If you really want a stamp, this (http://shop.endlesscreations.info/FF36-KBs-Snowman-Looking-Up-w-Heart-Buttons-FF36.htm) is the most similar image I've seen. Personally, I don't see that "digital...

A key trick with an intricate shape cut from double sided tape is not to peel off all the backing in one go. Peel back just a small portion to expose a bit of sticky, position it where you want it...

The difficulty with a ball shape is that the surface is sloping down in all directions from the point of contact so you can't get the stamp to touch the ball and leave a clear impression. Stamping...

Just a word of warning - it's not a good idea to use alcohol on your acrylic blocks. It will work miracles and you'll think you've hit on the best idea ever but over time it's likely to degrade the...

If you're using very detailed stamps, hot press is the way to go as the texture on cold press will mean the detail gets lost easily. The Ranger stuff sounds like it's worth a go though - it would be...

Oooh lucky you - I got a couple of Walnut Hollow oil-based pencils in a mixed batch that was mostly wax-based (Prsimacolor type) and they're lovely! I agree they'll work on just about any paper, just...

Yes, a good wash as per Arlene's suggestion usually restores the cling on any stamp that's backed with cling cushion. Even plain water will generally do the trick. Leave your stamps to air dry after...

It doesn't claim to be Adirondack though. For sure it's overpriced and stating that the list price is $27.77 sounds downright dishonest to me - I'm sure Ranger are not stating that as the price...

Not just that - many don't allow for "near misses" or "same thing, different name". So if you type "reinker" and the store's database calls it something different, you'll get zero results. In this...

No, Stazon won't wash of but that's probably a good thing (you don't want something that's going to smear onto people's clothes etc if they brush against it). You could use a rag dampened with a bit...

They did go digital but, as the post Leslie linked to says, even that is ceasing with effect from the Feb 2015 issue - no more PaperCrafts and Scrapbooking I'm afraid.

Best of luck and good wishes...

There's no hard and fast rule for how long a blade lasts, I'm afraid. Paper does tend to dull blades and regular replacement is one way to ensure your cuts stay clean. I have a guillotine-style...
