Well another month has gone by and the Volume-038 Back Issue Videos have now been added to the Polymer Clay Library. If you missed your chance to see these tutorials as they were released each Friday during the month of July, now is your chance to add them to your collection as a convenient bundled package.

Today’s photo shows thumbnail images for the 4 videos included in this Vol-038 Package:

Video-038-1 Copper Bookmarks: Simple, unique and oh so functional, these cool bookmarks make a popular item for all ages, genders and personalities. Add one of your hand crafted focal beads, slip them into a book, and you have the perfect Teacher’s Gift, Grad Gift, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Birthday, or Girlfriend gift. It doesn’t matter if the recipient is older or younger, casual or formal. And unlike other jewelry pieces, it doesn’t have to match someone’s outfit… they’re fast and easy to make too. A great way to use up those orphan beads!

Video-038-2 Cupcake Beads: Totally cute and delicious looking, these tiny little polymer clay cupcake and muffin beads are sure to bring a little sweetness into your day. Plus they are so fun to make, you’ll be mixing up batches for every girl in your life!

Video-038-3 Backgroundless Tulip Cane: Originally inspired by the colors and design of a carved wooden tulip, this unique backgroundless tulip cane is perfect for layering on beads and pendants, as well as slicing into adorable little tulip shaped beads. You can even use a section of this cane to create the sculpted tulip beads in the next tutorial. What could be more fun than that!

Video-038-4 Parrot Tulip Beads: Some flowers are so exquisite that they just need to be recreated into beautiful beads. Such is the case with the Parrot Tulip. With it’s striated colors and it’s ruffled petals, Sculpted Parrot Tulip Beads are the perfect focal beads to add to your nature inspired jewelry pieces. Your friends will be impressed when they see them, and only you will know how simple they were to make!

    Another great month!!! Then I saw it had 5 fridays….bummer :(. Well maybe I can get caught up a little. Especially since it’s cooled down a bit.

  2. Cindy Lietz, 25 July, 2011

    @pollyanna: Thanks polyanna! Just between you and me, we have a small treat for you all this 5th Friday. It is something that many have been requesting for a while now. Plus if you pay attention, I will be revealing a clue about what is to be covered in the upcoming Vol-039-1 video (also something that many, many of you have been asking about). So stay tuned…

    oh gosh…….mystery abounds!!! Wow!!!

    Dear Cindy,

    I’m really enjoying your videos! You’re a great teacher! I discovered a lot of nice tips and tricks I didn’t know before and I’ve only seen a few of the videos I bought so far!

    Ciao and have a nice creative day!

  5. Mavis T, 25 July, 2011

    I too am enjoying using the videos, meeting new people and I think your work and site concept is uniquely Cindy!

    Many Thanks,

    Hi Cindy,

    I love your tutorials- they’ve expanded my horizons about what I can do with polymer clay. I also really admire that you are a working artist! As a current college student thinking about career options, I think that it’s amazing that you can make a living through artistic endeavors.


  7. Andrea K, 26 July, 2011

    Cindy – I am a craft worker who is trying to turn a hobby into a small business. I do enjoy your tutoring videos and I can tell you that after I wasn’t successful finding polymer clay work shops in my area, your videos are being my best school! Thanks. Andrea

  8. Elizabeth S., 27 July, 2011

    Oh my,
    I am SO BEHIND!!! DIL was in the hospital for several days so this special wonderful person became the rightful priority. All is well now so maybe I can start to catch up. Wonderful tutes this month as always.

  9. Ken H, 27 July, 2011

    What a great month for the tutorials, and ugh, I just realised this week is 5th friday

  10. Cindy Lietz, 27 July, 2011

    Gosh everyone, your words are so sweet! Makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside to hear you are enjoying your journey with polymer clay! It is also so fun knowing that you all are from all over the world. Makes the world a little bit smaller and a whole lot cozier, being able to get together and share like this!

    @Elizabeth S.: Sorry to hear your DIL was ill. Glad to know that she will be OK. It will be nice to have you back around again!

    @Ken H: I guess you didn’t read the little comment I made to polyanna…

  11. Ken H, 27 July, 2011

    Yep, that’s what reminded me, still a long gap to the next colors, right now that’s the only claying I get to do.

  12. cherie, 27 July, 2011

    Just realised too there’s a 5th Friday this month! Even though I haven’t been claying, I so enjoy watching the videos. Can’t wait to see what you have for us cindy!

  13. Phaedrakat, 27 July, 2011

    What a wonderful month of tutorials you gave us, Cindy! Thank you! I, also forgot there was a “5th Friday” coming up…but I’m not sad now. Sounds like you’ve got something fun up your sleeve for us — how exciting! Besides, how could I complain when the membership fee is already super tiny? Especially for the 12 awesome videos we get each 90 days! We can’t expect you to give away additional tutes each time the calendar tosses in an extra Friday!… ;D (OK, sure…I’ll miss you & the video on Fri., but days go by pretty quickly as I’m get older…and older…) ~Kat ;D
