The Cutest Video Hop EVER: 2020!

Hola and welcome to our stop on The Cutest Video Hop Ever for 2020!  My son and I are VERY excited to be joining Emily Leiphart for our third year on this fun YouTube Hop, inspiring the next generation of crafters!  We hope you have as much fun watching us craft with our kids–or in my case, watching my son craft! Ha!

Thanks so much to our very generous sponsors who have donated SO MANY PRIZES! 🙂

My only contribution to his card was stamping and diecutting all the images (aka “beautiful photos of some cute little bears”) for him ahead of time. As you will notice, he is not short winded as this video started out at 20 minutes–ha! I edited it down to 10 minutes, so don’t panic! (yes, I know that is still tooooo long. 🙂 ). You’ll be able to tell, he handled all the rest (and then some) himself. He likes to chat and has a lot to say–with bits of advice about crafting, but I think it applies to life too, often. 🙂 . He is such a fun kid and quite the natural, which I’m thinking is completely opposite of me if I did videos? who knows! ha! ❤

Please note: I do not make videos. For those who do, bravo once again!  🙂

Here is our video ❤ :

Here is a photo of my son’s card: He used Lawn Fawn’s Snow Much Fun Stamp set HERE and  Snow Much Fun dies HERE.

This turned out oh so sweet and I love all his thinking behind the colors and his descriptions about being patient, etc. ❤ He’s such a stitch!

Also, while E didn’t get to make another card with another set we were gifted, I thought I would make a couple myself to share. (His video would have gone into the 60 min zone! ha!) This is a fun set from Catherine Pooler! The set is called Sentimental Fruit HERE and the Sentimental Fruit dies are HERE. Thank you, Catherine & team! 🙂
I enjoy some pun and I enjoy some fruit! 🙂
I could use a bunch of this one to send. 🙂
Orange You Cute! I masked off some simple stripes behind these  citrus delights with some more scoring.
So fun! I used all Catherine Pooler Inks HERE too.
