Hi everyone, Gaby here with the announcement I've been talking about! The Gab with Gaby Shop is now open for business! I am so excited about this and I am currently stocking items from The Greeting Farm.  Avery Elle will be next and that will be followed by one more announcement that I am even more excited about.  I decided to open this shop because I wanted to sell the items that I enjoy using and this seemed like the best way to do that.  Look for the stock in the shop to grow and eventually carry some one of a kind stamps.  You can check out the shop here.

Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting!

How to Make a Magic Slider Card

Hi everyone! Today I will be showing you how to make a Magic Slider Card using some supplies you already have around.  I am using nesting heart dies from Spellbinders, Neenah Solar White Card Stock in 80# and 110#, Copic Markers, Staz-On Ink, Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, and Distress Ink; all things I have in my craft room.  These cards are super fun to make and they allow a lot of room for creativity.  You can use the traditional shape of a rectangle, or you can use any other shape you have in your die collection.  It would even be fun to do one of these with a jar stamp/die!  Check out the video below for how to make one of your own.  


I did not include the dimensions for this because unless you are using this exact set of dies, it will not be very helpful.  The main thing to remember is that you need enough space on each side of the window for the slider to fit in with about 1/4" left for the edges of the stopper, so your slider does not come out of the card.  I wanted to be sure that my coloring did not show through even though I wanted the card to open like a regular card.  

I hope you enjoyed this video and I will be trying to get on a regular posting schedule this year with reviews and craft ideas.  Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting! :)
