Welcome to Cards by Amy K.

I am SO GLAD you stopped by to check out my blog!!! Here I will be posting my current projects for you to see. PLEASE feel free to leave me a comment. I would LOVE to hear what you think about what I'm working on. I have been a scrapbooker/paper crafter since I first caught wind of this wonderful hobby in 2006. I am lucky enough to get to spend my days doing something I love so much and which brings so much joy into my life. I first started scrapbooking as a way to pass the time as I found myself at home alone all day suddenly, now I can't imagine life without it. Too bad I don't get paid for it, then I really would have it all!!!

Valentine card 2 start to finish video

This is the second card that I made for my Valentines day card series. I'm also including a video with all the information that you will need if you would like to recreate a card like this..  To run the canvas fabric thru the cricut mini machine I had to spray it first with a stiffener called "Stiffen Stuff" by Beacon.  I picked it up at my local Hobby Lobby. I first sprayed it on the canvas then used the heat tool to dry it most of the way then I used my craft iron to finish drying it and to get out any wrinkles.  It cut beautifully  thru the mini machine.  I think the rest of any information that you may need will be covered in the video.  So here it is, enjoy!

I think I also explain the products I used to make this card in the video. so without further ado, here's the video.  Hope you enjoy!
