I am hoping I will have a long series of Tips and Tricks for all of you, as I craft and notice things I do to make things easier I will take extra pictures and put them into an extra post called tips and tricks.
This trick #1 is something I have been noticing that I am doing more often, I score my paper first, a full 8 1/2 by 11 sheet then cut it so I get two cut/scored card bases at ounce because I am finding out that I am making two cards at ounce.
I have two paper trimmers that I use and they are both by Fiskars, I purchased from Micheal's and used a 40% coupon, I also buy my blades from Micheal's when they have a sale of either 40% or 50% off. I try to have at least two sets of replacement blades at all times.
Now I have created a top fold card but I have also seen card makers turn this so it opens left to right or even right to left. I don't make many top folding cards because there just not my thing but I do think a card opening right to left would be cool.
