I was born on Super Bowl Sunday. I have been digiscraping since 2000. I live in beautiful sunny California. I am married to my soul mate and we have two gorgeous children. My favorite saying is, “If you think my hands are full, you should see my heart!”

Tuesday's Tip: Edges




Decorative edged scissors are used for cutting decorative edges on paper, cardstock, photos, photo mattes, and just about anything else. You will find many designs to choose from. At first you may want to try those of a fellow scrapbooker. Then you can acquire a few of the designs that you like best.

Die cuts are pretty punched-out designs and usually come in a heavier paper or cardstock weight so they do not bend easily. A number of shapes, designs, and words are available. 


You can also purchase dies and a die cutting machine so that you can customize your die cuts to perfectly match your layout!


Novelty edged rulers come in handy when you want precise trimming on a border or elsewhere. There are rulers available with a different design on each edge of the ruler, which is two-for-the-price-of-one. Patterns come in different styles, such as scallops, zigzag, and much more. Straight rulers are essential for marking strips of paper or card stock and photographs that need to be cut straight. They are also used to draw straight lines when creating borders on your scrapbook pages. Decorative rules come in a variety of styles and allow wonderful options for enhancing borders.
Transparent rules are also called quilters' rulers. Because they are transparent, they allow you to line up your layout perfectly. They are particularly handy for lining up lettering.

Page protectors are clear sleeves into which a finished page can be slipped for protection with holes punched on the side so they can be placed into an album. Some open from the top with others open on the side. Read the package to verify that they are acid for you. Or scrapbook pages that will be handled often, these sleeves offer an invaluable protection.

Use a circular blade paper cutter for a perfectly straight cut. The paper cutter will probably be of more use than any other tool for scrapbooking. This paper cutter has a round blade, which is pulled from the top to the bottom of a photo or paper for a precise cute. the cutting blade and straightedge are attached to a ruled surface, making it very easy for measuring. Ribble or other decorative-edged blades are available for some of these paper cutters. They can save a lot of time.

Corner clipping scissors or punches are used for making decorative designs on photo or paper corners, you can get ones that will round your corners or ones that will make very detailed punches.
Punches are used to punch out small designs and can be found in a number of designs and sizes. One of the best features about punches is that you can use the punched out shape as well as the void or negative area by trimming around it. And the pieces that fall out make great confetti!


Templates are manufactured from a still plastic. They are made in various sizes with various shapes. The shapes are machine cut to give a firm edge to trace around.
