I'm a beginner at scrapbooking and I find that all of the information will truly help me with my scrapbooking projects. I love how the information is presented and easy to follow. Thanks so much

thanks for the card measurements etc. that is often overlooked and it is an integral part of cardmaking

thank you, learned a lot of new things, I like that you demonstrated the card measurements and that it fits in the standard A2. Also didn't know that glossy accents could be used as glue. You're so right about the smaller trimmers losing alignment. I'm thinking of buying the Basic Grey Magnet cutting mat with metal ruler.. (Sorry can't think of the official name). Thanks again

Extremely Helpful! Thank You! Well presented!

This was a nice information video. I've been wanting to get started in card-making and this is a great help! Thank you.

I loved the video. I've been making cards for years and did not know the standard dimension size is 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 I would just fold my 8 1/2 x 11 in half! Now, I can get to 2 cards out of that! Thanks I will be ordering the Scor-tape and Zip Dry for transparencies and the Vellum Adhesive V2. Great products ideas.

I liked the pros and cons of various adhesives.

very helpful for a beginner
