I wish 1 

I wish 2 

I wish 3   

I wish 4 

My son has been experimenting with Windows MovieMaker, and he shot a tutorial video for me and then did the editing .. go easy on us. it's our first one... it shows how to make the Pennant Die cards above .. hope you find it helpful!


If any of you have kids who play RuneScape, they'll enjoy the music video my son made and posted on YouTube HERE.  I was impressed that he knew how to do all this.. and now he's teaching me how!

Way to go Patty! There is something about video tutorials that just makes everything so much easier to understand. I guess I am a visual learner!

Great Video Patty (and Jason). I liked how you have the item numbers for all the products used.


That was great. Very nice first video


thanks a lot for the video, this card is even easier to make than the criss cross card!
thanks to your son too


Great job on the card and video Patty! Also loved your son's Runescape video, can't wait for my boys to get home from fishing to show it to them...they'll love it! (although I think they'll be quite jealous of your son's "bank"!!)


Wow great cards!
I love your blog!!!

They are all cute, but I love the gingerbread one the most!

Great job guys!! This video was so inspiring that now I have put the Pennant Die on my wishlist! I had so far been successfully resisting it, but not after seeing these adorable cards for Christmas!
Thank You!

You did fabulous and loved it. I haven't gotten the Big Shot Machine yet but it's on my wish list!!


Patty thanks for sharing. You both did a great job. Continue the fabulous work.


Oh, how fun!!! You rocked the video, girl! You can always try to "write" directions, but it's so different to "see" it!!! Great job! Thanks!

Bridgett Owens

Your son did an awesome job with this video. I really like how easy making criss cross cards are with this die. Great video tutorial and I hope you will do more!

diane mcvey

NOW I get it!!! Thanks so much for the tutorial. Not having the die in hand, I wasn't quite sure how the triangles worked. Now I know! That is AWESOME! I MUST get that pennant die now! :D


Great video...good job to you both!

Jenn D

Fabulous job Patty!


Thanks Patty for the daily inspiration. You are very creative and it's so great that Jason supports you and can help with the videos. What a quick and cute card idea. It is so much easier than using the pattern to make that type of card! Congrats on Advisory Board also. You will be great.

Dianna Cooper

Very nice video! I'm lovin' the updated look of your! And your son's video was *so* clever!

Marlene Theissen

Hi Patty,
Oh! what fun to watch your video's and hear your cheerful voice. Besides your teaching video your flower one is so beautiful. Thank Jason for the music. Looking forward to the next project. Marlene


Great video Patty! I'm impressed that it was just your first time doing it! I'll have to try and make that card tonight! :)


Nicole Becker

Okay, that is just plain cool. I love your Christmas card design. And what a great video. Thank you for sharing.


Thanks so much for all you do!! :)

Sue duffy

Just got around to watching this tutorial, Patty. since I just ordered the Big Shot Penant Die today - it's great, as usual. I'm going to try the Christmas trees too - I'm sure they'll be a big hit at my December camps! TFS

Robin East

I am really trying hard to see your tutorials but all I have is a square but no way to view. Your cards are beautiful and I want to learn how you do them. Please let me know what to do. Thanks so much
