Toot Your Own Horn....every once in a while!

I am sooo excited about this little surprise I have for you. Over the last year I have spent a great deal of time on this here computer. It provides me with fabulous inspiration and I have enjoyed and learnt a whole lot from video tutorials on other people's blogs. So when I joined Stampin' Up and began this 'blog journey', I have had it in the back of my mind that I would love to provide my customers with these sorts of tutorials.

TA DA!! Today I fiddled and played and figured out just how to do it. YAY! I am a little bit proud of myself, I must say. Now, please be is amateur and I need some (read 'A LOT') of practice but I do hope (and feel) that these video tutorials will help you in your paper crafting journey.

The first video I prepared covers the Stampin' Up Heat & Stick Powder and the Dazzling Diamonds glitter. This is one of my favourite techniques and I know quite a few of you have purchased these items just recently. I DO NOT WANT THEM TO SIT IN YOUR CUPBOARD GATHERING DUST! Now you will have this reference to come back to whenever you feel the need to 'glitter' something. I hope you enjoy and please feel free to leave any comments (please be kind though! LOL!)

Little user hint: Pause the video while it completely downloads and it will play a lot smoother.

All products used are Stampin' Up products. If you are interested in purchasing anything you have seen or would like to learn first hand how to do this technique, please do not hesitate to contact me at I am only too happy to help.

Bye for now,
