How to create a WOW! Instagram Reel

Hello my fellow creatives!
Have you posted a 🎥 'REEL' yet on Instagram?

They are QUICK and a lot of FUN to watch!

Please head over to the WOW! Instagram for all our
Design Teams Reels also!

I decided that I would try a new way in sharing my WOW! creations on social media and it has been a little challenging for this Generation X Artist.... to say the least.... ha ha.

On my first attempt, I ran out of time and could not show what the final art piece looked So, I tried to edit it in TikTok and I might have made it even worse 😂 .

Here is my first one for your viewing pleasure (no sound).

I am determined that I can do this 👍

Therefore, here is what happened when I edited it in TikTok:

My second attempt was just to film as a time-lapse video and post it to Instagram REELS. 

It was a wee bit better, but I am going to continue practicing my step-by-step quick tutorial versions for you & I hope you will try and make a few as well.

I did chat with a couple of my fellow WOW! Design Team members for help (Daniel Diaz & Katka Dachovska) & they are quite good at their 📹 REELS, if you want to take a peak at their Instagram.

Below are some helpful steps that I have learned from talking to them and from my own trial & error. I thought that they may be helpful to a few of you creatives as well & therefore decided to share them here with you.

I will keep practicing and improving.

  1. 1. Create your short (15-30 second) video reel in your instagram account by clicking the '+' by your account name. Then (on the bottom of your screen) select 'REELS'. From there select the time length of your video 15 or 30 seconds.
  2. 2. If you film at 2x or 3x the speed you can fit more imagery in.
  3. 3. Plan your creation before you begin.
  4. 4. Have some or all pieces/steps already completed to make the filming easier on yourself.
  5. 5. Hold the RECORD button for each short segment of filming & pay close attention to the time remaining.
  6. 6. Be a little silly/playful in your creation segments. You may just get more views that way 😜 .
  7. 7. Search within the REEL creation format for some music/sound that is relative to what you are creating.
  8. 8. Review your video and add in any text that you desire.
  9. 9. Click the NEXT (right arrow) button and then you can add your description & hashtags.  Don’t forget to use #wowembossingpowder #wowembossing as hashtags and to TAG @wowembossing , as we would all 💜 LOVE 💜 to see your work .
Happy REELS Everyone!

Keep smiling & creating,

Handy Stamp Storage Idea

Hello everyone... Happy Tuesday! :D It's Sarah here with today's blog post created for our Monochromatic theme. I don't know about you, but I always find I need to use stamps from a mixture of stamp sets and I thought it would be easier if I didn't have to slide each stamp set in and out of the packets all of the time. I have a bunch of empty CD cases that I had almost thrown out but thankfully I hadn't as they turned out to be the perfect solution! The part that holds the CD easily popped out so I could then position my different stamp sets within them. I found an old wooden CD box but it had no lid and as all clear acrylic stamps are best stored out of the light, I decided I would make a box lid for it... not just a plain lid though... a Wow Embossed box lid! Here are brief instructions on how to make it: STEP ONE Using pearl silver card, I created a square to the size that I needed (145mm) and added 30mm wide rectangles a

VIDEO: Three Ways to Use an Embossing Pen with Jenny Colacicco

Do you have the WOW! Embossing Pen?  Even if you do, do you know what to do with it? Well, if you have been wondering, I can help. I have three different ways to use the embossing pen in today's post and for me it was a game changer.  I've had the pen for a while and just never picked it up except to maybe add a dot of ink where I hadn't fully heat embossed. The techniques I'll show you today (and there's a video!) will make this pen a must have tool in your craft room! My cards also feature the newly released Gemstone Trio embossing glitters (and some other recently released powders now available). I'm going to show you how I created these three cards, all of which feature a different way to use the pen - you can watch the video below or over on the WOW! Embossing You Tube channel (and be sure to hit subscribe while you're over there! Highlighting Dry Embossing For my first card, I used the pen to highlight some areas on a dry embo
