. Hi Jennie -- no I don't. I tie two or three bows on top of each other!

      Have a great day.

  8. Love it!! Thanks for the video and your generous giveaway. I love your sachets!!! I'd love to see a video on how to make those. Also, if you have any tips on how to organize the million of ephemera and other paper collage pieces. I think the secret is not to have so much, LOL. But I'm sure there are others that are doing a better job of it than me.
