free weights? Toning? Women.
 
I have been doing cardio. I have a set of free weights. (they are in a carrying case, so not very big). I need to know how to use them properly to tone all parts of my body. Any youtube recommendations or DVD's?

Can't really help you with a recommendation. I lifted weights years ago, so I remember proper form usually. I just googled "weights for triceps", weights for biceps", etc. to remind me which exercises did what and a bunch of youtube videos come up in the search results.

How many pounds are your weights? Mine are 8lbs. There used to be loads of videos on Netflix that they took down :( but I usually do something like this:
10-Minute Arm Workout Video
Another good thing to do for a more whole body workout, is squats and lunges while lifting the weights laterally.

Thank you for posting this, I have been doing upper body workouts while sitting at the computer or watching television so this workout video will work for me.

All I can offer is don't be afraid of lifting heavier weight :)

Thank you for posting this. I will try doing it. All I have are two 10 lb. kettlebells which would be hard to use the way they do so I need to get some weights. Do you do this everyday or every other day?

Every other day! You might be able to do it every day but I would give your muscles a day to rest and build. I only work out with weights about 20-30 minutes every other day but eventually I'll build up, and I already see a difference in my arms, strength, and especially thighs (from the squats and lunges)
