Video and Giveaway!

The giveaway is closed, but it's stilla great resource video.  Please see this video for coordinating ink colors and for winner of the cardstock sampler giveaway.  And, I have a NEW giveaway in that link!


Hey everyone! I hit 6000 subscribers and am celebrating with a fun giveaway for all my viewers!  Check out this video with my favorite colors from Gina K. Designs.  Hope you find it informative and spot some of your faves, too!


You might notice a few changes in this video, although there are more changes to come  (a few things I added display properly in edit mode but not when viewing outside of that, so I have a ticket into Youtube to figure out the problem. Nothing major, just a little music and outro!  You can see it below, had to share it here, since I worked on it) 


Thanks for bearing with me and my no frills production values up until this point, I like keeping all that simple to spend more time and coming up with creative ideas for the cards, but no more, I learned some simple ways even a not tech savvy gal like me can jazz it up!  I was invited to a Youtube Creator conference here in Austin last week (for channels with over 1K subs),  and it was a great opportunity to learn more about how to improve the videos and channel and build community, so I was really thankful to attend. Here I am running in to Lydia Fielder, who also lives here and has a crafty channel like I do! In a sea of gamers and beauty vloggers, we were definitely representing! Stampers in da house!

Anyway, I will announce the winner of the cardstock package in my next video. I hope you all leave your comment *on the video* (not here) and like it and subscribe to make sure you are entered!

Happy day!

Hi Melanie thank you for all the wonderful video's - love your triple play stamp sets I have purchased three already but have lots more on my wish list. Would so love to have some of the Gina K cardstock living in Canada makes the shipping too expensive for me to buy except when buying a kit. I do have the co-ordinating ink just not the cardstock Please keep the video's coming love them:) maryeneill@yahoo.ca

Great video, thank you. I like all colors, but will have to say from this video I'm liking the Blue Raspberry.

Melanie
Thank you so much. It was inspiring to see all the colours together, I did not realize the wide scope of the shades. I usually just use the card stock that comes with the kits. Now I have something to order to make up the amount necessary to be eligible to get the incentive stamps. Thanks again!

WOW, what a nice video and beautiful card stock. I've been buying GK products for awhile now, and watch your videos all the time. There's so many colors I love, but off the top of my head, I really like Ocean Mist, Turquoise Seas. And the black is the darkest, richest black I've ever seen. I love GK card stock!
