We Create Blog Hop - Cut it Out!

Welcome to the MARCH 2021 "Cut it Out" Blog Hop!!! We generally hop on the first day of every month, and this month the focus of our projects will be cutting. It can be cutting with dies, using punches, fussy cutting (by hand), or just a special way of cutting.

I thought some health issues might have been getting better for me, but they took a dive and have been kind of low for the past month. So, my project is going to be an easy "throwback" project of mine from a several years back, updated with current product. It's a stationery holder that will hold 4 cards and envelopes, that's made from cutting a 12"x12" sheet of Designer Series Paper, down to 8"x12", then scoring and folding it.

Though you can use the scoring blade on the Paper Trimmer for this project, I personally prefer to use the Bone Folder to make the score lines. To do this you simply open the cutting guide of the Paper Trimmer, so it's out of the way, then you use the trimmer for your measurements but you slide the pointy end of the Bone Folder down the cutting groove. I've found that the Bone Folder is much gentler on our Designer Series Paper, so you are less likely to press too hard and accidentally tear the paper.

Just to make things easier on myself, I used the Snail Mail Designer Series Paper that I used previously to create the 4 valentine cards in THIS POST. These cards are pictured below, and they have a decent amount of layering with some die cuts, some images cut by hand, and also some embellishments, and you can see they still fit nicely into the stationery holder. My Stampin' Supplies for this post, and the purchase links, will be limited to just the stationery folder itself, so if you want to check out the supplies needed for those cards, be sure to check that post link from last month.
