SAB Petal Parade: Make Your Own Pattern Paper Video

Just a note before starting...

If you haven't heard, I've moved, to Plymouth, MN...yay!!  I'm so excited. Took us several months to fnd a place and after looking at over 80 homes, we almost gave up.  But we did find a place and it's a good fit for us.  Family living space up and business space down just 6 steps!  I'm still getting settled in.  Electrician has been here adding light to the "classroom" and will be back next week for additional hallway and studio lights.  Office is usable (need a desk) and studio is coming together.  However - a space to create videos is a ways off.  So I created a makeshift space to do today's video.  Having said that - I think the lighting and sound are off.  But that will have to do for today. 



This was my "old" set up - I took over a closet.  Not sure what my new set up will look like, but hopefully it will get done in the next couple of weeks - crossing my fingers.  I'll share a photo when it's ready.

My first class in the new space will be Tue, March 25th - my popular Card Buffet Class.  Would love to have you come!  Details here.  Below is one of the card offerings.


I got a lot of great feedback about the Sale-a-Bration Petal Parade card I posted a couple weeks back.  When I made that card - I actually stamped an entire sheet of 8-1/2" x 11" cardstock and cut it up in several pieces. This stamping "technique" is often referred to as double-time stamping or one-sheet wonder.  Another way to think about is - make your own pattern paper!

 Today's card is a QC (quick & cute) card using the leftover paper.  However - I also discovered that I can get 8 pieces for this card out of one stamped 8-1/2" x 11 cardstock - woohoo!  They measure 4" x 2-3/4".

  • Start randomly stamping with largest image
