since drywall tape is sticky, do you just dump the powder right on and then heat?

thanks-I'll have to try. I just uploaded a card to my gallery w/drywall tape. I wished it was a little browner, but now I can emboss!

Hope this isn't a repeat from me but , I like to use a clipboard to heat emboss. Saves my fingers and keeps my paper for flying away. Recently I learned from another stamper that she uses her tag punch to punch extra wasted bulk behind layers of her artwork. The tag punch is also a great way to use up all those small scraps.

I haven't read all entries in this thread, but sure picked up some good ideas. Will spend more time in here later. I hope this is not a repeat, but i put my embossing powder in salt shakers. Then all if have to do is shake out the power over my design and it doesn't come out in globs.

I haven't read all the posts to this thread - but this is a great couple of ideas

Just to add to a great tip, I put aluminum foil under the project to reflect the heat for a faster melt down.

Melt down...kinda sounds like all of us when they take our stamps away!

I like using a pair of my bamboo kitchen tongs to hold items while I emboss them.

If you can find a place that uses tons of large sheets of paper daily (engineers, drafters, surveyors, etc.) and just toss them. Ask for the freebies! I use mine to cover my stamping surface.

Is your cut and paste finger sore this morning! Mine was when I did the sketch and card photo file. So I know it took a while to do all this and I thank you!

Now if new ideas come in anyone can cut and paste to this file after you save it to your computer.

Here you are
Forums at Splitcoaststampers
Julia S started this with just the sketches and I was working on putting the photos in for my own use and someone requested a file of just what I was doing, so I finished it, uploaded and they made it a sticky.
If you don't need the card photos there is a link to Julia's file in mine thread. The files will save to Microsoft Word. Due to attachemnts sizes they had to be broken down into mulitple files.
The thread can be found in the challenge forum at the top of the sketch challenge forum.
I think that about covers it! If you have any comments about it please post to that thread, don't take up space on this one please!

A tip I just learned is to use a piece of plastic canvas as a template for paper piercing. I have cut a 7 mesh rectangle to fit the front of a card. I've also used a circle to pierce in a perfect circle. A square also enables you to pierce and use a marker to "sew" zig zag, but ensure that you line it up carefully first and pierce every second line in two rows, then fill in with a marker. It's such a cheap but effective tool.

OK..this is a simple tip...but when you're lousy at measuring CS for layering. Go ahead and mount your layer to the cardstock where you need it to be and save the last side for cutting on the paper trimmer. Hmm...boy..that sounds clear as mud......hope you know what I mean LOL

Thanks SO much for doing this! I have been printing out a few of the ideas, but I know I missed some really good ones along the way. I just printed off your lovely compilation of the thread (all 7 pages!) and will sit down with a highlighter and mark my most favorite ones!

You can save the small spoons from ice cream stores that let you sample a flavor. Work great with glitter or EP. I collect mine at coldstone creamery or 31 flavors!
Sorry, I posted this before I read the whole thread. Sorry for the repeat.

hehe it's fun to see that this thread is still running after all this time. Wow compiling all of those was quite the job I'm sure. My newest tip is the craft and rubber scissors are even better than a bone folder for folding cardstock. The handles don't leave the shiny line.

Default cord control

I just discovered another nifty use for a hair product....you know those claw-like hair clips that the girls wear now (look like 2 jaws coming together -DYKWIM?) ? Anyway, the medium size of this works wonderfully well to hold a bundled up cord of a hair dryer, heat gun, coffee grinder or other small home appliance. They are easy to get all the cording into and also quick release when you want to use the item - they are inexpensive, as well - just picked up a package of 6 at the dollar store!

I use a doll stand to hold my embossing gun. I did glue a 4x4 piece of heavy cardboard to the bottom to give it balance. Then I have my hands free to move my project around

I am taking notes ... these are great!

My two best tips have to do with storage. (I'm an organizational freak.)

1. I have my paper in one of those literature holders (multiple slots) you can get at Officemax. I like to keep my stamp pads in those slots too - classic pad on the right and craft pad on the left. That way the two pads and the matching paper are all together. I keep larger clean scrap pieces with them too.

2. I have a couple of cup hooks screwed into the wall in my craft room, lay a curtain rod across them and have all of my ribbon spools on the rod. I can pull off just what I need and they're easy to get at.

3. I use a toothbrush to scrub craft ink off my background stamps.

I would have to agree with those that said using the brayer to ink background stamps. I never tried it until about a week ago....wow what a difference!!!

There is another tip that I have seen posted previously on SCS. Instead of buying colored staples, you can just take regular staples and color them with Sharpies. It works really well.

Talking what a great thread...

I can't remember where I saw this next tip. I know it was on another site about a year and a half ago when I first started investigating paper crafts in general.

Anyway...This woman on this other site mentioned that she was looking for a good way to store and organize all her 12x12 paper and cardstock. She said she started thinking about other things that are 12x12 inches. Then she remembered vinyl record albums (remember those?) are 12" in diameter. Album collectors are pretty fanatical about proper storage of their albums and have a lot of great storage options. This is the site she mentioned (and that I bookmarked), but I am sure there are other sources for this kind of thing.

They have some great boxes with dividers for storage, some mailing boxes that might be great for scrapbook pages in progress, and some 12x12 frames for those pages that are just too beautiful to languish away in an album on the shelf. OH! and remember to look for things for 33 1/3 albums.

[QUOTE=Rox71 I heat my embossing powder from underneath to avoid fly away.[/QUOTE]

Awesome tip! I store my clear embossing powder in a tupperware bowl with a spoon. It's the one I use the most and it makes it easy to sprinkle the EP onto my project and then shake off right back into the bowl.

I also store a lot of my tools in my Pampered Chef turnabout Utensil thingy (you can see I'm very technical-minded!). It's perfect for my handheld hole punches, paintbrushes, scissors - lots of stuff!
