A new bewitching video!

Hello Friends! I am just a wee bit late on wishing you all a Happy Halloween, but seeing as how it is my very favorite holiday, I was so wrapped up in my celebratory festivities, I didn't get around to editing my latest video set in time for the 31st!
I am super excited to share this tutorial set with you as the technique and the project can be used year-round and are both quite versatile!
The pictured banner below was my attempted contest entry for the Gypsy contest, but to make a long story short, I missed the deadline time due to time differences and was unable to enter. Once I found out that I'd missed it, I spruced it up a bit more with a few additional carts to make the end cap pendants cuter.

Now that the newest Gypsy updates are available, it seems I will have my hands full over the coming weeks re-doing some of my previous videos, as the newest added features make things like word books so much easier to accomplish! With the first trimester of the school year coming to a close, October was a busy month for me, but I am hoping to be able to make videos more frequently for you over the coming weeks, so keep checking back for updates, friends! :)

And without further babbling, I present to you, today's video set:
Technique: Creating Shadows
Project: Banners

Part 1

Part 2

If you create a banner yourself, I'd love to see it! Please share your creations by e-mailing attachments to me at, or leaving a link from my comments page here; I will feature any projects you share on my blog so others can see what variations you all come up with!
I hope you all have a fabulously wonderful weekend!

Hugs and hoots,
