Valentine’s Day Card

For those who are reading this blog for the first time, welcome to my blog.  I should clear something up before I continued.  As you may noticed my channel is called “Lesley Creates” and the name of my business is called “Original Things“.  The simple explanation was when I was creating this channel, the name Original Things was already taken.  And I didn’t really like Original Things 2.  Since my name is Lesley, I came up with Lesley Creates.

I done my first video, and I am sorry for the editing mistakes.  I am hoping that I will improve with practise.

For those are not from You Tube, here is the link the video.

Valentine’s Day Card

Here is the list for the card:

  • 5 by 6 1/2 inch white Recollection card
  • 90 lb watercolor paper cut to 2 by 6 1/2 inches
  • red cardstock cut to 3 by 6 1/2 inches
  • Inkadinkado Heart stamps
  • Clear Embossing ink, I used VersaMark Embossing Ink Pad
  • Anti-static pad, I used Recollection pad
  • Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Fired Brick, and Pickled Raspberry
  • Double-sided tape
  • 1/2 inch wide white dotted red ribbon
  • Sizzlex Flower Layer #3 Die
  • White cardstock, roughly cut to 5 by 6 inches
  • Circle dies, 4 1/4  and 3 3/4 inch diameter
  • Jolee’s Boutique Silver Dots
  • Recollection gems

So I hope you like the video and please subscribe.

Hope everyone is well.

Lights, Camera, . . . Delays

I have been thinking about this for several months now and finally decide to take the plunge.  No, not getting married or even sky diving.  I decided to start a You Tube channel.  And trust me, every thought that came into my head of why this was a bad idea was there.

  1. This will make your depression and anxiety worst
  2. No one will watch it.
  3. You are going to pervert weird dos who wants to have sex with you.
  4. Your privacy will diminish.

But I decided to tell all of my doubts to go away and give it shot.  If it flops, I can hopefully delete the channel.

And so far, the channel has a been a complete adventure.  For one thing, I wanted to name it Original Things, but that name was taken.  So I called it Lesley Creates.  I am also shooting it from my phone and trying to figure out the set up was interesting, but I got it done.  Where I did shoot my first video which caused more delays.

For starters, the video tanked.

I did test videos before.  I recorded myself wiggling my toes.  I realized that it is Academy winner, but I wanted to practise shooting and get the hang of editing.  I even found music that I can used without getting into trouble.

I thought I already got the hang of it when I shot my first video.  Except it showed sideways and I couldn’t rotate it.  So all of that was delete.

I am currently editing my second video, a Valentine’s Day card.  There is a few mistakes, but so far, it is ok.  I didn’t realized editing from my phone takes a lot of power.  I am currently charging my phone so I can finish.  Not to mention, it takes at least five minutes to save the video.

As you can guessed, the channel is going to about crafts, mainly paper crafts.  I would like to figure out of how to incorporate yarn, but that is a working progress.  I also have a few ideas of creative storage.

Here is the link to the channel, Lesley Creates  I am hoping that this link works.

I hope everyone had a good weekend.
