Tips and Tutorials on the 22 #16

Welcome to the 16th edition of Tips and Tutorials on the 22nd! It is affectionately known as #TTot22 in hashtag land. After a few months of thinking about it, I am trying a new way of doing this party. As your hostess, I will curate Tips and Tutorials from things I have seen during the month. Most will be newer, but if one of us finds a treasure from the past, they are sure worth sharing. Also, I don’t see everything, so if I missed one, please let me know and I’ll add it to next months list. The links will also be in my Pinterest Tips/Tutorials Board right when I post it.

First up some Tips for this month:

Tutorials for April:

I’d like to know in the comments if you prefer this to having a linky party? I promise to get these upon the Tips and Tutorials Pinterest board, too. I am thinking this is easier for everyone – I collect things as I see them and know that there will be a curated list of at least a half dozen tips and tutes for you!

Thanks for all your support and looking forward to hearing your comments on this new format!

    I think this is a nice format. The thing I love about a linky party are the sneak peak images, but if this works for you then I say it’s wonderful. Thanks for linking to my Diffraction tutorial. 🙂

    I am not a blogger so I don’t have anything to link. However, I do like this format for viewing other people’s creations and tutorials.

    I do love link parties, but this idea sounds wonderful as well. It is amazing at how many tips are out there, isn’t it? Blessings.

    I agree with Yvonne, the sneak peek images certainly draw you in. How would a format work of including a couple of tips discovered by you AND those of readers?
