New Paper Lines for Cutters

Hey cuttin' friends. I am so excited that some of the commercial crafting companies are starting to develop products that are geared towards digital cutting machines. I just watched a video from CHA Winter 2012 where  Megan Elizabeth has designed a paper that is customized for electronic die cutting machines. It is called Paper Layers. The idea is that there are several blocks of coordinating colors on one 12 by 12 scrapbook paper. This would make it easier to cut out different layers and embellishments. Instead of trying to find 9 different colors of paper and then trimming and positioning them on your mat, you could just use one sheet of paper where they have done the work for you.


For example, if I were to cut this schoolhouse image I cut place the cuts in the colored squares.

Bazzill paper has also considered digital cutters. They are coming out with 12 by 24 inch paper. That will be great for long projects and will be easier to use when we need to make several cuts with the same colored card stock. They are also coming out with 110 pound card stock for us card makers which will also be good for our 3D paper crafts.

  1. That IS a cool idea. My only thought would be that there would be a lot of extra paper left over. But then I guess your scraps will be color coordinated so you won't have to hunt for the next color in your project :)

    thanks for sharing this link Jani!
