IDEAS Blog Hop March 2023 Stunning Scraps

Hello and welcome to the IDEAS Blog Hop for March 2023 - featuring projects that use scraps in clever ways!  We all have scraps and these projects are really fun and pretty, and use your scraps.

 We have a range of projects from easy and fun for new stampers or more detailed designs for an avid crafter.  Each tutorial includes 1-2 projects for cards and more

This month we have curated tutorials from 14 international Demonstrators with a 75 page full color tutorial bundle for you, featuring colorful cards.  You will get 14 detailed tutorials with a range of projects.  The tutorials have detailed instructions in imperial (aka inches!) and metric.

Here is our sneak peek collage for the March IDEAS Tutorial Bundle.  Each photo represents one designer's tutorial in our bundle.

I used The By the Bay designer paper - scraps left over from my cards and decor that I created for last month's tutorial.

I used the mosiac technique.   This is a fun technique but in my tutorial I share lots of tips to make it easy and successful.  Do you love the gold leafing? I used my "scraps" of gold leafing!  

All the details, how-to, dimensions and tips are in my tutorial. Lots of photos and diagrams to make it easy to follow along.    A super fun project!  

A few simple tips -- all in my tutorial make this card wow!  

I hope you like these projects and the projects from my fellow IDEAS demonstrators.  It's really a great bundle of inspiration for crafters or demonstrators looking for new ideas or workshop ideas.  Keep hopping so you can see all the creativity.   The bundle is about 80 pages of detailed full color instructions with 14+ projects and so many tips.

Would you like a copy of the instructions for these projects to use for your personal use, or even to use in your classes? Contact me at Free to customers, or Free to my team members, or $15 by PayPal.  

Once you have received the tutorials, please remember not to share or distribute the printed or electronic copies of these bundles. We have worked hard to provide these exclusive projects for your use. If you know someone that would like to purchase the bundle, please direct them to me to obtain their copy. Thanks for your support.
