Thursday's Tutorial

Happy Thursday Fantabulous Friends!!! Can you believe it? We are already in August! This past week/month/year (LOL) has just flown by... seems like they all do, right? Well, keeping that in mind, it's really important to take time out of our busy lives to connect with our friends. Where would we be without them? Our theme this week has been all about friendship so I thought I would post a tutorial or two of some great projects that you can make for your friends to show them that you care. I know I need to take a little time and make a few projects for some friends because I haven't had time to talk to them as much lately because of my illness and the time it has taken away from all my fun stuff that I like to do, including chatting on the phone or having coffee with my best girl friends. Whoa! That was a long sentence. Forgive me for that one! ;0)

What better way to show your friends you love them than by showering them with gifts? :0) I have picked a few different adorable gift idea tutorials for today and hope you enjoy them. I'm sure some of you may have seen a few similar ones and perhaps I might have posted a similar one in the past, but in case you haven't (even if you have) I think you will enjoy these. I sure have! They are just too cute!

The first one I found on You Tube is by Bernadet Rodakowsi of Bernadet's Craft Blog. She is awesome! She's entered some of our challenges and I see she has more of a presence on You Tube than on her blog, so please swing by her blog and show her some love too. Please let her know who sent you! She really has some great stuff on You Tube that you will all want to check out as well.

I thought this would make an awesome card for a friend. It's just so much more special than a standard regular fold card. I hope you love it as much as I do and if you do, please be sure to check out some of Bernadet's other great tutorials!



The second tutorial comes to us from Tammybowstamper. You can find her work by doing a You Tube search. Please stop by and show her some love and tell her who sent you too! This video gives a Fantabulous idea of a perfect little gift to give a friend or two. I have some friends in mind who I would just LOVE to make some of these for.

How cute was that? I am so inspired, I am honestly heading to my craft room right now to get to work! Thanks ladies for your wonderfully inspiring videos.

  2. Bee-utiful hat box slider card. What size were each of your paper pieces of paper on your mat for the 4 shadow cuts? What size did you cut the flower layers at?
