The Cutest Video Hop Ever with Special Guests + Giveaways!!


Hello, and welcome to The Cutest Video Hop Ever! My son and I are excited to be hosting this fun hop celebrating 5000 subscribers on my YouTube channel and, more importantly, inspiring the next generation of crafters! I invited seven seasoned artists to craft with their kids, and two very inspiring young crafters are also joining us on their own YouTube channels. I hope you enjoy video hopping with us this Valentine's Day!


Damian and I made his class Valentine's Day gifts for this video hop. We printed Every Day Animals and S'More and More by Just ME Digital Stamps and coloured them with Copic markers.



The white and kraft layers were die cut with Double Stitched Rectangle STAX and Stitched Rectangle STAX, respectively, by My Favorite Things.


Aren't these images the cutest? We love the punny sentiments, too!



Then we stamped the large acorn from My Favorite Nut by Neat & Tangled on white shrink film using Staz-On ink. The images were all coloured with Sharpies before baking.


After all of the beaded charm bracelets were finished, we stamped the kraft envelopes with an adorable bear and sentiment from Courteous Cuties and Courteous Cuties 2 by Paper Smooches, using ombre vintage metallic steel ink. We packaged both the cards and bracelets inside the envelope and sealed them with washi tape.

Teresa Doyle said...

Congratulations Emily on your milestone! Well deserved!
This was such a fun hop, I totally enjoyed it!
I have a desk in my craftroom for my 3 & 5 y/o grandsons as well as a cabinet for their own craft supplies. I do let them use my stamps/inks and they call them images now as they have watched so many card videos! LOL Whenever the 5 y/o sees me using a Copic now instead of asking what colour it is he asks me what number it is...LOL
Emily, this way way too much fun! What a great way for you to celebrate your achievement!
