Wplus9 Design Clips: Repurposing Scraps

Hey guys! I'm back with another Design Clips Video! A couple of things: I promise to TRY to get better lighting. I promise to TRY to upgrade my camera from a 740HD to 1080HD. And I promise to not be so serious. Ugh. Do you ever watch yourself on video and think, "Who is that?" "What happened to my personality?". I think I'm loosening up some, but still some progress to be made. If you know me, you know that I am rarely serious.

OK, enough babbling. Here's a look at the cards, yes 2 cards, I will be making.

If you have been waiting to see our Chevron Impression plate in action, check it out. I've provided my sandwich construction. Remember, what works for one, may not work for all. But if you are having trouble getting nice deep impressions with the metal impression plates, then this video is for you! At least I hope it is. :o)

Watch above or in HD on YouTube

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  5. I love your projects today Dawn! It's a fabulous idea to use the scraps right away and make a second card, that way you know they'll get used. Thanks for the tip on how you lined up your frame, I've been wondering how you get your images lined up so perfectly! Oh, and I'm a stander too :)

  6. Great cards! I didn't know the tip about lining up stamped images & then die cutting. Thanks! I adore the banner behind the panel on the 2nd card.
