I am starting a brand new video series today called STAMPING BASICS!  So often, many of us who have been stamping for years forget that many of you are new to the craft and need to begin with the basics.  I am hoping that these weekly videos will help you learn how easy it can be to make special cards for special people!  Today’s Video “Stamping Basics-How to Cut Cardstock” shares tips for how to figure out how to cut your card bases AND figuring out the sizes of layers!  I even included an easy way to figure out EIGTHS–something I am asked all the time!

Stamping Basics-How To Cut Cardstock


I hope this video is beneficial not only to those of you who are new, but those who struggle with cutting layers and figuring out sizes!  If you have any questions, please leave me a comment!
