Cardmaking 101

Hi all! Instead of a Make a Card Monday video this morning, I’m taking the opportunity to add a 4-part series on card making for beginners. I get a lot of emails that read, “I want to start making cards. Where do I begin?” So if you’ve ever wanted to start making cards, this will cover the basics and hopefully introduce you to a fun new craft! :)

  4. Wow. After a loong day at work I came home to find a promise of FOUR videos! I was looking forward to the MACM, but this is even better. Thank you. And I just love the scrapbooking pages you’ve been doing for Basic Grey. You are so talented!
