Bonus Video: “Diagonal Rays” with Patterned Paper

You're One of a Kind

Hi all! I have a super quick post for you this morning. I filmed this video last weekend and am just now getting around to posting it. It’s been way too busy around here!

Anyhow, I posted a page not too long ago that had some “diagonal rays” made out of patterned paper. Quite a few of you asked how I cut the paper down to create it. So here we go! This is how I did it. :) There are lots of way to do this, but this is the way I made that scrapbook page. Enjoy! :)

BTW, I used BasicGrey’s Lemonade collection for the patterned papers. Aren’t they cute? And K&Co. Wild Raspberry Acetate Diecuts for the butterfly. :)

  1. Thank you very much for this video. As soon as I saw your ‘remember LO’ I wanted to use it on a card. I used graph paper to cut out templates for the rays. But it didn’t work out so well. Your way is so much better and neat. Here’s a link to the card I made…

  2. What a beautiful card! I will have to try that technique.

  3. i’m a plain tshirt and jeans type, but my heart went flutter over those embellishments. sometimes glitter is just divine, no?

    thanks for the demo!

  4. What a beautiful card. I love the colors and the butterfly just went on there nicely. Thank you for the idea and video. You’re awesome. I just love your work. Thank for the demo.

  5. How Clever is this!!!
    Simply Beautiful Card..

    can’t wait to try this :)
    Thanks for sharing these

  6. This is a beautiful card! You are SO talented!

  7. Too cute! I had to try it…. :) Thanks for the inspiration……

  8. Wow! I always love your cards, but I think this is my absolute fave so far. I LOVE “Random Thursdays”!!!

  9. nice idea! Thanks for showing!

  10. This was awesome. I will be trying this on my next card. Thanks for sharing. You rock! Hugs, Maria

  11. Did you know remembering is misspelt on your layout? Another great video.

    • Yes, I did. In fact I noted it in the video annotations, and in the blog entry where I originally shared the page. :)

  12. One of my favorites, your ideas really inspire me…Thanks!!

  13. Beautiful card and great concept. I just wanted to share that I would think if you cut each square with the different diagonials you could make 4 different variations of the card with the different pattern paper rays. Thanks for all the inspiration!

  14. Awesome technique! Thanks for a great video tutorial…looks like a beautiful quilt, indeed!

  15. That is a beautiful card! Love everything about it! You are so talented! I love to come read your blog.

  16. Thank you so much for the tutorial!! Love that pretty quilt look, will have to try this!! Thanks again!! Hope you have a great weekend!!

  17. That card is beautiful, thanks for sharing that technique. I will be using it very soon.
    Your the best.


  18. Really beautiful!!!

  19. Thank you for this tutorial! I realised a card (…) and it’s was fun! Thank’s!

  20. Thanks for the fantastic video. After I saw the video, it reminded me of the Stack n Wack technique in quilting. I knew you could use all the scraps to make four different cards with the same combination of pattern paper. I made a set of four inspired by your video. You can see them here (…)

  21. I LOVE this, I finally got to try out this idea!
    I cut out 4 peices to the same size and then cut them all at the tick marks, they came out perfect and it made me 4 cards at once!!!
    Thanks for your videos they are awesome!!!
