General

Some tips + a new card!

So I was talking with some paper crafting friends yesterday and we have some general tips to share with you:

– When you have scraps of card stock large enough to create a card out of, fold it in half and set it aside (she used a drawer) so you’ll always have folded cards on hand. Smart!

– Create your own imaging sheets for the Stamp-a-ma-jig by cutting down some vellum card stock. Then you can keep those sheets inside your stamp set boxes and always have them ready. Great for sentiment sets and alphabets.

– Some of you have asked about how I tie ribbon into knots. I tried to use my old digital camera that has movie capabilities to capture some knot tying, but alas, I don’t have enough hands! Plus the lighting was really bad. Anyway, here’s the tip I learned a while ago: Left over right, pull tight, right over left, and then pull tight but more with the left side (this turns the knot under so you get a good looking knot). It’s hard to explain without visuals, but if any of you understood that, let me know! :)

Anyway, here’s a card for your Saturday afternoon.
