Sizzix Video Tutorial | Using Scraps For Cards by Vivian Keh

Hello, Sizzix fans!  Vivian Keh here today with a Sizzix Video Tutorial which I hope will help you look at your scraps as raw material for your next favorite project!  While a lot of my solid paper pieces languish in that pile in the corner, I tend to keep nearly all my happy left over bits and strips from misted and mixed media projects right on my craft table, ready to be used when the mood strikes. Today's project was crafted entirely from scraps.


In my video, I introduce a great die from our new Marisa Pawelko line - theChained Sizzix Originals die, which has wonderful geometric patterns that really celebrate shape and repetition.  These Originals dies pair well with the new Sizzix SophistiCutmachine which is super light-weight and perfect for toting to friend's house or to your local crop.


In the video, I share some tips on how to quickly and efficiently adhere these pretties, as well as an easy tip to help with composition.


A lot of satisfaction comes with knowing you crafted something pretty and unique out of scraps that had been headed for the trash.

I hope you enjoy my video and that you come away inspired to look at that pile of scraps with fresh eyes, ready to create!

    Lovely card Vivian. You sure know how to put scraps into good use. My scrap box is filled with just plain old paper, and not the gold mine yours has in it. I'll see what I can make from it though.

    Really, really, really like this card. So much going on and the color combo is beautiful. Just might have to get that die.

    Beautiful card, Vivian. Very inspiring. I have been going through bags and boxes in my art room and challenging myself to use my stash, including my scraps. I have multiple altered books and art journals on the art table to use my stash in. Thank you for sharing this great card idea.
