Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
Q: Lin asked: "I have never had too much success with white pens, jell, or otherwise. What do you recommend? I have gone to using silver where I would like to use white."
A: A lot of stampers have problems with white gel pen. Check this thread for some great suggestions to get them back working again.
 
Feedback From Past Tutorials
Maria has a suggestion for the Bendi Fold tutorial: "I came to the conclusion that to mail them, you do it putting the card FLAT inside the envelope and maybe you can write a little note to the recipient with the directions on how to put the tabs through the openings. I think this would be the right way to send this in the mail without having to put it in a box or risk damaging the beautiful card in transit."
