  2. Cute, simple card, sometimes I get hung up thinking I need to make something so elaborate that the card doesn't get finished. Thanks for the new video.

  4. What a great video! Thanks for reminding us that coordinating does not mean matching! I always get hung up on that and spend less time creating since it takes me hours just to "match" up my papers:o)

  17. I soooo agree with using brown over black a lot of the time. Cute card, too!!

  18. Great advice for newbies! I wish I had known that going in. The one thing I would add is to spend money on good supplies, I would recommend investing in, for example, a good ink pad and not the $1.00 ones. I have found those are not as good.

    I love the easter motif on your web page.

    Thank you Robyn for all you do. Everytime I come online I always check for a video :)

  19. Thanks for the great video, Robyn.

    When you were on your break, I took the time to read your previous entries. One one of them you mentioned that you hadn't been selected as part of a design team. There's definitely a place for elaborate time consuming cards, but there's also a place for simple, well done ones. Thank you for that reminder and keep reminding us over and over and over. I think sometimes the companies just showcase the intricate samples to sell more product. Like a previous commenter said, sometimes we think everything has to be complicated and so we just don't do anything at all. Our craft supplies just sit waiting for when we "have more time."
    Anyway, I think you're awesome.

    If it wasn't for your videos my cricut would be just collecting dust.

  34. Robin,

    I love how you make everything look so simple!! It helps someone like me feel like, "Oh I can do that"....I've seen some people do stuff that looks like sewing on paper? I was wondering if you could maybe do I video on that??

  35. Hi Robyn,

    Great Video and so easy to do, sometimes I get so stressed out because I can't seem to come with an ideas, and after seeing yours, its beautiful and so easy.....

    Question for you: Have you unmounted all of your wood stamps and if so, how are you storing them?

    ReplyDelete

  43. I just wanted to say that I am a beginner who doesn't know anyone who enjoys paper crafts and your videos/blog has been my saving grace. You give easy to follow instructions and I love that everything is so simple that I can do it without feeling overwhelmed. Thank you, thank you, thank you for sharing!!!!

  44. Hi Robyn, first off thank you for your amazing blog!!! I remember you mentioning where you get your vinyl from and I am about to purchase some from them for an Enrichment activity I am in charge of (if I remember right you know what that is). so my ? for you is what transfer tape do you use? does that site sell some or do you still buy it from Cricut. Any ideas/suggestions you have I would love to hear.
    thanks
