Many thanks to you all for the love and support you have shown me and my family during our recent bereavement. It has been a very difficult few days but praise the Lord for supporting us. Yesterday I did my first bit of crafting and made a video for today. I chose a card I shared about ten days ago.
I’m looking forward to getting back to “work” on Monday but it will be on a part-time basis. If you have been following me for quite a long time, you will have heard me say something similar on at least two previous occasions. As you know, back then, my new plans lasted two or three days and I then was back into my old ways – I couldn’t keep away!
My plans are to work four days a week which will include making my video for Sunday. Until I try this I don’t know how it’s going to work out but I can do some fine tuning as I go along if necessary. I expect to be posting on my blog four times a week sharing new cards with you and keeping you up-to-date with what’s going on in Stampin-Up-Land!
In today’s video, I have explained about using one-sixteenths of inches. I have always tried to avoid them because I know a lot of people – crafters and non-crafters – don’t understand them in the same way I don’t understand centimetres! Fortunately, the Stampin’ Up! trimmer (as well as most other trimmers, I believe) do show sixteenths of inches.
In my video, I kept it very basic and didn’t get involved in explaining how many sixteenths there are in a quarter of an inch, how many in half an inch, etc. I also demonstrated how to identify which poinsettias could be die-cut from the Designer Series Paper (DSP). Fortunately the Poinsettia Place DSP is one of the packs that are available in the October sale! What a result?
Once again, many thanks for your very kind words of love and support for me during the difficult time I have been through. I shall be forever grateful. May God bless you all. I look forward to start building my new routine beginning tomorrow morning. I wish you a very blessed Sunday and I look forward to being back with you tomorrow. In the meantime, please take care and stay safe. Happy crafting.

Evening Jan. Thank you for sharing a video on this most darling card. I love it so much that I have just ordered the bundle together with a discounted Poinsetta DSP. This card is just so elegant and it screams you! Thankfully I have never had problems with 16ths – think it is because I am an older lady and this was taught at school. Blessings and Warm Hugs to you, Othman and your Family. XXX M
Hi, Mal. It’s a fabulous bundle! I’m so pleased 16th’s aren’t a problem. I have always tried to avoid them but I really wanted to do the very thin edging! xx
Nice to have you back Jan I missed you.
Look forward to watching the video later.
Bless you, Ann and thank you. It’s lovely to be back. xxx
Love you, Jan. Here for you, even though we may be an ocean away.
Love you too, Kimy and thank you. xx
