If they're the same strength as the 8.5x11" sheets you can get from Oriental Trading (they have adhesive on one side) or the rolls of magnetic sheets from stores like Hobby Lobby (also with adhesive...

If you're open on styles, you can try Tuesday Morning. They often have full packs of paper there (25 or 50 sheets of the same paper) for less than $10; most are less than $5. I've seen Graphic 45...

I think you likely undercharged. The way I figure pricing is to add up my supply costs (even DSP you already had cost you something), figure out how long it will take to make and factor in my hourly...

I really like Ranger's embossing ink. It holds the powder well, doesn't stick to my stamps (the Versamark pad usually comes up with my stamp after inking) and smells like cinnamon.

That's what I've used, though I only have the old formulation of Twinkling H2Os. However, I'd assume that any non-water based permanent archival-style ink would work. So, anything that you can use...

Since when? It's been a while since I've used a CB, but it always handed the same size dies as the BS. Now, the Big Shot Pro does handle bigger dies, but that machine costs quite a bit more.

I love it. I had a Sizzix Express that died on the first use (it was a common motor issue they had) and Sizzix replaced it quickly and with the Vagabond. The Vagabond is well designed and so much...

I don't think I've tried chalk with Copics, but I have tried them with watercoloring. They run when wet. Copics are made of ethanol, so it doesn't get them "wet" but it may dissolve them. The type...

Ain't that the truth?!
