Tuesday tip...

I bet you thought I forgot about my Tuesday tip! Well, I almost did! Today is just a little tip that I learned from a friend and has helped me! If you own a paper trimmer (or any tool) by Fiskars, did you know that they have a lifetime warranty on them? I have had 3 old paper trimmers replaced for free... if they start to cut crooked, or the numbers rub off, just contact Fiskars and they will send a brand new replacement! Now that is some great customer service! Happy Scrapping!

Tuesday tip and a new file...

It's Tuesday tip time again! I was given a camera by a very gracious pal of mine and I can't wait to try it out and make some more tutorials!

I am going to share a tip today that I haven't shared before... we're talking top secret here! lol The eyes and faces of your paper piecing characters are perhaps the most important features to making a cute piecing. I shared before about how I cut a ton of eyes in different sizes and store them so they are handy when I need them. I hate to have to cut those little eyes each time I cut a character out. But, what I didn't share is what eyes I use... I use the egg shape from the 'Doodlcharms' Cricut cartridge.

You would think that a 3/4 inch egg would be too large for the typical sized piecing, but remember that the cartridges put shapes in reference to each other, so the 3/4 or 1 inch egg is the perfect size for most faces. I also cut them using the shadow feature to get slightly larger eyes.

So, if you hate to cut little eyes each time you cut out characters, try cutting a batch of different sizes to have on hand. Even if you don't have the cartridge I mentioned, you can still find an eye shape you like and cut some out ahead of time.   I hope this helps you some and maybe saves you a little time when cutting and piecing your cuties together!
Here is a new file available at!

Happy Scrapping!

Tuesday tip...

I haven't been able to do any videos lately because I had borrowed my dad's camera and he needed it back... so I will be doing 'Tuesday tips' until I can use the camera again! 

This week's tip is about an alternative way to shade your paper piecings or die cuts. I use the Cat's Eye chalk ink for most of my shading along with actual chalks, but if you don't have just the right color it can be frustrating. You can use a 'Versamark' ink pad or pen to add depth and shading to your pieces. This ink pad and pen give a watermarked effect which basically means that wherever you apply the ink it will become a darker shade of the paper color. You can find these 'Versamark' ink pads and pens at your local craft store such as Michael's.

Happy scrapping!
