Sav Challenges #3 + Tips with Savannah O'Gwynn

Hello, friends:}

Savannah O'Gwynn here today! I'm back and I feel like I'm a bit rusty! So many crazy things happened while recording this video!

I'm sharing how I created these 2 cards for our new neighbors. I'm using up my stash and creating CAS card designs--- that makes these perfect for the Sav Challenges! Kalyn also joined in the fun with my challenge of using up your stash--- HOOOOOORAY! She's our Virtual Smooches Featured Fan of the week! Be sure to check out her project and video HERE

I also share some tips throughout the video; these tips help me when I'm crafting so I thought I would share them with you! Some are old and some are new... hopefully they help you:) 

I also get distracted by Olsen! He runs and hides under my desk when he hears thunder or during a thunderstorm. YUP! You guessed it! There was a storm going on while I was recording- LOL! Anyway... I definitely was distracted by him coming under my desk while recording (there's literally NO room for my feet or body when he's under there! LOL!)!!
Here's the video *****Be sure to change your settings to HD before watching! THANKS!

Using Paper Scraps in Cardmaking

Hi there! Kalyn here, back after a bit of a break. I've been on vacation and moved since I last posted! Lots going on, but I missed posting videos so much! So here's my latest card and video tutorial! It's all about using up paper scraps on a card:

I used the Group Hugs stamp set, the Coffee & Tea dies as well as the Flourishes 1 dies all from Paper Smooches. Watch the step-by-step video below or over at YouTube!

Hope you enjoyed it and this gave you some inspiration to use up those scraps! They can turn into a really cute card if you give it a whirl!

Thanks for stopping by!
