Tute Tute!! Another video Tutorial!

I had a couple of questions sent to me that I thought I would address really quickly, then on to the video!!

Jackie asked.....Do you use a video or still camera that does video and what software do you use to edit your videos?

I use my digital camera that has video capabilities. I have a Kodak digital camera and it records in a quicktime format. I use a program called MOVtoAVI to convert the quicktime video to an MPEG first because the software I use doesn't recognize quicktime, then I use Windows Movie Maker to edit the video and add music, titles, and credits. Windows Movie Maker was already installed on my laptop from the factory! I don't think I know everything there is to know about it yet, but this only my 2nd video, so I think I'll get better at it as I go!

Do you have someone really patient to video you?

NOPE!!! If you saw the way I rigged up my camera you would probably die laughing!! I used the strap and lens cover that is attached to the camera and I hung it from the light fixture over my table!!! I moved my table until my workspace was lined up with the camera!!! I'll have to take a picture of my camera dangling up there!! Although for this tute, I used a tripod! I think I like the first way better though! The stupid tripod was in my way and I had to work from the side. The other way I could sit directly in front of my workspace without my head being in the video! I think I'll go back to the rigged up way!!

Now on to the good stuff!!
I have a birthday party to go to this afternoon for my husband's cousin that is turning 6 and I thought he would love a spinner card! If you don't know how to make one, then get ready to be astounded by how very easy they are to make!!! Using the Word Window Punch by Stampin Up makes these super fast and easy!! One tip I have for you is to make sure your cardstock is big enough so when you put it in the punch you can put it all the way in against the back of the punch so you don't have to try to line it up on your own! Let the punch do the work for you! I hope you enjoy it!!
