Ohuhu Honolulu 48 Pastel Markers :D

Day 6 of CRaFTi Advent is introducing a set of Alcohol markers that Ohuhu very kindly sent me to have a play with and I have to say that I love them :D  It's a set of Pastel colours which in my opinion are some of the most useful colours you can have, and this set definitely includes some tones that are lacking from my collection, so I'm sure I will be reaching for these a lot as I'm colouring :D :D Christine xxx

Linear Nuvo Drop Backgrounds :D

It's Day 5 of CRaFTi Advent already!! And today I am kind of repeating a technique from a previous tutorial using Nuvo Drops, but this time we're using them to create a linear background and using the excess to create 3 extra backgrounds for cards too :D Hope you like :D Christine xxx

Embossing Powder Moon :D

It's Day 4 of CRaFTi Advent and today's video is inspired by a technique that Fran from Stampedous used to demo about 10 years ago, this is the original video of hers that I saw and I thought it was about time that I gave it a go, I sourced the set of embossing powders and tried the beaches, but for CRaFTi Advent I've started by making these cool moons :D Hope you like it :D I'm sure you could just do this on your hobs in your kitchen too, but for me it's easier to have something separate to use in my craft room so I can easily film video for you :D xxx

Funky Foam Poinsettia Background Stamps :D

Welcome to Day 3 of my CRaFTi Advent series :D This is a technique that you'll find lots of sped up videos on from years ago on my channel, it's one of my favourites! :D And for this advent video I decided to use the technique to make a layered background stamp using Sue Wilson's Fabulous Festive Dies :D :D Enjoy!

Flake & Glitter Glue Foiling :D

It's Day 2 of CRaFTi Advent! :D And today's video shows how to use a homemade stencil plus Cosmic Shimmer Flake & Glitter Glue to foil with :D  It's a great technique if you don't want to use really sticky products with your delicate stencils, you can just create your own stencil so you don't have to stress about being able to get it clean afterwards :D Christine xxx

Embossing With a Stencil :D

Hello :D Welcome to Day 1 of my 2022 CRaFTi Advent series!! :D I've decided to not actually label them as the specific days this year, as most of the videos are tutorials, and it might put people off later down the line if they're called Advent, but I have made all the thumbnails Festive, so that'll be the indicator :D So I hope you enjoy Day 1 :D Christine xxx

Sew Crafty Collection Special Showcase - Tonic CYBER WEEK 2022 :D

The Sew Crafty Special Showcase Collection contains Dies, Stamps, a Stencil and Patterned papers too, and my task for the collection was to create a set of 6 cards, so I decided to do my tutorial on some ways to use the patterned papers with a few of the dies to create a set of 6 cards, 2 of each design :D Enjoy :D xxx

I also have my Up Close video looking at the set, and I show a mini construction for one of the Cotton Reels as well as my little home decor project too :D xxx
