here's a couple of these i have learned
1. go online. just to get their 800#
2. order by pre wrapped bundles.
3. ?????? the cost of s/h. the woman i spoke to let me know it cost more to ship to a home rather than a business. you can make your home into a business address.
i do this by using..
jane doe
c/0 stampi up
town,state,zip code.
the savings are worth this.
4. i do a bulk order w/ local friends. we have ordered more the 10,000 at a time. do local so there is no shipping w/ friends
5. remember besides calendars you can use for christmas ornaments. do a search in SCS gallery. lots of ideas.

Are your multi colored leaves all staz-on ink?

Half I left natural and the other half that I colored I used stazon and used qtips to color. I also did multi colored fall leaves on a bunch and had no problem with them either. There is a picture in my gallery. I just bought a 24 pack of sharpies to try for this year for adding color but may still just stay with the stazon for coloring if you think the sharpies were the problem.

Yep, I rinse/scrub gently mine too, I think Gina K mentions that in her video too. I let mine air dry in an old fashion drainer on my counter top for a couple of hours. I think preparation is key on these.

When you use pegboard or hinged boards on your table for your display, how do you make sure it doesn't fall over? I would love to have one on my table but fear it will fall over onto everything or someone. By the way, I envy that in the US the norm is to have booths and what would over here be classed as very large scale events. Here the norm is one 6 foot table for about 20 per day!
I don't use a pegboard but wanted to tell you welcome to SCS! It's a great place - feel free to jump in and share your ideas!

It was definitely the stazon ink, not the part i had colored. I was so surprised. I even thought I was imagining things, so I left an icy cup on them again as a test, and sure enough, it was where the stazon was stamped. I could rub it off with my thumb. I also clean them before stamping, with a baby wipe...I wouldn't think that could have caused the problem because they were completely dry afterwards. Hmmm. Makes me want to do another test. I DID bake them though, so that should have heat set the ink, right?

Wonder if your ink was old? I had a problem with old stazon a long time ago. That being said I didn't know it came in colors! I buy 90% of my stuff from SU and they only have black now I think.

Do baby wipes have a little oil in them? I would wipe the tile down with rubbing alcohol and let dry for an hour or 2 before stamping. Then try it again.

I use baby wipes to clean my stamps. It takes SU ink off completely and I use stazon cleaner too for the stazon ink. I bet it is the baby wipes that is making your colors run and not letting your ink set. Make sure your rubber is clean and rinsed and dry before inking it so you don't get any in your ink pads. Only clean your tiles with water and let them dry completely and then stamp them. Let me know if this works because I haven't had any problems.

I have never cleaned my tiles with baby wipes, but it makes sense that they might leave a little residue on the tiles. I wash my tiles well with water and a clean dish scrubber and then let them dry overnight before stamping. Also make sure that you stamp with stazon and then let it dry overnight before coloring with sharpies. Sometimes I even stamp the stazon, then bake, then color with sharpies, then bake again, and THEN seal with spray sealer. Overkill right???

I am also a tole painter. When you paint on glass, you always clean with rubbing alcohol to make sure all oil, etc. is off. You could do the same with the tile, I would think.
I hope we have solve your problem. No more baby wipes before stamping.

I am making some pet record books for boutiques but am not sure how much to sell them for. Can anyone help me with pricing these. I have not seen others around. Do any of you make something similar?
You can see them here on this opening page. There are other things too, but the kitty and puppy records are labeled, also a shot of inside pages are on the page.
<< Please attach SCS gallery photos ... Thanks!>>
Thanks in advance.

'Somewhere' on this site (I think this is where I saw it) someone posted a place where you could order tile from - it was a whiter tile, but it was flat - not full of holes - and shipping was free and it was pretty much what we paid for them at the stores. Anyone remember seeing that and can lead me to where it was? I'm going to search for it too. I didn't see it on the threads here when I went through them.
I made different types of calendars last year as Christmas gifts for teachers, family, and friends. That is good to know that they sell well. I will have to add them onto my list. For some of them I bought 12 x 12 chipboard from Walmart.com and cut it down, covered with paper and used my Bind-it-all. I also made some with magnets on the back. Here are some photos of how they turned out: <>Chipboard Desk Calendar. I also altered clipboards into calendars, but those take a bit longer to do, so I am trying to decide if I make some of them for an upcoming Craft Show or not. Here are some pictures of one of them: <> Anyway thanks for the reminder about the calendars!

Jenn, your chipboard desk calendar and altered clipboards both turned out great! I agree that the clipboards are a lot of work! I have actually taken them off my list for this year, but might do them next year...

Thank you for all the advice!!!! I feel bad though, I recommended to someone on here that if they mess up while stamping on a tile to immediately use a baby wipe to clean it off. I hope they are still reading!!!!

Very nice! I've done some clipboards too, and yes, they seem to take a while....but I do like how they turn out. How much do you sell them for, and to they sell well?

I got a lot of ideas from Kerry @ Kerry's Paper Crafts. She is a sweetheart! Another one to credit is Angie Juda @ Chic 'n Scratch. Both are very talented and so generous to share their ideas on their blogs.

I will post more pics from my spring show this year...
Great display. Love the step idea.

I wonder if that's why mine run too. I used Stazon ink, but was able to wipe off quite a bit even the next day. I'll try doing it again without using any baby wipe! Thanks for the tip.

Thanks for the complement! I actually haven't tried to sell them. I have just recently started making things to sell at an upcoming local Craft Show in November. Depending how that goes will let me know if I want to pursue making a small business out of doing paper crafts or just keep enjoying making them as gifts.

I actually designed them on Microsoft Office Publisher. I love that program! Once I got the size set I saved it on my computer and printed off several. On the small ones I was able to get 9 to a page and on the medium sized ones for the clipboards I got 2 per page.

Just wondered why you spray with a sealer?? I thought one of the features of using the tumble marble tiles is the absorbency and if sprayed with a sealer they would no longer be absorbent. I checked with my daughter who has been using a set for hot and cold beverages and she said there has been no bleeding or fading. She has been using them for about 8 months. I haven't used any sealer and have not baked them, but they were done with all stazon ink. I guess I will experiment with one tile with the stazon/sharpie combination and check for bleeding before I do a bunch.

First off, welcome to Splitcoast! You will love it here! As for the paint cans, they make super "Teacher survival kits", "Parents Survival kits", Pamper me kits, sports themed kits...etc. Here is a great sie with all sorts of ideas about what to put inside, then do a search here to see how people decorate them. They should sale great!

Yes, this is a great thread with a bunch of talented people. It sure has helped me a lot! There are all kinds of ideas in this website's Gallery. If you haven't searched the Gallery before all you have to do is select the Search option on the left side and type in Paint cans. You will see lots of neat ideas. Here are a few that I like:

Tags or Hot Chocolate anyone? by Butternutsage - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

Christmas Paint cans by Monique Hansen - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

Not a Probl. TOTALLY understand. LOL

Took a break at the office, grabbed a big cup of java and checked out a bunch of the survival kits. AWESOME. Each can be easily modified to fit in various sized containers and I have no doubt they will sell very well at holiday craft sales.

Thanks so much for sharing this site.

My tiles are stamped with stazon ink and colored with SU chalks. My first attempt at the tiles was to bake them but when I tested them, the color ran. The best thing that has worked for me has been to seal them with the acrylic sealer. Check my gallery for samples of some of the tiles I have done. The tumbled tile coasters have sold well at the local market. I will be doing trivets using the larger tumbled tiles and will post pics as soon as I can.

May I ask what everyone charges for their altered paint cans? I found some clear paint can's at M's recently and thought they were very expensive - $9.?? a can. Didn't seem like a feasible project at that price. Where are you finding your cans and how much are you paying for them? The samples shown here are very cute and would sell well I'm sure.

I don't seal my tumbled tiles. But I don't color them in with pastels or anything. sometimes I use Sharpies for some color, but I like to leave them black or brown because then I don't get people saying they don't match their colors at home. I use Stayzon ink and that's pretty much it. Most people (when I did them for a sale) asked if they were sealed, as they didn't want them sealed. I never really thought of it when I did it, but they ended up that way.

I did make trivets last year for gifts and I used paint to decorate (with the SU! stencils) and I did bake and seal those. Just because I thought they would last longer with the hot stuff going on them. Just used a spray sealer (and just about killed us all in the house! - Winter, spray can of stuff, not a good combination!).

And with the dusty tiles, I found that if I rinsed them (and you do have to do something with the dust - wipe, rinse or something) I had to let them sit a very long time. If they have any moisture in them still, the stamping can be a problem. I just wipe mine down with a damp rag and then it doesn't take as long to dry.

And I think in other posts too people talked about red colors being problem bleeders. I do remember (one of the first tiles I did) coloring with red permanent marker and that bleeding a bit. But the other colors didn't. Weird, but maybe there is something in making red that causes problems.

Everyone has different ways to do tiles and they all seem to work. They are pretty cheap, so buy some, test them out, do what works best for you. They are so fun to do and really easy.

Candles are really easy to do too. I love the candles I have seen with the Medallion stamp. And maybe a brad in the middle of that emblem. They are so pretty. I may add some of those to my table as well.

I love stamping on candles. My candles stamped with Flaky Friends were a bit hit for Christmas last year. Unfortunately, I have had no luck selling my candles at the market this summer. I used the roses from the Elements of Style and they look so pretty. I recently stamped a candle with the Medallion stamp with a crystal brad in the center. It also looks lovely but has not sold either. Maybe candles are more of a winter thing!!

I sprayed the coasters to protect the image. I used Krylon Triple-Thick Crystal Clear Glaze, which gives a bright, high-gloss finish, looks like glass, and gives the illusion of depth. I love the look of these - so "finished". I have used one of the sealed coasters for over 4 years and have never had a problem with condensation beading from cold drinks so I don't know why it would be a deterrent from people buying them? To each his own, I guess...
