2017 Rewind: A Look at This Year’s Top 10 Videos

Hello Kre8tors! Wow, 2017 has been an absolute whirlwind of activity! I wanted to take a moment to recollect some of mine and your favorite videos from 2017. Some of the products in these videos may be retired, but the techniques aren’t! Let me know what your favorite moment from this year was, and I’ll do a “replay” for it with current products!

1

2017 started out with a road trip for me and my husband. We traveled to Virginia for 3 months while he attended school for his career in the Air National Guard. This was a fun mini-series to film of our road trip, which doesn’t have much to do with card making, but I thought it was important to note in this rewind. (I did haul all of my supplies with me however, and continued to film and create while we were in our hotel room!)

2

The next video in this rewind includes my most popular video for January 2017, a Melissa’s Kre8tions Live video featuring a popular Sale-A-Bration set, Avant Garden. I absolutely love this card design and will definitely be making another one with some new Sale-A-Bration and Occasions products!

3

Coming in at a close second for most popular video in January would be my Waterfall Card using Weather Together (which is still a current product in our annual catalog!) 

4

February’s favorite video was the Corner-Pop-Up Card, also featuring some Occasions products from the 2017 collection. This card was fun and easy to make, and is a perfect vessel for handing out gift cards!

5

At the beginning of March my husband and I were traveling home. Upon our return, I started a new job and wasn’t able to make as many videos. Over the summer I only made a few videos but one of the videos I did make was not only my most popular video all summer, it is still my most popular video at all time just now breaking over 13,000 views! I am so stunned by this and thankful to all that have viewed my Daisy Delight Double Z-Fold video.

6

I left my job in October, which opened up more time to get back to what I loved, my videos and my viewers! October’s most popular video was my Merry Pattern’s Eclipse Card using an exclusive stamp set. This was a fun and festive card to make, and one of my favorites holiday cards of this season.

7

November’s popular video was the first from my tag series this year, Snowflakes Sentiments Tag #1 – SERIES. It features a fun and different way to use the Pretty Label Punch along with the Snowflake Sentiments set. I enjoy doing a tag series each year, and used up just about all the tags I’ve made!

8

December was a busy month for me and my videos! I posted a video almost every day, with the exception of maybe two weekends. I LOVED posting videos every day and being so creative! The 3rd most popular video for December was my Faux Eclipse Card using the Happy Birthday Gorgeous Bundle. Such a fun and colorful card to make! 

9

The #2 most watched video in December was my Swirly Bird Frame Card. It’s one of my most favorites from the whole year! I love the color combination, the splotches of gray in the background, and the swirls from the thinlits.

10

And finally the number 1 video for December is my Daisy Delight 4-Way Fold Card. I really enjoyed making this fun fold card and it looks like most of you liked it as well!

And that wraps up our 2017 rewind! I hope you enjoyed this little walk down memory lane! If you’d like to see the supplies used in these videos, just click on the links in the descriptions and you’ll be taken to the blog posts with the materials used.

Thank you so much everyone for taking the time to read this through and supporting me through my Stampin’ Up! business as well as being my viewers and followers! I appreciate each of you! I wouldn’t be able to continue doing what I love if it wasn’t for your support and encouragement! So thank you! Let’s ring in 2018 with good thoughts and great times! #thinkpositivebepositive

Clean & Quick Cards SERIES 1

Welcome to the first video in a new series, Clean & Quick Cards! I need to bust out some quick Christmas cards, and thought I would share some designs I’ll be sending out with you. I really like how quick these are to make, and I LOVE the crisp, clean look that Whisper White Cardstock gives these cards.

They are perfect for beginners or advanced paper crafters and can easily be “stepped-up” to create a more detailed look. Keeping it simple, with just a few materials, is really a fool-proof way to make beautiful cards quickly.

Poinsettia from Scratch

I wanted to replicate a pattern on my leggings, but didn’t have the poinsettia punch so I improvised! It’s a bit of a mish-mash, but I think for what I had on hand it came out pretty well. I used a LOT of different framelits and thinlits to get this beautiful Christmas flower, so be sure to check below for all the materials used.

I love finding inspiration for my cards in unexpected places, and I think finding inspiration from a clothing item is so awesome! It’s a color combination that I would have NEVER put together myself, so I’m glad I got out of my comfort bubble to give this a go!

Measurements

Card Base – 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored @ 4-1/4″
Card Mat – 4″ x 5-1/4″
Scrap Pieces – Large enough to cut out assorted pieces

SERIES: Tag #1 Snowflake Sentiments

Welcome to my 3 part video series for my Christmas Tags this year! Here’s our first tag using the fun Snowflake Sentiments Bundle. I love heat embossing with metallics and the silver really goes well with the Smoky Slate background! The edgelits in this bundle are just stunning, and I love how it adds a whimsical touch to the snowflakes!
