Switcher Studio Tutorial Videos

#switchercreator #madewithSwitcher #SwitcherStudio
This blog post is a bit more specific today and geared towards anyone who has been curious about what I do behind the scenes to create my videos: how I set up my studio, what equipment I use, and more specifically how I use the Switcher Studio program/app so I can bring graphic overlays, multiple cameras, etc. into my recordings. 

I had been getting more and more requests recently from fellow Stampin’ Up! demonstrators about all of this. So I had a plan already in the works to record some videos where I could bring them (and anyone else who was curious) “behind the scenes” with me.

Then Switcher Studio reached out to me and asked me to partner with them. I was thrilled, because not only was I getting the support (sponsoring and endorsement) from this awesome company, but I was even more motivated to accomplish this goal sooner than later so I could help my peers.

I’ve broken all this information down into a series of four videos. They are available to view on my YouTube channel. But now I’m sharing all those videos here in today’s blog post so anyone who is interested can access them all in one place. You can just click on each image below if you are already on my blog post. Or you can click on these links:

I keep my 12×12 papers and cardstock in these holders. And I use the 6×6 paper holders for my envelopes and card/envelope packs. You may notice that they are painted. You can choose to do this to yours as well, but make sure that you seal the wood by spray painting the surfaces first. Once you have sealed the wood with spray paint, you can then paint with a water-based latex paint to match the décor of your room.

I’m using my new 6x6 Paper Holders from Stamp-n-Storage to hold and organize my precut cards and envelope packs! - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

These next two photos are from a couple years ago. But I totally love the Stampin’ Ink Pad Holder for Color Families (and the Side-by-Side Marker Holder to the left of it). This ink pad holder is just gorgeous showing off the 10 upright reinkers for each color family above each column. And it aligns so nicely with the corresponding markers adjacent to each row!

I reorganized my crafting space with a few new Stamp-n-Storage units so I could fit the new Stampin’ Up! ink pads. And yay! If you’re also reorganizing your space, you are doing it at the right time… Stamp-n-Storage is having a fabulous Spring 2018 sale through June 18th!

One more resource that may help you when creating your crafting space is to take a peek the video and blog post that I shared when I completed the renovations to my room almost five years ago.

Resurfaced Table Tops for my Craft Room

Have I mentioned how amazing my dad is? A little over 10 months ago, I had been photographing many of my projects and recording my videos against surfaces that were basically printed wood-grain paper backdrops that I had glued down to large pieces of foam board. (I bought 4 rolls of these backdrops on Amazon.) You can see these backdrop boards in my photos in this post and in this video. But over time, these “paper” backdrops started getting beat up and torn.

So I asked my dad if he could resurface my main two tables in my craft room/studio so they would just be completely covered with a wood-grain look, be sturdy, look good in my room, and also be ideal for showing my creations in my videos and photos. After shopping around, we found GripStrip™ Resilient Plank Flooring floorboards from Home Depot, and I purchased them in three colors: Pacific Pine (my favorite which now covers my tables), Sandpiper Oak, and Alberta Spruce. Why did I buy two other colors? Because my wonderful dad not only resurfaced my two main crafting tables, but he made portable backdrop boards so I would have other choices to photo and video against. In fact, yesterday I pulled out my Sandpiper Oak backdrop and had that on my table top while I recorded my YouTube Live. I think that’s what reminded me that I forgot to share this craft room remodel project with you.

I know this isn’t exciting information for everyone reading my post today. Only some of you are fellow Stampin’ Up! demonstrators that make videos and/or photo your projects. But many of you ARE crafters that may be sick of your table surfaces. Hahaha! And I found this a much more affordable and time saving option than searching out all new tables.

These floor boards are smooth, thin, lighter weight than many others on the market, and connect together easily. My dad did all the connecting and cutting to make them fit the surface area of my tables. Then he just put supports in the corners to keep the new surfaces from shifting or lifting. My boards aren’t glued to my original table tops. This way I can change them later if I wish. (He’s so smart.)

Here are photos of him assembling them to make the boards into backdrops. He started by connecting three boards together.

My dad made photo/video backdrop boards with plank flooring boards & ¼ inch plywood. Click here to get more details and see photos of the assembly process. - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Notice the adhesive blue strips on the two edges.

Those adhesive strips needed to be cut off and added to the undersides of the opposite edges.

Then he glued them together with Liquid Nail.

In this photo above you can see one of the supports in the corner of one of my resurfaced table tops. Yep…one on each corner was all that was needed to keep my new surfaces from shifting or lifting.

After glueing the backdrop floorboards to the 1/4″ plywood, he planed and filed the edges and corners to smooth and finish the backdrops.

Since I purchased a whole box of each of the two grays and two boxes of the brown, I had extra planks. So bless his heart, he ended up making several backdrops that many of my local demonstrator friends gladly grabbed up for just the cost to cover the supplies it took to make them.

I hope this helped some of you looking for photo/video backdrop ideas or craft room remodel ideas.

Vellum Slide-Out Pocket Fun Fold Card

I’m playing with fun fold cards again. (surprise surprise) And I’ve really been into bringing Vellum Cardstock into the mix of those cards. I love the challenge of having transparency in parts to show off the depth of the card while at the same time trying to conceal adhesives. The Silver Elite Retreat invitation I made for Cheryl is one example. And my upcoming project in the March 2020 All Stars Exclusive Tutorials being released tomorrow is another.

This time I made a vellum-based slide-out pocket fun fold using the Lily Impressions Designer Paper, the Under My Umbrella Stamp Set, and Umbrella Builder Punch. Cheryl, my mom and I made the blue version of this card at my Silver Elite Retreat this month. And the purple one became my project for my past Wednesday’s Facebook Live Online Paper Crafting Class.

In my class I also shared tips and tricks for making this card without any adhesive showing AND the differences between this card and ones I’ve made before – what my thinking was when I changed up the measurements.

I uploaded the recorded version of my Facebook Live video to my YouTube channel (since I know not everyone is ON Facebook). And then I was able to share it here in my blog post. Be sure to watch the video (you can just click on this image below if you are already on my blog), scroll through the close-up photos, check out the products list below, and then let me know if you have any questions.

I hope you enjoyed what I shared in this video. Click here to see the slide-out pocket fun folds I made with the February 2020 Paper Pumpkin kit. Click here to see some fun ones that I shared on September 29, 2018. Below are measurements, more close-up photos, and a product list for the cards I demonstrated.

By the way I forgot to mention that I added extra rhinestones on the Vellum in the “It’s Your Day” area of the card. After adding those two rhinestones, I then put glue dots behind them on the other side of the Vellum to connect the Vellum to the Whisper White layer.

Products I used… See below for a complete list of products linked to where you can find them in my online store.

New Envelope Organization & SnS Sale

Stamp-n-Storage products are such a huge part of my crafting space. I love that the owners of this company, Brett & Mary Haugen know what paper crafters are looking for. And I love the high quality and versatility of their products.

I’ve had a few new pieces waiting in the wings for me to paint and add into my space. There was a warm weekend in mid-October, so I took advantage of it.

Their products are shipped sanded and ready to be used in their natural state. And they ARE quite beautiful in their natural state. Most leave them unpainted. But I like to paint my units white to match the decor of my room. So I first have to put down a few coats of spray paint to seal the wood. That has to be done outdoors in a well-ventilated area with temperatures that aren’t too hot or too cold. Then I take them indoors and paint them with my indoor latex (water-based) paint that matches my room color. With the base coat of the spray paint to seal the wood, applying the latex paint later will not cause any wood swelling to occur.

And now I have new units for my space!

When Stamp-n-Storage first introduced their 6×6 Paper Holder, I got one right away. Click here to see where I was going to put it and how I thought I was going to use it. But because I already had a system that worked for my designer papers and I had a stronger need elsewhere, I decided NOT to use it for my 6×6 papers. Instead, I can now organize and store my packs of cards & envelopes thanks to these fabulous units! AND I customized the units…I removed some of the shelves so some of the spaces were larger for my thicker stacks.

I’m using my new 6x6 Paper Holders from Stamp-n-Storage to hold and organize my precut cards and envelope packs! - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

My packs that don’t stick out as far are on the top: Whisper White Medium Envelopes, Very Vanilla Medium Envelopes, Clear Envelopes, Whisper White Notecards & Envelopes, Very Vanilla Notecards & Envelopes, and 3×3 Envelopes.

I’m using my new 6x6 Paper Holders from Stamp-n-Storage to hold and organize my precut cards and envelope packs! - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

On the bottom I have the ones that stick out a little further: Magnolia Lane Cards & Envelopes, Assorted Memories and More Cards & Envelopes, Bird Ballad Cards & Envelopes, Silver Foil-Edged Cards & Envelopes, Gold Foil-Edged Cards & Envelopes, Scalloped Notecards & Envelopes, and Magnolia Lane Small Memories & More Cards & Envelopes. I even have a few extra slots for more sets.

I’m using my new 6x6 Paper Holders from Stamp-n-Storage to hold and organize my precut cards and envelope packs! - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

I have to warn you that even if you seal the units with spray paint and then paint them, you will still probably experience tightness with getting your shelves back in simply because of the added layers of paint. So I recommend using a rubber mallet to hammer back in the shelves (with a towel in-between for added cushion). I only messed up on one corner of one shelf. Nothing that a little extra paint didn’t cure once it was in.

Preparing, Painting, and Pleading

There are piles ALL over our house this week. I have some fun stuff that I’m working on.

The biggest piles were prepared, packaged up and are now waiting to be picked up by my mail carrier this afternoon…my supplies, gifts, make-n-takes, and products for those that purchased my Gift of Fall Paper Pumpkin Palooza To-Go.

This is an amazingly huge event that sold out in less than 3 days! So I’m hoping to offer it again with another Paper Pumpkin kit in a few months. Be sure you are signed up to receive my newsletters so you get notice for it right away.

Another pile was in my garage when I took this photo and is made up of my new Stamp-n-Storage units. I spray painted all of them to prime/seal the wood. (You NEED to do this if you are going to paint them in any way. This wood is strong but very porous and will get ruined if you don’t first coat it with spray paint.)

I have moved them indoors. And after Halloween is over I’ll take them downstairs to paint them with the white latex paint that coordinates with my other SnS units. Be sure you are subscribed to my blog so you get emails each time I share. I can’t wait to show you what I’ll be storing in these new organizational pieces.

Luke, my 12-year-old is taking a drawing class this year and has been enjoying making “graffiti doodles.” He’s been watching YouTubers draw and color in these imaginative illustrations. And he now wants to take all my Stampin’ Blends Markers away from me! Eek! In fact he asks (begs and pleads with me) many times a day if I will buy him a set.

Luke has discovered that Stampin’ Blends Markers work great for his graffiti doodles. - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

If you’ve never tried these markers, they are amazing. Similar to Copics, Stampin’ Blends are alcohol-based markers that blend with ease for intense, smooth color. Guess I have a new idea to add to the Christmas wish list for Luke.

Come see what I share on my blog… #stampyourartout - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Today at 11 AM Central Time I’ll be broadcasting live on my Facebook page and sharing some new products that will be available come November 1st. Hope you can join me!

Have a fun and safe Halloween tomorrow evening!
