Tips on Cutting for Cardmaking


How about some tips on cutting for cardmaking?  A member of my mailing list, who is a beginning cardmaker, mentioned that cutting and measuring were two of her biggest challenges.  It seems like many of us have been able to relate to those challenges especially when just beginning to dabble in this fun craft!

The reply to her email included the following videos from my YouTube Channel which she found most helpful. With that, it seemed these videos were "post-worthy" again.
