This First video is a Technique that I can’t believe I’ve forgotten to share with you all here at AboveRubiesStudio.com – I did this as a technique tip and so happy to share it here now! This is about using Viva Decor Pearl Pens (Which you all know are one of my #1 Favorite Products of all time for embellishing!) for creating strands of pearls that you can use for Jewelry, cards, scrapbooks, lots and lots of uses – sky is the limit and in ANY color at all to make things match perfect… Take a Look:

This Next Video answers a Question I’ve received a few times about my Xyron Sticker Maker. Just how do you refill a sticker maker?  Let me show you!  Its really easy and its a GREAT tool!  Now I know some of you have said “I don’t like using the Xyron, it leaves glue boogers on my paper”.  Here’s a tip!  Grab a white pencil Eraser and run it gentle across your shape once you pull it through your Xyron, the write eraser quickly removes the boogies! Hope it Helps some of you!

This final video today is a Scrapbook Layout Idea that was a LOT of fun for my Summer Time Photos at the Beach, but its also using a household item to create a fun pouch and give a different flare to your 12×12 page!  Have you ever thought about using a Brown Paper Bag in Scrapbooking?  Well Here is how I did it! Enjoy:

    Absolutely adorable. I love the way you just go with flow of your creativity. You are remarkably talented. What a a blessing it is to watch and to listen while you put together the scrapbook pages and other projects you share with your viewers. Your “light” sure does shine. Thank you for the encouragement.

  • Donna Dial

    Wow, love these ideas and the scrapbook layout in todays videos. I dont remember seeing it before. Looking forward to videos every day!! Thanks again for all your time and inspiration.

  • Debbie Bennett

    Thanks Megan for sharing some “older” videos. Is there anyway I can find the paper bag album tutorial?
    It sounds interesting.

  • Shawn

    I love your layout where you used the paper bag. I have a question regarding the use of the paper bag. How are you able to use the paper bag since it’s not acid free or lignin free? Did you spray it with something prior to using it on your layout?

  • Denisse


    I cannot describe the feeling every time I open my e-mail and found your videos. All your ideas and tips have given me the courage to start creating. I’m new to this wonderful word of crafting and you have been my inspiration to start making cards and incorporating your techniques to my work. Hope you don’t mind and please keep it coming….

  • Dianne Bell

    Hi, Megan,
    Don’t know how I missed these videos from the past, but I did. Love the Pearl wired idea. Never thought of that myself. however, that is why I watch your videos as much as i can. I especially loved the scrapbook layout, that was gorgeous. I do cards mostly and thought I may incorporate that into one on a smaller scale. Love new ideas. TFS.

  • Helen

    I love that you take the time to explain everything in detail and simply. Since finding your website I always look forward to learning something new. Thank you for caring and inspiring us. Don’t ever change…

  • agnes

    how wonderful all the things you can do with those viva pens. i wouldn’t even bother doing the back unless you need too.
    and the age is so very pretty. i do too love dimension. great pocket also! 🙂

  • Linda W

    I have the smallest Xyron. I don’t use it and glad I didn’t invest in a larger one. For me, to use an eraser to carefully remove the glue booger, it just as easy for me to carefully use a glue with a thin tip.
    I love the technique of making pearls with the Viva Decor pens.
    I love how you mix all those patterned papers (and it works!) together so beautifully.

  • Brenda

    Love all the tips and tricks!! That layout is gorgeous, I so love how you mixed your papers by choosing and cutting elements from it that you liked. Very cool idea that I’ve never thought about doing!!

  • Jen Johnson

    I’m so thankful I found your blog site and store. Your videos are awesome! I already downloaded the cricut settings. It’s helped me save so much time and paper. Thank you, for showing how to change the cartridge on the Xyron. If you have a chance, I’ve had trouble with the Scotch Advanced Tape Glider. Can you show us how to change the tape cartridge? I would appreciate it.

  • DianeK

    Your tutorials always make me smile! Now i have some ideas for using papers that have individual elements ready for embellishing pages or cards.

  • Sandra Christman

    What great tips. I never thought of the pearl idea. I remember going to many stores looking for some beads that I didn’t mind cutting for a project. I won’t have to do that again. The page is cute and what a wonderful idea to use the remaining paperbag for. You have give me several tips today. Thank you, for being a caring and generous in sharing your knology with the reat if us.

  • Gayla

    I’m kind of new here but just want to say how much I’m enjoying your blog. Three turorials in one day is sooo over the top! I love your style and we could scrap together since I work about like you do. I just love seeing that others enjoying making a page without all the extra geegaws. I often pick a paper line and just don’t have embellishments that match and cut thing down to make my own without running to the craft store for more. I think it’s really the way a lot of us work and it’s nice to have that validated by a pro like you that has so much at hand. I’m glad I found you and I’m liking you more and more.

  • Shelly

    OMG I sure like your videos and letting us know what kind of things you are going to offer. Thank you. You are such a creative person. I finally got myself to get “my creative juices” running yesterday! I miss my girlfriends down in San Diego area to do crafts together!! Hope Sean “new” job is doing well. Have a great week!

  • MommyMe

    What a treat to see and hear so much of you in one post! I really have missed your videos, and enjoyed all of these, despite not having a Xyron. I’m grateful for all you share with us.

  • Darcy Mitchell

    I watched all 3 videos today. I call myself pattern paper challenged and have attended many CK classes over the years, still shy away from it. I loved how you put your LO together and it is inspiring me to go create. Too bad I”m at work. I have 4 xryons and love them.I even have an extra X that my granddaughter has taken over. Anyone who has not invested, I encourage you to do so, it makes life easier. Can’t wait to try the pearls, those are soooo pretty.

    Thank you for your videos and can’t wait to see what it next.
