Flower Soft: Floral Card Making DVD

Product Details

  • Manufacturer/Brand; Katy Sue Designs/Flower Soft
  • Item number 0311001FCMDVD
  • RRP at time of writing: £12

Reason For Buying

I’ve had my eye on this for years, and when it was on special offer on C&C in combination with a selection box of flower soft I went for it. I’ve seen flowersoft demo’d on C&C but wanted a quick an easy reference of techniques.

Purpose

QUTOE: Floral Cardmaking demonstates the simple techniques for creating beautiful miniature flower arrangements and floral backgrounds with flowersoft. Noreen takes  you step by step through 6  different projects that you can make at home, including how to use flowersoft with your stamps and decoupage. After each project we take you to the gallery, which is full of wonderful cards to inspire you further. Just sprinkle a little imagination and transform your card making.

Pros/Cons

Pros

  • Great introduction to flowersoft
  • 6 projects show all the way through
  • All items for projects clearly shown
  • Projects are well explained
  • Photo gallery of further projects are also described as to what was used with them
  • Run time 133 minutes
  • Great for the total novice to card making

Cons

Staying awake! The content is superb its just Noreen has such a quiet reassuring voice and the soothing music sent me to nod. Watch one project then go play. The DVD is divided into chapters so you can easily navigate to a particular project.

Ideal for a total newbie to card making but if you are more experienced crafter you may find the projects a bit simplistic.

Build Quality

Excellent. Production quality is first class.

  • Lighting; Excellent, everything well-lit
  • Sound; Excellent, no intrusive music during demos. Only music is at the start and during the gallery sections
  • Camera work; Excellent, great close-ups during demos and during photogallery.

Value for Money

Good. All concepts are explained well and several different styles covered. You will get more from this as a total newbie to card making, or if you haven’t seen many demo’s on Create and Craft.

Would I buy it Again?

Yes, even though I’m more experience with card making it still stands as a great reference point for techniques using Flower Soft

Summing up

If you can’t get to a class, get this DVD. This takes you through a wide selection of styles and projects. Noreen has a gentle approach – ideal for newbies, if you are a more advanced crafter, take the concepts and techniques further with your own styles. Flower Soft is a versatile product and could be used for all kinds of creative projects.
