Make Your Own Pattern Paper

handmade pattern paper

Quick and easy background made with stamps

You will not believe how quickly and easily you can create your own pattern paper with clear stamps!  I made this cheerful cherry paper with just a few supplies in no time at all. Simply select a small stamp and place it on a clear My Acrylix block. Line your cardstock up on our Versamat self healing mat using the preprinted grid lines.  Then line your block up with the grid line so that you can easily stamp in measured intervals.  I love this method because there is no need to use your ruler and pencil.

Make it with stamps!

This technique works especially well to create borders on your scrapbook pages or backgrounds for cards.  I love to use it behind one of our Cricut Collection overlays to make a impressive card design; it really pumps the WOW factor up a notch.  Give it a try and let me know which stamp set you used to create your pattern paper.
