Pinkies Spring/Summer bloghop

Thank you for joining us on another Pinkies Blog Hop! We're showcasing lots of gorgeous projects 
using products from the new Stampin' Up!® Spring/Summer Catalogue. Simply use the buttons at the 
end of each post to keep hopping! 

Here is my project for this blog hop, and I have chosen to use the fabulous Peachy Keen stamp set and On Film framelit bundle and one of the stamps from Happy Watercolor.

I stamped the various elements in Bermuda Bay, Basic Black, Soft Sky and Baked Brown Sugar. 

The filmstrip, both arrows and the cute little camera are all from the On Film Framelits. I also cut out an extra 'lens' for the camera, popped it up on dimensionals and then covered with Crystal Effects to give a 3D glassy effect. 

I made this as a 'thank you' card as I plan to give it to a work colleague who has been giving me lessons on how to use the digital SLR he sold me and passing on his knowledge from his photography course!

Now, if you have this bundle, you will know that the camera stamp and the camera framelit don't line up as they are both the same way round, meaning you need to cut the camera from the back of the stamped image, rather than the front, which as you can imagine is somewhat tricky! Well, not anymore!

I have made a little video I made on how to cut it out, the easy way! And for those of you that haven't yet bought the bundle and may have been put off by this little quirk, now there's no excuse! I will be posting the video on Monday morning, so don't forget to come back and take a look!

EDIT: You can now view the video tutorial HERE!
