Thanks Jan for the great tutorial!

Pat Jandacek

Jan, that was a great tutorial! I'm not into scrapbooking, nor digital anything (yet) but I found it interesting, educational and intriguing. Who knows when I may get over the fear of trying digital cardmaking. Tutorials like this will lead the way. TFS


Thanks so much for taking the time to do this tutorial. It has beeen very helpful!


Thanks for the awesome tutorial Jan. I will definitely be using this technique as it looks MUCH better than anything I've come up with so far!

Sue duffy

Awesome, Jan! I've learned lots from your video. TFS

Jan, fabulous tutorial. I'm just starting to work with MDS even though I've had it since October. I know ~ shame on me! Anyway, wouldn't it be easier to copy the first (soft suede) torn edge for the 2nd side and then do the same for the second (white) torn edge so you don't have to worry about matching the color and resizing twice? You'd just have to rotate them the other direction. Appreciate the time you spent on creating this work of art!

Jan, you rock! Thanks for taking the time to do this!

Hi Jan, I enjoyed your tutorial very much. I have to admit that I don't have MDS yet. I have almost everything Stampin Up has made, but am reluctant to use MDS. Maby one day. I appreciate you taking the time to show us how to do the "Torn Edge" technique. I hope you have a wonderful day. Take care, Jenny :)
Ps. I come to your blog everyday to see your beautiful work. You have an amazing talent. Thank you again!!


You're awesome! I love your blog because you always make me laugh and I always learn something! Keep up the good work!


Jan, thanks so much for this amazing tutorial. You make it look so easy, even when you say it took all day to make the tutorial behave, LOL. You keep me coming back for more each time.

Great tutorial, Jan. thanks so much. I will have to try this next time I am playing with MDS. I am just starting to learn it, so tutorials like this really help.


What a great tutorial! The info is great, your voice is soothing and now I think I can make the same effect at home! Wow, thanks Jan!


Absolutely wonderful demo! If you need ideas of other demos on MDS, I would love to learn how to use the scallop trim punch and corner together to make a punched layer.
Thanks Jan, You ROCK!


I use camstudio as well for tutorials, it took a bit of courage to record myself with a headset and I thought that my working class Brit accent would be a bit wimpy but hey, I thought just be yourself and I surprised myself and really enjoyed it. Being able to help is great amd getting nice comments from folks is brilliant.



Thanks for the awesome video!!! You ARE fabulous!
