Clip Decorations PART 3 (Clip Dangles) with Savannah O'Gwynn

Hello, friends:}

Savannah O'Gwynn here today sharing part 3 of my "Clip Decorations" video series!!! 

I love how easy these are to make! And I LOOOOOOOOOOOOVE that I used a PS circle die found in the Get Outta Town Icons set--- sometimes all you need is a die cut:) This little circle die was a perfect match for this dangle jewelry piece. 

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

I hope that you are inspired to make some of your own clip dangles... or some of the other clip decorations that I've made [click HERE for part 1 or HERE for part 2 of this video series].

Clip Decorations PART 2 (FUN clips) with Savannah O'Gwynn

Hello, friends:}
Savannah O'Gwynn here today sharing PART 2 of my "Clip Decorations" video series! Click HERE for PART 1 Epoxy Clips. Or click HERE to watch it on YouTube

These FUN clips are super easy to make! And they really are so fun--- my favorite is that cactus!!! OH MY! SOOOOOOOO cute:) I do share a couple of tips in my video--- nothing fancy, but these tips help me make some great FUN clips 😊  

Here's the video *****Be sure to change your settings to HD before watching! THANKS! 
Annnnnnnnnnnnnd here are some cute pics of my little friends Isaiah and Caleb. They are using that super man clip (also known as "Super Jordan") while reading a book. Jordan (their brother) was a bit camera shy. 😉   The great thing about that "Super Jordan" clip is that it has double duty- 1. it's a bookmark and 2. the kids can use it to point to words while reading! BONUS:) 
I hope that you are inspired to create your own FUN clips!!! And don't forget to come back next week for part 3 of my video series;)

Clip Decorations PART 1 (Epoxy Clips) with Savannah O'Gwynn

Hello, friends:}

Savannah O'Gwynn here today sharing part 1 of my NEW video series "Clip Decorations". 

I am currently obsessed with creating different clips and decorations for my Bible, journals, SAVdoris (more for sale coming SOON!), and books! This first clip is super easy to make and can be customized using different Paper Smooches stamps, images, and sentiments! There are so many PS stamps that can fit in that 1" circle!!!  Annnnnnnnnnnnd these are perfect for children to make! 

Here's the video *****Be sure to change your settings to HD before watching! THANKS! 
I hope that you are inspired to create your own epoxy clips and that you will come back next week for part 2 of my new video series:) I actually might have the video posted sooner... but you never know! Maybe I should just stick to posting on Thursday next week! LOL!

Wine Glass Shaker Card (using water) with Savannah O'Gwynn

Hello, friends:}
***Let me start by wishing my big bear a HAPPY 8th BIRTHDAY! Love you so much, Olsen Bebo O'Gwynn! My favorite pictures of him would be from THIS Virtual Smooches video back on his 5th birthday! LOL! Too funny! 
Savannah O'Gwynn here today sharing a fun shaker card using water!!!! I finally figured out how to create a water shaker card using a plastic baggie and the Paper Smooches Wine Glass die! 
This video is a bit long... but that's because I had a few hiccups! I cannot believe that I messed up on "live" video! I cannot even believe I forgot to add the back piece of the cardstock to the cardbase. OY! Here's the video *****Be sure to change your settings to HD before watching! THANKS! 

I hope that you are inspired to create your own water shaker card---- maybe use this idea for an underwater themed card or for a jar with some die cut flowers! FUN x10000000000 :)

PS March Challenge (and tips) with Savannah O'Gwynn

Hello, friends:}
Savannah O'Gwynn here today sharing a fun start-to-finish video and card for the PS March birthday challenge! The best part about this card is that it doesn't say "HAPPY BIRTHDAY"!! You don't have to use that sentiment to make a birthday card!!! :)

I love this card- it's so simple and perfect for my friend/trainer, Tony!
This card is actually for three challenges (in the video I say 2... but I think it fits 3 now that I'm writing up my post! LOL!): PS March birthday challenge, Sav Challenge #1: using up your stash, Sav Challenge #2: masculine cards!!!!!! LOVE that! 

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

I hope that you are inspired try some of my tips and card creation! ANNNNNNNNNNND I hope you will join in the fun with the PS March birthday challenge! You could WIN a $50 Paper Smooches gift certificate! ***Oh how I wish I could win! I have such a large list of stamps/dies that I want:)

Layered Die Cut Valentine with Kalyn Kepner

Hey Virtual Smooches friends, Kalyn here wishing you a Happy Valentine's Day! And, of course, I have another Valentine's Day card to share along with a tutorial video!

For this card, I wanted to combine lots of patterns and die cuts. I used the Scalloped Circles dies, the Just For You Icons dies and the Adorable Array die. I also used the Lots of Love stamp set. Take a look at the video below or over at YouTube to see how it all came together:







I hope you enjoyed my card tutorial and that you have a lovely Valentine's Day! Sending lots of hugs your way!

Kalyn
