Paper Bag Mini

Happy Friday everyone!  I have a special treat for you today, I have done my first ever video!  I am part of a group on Facebook called Play Along, and we create the same project at the same time, sharing our creations with each other. 

The first project I made, is a paper bag mini album, based on a series of video tutorials from my fellow Cardz TV Stamps design team member Ginger of My Sisters Scrapper.  I figured a video was the best way to share my creation.  I hope you enjoy!



I actually had a really good time doing the video, I may just have to make another one - at least once I figure out how to free up both my hands :)

Here is a quick peek at the album, but be sure to go to the video to get all the details!





A challenge or two for my awesome album:
Craft Us Crazy - show us your favorites
Crafty Ribbons - buttons
Sarah Hurley Challenges - anything but a card
Through the Craftroom Door - anything goes
Tuesday Throwdown - anything goes
Make It Monday - anything goes
Inspire Me Fridays - anything goes
Whoopsi Daisy - add a tag

A la prochaine...

Michelle, your vid is AWESOME! Nice to put a voice to your blog :) Love your mini album and the dew drops are really cool! Glad you figured out how to mount your iPhone... I have a mount I found for mine on Ebay for $5.00 that hooks it to my tripod for quick and easy vids with 2 hands :) Kathi

Sarah said...

Hi Michelle, a couple of things, your book is amazing. I can't even believe how beautiful it is. You did a fan-freakin-tastic job, lol! The second thing, the iphone really? It turned out great! I could tell you were struggling to work with one hand but really quality was fine and I couldn't believe how still you actually held it while trying to do other stuff. Mine would have been shaking like crazy! Great job I'm completly inspired, thanks!
