    ReplyDelete
  17. What a fun hop, especially since there were some of the best of the best showing off the products. Beyond all of them, I particularly like the CAS styles of Susan Raihala at http://simplicitybylateblossom.blogspot.com/ and Audrie Magno-Gordon at http://www.stampinup.net/. I enjoy creating books and journals, so highly recommend Kiala Givehand at http://www.kialagivehand.com/blog. Check 'em out -- you won't be disappointed.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Oh wow. That's a tall order. So many talented YouTubers. I watch Lindsay, Kristina, and Jennifer, of course. Lately I have been plowing thru Kelly Donovan vids, but maybe she is more mixed media--still paper though. I recommend Jennibellie and Julie Fei-Fan Balzer. And Karen Burniston for her great dies and interactive cards.

    I really appreciated the stencil technique you used on this card. TFS.

  27. Very cute card. I love the way you did the beaver tail. I subscribe to BethsScrapbookRoom which is so fun to listen to. She is very warm and funny. Every month there is a challenge where she collects the projects and sends them to various charities - It feels wonderful to create a project which may go to a hospital, nursing home or people who serve our community. Please visit her. TFS.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Hi! Thank you for sponsoring this hop. I had a lot of fun and picked up some wonderful ideas. The beaver does look a bit clumsy, now that you mention it. But, what a cutie and so fun to color. Some of my favorite bloggers are on the hop, so let me recommend Kristina Werner (www.kwernerdesign.com) and Sandy Allnock (www.sandyallnock.com).

    ReplyDelete
  49. I love the chipboard! Kristina Werner (kwernerdesign.com) is a favorite of mine!

    ReplyDelete
  61. A great tip about the spray adhesive and not letting it be too sticky! Super cute card!
    ~God bless~

  62. I am crazy over that sweet little beaver! I just have to have him! His name will be Fred! Thank you for showing us how to use him.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Awesome card and love the stencil too. I always like Kristina Werner's videos.

    ReplyDelete
  64. The beaver and stamp set is adorable! And your background came out beautiful! Be sure to check out Laura Bassen's site... she's a hoot, as is Lindsey, The Frugal Crafter. Lindsey's older videos are the funniest as she used to add silly and snarky comments in text over the video that were just as entertaining as the actual craft tutorial. Another fav of mine is Jin from Under A Cherry Tree. She has great Silhouette tutorials.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Love the card! I would suggest Grammie2bay on Youtube. She is a hoot! Thank you very much.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Your colouring is incredible, love his little waffle patterned tail!
