WOW! It's been a CRAZY 2 years....

Today is my 2 year Blog-a-versary and YouTube-a-versary!

It has been a fun, crazy and busy two years since I began sharing my paper crafting work with all of you! The 2.15 MILLION total views and 9900 subscribers on Youtube plus the 750,000 visits and nearly 3000 followers here on the blog have me both flabbergasted and humbled. Talk about exceeding expectations!!

During my Ustream show last night we had a blast with some fun techniques for embellishing tags. In celebration of the my "-versaries", I am giving away 3 of the tags I made last night. I finished them up this morning and they are all signed and dated. I am also giving away a bottle of a fun new product that I tried last night - GooseBumps - by Tsukineko. COOL STUFF! I creates a wonderful orange peel-like glossy surface in a pump spray.

Leave a comment here on the blog to be entered in the drawing. My daughter, Sarah, will choose 4 random numbers at 6pm Pacific tomorrow night.

Here are the finished tags:







Have an awesome weekend....I am working on some new Youtube videos to be posted today or tomorrow.

  142. Happy "versaries"!!! Love, love, love your work! I'm glad you started papercrafting! I have learned so much from watching you. I used to think that mini-albums were a waste of time and only did 12x12 pages. I still do the 12x12 pages but have made many mini-albums. They are fun to make and bring joy to the recipients! I love how you colored the butterfly - just beautiful!! I'll have to try that technique.

  144. Congrats on your anniversaries two years is cotton, maybe you could do something in cotton to celebrate I'd love to see you incorporate cotton into a mini. I've just found you this past month when I started looking into mini's and how to make them, you have already inspired me and I hope you continue to do so for many years to come.
    Yours tags are superb, inspirational and they are all my favorite.

    I loved you ustream on friday. I went to the scrapbookstor that is closing, and it is so strange, I picked up most of the product you used on friday. I love the tags, I have to finish up my rabbit manual first to be able to find my desk. It will be fun making the tags

(Course, I've found I just HAD to buy some of the kits too-because I do believe in supporting independent women business owners who are taking care of family at the same time!!!!)

    Love how the tags came out...LOVE the one about creativity and art the best. I'm looking forward to your new YouTubes too...Thanks for all you do and share. I hope you keep doing it for a good long time!
