Did you ever know there were different ways to tear paper, depending on which hand you tear with (or side of the paper) gave you a different look? Now you can learn!! We were given all these beautiful Core'dinations papers that are just begging to be torn due tho the different cores they have, plus the torn papers just go with the style of the August Kit from Birds of a Feather.
Above you can see the the difference in the look of the paper after tearing, I do not use any special tools or anything, just the side I tore the paper on. On the left you see torn edges but you do not see the core. On the right side you see the core. Both look great, it really all depends on what kind of look you want.
Method 1 - Core visible after tearing
The portion I tear is the part I throw away, so what I left is the part of the paper I want to use. So I am throwing the paper on the right and keeping the one on the left. Another way of thinking about it is to make sure the side of the paper I want to use is facing me and tear along the right side only.
I had just way way way toooo much fun with the "Bling" in this kit just adding it to just about everything!!!
I just love how she puts these kits together!!!

Good Sunday Morning, Chickies!
I hope that everyone has had a wonderful weekend, so far! It's been hot and humid here in southern Ohio; so I've spent a lot of time in the a/c scrapping with the beautiful August kit.
My first layout is on of Little Mia. She LOVES to lay on my lap and cuddle with me; such a simple pleasure that makes me happy.
For the layout I grabbed the Marion Smith "Archive" paper for my background. I then fussy cut some of the flowers from the Kaiser Craft "Collage" paper. Next I added a doily from my stash, layered one of the Kaiser Craft die cut tags (available as an add-on) for my title and finally sprinkled on some sequins.
And a couple of close ups:…Continue
My first project is a layout of my 2 week old niece after her bath - as soon as I saw these photos I knew they would be perfect with the August kit!
Next up I have a card to share - these chalk studio tags are so perfect for cards!
Thanks for stopping by the blog…Continue
