Fellow bloggers this is a call for help.

As you all can see I have just begun blogging, and well I LOVE IT!! However, i am seeing lots and lots of new things I do not know how to use or what to do when/if I get them. I was hoping some of you could help me out. So, here they are in no particular order, lol, my questions.

1) Please leave me a comment with links to challenges or blogs that you contribute to I really like to take challenges it encourages me to think outside my box and try new thing.

2) What are digital stamps and cut files? How do you use them?

3)  For anyone who does you tube videos, How do you edit the raw video?

4) Also list your one MUST HAVE!! for a Card Making or Scrapbooking supply!

5) How can I (eventually) do a challenge with the box at the bottom for people to add their blogs and pictures to the challenge and not just a comment.

I truly have realized there are some warm helpful people out there so far, so I am sure you all will give me lots of tips, tricks and feedback!! This blogging community rocks!


  1. There's not enough room here to answer all those fabulous questions. I'll try to answer a few. My one product I couldn't do without for scrapping and cardmaking would be my Cricut. Since I already know that you have that since you've made a couple cards for Cricut Cardz challenge, I'll move on. The other item I couldn't do without is Digital Stamps. Since you ask about those a quick description...they are stamp elements that you print using your computer. I design for The Cutting Cafe that has printable stamps in a wide array. (
    You can go to this site and check out the tips, videos and tutorials on using the images. They also have cutting files that are available a couple different ways. For the cutting files you need software that will hook your computer to your Cricut machine. There are a some different options available out there--Sure Cuts A Lot and Make the Cut are just two. You can search for them on the internet. Hope this helps a little.

  2. Hi Liz, my name is martha from the card boutique, those are really good questions specially the one about how to make your own challenges,sorry I can't help you I'm also new in all this and to tell you the truth computers are not my thing lol.. one thing i can recommend you is to go to all the blogs you can and click in the blinks or buttons they have in the sidebar that's how I'm finding out about challenges. Well, let me tell you why I'm here, I want you to go to my blog I have a little something fore you, hope you like it!!
