You Deserve It All with Pinkfresh Studio


Hi friends! 
I'm back with another video on You Tube and Instagram showing how I created this card. During the intro, I will also show you a card with a similar background but in shades of green. A pic of this is below.

It's funny, one day I just got the urge to swipe a full ink pad across some cardstock, and then ended up doing three shades, and I liked the results. What I forgot to mention in the video, is the splatters. After I had created those backgrounds, I then used some watered down white paint and gave them a good splatter. It did add an extra something, something actually so it was a good move.

I hope you enjoy the video, and the relaxing music that goes with it...relax with your favourite beverage and get inspired.

Love You Pretty with Pigment Craft Co.


Good morning crafty friends

I am sharing this very pinky card with you today. That incredible background was achieved using the Latte Heart Background Cover Plate by Pigment Craft Co. This company is Canadian! That is quite lovely for me because while I will always support any craft company the best way I can, it is nice not to have a long wait to receive an order and pay silly delivery prices, with the risk of import charges too. Pigment Craft Co. is new and my observation of their designs are elegant and sophisticated...just like me! Hahahahaha. Well, I like pretty, elegant designs when I create (with some cutesy thrown in), and I enjoy using PCC goodies, so it's a win/win!

I have downloaded a video on my You Tube channel, downloaded an IGTV video and created a reel on my Instagram! Phew! I don't have time to do all three all of the time each time I create a card, but I wanted to give Pigment Craft Co. a big shout out to show my support. 

Below there is the link to my You Tube video, but also pics of two other cards I created using the same background cover plate. Hopefully they demonstrate its versatility as a stash staple!

Joyful Bouquet with Pinkfresh Studio


Hi friends!

I posted this card all the wrong way around. What I mean by that is, I posted it on Instagram, but then realized I had also filmed myself making it for my You Tube channel! So, I look like I am double posting, not really my intentions, but probably gives an insight into my brain crazy 😂

Today's You Tube video and chat is all about this card that I created for a dear colleague who is retiring this month. I had to get it made and get it out to the team so it could get signed. I think 'my flow' was out of whack which may be why I feel a bit out of sink. Hey, least I have it up on my channel now. 

I have to say, I am pretty proud of it and how it turned out. Though to be fare, Pinkfresh Studio have brilliant products, so its not that hard to create with them!

The link to my YT video is below...I hope you enjoy it.
