Paper Crafter’s Library was launched in January 2011 with the goal of becoming an all-in-one learning solution for paper crafters. With over 1000 videos in our library to date, and over 50 videos being added each month – we are the largest and most comprehensive online learning resource for paper crafter’s worldwide.

Each Monday we provide you with a behind-the-scenes sneak peek of the projects that were released to our members the previous week.  So the sneak peek you see above is a snapshot of the video tutorials & pdf handouts our members received for the week of February 11th to February 15th

Each week at Paper Crafter’s Library our full monthly members can expect to receive access to a minimum of 8 exclusive projects – totalling around 50 videos each month.  In planning for our projects we ensure that we cover a range of project types so that there is something for everyone whatever their interest or preference – whether it be card making, stamping, scrapbooking, altered art, mixed media, 3D items, templates, techniques etc.  Projects range in difficulty level – so there will always be projects in library for whatever your paper crafting “level” whether you are a beginning paper crafter, or a more advanced paper crafter.

This week Sophia finished off our Shadow Box Easel Card series – this time with a gorgeous hexagon shaped shadow box.  You can see the other Shadow Boxes created so far by clicking HERE and  HERE and HERE and HERE.  Each shadow box has it’s own exclusive template designed by Sophia – and two versions are provided to Paper Crafter’s Library members – a printable template and a studio cut file that you can cut out on your Silhouette Cameo or Portrait machine.  As part of the series, 6 different shapes in all were released  – a square, a rectangle, a circle, a heart, an oval and finally, a hexagon.


Check out this adorable three dimensional carrot that Tracy created – just perfect for Easter.  Wouldn’t your kids love finding these during their Easter Egg hunt?  Or, how about as a nice co-worker surprise?


This week on PCL we also took another dive into mixed media with this art journal page I created called “Comparison is the thief of Joy”. The video tutorial shows the entire process from start to finish.


Other highlights this week:

  • A scrapbook layout featuring American Crafts & Studio Calico
  • Using a monochromatic sponging technique
  • An out-of the box way to use your stamps
  • Using honeypop paper to add dimension to your projects
  • Using the stamping off technique to achieve a tone on tone effect
