Christmas framelits

Posted September 23, 2014 By scrappy

I’ve added some thoughts on “smart” framelit, die, and punch purchases to the tips and tricks page only because I believe I’ve got a winner in my “Fancy Joy and Wreath” Set from HOTP (Stampin’ Up! has also a similar collection as does Ranger).  Check out the projects in the Christmas framelit article just posted on the Paper Crafts page.

Aligning your stamped images

Posted September 5, 2014 By scrappy

Watching a fb group and saw someone asking about acrylic blocks with grid lines.  I’ve shopped for those before and while they are not incredibly more expensive – unnecessary to say the least.  Happens to coincide with my grid paper pick for September – but a clear block and a clear stamp to prep on 1/4″ grid paper: you’re good to go.  The latest on the “tips and tricks” page.

Something a bit different and a technique that lets you mix and match all of your framelits (I’m still playing with punches as well).  We all luv the layered look….  how ’bout a look that is as striking in a single layer?!  This has to appeal to scrapbookers, but the cards you make can sometimes ‘pile up’ as well.  I’m just getting started – check out the latest article on my scrapbooking page.

This month is about having great “essentials” to gear up for the upcoming holidays that will be here before you know it.  The right tools can make a difference in your finished projects, but better than that – make the process easy.
