On the up-side, this week I'm having a weekend special - a tutorial on Friday, Saturday and a diffrent video on Sunday - yay!
I'm sort of in a rush at the moment, as usual, so I'll leave it at that.

Hi everyone!
Just a quick post today - just an update on what I have been doing on YouTube really.

I posted another 'requested video' (although a little later than planed) for Leonorasshows. This weeks vid was an UPDATED craft room tour - which I have been meaning to do for AGES, but havent gotten around to it, so this request was a push in the right direction!

I also answered Sophianna's questions for her magazine, in a video. I am really privileged to be able to be featured in her magazine.
She still as one spot left - for a YouTube crafter to have their interveiw posted on her Magazine...so check out her YouTube channel (Sophiannadesigns) and send her a request.

Apart from that, I will be having a - wait for it - COMPETITION!
More info on that will be posted tonight, so check it out!

I'll be posting the Friday tutorial as well, tonight or tomorow, so keep watching!

- Savannah :)

Sunday, June 7, 2009

Hi everyone!
I hope the requested video was helpful for some of you =]
As promised, heres the template. I'm just going to give you the link, so that you can save ut to your computer, and then re-ajust the sizing to suit.
I'm sort of in a rush this morning - so I'll leave it at that.

Thanks for watching, have a great day!

Hi everyone!
(Just quickly, I start my vid's with that every time - leave suggestions for new opening phrases in the comment's)

Anyway, I had fun making this card. Simple, but cute - and YES using more KRAFT CARDSTOCK!
Thank You so much to Chelle (Youtube user - ChelleBB) who saw my video saying I was desperate for more kraft, and so kindly donated her spare 10 sheets to me =]
So, Chelle, keep checking the mail - I'm sure this card will be familiar to you very soon.

In the next week, I'm going to me making some 'requested' videos - so stay tuned.

And lastly, I'm going to leave you with a pic of this weeks card, as well as last weeks card - forgive me for not posting it last week!

Thanks for watching!
- Savannah :)

wow, what a week! I'v been super busy...with everything, I'm really looking forward to the weekend!

Anyway, with this weeks tutorial, I wasn't too sure where I was going too start with, but it got there - and I think it looks fabulous! I stared with a 7-1/4 by 3-3/4 Kraft cardstock base (that reminds me, when I say those measurements, I mean unfolded, not folded) - but as seen in the tutorial, I trimmed the edges by around 1/4 inch. The stamping was using VersaMark ink, and embossed in clear embossing powder. I know I embossed before I started filming, but ya'll know how to do that anyway...I hope. I was thinking of making a embossing tutorial, so I can emboss before tutorials more often (it takes too long!. In addition to that, I used 'Basic Grey's Lime Ricky' papers for the first time - they're so fun and bright!
So, anyway, just to clear some things up - which, as you can tell, I am never able to do properly on a video...haha.
Tutorials will be 'Friday tutorials' - so where ever you live in the world, thats what it's called anyway! Clearer pictures of the finished card will be posted on this blog...either before or after the video has been posted.

Thats all for this week =]
Have a great Weekend!

Hi Again!
So, this week, I am again using one of the glitter die-cuts from the - Making Memories 'Just Chillin Girl' Pack - and another butterfly.
I think I'm ready to admit I'm obsessed with these products. They're just so 'light hearted' and fun - which reminds me, I'm in need of another stamping video.
I'm thinking this is going to be for my besties B'day (lol, I'm only 8 hours older than her) on Friday *wink*...
Anyway, as I said in the video, the ribbon was from a drapery (wow, does that word even still exist?) down the road and was only 30cents a metre!! Same with the orange button (no, I didn't just buy the orange ones).
Oh well, its late, and I'm in need of some sleep - twitter me!

Color Inspiration #50

This weeks 'Color Inspiration' challenge was an unusual mix of colors. I would have never put them together, and to be honest, was not looking forward to using them. Not that that would bother me - up for grabs is a $75 TwoPea's voucher!!! But, I would have to say I L O V E the finished product!
I had to pull an 'O' of another card I had made, but it looks alot better on this one (lol).
Thanks for stopping by - Have a great weekend!
- Savannah :)

Hiya Everyone!
Just a quick post this evening (I say that everytime I know). I'v been doing a 'series' of quick, pocket thank you cards. I acctually made a collection for YouTube, but the lighting wasn't that good, and the camera battery kept running out (you know how it is, murphy's law effect) so I deleated them. I'v just posted two of my favourites on here.
On the other hand, my Two Pea's order arrived! $80 and not alot of stuff. Oh well, I LOVE it! I'm going to put a few cards on Etsy that I have made using my new supplies - or maybe not (can I bear to part with my beautiful creations?! lol). The last card I sold on Etsy was my favourite and I was so sad to see it go... And you know whats really fun? Alchemy (on Etsy), and it's great for me, because if someone offers $15 for something, I get $30 kiwi dollars - shotties!!!

Anyway, thats all (I told you I'd be quick)
Have a great week!
- Savannah ;)

Good Morning All!
I hope you're enjoying your weekend. Today's card features an element I haven't used before in a tutorial, baby. I happened to have KaiserKraft's new baby range of paper, so I decided to use it in this tutorial! I'm not so excited about the colours though - not exactly very 'babiesh', and, as I mentioned in the video, they are hard colours to pair up with a card base. The only thing I didn't like about the card, is the number I put on it, 3. This card is really for a 'baby', I should have put 1 on it. That's easily changed.
Anyhow, that's all. I'm thinking of doing a competition soon...I haven't had many successes with my previous ones :(
As always, thanks for watching, see ya soon!
- Savannah ;)

Thursday, April 16, 2009

Hey Everyone!
Well, as promised, here are all the pics from Cynthia's parcel, as well as the card I made for her (which I sen't this afternoon). If you haven't already, check my video on YouTube.
So that's all really, hopefully I can do a tutorial tomorow - see ya soon!

Good Evening All!
I hope you have all had a wonderful weekend, and wonderful Easter if you celebrate it. We had great weather here in Christchurch so it was nice to have some free time outside for a bit.

Anyway, I'v just got a pocketcard for you this week, quick and simple! I find it quite challenging to complete a card (and make it look good) in 10 minutes. It would be alot easier if I could cut and edit my videos. Oh well, I like the challenge!

Slowly, I'm working my way through my kraft cardstock, even though I used a 'saved from the bin' scrap this week for my card base. I bought a heap of it from Two Pea's (twopeasinabucket.com) and I only have one A4 sheet left! I also used a scrap of polka dot paper, which I have been saving forever (literally, I got it in my first purchase of crafting stuff)! The stamp, was from HeroArts called 'tiny owl'. I just can't stop using it - Its sooo CUTE!

I was 'admiring' my card after the video - silly yes, but whatever...:)- and it was only untill I posted the description on YouTube (when I had to give it a name) that I had put 'Who' instead of 'Hoo'...seriously, I can be so dumb at times!

Anyway, that's all from me - have a great week (although you know I'll catcha later!)
- Savannah ;)

I know this is gonna blow some minds, but SONY is working on a new phone called Simplicity that is just a phone. That's right :: No texting, No camera. No living your life for you. Just calling people and talking to them directly. Actual conversations with other humans, people!
Although, I worry that even this one wouldn't make the cut for simplicity... It still does that stupid flip thing.

Don't you love this card? I showed you guys the stamp in my last 'update' video on YouTube. I think I showed the card too, but, for those of you who haven't seen it, here it is!

This morning I entered readysetscrap.com.au, which puts me in the draw to get a placing in the 'top 50 blogs'...I hope I win something, because you get a cute little banner to pop onto your blog (I *heart* banners).

I also posted a video on YouTube which provided the link to my blog...so here's hoping I get some more veiwers over here...

Oh well, I'm off now. I'm going to my mum's work this morning (well, I do every holidays), and then in the afternoon I'm walking up to the local school to run around their feild (no, I'm not insane, I'm practicing for cross-country which is 1st week back next term...)

HoHum! See ya later!
- Savannah ;)
Hiya Everyone!
Welcome to my blog...finally it's here! I have been trying FOREVER to find a blog that works for me and suits me...found it!

So, I dont really have much to say...just to keep checking here as I will be able to update it more than YouTube (and by the way there is a direct link to my channel on the right-hand side of the page), like featuring cards I have made that have not been featured on YouTube. If you have a blog...be sure to follow my blog, by clicking the link on the right-hand side...if you do I will do the same 4 you. Also, just a huge thanks to TheCutestBlogOnTheBlock.com, I love your stuff! Anyone in need of a super cute blog layout should take a look there!

On the other hand...congrats to the O'neil celli teams at the Worlds (Irish Dancing) in all, our teams got 4th, 22nd and 6th...WoOhOo! Go O'neil!

Oh, and I hope everyone had great Easter...I know I did, being the start of the school holidays!

Okay, well then, thats it...I'm just going to leave you with my 'top 3 channels 4 this week' - 1.Keeponscrappin - 2.
