Saturated Canary YouTube Post


This week it's my turn again to post on the Saturated Canary YouTube Channel.

For this video I decided to show you how to make a Mini Milk Carton.  You can find my video HERE

I used this template, which you can download for free.
  1. With your mouse on the template image, press the LEFT button on your mouse once.  This should open the template image in a new, bigger window.
  2. Now, with your mouse on the new image, press the RIGHT button on your mouse once. A menu will appear.  Choose the “Save Picture As” option and then choose a location on your computer to store it to.
  3. If you now open the image from your computer, you should be able to print it full-size on an A4 sheet.
If you print the image on the back of your card in draft mode (to save ink!) you can then follow the score lines without them showing on the outside of your box.

(If you have any problems downloading this template, please email me and I will send it to you.)

I used one of the new Saturated Canary Stamps called Violet Vintage and coloured her using my Copic Markers.  Here's a close up of the coloured image

Skin - C00, C0, C1, C2

Wordless Wednesday - Red Update

If you're looking for my Midweek Magnolia Challenge Post, you can find it HERE


Well, Red really has settled in a treat.  All my other cats love him and Orion is very proud of his new pal ...

Red is a very busy kitten, he spends lots of time playing and chasing anything that moves !!!!
Of course, this means he has to spend time re-charging his batteries...

Thanks for stopping by today.
