I made a process video!

I love watching process videos.  If you're not a die hard scrapbooker, you may not be familiar with the term - it refers to videos wherein a scrapbooker records herself scrapbooking.  Usually the video is sped up and narrated, and the creator talks about her mindset, products and techniques used.  I love seeing how other people work and hearing the thought process behind decisions.  I'm always inspired and I frequently learn new things.

Needless to say, I've wanted to make one for a long time.  Oh, to be a cool kid!  But there's a lot of stuff to figure out.  How do you mount a camera? How the hey how you edit videos? Or add the narration??  It was all overwhelming, so I didn't do it.  Until I said something to Kerig, who became a dog with a bone until we ironed out enough details to at least make me try it.

Here's the layout that I made:

And here's the link to the video: Holla for Challah

Some notes:

I used SketchBook Pro - an app on my Kindle - to write the word Challah.  I then saved it as a .jpg file, imported it into the Silhouette software, traced it, did a little offset to fatten it up for easier cutting and cut it out.  I'm tickled with how it turned out.

I used Bebas Neue for the word "HOLLA" - and it's cut from Amy Tangerine's Plus One paper "Counterpart" I mention the My Mind's Eye alpha stickers - I used it for the word "for" but I failed to turn my camera back on, and it's also where I got the "Amazed by you" and "in love" stickers.

Okay, that's about it! Go watch the video! :D

Thanks for stopping by!
