Hi readers! Happy Tuesday! We have another bright and cheery share from the fantastic Laura Bassen, who reminds you in this video, the importance of using a crock pot! ;) While I am definitely starting to really look forward to my favorite season (Autumn), this thinking of you card reminds me to soak up the rest of the warm weather and enjoy it! From the Scuba (dooba doo) color, to the Splashy Waves, and Hello Sunshine, you might just want to hold onto summer a bit longer too!! Be sure to watch Laura’s video!

  1. As always…a real winner! Wonderful design and color blending. Laura, you can send me a “thinking of you” card anytime you want. Your cards always make me smile. Thanks for another great project idea.

  2. Laura’s videos always make me happy..She is Amazing . Happy card is amazing too.Thanks For sharing. Big hugs from Sweden!

  3. I know exactly what you mean about the crock pot!! I too can’t thinkn that far ahead, but then at 3 in the afternoon I’m kicking myself….”a what am I going to make for dinner? I should have used my crock pot”. Lol. Love your colorful card

  4. I agree that to use a crock pot, you need to be double organised, first to have the ingredients and then to get it cooking. Beautiful cards, love the sea colours. Thanks for the inspiration. R

  5. Love that card! It’s totally “goodie goodie gumdrops!”
    Thanks for cheering me up on a bad day, Laura – your card rocks, and so do you!

  6. Yes, I did enjoy the video, Laura! I wouldn’t miss one of your videos because they always make me chuckle – I love your sense of humour! Your card is gorgeous and your ink blending is perfect!

  7. This card is so refreshing – I want to take a dip in the water (no sharks here). Enjoyed her video so much – like being with a friend just talking and making art.

  8. ANOTHER FABULOUS card and FUN tutorial – THANK YOU Laura!!!
    GOOD LUCK with your crock pot planning!!!
    PS – it was cool to see that your Tombow looked so WELL LOVED … just like mine :)

  9. Laura, your videos are so fun. I love your laugh and the running commentary while you work. The card is wonderful. Thanks for sharing.

  10. Yippee! Candy! Seriously, that summertime card is so pretty. I am creating a summertime stash of dies and papers just for summer… which unfortunately is ending soon, but there’s always next year.

  11. Always love Laura’s videos and cards! I’m with her – given all that free time, I’d probably waste it trying to decide what to do with it!

  12. F-U-N card!! I adore the colors Laura used. Her style of cardmaking is right up my alley. This card makes me want to be sailing somewhere. The sequins add the perfect touch.

  13. Wonderfully designed card! I especially love the ombre effect! AND your presentation! I hope the house isn’t too quiet with all the kiddos at school!

  14. Another great card and video from Laura. She never ceases to amaze (or amuse) me! Thanks for the tips on die cutting and blending. As for the crock pot, I am totally in denial. I will not need it..summer will be here forever..;)
