What do you mean by "when I went to cut it, the pattern was extremely faded."? I am having a hard time picturing what is happening. That won't stop me hazarding a guess, though.

I started with one container of Perfect Pearls in champagne (I think that was the name, it was a neutral) and mixed my own misters using reinkers and water. It was a very cheap way to see how often I...

Picture frame for A2 card? What do you use?

What size photo frame would you use if you wanted to put an A2 card in it?

A 5 X 7 with a mat? Or is there someplace to get frames specifically sized for A2 cards?

The BS Pro is easier to crank than the regular old BS?

But did you use either your eBosser or Vagabond to cut chipboard and heavier stuff?

True, it's definitely not cheap.

I haven't heard the dead Vagabond stories. But then I haven't been looking for them. I guess I need to do more research.

I checked out the preview videos on the Cheery Lynn Crossover - this machine seems nice because it's adjustable, but it isn't motorized. There's a handle.

In my opinion you can never have too many colors. You'll use some more than others and need to replace them sooner, but it's good to have them all there.

That's my understanding as well. You can only add new fonts if the updates provide them. Otherwise, you can scan in words in any font you can produce, including your own handwriting.

I am a bit confused. You want to put the stamps loose in the envelopes? I've never seen that. Intriguing.

I can tell you from experience that the front of the stamps won't stick to paper, at least...

I think the magnets are to keep cardstock in place when you don't want to place it flush against the corner for some reason. It keeps the cardstock from moving.

This is very clever. The shimming...

Thanks, Jeanette. I always hesitate at the first sign of too much resistance. I'll try no tabs and shimming as the more conservative approach. :-)!

I was stunned that you could put a hot iron on that clear stamp and it didn't melt!

Very interesting video, I really enjoyed it! Even if I never get any fiber, it was fun to watch! :-)!
