Cut It to Create It - Template #1

I am so excited to be offering this new series of tutorials. This idea came to me because I really struggle using all the beautiful Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up. Mostly because it is so gorgeous and fun and I can never decide which side to use. Plus when I do use it I usually only cut small strips to I can "save" it for the perfect project. But that project usually never comes around and as such I have so much paper!!

So...New Idea to the rescue! Cut It to...Create It. In these tutorials I will be sharing with you pictures and cutting templates to create different cards from one sheet of Designer Series Paper along with coordinating cardstock, stamps, ink, markers, accessories, and adhesive

For the first template I wanted to show you the versatility of this concept and used it with 3 different Designer Series Paper Packs, Stamp Sets, and color combinations. I really feel that this template could really work with any Designer Series Paper Pack and Stamp Set. I would love to see what you create so lets share it online by using the #cutittocreateit .

I am offering the cutting templates and pictures of each card for free as this blog post. However, if you are interested in knowing how I put together each individual card and all the supplies I used you can purchase those video tutorials for $5.00 USD. Please send me your contact information by filling out this form and I will email you the details. (
