Watcha TOOTIN' About?

Today is my day for a tutorial over on Club Anya & Friends! I chose to do my first tutorial on tying bows:) It's the one most asked for so I finally got a video camera made specifically for You Tube videos and got crackin! Hope you enjoy these videos:)

First video shows how to create bows with a bow easy. Here's a card with an example bow easy bow on it. The cute little dude stamped here is from OA Just For You!:
And the tutorial:

Next up is my poofy "Amber Bows" that I get most comments on! Here's an example card using sassy Cheeky Rockabilly:

And here's the tutorial:

And my last one is how to my my poofy multi-loop wrinkle ribbon bows! Here's an example of what I'll show you, card uses "Just For You":

And here's the video!


Well there you have it! My very first videos:) I was SO nervous making them and felt so SILLY talking to myself, so I tend to ramble and say stupid stuff which I'm sure will entertain you, lol! Hope you enjoy these videos and that they can help you if you struggle with tying bows!

If you want to play in our WTW Challenge, to create a card with a BOW on it, hop on over to the CA&F Blog for details!
Thanks for stopping by:)

Amber, these are fab! Thanks for taking the time to make and post them! I know I've been one of the Amber-wannabes asking about your bows. I especially enjoyed hearing your sweet voice! Now I fell like I almost know you IRL!

Got my PTI order today. Can't wait to play with those ornament stamps. But I've been sick, sick sick. Long story. But I really should turn off this iPad and try to sleep. It's 1:30 AM!
