I have a Tonic brand guillotine - the one where the platform is a full 12x12+, and that ended my quest for a cutter. It has a plastic guard that the paper slides under and you have to remember to...

I have several of the Tim Holtz rosette dies - for the rosettes and for snowflakes - and sometimes the cut piece wants to separate on the perforations. He suggests reinforcing the back side with some...

I did that exact thing with "Knobbly Gnomes" - stalked Ebay and b/s/t here for probably 2 years or more, waiting for one to come up at a price I was willing to pay. Finally got one - great...

When I first saw the MISTI, I wanted one and planned on ordering, but there was a long wait for them and I decided to stick to my resolution to not buy a new tool until it had been in use by people...

I've done this with a couple of the different label dies where I wanted a smaller border. You can save a little time by just cutting around the outside of the die with an Xacto knife. I've seen...

This will sound weird, but if you go to Sally Beauty Supply and buy a big ol' bottle of Blue Cross Cuticle Remover, that stuff takes off EVERYTHING - and it's not super expensive. You just put a...

I just use the white tissue paper to stamp the image and trim it close, glue it to the foam and let it dry. There should be a border of foam that's not covered by the tissue paper. Once it's dry, I...

I've done this with a silver sharpie and it worked great. I had a new pen where the tip wasn't mushed down at all, and used a very light touch. This was with one of SU's flip-it dies, where if the...

The tack-it-over-and-over on the foam works great; the double-thick not so much: it actually makes the stamp kind of unstable and makes for a worse impression.

The thing is, with these stamps that...

I've used both Goo Gone and Un-Du and it worked great. I did have a bowl of soapy water next to me and threw the rubber in there to make sure all the solvent was washed off it. I've had some like...

But the set my demo had, the extra cushion didn't work. It only helped somewhat. When you took a really good look at the stamp, you could see that it had a depression in the area that wasn't...

As far as I know, SU does not sell off their inventory in bulk after a set retires; it's my understanding that they press their own rubber so they don't end up with a great deal of excess inventory...

You also want to be careful with magnets around anything that's supposed to hold a gift card - it can mess with the mag stripe on the card and make it unreadable:)

Yes! I remember being fascinated by the catalog with the printed papers for flyers and invites and wanting to try the foils - but we didn't have anything at work that we needed them for.
