  1. Beautiful cards–Altenew’s florals are one of my favorites. I can’t wait to watch the video during my lunch break!

  2. Love these cards….
    I also, have an inquiry, about the lovely colorful ‘weight’s’ you use in some of your card making videos.
    The blue and green, it looks like they’re made out of glass and plaster…..
    I’d love to know how to purchase one.
    Blessings,
    Lora

    1. Those blue and green ones are actually samples of kitchen countertops. 🙂 Someone sent them as a gift, so I don’t believe they are available for sale.

  3. Thank you for the wonderful video and reminder of ways to use our stash that is tucked away and forgotten! I was totally inspired! Beautiful cards!♥
