Things have been busy here at Paper Crafter’s Library as we are gearing up for a whirlwind of exciting collaborations and spotlights with a variety of different manufacturers within the paper crafting industry. Each of the collaborations and spotlights will feature some awesome give-aways as well as LOTS and LOTS of project inspiration, and TONS of FREE video tutorials, along with some extra special projects for our Paper Crafter’s Library members as well.
We’re kicking things off Monday morning with our week long collaboration with Graphic 45. We’re super excited because we’ve never worked with them before, and they are a top-notch company with top-notch products! Throughout the course of next week we’ll be sharing over 10 different projects with you using the Tropical Travelogue collection – including a tag, a card, card set, scrapbook layout, a couple of mini albums, a few altered art pieces, an art journaling page and some mixed media canvases. And, as I mentioned above, we’ll have an abundance of free video tutorials for you on a range of different projects and techniques. The week after that, we’ll be spotlighting Ranger ink, and we’ll have somewhere around 10 free video tutorials for you as well.
Of course because we’ve been spending so much time creating videos for the next number of weeks, and because we’ll be doing a TON of giveaways over the next few months, we decided to take a break from our regular “Freebie Friday” programming, and simply announce the winner of last week’s give-away.
BUT because we wanted to leave you with some inspiration for the weekend, we decided to pull one of our complimentary videos out of Paper Crafter’s Library and showcase it here. Did you know that Paper Crafter’s Library has an abundance of information and inspiration even for non-members? In fact, if you visit our VIDEO LIBRARY page, look for all the categories that say “this section contains one or more complimentary videos” and click on them to see what free videos we have.
The card below is one example of the the free video tutorials that we offer at the Paper Crafter’s Library. You can view a video for this card and download the pdf handout from here.
So, if you haven’t checked out the free tutorials on the Paper Crafter’s Library then be sure to stop by and check them out.
Today for our Paper Crafter’s Library members, I filmed a video showing how you can add multiple colors of glitter to a die cut adhesive shape. I also created this “Always A Friend To Me” card which features this technique.
Also, Michelle Wecksler has created a video on how to create this Fabric Bookmark for our Paper Crafter’s Library members.
