Shaped Card Tutorial

My tutorial for this week at the Scrapbook Express blog is how to make a shaped card.

I chose to use the Quickutz Cookie Cutter Mini Album: Sugarplum Page Insert but you could use this same technique with any shape cut with the Cricut Expression, Sizzix Big Shot, Slice, or Silhouette.

To start, cut two of the same shape.

Score about 1/2" from the top on one of the shapes (this will be the back). Fold towards you.

Place adhesive only on the small scored strip on the top of the back piece. Line up both shapes, and press together along the top where you have placed the adhesive strip.

Decorate the front of the card as desired.

Last month I participated in the ABC Summer Crop at My Sketch World. Every other day were card challenges so I managed to make quite a few cards. It's been a while since I was on a card making binge (not like I don't have enough already premade but they are fun).

New Layouts

While I have not been posting on my blog, I have been creating lots of layouts. For some reason, I've started working with double page layouts recently....something I haven't done much of in a long time.
