Start-to-Finish with Savannah & Olsen

Hello, friends:}

Savannah O'Gwynn here, and today I'm sharing a card that I created from start-to-finish using a couple of my Paper Smooches stamps and dies.

There are a couple of great things about this video: 
  1. Olsen- he needed a card to give to Trav's parents... so he's my inspiration
  2. My commentary- yup! I tried my hand at commentary (or voiceover on this video!)! I didn't want you to sit and listen to just I kept talking:) 
  3. The pictures- you have to wait until the end, but Olsen's pics are just tooooooo cute! 
Here's the video:

Here are some pictures of my card and Olsen: 
Isn't he just the CUTEST?!!?! He really loves his card:)

Thanks for the start to finish video Savannah!! Love the finger tapping ;) Your card is adorable as is Olsen!! He looks like his Oma & Opa wore him out!!! And I am SO with you, I like to work in a clean area. I find that my mojo goes out the window if things are chaotic!!

FABULOUS video, Savannah! It's wonderful to see your card-making process! Your fingers sure know how to do a "happy dance" :) Happy to see Barb's card featured here! Congrats, Barb!

Such a cute card! I love how you show the process of what you did and didn't like, taking things on and off, and Olsen is pretty darn cute!

I loved this video sooooo much - I think it's my favourite one yet - and THAT'S sayin' somethin'!!! You have one of the most unique, fabulous styles "out there" and I've always wondered how you thought through a card to get the results that you do. This was SUCH a treat, Savannah! Loved the commentary too! Thank you so much for putting all the effort into that for us!!!

I also want to thank you so much for selecting me as this week's VS FF!!! I am so honored that you liked my card so much...and I thank you again for sharing your technique!

Love the card and the video. I don't make videos. It must be interesting to actually view one's own creative process. Thank you!
