Those of you familiar with my work, either through the Paper Crafts Magazine, but especially through Q's Creative Classes, I love to share my Cut & Print Technique. It has literally changed the way I create with paper.
I've been getting more requests lately, from newer students who would like to know how to do this, so I'm reposting this video I did with Northridge Publications about 1 1/2 years ago. In it I explain the whole process, so enjoy!
Oh my goodness, Susan Neal and Kristine McKay (super crafty Studio 5 contributor) in the same room! We had SO much fun doing this. Too much fun! We had to do several takes because we just went on and on and on. Hope you enjoy the tips, ideas and free downloads!
I knew when I found this quote by Jane Austin, that it would make the perfect birthday card. There's nothing more celebratory than banners, so it was a great fit. Download the PDF (or use the JPEGS) to print out 2 cards per 8 1/2" x 11" sheet of white cardstock. (scroll down the page a bit to find it, as it is older). The rest is scoring, folding and getting creative with punched out circles. Mix & Match, change up the colors and make a bunch!
Here's another quick card that requires a scallop edged circle paper. Cut off the scallops and follow the step-by-steps below.
