2018 Goals: Papercrafting
I really need to work on my paper crafting in 2018. Of all of my hobbies, this one is richest in possibilities and materials to work with. Whether working on a scrapbook or making cards for various occasions, you can do so much here.
Rubber Stamping I love my vast stamp collection, and use them when I can. The best I've managed so far is to color in some of the stamped images with color pencil. I could be using markers, watercolor paints or water color pencils. I have most rubber stamping techniques to learn, and the books, natch, to learn them from.
If I use my so so tracing skills, I could also be using my nice watercolors and watercolor pencils to produce nice cards.
Who has a lovelier collection of papers than I do? I've individual sheets and books of themed papers.
I worked a little with glitter this holiday season, but I like it very much. More glitter in 2018.
Sequins! I watched this video on easily affixing sequins to cards, and I'm going to get some toothpicks in my craft room so I can try her technique. Sequins aren't too bad in the mail. I'm assuming the cards I sent with sequins kept them all on anyway.
I have a glorious Crop-a-dile I need to use.
Somewhere, in my re-organizational efforts, I buried my sweet little kits for punching sewing like patterns in paper. Find them! Then I'll be able to embroider on cards and in scrapbook pages.
I like the multi-media possibilities of papercrafts, and would like to add some fabric bits to cards and pages. Oh no, I'd have to get a bit more fabric.
Pocket Pages! I have many documents of varying sizes I'd like to include in scrapbooks. Here are some pocket templates http://scrapbooking.craftgossip.com/10-ways-to-make-use-paper-pockets-templates-tutorials/2015/07/20/
I'm looking for a pattern for making an entire pocket page for a 12x12 page, and I know I've found one in the past but, on the list, find a pattern. This is close http://www.dotcomwomen.com/crafts/how-to-make-pocket-pages-for-scrapbook/4380/
