Fabric Feathers (ANOTHER fashion accessory) with Savannah O'Gwynn

Hello, friends:}

Savannah O'Gwynn here, and today I'm sharing ANOTHER feather accessory-- this time I make a necklace using fabric feathers! LOOOOVE! **I found THIS tutorial for making fabric feathers and using wire to make the necklace pieces.... it's WAY too advanced for me! So I made this video to share an easy way for non-jewelry makers (like myself)!!! 

Here's the video *****Be sure to change your settings to HD before watching! THANKS!

Gift Bags with the Hot Spots Small Base Die


Hi, it's Emily Leiphart here and I'm sharing a how-to on making large and small gift bags with the Hot Spots Small Base Dies. This die is most commonly used to create scene cards but you can get more out of your dies by thinking out-of-the-box or, in this case, in the box! ;)


To create the boxes, you need to die cut the die twice. For the middle section, which I call the container strip - since it houses the treats/toys/greeting cards - complete instructions and measurements for both versions can be found in my video.




These gift boxes are so easy to whip up for last-minute gift-giving! You could make these for any occasion in a variety of themes.


Stay tuned for more gift box ideas with the Hot Spots Large Base Dies!

Trav's Card Style #2 (breaking the rules) with Savannah O'Gwynn

Hello, friends:} 

Savannah O'Gwynn here, and today I'm sharing another quick start-to-finish card with you!! Since I'm still over in Israel, I needed something quick to make! Trav's Card Style is the perfect design for this quick video:) 


I have to be honest... I do NOT like Trav's Card Style-- it's sooooooooo boring! There's nothing to it! SOOOOO plain! So I kind of broke the rules (i.e. "stamp ribbon done") for this creation! LOL!
