WOW! What a brilliant idea, I'm forever misplacing those clear lids! Thanks

Default Pesky hemp bows

I just thought of this one tonight...
You know how those hemp bows don't like to stay tied? Or the metallic cord, for that matter. Well, a little dot of crystal effects on the knot will hold that bow forever!

I'm not sure exactly but what I have done is rubberbanded a piece of paper to my bottle of CE. I stick the pin through the paper so it's always there with the bottle. I think the tape idea is similar.

The reason why bleach is stored in opaque containers because when exposed to light it starts to decompose, releasing toxic chlorine gas.

As a CHEAP replacement for pop dots or dimensionals, I buy the 3M foam mounting tape from Home Depot. 1/2 inch x 3 yards for less than $3 or 3/4 inch x 16 yards for less than $10.

I can get probably more than 5 times the # of pieces for the same price

Smile another Glue Dot alternative

I've used the scraps from trimming my SU stamps, I keep them in big ziplocks in my cupboard. First I pull off the rubber, cut to size and voila~ I have a pop up sticky dot.

That's a great idea. I've been saving them to make background stamps - but haven't done that yet. I like your idea better. Thanks

I use my Watercolor Wonder Crayons a lot. Sometimes I like using watercolor paint instead of coloring and then blending, though.

When the tips get dull I sharpen them. I keep the shavings from my WWC in small watchmaker tins I found at Lee Valley, and label them with the colour name. Then, when I want to paint with watercolors, I have a collection of shavings to pick from. Just add water and voila!

This way you don't waste any of those wonderful WWC!!!

I also found some glue spreaders at Lee Valley that are great for spreading glue to the edges of paper to avoid oozing. They are great, and really easy to clean!

Wow....I kinda sound like an ad for Lee Valley, don't I! Oooops!

I'm really just bumping this... but I will also suggest that If you are "blowing off" that last little bit bit of embossing powder, or dazzling diamonds, etc that won't fall off the paper after you heat set.... do not blow directly into your powder pal.... like they say, "ask me how I know THAT!"

I just read this one somewhere on SCS recently, and I have not read through all of these hints, so sorry if I am repeating.
When using a brush, aqua pen, or blender pen with your watercolor crayons, take the color from the bottom end of the crayon instead of the tip, so you will have a tip longer, in case you want to color with it.

blender pen tips. when they get fat and spread apart. I use scissors and slightly cut the tip off where it has the color on it. then the rest can be used over and over again until it needs to be cut again. I have done this several times with mine from SU. and I add a little water to the end and they will last a long time. I have had mine for about 4 years now,

~ I buy the largest/widest rolls of wrapping paper after the holidays when it is 75-90% off. I flip it over (white side up) and cover my tables when I have groups of people stamping here.

~ I use Hermafix Transfer, now renamed Dotto to hold cardstock to brass templates and the coluzzle templates so they do not move while I am embossing or cutting. The glue dots simply rub off when I am finished. I also use it to hold cutouts when I am masking.

~ I write in my Idea Book and Catalog and strongly encourage my clients to do the same. I mark everything I buy and the date I bought it. Saves me time and effort running back to my supplies and checking. It also helps prevent duplicate purchases from my clients and then having to return it.

~ When adding folded ribbon to a project, I always glue the fold. Then I glue it to the project and THEN add the brad or staple to it.

Hope these help. As I think of them, I will post more.

Did anybody posted about the simple green for cleaning stamps tip??
If not: you can use simple green to clean stamps and if you are worried about the rubber just put a few drops of glycerin.
If yes.........sorry for posting it again!!

Default Use a wire letter sorter

I use a wire letter sorter to hold my cutting boards and paper I'm currently using. Very handy to see them and grab when I need them. Great for home or at crops.

Ok I've got one I just learned today and it's so super easy I can't believe I didn't think of it before. I was using brads on a card and was getting those sharp little prongs between my nail and my finger flesh. Use a credit card to push the prongs apart and save your flesh.

I also use Avon Skin so soft bath oil to clean my scissors...works great and smells good too!!!

Also for measuring eyelets, I use a piece of plastic canvas. works like a charm!

My tip came from Jenn....Balcer, that is......if you don't have an eyelet guide, use the top of an order form (the part you tear off to separate the pages). Works perfectly.

Anyone with tips on how to spend less time doing things OTHER than stamping? LOL!! I never seem to have enough time!

I keep a shallow container on my table to hold the brads and small pieces wating to be used. Until I wised up, I was always loosing brads and eyelets and crawling around on the floor looking for them before the cat tried to eat them. It also keeps the cat from batting them off the table if I leave everything out in the middle of a project.

I do the same, and my demo even mentioned this one. I save a lot of the rubber scraps when trimming stamps. Also, if you are trimming a background stamp that has a lot of large pieces of excess rubber such as French Flair, use those pieces for mounting acrylic stamps if you have some. No need to purchase that mounting cushion. Remove the pink rubber first.

Default Dental Floss

If you need to pull thread or yarn through a punched hole and don't have a needle, use dental floss. Double the floss over to make a loop and feed the ends through the hole. Open the loop and insert the ends of your yarn and then pull the loop and the yarn through the hole, kind of like a lasso. This works great. Make sure you use a long enough piece of floss to get a good grip to pull on it.

Does anyone know anything about the Wal-Mart Offray ribbon? I saw this comment and wondered... And I don't see an answer anywhere. Surely it's just a rumor that got started without any substance. But I'm still curious.

I wonder if this could have something to do with whether or not it's archival? Maybe you aren't supposed to use it in scrapbooks? I've used it on my cards and never had a problem....

Does anyone have any tips or techniques for working with flocking? An old demo gave me 25+ containers of it, some of them never opened. I love the look of it, but it does tend to be pretty messy, so I'm looking for some ideas...

I use my exacto knife. I also use it to start the hole for brads too. I have a blade that the tip broke off of (don't ask, I use my knife for EVERYTHING! LOL). I put that blade in and stab straight into the paper where I want the brad to be located. Insert brad, turn paper over, use knife to separate the prongs. Works like a charm and you don't take the chance of leaving a cc at any get togethers

Ya know when you stamp something and want to punch it, but the piece of cs you stamped on is too small to hold and position in the stamp? Maybe I'm the only one that does that. Well, if you use a temporary adhesive and attach it to a piece of copy paper, you can position it easily in the punch. Just remove the copy paper from the punched piece and there ya go.

Also, if you want to add adhesive to small, intricate pieces, just put them through the little x Xyron and after you removed the protective/sticky piece of paper, rub with your finger to remove all the extra adhesive before applying it to your project.

Traveling page idea for your scrapbooks.


If you are needing or wanting a map for a place you traveled. Use your Atlas find the area your traveling to and scan or use a copy machine copy the page for 10 cents or nothing if you know someone who has one. Or if you have a city map which is a bigger print of the area, copy it on your white cardstock in color. And wahhlaa you have your very own copy of that area. to use as a background for your scrapbook page.

iT'S MUCH MORE PERSONAL THAN ANY MAP FROM WHO NEARS WHERE.

AN ORIENTAL PAGE. When you go eat out at a chinese restaraunt take a copy of the menu, the chopsticks and the paper folder they come in. Apply these to your page as accents or embellishments.

Default Ribbon organizer

My demo gave me this tip. Target sells white plastic baskets with holes all over (maybe for shower caddies?) and a coiled wire handle, very reasonably priced. Take a dowel, run it through a hole under the handle on one end, threads ribbon spools onto the dowel inside the caddy, and run the dowel through the corresponding hole on the other end. The dowel should be about one inch longer than the basket on each side. I found some dowels precut at ACM that were the perfect size and length. Then wrap a rubber band around the end of the dowel a few times on both ends, to keep it from slipping out.

The ribbon can be fed through the holes on the sides of the basket and pulled out as needed, and the spools will turn on the dowel. I have one for grosgrain, one for organdy, and one for non-SU ribbon. It's so easy to pick up the one I need and carry it to my desk. Also easy to remove the rubber band and replace a finished spool or add a new one.

Not an organizing tip, but an economy: I always check out the sale yarn, usually near the front of ACM or Michaels, and often find something appropriate for embellishing cards. One skein goes a long way!

Thanks for all your wonderful tips!
