Paper: Three Ways to Use Scrapbook Paper

July 10, 2019

Let’s get the obvious out of the way…we are craft supply hoarders. I don’t know any other way to put it. We like craft supplies and we have way too much of them. Raise your hands if you know what I’m talking about! Raise BOTH hands if you have a particular penchant for hoarding sheets of pretty scrapbook paper. You know? The 12×12 inch paper that comes in every pattern under the sun. The paper that is always on sale for pennies…which means you have to buy at least 30 sheets.

Well, if you’re looking for a reason to stop buying scrapbook paper – then Sister – you’ve come to the wrong place! If you haven’t already laid eyes on the Damask Love Wild Card paper collection, then I’m about to give you one more reason to add a few sheets of pretty paper to your stash. To be fair, I’m also going to give you three reasons to USE it!

Today’s video tutorial is all about USING what you’ve got and in this case, I’m showing you how to use the entire sheet of 12×12 paper – no left overs! You’re going to love how easy these projects are to create!

  1. I love the projects especially the 2nd one. I do wish you’d add the measurements and basic instructions to the blog post so we don’t have to watch the video to remember every time.
