Studio Calico Video

Hey there.

I have a video for you today – one I did for Studio Calico. It shows three ways to use the tissue trim from SC called Scraps.

Here is what the Scraps tissue trims look like. (Click photos to see more.)

This first card shows layering the soft tissue trim to cover most of a card. Love how soft/light it is so you don’t end up with a heavy, bulky card..

Next, I cut and rolled the trim to create a soft flower…

And for the third card, I did a bit of braiding. Braiding is tough with ribbon because it ends up so bulky. With these Scraps tissue trim, it is light enough to braid…

Fun fun fun stuff.  See below for supply links.


I just wanted to share something fun. My friend Kelly Purkey is part of a new book series… along with Teresa Collins, Heidi Swapp, Donna Downey, Elizabeth Kartchner and Kristine McKay. I am so proud of her! You can find out more about it HERE. (Congrats Kelly! Love you.)

    Jennifer, you truly are a wizard when it comes to designing and getting the most out of the materials you use. Love all the cards you did for Studio Calico. Now I MUST find some of the Scraps tissue trim.

  24. Donna K

    I absolutely love the braid idea with tissue. I can’t wait to try it and thank you for embellishment ideas that can be mailed. It’s easy to add lots of stuff to a card but if you can’t mail it it’s kind of useless. Your creativity is so awesome.

  25. AWESOME IDEAS!!

    I’ve seen this online and didn’t get how it really worked any different then a border….and I learned how to make leaves – so easy!

  32. Loved your video with the Studio Calico scraps, Jennifer! The card with the braid and the heart is my fave!

  33. Ruth G

    I’d already seen some of these cards, but they still enchant and inspire me! I can’t wait to see what you share next!

  34. Wow great cards – I ADORE the flower ( I often use tissue paper for flowers love more petal like feel and the way you can scrunch it up !) and the braiding is just genius – must give that a try x
