lori-andersonDo you have a “go-to” stack of favorite videos that are a guarantee to put a smile on your face? You may have seen the video before, but watching it makes you laugh, makes you cry or even inspires you. One of my favorite movies of all time is the movie Rudy, starring Sean Astin. It’s a movie about determination, hard work and daring to dream even when others tell you it’s a waste of time. It’s a movie that inspires me to try harder every day. Have you seen it?

Here at CK, we’ve got a stack of videos we’re pulling out to inspire you. This is the first post of a series that we’re calling “Video from the Vault” featuring CK videos from the past. This video features the talented Ali Edwards as she shares her four favorite tools with the readers of Creating Keepsakes. Check out the video and be inspired to go and create something wonderful. 

Enjoy watching videos like this one? We’re scheduling new video shoots with our team soon, so let us know what you’d like to see in an upcoming segment. We could be featuring a cool technique, a tip, a tool trick–whatever. Let us know what you’d like to learn by leaving a comment. We’ll add it to our list.

  1. I loved watching the video! I have a cricut so I have not bought very many punches but the more I see how versital and easy they are the more I want to add them to my collection!

  2. It would be great to see someone demonstrate how to use digital elements on a layouts.

  3. It might be fun to see what Ali’s favorites are now and if they have changed(not sure how long it has been since this was recorded). Or how about from concept to finished product type video to see someone’s process (maybe Ali’s, C.D.’s, Becky’s – oh, I know, Mou Saha’s – love her stuff)

  4. I love to see new tools and new products, things that make things easier. I’d also like to learn more about hybrid scrapping and digi elements, programs for digi scrapping.

  5. I love Ali E! Thank for sharing!

  6. Great video – I had never thought about turning the punch upside down before so I could see where I was punching (duh!). I agree with Jan above, it would be great to see a ‘from concept to finished page’ video so we can participate in someone’s process. This could be done for lots of your contributing editors and contributors, and I don’t think we’d get tired of it as everyone is different and we can take away things from everyone’s process to use ourselves.
    Thanks for the opportunity to comment on this!

  7. Now how cool is that? I love how you matched the labels set with the shape of the Nestabilities Labels I dies. I definitely see a lot of possibilities with this set!

  8. Love sets that co-ordinate with the spellbinders dies !!

  9. The videos can be a tip/trick, a product demo (or how 2 scrapbooking artists use the same product in two different ways), a page from start to finish (maybe one that’s featured in the magazine that month?), an innovative way to use something, any and all new techniques. Incorporating digital elements to create hybrid scrapbooking (using WORD or ELEMENTS preferably so a larger audience can relate).
    They dont have to be more than a couple of minutes long each – too long is boring, nevermind costly. Just short and sweet and to the point.
    So yes, I would LOVE to see videos – if a picture’s worth a thousand words, a video’s certainly worth The Dictionary.
