Love Always VIDEO TUTORIAL! {TCW Stencils}


Hi All! So I'm back with another video tutorial....and I went wayyy out of my comfort zone with this one.  I always try to get in and read all the feedback on my tutorials and one of the things I've been asked a few times is if I'd consider narrating on my tutorials.  Well, I'm one of those people who can't stand the sound of their own voice.  When I get nervous my voice is low, my throat gets dry...well, you get the idea.  But never-the-less I went and tried it out anyways.  So this is a layout I gave you all a peek at a little while back on which I used a NEW stencil I designed for TCW (The Crafter's Workshop), it's called 'Tile Mania'.  For this one I used the 12" x 12" stencil (but it also comes in the 6"x6" size. TCW662.  So without any further ado, hear is my tutorial!....


The photo is of my oldest daughter and her fiancee, they are getting married in May and this photo was one of my many favorites from their engagement photo shoot.


Most of the products I used on this page can be found in one place....The Scrapbook Diaries!  I didn't do this one as a kit as this was a sample page I made for the TCW trade show booth.  But the most of the products I used were from The Scrapbook Diaries.  You can find the papers, the stamps (Gabi's Patterned Textures and Gabi's Postcards From Paris), the stencil, the flowers, burlap, twine, texture paste, Gesso and even some of the chipboard and embellishments at The Scrapbook Diaries, I believe she even has Perfect Pearls there too? (at least I got them from her in the first place, LOL)


The gems where from my local dollar store. In Canada we have Dollarama, I often find odds and ends there that I can add to my pages..  Here you can see how I added the gems to the cross sections of my stencil design. You can also see some of the script stamping I did with my Postcards from Paris stamp set (also at The Scrapbook Diaries)


Another little closeup of the accent area on my layout....I like to throw a little accent area in to balance the page design.  The little blue buds were part of a kit I made up for The Scrapbook Diaries a little while back.  If Janene doesn't have these in her store, I know that many craft stores carry these or something similar in a variety of colors.


I hope you guys enjoyed watching this video tutorial and weren't too put off by my voice! lol......now I've got to get back to wedding plans, like a true mom I've decided to take on a lot of the work myself....wedding cake, flower arranging, decorating....yipes!

Thanks for stopping by my blog today and thanks for the kind comments you all are always leaving me, I really appreciate it!

Thanks Gabrielle! Loved your video, and your narration was greatly appreciated!

Gabrielle, I'm so glad you decided to narrate this video, your voice is just perfect! So pleasant to hear.

Your daughter has grown into such a lovely young woman. When you announced her engagement a while back, I couldn't believe she was old enough to get married! It's been my pleasure to watch both of your girls, and their cousins, grow from young children into teenagers!

Please continue to narrate at least some of your videos, you're a natural...

Best wishes for a beautiful wedding, how could it not be?

Hello Gabrielle, I am beyond happy to see your tutorials and VOICE too!!! It's WONDERFUL!!! I have been following you by email for several years and have absolutely LOVED your work. This LO with your daughter & fiance is one of my very favorites. I wwrote you asking for information on your products but I didn't get a response (probably went to junk mail), but anyway...all the info I need is right here. The background stencil and chipboard is what I really wanted to know about so I will be off purchasing those items for sure.
Thank you for explaining all the little ways you add color and dimension to your designs... I am so delighted we can watch and learn all those little tricks on how to put it all together.
I'll be waiting for many more tutorials to come!!!
