I've got a huge bag of it. Cut out all the curves and save the flat portions; anything over 2" or so gets saved. Windows, floating cards, all kinds of fun stuff. Stamp it, punch it, emboss it (embossing folders), and use alcohol inks too. All kinds of possibilities.
This probably isn't the right spot, but not sure how to go about doing it in the right area. Here goes--I have a EK Success punch that has not been used more than a time or two and it will not cut a sharp edge on any paper. Cardstock or Designer paper. It just bends the one edge. I tried the aluminum foil and that didn't help. It is the Circle Chain edger punch. I can't find the receipt and I did a lot of looking. I think I got it at JoAnn's. Not sure. We are 4 hours round trip from there. Any suggestions other than to forget it?
I use some of the plastic packaging to make "patterns" of all my Nesties. When I cut out a shape/size for the first time, I cut out another on a scrap piece of paper. Then I have a plastic piece designated and labeled for that shape (i.e. Classic Scalloped Ovals) and I draw around the shape with a permanent marker (I find it easier to use the mortise shape) in its place on plastic so the shapes are concentric and label it L-#2 or S-#5 or whatever and keep them all in a plastic baggie. Then when I need to decide on what size die to use I can place the plastic over the card or stamp to see which fits best. This is not my idea. Creative Memories provides the plastic "pattern" with their circle and oval cutting system.
