Sometimes the best plans aren’t enough

This blog post should have been out last week to accompany my Thursday night live demo. I had everything planned out BUT one thing I didn’t plan on was lossing internet service! Yup at 7:00 pm Eastern last Thursday, just as I was getting set to go live, our internet went out. No big deal I thought it’s just a glitch and will be back on in a minute. Nope – we were out from 7 pm on Thursday until 4 am on Friday (or so I was told).

Seems our internet service provider, a small local company, needed to swap out servers to handle the increasing customer base (yay for small business growth!) So the demo I had planned for Thursay night didn’t happen until today. But better late then never right?

An Open Secret

Hi, my name is Judy and I’m a Designer Series Paper (DSP) hoarder. Anyone else out there who can relate? I just love pretty paper and love to use it to create pretty cards. I love it even more then the DSP can carry the whole design and be the focal point of the card.

And with Stampin’ Up! currently running a sale on select DSPs, I thought this month would be the perfect time to highlight uses for it and use some of my stash. So my focus for this demo was to use DSP to create quick, easy, and pretty cards that have a little bit of a wow factor. Check out the two from this week’s live demo.

Check out my video tutorial on my Crafty Klock YouTube Channel to see how I made the pinwheel card. Hint – it’s easier than it looks!
