Safari Toilet Paper Roll Mini Album with Bind-it-All

Safari Toilet Paper Roll Mini Album with Bind-it-All

As I am finishing up my Bind-it-All classes at My Creative Classroom, I enjoyed making this little Toilet Paper Roll Mini Album for an eleven year girl that I just met. The paper came from The Paper Studio Safari Untamed Stack. Both of my girls loved pink, purple and zebra print growing up, so I am hoping this young lady does as well. Her family makes it habit to recycle and upcycle, so this makes a perfect gift for her.

Paper Bauble Flowers Tutorial

Paper Bauble Flowers Tutorial

After finishing my first real binding project for the Bind-it-All class that I am taking online at My Creative Classroom, I decided to embellish it with one of my handmade vintage-gungre-shabby-chic bauble flowers.

These are so much fun and easy to make, so I thought it was a perfect opportunity to try my hand at another YouTube tutorial video. After completing the video I came to the conclusion that I…
#1 need a script and
#2 talk entirely too much
The video ended up being around 20 minutes long….which resulted in editing it into two seperate videos. Instead of bringing subscribers and followers to my YouTube Channel and Blog it will probably send the masses to the streets in protest against my membership to blogdomhood and YT.

Nevertheless, I have spent an entire day video recording and editing the videos….so I am darn well going to share them…haha!

And the second half is here….if I haven’t lost you already!

Scraftin’ Haul from the Antique Shop

Scraftin’ Haul from the Antique Shop

Last week, I had an opportunity to hit a few thrift shops and the antique store in the next town over. The antique store has had everything on at 50% off for sometime now, but this is the first time I have ever purchased anything. It never occured to me to search for vintage scraftin’ (my new word) stuff at an antique shop before. After this haul, I am wondering what all I have missed at every other shop I have visited.
I was so inspired that I decided to video my treasures and upload it (after 24 hours of trying) to youtube. Being self-conscious, I can readily point out all my mistakes and play games with this video….like…how many times can you say “ummm” in five minutes? or what the heck is that accent? can this woman even talk?
So I share with you now…will all its flaws…my very first Simply My Crafts video……
