New "Clear Card" Video!

ETA: To answer a few questions I have been getting
1. I get my transparency at the office supply store in a box of 100. (I use Office Max and get rewards coupons. The box of transparencies is a little over $21. I had a coupon for $10 off, so they cost me about $13 with tax. That makes them about 13 cents each and one sheet will make 2 cards.
I know there are thicker kinds, but this works for me.
2. Yes, Tombow adhesive works very well.
3 My bracelet came from the Brighton Outlet in San Marcus, I am sure it is Dis-continued now as that was a while ago and it was an outlet store.
4 I will do my best to post some pictures of my craft room in the near future so you can all see what was going on on those shelves behind me!
Good Morning all, and Happy {heart} day to you!
I finished editing my video last night and it's all ready to go!
Take a look! (PS there is a give away at the end!)

I getting better at seeing myself on video, so you may see more and more of me.
I am still working on an angle/stand for taping video, so I apologies in advance for blocking your view sometimes.
Lastly-my cell phone rang in the middle--too bad it wasn't Ed McMahon!
I am loading this now (11 am) and the video is still processing so it maybe graining for just a short while

Great video Aaron! Those cards are adorable. Now I'm thinkin I need to get that stamp set.

Where do you by transparency? I've only found it at office supply stores for an outrageous price.

Happy Valentine's Day!

April said...

What a cute card. I have not paid a whole lot of attention to clear cards in the past, becuase I thought they were impractical due to no place to write.

I love your way of doing them, you get the fun of a clear card with a USEABLE card. Excellent!!!!

Thanks for sharing!
I enjoy reading your blog. You pop up at the top of my Google Reader & always anticipate seeing what you've made.
