My First Tutorial - My Humble Beginnings - ha

Owl card using Sizzix & Stephanie Barnard matching stamps and dies. I figured I would start my first video EASY - ha.  So, given that I have no idea what I'm doing, or how to edit it you get all the extras; like putting my clear stamp on backwards and getting a blog, my fat arm swinging thru the camera area, and basic fumbling around; but all in all, I'm thinkin' for my first try, not to bad.

Feel free to leave comments - and be brutally honest ;-)  I know I would.

Here's the card I'm making

Products Used:
Autumn Owls Stamps & Framelets set (Sizzix/Stephanie Barnard)
Whisper White & Pool Party card stock (SU)
Soup Labels (Jillibean Soup)
Pale Tomatoe mid-tone, and Cup-O-Joe mid tone inks (Hero Arts)
Cloud Embossing folder (SU)
Ruffled Ribbon - Pool Party (SU)
Big Shot


  1. Congratulations on your very first video! It was so much fun seeing you work just as I do when I am in my craft room. Sometimes we don't get things right the first time so must start over. No big deal. That is how we learn. Your card is very cute and I love the products you used. Now what do you have in mind for your next tutorial! I'll be waiting...

  2. Yay for firsts! I've made a few videos just using my still camera. The last one I made, the camera was stacked on top of an esky, a footstool and a box! It's not what goes on behind the scenes that matters is it? hehehe. I've waved my arms all over the video too. I've only half been in the shot so had to redo the video. The more you do, the less self conscious you get. I edit mine with Windows Movie Maker - the program just came standard with my computer. Pretty easy to use and understand - which is great for me because I am so impatient about learning new things.

    I hope you make more videos - your first one was great!

  3. okay girlfriend, you are the best entertainment ever... but to be honest, I learn something new every time I watch you. So keep bringing us your fun, enthusiastic love of paper crafting!
