Wedding flowerbelt/hairband tutorial

Wedding flower belt tutorial
On monday there was a deadline for instructable's wedding contest. If you're not familiar with instructables it's a free site where people put up their tutorials in a huge selection of categories. Most of them are step-by-step instructions with photos (like mine), but some of them are with videos. The deadline was monday so naturally I came up with a brilliant project the same day. Nothing like a deadline to keep you motivated, am I right?

I've been thinking about making videotutorials, but I must admit I feel more comfortable with these photo step-by-step instructions. Do you think it's an ancient kind of way to teach or do you like these kind of tutorials?

The way I see it is that I'd rather take a good photoed tutorial than a youtube one with bad  lighting, lots of unnecessary talk and the feeling of it taking to long and not getting to the point. 
Let me know what you think. Would you rather see my tutorials videoed? Is that even the right word anymore? Recorded maybe?
 I'm just showing you some of the shots of the finished project. If you want the full tutorial, check it out on 
where you can vote for this project in the wedding contest (in top right corner of the project's frontpage).

Cricket - the sport, not the bug :)

 Has it been a week already? Sheesh time flies when you're having fun. Yesterday I went thriftshopping - found a lot of jewelry and accessories, but not much for crafting. 
However, I've been quite busy with other projects so stay tuned and make sure to check out my 
And don't forget to vote for me.
Let me show you my card for my last week as the guest designer for the 

This week we've been playing with stamps from 
who is also this week's sponsor.

I made the card using folds so it looks like he is standing at the top of the hill. I added "balls" by punching out circles and drawing lines on them. Together with the polkadot paper it turned out quite well. Sometimes you have bright ideas, but they don't translate too well when you realize them. This one I think was not one of them.
Hope you'll join us in our "sport" challenge at the I love promarker challenge blog. What's your take on it?
