Video: Foiling w/out a Laminator or Minc Machine

Hi there crafty friends!  I have something SUPER fun to share with you today!  

Foiling is so HOT right now in the paper crafting industry, and I want to show you how you can add this to your projects without having to purchase anything extra besides the foil.  

You will be foiling like crazy - just like I have been!  Here's your how to video:

Isn't that foil absolutely SHINY???  I can't get enough of it.  

Here is another one, using the same technique with the 2-way glue pen.  You just need an image that's big enough to color in with your glue.  Allow it to dry and apply the foil with your Big Shot.  SOOOO SIMPLE!!!  

This one uses the foil with the Tear & Tape.  Again - super simple and you get this FABULOUS shiny accent.

I hope that you will give this a try on your own projects!  Please, let me know what you think - do you like this???  Leave a comment below!

Video:Pyramid Pals Thinlits - Easy open twist for Valentine's

So.... You are on the fence about the Pyramid Pals in the Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog?  Think they look complicated.  

Well.  Think again.  

They really go together pretty fast and my 5 year old made 5 little puppy Pyramid Pals today to get a jump start on her Valentine's.  She wanted to make them herself.  So, I provided a little guidance, and she did the rest.  

What's that got to do with anything?  If my 5 year old can put them together, so can you! 

The nice thing - they don't have to be little critters.  Today I'll show you a couple of options (video included!)

The one above holds a sucker.  (kinda obvious, right???)

The one below can hold any treat you'd like.

And here's a video to show you that they come together quite simply.  The video shows how to create both samples shown here.

Just think of all of the fun ways you can decorate these?!?!

If you like today's project - leave me a comment so that I know I should create more things like this!
