You may remember that earlier this spring I visited the set of Scrapbook Soup and filmed two segments.
If you follow along with me on Twitter or Facebook, you may know that last spring I was a guest on Scrapbook Soup for a few segments. I demonstrated how to use the Brother Scan N Cut to make stencils and masks with the rubber stamps you already have and then made a card. It’s an idea that I’ve shared on my blog and I’d already made a YouTube video about it….but geez, it looks so much more impressive on TV!!
Here’s the segment if you’d like to watch it- it hasn’t gone live on PBS yet, so you get a sneak peek! The series will begin on August 12, 2014, so check your local listings. 🙂
I’d love any questions or feedback you’d like to share in the comments section!
Here’s more info on the whole season:
