10 Minute Craft dash #19 – and first YT video!!!!

Hello!  I’m here with a card for the current 10 Minute Craft Dash Challenge over at Pretty Pink Posh.  This is the first time I’ve played along but it was LOADS of fun and I can’t wait to do it again!!

I also thought it was a great time to make my first ever You Tube Video!  I have been pondering for a while about doing one and recently bought a sweet little pocket camcorder just for the purpose!  I love watching crafty videos on YT and have seen quite a few made for the Craft Dash challenge so this is what finally made me take the leap from thinking about it to doing it!

Here’s are the colours for the challenge :



And here is my video and the card I created :


As you can see I couldn’t resist adding the sequins – I guess that means I failed the challenge doesn’t it?  My 13 year old tech-expert son told me – I am a total “noob” (?) when it comes to this so hopefully with a bit of practice I will be able to offer a slightly more polished performance in future videos!!!  I won’t have my head in so much for one thing, lol!!

I am actually working on my next video already – a craft haul I got today from Simon Says Stamp!!

See you soon,

Caryn xxx


  1. Hi Caryn,

    Loved your video, great to see how other people do stuff. The 10 min dash is not for me as I do a bits, look at it, come back to it etc, I don’t like rushing, lol. Can’t wait to see more though, love that you created that lovely card in such a short space of time. I will of course have to Case it, along with many of your others, especially your clearly besotted cards, love them. Keep the inspiration coming. 🙂


  2. Caryn, I know I already told you, but you did a GREAT job with your first video. Seeing you create was so much fun! And while I would prefer to actually be THERE with you, this is the next best thing. 🙂 Love how you used the colors and I agree, the yellow cardbase was a great last minute decision!

    Thank you for playing in the 10 Minute Craft Dash!

  3. I haven’t watch the video yet but your card is gorgeous! Perfection!

  7. Hi Caryn,

    I was sooo EXCITED to see your very first video! I just made my first video as well. You did a GREAT job especially being under so much pressure to complete a card in 10 minutes or less.. Super cute card too!!! I look forward to more of your videos.
