New WOW! Video: Mastering The Mix

On yesterday’s post, I shared a Sneak Peek of the new Meant to Be Bundle from the upcoming 2019 Occasions Catalog. You can view the post here.  Today’s video (above) offers my tips on “mastering a mix”  of elements when creating handmade cards 


As I mentioned in the video, sometimes mastering the mix may be about taking something off if you feel it’s too much.  Designer Coco Chanel offers great advice for fashion that can be applied to paper crafting “Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and take at least one thing off.”

  1. This is definitely a WOW card! I have added it to my list of must CASE from the new catalog. What buttons did you use on this project? They look like Soft Sea Foam but I can’t find them in any of the catalogs. Thanks for sharing this beautiful project.

    • Thanks so much, Debbie. I didn’t use buttons but you could. I believe you are looking at the Soft Sea Foam brad on the small Soft Suede heart from our Basic Brads (#146930)

  2. Loved the tips, video, and card. Great tips, especially for those times when the creative block hits.

  3. Love the Be Mine Card, it’s absolutely beautiful. And I want the stamps and dies now that I’ve seen what can be done with them. Thanks so much for all the great tips too!

  4. Thank you, Mary! I adore your card and I appreciate your explanation of the how’s and whys! You are in a really good groove!! Love it!! Adding those dies to my list!

  5. Hi Mary, Would you please share where you purchase the holder for you framelit magnet sheet. I purchase my magnet sheets from Stamp-n-Store. The plastic holder is such a great idea!! Thanks for sharing

  6. Love your card! I also like the idea of storing dies in the clear folder. For some reason, I did not get where to find them. Would love to purchase some. Thank you for sharing.

  7. DEFINITELY a Wow video on a Wow project!!! I’ve always wondered how to add with abandon without going too far, so being able to back off (remove) is a great tip for creating so fabulous flirty projects <3

  8. This card is STUNNING my friend. AND………your video’s are always a bonus to any post. THANKS!
