12 Days of Christmas *Day 12* Fixing Mistakes & 2 Easy Cards

09:00


Hi Crafters,
today is a very special (and kind of sad) day as it is the last day of the 12 Days of Christmas series. It has finally come to an end and although it may have gone by quickly for all of you, the amount of hours put into the series makes me grateful to go back to my normal scheduling. I have lots of fun things coming up soon so be sure to stick around and check back regularly. 



For today's video, I am featuring some great stamps by Winnie and Walter: Holiday Trimmings ( WNN | SSS ) and Merry and Bright( WNN | SSS ). These are great stamps to have for your holiday cards because they cover all your basic needs. You can decorate both cards and envelopes with the Trimmings stamp and have all the sentiments you need with Merry and Bright.


Throughout the video, I go through many "saves" when it comes to making mistakes. It just seemed like everything that could go wrong, went wrong while filming. But instead of making it all seem perfect and editing it out, I thought it would be nice to show you some of my recovery techniques. 


I love traditional red and green for holiday cards and I seemed to use them a lot more than in previous years. I truly hoped you enjoyed the last 12 days and 14 video tutorials! Don't forget to check out all the previous posts for the other giveaways which will close Thursday!

Thank you to Winnie and Walter for Sponsoring Today's Giveaway!
