Video – Deco Squares

gorillapod clamp reduced

Yesterday I picked up my new gorillapod clamp so that I can film my tutorials from overhead.  I think I need a mirror above the camera, so I can see what I’m filming, but overall … not bad for my first try!

Todays video is relevent to our May swap … Deco Squares (short for decorative squares).  It’s the first time I’ve run this swap, so I thought a video would be helpful.

Decorative squares can, of course, be different shapes.  Circles, hexagons, scallop circles .. the point is that they are a set of 3 decorative shapes that coordinate so they can be used together.  Of course, you can split them up and use them separately, but together they make a great set of coordinated embellishments for a layout or pocket scrapbook double page.

Here are all the ingredients I used for todays video.  You can find the Panda Face set of stamps in my online store CLICK HERE.  The card & paper were from my scrap folders, and this is where deco squares really rock … they’re the perfect mini stash-buster!

So … there is a deco square (or circle, or hexagon, or ‘other shape’) swap in May.  Official announcement is Monday, but consider this advance notice!  Perhaps you can have a play over the long weekend and see if you like them enough to make 6 sets (that’s 18 pieces) and join the swap!  How do you join?  Well … it’s so simple!  Just email me at with ‘DECO SQUARE’ in the subject line.  Sign-ups are open all next week, and details will be emailed on Sunday 4th May.  Due date is Friday 30th May, and the full details will be in the email.
