Oh NO!! Smurfs Took Over my Facebook Live on Tuesday 21 July 2020. OK, not really, but something very strange happened to my WebCam, which meant the stream, and therefor the video, has a blue cast over it. Sadly this is not something that I could fix after the event, so I hope you will find it amusing, rather than annoying!
In my Facebook Live I continued my ‘Not Just for Christmas’ theme again, but I also turned it on its head a bit and did some ‘I didn’t know I could use that for Christmas’. Believe me or not, I genuinely had no idea that the Flowers for Every Season Memories and More Card Pack has some cards that are perfect for Christmas, Valentines and more.
Flowers for Every Season Memories and More
I started with the Flowers For Every Season Memories and More Cards. There are some great word cards that you can cut up to. make sentiment strips, especially if you are OK accepting a couple of spelling issues (if you are in the UK at least). Using these cards is such a great way to make really quick cards, whatever you need the for. I made three cards in no time flat, simply adding the cards to the front of a Memories & More Note Card. Perfectly sized for both large and small cards, these are available in both White (multi size packs) or InColor packs with matching envelopes.
If you like non traditional colours for your Christmas Cards, they the image above is for you. If you want the card to be larger, then why not add it to a Misty Moonlight large Memories and More Card base. You will see these in the Video, they come in all the new InColors, so are a perfect addition to the Flowers for Every Seasons Suite of products.
You will see from this Bumblebee version, that there is a white dotted frame around the Card Base, in just the right place to frame one of the smaller cards in the Memories and More Card Pack.
Heartwarming Hugs ‘Not Just for Christmas’
The main project for the Facebook Live was the Mini Coffee Cups and Holder. These are actually not that ‘mini’, as you can probably tell from the photo below. I am not sure what the capacity of the cups is, but even though there are measurements in the Catalogue, I expected them to be a lot smaller than they are. The holders are super easy to put together. I would suggest reinforcing all the creases before you finally put it together though.
The Warm Hugs Bundle includes dies to make the cup wrapper (you are give 2 dies, and you need them both for the wrapper). I would probably overlap the die cuts a little more than the flaps suggest, just so there are no gaps, but they are a great fit. There are so many extra dies included in the set, including a die for the cute little coffee mug. I had to use the mug on my project, obviously because it is just too cute, but also to go with my chosen sentiment for the tag. ‘I Like you a Latte’ is shouting out for a mini cup stamped, and popped up next to it. It would have been rude not to!! The Coffee Cup holder wrap used 2 ” strips of Designer Series Paper, one left at 12 ” and on about 6″ long. One pack of paper will cover LOTS of Mini Cup Holders.
Video Time!! Just watch out for Smurfs!
I should add that I did eventually work out the issue with the camera. Let’s just say, it was not even slightly obvious what the problem was, but I should know how to fix it if it goes odd again.
