The Last Word
I am going to step out from our traditional Last Word section and chat about a fun aspect we are going to start including in our newsletters -- how-to videos!
Many times we can read through written instructions and figure out how to use a new technique. Often, a few images to show a specific step help further our understanding. But watching the technique via video is the next best thing to learning how to create in person. CardMaker has started to add great videos to its already vast resources on card making.
Specifically, I found this great video on how to create the accordion-pleated medallions that are discussed in this newsletter.
Both Sharon and I will be including more video links in our newsletters to help enhance your card making over the next few months. I am excited about this new resource, and I hope you are as well!
