Have you had a chance to check out Paper Wishes 101 sites? Well if you haven’t had a chance…you are definitely missing out on LOTS of FREE techniques, tips and best of all inspiration!
Three different 101 sites to choose from – something for everyone:
Each month the designers come up with a different technique, trick or tip. They are usually simple and easy to follow along. This month in each section we are featured HOTP’s beautiful paper pack – Fresh Cut Blossoms.

Tip: To make the greetings appear in your flower shapes, first stamp the greeting on scrap paper creating a mask. Trim around the greeting and place on cardstock. Then, stamp the large flower image over the mask. Remove the mask and stamp the greeting in the blank space. The Perfect Printing Pouch helps your embossed images stay crisp, and prevents stray embossing powder from sticking to other parts of your card.
I’ve found soo much information on each of these sites. From videos, simple tricks, Q&A, notes on the designers…the list just goes on and on. These sites are a great resource that everyone should dive into and bookmark them, as we update them each month.
