Second Video in New Series-Glenda's Hints & How-Tos (GHHT)

Here we go with the next video in my new video series. This new series (GHHT) consists of short little hints from me; they're things that have helped me along the way grow as a crafter. No matter how small and sometimes maybe even insignificant they might seem on the surface, when you add them all together, they make up a whole lot of practical help.

This newest video is about sorting & keeping track of ALL your paper stacks. This applies to stacks of any size & from any manufacturer. In my case, I buy a LOT of stacks from Die Cuts With A View (DCWV). What I've learned is that because their colors can and do vary from season to season and year to year within their stacks, those colors may NOT work perfectly if you try to pair them from stacks from different seasons. Therefore I needed a way to be able to know which year each stack was from (not JUST the season!!). I also needed to be able to tell with just a very quick glance exactly WHAT type of papers were inside each stack.

See for yourselves below & then please-feel free to comment & let me know if any of these hints are something you think you might try out. Or comment if you have another idea along these lines--we're all here to learn & share. I absolutely LOVE hearing from my readers!!!


  1. I am with you on being addicted to paper... I just got the green stack and the glitter stack yesterday.. I so love the paper.. great tip Glenda... thanks so much for doing the videos

  2. So very smart, girl!

    I noticed the not matching colors but never thought to date them. If I can find my labeler I am going to make labels for my stacks...or then again maybe just write them like you! LOL

Cricut Markers using "Glenda's Marker Method"-Videos!

Do you want an easier & more precise way to use your Cricut Markers? For those of you who never saw my post waaaayyy last year on the Cricut MB outlining how to use my "Glenda's Cricut Marker Method", I finally taped some videos back in February (2009), but sadly, they were part of a group of Cricut videos I'd done that somehow disappeared off my hard drive. Then, after I recently did a "disk defrag" they magically reappeared, which was a THRILL!!!! So I finally got them edited & loaded up to YouTube. There is a "short" version of the Tutorial, which only talks about using the markers (using my "method", which does differ from the manufacturer's directions!) & shows how to change them, etc. Then there is an "extended" version, which is a 3-Part Tutorial that not only demonstrates how to use the "Glenda's Cricut Marker Method", but also gives some other "Hints & How-To's" in typica

BLOG CANDY Give-Away--made easier!! Plus, if you're a "FOLLOWER" of my blog- new & exciting info in this thread (hint: your votes=more entries!)

(This blog thread is to summarize and hopefully, make it easier for all of you to enter here to win my BLOG CANDY Give-Away.) Ohhhh, thank GOODNESS--now, finally: BACK TO CRAFTING!!! I've been soooo busy with all the orders for the Crafter's Companion products ( thank you!!! ) over the past week, I haven't been able to craft ANYTHING worthwhile. But I've been musing & thinking about what type of tutorials/projects I wanted to start with here on my blog (BESIDES the obvious, which are the Ultimate Crafter's Companion and the Rock-A-Blocks!!!), & of course, because I am the original "Gadget Queen" , who loves ALL gadgets & tools, most the things that popped into my mind were about different crafting "tools". Several of the ones ones that came to mind were those I think many of us bought with great enthusiasm when they were first released, but now, may not be getting as much use as they could be, or they may actually be gathering dust!!
