Fun ideas for your crafty projects

Portrait of a Lady Album Clare Charvill Graphic 45

Morning everyone, we've woken up to sunshine this morning after a very wet and rainy week here. I've been running an early morning taxi service for Oli as his car is really poorly, and have to say despite my moaning (lol!!) I've enjoyed the early starts to my days. ...... 
Today I thought I'd share a couple of fun videos on how to make slider cards and create neat magnetic closures for your projects.  I included both ideas in some of my latest projects, we've had fun making them in recent workshops and I finally got round to doing the videos for them yesterday.

  3. thanks Clare for both videos....I too hate those bumps the magnets make and have tried to use the thinnest ones I can possibly find, but the bumps this is a very attractive way of hiding them...also luv the slider....both of these ideas will be incorporated into my next album....take care
