Introducing Technique Tuesday – a New Column on the Scrapbooking Blog

Scrapbooking has grown so much in the past five years, let alone the past ten years. As new products are introduced daily, and scrapbooker’s find new ways to use products and do different techniques, there is no end is sight to the endless possibilities available to the creative person.

With the vast amount of scrapbooking information available in all sorts of locations, it can get overwhelming and difficult to learn. The problem is, it is scattered all over and it would be much easier to find it if it was all in one place.

The Scrapbooking Blog here at is very proud to announce a new regular weekly column dubbed “Technique Tuesday”. Every Tuesday there will be a new technique introduced to you, and there will be color examples of the days technique shown with directions. The projects shown will vary, as it might be a layout, a card or just a sample scrap piece of paper to show the technique in action, but the visual aid will hopefully help you to better understand what is being taught.

There are dozens of different techniques that will be introduced from the proper way to sand, to distress, to blend, to do collage, to crayon resisting, to properly using a tool to obtain a technique. All of the things will be covered and full step by step directions will be available with color photographs. From simple to advanced, we will try and cover whatever is popular at the moment.

If there is a particular technique that you are struggling with, or that you would like to learn or see in action, please email me or leave a comment so that I can help you out. No matter your level in scrapbooking, you will be able to utilize these techniques on your own layouts.

These techniques will be found in the Scrapbooking Techniques section beginning this Tuesday.
