Bold Stripes Background with Crystal (Video) + Giveaway

Hello there lovelies!

First, I have been rather remiss in properly introducing our new Video Publicist, Crystal Thompson. I have had the pleasure of hanging out with Crystal and she is a joy to be around: warm; funny; friendly; creative; and helpful.  She was our Leading Lady back in June 2017.  I love her can-do attitude, zest for life, confidence and keen interest in creativity including the business side of it.

She joined The Talent back in January and has been adding videos to our YouTube channel every month since.  I hope you enjoy them and let us know if there are any particular tutorials you are interested in seeing in the future.   

I wanted to you learn a bit more about Crystal here and then see her awesome latest video.  Continue reading till the end to get the details about the giveaway.

>>>ABOUT CRYSTAL<<<

1. Favorite snack(s) while creating: Is a glass of wine considered a snack? lol. If not, raw baby carrots are my usual go to. 
2. Color combo I can’t get enough of: Mint, pink and gold! 
3. On my desk/table right now is: A crafty mess, my full planner and kid toys. 
4. I excel at: I don't know if I "excel" at anything. But I certainly feel I make lots of friends easily. 
5. When I craft I: watch tv/movies; listen to music; listen to the voices in my head; and/or prefer silence: I put on my headphones to tune out the 4+ kids and listen to audio books on my phone. I enjoy a good mystery. 
6. My favorite crafting companion: I like to craft alone, it's probably because I do not get time to myself without an interruption. 
7. Don’t you dare take this away from me: My phone! I use it for music, audio books, remote to the tv, my books, the pattern for my knitting. Yikes! 
8. My favorite crafting holiday/event: I love creating for Christmas. There are so many possibilities for color combos, I love the weather that totally makes it acceptable to spend the day creating since "the weather outside is frightful". 
9. My pictures are mostly of: The kids! Or as we like to call them "the muffin people". 
10. When I grow up I want to be:  An Olympic gymnast, who doesn't want to do back-flips on a balance beam, am I right?!

  19. I follow you on Youtube already and just loved this creative video tutorial. I thought those bold stripes were a stamp and was so surprised to see how she made them with masking and inking! The combo of stripes and soft flowers gives this card a trendy, modern design.
