{Fomenting Friday} Tutorial #1

Happy Friday to you!  I'm so excited to share my first video tutorial with you!  You'll laugh, but I was super nervous doing this.  It'll get better as we go on!

So, we're going to make the Faux Patchwork Quilt.  It's super easy and well laid-out.  

Here's what I've used in the video (my sample):
12x12 Beau Chateau DSP (Designer Series Paper)
18" strip of Beau Chateau Fabric, wrapped into a rosette
1 Antique Brad
5-1/2 x 4-1/2" piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock
Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue
Crumb Cake Classic Ink Pad

Here's what you'll do:
Trim your DSP into 12 squares, 1-1/2" x 1-1/2".  To your side, layout the squares in the pattern that you want.  Take your 5-1/2" x 4-1/2" piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock and, with the Tombow Glue, make sure to cover the entire surface and pay extra attention to the edges (you don't want the paper to separate after running it through the Big Shot with the Top Note die).  Immediately start placing your 1-1/2" squares on the cardstock, making sure to line them up properly.

Once that's complete, grab your Big Shot, the Top Note die, and the sandwich plates.  Put it all together and run it through.  Voila!  You've got your Faux Patchwork Top Note to use and embellish any way that you desire!

Here's the link to the video! It took forever and a day to upload, so I apologize.  Our internet service has been a little wonky these past couple of days!  Hope you enjoy and leave me a comment!  Thank you!
