Facebook Live! with Share Sunshine Digital Download and Pressed Petals

 

Oh hey--
 
 
Today I did a PREview and a REview of a couple things.
 
 
And I have to APOLOGIZE right off the bat that this video is not the quality that I had hoped....
 
When I went Live!, I found that Facebook settings changed--and everything either needed to be backwards, upside down OR GREEN!!!
 
 
Everyone that was Live! with me just said to keep going rather than stop and restart in a different format.
 
 
My PREVIEW was a CASE of a card my friend Lisa Marie Smith had made using the Share Sunshine Digital Download--all proceeds going to frontline workers and communities hit hard by the pandemic
 
 
(I'll be using the set more--as promised--on Wednesday. In the meantime, you can download your own by clicking here: https://bit.ly/SUgivesback.)
 
 
My REVIEW was a little bit different version of one of the designs we made as part of the Double Wonder Online Class we did a couple weeks ago.

 

Here's my Live!

 

 

 

 

And here are those details and closeups already--since you couldn't see them well in the video:

Detailed Bee Dies!!

 

Happy weekend people!

 

I have a quick moment for you that I realized yesterday....


PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT:

 

If you want the Bees Dies, GET THEM NOW.

 

They are NOT carrying forward to the new catalog!

 

Honey bee bundle, Golden Honey DSP (SAB), created by Nadine Stolt, www.dazzledbystamping.comThis uses the SAB DSP that is no longer available.

But it was a sample I had using the dies.

 

 

They are not showing as "low inventory" right now, but whenever they're depleted this time, they're gone for good.

 

 

 

The Painted Labels and Poppy Moments are already low inventory.

BUT--they WILL be carrying forward to the new catalog.

Our Double Wonder Card Class

 

Here I am!!

Happy Friday!!

 

I finally have all the things from our Live! Class on Wednesday.

 

Here are my final results:

 

DW.Steph

 

Here's a pic of the template used for cutting the DSP:

 

Double Wonder Template

 

Here are instructions for each section.

They're not in order of the template. Sorry. 

I drew them goofy.

 

Make sure you're looking at both layers of your DSP straight when it's 6" tall.

 

Section 1

  • Cut 4 1/2" off the 12" length. (This section is now 4 1/2" x 6".)
  • Cut the 6" height in half at 3". (Size is 3" x 4 1/2" each)
  • Cut each of those 3 ways at 1 1/2".
  • You should end up with (12) 1 1/2" x 3" strips.

 

Section 2

  • Cut another 4" off the 12" length. (This section is 4" x 6".)
  • Cut 3/4" off  the 6" length.  (This section is 4" x 5 1/4".)
  • Cut the 4" into (4) 1" pieces.
  • You should end up with (8) 1" x 5 1/4" strips.

 

Section 3

  • Turn the 3 1/2" section and cut off (2) 2 1/4" cuts. (Leaves a 3 1/2" x 1 1/2" section.)
  • You should have (4) 2 1/4" x 3 1/2" pieces.

 

Final Pieces

  • Cut in half at 1 3/4".
  • You should have (4) 1 1/2" x 1 3/4" pieces.

 

 

Here are others' versions of the class!

I love how different they look!!

4/22 - FREE Facebook Live! Double Wonder Class

 

JOIN ME FOR A FREE FACEBOOK CARD CLASS!!!

 

YOU bring YOUR supplies, and I'll tell you what to do with them!

 

WHEN: Wednesday, 4/22, 10:30am ET

 

WHERE: right here on my business page...
https://www.facebook.com/DazzledByStamping/

 

WHAT TO BRING--you do NOT have to bring exactly what I use; choose YOUR version of this list:

  • 2 sheets (12 x 12) Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the same package
  • 7 sheets (8 1/2 x 11) coordinating cardstock (1 of them should be Whisper White or Very Vanilla. Since I chose a couple dark colors, I'll want to add white insides later.)
  • ink pad
  • stamp set with words
  • punch to use with the words
  • spool of ribbon + scissors for cutting
  • your Paper Cutter (that fits 12 x 12 DSP)
  • adhesives - SNAIL, Dimensionals, Glue Dots or Tear & Tape

 

Choose YOUR favorites! Bring your coffee or beverage of choice, your snacks and be ready to craft with me!!

 

We'll make 10 cards together with all you've gathered.


My plan is to do a step/get you started on a step and then pull up the camera to check in with you and see if anyone has questions.

 

Then I'll move on with the next step. I'll try to take it at a pace that everyone can keep up. BUT--if I happen to go too quickly or someone gets behind, the video will stay on my page for you to watch again later....and stop/start as needed. I'll also post it here on my blog.

 

 

 

Have a great day!!

 

I'll be back later today with closeups!
