  34. I saw this the other day on the Custom Crops site. I remember seeing you do one of these before, but hadn't thought about it. I may just make some for stocking stuffers. since there are 32 of us when my family is together for Christmas, I need something that is fairly inexpensive and this fits the bill.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Super cute! I'm totally going to make these for all the employees! Also, you could use microwave popcorn packets...JLEkan@gmail.com

  47. Thanks for another great video. I always watch your videos. You really make me want my expression to hurry up and get here. I ordered one on Pink Tuesday. I'm not sure if I get to play with it before Christmas or not. I made sliders last year and had Hershey candy bars inside. It was funny to watch people try to figure out how they worked. I took some to work and my hubby took some to the ladies at the coffee shop. He goes there everyday before he starts his work.

  48. You guys just read my mind!! I was wanting to make a bunch of these for people that I work with and so this video could not have come at a better time!!

  52. Love you video as always. TFS.

    Just for your info when you are doing things with the function keys and you pressed cut to see the size or how many----- you can press the OK button and it will show you and you don't have to stop it before it cuts. The fit to length is my favorite feature.

  55. Robyn, I just found your blog and I have to say I love it. I told my Aunt about it too and we are so excited to see the DVD. I loved your slider for cocoa. My Aunt gave me one last year with a gift card. Smaller size than yours of course. Can't wait to see what's next. Take care.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Another great video Robyn and I love the extra pointers. I too want to give this slider concept a try with gift cards. My niece has 12 children and I can always use inexpensive project to give them at holidays, birthdays, etc. You sure help filling my inspiration void.

    Best always,

  63. I am so excited for this project! I saw your apple cider slider video a while back and I made a Christmas cocoa pack -- then I decided to try to make 20 of them as place settings for Christmas dinner! Thanks for sharing!

  64. Super cute!! I love the papers you used. And guess what? I have Plantin and had no idea it had the scallop on it! Yay! I'm so excited. I guess that's what I get for not using it in a while. It's good to break the oldies out every once in a while and look through the book. I can't believe it. It was like Christmas - but free!!! lol

    ReplyDelete
  65. Cute! Love the slider....Thanks for sharing.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Great Job on the video. I Think I need to make a few of these! Had to laugh at your crop a dial antics! You need to play with it and get use to it! I love mine! It is never very far from me when Im crafting!

  67. Thanks for reminding me about this slider. You always make it look so easy! Also, if you place your paper in the corner of the Scor-Pal, it helps keep it even for your score lines.

  70. Love this slider card! I plan on using this for a few gifts for my DD's teachers..OK..she is a senior, but so what, I think they will appreciate it! Besides, I owe these educators as they allowed her to attend this school which is out of our zone. She basically went from 2 core classes to all she needs to graduate at CCHS. GO RAZORBACKS!!! LOL

  99. Awesome as usual lol!!! I have a tip (u prob already do) But you know how the pages are sometimes hard to turn in the lil' books that come with the cartridges. I tear out all the pages with the languages that I dont use. Then my pages turn a lot easier.
