Cardboard Connoisseur {And a 2 minute technique video}

This week, I received my order from Gauche Alchemy in the mail (rocket fast……they must have known that I need my scrap supply fix quickly). It was a beautiful day for me.  I opened up that package, and inside was a bunch of cool uniqueness that I could never have expected, and made me so excited (ahem, except for what I’d seen in the photos on the website, but real life is different, eh?)

In the package, was some of the “ouchless cardboard”. I am a connoisseur of corrugated cardboard, but…, you know that, right?  So, I immediately (after opening the package) got to work on a fun technique that I use , but in this case it was slightly different, because this cardboard is different. It is bendy and wiggly, which is super cool! It made the corrugated board perfect for a layout that can actually fit in a page protector, because it is thinner!

So, I thought this technique would be perfect for a video tutorial, and so did my video assistant, Miss Brynne.  We filmed the quick technique in just minutes….and I have it for you to see today! This video is super short……..about 2 minutes, but I think this technique is fun, and produces a REALLY nice result, if you are working with corrugated card.

Don’tcha love hot glue strings you never noticed? Hmmmm. I don’t.

Recently,  I had a bunch of pictures that I loved, from as far back as last March, printed ( since my printer is on the fritz, now I have to have them professionally done).  I found this pic of my hubby and I. Actually, it is from a series of REALLY goofy pics we’d taken in a photo booth style, around Thanksgiving. I can’t wait to scrap the others…….they’re super funny.  This is the only “serious” one.

Thanks so much for visiting today, and I hope you enjoyed the video!  PLEASE come back and visit on Saturday, I am participating in an AWESOME blog hop with my scrappy Instagram friends, and there will be a GREEN GIVEAWAY involved, to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day! Yay!

Have a wonderful hump day, Gnomies.

~ Blessings!

    Great page – and you can get away with the glue strings!!!!! I liked the different style of video, but some of the text could have stayed on a little longer – I didn’t always feel like I had chance to read it properly. I’d also like to see the difference between the coatings a bit better. I was going to say I found the music distracting – but I forgot that I could have turned the volume down – Doh!
    Keep doing the videos – they keep getting better.
