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 January 21st – 25th.

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 different projects 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 continues on with our Shadow Box Easel Card series – this time with an adorable shadow box designed to look like a porthole on a ship.  You can see the other Shadow Boxes created so far by clicking 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.  So far three different shapes have been released to members – a square, a rectangle and  a circle.  Sophia will be adding to this series with a heart, oval and hexagon shaped Shadow Boxes which will be released one a week.



We also have another exclusive template designed by yours truly (Andrea) – this Heart shaped treat pouch you can see below:


Of course, in addition to these projects we have a bunch more pictured in the sneak peek above.

Some of the techniques/products included in this weeks projects include:

  • triple heat embossing of chipboard shapes
  • using your left-over stickers to create the entire focal point of your card
  • coloring with copic markers
  • creating a shaped card
  • creating a shaped window on your card filled with layered ribbon
  • using coordinating stamps and dies

To see a sample of our teaching style you can check out our Free Project of the Week – which is released every Friday.  You can see this week’s project HERE.
