Valentine's Day is on the way! 3 Mixed Media card tutorials just for you!


Hey everyone!
It's almost Valentine's Day and to help you get ready I'm sharing
3 (yes 3)
video tutorials on creating one of a kind cards for those special someones.
                             Valentine’s Day is one of the few holidays when I truly enjoy making
                                cards. The stores are full of them but to me, nothing says you’re
                                       special to someone like making a handmade card for them.

Each card has it's on video.
While I use or recommend certain products feel free to make them your own and create as you want.
Remember these are your cards!

The first video is the longest as it shows some of the "stuff" I pull out when creating.
I tend to get a lot on my desk and narrow it down as I work.
If you create something inspired by the videos please share a link.
I love to see what others do.
