As you know, I was at HSN (Home Shopping Network) last week. Here are a few peeks behind-the-scenes:
This is Myriah. She's awesome. She makes everything ScanNCut related happen and she takes very good care of me on the road. I was disastrously sick on this trip, so I felt super lucky to have her. (In the photo she's prepping stuff for our segments.)
Here's a closer look at the table:
Lots of fabric projects. My friend Kacia made the quilt.
You can see several different projects all made from the same basic doodles, and of course, I love cutting out titles using my own handwriting!
As I said, I was super duper sick, but I think I faked it pretty well.
Right before I went on, I gulped down hot water that had throat lozenges dissolved in it. I also had several "emergency cough drops" placed around the table in case of a coughing fit.
One of the things that I'm most proud of is this card:
We needed a quick project to show off the "Direct Cut" function of the machine and so in about 10 minutes, I put this card together backstage. It started as a piece of patterned paper -- black with white stars. The ScanNCut detected the stars, cut them out, and left me with a very cool piece of paper. I adhered the cut out paper (which would also make a great stencil) to a blank card with foam adhesive -- so that you'd really see those cut outs. I used one of the cut out stars as an embellishment (more foam adhesive) and I drew the word "Superstar" and let the ScanNCut cut around it so that I could adhere it to the card front. That built-in scanner really does open up the possibilities of what you can do!
And here I am (with a very good camera angle) showing off my fabulous creation:
I hope you enjoyed this backstage peek at my HSN experience!
Thanks for stopping by!
