i-rock tutorial


Have you seen the new i-rock tool?  I’ve used it on several projects lately and I LOVE IT!!!!  This tutorial shows how to use it and some of the packages of gems you can purchase to use with your tool. 

That sound in the background at one point (that sounds like a duck – lol) was a message coming in on my phone.  Forgot to turn that part off before I started the video.  Whooops!!




Want to give some input on the next tutorial/video?  Please leave a comment and let me know what you would like to hear me discuss.  :o)

Homemade Glue Dots – Tutorial


I shot a quick USTREAM video earlier today about how to make your own glue dots.  If you’re interested in checking it out, please click below. 



Unfortunately, the i-rock portion of the video did not record.  The USTREAM feed froze right about the time I was done with my portion on the glue dots, so I will have to do another video on how that works. 

This was a live internet feed when it was recorded, so please excuse me talking to the viewers who were asking questions.  It is quite funny to listen to that and the # of times I say “Umm”.  LOL

Red, White & Blue Bookmark…



Thanks for stopping!!  I’m super excited about today’s project!  I have two bookworm daughters, so when I received today’s Splitcoast Stampers Weekly Inkling, I knew I had to create one of the bookmarks in the tutorial.  I must say, it was SUPER easy too!!!
