New Video Series! Shhh...Mommy's Hiding

Hey friends!

Today is the first video in what I hope to be a weekly series. There really is no theme. I figure I'll go with some of your requests and then do them as I think of fun things to share. So feel free to comment or email me with any requests (if you've made a request about colored pencils I do have that one written down)

The new series is tenatively titled "Shhh Mommy's Hiding and...(whatever I do that week)". I called it this because I typically tell my husband I'm going to go hide in my studio when I craft, and I usually hide in the bathroom and catch up on blogs/videos. So the title seemed fitting. I actually had several requests for a video on paper piecing so here it is! A few tips I share:

1. Get good scissors...I like these Cutterbee ones
2. When cutting turn and rotate the paper, not your scissors
3. Take your time!
4. Use a black marker (I like this Memento Tuxedo Black one) to outline your image after cutting to sharpen the black lines
5. White gel pens are fun :)

Here is the finished butterfly. Be sure to stop by on Thursday to see the card I made using this beauty :)
