Video Demonstration on the Shaving Creme Technique

For some reason, I thought this video needed a personal introduction. I am not an "on camera" kind of girl. What you see here in 60 seconds, took me at least an hour to record. I do still have the rest of the footage, and might be persuaded to create an "outtakes" video so that you can crack up too... : ) Just kidding, I don't think I'll ever be that brave.
I got to the point where as I was recording with the webcam, I named one of the takes "Take 2004" because I got tired of counting.
Obviously, it wasn't the 2000th take, but it sure seemed like it. At least it bought me a little peace and quiet. If it appears that something was about to make me laugh, it was.... ME! For some reason, I laugh when I see myself on the screen. As you know with a webcam, you can see exactly what is being recorded as it is being recorded. So now we know, I really do crack myself up! : )
My next venture is along these lines, so I need to get used to it, right? I'm almost finished with the video I promised a long time ago, so don't be surprised if you see that one soon...that is, if I can stop laughing at myself!
The stamp can be seen in the NEW CATALOG on pages 78-79.

Hi Jacki! Great video, loved seeing your smiling face in the intro! And I just might have to try that shaving cream technique now -- I've always avoided it in the past because I thought it would be too messy, but you make it look like it's not going to be so bad!

Hugs :)

Great video, Jacki! I love your card; so pretty, and what a great stamp. I have heard of the shaving cream technique but have never tried it, so this was helpful to actually watch how it is done. Thanks for putting this together to share!

A picture may be worth a thousand words, but a video is worth 100,000! I've never tried the shaving cream technique, but I think I'm ready to now!
