YouTube Channel

Hello and thank you for your interest in my YouTube Tutorials.

I am having to temporarily change my blog series on the channel due to having to work at home and home school my children too. I’m finding it difficult to manage everything.

So, I will still be uploading tutorials but these will not be set days or times it will be on an ad-hoc basis. I will publish in advance when a tutorial is due to be uploaded – I hope this doesn’t put you off but as you know, it’s an extremely difficult time for everyone just now. The lockdown is affecting us all differently.

My YouTube Channel is under my business name Smiths Crafty Creations and you will find various project tutorials uploaded every week.

My videos are mostly unedited as I like to bring you raw, real crafting, with lots of chat (and my mistakes too!). I don’t rehearse my tutorials and I tend not to plan my projects – I like to make it up as I go. Sometimes I have an idea in my head and it will turn out completely different during filming – that’s what I love about crafting – it encourages our creativity to come out.

YouTube Channel Premieres

I do like to premiere all of my YouTube videos which allows you, the subscriber to see what is scheduled over the coming weeks. It also allows you, the subscriber to chat together with other viewers during the broadcasting of the tutorial. The times for premieres vary each week as I like to make sure people from across the globe have the chance to chat together too. When I am able I will join live chat also as it gives me the opportunity to chat with you and to get to know you.

Unfortunately I am not able to chat in all of them as I have a small family at home, I also work part-time during the day and suffer from various chronic health conditions and then there’s life in general – sometimes “life” gets in the way – but please do chat together, make new friends, and have fun.

My YouTube Channel’s weekly schedule

Make it Monday – Live Premiere Timings: 4 pm

Every Monday without fail, I upload a #makeitmonday project tutorial. These can be anything from cards to 3d projects, fancy folds, picture frames, etc.

All About that DSP – Live Premiere Timings: 7 am

Every Wednesday I upload a project that showcases our beautiful Designer Series Papers whether as a focal point of the card, or as a love it chop it style. It’s nice to have the DSP do all the talking for you in terms of card designing.

Simple Stamping – Live Premieres Saturdays at 8 am

Every Saturday I upload a simple stamping project. These can be aimed at beginners, casual or the more avid, experienced crafters. Sometimes less is more and simple stamping is a great way to learn the basics.

Sunday Specials using Chipboard or Recycled Cardboard – Live Premieres Sundays at 6 pm

This is my latest new series to encourage not only myself, but you too, to try new projects using chipboard and / or recycled cardboard from day to day household item packaging. This series is not guaranteed every Sunday, but when I do plan a project, a live premiere will be scheduled on YouTube for 6pm.
