Terrifically Talented Thursday!

Welcome to Terrifically Talented Thursday! Today I am spotlighting several craft videos along with some wonderful blogs and new products that I think you will enjoy. Here are my weekly picks.

Yesterday I posted a fun video all about buttons and my friend Katie, suggested that I visit this post. The new button boutique set from Paper trey Ink is amazing just like this shadow box from Erin. Everything but string (to tie in the buttons), ribbon (around spools), and rhinestone brad (scissors) is made out of paper. If time, check out Erin’s blog, Procrastination Station to see more great ideas. Also you don’t want to miss my friend, Crafting with Katie’s blog, she is sooo talented. And she loves buttons too!

Speaking of Crafting with Katie, she also told me about this fun new blog, The Craft Hot Spot. This blog was created by Momo and Paula who according to their profiles wanted everyone to have a place where they could come and have a schedule of all the Craft Related Events, Blog Hops, Giveaways, Swaps, UStreams, and much more. What a great concept! I am approaching my one year YouTube anniversary and I am so going to promote my giveaway on this site. Did I mention that Katie is super smart too? Thanks Katie for the link.

Now for the new videos, I promised you. First, check out this video on how to make spiral fabric flowers by SaCrafter. This is not an ordinary flower video, SaCrafter shows you how to color and add shimmer to your fabric. Once she has created the fabric she makes some really beautiful and simple fabric flowers.

The next video is from Robin at Robin’s Creative Cottage and shows how to make and emboss boxes using plastic. Too clever and it looks super simple.

The last video is from Hero Arts and demonstrates a new layered stamped backgrounds technique that has a watercolor look.

Thanks for stopping by and hope you are having a terrific Thursday. Please stop in tomorrow for a fun new card.
