Getting Scrappy Akron Class 2023

Hello friends. 

I make a lot of cards and my scrap bins are always overflowing.  This has become one of my favorite techniques to help cull down the bulk.  There are several different ways to incorporate this technique into your design.  I hope this class helps you see the possibilities.  Do you have a favorite?  I'd love to know!! 

On each blog post you can find and detailed photos and links to video tutorials. 

Key points from class:

1. Remember how you cut your scraps makes a huge difference.  Don't cut triangles.  Refer back to this video if you can't remember how to cut.  

2. leave a small gap between each strip. It will help with the end look

3. Put a line of glue on your background paper using a fine tip glue bottle.  Bearly Art Glue- Amazon or Taylored Expressions--best glue ever! especially for small places!

4. Let glue dry before trimming off extras.
