I enjoy watching your vids. What is the name of your youtube page, Id like to see the other ones you have.
And now after watching this vid, I want a xyron. Lol. I just love how its neat & clean when it comes to the sparkle effect. And Ive tried your technique for the ribbon but It didnt really work for me. I must try a diff ahesive instead.
Thanks for sharing. As always, it gives me ideas.
