Thanks for the tip on drywall tape!!! I have about 4 rolls left over after building my craft room and have no desire to ever dry wall again!

Wow, thanks for sharing everyone-This is an awesome thread--but I haven't had time to read through it all so I hope this isn't a repeat but one of my favorite organizational items is an over the door shoe holder. I have a clear one that I put large punches, xyron refills, gladware with embossing powders, etc. in it.
I hope ya'll don't don't mind if I share some of these on my website.

Thank you for the great tips. I am going to buy some Kyrlon Matte spray tip for water coloring and the paint edger refill for cleaning my stamps. Would the Kyrlon spray work with H20's too?

I saw stackable office 'in/out' mail trays at a local dollare store, so I am going to buy a bunch to store my cardstock in by color. I am hoping this will make it easier to find the colors I want and to see what I have.

Default List of Tips!

I've updated Nan's list to this point. I did make it a little easier to find things by putting them in subject matter. Totally awesome tips from everyone! Not too many doubles, either!

[quote=stampin_annie]I too have a scrap piece of c/s with the tag punched out...us it to go through the catty and see how many images will fit on the tag.
Simply lay the open space over the images...viola.

Here is a post I made that has a list of stamp sets and coordinating punches. I made a template of all the punches as suggested at convention. I used that to make up this list.

You know how when you want to stamp just part of an image and you use the markers to color it; 'huff' on it and stamp and the heat from your breath activates ink residue on the parts you DIDN'T want to stamp so you get a faint image of the unwanted parts? Put a piece of scotch tape over the parts you don't want to stamp!

Each time you use the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig, stamp the image on a piece of vellum CS instead of the plastic sheet that comes with it. Be sure to mark the top with an arrow pointing up. Keep these with the stamps and that way, you won't have to stamp the image on the image sheet every time and then clean it off!

This is A great thread.Just A couple of things to add.
1. The stampin up ink pads have dots on them that indicate what color family they are in. A diferent # for each color family.
2. Also you can make your own pop dots by running fun foam through A Zyron machine.

Thanks again for all the great tips. I am a new demo and love all the tips! You people are AWESOME!!!

I love tweezers to pick-up brads and smaller embellishments. I have the tweezers that are always closed and you have to squeeze to open the end. No more fat fingers in the way of trying to pick things up!

This may have already been posted but I don't have time to read all of these great ideas at once. I just read in Paper Crafts one of the best time savers, although I made me feel pretty stupid that I didn't already do this. BEFORE you cut your cardstock to make your card base score both pieces, then cut. DUHH!! I have been preping for SAS class for over a year and I never thought of it.

I'm so glad to see this thread is still alive! Another tip I found in the last year is for the wood mount for stamps that get stained from the ink pads.

I just take a small piece of fine grit sandpaper and sand the wood blocks. Takes most of the ink off. In some cases I use a little coarser grit sandpaper and a little more elbow grease. I have never had a stain on wood that I couldn't get out this way.

If the block is heavily stained, I just pop the stamp/wood into the microwave for 5 seconds. Pull the stamp off, sand the stamp block then put the stamp back on. Usually the glue is still sticky enough that I don't have to reglue.

Default my "crop-o-dile"

When I saw the crop-o-dile it looked oddly familiar to me. My dad is a carpenter and as a young girl I spent a lot of time "building" with him in his workshop. I was sure I had used a similar tool and went looking at the hardware store. Well, there it was - a punch and eyelet setter for leather really, and it was on sale for just $4.99 (regular $7.99). It punches 5 different sizes and sets the eyelets. oh yeah... it came with 100 bonus eyelets! This is not the first time scrapbooking tools looked oddly familiar to me and I've found a similar and cheaper tool in the hardware store. It just doesn't have the pink handles

Great deal. What's the name of the tool? Where did you get it? I would love to have one of those, but am not willing to shell out 30 bucks.

This tool is not a particular brand. The packaging simply says "leather punch." There are some that only punch the holes, there are others that set the eyelets but this one does both as it has a removeable extra piece for setting. I'm in Canada and got it at a place called Princess Auto. They do have on-line shopping but I don't know if they ship to the US.

I am very fussy about my wood blocks. I can't stand it when they get stained. I have started spraying the wood blocks with matte finish sealant before I mount my stamps. It has helped considerably with ink on the blocks. I can usualy scrub the ink off.

Amy - I am having one of those moments - too early in the morning, maybe...
At any rate, I can't picture what you mean by scoring both pieces - how are there two?

I take it to mean: two make two cards, score your piece of cs down the length and then cut it in half. This way you don't have to score twice. I do this - it saves more time than you'd expect! Hope this helps. And if it's not what you meant, please enlighten!

Ahhh, thanks! Makes sense! And I think I have done this before...I just forget to do it usually!

Here is the link for it. It's on sale right now for $4.99. The store in Coquitlam isn't too far from me. I'm going to have to check it out tomorrow.
Great tip...thanks Kim

Thanks, Bagpuss. Now it makes sense!

I can also prevent static when embossing by getting one of my baby's old socks and putting some talcum powder onto it. Works like a treat.

About the scoring...I made some "double" tag punches yesterday and this was the perfect tip for them! Can you imagine scoring each one? Ugh. TFS

I don't remember if "double" tag punches were in here -- What you do is: cut CS to 3.5x8.5; fold at 1.75"; hold your tag punch just to the right of the fold line and punch. Voila! I also stamped these after punching and realized that the wheels were perfect for this so I made some after I wheeled full sheets of CS. I got 15 tags out of a single sheet. I am sure I read this somewhere on SCS before; I just hope it wasn't in this post!

If you use a small stylus to score, you can often score 3-4 sheets at time with good pressure. This is great also when you are tracing multiples of things! You need one with a fine enough tip to make a good impression, but not so fine that it cuts the paper.

My wonderful demo, Eleonor had a class yesterday and she did a really cool thing. She punched out a flower from a piece of cardstock and then used the piece of cardstock (not the flower, but the edging around it) for dry embossing. Wow! It turned out great, just like using the brass embossing plate. I also like the fact that it is another way to use your punches.

Keep your glue sticks in a zip loc bag to keep them from drying out. I don't do a lot of workshops, so I have a lot of time between, so my gluesticks were drying out! In fact, as an experiment, I added a little water to one that was really dry, just to see if it would rehydrate. After leaving it in a plastic bag overnight, it did! Prevention is best though.

I have started to copy my sticker shet before I mount my stamps. I place the copy in the bottom of the container. When one is missing I know exactly what I am looking for!
