  1. is there a tutorial on how to easily align nine square inchies?

    • Have you tried using your score board to score every 1-1/8 inches? You can then line the inchies up with either the scored valleys or ridges, depending on which effect you like. It might take some playing around to figure out how to score on a diagonal and get them nicely lined up, though.

  2. Thank you for the fabulous tutorials. I have posted this site on my blog. Happy Holidays.

    I would love more followers. Hugs, Gloria
