A tag and layout for 13arts + A VIDEO TUTORIAL!!

Well hello everyone!

Sharing my DT projects with 13arts products is always an exciting time for me! mainly because I have usually created something outside my comfort zone as I NEVER really know what I will do when I open my box of amazing 13arts products :)) It really brings out the messy scraper in me LOL!

So anyway today I wanted to share a layout and a tag I created with 2 different collections from 13arts and ALL the beautiful flowers and embellishments that you can also find in the shop!

All the materials I have used here are available at the 13arts store HERE

To start with, here is my layout. 

"Love" by Nadia Cannizzo

I used the gorgeous Faces Of Spring  collection papers and stickers as well as mists and inks from 13arts. 

Today I also had a short video tutorial for you, just to give you an idea of how I created this. 

If you are interested, I now have a Youtube Channel where I plan on adding videos from time to time...

You can subscribe HERE 

It is the VERY first video I have done so please be gentle :) You will see a lot of hand motions.. At first I had planned on talking you through it, but it ended up being a 35 minute video so I thought you would find it too boring, so I sped up the whole thing and hopefully next time I can do better. 

As this is my very first video tutorial I WOULD LOVE some feedback for next time. I am a bit addicted to these now and I really want to know what you think! Also if there is ANYTHING you want me to do a video on PLEASE let me know here in the comments sections, or email me 

To be truthful.. I never know why anyone wants to see what I create.. I am not trying to devalue my work, but I just think "why would anyone want to know that"?  But I do get asked things all the time so I would appreciate you giving me some ideas on what i can show you on a video. Big or small , I do not mind :) 

A HUGE shout out to my friend Kelly Foster, who is extremely helpful and patient and helped me work some things out, as well as the super talented Miranda Edney too who answered some questions too! Girls, Thank you SO much :) If it were not for your tips I would STILL be trying to work things out LOL!

  1. Nadia!!! YOU did fantastic on this video!! I haven't made one before either- so this was amazing to me! great project and I loved seeing it come together!

  2. Oh wow! I loved watching your video Nadia! It was great to see how you create. You are such an inspiration. xx

  3. Well done on creating your first video Nadia, looks great. I LOVE watching scrapping videos and seeing other peoples processes. It doesn't matter how experienced as a scrapper you are you always learn something new or can be inspired in a different way :)

  4. Fantastic video and what an exquisite page (as usual!) Stunning tag too x

  5. Nadia your Lo is amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

  6. That video was so great! It was so nice to see your creative process (and I can't belive how you managed to make tha gorgeous layout in 30 minutes!)

  7. First of all thanks for making the video! Your pages fall in the category "gorgeous layered mixed media pages with flowers" that I love but couldn't do in my life, so I like watching videos that show the process. When I see a finished project I think that it's something really really difficult and complex, and then you show it step by step and it's not so "unapproachable":)
    The length is perfect - I think 10-15 minutes length is the best in most cases. And the speed is good - not too fast to make me dizzy%)
    I don't mind hands, but the shadows distract a bit, so you could think about light source placement.
    Oh, and I love talking (not only as the way to explain the process but to hear actual voice, it makes virtual person more real, I don't know how to explain it). Text comments also are ok with neutral background music, but I need to know what glue you use! lol and how you choose your brushes.

    Όσον αφορά την απορία σου γιατί θέλουμε να δούμε κάτι που δημιουργείς, η απάντηση είναι απλή - γιατί είναι ωραίο. Και γιατί μπορώ να δω κάτι που δεν θα είχα σκεφτεί μόνη μου και να μάθω.

  8. I really, really enjoyed your video! It's so nice to get a peek behind the process of creating your amazing lay-outs. I really love this page! The soft blue looks wonderful with this photo. Also your tag is amazingly beautiful. A great example of 'pretty in pink' :)
