Hi friends, thank you so much for participating in the Stress Free Cardmaking Summit.

I have compiled what I feel are my fav paper crafting tips and I really believe these will take your paper crafts to the next level!  Enjoy!

Tip 1 ~~ Trimmer ~~  be consistent with your trimming... trim at the line

Tip 2  ~~ Trimmer ~~ sink your blade... this will give you the best results for those tricky cuts

Tip 3  ~~ Trimmer ~~ push/pull the blade to the stop bar... use the trimmers stop bar to get a straight cut

Tip 4 ~~ Scoreboard ~~ fold onto the score you don't have the " bead"

bonus tip: if you score with a thicker scoring tool and create a thicker score line, fold your cardstock on the scoreboard to get even folds...and if you fold in the air, run your bone folder along that scoreline to train the cardstock to fold where you want it to...

Tip 5 ~~ Stamping ~~ protect the back! ... never lay the flat side of your stamp down on your work surface...protect the stick.

bonus tip ~~ clean your stamps while on the block or positioner.

I hope these 5 FAV tips will help you with creating successful projects.
