Matting 101 Video Series on Youtube!

Have you ever wondered why I mat a certain way or how I mat in general?

I’ve had lots of questions about this so I am providing the basics of my matting style on
2 of my recent albums: The Picture Perfect Landscape & Portrait Mini Album Set.

In my Matting 101 series on Youtube, you will learn how and why I mat the way
I do and get ideas for defining your own matting sytle.

    Oh, and now I want the Zyron also. I knew nothing about them before so I had no idea I really need one!!! LOL

    OMGosh Ms. Kathy- you really are the Queen!! These are awesome. I made it through three of them w/ no issues, but the weather & the internet did not play well with the bad weather for the fourth. How big is your area you mat on??? I have such a big mess on mine, and I have a good size area to work on. So organizing as I go will help I hope. Do you hear me talking to you during the videos??? Ha haaaa Cus I am, just like in class. Thank you so much for this series.

    Kathy, I’m really enjoying this series! Loved the analogy of making outfits-makes so much sense when you put it that way. While it’s been ages since I’ve created a book these techniques will be helpful in other areas such as card making and home decor. And now of course I want a Xyron, Hehehehe. Happy New Year!

    I loved all three of these videos and they were so helpful. I am wondering about the base books you created to place these mats into. Can you let us know where to find the tutorial for these books in your shop are? Thanks so much for teaching us the art of papercrafting.
