Crafting Tips

As part of the Craftsy blog hop I shared a tip with you, and then asked you to share your favorite tip with me in the comments. I loved reading your responses, and I thought it would be fun to share them with you (in case you didn’t get to read through them). Thanks for sharing these awesome tips!

Paper crafting tip? I think I would say when I learned how to line up my alphabet stickers on a ruler edge before applying them to my page. It helped everything line up so much better! Happy NSD!

One of my favorite tips is to use old, uninspiring chipboard from your stash under items to elevate it on your layouts. Saves $$ on foam adhesive!

I listen to books on my IPOD anything with a mystery. Love to drink coffee and water. Love playing with our 5 rescue Westies. I always enjoy making cards and participating in card drives for a good cause and OWH.

Fun page, lovely card! Papercrafting tip: do what feels right for you. Trends come and go and it’s great to incorporate them if it’s something you like or feels right. However, if the trend isn’t you, don’t chase it.

One tip: I love 6 x 6 paper pads. I get lots of colors on a small scale. I love working with them.

only put adhesive in the middle – then you can slide layers underneath.

Tip: scrapbooking should be fun. I don’t stress being behind in my layouts, the sewing machine jamming up & punching holes in my page or stamped images that are not whole images (well, I don’t stress too much!!)

Before attending a crop, prepare and organizes your pages and/or assembled kits to maximize your time and productivity. This takes time but is worth the effort!

I like to do a grid layout and often use scraps of pattern paper in place of some photos.

Blogger CrizzyJ said…
The first tip I ever got for putting pattern papers together is to put them down and take a step or two back and see if they look good to you or not.

My favourite tip is to scrap lift. I struggle with design of a page, so I skip that part and get yo my favourite part – picking out pretty papers!

Blogger Heather said…

I’d love to take your class, Aly! Your stashbusting classes at BPC were some of my favorites. Thank you for the generous giveaway!

My favorite scrapping tip is to use vellum! I use it to tone down really bold papers, to soften the look of a layout, to journal on… I love the stuff.

Thanks for your inspiration and a chance to your class! My papercrafting tip: once you find a pp that will work, quit looking for something better. Just use it and get started.

Beautiful projects! My best tip is to make up a kit from your stash!

My tip: don’t be afraid to mix patterns. I find so many people will use only one.

Happy NSDay!! Your class sounds like it would be interesting.

My craft tip is: never rush to finish a project. Take your time to enjoy the process. For me it’s more about making something I love and not a marathon of how many projects I have done so far. Thanks for sharing.

Would love to win a spot in your class! I have learned that once I like a design or layout, use it again and again!
