I agree...Tombo Multi has never failed me! I use tiny little lines instead of dots....my cards sit for months at a time.

I still think it's indefensible to copy someone else's work because you don't have a fresh idea. If you have to cheat at a little county fair, you shouldn't bother to enter. It has nothing to do...

I would "feel" that the other person was severely lacking in creativity and integrity if they had to copy my design. Designing the card is the hard part. There's no excuse for that, especially in a...

Brenda71 is right. I accidentally left mine in the car (in Arizona) after a card making night and they are very misshapen, but I use a brush and they work fine.

I do the flowers last....sometimes I move them around a dozen times or more before I find the right placement. Sometimes, I have to add more and on occasion I decide that a flower won't work.

I make a lot of 5.5 x 5.5......you can get a lot of "stuff" on it. I like the A2 size, but those are usually my quick cards. I agree that the envelopes are universal and easier to get, though.

I don't find it appealing at all...just too random. That said, I wish I owned stock in the Washi tape company, because a lot of people seem to binge on the stuff. :)

Not quite on topic, but I personally love and use French Foliage so much that I would probably pay a lot more than it's worth to own it......but I do understand what the OP is up against!

When I use the superfine glitter, I don't even bother to add glue any more. That stuff sticks to everything in it's path. I just rub it in a little. For more dimension, I agree with Angelnorth....

Tombo-Multi - very thin on 4 sides - sometimes a diagonal line if it's a larger piece. I never worry that a card will fall apart.
