My attempt at making videos with youtube

I'm taking the plunge, at my old age of video-ing on youtube.com.  I'm practicing and I have a small video clip of our trip to DeSoto State Park near Fort Payne, Alabama (home of Alabama singers)...



Enjoy and God bless and have a blessed day.

A Quilted Birthday Card

I have been purchasing card kits from a Facebook group page for the past 6 months and with the financial strain I'm experiencing right now, and I do create cards for enjoyment, I got to thinking, I can create these same type of cards using Pinterest to find patterns for quilts.

I found this pattern on Pinterest, don't know who it belongs to, and apologized for that, but here is the card I came up with.----


Using my Make the Cut software, I traced the template and saved it.  After saving it, I created the svg file from that, and broke the template down so I can get the quilted pieces.

I cut two templates (4.25 x 4.25 I believe) gluing the white template onto a black cardstock and place the individual pieces on the matching place.  Than glued the pink template over the top of the pieces/white template.  (To me it looks more neater than placing the pieces onto the top of the framed quilted template!!).

The Happy Birthday title I found (for free with a subscription) on Cricut Design Space.  I decided, rather than cut out in white and color in, I would cut the title out like it was shown in the picture.

Thank you for stopping by to visit with me today, and God's blessings to you all.

6x9 Printable Envelope Album or Junk Journal


Happy Wednesday to you all from rainy Alabama, once again raining.  Don't know if it's the effects of Hurricane Harvey (have a step-brother by that name!!) but it's raining.

I have attached a video from jenofeve designs of the project I am making, which her patterns are hand cut and I am retweaking the templates so I can cut out with my Silhouette or Cricut.




 This is the front of what I am calling the cover page, using white card stock as the base (from Wal-mart, but I would recommend card stock that is heavier than what I used.).  This is spread out so you can see the entire cover.
 This will be the front of the cover, using paper from a paper pad that I have had in my stash like forever.
This will be the back cover, once again using what I have in my stash of paper.

I created the base and mats using my Silhouette Design Studio, paint.net and Make the Cut software.  Than loaded into my Cricut Design Space and cut out the base and mats.  I used Artist Glitter Glue (the best glue there is) for adhering the mats to the base.

Even though the title says 6x9 envelope, I don't believe mine is that size - a tad bid smaller, which is normally not what size I make.  I like them bigger and I will work with that later.

This template is available in her etsy.com store and you will be able to obtain the link under her youtube.com video for this project.

Thank you for stopping by and have a blessed Labor Day weekend, and be safe.
