This month we are doing a little hand cutting! So get your scissors ready!
You can see the March class lesson, here!
March Class Description:
For the sake of class this month lets pretend your paper trimmer is broken....your punches, diecutting machines, templates....all broken. All you have to cut paper with is your good ol' trusty scissors. Sure, all those things I listed sometimes make scrapbooking a bit easier, but how many times have you spent at least 10 minutes looking for one of them? I'm not going to tell you how much time I spend looking for things. This month, lets let loose a little and cut by hand. Now, you might be thinking that you have to be able to draw complex shapes and paper piecing patterns, not true. If you can, good for you, go for it! But I'm just talking about basic and simple shapes. I think you'll be really surprised at how this will make your page 'yours'. A little more handmade, a little more character, a little more lovely.
Each month we will have a challenge associated with the class. This month your challenge is to create a layout/card/project on which you've used your scissors to hand cut embellishments out of patterned paper. They can be as simple or as complex as you like, just try something new!
To Participate in the Challenge:
-Create a project on which you've used your scissors to hand cut the majority of the embellishments.
-Layout can Digital, Traditional or a Hybrid.
-Submit your layout by uploading to the gallery by April 9, 2010 11:59 CST. Don't forget to click the box next to this class (Patterned Paper Every Which Way: March 2010).
I will pick a winner randomly from all the submissions to win a Gift Certificate to Two Peas and post the winner on the Education Board on April 10th. For every submission to this class you will earn a badge!
Let's have some more fun!!! Thanks so much for your participation!

Soo...for the first year I scrapped, I didn't have a paper trimmer. I usually TRIED to cut my papers and photos straight but I think if you go all the way back to the first LO I ever posted, you'll see that close doesn't count in scrapbooking. There were a lot of those I didn't post, LOL.
Is that what you're looking for? Or, as the previous poster to me suggests, things like hand-cut stars?

Anything hand cut will work! Hand cut embellishments are what the emphasis is though. I can't wait to see!!

Here is a project I made where I cut out the houses from Heide Grace paper.

I just uploaded my project. I was able to use some of my scraps for this lo. Only the background paper started as a full sheet. As I also don't have a die cut machine I always cut. I don't remember how to link my lo here. It's called "Cousins".
|Posted: 4/2/2010 10:49:52 AM|I just used my scissors for this card and I think it made me take things in new directions. I decided to enhance my scissor cut edge with dashed lines and some stickles, I like to think that I embraced the scissored look instead of trying to hide it. I am very pleased with my Dark Girl Card.

I really like all the ideas I've seen on these layouts! I;m definitely looking at my patterned paper in a different way!

It's great to see everyone's different takes on this challenge.
|Posted: 4/7/2010 4:18:59 AM|This was another great class. It was so refreshing to do everything by hand. The circles were hand drawn & cut out with scissors. The photo mat was torn to shape and even the flowers were hand cut and twirled. The circle edges were distressed by hand (fingernails actually) and then inked. The faux stitching was done by pricking holes and then drawing from hole to hole with a pen - no sewing machine.
